The best selling product at the beauty counters? Mascara. Because full, voluminous lashes are feminine en seductive. But there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to enhancing your lashes. Beat Bambi!
It takes some real dedication, but Revitlash promises to give you butterfly lashes in just a month by making the hair follicle stronger. This way lashes can grow thicker and longer. It’s advised to apply the serum faithfully to the lash line every night for the best results. The mysterious lash-enhancing ingredient is a cosmetic version of prostaglandin. This is a substitute for the one in medical eye drops, with a interesting side effect: longer lashes! I’ve seen the effect on a few of my girlfriends, and honestly it almost looks like they are using false lashes!

2. Mascara which stimulates lash growth
It’s being claimed in every mascara ad; ‘Lashes will appear longer!’ Often because of the use of tiny fibers that stick to the lashes. But what if mascara would actually make the lashes grow, so the effect is still there after washing your face? For this purpose Sisley created the So Intense Mascara with Biotin (vitamin B5), which stimulates hair growth in just a month.

3. Conditioning oil
Castor oil works as a conditioner for the hairs. By spreading this carefully all over the lashes every single night, it should make them stronger so they continue to grow longer.

4. Baby powder
A budget beauty trick. By using a q-tip for applying it on the lashes before using mascara, an extra ’level’ on top of them is created, so they will appear longer temporarily.

Lash extensions are hot right now. Luckily mink lashes are not popular anymore. Good quality synthetic ones are almost identical to real lashed these days. After putting the tiny hairs one on one on the real lashes, they will stay in place for about two months, but a refill after 3 weeks is a must. But be careful not to use face wash around the eye area, as this can dissolve the glue!
Pices may vary between $20 - $60.
