If you know me, you know that I LOVE eyelashes!
I have been wearing eyelash extensions for the last couple years now. My eyelashes are stubs and no amount of mascara can fix them. I love my extensions but I really hate the upkeep. I usually go every week to get them filled. It's time consuming and costly! So when my friend messaged me and asked if I wanted to try her new brand, Lithe Lashes, I jumped at the opportunity.
The eyelashes were delivered in small pretty white boxes with hardly any waste! If you have shopped for eyelashes before then you know that most of them come in plastic packaging with all kinds of waste to throw out. What's great about Lithe Lashes is that their case is recyclable and reusable. At the end of the day, I removed my eyelashes and put them back into their case, which took up minimal space.
I was worried as it's been AGES since I put on strip lashes. My time is limited in the morning and fighting with eyelash glue is NOT a part of my routine. Thankfully, Lithe's website provides step by step instructions on how to apply them. Although, I wasn't too optimistic as it seemed way too easy. Anywho, I was surprised that it only took me a couple tries to get it right. As I have been wearing them throughout the week, I've been able to perfect it on one try!
I decided that they look best with a bit of eyeliner. The eyeliner hides the imperfections specifically when you can't get it perfectly in line with your natural lash line. I tried no.01 and no. 03 and I prefer no. 01, which is their signature lash. It's delicate and fine but still enough volume to stand out. I also found they suited my round eyes best. No. 3 is also beautiful with a little more length on the ends to elongate the eye.
Both lashes styles felt light on my lids and looked so natural. Some strip lashes can leave my eyes feeling heavy and I can't wait to rip them off at the end of the night. With Lithe Lashes, I forgot that they were even on, until I removed my makeup in the evening.
Why I also love these lashes is that they are made from high grade synthetics. I had always thought that mink was the better option but according to Peta, even cruelty free mink fur comes from fur farms where the mink are kept in inhumane conditions :(. If you read the article, it's truly horrible. I feel better knowing that I'm not supporting this.
