A Peptide-Enriched Mascara That Helps Your Lash Extensions Last Longer
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
If you've become a slave to lash extensions—we totally understand why as their volumizing and lengthening benefits are like no other—than you’ll want to listen up. Rumor has it there’s a peptide-enhanced mascara that can do wonders for lash extensions and make them last longer than normal.
We all know that one of the downsides to wearing lash extensions is the constant upkeep that comes along with them. About every three weeks you’re back at the salon getting them filled because the extensions fall out over time.

But, according to neuENVY, the creators of the Peptide Enhanced Mascara ($32), applying this buildable formula on top of your extensions can actually help to strengthen, condition and hydrate your natural lashes. In a nutshell, it means while you’re sporting extensions, you can also grow longer and stronger lashes underneath. “There’s a synergistic blend of peptides, antioxidants, vitamin E and provitamin B5 that nourishes each lash, creating flexibility and protection against free radicals,” says Marisa Leroy, Skin Research Labs brand manager. “These ingredients work in tandem with a combination of amino acids to help improve natural lash texture. Using the mascara increases the life and wear of extensions because your own lashes are protected at the base, providing a strong foundation to support the extensions.”
One of the benefits to wearing lash extensions is that you get to skip mascara (although some opt to layer it on). With this, not only are you getting the darkening and defining effect that mascara offers, but you’re also actually prolonging the life of your extensions because each lash is conditioned and protected more than if you used nothing at all.
