Eyelash Extensions?


I have an opportunity to get my eyelashes done, and I'm wondering about lasting effects? Obviously eyelash extensions are beautiful, but are they harmful to your natural eyelashes? Do they come off on their own or do you need to get them removed at some point? I would love to get them done but I don't want to risk damage to my natural lashes.

I used to get mine done all the time - I have long lashes to begin with and the extensions gave my eyes the 'wow' effect without looking over the top fake. I went to a local salon that specialized in lashes and the wonderful gal who did mine was certified. I paid at bit more than the going rate ($165), but did so because she had impeccable reviews and really takes care of her clients and educates them on lash care. If you have thick semi-long lashes like I do, be prepared for time, mine always took around 2 hours to apply a full set and fills ($65) were about an hour or so. My gal really takes her time and applies an extension to every single lash with care. I also got them filled every two weeks, no later.

I had no damage at all done to my lashes, and when I had the extensions in I really took care of them. I brushed them twice a day and applied a sealant. I used 'Minky's True Black Sealant" and applied it daily. The salon uses the Minky's lashes and so they had the sealer for around $10. It makes them last longer, adds some moisture and a hint of black gloss in color. I was also told to not use any mascara or any oil based cosmetics on them, so I just checked the labels on my eye make remover and facial cleanser.

I didn't get them removed at the end, I just let them fall out and was able to remove the last handful very carefully with tweezers around 4 weeks or so, they came off pretty easy by that time. But if you want them off sooner, than I would recommend having the salon remove them. I loved mine when I had them done and am planning on getting them done again soon.

They're a waste of money. Once they fall off, your natural lashes will be like half the size. Thankfully they grow back fast but still. I won't do it again when you can get a pack of lashes at Walmart for like ten bucks.

Try lash tint and lift?

I was debating between lash lifts and lashes and I went with the lashes. I LOVED them when I had them in. I never had to worry about makeup and it made getting ready so much quicker. It's definitely a lot of maintenance though. Unfortunately, I did experience them damaging my lashes. They didn't fall out, but rather my lashes almost broke in half instead. They were there, but they were just so much shorter. It's mostly grown back now (took about a month), but it's still not the same as it was before.

My friend did the lash tint and lift and she loved it and will continue to do it since there is no damage to the natural lashes.

Damaged my lashes

I had mone done and filled twice. I paid a bit more as the woman was a nurse and came highly recommended. It took about 1.5 hrs for a full set. They looked absolutely amazing, however when it came time for me to go back to natural my lashes were half the size and very dmanaged. From what I understand if the lash weight is too much for your natural lashes it will break the natural lashes which causes them to look very short. Luckily I used a lash growth serum and they grew back quickly. I have not had them done since and I use glue on lashes when I want an extra dramatic look.

I love mine.

I've had mine for about 6 months. No damage to my lashes but I did react the first time. My cheek went puffy. Now it's fine. Be prepared to have both eyes closed for the duration or the appt. I love them.

Used to have them done

I used to get extensions as they look amazing but I stopped. Too expensive. Constantly need to refill once every 3-4 weeks. My natural eyelashes would fall off. Now I only use eyelash growth serum if I really feel my lashes are too short. But mascaras are so amazing nowadays and should do the trick!
