Semi Permanent Mascara - Half your make-up done?

I have always been curious about Semi Permanent Mascara and Eyelash & Brow Tint. Now I have long eye lashes that are decently dense in my opinion that with Mascara they have the potential to look like I am wearing falsies.

Self flattery aside, the thought of waking up with dark, luscious lashes has always temped me only because the hair on my body is black but not dark hence making my lashes a light black shade. It doesn't really do anything for my lashes length and volume because if they are not dark enough, sadly they look invisible.

Whenever I am without mascara at home or forget to wear it someday, I look instantly ill, sleepy or tired. I remember I time when I used to wear only clear mascara and remember it doing nothing for my lashes because unfortunately they are designed for those with naturally dark lashes. Here comes my temptation to opt for semi permanent mascara.

I know there are a few brands in drugstores that promise to deliver similar effects with regular mascara and I've tried them all only to be disappointed. I believe the actual treatment in the salon is what will cut the mustard for me. Can you imagine, absolutely no worrying about mascara flakes getting in between contact lenses or dripping all over the face in rain?

I can imagine it being a beauty boon for swimmers or athletes. I mean who wants to hit the gym with a tonne of mascara on eh? If you're a lip gloss and mascara kind of girl then semi permanent mascara would mean half your make-up done! I've heard the results last till 4-6 weeks and work wonders for non-existent or scanty lower lashes.

Would you give it a try? Let me know.

I totally know what you mean, I need mascara or I feel I've been half undone, ha!

I have been looking into semi-perm lashes, the only thing is I've read it can cause some damage to your natural lashes?
