I applied my Ardell 305 Lashes, thank you Kate Baldwin, used my Duo Individual Lash Adhesive figuring it was fine and went to the party. One am rolled around and we got home and I went to wash my face. "Hmmm....this glue is serious. These lashes feel really solid" I thought as I tried to peel them off my eyes. They wouldn't budge. After MUCH perusal online I realized that the lash glue I had used was for 2-4 week lash wear - what?!!! I had a mild panic attack when I realized these were not going to be slipping off easily. I also finally found info on how to get it off - um, you can't really but if you want to try "try a q-tip with some mineral oil". Well, have we met? I don't use mineral oil because it is a major petrochemical and hardcore badie. So I cracked out my coconut and olive oils, mixed them together and felt certain they would work to dissolve the cement that was on my eyelids. Nope. It was about 2:30 in the morning at this point and was ready to put motor oil on my eyes if it might work. I asked Daniel, champ that he is, to go to the drugstore and get me, HORRORS!, some baby oil (which is made of mineral oil) so we could get this show wrapped up.
|My eyelash is holding on for dear life - it had really bonded with me :)|
|Carnage from the night - and yes, those are MY lashes in the front bowl of mineral oil. So sad.|
