Why do I prefer false eyelashes over eyelash extensions?  Let me count the ways…. Eyelash extensions are the new craze that’s taking over the world of cosmetics.  For the life of me, I cannot understand why.  Sure, they have less day-to-day maintenance than false eyelashes, but they are very expensive to apply, you have to see a professional in a salon to get it done, and they end up falling out and you have to get them reapplied every 3-4 weeks if you don’t want them to appear uneven!  That’s over a hundred dollars for the application and upwards of $75 to get them filled!

I don’t know about you, but I could buy YEARS worth of high quality, beautiful false eyelash strips for that kind of money!  False eyelashes are much less expensive and you can reuse certain pairs over and over, which makes them an even better bargain.  If you invest in a good quality brand of falsies, you are still spending less money than extensions and they look much better.

Eyelash extensions look beautiful for the first few days.  But they start to fall out and become sparser as time goes on.  False eyelash strips look perfect every time you wear them and they don’t disintegrate!  Once you get the hang of application (which takes about 3-5 minutes at home in your pajamas instead of heading to the salon for an extended session), they’re easy to put on and they look amazing.  Plus, you don’t have to deal with little fake lashes falling out all the time as they grow out.

The other reason that false eyelash strips are so much better than extensions is their versatility.  When you get extensions, you’re locked into your look for the 6-8 weeks that it takes for the eyelashes to completely fall out.  I don’t know about you, but I have much more style than that!  I change my look from day to day and like to spice things up if I go out at night or go on a date.  With false strip eyelashes, it’s easy to choose a more natural style for the office or hitting the farmers market, and then you can just pull them off and add some dramatic lashes for a night on the town.

At the end of the day, false eyelash strips are less expensive (even for the high quality ones!), look better and offer a much wider range of styles than getting the more permanent eyelash extensions.  For a much bigger bang for your buck, choose the false strips.  You’ll thank me.
