You know I love my false lashes as much as the next girl, but the mess of glue and risk of pulling out the precious few lashes means I do have keep my use to a minimum. I have tried every mascara every conceived, as well as bases and primers, but none as dramatic as the Better Than False Lashes extension system from Too Faced.
The three-step “system” comes with an activating mascara base that also serves as a topcoat. When you apply the base, it builds a foundation so the Flexistretch nylon fibers can reach maximum volume. Then you use the mascara to build crazy long lashes, and the base / top coat again to seal it all in.
Yes, this routine does take a bit longer (for me, it actually takes longer than putting on false lashes), but you do get amazingly long and full lashes. That’s not to say they look like falsies – which is good and bad. It just looks like you have a lot of mascara on, since you’re not dealing with individual lashes like you are with fakes.
If you take your time and do a little at a time, you’ll minimize the clumping and get fabulous lengths. As far as mascara goes, this works wonders! Just don’t throw your faithful falsies away just yet – you will still want those for special occasions. At Sephora for $35.
