Spin-off: Fake lashes Poll

posted 2 months ago in Beauty
  • poll: False eyelashes—do you wear them?

    Every day. I feel naked without them.

    Only for special occasions or when I dress up to go somewhere fancy.

    Only when I fear could run into someone I know at the grocery store.

    I have worn them a few times.

    Meh.

    My attempts always fail.

    Bish, stop being so vain.

    They violate my feminist/minimalist principles.

    I have a fake lash horror story (please describe).

    I like Ardel lashes and duo glue. The trick for me is to really let the glue get tacky (I wait like 45-50 seconds) before applying. I’ve never had an issue with them coming off. I wear them for special occasions only mostly because it’s kind of a hassle to wash them and also because they are hard on your natural lashes. In your case I’d skip a day of eye cream and see if that helps.

    What is your fear with the lash lift?  I get my lashes lifted and tinted every 5-6 weeks and it’s the best.

    The only time Ive worn fake lashes were when I was like a teenager going out to the bar and on my wedding day. It’s far far far too much work for me on a regular basis. I’ve had lash lifts and extensions, but I’m a pretty low maintance gal and the continued appointments are tiring. Luckily my natural lashes clean up well if I do need to go out, so I just curl and apply mascara.

    I’ve worn them a few times and got them done at the salon for my wedding. I don’t know what the difference in the glue is, but my eyelids swelled up and I had to tear off the lashes because of the reaction I had. So I had very bald eyelashes at my wedding 😂

    Has anyone tried the magnetic lashes? I’ve been thinking about trying them to see if they’re more comfortable than using glue.

    @botanistbee:  Are you allergic to latex? That’s the primary ingredient in most lash glue.

    I wear them for “dress-up” nights. Birthdays, anniversary, fancy dinners, etc. I do like how fake lashes make me look, but can’t commit financially to having them done regularly.

    I buy the DUO non-latex glue, which was a game changer. I had found the latex one made my eyes redden/itchy by the next day. I also think the brush on tube is way better than the squeeze tube for distributing the glue in a thin but consistent manner.

    None of your poll options represent my situation (that I have never worn them and never will becasue I don’t care for how they look, nor do I ever go to events where the length of my lashes matters). So I voted “They violate my feminist/minimalist principles.” just for funsies. kiss

    I had to wear them for dance competitions as a teen and hated them then, so I’ve never had the desire to wear them as an adult. I can’t stand the look of over the top fake lashes, but I think they can look nice if done well. I just personally don’t want to mess with them.

    @sassy411:  They do a lot for me because I have somewhat hooded eyes and my eyeshadow doesn’t always “pop”.  On the other hand, if the glue is not carefully placed and perfectly dry, my eyelids catch the glue/lashes and I’m miserable all day.  

    If I’m having my makeup done as a bridesmaid or something, I’ll let the pro do it.  Otherwise, no.

    @botanistbee:  I LOVE the magnetic liner ones from Ardell. You just apply the magnetic liner like you would any liquid liner, then the lashes attract to it and they stay pretty darn well. I usually keep a tube of the liner with me for touch ups. I’ve worn them twice, once in Vegas and once at a military ceremony. They were awesome.

    There’s no option for just no.  But for me no.  I do like how they look but I get really watery eyes and they are itchy all the time so I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wear them even if I wanted to.  I like the ones that people have put on that are the individual lash or something.  Those look really nice.

    I love how falsies make my eyes pop but I’m not particularly a huge fan for the simple fact that I’m lazy and don’t want to add to my makeup routine. When I DO wear them for parties or special occasions, I use Lashify. They’re a bit of a PITA, but I feel they look the best on me. 

    I’ve considered getting extensions but I have extremely sensitive skin and with my luck I’d be the one that lost all their natural lashes. I’m not about to take that risk.

    I do professionally applied individuals for special occasions. I think they pop without looking fake.
