The Longer The Better! Right?

All about Lashes Roughly two weeks ago I decided to get eyelash extensions in a salon located in LIC. I was really surprised at how inexpensive it turned out to be. I payed $25 for top individual lashes that only took 15 minutes to apply. Last time I wore eyelash extensions was for my weeding 6 years ago and I payed $85 in a 'professional place' that took nearly 45 minutes. I knew I had to give them a try and share this very trendy experience with you. 

Before you start, you get to choose the size you want. I chose extra long and very black ones. The lashes are applied in between the roots of your real lashes. The process was uncomfortable for me because you sit down on a chair looking up the whole time while they glue individual lashes onto your eyes. The glue they use is one that burns like crazy if it even touches the inside of your eyes (which happened quite frequent). Therefore I had to hold a fan blowing in my eye the entire time. After the torture was done I loved how they looked and felt; naturally full. Not heavy like most eyelashes feel, just right. That first night I could not sleep at all! It was so uncomfortable to sleep with them because I didn't want them to get messed up and I felt like if I moved too much they would come off or loose their shape. Everything got better after my first sleepless night. I felt more comfortable with them as they became part of me. Washing my face, showering and applying makeup was a breeze. Until the second week came along. 

The second week came along and things started to get bad. The lashes started poking the inside of my eyes and they started loosing their shape. I started to remove them by pulling them off after my eyes started to get irritated. Not to my surprise I lost most of my real lashes. It's simple a price to pay for looking good for two weeks. Now I'm looking into Nutraluxe Lash md for eyelash growth. Have you heard of it?

*In order for the lashes to last this long you must take care of them. No hot water when showering, when washing your face make sure you pat it dry and always be aware that they are attached to your real lashes.

The main question is: Would I ever apply them again? Probably, just because I never learn my lesson. Yo tengo la cabeza como un coco!

Have you tried eyelash extensions? I would love to hear your experience.

Todo sobre las pestañas hace aproximadamente dos semanas me decidí a conseguir extensiones de pestañas en un salón. Yo estaba muy sorprendida de lo barato que resultó ser. Pagué $25 para pestañas individuales que sólo tardó 15 minutos para aplicar. La última vez que me puse extensiones de pestañas fue para mi boda hace 6 años y page $85 en un "lugar profesional" que se llevó casi 45 minutos para terminar. Yo sabía que tenía que darles una oportunidad y queria compartir esta experiencia muy de moda con ustedes.

Antes de empezar, puedes elegir el tamaño que deseas. Yo elegí las extra largas y muy negras. Las pestañas se aplican entre las raíces de su pestañas verdaderas. El proceso era incómodo para mí, porque te sientas en una silla mirando hacia arriba todo el tiempo, mientras que individualmente pegan las pestañas sobre tus ojos. El pegamento que utilizan es uno que quema como loco si toca el interior de sus ojos (que pasa frecuentemente). Por lo tanto, tuve que sostener un ventilador que soplaba en mis ojos todo el tiempo. Cuando termino me encantó la forma en que se veía y sentía, bien natural. No son pesada como la mayoría de las pestañas se sienten, bien libianas. Esa primera noche no pude dormir para nada! Fue muy incómodo para dormir con ellas porque no quería que se doblaran. Pense que si me movía mucho ivan a perder su forma. Todo fue mejor después de mi primera noche en vela. Me sentía más cómoda con ellas, ya que se convirtieron en parte de mí. Lavarse la cara, ducharse y aplicar el maquillaje era bien facil. Hasta que la segunda semana llegó.

La segunda semana llegó y las cosas empezaron a ponerse mal. Las pestañas empezaron a meterse en el interior de mis ojos y comenzó a perder su forma. Me pullaban hasta que se me irritaron los ojos. Empecé a arrancar me las  después de que mis ojos comenzaron a irritarse. No para mi sorpresa, he perdido la mayor parte de mi pestañas verdadera . Es simple un precio a pagar por lucir bien durante dos semanas. Ahora estoy investigando de algo que se llama Nutraluxe Lash md de crecimiento de las pestañas. ¿Han oído hablar de él?

La pregunta principal es: ¿Me las pondria de nuevo? Probablemente, el hecho de que nunca aprendo mi lección. Yo tengo la cabeza como un coco!

* Para que las pestañas duren tanto tiempo debe hacerse cargo de ellos. No usen agua caliente en la ducha, al lavarse la cara asegúrese de secarlo, siempre tenga en cuenta que están unidos a su verdadera pestañas y puedes perderlas en cualquier momento.

  2. This all sounds terrifying, like all my eye phobias rolled into one, but I'd probably still try them. You look gorgeous!

  3. I did that once for like $50. I will probably never do that again. My eyes were burning like crazy and if the glue gets in your eyes, u might mess up your eye. It is not worth losing my eyes. It was so uncomfortable holding a fan facing you and trying to keep your eyes open but they looked good at the end....

  5. I've never tried false eyelashes! I'm terrified of anything coming near my pupils. I remember a few years ago when people would try using colored contacts as a trend and I just couldn't bring myself to bring anything close to my eye. That's why I stick to mascara-lots and lots of it!
