Eylure Pre-Glued Wispy Light No. 117 Lashes Review

 Affiliate Link





I've talked about how much I liked the Amazon magnetic lashes in a previous post, but I dropped by Target today and just had to try the Eylure Pre-Glued Wispy Light Lashes.  I really hate applying glue to my lashes because it tends to pull out my natural lashes.  That said, I'd like to stick to magnetic lashes as much as possible.  However, I was drawn to this one because the packaging says it is a 15-hour wear but takes only 15 seconds to apply.  I was sucked into buying because of the promise that it will only take so little time to apply, and will work especially well for hectic mornings.  Well, that proved to be - quite true.

It was so easy to apply; it's even easier to stick on than magnetic lashes, just because there is no separate application of either magnetic liner or glue, no waiting for the glue or liner to dry.  However, there is a downside - the pre-glued application only works once.  If you want to use the lashes again, you'll probably have to apply glue to your lashes because it won't stick anymore.  My falsies started to become unglued on the 4th or 5th hour of wear.

It is a beautiful, wispy pair of lashes though.  It feels light and airy, and very comfortable to wear.  It is a bit expensive for around $5 a pop, but you can wear this more than once, so cost per wear goes down considerably.

Summer and Fall Staple: Amazon Sleeveless Layering Top Review




We just hit a milestone this summer. Phoenix set the record for the hottest month ever recorded, according to the National Weather Service. August 2020 was the hottest month on record in Phoenix since tracking began in 1896. We've experienced at least 52 (and counting) days of temperatures 110 degrees or higher. Wow.  I can't believe I've been running with my dog every night in 106 degree heat. I think what makes it a wee bit bearable is that (okay, everybody now) it's a dry heat. That is why these tops from Amazon have become my staple every day (and when I say every day, I mean every single day) top this summer. The Lark and Ro Sleeveless Layering Tank is really comfy and cool during these sweltering hot days. They are also professional enough for meetings at the office, and they make great shells for blazers and jackets. I have about 10 of these in different colors. They also run a bit big, so if you want a more snug fit, I suggest that you size down. The Lark and Ro Sleeveless Layering Tank retails for $19 and comes in either crew or V-neck.
