...The reason for lack of FOTDS/Tutorials...(SCARY pics ahead, enter at your own risk)

No, it's not because I'm lazy. It's not even because I'm busy (even though I am)....It's because....

I HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO THE LASH GROWTH ACCELERATOR I'VE BEEN TRYING!!!

See? It's not all fun and glamor being a beauty blogger. You have to risk a lot...

I look like a drug addict going through withdrawal. I've seen enough of those looks on the show called Intervention, which is very good.

SCROLL DOWN WITH CAUTION!!!


























AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm ruined!!!

Btw, I took these pics a few days ago, so my skin has gotten a lot better (updated routine coming up soon).

As you can tell, my eyes are red, swollen, burning, and disgusting.....This is why I'm patting myself on the back for always recording YT vids in multiples, b/c you never know when some shit happens and you have to stay in the down low for a little while. I hope my YT vids are enough for the time beings. I'm using Visine like crazy right now. They are getting better, so I should be back in a few days.

I'm sorry I scared you all with those pics.....but you should be thankful that this is not happening to you.

Take care,
Tao

Hey Tao.

Omg I had the same reaction to one of the eyelash accelerator serums I was using too! I hope you feel better soon, my dear. :( Sorry you are going thru this.

P.S. Was it the stupid Ardell lash accelerator? That piece of sh*t is useless, not only doesn't it do anything, it burns your eyes!!!

VanityTreasure said...

Oh dear! Please do take care!

Wishing you have a super speedy recovery (^_^)

whoa that sucks! i hate when i'm allergic to something...no makeup or anything for the next couple of days!

~Mel said...

woah girl!! that sux! my dr friend told me to be careful of those lash serums bc there's an ingredient in there that's mostly used in glaucomic patients.. i forget what the name was but be careful girl! i'm going to try the rapidlash that's coming in soon that we're going to sell in the catalog and i read the ingredients and looks good.

This is why I love your blog. You dont care about glitz and glam all the time and you show your raw self. I hope the allergic reaction goes away like SOON! =) Which product was it may I ask so that I know to avoid it?

Jaimie said...

oh no! how awful! i hope you feel better soon!

Purpleflock said...

I really hope you get better soon. Allergies suck, I'm allergic to something but not sure what it is yet, I'm pretty sure it's food related or maybe washing powder. I get rashes on my legs and it's always itchy. I always seem to get a rash when I'm with my boyfriend, maybe I'm allergic to him :(

Shari said...

Same thing happens to me with NYC and Maybelline eye products. It sucks when it happens! I hope you get back to normal SOON! :)

Emma said...

Hope things get better soon. Same happened to me a while ago when I tried some new skin care, ended up with red, sore skin and gross white lumps all over my face!

Sachi said...

Get well soon.
Allergic reactions are such a horrible ordeal.

jojoba said...

Catherine said...

Oh no! That's awful!! I've had a lot of allergic reactions to lip and body products, but I've been lucky with eye products so far... I really hope your eyes feel better soon! =/

NaTGN said...

Oh no! Feel better Tao! ><

rasilla said...

omg...
that is so unfortunate!
i hope that your eyes heal soon, you totally do not need that on your plate now >_<

Askmewhats said...

I had problems like that a year ago when I used eye drops!! Thanks for showing this Tao, at least I have to tell myself to stop using any lash accelerator or it'll come back to me!!! *hugs* I wish you well for sharing this to everyone, you help us a lot!!!

mayaari said...

eep! hope your eyes/skin clears up soon. it always sucks when something causes a reaction like that. i'm dealing with a weird sunburn-like peel on my forehead from something new that I used, it's so annoying! what was the product that you used?

xDarlingV said...

awww i'm sorry that happened girl! thats crazy!!

Sophie said...

i hope the allergic reaction gets better soon!

Queencess said...

Oh no! That looks like a horrible allergic reaction! I hope you recover quickly.

Anna said...

i had a mishap in tanning and had to stay away from youtube for a while too. it felt empty and barren lol

Zelly said...

So sorry for your reaction, try castor oil. It is a very popular solution for both eye lashes and eye brows.trust me

Meloentje said...

How awful for you!
I hope you recover soon!
Love,

irisax said...

WTF with the product!? which was it? that's so horrible :( no worries. while the reaction dies down, we'll all wait for you with patience :)

✿Ji✿ said...

That´s so sad, your beautiful eyes all red.*drop*
Hope you´ll get better really soon!<3

Anna said...

that's too bad!! ardell is far cheaper than the other accelators on the market. oh well, i guess you get what you paid for?

Bunnie said...

I'm sorry this happened to you! Were you using the Ardell one? I had the same exact reaction to the Ardell one..It was soooo annoying! I was using it fine for a few weeks, then all of the sudden I get an allergic reaction. Get well soon!

Aprille said...

omg that's scary. i also had some allergic reaction on my eyes but with liquid liner instead. it stung when i applied it but i kept using it for days then my lid started to get red and crusty. it took weeks for it to fully recover.

anywayz, you are totally my favorite blogger now!!!! why? because you're so damn real!!!!

Anonymous said...

Hey Tao.
Get well soon!:)

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

Omg TAO! are you okay? Hope you're feeling better by now :( Yeah i agree it's definitely risky for us all to test products like that :O Get better soon!! *sends love*

PowderPuffGirl said...

omigosh.. hope u get better soon :) becareful not to use too much visine tho or else you can get rebound red eyes :(

Tia said...

Hi, I am SO sorry that you got an allergic reaction frm that thing. What kind is it? I've always been curious and had my eyes on the Latisse Eyelash Growth for a good min. Just scare to take the plunge! I am now thinking twice and glad with the little lashes that I have. I do hope you get better soon. You blog is awesome, btw!

Oh, try using Optive eye drops beside Visine. We have a lot of patient's complaint, after using Visine, they're not really great for dry eyes. Its like a quick cover-up for the moment, but doesn't take away the problem. Take cares, hon!

laughingthrutheday said...

hi tao! i just started a blog and i came across your page! um. if you dont remember me from palmetto thats okay... but i hope everything is lookin brighter and better for you! allergic rxns are no bueno!! so feel better

take care

ps i just saw ur youtube u have a million vids girl! i cant wait to watch em :D

Jamilla Camel said...

Tao,

Did you see an opthamologist? You don't want permanent corneal damage to your eyes...please see a dr.!

Let us know how you are doing!

alilsoapy said...

aw feel better soon! what product were you using?

angie519 said...

Awww poor babe! Your eyes look so painful!

Was it the Ardell one? I'm so sorry! You should try dabbing on Yu-be onto the roots of your lashes next time. It works really well for me!
