Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so, it’s very likely that you’ve heard of the brand What a Drag. They’ve taken the drag world by storm with their 301 lashes appearing everywhere – with even Willam of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 fame endorsing them.
For now, I’ll be covering the Lashes, and I’ll come back to the What a Drag wigs at a later date – so y’all better subscribe so you can find out what I have to say.
If you are a burgeoning drag king, queen or adjacent, it’s very likely that at some point you want to start getting paid for it. Drag ain’t cheap sis, and unless you’re getting onto RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, it’s very unlikely that it’s going to pay for itself unless you get yourself a regular performance gig.

Who do you think made it to the list?
