Save or Splurge: Would You Get Lash Extensions?

How much is too much to pay when it comes to enhancing your look?

If someone asked me a week ago if I'd consider getting lash extensions, I would have thought he or she was totally nuts! But that was before I spotted a friend of mine looking noticeably... different one day. You know, in the way that makes you want to pull said person aside and begin an immediate inquiry into what their beauty routine was that morning (because they just look so incredibly gorgeous). The funny thing was, she didn't even look like she was wearing any makeup! So I was totally stumped as to what her secret could be. I found out later that she had just gotten lash extensions. And they weren't exactly cheap.

I know it sounds crazy but I totally wanted to get them after she told me -- they really did look that good. Unfortunately spending hundreds of dollars on something that only lasts a few weeks like my friend did isn't exactly in my budget right now (or probably ever), so I'm thinking about trying out this Jan Marini Mini Marini Lash Eyelash Conditioner ($60 at Bloom.com). Granted it's still not as inexpensive as a tube of mascara, but if my lashes could look half as good as my friends' did, I think it might worth it.

Has anyone used a lash conditioner before? Or have a mascara that gives them that lust-worthy long-lash look? I'm dying to know what you guys think!
