Shelley Barrett, former model agent and founder of Modelco Cosmetices, whom I met in Henri Bendel the other day was offering makeovers to walk-ins. When I saw what she did with eyelashes, I had to be next on line.
I asked her, "Did you glue on false eyelashes?" "No," she said. "Well, then how many coats of mascara did you put on - her eyelashes look amazing." "None, yet" was her response. I was anxious in waiting and this is when she told me about her Lash Wand Heated Eyelash Curler. OMG, I had to have it! It's a battery-operated apparatus, the same size as a tube of mascara, which heats up within 2-3 minutes. By placing the wand at the very root of your lashes and then holding it there for 10-15 seconds as you work your way to the tips, your lashes come out looking like falsies; soft, long and brilliantly curled. Since the wand never gets super hot, there is no risk of damaging your lashes. The best part is that it sells for $25.00 - the average price of most designer mascaras, plus, the little battery in the back is replaceable.
