Trends in Fluttery, Come-Hither Lashes

We are unrelenting in dressing up, flicking and fluttering our lashes so it's no wonder top beauty brands continue to dispatch a bevy of newfangled devices and products that help lengthen, define and costume them to the nines.

From a semi-permanent fix, to spinning wands and paint on fiber extensions, here's what recently caught our...errr eye!


Newest to the market - Dior's DiorShow 360 Mascara ($36), the first ever volume-boosting, lengthening and curling mascara with a spinning wand.

This mascara mimics a makeup artist's application technique for a perfect 360-degree lash styling effect. The ultra-plump double-helix brush rotates in both directions to adapt to every need, whether you're left- or right-handed or you want to pump up upper or lower lashes.

As a fan of the original DiorShow (the formula becomes slightly thicker and keeps improving week after week after having air pumped in), we're psyched to give this a go but cautious that the initial thinner formula might cause paint spatter drips on our lids.


How about adding extensions to your lashes every morning? d.j.v beautenizer Fiberwig LX ($24) boasts individual fiber extensions that lengthen lashes without the clumping. Each swipe of the brush encapsulates lashes essentially "brushing-on" eyelash extensions. Elongate the look by dabbing the fibers from the tip of the brush to the tips of lashes repeatedly until you reach your desired length!

d.j.v. beautenizer recommends using an eyelash curler only at the base of lashes after the formula completely dries - the lashes encapsulated within the film-coating have become resilient enough for curling post-application without the breakage.


Line n Grow ($39), a tinted eyelash enhancer, works double-duty as a daily eyeliner (available in black, chocolate, midnight blue, eggplant and olive) that also lengthens your lashes without using drugs or prostaglandin analogues in just 4-6 weeks.P243801_heroP243801_hero

We also love Buxom Lashliner ($15), a lash line enhancing conditioning treatment that instantly pumps up your lashes while depositing rich color. The whipped gel eyeliner formula glides on smoothly and is infused with vitamins A, C and E; Honeysuckle, Jojoba Oil, Tourmaline and Biotin which supports healthy lashes.

Not a liner gal? Get the benefits of lash enhancement with Tarte's MultiplEYE Natural Lash Enhancing Mascara ($24). Clinically proven to increase the appearance of lash volume by 638% while also increasing the appearance of lash length with regular use, you can now fortify your lashes without the extra step!


How does a semi-permanent mascara that gives you dark, sculpted lashes that last for up to six weeks with no smearing, clumping and flaking sound to you?

LashDip ($200), dubbed "the world's most perfect coat of mascara," adds volume, increases length, provides lift, curve and separation-similar to that of traditional mascara-but won't smudge or wash off for weeks.

The LashDip application consists of a trained "Dipper" cold-air-curing lashes with a black velvety gel that sculpts and curls each individual lash. LashDip shrink-wraps itself around each lash, giving 360-degree coverage; as more of the product is brushed on, the tube builds up and out.

The results are dramatic, offering longer, feathery lashes that are separated and clump-free-application you can typically only hope for each morning as you sleepily apply cosmetics.

Want the long-wear look without the $200 commitment? Tarte's 4 Day Stay Lash Stain ($18) keeps lashes looking naturally full and fresh for up to four days without reapplying!
