My sister suggested I dye my eyelashes and now I'm slightly obsessed. I'm blond and I'm guessing my lashes get a little of the bleaching effect my eyebrows get from my zit cream. (I try to avoid my eyes, but I'm often very sleepy when I finally faces my face before bed.) Anyway, some of my lashes are all but transparent. But I don't wear much makeup. Lately I've been brushing some color into my brows and a bit of the same under my lower lashes. So I can see why she would suggest it.
Of course the first link I googled contained a warning that one should never, never ever dye their lashes because you'll go blind! Nice.
So I thought maybe I should give mascara another try. But I hate clumps. And I always feel my lashes with mascara on. I think it might be what people mean when they say a mascara is heavy. At Walgreens there are so many brands but they all fall into these categories:
Most have some combination of these. I don't think I like thick. I don't even care about length. My lashes aren't long, but I've never thought of them as stumpy either. If I want curl I can use the old fashioned metal curler doohicky. So is there anything out there that just puts a weightless coat of color on the last?
I've looked at a few makeup review sites, but they seem to like what looks clumpy and fake to me. I bought some Mabeline Great Lash because I've heard such good reviews over the years and didn't want to spend money when I really wasn't sure what I wanted. It feels clumpy and heavy and I've played with my lashes since applying it. Maybe the things I hate about mascara are the things that make it mascara.
Still, not really something I'm willing to lose my sight over.
