Revlon's new Lash Jewels top The Budget Beauty Babe's list of "Things that make you go 'Hmmm'..." —BB

Every once in a while, the makeup people release a product that is just completely impractical for anyone not working on the set of a movie. This is one such product. Don't get me wrong, it's an interested concept, however, because I am not planning on dressing up like a dew covered fairy anytime soon, I find it to be impractical and slightly bizarre.

Revlon has come out with a product called Lash Jewels Eye Accents. This tube of clear, slightly tinted goo is meant to be used to create "jewels" (read: droplets) of liquid on the tips of eyelashes. The promo picture is absolutely fantastic, and if they actually looked like that I would be dripping goo onto my lashes daily—but it doesn't, and I'm not.

The best way I can describe this is saying its like getting eye boogies on your lashes and leaving them there for someone else to point out to you and then responding with, "I know, don't they catch the light beautifully?" (cue other person walking away slowly.) The day I tried them out my boyfriend asked if I had been crying, and my mother kept trying to get them off thinking they were pieces of precariously perched lint waiting to fall into my eye and blind me.

Cool concept, really bad translation to real life. I don't recommend them - unless of course, you are a dew-covered fairy.

>> You can find Revlon's Limited Edition Lash Jewels Eye Accents at AmericaRx.com for $13.70.
