For those of us not lucky enough to have a personal makeup team behind us Katy Perry is endorsing Color Pop lashes by Eylure. I have done individual lashes in the salon before, though I don’t like to wear them continuously. Read about that drama here. I’d rather get some at the drugstore and apply them at home just for a night out.
The Color Pop lashes are in strip form for one long band, or in individuals to be applied separately. I tried the strip and although pretty and thick, they were just too heavy to stay on my eyes! I’m not a lash application expert, but I usually have success with my drug store strips. I retired them.
For vacation however, I decided to bring my individuals to the salon. I let the lady apply the regular short black lash and then a few purple and green toward the outer edge of the eye. It wasn’t too flashy, just barely noticeable when done this way. When I grew tired of the splash of color, I used plain black mascara over them and concealed the color! Genius!
I have never tried to apply my own individual lashes, I don’t think I plan to. It’s easy to just go let someone who can have both their eyes open apply them while I relax.
Maybe if I’m feeling bold this summer I will use entirely colored lashes…we will have to see!
