Lashes for the win!
Not gonna lie, I thought these lash enhancing products were just gimmicks. But my eyelashes had become short and had been struggling to grow back from lots of lash extensions and I needed to find a solution to help them grow. So I purchased the GRANDE COSMETICS - GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum

Minimal Night Time Skincare
Here is my very minimal college student night time routine! I put these on every night after I wash my face and tone. I listed the products in the order i apply them(: ✨ Fourth Ray Beauty Rainfall - This is a 2% hyaluronic acid serum. It has a nice light cucumber scent and applies nicely and not sticky. I highly recommend this product as I have used it for over two years. I love how easy it is to apply and even use it whenever my face feels slightly dry. ✨ Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - I use this lip sleeping mask every night and find it very nourishing. It helped my lips a lot especially now that it is colder. It has a lot of product so it is definitely worth the price. The only downside it that it is not easy to apply so it may not be as sanitary if you choose to take it outside of your house. ✨ Base Butter Radiate Face Jelly - I recently started to use this product. It is a gel moisturizer and plumps my skin. It also has a nice scent. However, the consistency is very strange for a gel moisturizer and has little white specks in the product. I may have had a bad batch that was not mixed well enough but will continue to use as it leaves my skin plump. ✨ Grande Lash Enhancing Serum - I LOOOVE THIS. Would rate over 5 stars if I could. It leaves my lashes suuuuper long and does not itch whatsoever. ✨ LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream - I have been using this retinol for almost two years now. I am mainly using this product to target acne rather than anti-aging. It contains very little retinol which is great for everyday use. I mainly apply this to trouble areas but can be applied to the whole face. ✨ Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment - I think it is a light consistency for an eye cream. It fits me very well as I am in my early 20s and do not need a very thick eye cream.
HOW I GREW MY SHORT EYELASHES✨
Product: GRANDE COSMETICS - GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum Key ingredients: -L-Proline: An amino acid essential to healthy, fortified lashes. -Hyaluronic Acid: Conditions and protects to prevent breakage and brings hydration to dry, brittle, or damaged lashes. -Botanical Extract Blend: A powerful combination of nutrient and antioxidant rich compounds derived from natural sources (ginseng root, chamomile flowers, and bearberry leaves); strengthens the lash follicle. -Glycosaminoglycans: Locks in moisture and boosts lash resiliency and luster. What it does: “A cult-favorite lash enhancing serum that promotes the appearance of longer, thicker looking lashes in four to six weeks, with full improvement in as little as three months.” - Sephora Why I bought: I always wanted to try this product out but was skeptical. I bought this on Amazon prime day for about 2/3 of the cost. There was lots of mixed reviews on the product— some saying it caused allergic reactions and some seeing amazing results so I didn’t know what to expect. How to use: Sweep the brush on the lids above the lash line (do not apply directly to your lashes.) Use every night. Results: The first day I used this I was afraid I was going to have an allergic reaction because I have sensitive skin. I saw horror stories of people’s eyes turning red, swollen and some causing bumps. I followed the instructions and did not have any allergic reactions. My first two weeks using the product I thought I could see small results but the product says optimum results 2 months in. Today was the 2 month mark of using this lash serum and I cannot believe the results! I did not know my natural, short lashes could grow to this length! I have heard that when you stop using this product your lashes can start to fall out so that would be one side effect if true. For right now I will continue to use this product until the bottle is empty. Would I repurchase? I would repurchase because the results are amazing but I would love to use a more natural product if it were to deliver similar results. (I recently bought a natural lash serum from Etsy and can’t wait to give it a try after this serum is empty.) I have posted pictures comparing before grande lash serum, 1 month with grande lash serum and 2 months with grande lash serum. I would love to here your experiences with lash serums! 💭⬇️
Silly George week 5 update
Intro: This is week 5 of my 6 week silly George lash growth serum challenge. The website claims that you are supposed to see noticeable to dramatic differences by week 6. It’s been hard because I wanted to do this right! Using the serum morning and night on my top and bottom lashes and abstaining from using false lashes, which is if you read my previous posts the whole reason I’m using this product... Week 5 differences: So the main thing I’m noticing about my lashes is that they’re definitely growing. However, I had to stop using the serum on my bottom lashes because they are now the same length if not longer than my top lashes! I’m hoping by stopping it will help my top lashes catch up. Another things I’ve began to notice even since week 2 is that my lashes naturally stand up now as thought they’re crimped. Before they were pretty stubby pointing straight out and now they’re pointed which has been giving me more confidence in them without mascara. They also seem to be less blond so I’m thinking maybe they’re darkening or starting to grow in brown. (If you remember from previous posts the new growth was very blond and hard to get pictures of) Verdict: My verdict still stands! And I obviously really recommend this lash serum! I feel like it started working by week two and now I’m definitely reaping the rewards of my patience. It’s been a hard and long road of avoiding strip lashes (I clearly haven’t learned anything!!) but it’s was definitely worth it. I even got my mom hooked on this too🤣! Feedback: For starters I know I didn’t add a picture of my lashes without mascara to be honest I forgot 😅 and I will upload one soon! I will definitely have one next week on my final week of my challenge. I believe I will continue to use this even after the 6 weeks is up because I am really loving the results! I actually just bought another tube because mine was starting to run out. (So apparently a tube lasts 5 or 6 weeks) let me know below if you have used this product before and liked it! Also if maybe doing monthly updates would be something worth doing? I think it would be pretty cool to document long term growth using this✨
SILLY GEORGE-Lash Growth Serum
Best mascara ever
benefit - BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara I’ve been repurchasing this mascara for years now. Before this mascara came out, I used to use Benefits Roller Lash. Both mascaras are great but this one has a bit more of a bang. Benefit always nails their mascara game! What I 🖤? It’s not clumpy. The formula is smooth and coats my naturally long lashes to give a more volume in an more natural way. It definitely also has lengthening power. The plastic wand. Application is even and each lash is separated and covered with product. In the pic, I purposely didn’t wear eyeliner or other eye products to highlight the effect on my lashes. Its not waterproof but has great staying power. At the end of the day, I very rarely have panda eyes.
benefit-BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara
My #1 pick!!❤️💎
benefit - BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara I give applause to all the ladies that can work those falsies! I’m still in practice.....😩 But for those ladies that want that plush volume without the glueing this is your miracle worker!!!!! For only 25$ it can’t be beat for me! This stuff is water proof to the max! As long as you don’t rub the heck out of them this mascara is tough to get off! Even with eye make up remover it is a task! The claim is that it can last for 32 hours and it is not lying! Although we should not sleep with make up on I confess I have, and this stuff LASTS! No joke! The wand has stiff bristles and it tapers to the tip which is optimal for those little lashes. It is a layering process and you want to make sure you don’t have too much product on the brush because it can get goopy! But be slow and it should be even. As long as it is fresh then it is a very smooth formula. I am always looking for the best mascara but I stopped at this one. It gave me volume and length! And the staying power can not be beat!!! I will probably post a before and after tomorrow to show the awesomeness so stay tuned!❤️❤️ Already did my PM skin routine....

Before and after!
benefit - BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara As promised here is a before and after with this amazing stuff! I have not been awake long so I apologize it is not as pristine as it is with a steady hand! Also I chose not eyeshadow or liner so you can see exactly what you get with this product! Again I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff!!!! A must have!
