What are eyeliners and mascaras? Eyeliners are products formulated to help define your eyes by adding a contour shadow around your eyes to create an illusion of fuller, longer lashes. It is designed to make your eyelashes appear as though they are longer than they really are for up to 6 or 8 hours a day – or even more.
No. Mascaras do not help you grow longer, fuller lashes. As I explained above, they are designed to give you the temporary effect after which they will disappear, and your thin, sparse lashes will reveal again. No matter how long you apply your mascara, it will never enhance your lash condition on a permanent basis.
That’s a good question. There are different methods you can employ to improve your lash condition. Some offer a temporary improvement to your lashes for three months – which isn’t long. Others enhance your natural lashes for life while shielding them from hair destroying hormones and the harsh environmental condition. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes the temporary lift they deserve. Lash extensions are attached to your individual lashes with the aid of a strong adhesive. The price of a quality extension set may range from $300 to $500. You may need to touch up every 2 weeks before replacing the whole extension after 2 months or at most 3 months.
Eyelash extensions, no doubt, make you beautiful by shaping your eyes properly. They are cheaper to the surgical procedure. But, like the false lashes (which are now common), they can remove anytime. Well, that’s why you need touch-ups.
Prolonged usage of lash extensions can do more harm than good. Firstly the strong adhesive you use in fixing them may dry out your natural lashes, making them break and fall out. Secondly, replacing, touchups, and attaching new lashes may uproot your lashes from the root, leading to short, sparse lashes. Lastly, they harbor bacteria and other microorganisms that are dangerous to the health of your eyes.
Lash follicles from the back of your neck and transplanted to your lash line. It cost about $3000 to $5000 to fix an eye – that’s’ $6000 to $10000 for both eye. This method is great. But are the risk really worth it?
You face the knife and have to deal with the pain for 2 to 3 weeks. Also, the price is ridiculously high. Well, if you have that budget, you might want to consider it as it brings about a long-lasting results to your sparse, thin lashes.
If you want the effect of a permanent lash extension without the ridiculous cost and the post-surgery pain, then an eyelash serum is your best bet. Formulated with plant extracts, humectants, antioxidants, and powerful bioactive polypeptides, lash serums are invented to nourish your lashes from the outside while moisturizing your lash line and shielding all your lash hair from drying and breaking.
It takes up to a month or two to see results. So patience is key. Another thing is, you have to be careful with the brand you choose. We have tons of serum for eyelashes that contain dangerous ingredients like silicon, paraben, gluten, prostaglandin, artificial color and fragrance and more. So research on the brand before using it around your eyes.
