So I was reading about how applying castor oil or Vaseline to eyelashes right before bedtime can help make them thicker.
So I tried coating my tiny, thin, light lashes with castor oil 3 days a week, for 2 weeks.
It was really hard to coat the individual lashes with a Q-tip, so I took one of those disposable mascara wands they have at the make-up stations at Sephora.
First, taking paper toilet seat covers from public bathrooms. Now this. Hopefully, I'm not turning into another Winona Ryder.
Here she is at her trial. I bet she tried that headband on at the store and "accidentally" walked out with it on.
I applied the castor oil to my right lashes only, to see if I noticed a difference between the two sides.
I sure did. The Castor oil eyelashes felt so much softer and healthier. The other side felt like something Stuart Little would use to make a broom out of.
I also noticed a big difference when curling my eyelashes. The castor oil side took the curl and held it much better. So when I applied my mascara to the curled lashes, they did appear slightly more voluminous.
This experiment didn’t last very long. I found the castor oil seeping into my eyes overnight. For fear of losing my sight, in order to have longer lashes, which I wouldn’t be able to see anyway, I decided to ixnay the castor oil. Maybe I’ll try switching to Vaseline since it’s thicker, and maybe won’t seep in as much.
You know you've over done it with the lashes, when you start looking like Andy Rooney.
Has anyone else ever tried putting castor oil or Vaseline on their eyelashes to thicken them? If so did it work? A lot of people online seem to swear by it.
