Lashes, Lashes everywhere…

Ladies, even without make-up, if your lashes are long and luscious and you apply a little lip gloss you’re good to go for the day! This year, lashes are all the rage. There are all kinds of lash enhancers worth exploring. First and foremost, there is Latisse. Latisse is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment used to grow your own inadequate or not long enough eyelashes making them Longer, Thicker, Darker with major difference usually seen in only 8 weeks. REMEMBER it is important to come in and see Dr. Resnik to discuss this incredible advance in lash technology BEFORE you purchase and or start using Latisse.

If Latisse is not your cup of tea, there is always the option of false lashes. However you should know that all Lashes are NOT created equal. Sure you can pick up lashes for $1 or lashes for $25 or higher, depending on the quality. So many people are unaware that quality is essential to the look and longevity of false eyelashes. Also, there is a difference in price between purchasing human and synthetic lashes. (Tip #1: Human Hair lashes always look and move more natural and the band is thinner for better flexibility than synthetic.) (Tip #2: I have found that MAC and Shu Uemura lashes are amongst the most expensive.) There are excellent human and synthetic lashes on the market; there is something for everyone.

If you have no time to fuss with full strip lashes never fear. There are lash technicians who can apply individual lashes. These lashes are superbly designed for perfect separation and hair placement; allow about 2 hours to place a full set. “Individuals” are like real lashes; they are fine and naturally soft and did I mention Semi-permanent? The cost can run around $300 for a full set. The benefits to semi-perm individuals are that they can last up to 3 months, when touched up and cared for about every 2 -3 weeks. Lashes are longer and thicker, water-proof and weather-proof. (Tip #1: Water proof but not shower-proof; I suggest eye goggles in the shower…no lie!)

Last but not least: MASCARA. I am always on the look-out for new and amazing mascaras. I personally have thin, short lashes, and therefore volume and length is a priority for me.
The beauty editors at BeautyStat.Com compiled a list of the top 5 best rated mascaras I will list them for the purposes of this blog but suggest you look at the rest of their honorable mentions. #1: DiorShow by Dior $25.00. #2: Big Fatty by Urban Decay $20.00. #3: Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes $19.00. #4: L’oreal False Fiber Lashes $8.99. #5: Lancome Oscillation $35.00.
There is one NEW “Mystery” Mascara which I have searched for everywhere. The SCOOP in the Beauty World is that this brand “Ethylline WhipLash Lash Detonator Thicksplosion.” Is the most AMAZING mascara on the market, It finds lashes you didn’t even know you had… Your lashes apparently “explode” like fireworks!

Try finding it, though…I have searched High and Low and asked all of my make-up artist friends and yet NOTHING.
There is a Facebook page, but no real information on it.
There are numerous “blogs” about the product but they all sound exactly the same as if written by the same person.
There’s no website, not even an image on GOOGLE! Arghh! If anyone sees it, or has the 411 on this Super Duper Mascara, please let me know I WANT IT!!!!!!!!

Until Next Time,
Lina, your Beauty & Skin Care Guru
