This is Casey…
The Drag Queen that I met at the beauty store totally converted me to Ardell Magnetic Lashes. Without trying them on (pretty sure you can’t do that anyway), I bought two boxes and was ready to divorce the falsies and eyelash glue that I have been married to for years.
Like any good Catholic I will confess that it is ALL my fault that the Ardell Magnetic Lashes were a total fail for me. As I mentioned before, I have been wearing falsies for years. This means, I have also been ripping falsies, glue and my own eyelashes off every night for a really long time. Bottom line… I have no eyelashes of my own left. First world problems, I know.
I think that the magnetic lashes are supposed to hug your natural lash, and stay on that way. This is a tad difficult when you have no lashes left.
So, after two weeks of trying to attach the magnetic lashes onto my nonexistent lashes, I threw in the towel. I returned the Ardell Magnetic Lashes to the beauty store, for a full refund.
I thought about going back to my wonderful false eyelashes, but what I want is a quicker, easier morning routine. And, in all honesty, I want my own eyelashes to grow back. A bald eyelash line is not cute on anyone. Instead, I decided to contact the Rodan and Fields consultant that I work with and order the Lash Boost that they sell. I am such a sucker. But, I am counting down the days until my Lash Boost serum arrives, and I can start “conditioning” my natural eyelashes into long, Bambi-like lashes. Until then, I am layering on the black eyeliner. The smokey-eye is making a comeback, right?
