Trendy Tuesday - Lash Injection

Have you seen this new mascara by Too Faced?
It's called Lash Injection and its like getting eye lash extensions without the actual extensions or the price.

Apparently it builds a "tube" around each lash, giving it a 3D look and extension off the tips. It even gives it a bit of a curl. For $20 it can be yours! And I must say, if it actually gives the same apperance as the real deal lash extensions, $20 isn't too bad.

But you should know...as most people don't read the "Precautions" on the product, this is what it says on Sephora's website:
-When removing this product, do not rub aggressively back and forth.
-Lash Injection does not dissolve into a gooey mess, but instead, slides off each lash like little lash "socks".
-Use a downward wiping motion to remove the 3-D polymers, in order to preserve healthy lashes.
Eyelash socks? Hmmm...don't know about this. I'm on the fence. What do you think?

I haven't used this brand but I have used another mascara that does a similar thing. It was very wierd! When it comes off, it comes off in little tubes. It freaked me out! I use Dior Blackout mascara and I LOVE it! I think it is only sold at Sephora.

Hmmm..."polymer" sounds a lot like "plastic" and less like "cosmetic chemical", so that's probably why it works, how it works, and why it comes off in...socks?
I'm SUCH a sucker for new mascara marketing, I haven't tried this, but if it looks like fake lashes, I may have to try.
After we fill the car up with gas. Cause, you know...that's a whole five gallons!

Socks on my eyelashes??!! interesting concept. And 20 bucks for mascara..I'll just stick to my $4.99 cover girl. :)

Sara said...

well, i LOVE sephora, and even more so too faced, but eyelash socks??? thats a bit freaky if you ask me...i think that if i really need longer eyelashes, i'll still with the fake stick-on kind! thanks for an interesting and funny post :)

Do you think it really works?

I would pay that for it. YES!! Does Sephora have it? I swear, Sephora has everything.

Thanks for checking in on me last week for my special SITS day. I saw that you work at a seminary. If it's mine I'm going to need you to do some grade changing for me. (Southwestern AG in Dallas, TX)
