Hey lovelies! Today I’m sharing one of my new favorite summer makeup must-haves with all of you. Read on to find out how you can get full lashes for the summer without wearing falsies!When I was in high school, I had to wear false eyelashes regularly for dance competitions and they were probably my least favorite thing about competition days. I could never wait to pull the furry lashes off of my eyelids at the end of the day and it would be such an incredibly weird sensation every time I accidentally brushed them with my hand. It was always a very odd feeling putting them on in the morning and I’d feel like I was wearing caterpillars on my eyes until I got used to them or forgot I was wearing them. False lashes are one of the very few things that I really don’t miss about dance.
That being said, when Physicians Formula asked me to try out their new mascara/extension kit that creates a more natural version of false lashes, without any glue or hassle, I knew that I had to try it for myself!
I’ve gotta admit, the first time I tried their Eye Booster & Lash Extension Kit I wasn’t sold. I noticed a slight change, but not quite as much change as I expected. However, I tried it out again yesterday and WOW. I think the first time I tried the kit it didn’t work as well because I put the base coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes of each eye before starting to apply the extensions which meant the mascara was already semi dry. The next time I tried it out, I put the mascara on the top lashes of one eye, added the extensions, and sealed it with another coat of mascara before going on the the bottom of the same eye or starting with the next eye. It worked so well and I saw a major difference which was much more like what I’d expected after seeing the packaging and all that the product had promised. It also stayed on the whole day without smudging or budging at all, one of my makeup pet peeves, so I’m sold!I was worried at first about wearing contacts or some of the extensions falling into my eye and irritating it because I have insanely sensitive eyes. Ola has witnessed a teary-eyed Megan on so many photo shoots due to my eyes’ sensitivity to sun, wind, etc. so it made sense that I was worried about the mascara and extensions. However, being familiar with the brand (I love their color-correcting concealer), I should’ve known it would be fine! Physicians Formula is known for making organic and natural makeup that is 100% free from any known irritants, so it’s perfect for someone with sensitive eyes and skin, like me!
Physicians Formula’s Eye Booster & Lash Extension Kit is definitely one of my new favorite summer essentials for any time I want my eyes to have some extra oomph! I’ll definitely be picking up another kit at Walmart after this one runs out! Do you think you’ll try this new way to get fuller lashes without falsies for summer?
