beauty + an ode to false lashes

Let’s talk falsies.

The lash kind.

Last Friday, I was bored, and when I’m bored, I usually end up spending money on something dumb, and definitely something I don’t need.

Like false eyelashes!

Just the strip kind. Though I do have my eye on lash extensions (hit a girl up if you have any opinions/fave places to get them done, slash if you have a hookup cause #broke). I'm very into lashes. I tint my lashes every six weeks, use growth serum at night, and mascara is 100% the beauty product I'd bring with me on a desert island. I'm very proud of my lashes.

But sometimes, you just gotta try something new.

If you go to Sephora and buy a pair of false lashes, they can put them on for you for free! Well, technically free, it’s a complimentary service with purchase, but still!

I’m pretty proficient in applying individual lashes, but I’ve never tried the full strip kind. I also had a stroke of inspiration when I wasn’t at home, so getting them done by a professional was the right move at the time.
I went straight for the inexpensive lash row at Sephora, and after minuts of deliberating, I finally chose the Quill Luxe False Lashes. They were big, but not too big, fluffy and voluminous, and probably the most natural while still making an impact.

Basically, these lashes are a gamechanger. 

I intend to try out a bunch of these different Luxe False lashes, since I've noticed they have a larger variety on the website than in the Greenwich store, but I'm a huge fan of the Quill's. They're reusable, too, which makes it so much more worth it. 

The Sephora cosmetician was the best. So friendly, complimentary (I don't care if they're being fake, I like compliments), and made sure my lashes looked perfect before I left.

I've already worn the lashes twice since I've bought them (I have them on right now), and I can definitely tell I'll be experimenting a lot more with falsies in the future. One of the best things about them is that it's not completely necessary to do a whole eyeshadow/liner look when I have them on. Obviously I still put on a stupid amount of eyeliner when I'm going out on the weekends, but for work, I can just pop them on and I'm good to go.

What do y'all think about false lashes?

  1. I LOVE wearing falsies and I agree that the lashes+no liner look is so chic. But I'm so bad at applying them :( It takes so much time so I rarely use them during my morning routine. Maybe I'll attempt wearing them more often now! - MHK
