So, remember my eyelash post a long while ago? The general consensus from the comments (thanks everyone!) was to go for the faux lashes. While I really liked how they made my lashes extra long and flirty, I did notice that the density of lashes at the band really changed the whole look of my eyes in general… and not in a way that I necessarily wanted. Even more of a deterrent in the case for the falsies was Mr. Plumeria’s immediate reaction: “Ew. You look so much better without them. You look like a doll in those pictures.” *sees my face sort of fall* “Well, I mean, it’s really up to you and what you feel would look best. Do whatever you want.” Then, inserted hastily: “But, ew!”
I had a sinking feeling right away that they were not going to work, no matter how dramatic they might look, because I do NOT want to walk down that aisle to him with him thinking that I look like plastic. In the end, I don’t mind so much because I’m not quite expert at applying them anyway… and I can always save them for a night out sometime.
So I embarked on a journey to find the perfect mascara to give me some length, but without the unnatural look of the false lashes. The main requirements? Absolutely smudge-proof, even through potential tears, and absolutely clump-free as well: the two reasons I had liked the false lashes. If I could find a miracle mascara that could do both of these, then there would be no reason to wear fakes.
