Oh, lawd, when I see super dramatic lashes now at Ulta or Sephora I always think, “Those would make me look completely insane.”
Mind you, I’ve rocked big, real-deal false lashes many times before, and they’re fun, and some are more comfortable than others are, but at this stage in my life, after having not worn falsies very often for months, I feel like the big, flashy falsies make me look nuts, and that’s where these Ardell Baby Demi Wispies come in.
Girl, these are SO GOOD! And they’re only $5.
They’re like Ardell’s more famous and fabulous Demi Wispies (OH! I used to wear those all the time.) and have a similar shape, where the lashes are longer and flare out on the side corners, but the Baby Wispies have markedly shorter lashes overall.
They marvelously merge with my real lashes when I wear them and look darned near natural. I’ve seen people pause when they see my eyes, like they’re wondering, “Hmm… Is she wearing false lashes?” And I’d rather keep people wondering. 🙂 It’s funner than when they can tell right off the bat.
I wore a pair for the first time last week with the Urban Decay Afterdark Palette, and they were just the right amount of lash for that look.
Next time I find them on sale, you better believe #makeuphoarder mode will kick in. 🙂
Normally priced, though, they’re still a good deal. I know they’re available at Sally Beauty Supply for about $5 each.
