Eyelash Extensions - Advice?


I am debating getting eye lash extensions but I am unsure about them.
Are there any negative effects? Do they get in the way? Any advice?!

Love them

I was afraid lash extensions would ruin or damage my natural lashes but they go back to normal after the lash extensions shed. Depending on the individual person, you will have to get them filled every two weeks or monthly. It will look sort of strange after your lash extensions start shedding because you will notice sparse areas so if you don't want to continue with the lash extensions you can get them professionally removed. I noticed at least one lash will shed every day. It won't start looking noticeable until two weeks. You can choose how long, thick or curly you want the lash extensions. You can go with a more natural look or dramatic if you like, depends on what you're comfortable with. Sometimes the first couple of times in the shower, my eyes will sting maybe from the glue but it's tolerable in my opinion. You will have to maintain them such as brushing them in the morning and evening to keep them looking nice. In my case, I was hooked after the first time. I wish I could have them done all the time but it is pricey. I love the way they look. It saves time in the morning since I don't have to apply mascara. Sometimes I even go without eye shadow because the lashes already make my eyes pop.

Lost my eyelashes

I had my eyelash extensions for a litte over a year.
I had extensions refilled every three weeks, as extensions were falling out. In about three months after having extensions I noticed that I lose more of my natural eyelshes together with extensions.
In about 5 months I had empty spaces on my eyelid were I had no eyelashes at all. I started using LATISSE to regrow my natural eyelshes and make them stronger to handle glue and weight of extensions.
Now I was spending $60 for refills every 3 weeks and $120 for LATISSE every 6 weeks. After a little over a year I gave up and had my extensions removed. My eyelashes were gone. I had small pieces about the size of 1/6th of my previous natural eyelashes. Some spots were completely bold. I started looking for various eyelash growth solutions while wearing false lashes for 6 weeks while my natural eyelashes were growing back. Now i use FYSIKO eyelash serum, as I feel it was he only solution that helped me to grow long and ful eyelashes and costs resonable for working product

cheap alternative

Don't forget Rapid Lash people! It's only around 50$ where I live, and it's insanely effective IMO.

Don't Do It

Just wear falsies whenever you need an eye "pick-me-up."

There is not ONE individual I have seen with lash extensions that has looked great with them.

They appear spidery, often times extremely obvious, the hairs don't seem aligned straight and they are just plain noticeable.

It's really not flattering and I hope many women realize, natural or corner falsies are the way to go.

Try Something More Natural

I did the whole lash extension bit every 2 weeks for a year. $2000 later all I have are short stubby lashes that won't grow back!!! I tried Jan Marini and L'Oreal and a few other growth serums but nothing worked. I actually tested a serum for a small company earlier this spring and I think they're starting to sell soon!! My eyelashes grew like 3mm it was insane. The company is called Wink and I don't know if that's the whole name but it's an all natural formula.. really gentle on the eyes, works amazing. I would definitely recommend it!

I had a friend get eyelash extensions. According to her (and what I saw of her fake eyelashes), they only last for about nine days before they begin to fall apart. She said washing off mascara was a pain to begin with, and the lashes would stick together. Then the glue gave out and a few of the false lashes fell out, along with a few real ones, leaving her with these patchy "bald" spots adjacent to the longer falsies. It was noticeable and weird-looking, unfortunately.

Eyelash extensions appear to be more for a one-time occasion deal, such as a wedding or special event. In that case, it would be cheaper and less-damaging to wear false eyelashes.

dont do it

Honestly, just use false eyelashes when you really need to. Its a lot less pricey and you can remove them at the end of the day so you dont damage your real eyelashes. You can buy various kinds online for about a dollar per pair and they work just fine. Eyelash glue is about 10-13$ and comes off easily with make up remover at the end of the day. Once you mess up your natural lashes its very hard to restore them to their previous state.

Lash removal

Does anyone no a pleasant way to remove lash extensions without it stinging the clients eye-I have tried several and I can't find one that doesn't irritate the eye.

I loved the look of my lash extensions when I first got them done and every fill I got they looked amazing. But after about a week I really started to notice how sparse they were getting and it really annoyed me. My lashes fall out a lot so I had to get mine filled about every 2 weeks. It got really expensive to have them filled that often. I did find it make my lashes more brittle when I got rid of the lash extensions.
