I am a false eyelash fanatic. Last week, I took a trip to Beverly Center here in sunny Los Angeles for a bit of shopping for my wedding event this past Wednesday. During the 3 hours eye busy stroll, I found MAC Cosmetics — the oasis for all you makeuphiles out there.
They offer limited-edition lines from the likes of Heatherette and Fafi alongside their wardrobe of pro-quality false eyelashes, duo adhesive, and eyeliners. It is your one-stop shop on the way to glam-town. My last wedding attendance was a bit of disappointment as the photos all look like I have no makeup on when I thought I put a lot on. The closed-up pictures are not too bad but the focus of my eyes and makeup tends to tend from just a few feet away.
To be honest, Wednesday was the second time I found myself at MAC. Why is that? Well, I quickly stepped out the first time after seeing the prices of their lashes. I love their 6 Lash that are natural length, dense, full, and slightly wispy looking.
For beauty sake, I picked up a few pairs of MAC lashes. I ended up with 10 pairs. I know, excessive and expansive but I am totally addicted these falsies lashes. They are fab however a bit on the pricey side for most people’s ‘splurging’ budget. I know the price of false eyelashes do vary from place to place, depending on the design, range, and quantity. But MAC lashes are all pricey and the glue is not included. MAC carries DUO adhesive which must be purchased separately.
I personally do not favor DUO adhesive. It does dry clear and has a slightly more pleasant smell than most other lash glue. However,the adhesive is not strong enough for my skin type. I now use DUO Eyelash Adhesive got it from online store and find it a heck better than DUO Adhesive. DUO Eyelash Adhesive is waterproof.
The MAC Cosmetics lady was very knowledgeable and was able to turn my face into one heck of a creation. She also taught me a few false eyelash tricks while she did my makeup nicely. I now know how to make my eyes look really smokey and noticeable from picture afar. I also learned how to put on the falsies quickly and correctly.
After the 10 pairs ran out, I searched the internet and was recommended Andrea Modlash #13 and #26 as alternate to MAC 6 Lash. Now Modlash #13 is my stable wear for all occasions. I get my online at the Madame Madeline website. Their shop sells a lot of false eyelashes products, beauty products, and different eyelash related products. They do give discounts if you buy 2 or more pairs.
I am totally in love with #13 lashes! I can see why so many ladies love the Andrea Brand. Though I love my #13 lashes, I still find myself buying MAC 6 Lash as a treat for myself from time to time.
