This Week’s Pop 5 Products…

[libsyn_podcast id=8631629]

I had the chance to chat with Jenelle Paris, Founder of Lash Affair on our Podcast, Skin. Body. Soul.  We talked about my upcoming Valentine’s Day article featuring an homage to lips and lashes. Jenelle gave me some insight into why she thinks that the lash extension business is booming! 

 “Lashes are the Ultimate Symbol For Femininity & Sexuality…”.  Jenelle Paris, Founder of Lash Affair. 

 Jenelle went on to say, “It’s powerful to have them!” 

… Lashes do something to you.  When you look back at cartoons, there would be two little bunnies and the only distinguishing characteristic from the female bunny and the male bunny was her lashes.

Check out Mini and Mickey below, obvi Jenelle nailed it!  

Femininity and sexuality are relative terms, but then again so are the volume of lashes.  One could ask is the volume of your lashes proportional to your femininity and sexuality?  Obvi, that’s a personal choice that every woman gets to make for herself and, I’m gonna say this loud for those of you in the back.  It’s a woman’s choice – and it’s no body else’s business!  

Ladies, take your pick!  The lash industry is growing every day.  New and exciting things are happening.  You can express yourself with natural lashes (with or without  a little help from a lash enhancement serum) long lashes, lash extensions, volume lashes, feather lashes, or even glitter lashes.  Your options are endless and we’re here to fully support your choice!!!   

If we’re gonna talk about femininity and sexuality, we have to talk about lipstick and lipgloss!  It’s a fact that women love lipstick!  They love it so much so, that there’s an economic term called, “the lipstick effect”. 

“The “lipstick effect” can be traced back to the Great Depression of the 1930s. In the four years from 1929 to 1933, industrial production in the US halved, but sales of cosmetics rose.”  The Guardian

You can’t argue with those facts.  It’s no surprise that at this same time in history, Coco Channel was ruling world wide fashion trends!  She probably helped bolster the lipstick sales with her now famous quote.  

“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” Coco Channel

I mean, it was the depression, everyone was probably a little sad!  Lipstick helped!  

But some women today, don’t want lipstick, they want something different.  Lipgloss has become a staple for so many women today!  

“Lipgloss is my calling.”  Vanessa Hudgens

“I just… put on mascara and lipgloss and I’m ready to go!”  Kelly Clarkson
