hey Heidi, I bought false lashes from E.L.F. but the glue was all dried up. It didn't work so well, but I got a taste of what I look like, it was fun. I don't recommend their line though. I haven't tried another brand yet, since I don't have the finances to cover it. BUT I've heard a lot of great things about a couple higher end brands. The thing they say is to buy the kind of lashes that intermittently vary in length. Or just the individual lashes you can spread along your lashline. They aren't too scary. Try them! :D let me know...:)
