Long, thick, dark lashes make everyone look (and feel) better. It’s a fact. But until lash extensions come down in price and Lumigan gets FDA approval, most of us will have to be content struggling with the barely adhesive glues and difficult-to-maneuver falsies of red carpet (and drag queen) favor. There is a better way, though, thanks to Vincent Longo, whose La Dolce Vita Lash Collection is arguably one of the best on the market. One-third the size of traditional false lashes, they amplify your natural lashes in a way that is subtle but still dramatic. They also come with a specialized, exclusively formulated glue that goes on bright blue for perfect placement then dries to a clear finish. If you still can’t get them on right, though, Longo will make a house call to help guide you in the process. Seriously. He’ll be at Barneys from 1 to 5 p.m. tomorrow to showcase the line. Call 212-833-2654 to make an appointment.
Aside from creating a one-stop shopping zone for all of your makeup and skincare needs, Sephora has changed the game for beauty junkies in a few other ways as well. First, there’s the free samples—testers of each product that are just sitting there (with disposable applicators) so you can preview a product before buying (or touch up your concealer and add a few coats of mascara when you conveniently run out of your own before a function. Oh, what, like you’ve never done it?). Then there’s the store’s unique ability for packaging choice products into limited-edition box sets and selling them as in-store exclusives. Our favorite set from this fall’s offerings is the Lash Stash, the second edition of a genius concept that puts ten different mini mascaras in one box for $35. With customer favorites from brands like Tarte, DuWop, Make Up Forever, Vincent Longo, and Smashbox, you can test-run all the different curling, lengthening, and thickening varieties without shelling out for ten full-size (full-price) tubes.
