Have you tried them yet? I wear false eyelashes 6 days a week 7 if I'm going out on a Sunday and I bought a pair of NYC cheepies from Bodycare a week ago for the exact same reason. I've found them ok but only after three or so uses as they've softened. I usually pay £5-6 a pair but noticed TK maxx sell theirs at £2.99 discounted, so I'll be shopping there when my current collection has diminished.

Just some Simple facial wipes and a couple of Topshop lipsticks. They smell gorgeous and stay on for ages.

A new tube of Frédéric Fekkai Glossing Cream for my hair. It's expensive, but my previous tube lasted me more than a year!

Not tried them yet. Do you add any mascara on after you've put your lashes on? I'm pretty new to wearing them so have read those that say to and those that say not. If I've added mascara I am only getting 2 wears out of them.

Oh add to the purchase list I got my Hair rehab extensions (posted in a separate thread)

I curl my eyelashes and add mascara before I put my lashes on. I've found the cheaper ones easier to clean and after five uses they still look pretty new, whereas my usual lashes start looking a little rough (though I often find although they look terrible in the tray they look fabulous on). I prefer the look of the more expensive ones but I find it's trial and error finding the ones you like the most, so I'd be willing to try cheap ones again bit will always check out tk maxx first.

If my lashes are gunked up then I find soaking them in some warm water with a drop of shampoo then very gently brushing them out helps. YouTube is fantastic, if you do a few searches on cleaning and maintaing false lashes you get load of tips. I can spen hours watching beauty tutorials on there :D

ruthiebabie 17-02-2011 10:41

I like the Cassie Lomas tutorials on you tube. I'm now off to try cleaning my lashes!

Lushness 19-02-2011 11:46

Just bought an Alpha-H introductory kit. I've wanted to try this for a while, the Liquid Gold sounds really good!

clarribo 19-02-2011 16:48

Boring- some nail polish remover and cotton wool pads from Wilko's
Less Boring- Nail polish from Asda

Bibidybobidyboo 19-02-2011 16:57

Thursday I bought, some heat protection spray and Friday I bought some batiste dry shampoo, a Barbara Daily eye primer and a home highlighting kit, with which I've given myself a few peek a boo highlights around my fringe.

CoCoKathy 19-02-2011 17:18

Benetint and High Beam- both from Benefit, I absolutely adore them both!
