False lashes are like the breathalyzers of the beauty world. Perfectly glued to your lash line and looking soft and fluttery? You’re probably just one or two drinks in. Stuck to the side of your couch where you passed out at 2 a.m.? Pass the Aspirin. It’s rare that false lashes get a second life — but the one they lived the first time around is typically pretty worth it.
Most of us know the pain of applying false lashes for a night out, only to cry them off when you’ve had far too much to drink (just me?). Best case scenario: You’ve bought a spare pair of lashes, or you’ve at least remembered the glue. Worst case? Your glue is sat on your bedside table at home. And therefore you shove your lashes away in your clutch and risk ruining them forever. If you’re unfortunate enough to have dealt with the latter, one girl has come up with a solution to ensure you can save your lashes for another day – rather than letting them get crumpled and wrecked at the bottom of your bag.
This Twitter user has found a genius trick for extending the shelf life of her strip lashes — and it includes something you probably haven’t thought of since turning 21: Kinder eggs (also known as Easter egg).
Twitter user @#daniellehaighx, who goes by Dani, posted a photo of a Kinder egg labeled “lashes.” She explained that instead of storing jelly beans inside, she keeps her falsies and a tiny tube of lash glue in there to keep her strips from getting smashed in her bag at the end of the night.
