I’m not the most girlie girl in the world, but I love makeup and cosmetics. Give me eyeshadows, nail polish, perfumes, and other cosmetics and I‘m a happy camper. My favorite time of year is Christmas, as that’s when the department stores roll out the huge collections of makeup. Recently, I’ve been trying to branch out from my comfort zone.
When I was first approached about trying out Winks by Georgie eyelashes , I was a little apprehensive. I thought about it for a couple days before agreeing to do it. What if they’re hard to apply? What if I can’t figure it out? What if I glue my eye shut? Then I’ll have to go to the emergency room, where I’m bound to run into someone I know. Everyone will laugh at me, and they’ll be like “Yeah, that’s the girl that glued her eye shut.” And then everyone in town will know I glued my eye shut trying to apply false eyelashes.
Alright, I’ll try ‘em! I was expecting something like the old caterpillar falsies to arrive. Instead, I got these. Uhhh…what am I gonna do with those? I have to admit, I thought they were individual eyelashes and I was in full-blown panic mode. How do I do this? What am I going to do? It wasn’t until I actually removed the eyelashes from the compact that I realized they’re in a strip.
For real? I was totally panicked over nothing! I got the instructions out and started reading, because that’s the kind of person I am. It was here that I discovered that I apply the Winks after my makeup is done! That was good to know, as I would have applied them, then added mascara on top. All I had to do is measure the Winks against my eyes to see if they needed to be trimmed. Nope, we’re good. I applied a thin coat of glue, which was really easy to do with the tube that’s included. I let it get tacky, and applied the Winks eyelashes along my lash line.
I got it a bit higher than I was anticipating, but I just applied a little more eyeliner. Heh. No one will ever know. The second eye was a little more daunting. I’m not sure if it was because it’s my left eye and I’m right handed or what, But I had some trouble getting the Winks strip along the lash line. I had to remove them and the adhesive, which was really easy, and try again. On the third or fourth try, I finally got it!
More great features of Winks are that they're dermatologist tested, fragrance free, long-wearing, They're also natural and organic, vegan, paraben free, petrochemical free, and there's no Animal Testing.
So here it is, nearly 3 hours later. I’m still wearing the Winks by Georgie eyelashes. They’re basically weightless and I forget I have them on. They don’t look ridiculous and I think you could easily wear them in your day to day life. I’ll probably save them for dinners out or special occasions.
