Astraea V. Eyelashes
My dear friend Troy Surratt, makeup artist and creator of the incredible makeup line Surratt, is as equally, if not more, obsessed with beauty products as I am. He and I can talk for hours and hours about makeup, until we are both blue in the face and everyone else has rolled their eyes and left the conversation. Troy has been traveling to Japan for years on makeup buying trips and he is the one who told me about these unbelievable lashes. You can only get them in one store in Tokyo and when I go I sweep the shelf clean and take every single pair they have in stock. When I tell you these are the most beautiful lashes I have ever seen, you have to take my word for it. They are the softest, fluffiest, most finely tapered lashes I have ever encountered. When you look at them from the side, they practically disappear, that is how fine the hairs are. The curl is perfect, making your eyes seem bigger and more open without weighing them down and they are all so much more real looking and believable than any other lashes on the market. When I use them, I don't even bother using mascara on them since the beauty is how feathery soft the tips are; mascara would just clog them up. You can use and re-use them, up to 20 times if you take good care of them -- I like to gently wash the lashes with shampoo and use a clean mascara wand or spooly to brush out the hairs. It only takes a few minutes for them to dry and then they're just like when you first took them out of the box. These are truly, truly remarkable and I am so happy that I was able to import them so now I can also get my hands on them without having to travel to Tokyo!

Glamorous Eyes: These lashes are longer and fuller at the ends with shorter, finer lashes at the inner corners for a more feline look.
Gorgeous Eyes: Very slightly shorter at the inner corners and a touch longer at the outer corners, these lashes are sporadically criss crossed at the base giving them a slightly pointy, flirty feeling at the tips.
Pretty Eyes: The most natural of the lashes and the lightest and most feathery of the styles. These are longer in the middle and slightly shorter at the inner and outer corners.
