Lash staples are of course, the natural falsies that we use for bridal. Not only are they cheap, but they're entry-level length and thickness similar to lash extensions for a low-commitment lash length should mascara not be enough. When our usual source of falsies increased its rate to 10 pesos more expensive, the search for more affordable lashes came to be.
Thanks to Mikee and Rza, I was introduced to Mang Ed when I was complaining at where to get natural-looking falsies at a cheaper price. It's now my third time to buy lashes from Mang Ed and I wanted to share them to all of you. Mang Ed has been supplying lashes to freelance makeup artists, makeup students, makeup addicts, clubs, showgirls, and even celebrities. He told me that Iya Villania gets her lashes from him.
This is Mang Ed's bagful of lashes! Sometimes on a good day with lots of customers, that bag comes home empty.
Medium thickness for those who want extra oomph. These are Rza's favorites.
His lashes are actually very affordable. You buy them in bulk. A bundle of 1 dozen lashes costs Php 200 bucks, so that's roughly Php 17.00 per pair. The medium thickness ones cost Php 300 for 12 pairs of course and the extra long ones are Php 100 a pair. Aside from delivering the lashes and meeting up with clients, Mang Ed also takes part on production by making the boxes as well.
My own lash haul. See how long the avante garde ones now. Mang Ed tells me the ultra-long falsies are the ones used by drag queens doing shows. But with the right concept, they could be very fasyon too.
