Look out, Halloween is sneaking up behind you!

You’ve got about a week to finalize your costume, carve a few pumpkins and stock up on candy. To get into the festive spirit, today Giles and I photographed the latest tricks and treats from our friends at BPAL for Halloween 2011 (lots more on the collection later this week). That’s him above in our Photo of the Week doing his best monster impression (“Grrr. Argghh.”) and swiping at the teeny bottles before him.

Question of the Week: – Eyelash curlers: necessity or luxury?

Answer: I’m a natural makeup type of girl, but I think an eyelash curler is a definite necessity. It’s fast, painless and that added curl to my lashes really opens up my eyes. In fact, I use a curler even when I’m going sans mascara.

A few treats from around The Lipstick League:

  1. for me, eyelash curlers are a necessity! My sad asian eyelashes need it and it also helps to have them curled with mascara..if i don’t, my liner can migrate much easier to my undereye area.

  2. LOVE Giles as Godzilla!

    Eyelash curlers are an absolute necessity for me, as they should be for everyone. Serious, if you don’t one one – go get one. The curl they give your lashes, and the subsequent wide eyed look is priceless.

    Shu Uemura’s is the best, imo. But I used Maybelline’s for years and think that’s a great drugstore alternative.

  3. I have three pairs of Shu Uemura’s eyelash curlers.. They are in a league all of thier own. One is a gold pair too! I agree with @stef, the Maybelline eyelash curler is as a great alternative for less and used it for years as did my Mom and sister. However, I am spoiled with Shu’s for sure! You can see the difference for yourself! They are a must and curl my lashes the best!

  4. New BPAL! My heart just skipped a beat.

    I’m not in the eyelash curler club. I’m a lucky girl- I have long, dark lashes with a pretty good natural curl. I tend to only use a curler when I have a big night planned or when I’m super tired/sick and I need the extra oopmh.

  5. I’m bad and don’t use an eyelash curler. Guess I need to invest in a good one since I never have. Just used the old fashioned cheap ones that don’t work that great.

  6. Eyelash curlers are a necessity. I’ve been using one since I hit high school and even if I’m not wearing makeup, I use my curler. I have almond-shaped eyes and look a little squinty without curled lashes :)
