Extreme eyelash extensions

Postby 4evryoung » Fri Feb 13, 2009 2:34 pm

Has anyone had these applied? I was at a spa yesterday and I noticed some of the girls had them---it is costly but they looked GREAT!!! Very real---She said it was $275 and they last for several months. Then you can come in for touchups.

The initial cost for me was around $350 excluding tip and it takes around 2hrs so bring your ipod. They looked fantastic and I had doll eyes.. but I would not do it again. Lasted almost 4 weeks before I had to make a decision for a touchup which was around $100. Your eyelashes naturally fall out every week but you won't notice it until it's the one with an extension attached to it hence the need for a touchup or you'll begin to look sparse and uneven.

The reason I didn't continue is one I can't stand sitting immobile with my eyes shut for that long, you'll need to straighten them out in the morning and personally I did not like the feel of them. You have to be very careful when washing your face and certain products can not be used or you'll loosen the glue. If you like facials or going to spa well be warned because the steam is a no no...you'll leave those lashes on the floor. Way too much for me to deal with. So again they were great for the wedding I attended or special event someone may have but as far as continually doing it I decided not too.

Now I'm currently applying Latisse to grow my own and it's working.

I didn't know that was out allready--have you ever tried Lilash? I heard good things I wonder how they compare? I think only for a special occasion I could do that extensions. It seems to pricey for me-- I would try the latisse though when it is available. Thanks.

I've never tried Lilash so I can't comment. However, Latisse is available now. I got it last week of January as Allergan sent Latisse to select doctors first, than to other Docs and finally to Distributors. So your local Pharmacy should now have it or can order it for you once it's prescribed.

Good Luck.

eyelashes

Postby April1956 » Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:42 am

Has anyone ever used Lash Extensions in a bottle by divederme (I think thats the spelling - I don't have it with me).

But anyway - I bought it at my PS office - its really great - it costs $35 and what you do is - put your own mascara on - then you put this mascara over top of that - and this is really the very first product that made my eyelashes look longer and fuller. It's like a fiber optic product - very hard to explain on here - but I'm very pleased with it.

April,

I have seen this as well---the one girl I spoke to loved and one girl said the little fibrs fell on her cheeks and it was rather messy--also I wear contacts so that is out for me, as I don't need those tiny fibers falling inside my eye. I am also wondering with the eyelash extensions how one puts in contacts. How can you stretch open the upper lid without damaging the lashes?

Lollipop thanks for that web site. I will check that out.

For 12 a bottle the lumigan from alldaychemist is a real deal!Its the same stuff a dr charges 150 for. Its the real stuff made by Allergan I think they have a plant in India.I wouldnt use any other lash product since lumigan has been proven to grow lashes very long.
