Yuck. That's all I can say. Just Yuck.

So I had a clump of waterproof mascara on my eyelashes that would not come off. I figured I would just scrape my fingernails along the lashes and perhaps it would dislodge.


A HUGE, HUGE I TELL YOU clump of lashes came out. I have a bald eyelid now. So I figured I would just look for a picture of eyelashes and give the general warning to be careful in removing mascara. Just to keep what happened to me from happening to you.

But instead of normal eyelash photos like this one:

I found more images like these:
These are mites that live. YES, I said LIVE. In your eyelashes. Hideous aren't they.

EWWW. I'm so creeped out. I can't stand it. I mean, I knew that kind of stuff lived there. I read. I'm all up on that kind of info. But I'd never seen a close up of 'em before. Yuck.

So that's all I want to say. Oh, except to report that the mites don't poop. Fascinating and gross at the same time. I just can't talk about it any more. If you now have an irresistable desire to stare at this train wreck a little longer - go here: Do You Know What Lives In Your Eyelashes? .......
