  1. I immediately wondered a couple of things: When putting on mascara, we blink more. The same is true for adhering false lashes. Wouldn’t those situations skew the count? Also, who gathered all of this information, how was it gathered, and how much of the government’s (gathered by taxes to the people) money was spent on the study?
