Eyelash Extensions Reviews

by Reika on January 12, 2011

Every time before I go on a vacation, I always get eyelash extensions as the last thing I want to do on my vacation is to spend hours in front of a tiny hotel mirror curling my eyelashes and applying coats of mascara, then they get smudged straight away as soon as I jump into a pool. As usual, I just had a set of natural eyelash extension yesterday as I’m going on holiday in 3 days, it was a painful 2 hours of application but it was all worthwhile as the outcome could not be anymore flattering. They totally look like my real lashes, but fuller, longer and darker. For those of you who still contemplates whether to get eyelash extensions or not, here is the summary of my thoughts

Cons:

– It usually takes about 2 hours, for someone like me who has no patience it could be a torture.

– It is quite painful (at least to me) when they remove the glue residual around my eyes, I felt my skin has been torn and my eyes always end up swollen and red for hours.

– Some people end up having an eye allergy for days if they happen to be allergic to the glue badly.

– It is an ongoing maintenance, since it requires a refill at least every 4 weeks.

Most important point: my beautician kindly told me to not be reliant on eyelash extensions as the glue can damage the roots of your real lashes, she has seen many girls who end up having bald patches in lashes permanently. As for me, one third of my lashes fell after each extension, but they grow back eventually.

Pros

– They enhance your natural lashes to the most beautiful extent, if you go for a natural set – don’t expect a drastic change. The enhancement is just really natural and subtle, but beautiful.

– It saves your time from doing makeup

Most important point: you look beautiful even without makeup!

So here are the eyelash extensions before and after pictures.

Since I asked for The Most natural lashes, the picture doesn’t really capture a significant difference. I hope you can still see the lashes are noticeably longer. I think the length of the lashes range from 1.5cm to 1.8cm, which are about 0.3cm longer than my real lashes.
