My Experience with Eyelash Extensions

            About a little over a week ago, I decided to try out this new trend of eyelash extensions. I had seen an advertisement in the mall a few days before that for the "Amazing Lash Studio". Considering the fact that the price was a lot less than the rest of the studios I had heard of, I thought I might as well take advantage of it.

            Honestly, I was very nervous and skeptical going into the process because I did not know if the person applying the lashes was going to understand the look I was hoping for. I already knew two people from Bonas who have them, and they look beautiful, but are a lot more dramatic than what I wanted. The image I had in my mind were lashes that did not look like fake lashes, but did at least look a lot longer than my natural lashes.

            When I arrived at the studio, I filled out a bunch of paperwork mainly about potential allergies, and I was also told to wash the area around my eyes with an antibacterial soap they provided. Next, a lash stylist consulted with me about the different styles they offer and how I wanted to customize them for myself.

            Once we established the style I was going to get, I laid down on a massage table and they covered me from the neck down with a blanket. After turning the lights down, the applying process began; it took around two hours to complete with my eyes closed the entire time. Even though the waiting was painful, the actual lash application did not hurt at all. In fact, I barely felt anything being done.

            My first look in the mirror brought pure relief. They looked so natural and real; like they were my real eyelashes with really good mascara on them! The stylist instructed me to leave them completely alone for the next 48 hours. The reason why this is necessary is because the glue takes that long to fully dry before it can be exposed to any sort of moisture or friction.

            Now, the price was not nearly as pretty as the lashes. The total cost ended up coming to $137 including the extra products they suggest you buy to care for them. Plus, this was actually a reduced cost because I agreed to sign up for the membership program the studio offered that came with a discount on the extra products.

            Overall, I think they were worth the money. They save tons of time in the morning because I can skip all of my eye makeup and still look wide awake. Actually, they not only give an illusion of having mascara on, but they also give the illusion of having eyeliner on because of the of increase in amount of lashes on your lash line. In addition, the care for them is not difficult at all. The only thing I will say is difficult is if I put eye makeup on, it is really hard to remove without getting caught in the fake lashes and pull one or two out.

            If you are thinking about investing in these, make sure to contact me and I will be happy to give you all of the information for the studio that I went to in Rockaway, New Jersey! They also have studios all around the country, so if you do not live near Rockaway, I am sure you will be able to find another one near you.
