Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to try out LashDip, a pharmaceutical-grade, gel eyelash coating. I was counting the hours-I’ve been an eyelash extensions fan for a while now, but as I’m a natural blonde, I often get this zebra-like effect as the lashes shed.
But this is a whole other experience: a special gel is put on the eyelashes, which are then manipulated and designed in any way you desire-one dip equals dark, painted lashes that last up to six weeks. I opted to add extensions, too, pre-dip, and the results were stunning.
But if you already have super-long lashes (can they ever be TOO long?) or aren’t a fan of the adhesives used in extensions, the dip itself may be a great option for you. It’s blacker than your best mascara, and the dip alone increases the volume and length of natural lashes, and even makes them lift and curve. Plus, no worries of smudging or raccoon eyes-the results last for about a month, maybe longer, while providing lift, curve and separation.
You may be familiar with LashDip already – it was featured on the Today Show’s “Beauty Breakthroughs of 2011,” and since then has been taking the world by storm. For my own experience, I was lucky enough to have them administered by Jessica Harley and Gina Mondragon themselves – who just happen to be the founders of Lash Dip.
We’re about a week in, and I haven’t seen any shedding yet. Jessica tells me they should last beautifully for a good month to come. I’m excited. I feel like Jessica Rabbit in these lashes!
