Lash Crazy

I go through phases in my makeup routine as to what products I’m obsessed with.  One month I can’t get enough of super shiny lip glosses, another I want to try out every new BB Cream on the market, or I’m into rainbow colored shadows because I’m bored with safe neutrals.
Currently, my obsession lies in false lashes…

This was the scene when I opened one of my makeup drawers yesterday.  I was honestly kind of shocked at how my lash collection has grown.  It looks like a drag queen lives in my house.  And this is my personal stash, which doesn’t even touch the surface of the fringes I have in my makeup artist kit!!  Ever since I got my lash extensions put in here, (and here + here), then professionally removed, my lashes have been a bit thinner and straight.  Hence why I have wanted to fake a thicker lash line with falsies until they grow back to normal.

My favorite false lashes at the moment are :  
Ardell Fashion Lashes “Wispies”  |  MAC Cosmetics #33 Lashes |  
You can see how the Ardell strips look on me here, and the MAC ones look here.  I’ve gone a bit lash crazy.  And despite how ridiculous and time consuming it seems for a mother of 3 to apply false lashes a few times a week, it makes me happy and gives my eyes that extra boost you just simply cannot get from mascara.  Just for fun, I came across these lashes that mimic the London Skyline, seriously.  Too crazy not to share.

Speaking of crazy, has anyone tried the mascara wands with the sphere shaped head?  I gotta admit, I can’t figure out how to work these things.  I’ve held that wand every which way, even upside down, to see how to get the best application.  It’s too much work and I don’t see the benefit.  If you’re a fan of the sphere, please let me know what I’m doing wrong, because it’s making me crazy I can’t figure it out.

Have you found a mascara that gives you that false eye lash look?  Please let me know in the comments below.  Please.  Because I’ve yet to come across one, and I can’t keep applying false lashes every day, it’s borderline ridiculous.  Even the Too Faced “Better Than False Lashes” mascara system didn’t even cut it.
