A couple of weeks ago I posted about the semi-permanent lash extensions I received from Let’s Go Lashes, so I thought it was time to let you know whether I found them blinkin’ marvellous or just a pain in the eye *polite laughter*
Erm well the answer is – a bit of both. Firstly the good. As you can see from the picture above, these are some seriously thick and luscious lashes. I asked when I was having them done whether you could wear mascara over them, and the therapist just laughed and said there would be no need. She was right. During the day time, you can go really minimal with the rest of your make-up and just let the lashes provide a really feminine, fluttery look. Then at night time you can add heaps of eyeliner for full on vamp mode.
One downside, however, is that because these lashes are applied in clusters, when one cluster falls out, you get a big old gap in your lashes. This started happening after about a week, meaning I had to have them fully removed after just ten days. Also, they can be uncomfortable. You know how normal false lashes can sometimes dig in at the corners and really get on your nerves? That’s how it felt every morning when I woke up. Oh and I also felt like a knobhead going to my running club with a big set of falsies, but at least they kept the sweat out of my eyes.
On reflection, I’d say these lashes would be a great idea for a holiday where you don’t want to deal with too much beauty maintenance, or during December if you have loads of Christmas parties in a row. Otherwise just stick with your stick-ons.
