I’ve been in a rut the last 6 months about realllly wanting to get eyelash extensions but not having the budget for a $100 splurge every few weeks. I searched far and wide for an alternative that would be easy and inexpensive – I hit the jackpot. At less than $10 I found a starter kit of individual cluster lashes.
You can find them at any drugstore of places like Walmart or Target. Most kits come with several individual lashes, glue, fine tipped tweezers, and adhesive remover. You can also purchase the individual lashes separately for lash refills.
I just apply them as close to my lash line as I can without getting them on my actual lashes (if you get them on your lashes and need to take them off, you’re gonna cry. It hurts lol) and please in the name of Jesus don’t put them under your lashes – I literally watched videos of girls who did and it was a nightmare. It only took about 45 minutes to apply the clusters. For me, these clusters lasted about 5 days and I only had to re-glue a couple every few days.
This might seem “extra” but I’m very self-conscious about my natural lashes, which are thin, short, and sparse. Wearing these extensions has rid my need for mascara and even eyeliner. It has cut the amount of time I spend on make-up in half.
So, if you’ve been searching for a cheaper alternative to eyelash extensions, give these cluster lashes a try. I’m OBSESSED.
