For some reason, I became obsessed with lashes, lashes, lashes this week.

First, I started using Le Metier de Beaute’s Peau Vierge Lash Growth Serum ($95).  When Latisse was first approved for lash growth, I used it for about four months before I became hesitant after the FDA increased the warning.  Although my lashes got incredibly long using Latisse, the effect lasts only a few months.

I purchased Le Metier’s Peau Veirge Lash Growth Serum last December, and have only started using it now.  I’ll see how it goes and report back.

Second, I’ve been seeing some favorable reports for Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara on makeup boards and at Lipglossiping.  I tried to order a tube, but just got a back-order notice until mid-August.  I’m shaking my fist at Benefit–don’t they realize that in the beauty blogging world, August is practically Christmas?

Instead, I’m investigating Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill reviewed by The Beauty Look Book.

Third,  I’ve become very curious about false lashes.  They always seemed unwieldy to me, but Lisa Eldridge has done some tutorials (here and here) that make me imagine that I could do it.  Have you used them?

Also, I fell in love with these pictures of a Shu Uemura collection from the Makeup Blogette.  So pretty!
