Long before Latisse or any of the other eyelash lengthening potions were developed, Elizabeth Taylor rocked extra-long, extra-thick lashes.

Kiss Premium Eyelashes Are Easy-To-Apply Falsies

I'm slightly obsessed with having long, luxurious eyelashes. Tell me a beauty treatment will give the appearance of curled and thick lashes, and I'll say, "When's my appointment?"

A Perm … For Your Eyelashes?

The last time we saw a perm and liked it was in 7th grade when Jennifer Guglio's mom let her get one and she accessorized it with colorful baby barrettes and Hello Kitty hair ties. That. Was. So.

I Spent $700 On Eyelash Extensions

First there was the initial application. That cost $400. Then the touch-ups every three weeks at $100 each. Yes, I'm aware it sounds like a coke addict's tally after a heavy binge. But I'm talking about eyelash extensions. I blew $700 on my eyelashes in two months. I know, it sounds crazy, but those two…

Paperself Fake Eyelashes Are Eyesome

Fake eyelashes are generally a problematic beauty product. They're either too costumey and should be reserved for Halloween and theme parties or they're a nice idea in principle but never work in reality. When we first saw these fake eyelashes by Paperself, we thought "crazy!" To be more accurate, they're not lashes, bur rather…
