i hate eyelash extensions

2012 January 10, Tuesday

My friends and clients all know that I hate permanent lash extensions.  Especially those that are so dense and long they remind me of sun visors.  Sometimes they even make eyes look sleepy ala Garfield. Just making eyes look darker and looking like they’re shading the eyes from the sun but not doing anything to make eyes look brighter and prettier.

When I makeup my subjects, I’d use false lashes to make eyes pop if I have to and I’ll pick the type that suits them and the look I’m creating. But when the look doesn’t call for falsies, I’ll need a good mascara. One that volumizes, lengthens and keeps curl well.

We all know that there are many good ones out there.  Well, lemme introduce the latest good one that has just been launched recently.  From Maybelline New York, the brand that has produced sooo many famous and very sought-after mascaras at affordable prices, comes The Falsies Volum’ Express mascara, waterproof formula.  (waterproof mascara is another thing I like, especially in humid climates like here cuz the humidity straightens curled lashes sooner than you’d like.  Tip: waterproof mascara keeps lashes curled for a much much longer time than regular ones.)

So if you haven’t tried it, go for it!


Maybelline New York has in stores now their latest introduction to their impressive line-up of mascaras.

Pulse Perfection is the first vibrating mascara for the mass market.  For half or less than of the price of its predecessors but not compromising in performance.  Just SGD29.90  and it is limited to only 30,000 pieces in Singapore.

With a speed of 7,000 per minute vibrations together with emollient waxes and oils that provides a smooth even texture that tames and volumizes lashes with an even 360˚ coating.  It also helps to push up the lashes, giving them a nice soft curve.  But of course, I’d suggest using an eyelash curler to give you even more lift!

A little tip.  If you like the brush and the good it does for your lashes you can keep the it even if the mascara has run out and use it with your other mascaras.  You can simply replace the battery which is located at the top of the cap.  😉
