my local MAC store (for you Chicago ladies, I went to the one on Armitage, where they couldn't have been nicer) to buy some lashes, and for the princely sum of sixteen dollars, I was able to buy a set of lashes and a professional application. Priceless!
The extremely nice makeup artist who put on my lashes even offered to put on my eye makeup for me, which I loved. (You can also make an appointment for a full makeup application, with a guaranteed start time, for $50. If you walk in, you're at the mercy of their timing, but it's complementary!)
Latisse, the prescription potion that you put on your lashes to make them grow. It made me want to use it, but I'm too afraid that it will irritate my weirdly sensitive eyes. Have any of you tried it?
