Growing up, my mama always told me to embrace my natural features and never be envious of anyone or anything. While I’m already on my way to being okay with my petite frame and lack of defined collarbones, I’ve continually failed at one thing - I can’t stop obsessing over Jessica Rabbit and Betty Boop’s fluttery eyelashes. As fate had to have it, even my little brother has better lashes than I do. Goes to prove why I hoard my falsies better than my 4 a.m. friends. Erm, last I heard you fake it till you make it, right? Right.
To think of it, false lashes can be extremely daunting. If I had a penny for every time someone asked me, “What if they fall off?” or “Irritate your eyes?”, I’d be richer than Kylie Jenner. Truth is, you can spoil yourself to a fluttery pair of falsies once in a while. Take it from an avid fan. If you can’t stop doubting me, Nykaa’s all-new, all-encompassing Lash Talk collection comes to the rescue just in time. It packs in three sets: Natural, Length and Volume. Still not convinced? For every problem, this collection offers a solution. That’s how versatile it can get.
So, keep scrolling, for some serious Lash Talk.
PROBLEM #1 - FALSIES ARE TOO DRAMATIC
Most days, I prefer thickening my lashes with double coats of pitch-black mascara. But for special occasions, falsies are the real deal. As someone who loves keeping her look natural, I’d rather go for lashes that look like mine, only better. And if you do the same, you’re going to adore this collection. It's got three options that look perfectly natural, but in varying lengths. My numero uno for this purpose is the Real Deal false lash, which adds just the right amount of length and volume.
PROBLEM #2 - THEY DON’T LAST LONG
Sisters, I’d hate to break it to you, but nothing lasts forever. But with proper love and care, you most definitely can make it last a little close to forever. Nykaa’s range of lashes does exactly this. They are sturdy enough to last you the entire festive and wedding season. In fact, OTT Drama from the collection isn’t just long wear, you can even reuse it a multiple time before you chuck it. And no, wiping it clean with heavy-duty makeup remover won’t thin out your strands before you decide to toss it out.
PROBLEM #3 - THEY IRRITATE THE EYES
Ugh, this is a common problem, one that keeps you away from falsies. Nothing these bad boys can’t solve. Despite being thick and intense, you don’t feel a thing after sticking on Melodrama or even Just Enough Drama. They’re light as a feather, don’t make an audacious statement. Want in on a trick? Trim out the band or length of lashes to stay comfortable all-day long. Customising them according to the shape of your eyes can make a big difference. So come on, chop chop!
PROBLEM #4 - FINDING THE RIGHT ONE IS TOUGH
No ladies, finding the right man is tough. But finding the right falsies is literally a cakewalk. Especially with the launch of the Lash Talk Collection. With ten different pairs, there’s a lash for your every mood. If you feel like a little drama, just go for Major Length, but if you’re feeling a subtle, more natural look, opt for The O.G. They’re self-explanatory and that easy.
PROBLEM #5 - GOOD FALSIES ARE EXPENSIVE
Save the drama for your eyes, and not for your wallet. Be it Give Me Length or Keeping it Real, you don’t have to worry about burning a hole in your pocket. The length, the thickness and the volume may change, but what remains constant is their super affordable price point. Good things really do come in small packages (and cheap price tags!). Wink wink.
