Over 10 years ago, I discovered this product, made by Origins. It was one of the first eyelash “primers” on the market and when I saw how full it made my lashes appear, I became a huge fan. I always like to try new mascaras (shocking I know:-) but as long as I use this underneath my mascara, I get nice, long, full-looking lashes. Of course, there are certain mascara formulas that work better than others but that’s a topic for another day.
Anyway, after several years of “Underwear” use, I was doing some budget trimming and thought this would be a product that was merely a luxury and I could easily do without it as long as I had a good mascara. Well, I did survive for a couple of years without it but decided a year and a half ago to try it again. What came as a surprise to me is that I noticed I wasn’t losing nearly as many eye lashes when I removed my makeup at night. Not only does it help you use less mascara and make your lashes look longer and fuller, it also has a great benefit of adding to the “lifespan” of your lashes.
To purchase this product, you can find it at the Origins counter at your department store (Macy’s, Nordstroms, Dillards), at the Origins store or online via their website. The cost is $15 – this may seem like a lot but one tube usually lasts me about 3 months and I use it every day.
To use, simply apply a coat to clean eye lashes (don’t worry if it’s not evenly distributed or looks a bit clumpy in areas as your mascara will fix that) then immediately apply mascara on top of it. Tips: Don’t allow it to dry before applying mascara as it won’t bond properly with your mascara. Since you are applying the mascara over the Underwear before it’s dry, I recommend timing the start of a new tube of “Underwear for Lashes” with the start of a new tube of mascara. This will help your mascara last longer.
Give this underwear a try! Your eye lashes will thank you 🙂
