Trend Alert: Bling As You Blink

I thought this was just a passing trend until I noticed that more and more cosmetics companies have jumped on the studded eyelash bandwagon. First it was Madonna who debuted her famous Diamond Shu Uemura Lashes that supposedly cost about $10K, and then Revlon created Jewel Lash Drops which allows you to bedazzle your own lashes with a squeezable gel that dries to a gem-like substance.

I guess this look is fine if you are going out clubbing, but never for daytime wear. Can you imagine anything hurting more than a rhinestone falling in your eye? Yeesh! Here are two different styles of variations on this studded lash trend that bestow you to bat your lashes and bling!

Valerie Beverly Hills has created a new set of glue on falsies called Black Mink with Rhinestone Band ($100). These lashes are made from mink and the band is adorned with clear stones. Inside the light purple suede box you'll not only find a mirror for convenient application, but also a tube of lash adhesive.

For a more affordable way to bling as you blink

Too Faced Lash Gems ($15) are a set of adorable gems that are more lightweight than your average rhinestone, so you can glue them onto the tips of your real lashes or your falsies. The set comes with white, black, blue, and pink gems that adhere when moistened, plus an applicator to put it all together.
