Perhaps it’s a case of always wanting what you don’t have, but I am obsessed with eyelashes. Without makeup, my blond lashes are pretty much invisible, so you name the mascara, lash extensions, or fake lashes, and I’ve tried them. So when I was invited to sample CryBaby, a professionally applied semi-permanent mascara, I was thrilled. Yesterday, I headed to Pipino 57 salon in New York for my session. Though I love all things lashes, I do have sensitive eyes, so I was a little nervous when I first arrived. But it was a quick and easy application that involved priming and curling my lashes and coating them with the Semi-Permanent Mascara. They dried in seconds, and they looked great. I didn’t wear a stitch of makeup all day, but my lashes popped, and my eyes looked amazing. I’m looking forward to two whole weeks of waterproof, smear-proof wear. But if the first two days are any indication, I’m already an addict whose paltry lashes are no longer something over which to shed tears.
