i'm really going crazy about having my lashes longer and thicker. by the way, what's the best, eyelash extension, eyelash perming or just applying quality mascara?

I have to say this, I hate mascara. It's such a pain to remove. Eyelash extensions sound way too expensive and too much of a hassle. Plus having someone do something so close to your eye like that there's always a possibility of having the procedure go horribly wrong. And eyelash perming? Yikes, it makes me flinch just thinking about it. So my vote would be to go with mascara. Maybelline Great Lash mascara has always been given a top rating in the US year after year. It's ok. It will give you a very natural look, so if you want some major lengthening & volumizing, I wouldn't go there. The mascara that is consistently mentioned as being one of the best is Lancome Definicils. Always. But it's not cheap. I've found that Diorshow is really good, but pricey. I tried Chanel's new curling mascara and I personally thought it was horrible. It was very clumpy on me. Right now, Allure Magazine has reported these mascaras as the ones their readers recommend as the best: Lancome High Defincils High Definition Mascara ($24) because it forms long, separated lashes. It doesn't mention it but I'm sure it will volumize too. Max Factor Volume Couture High Volume & Definition Mascara ($7.75) because it plumps your lashes without clumping or flaking. Maybelline New York Define-A-Lash Mascara Waterproof ($8) because it has a skinny brush that reaches every lash and the color is glossy on your lashes. I personally would love to see this on someone to see if their lashes really are glossy. I might have to go buy this... Good luck! I hope you find your perfect mascara!
