Lashes in 1, 2, 3… The Story of a Recovering Eyelash Whore!

Hi, my name is Raijean. *Readers repeat after me *Hi Raijean*

I’m a recovering eyelash whore!!

Yes, you read it right… I used to be addicted to lashes, I wouldn’t leave home without them! I’m so serious. Don’t believe me, ask my friends! Want to know how addicted I was? When it was time to go to the hospital to have my son, I made sure I had a fresh pair. The last thing I remember the Doctor saying was “nice lashes”, then I passed out! I had heart surgery twice and you guessed it, each time I had a fresh pair of lashes! I guess I felt like if I had to be in such a crappy place, I might as well look good! Well a few months ago, I checked myself into lash rehab! That’s right, I checked myself into lash rehab. You see, as a beauty/lifestyle/fashion blogger, I get a lot of lash products I couldn’t effectively review because I ALWAYS had on lashes, so I gave them up for a while and haven’t really looked back since.

Until… it was time to put on my Halloween costume. I was getting dressed when I realized  my costume was missing something. I couldn’t quite figure it out. I mean, I had everything I needed but something was off. Then it came to me, I needed lashes to complete my look! That’s when the trouble started, it was late and there was no way in the world I would able to apply my own individual lashes. You see, I’m a lefty and there are just some things I can’t do and applying lashes is one of them. Then I remembered, I had some Kiss Premium Eyelashes with applicator strings that Kiss sent over a while ago. I was in trouble so I prayed to the eyelash gods to help me pull this off before it was time to leave for the nights festivities. Well I’m pleased to say the gods heard my prayer and I had lashes, it took a few tries but momma got them on. I was so proud of myself, I manage to put on my own lashes and not look a foolery… But I’m sorry to say, I may be checking out of lash rehab! You see, I will always love my lashes and wearing them this past weekend made me realize just how much I miss them! While, I won’t wear them everyday, I can’t just quit cold turkey! I guess you can say, I’ve relapsed!

If you are ever in a bind and need lashes quick but trust me this is the product for you! If I can do it anyone can and I mean that!

I promise these red strings saved my life….

Apply the lash glue to the lashes let it sit for about 30 seconds, then apply.  After you get them in place, let the lash glue dry and simply pull the string out!

Easy, right?

After a few trial runs here is the final product!

Before I added eyeliner... Ignore the part where I glued part of my lid...lmao!

 These babies retail for $3.99 a set, so worth the price tag!

In case you were wondering how my Halloween makeup turned out here you go…

Anybody else addicted to lashes like myself?
