As much as I loved synthetic lashes in my glory days, I couldn’t help but notice that they became more uncomfortable to wear as I aged . My ever-so-sensitive allergies didn’t make the situation any better. My eye make-up would smudge and watery eyes would prevent those lashes from sticking. Inevitably, I became less confident about my lashes since I would always be adjusting them, reapplying glue and consistently looking in the mirror (As if I was obsessed with myself. Haha). I’m sure a lot of my women can relate to that predicament!!
I tried everything you could possibly think of to make it work. I had an adoration for lashes that kept me motivated to solve the problem (they say pain is beauty, right?).
I tried using new face lotions since I thought perhaps the cause was oily skin. I tried every brand of eyelash glue available. I even took a chance with eyelash extensions. You can say I tried just about anything and everything, yet my eyes were still watery and my lashes were still coming off throughout the day. You would think the world would have blessed us with an easier way to stay beautiful!
Until one day I came across “Mink” lashes and realized I had spoke too soon. I had heard about Mink lashes for a while, but honestly could not work up the courage to be impulsive enough to try them and I was stubborn to change. I was aware that they were not as inexpensive as synthetic lashes, but after rationally thinking about it, I realized that for my whole life I had been tossing my synthetic lashes at the end of the night since they were so uncomfortable to wear anyways. The accumulation of the cost of these one-time-use synthetic lashes did not weigh out. So I figured why not give Mink a try?
After my first use of MINK lashes, I immediately noticed an astounding, night and day difference! Immediately after I applied the lashes, it felt so comfortable that I never once had to readjust them. Not once did my eyes get watery and I surprisingly wore them all day without any issues. The hairs on Mink lashes are unbelievably soft and the cotton band does wonders. Not only have I been worry-free since getting introduced to Mink lashes, but I have honestly felt more beautiful and confident than I ever have!
And this is the short version of the story which started the journey that turned into Lady Kong- The Lash Co.
But the REASON behind the PASSION is this..
Your lashes tell your story.. which is why Lady Kong tries to tailor to all different types of women’s tastes, whether you are looking for Mink, Faux Mink or even Synthetic Lashes for those blessed beauties who don’t have all the sensitivities that I do. To allow you to tell YOUR story on any given day.
They say eyes can see into the soul.. and Lady Kong understands the profoundness in its meaning. The eyes can simply instill confidence. The eyes can give you empowerment. The eyes speak all the words that your mouth can’t.
I’m a very social person so I'm habitually out at gatherings, functions, and just socializing in general. And I happen to think that my lashes play one of the most significant roles in my attire no matter where the destination is. Accessorizing your eyes should not be overlooked! Investing in your beauty, confidence, and sovereignty is a necessity.
