Lash Extensions

Friday, June 12, 2009

Have you ever wished you had thicker, fuller lashes? Tired of putting on the false lashes? Well…lash extensions could be your answer! For about $90 you can have your first set of individually clued on lashes to your own lashes and in 3-4 weeks (when they have grown out/fallen off) you can get them replaced for around $45. I have been noticing this popular trend among beauty editors alike and have been contemplating the lash application and thought I would open it up to all of you fellow beauty fans to hear your thoughts. Have you done it, would you do it?

I would most definitely do it! I hate my lashes and have tried every product on the market (within reason!) Where do I sign up? Who does it?

i TOTALLY would! I have long lashes but they aren't that thick and they are blond. So I spend a lot of time putting mascara on and I use false lashes lots.

I have it and I LOVE it! My eyes really pop out and no mascara can rival the effect. My make-up routine is considerably shorter, too. Tips: if you know someone who has gotten eyelash extensions, do ask whether they were happy or not. No two technicians are alike and this translates onto their lash job. When badly done, it's uncomfortable, can be itchy and tends to unglue itself quickly. When beautifully done, you don't feel them at all except if you are wearing glasses (since the lashes are looong LOL) and they look pretty good until the next maintenance session. One girlfriend said my lashes were indecently long - but she didn't know I had had extensions and didn't suspect a thing. The two who know love it. Others think I have long lashes, use good mascara and have mastered my mascara technique. Between the extensions and having my eyebrows threaded, that part of my face is impeccable. Batting my lashes has never been more fun than now LOL ;-)

I can understand why someone would want those; I myself have naturally weak and wimpy lashes. But I personally wouldn't do it. I'd MUCH rather spend the money on one of those lash fortifiers- you know, the kind that condition and nutrify your lashes so they'll grow longer and stronger. Sure, it's NOT instant gratification, but I've had great success (insert picture of Borat!) with those, AND it's nice to know they're my own lashes! Plus, I'm more than a little wary of letting someone else glue stuff to my EYE area. I don't know if I could sit still for that!

I think its a great idea, if something is going to make you feel better about yourself then go ahead, more power to you. I also think its a better alternative (for some) to the new perscription that have been advertised on TV to get thicker fuller lashes, i just don't trust a drug that may or maynot discolor my iris.

I've been considering getting lash extensions but everywhere that I've checked has been too pricy. I have not found a place yet where the extensions are under $200. I don't know about anyone else but that seems this point I'm like I'll keep putting my false eyelashes on. Bummer!

since i naturally have short eyelashes i used to think about trying this out. but after seeing a friend who had a lash extension installment go terribly wrong... i've reconsidered. there are so many new mascaras out in the market now and i'd rather try out a new lengthening mascara for $5 and be able to remove it that night than pay $90 for something i may not even like which i will be stuck with for a month!

i haven't done it and i probably won't try it. $90 is a lot for something that will only last for 3-4 weeks. for some special occasions i may use fake lashes which works fine, but for everyday use, a little mascara is enough.

I hardly think that longer eyelashes are worth $90! I use the false eyelashes (from E.L.F. of course) and they always do the trick if I want something bold. My lashes are super short but mascara or fake eyelashes work for me, so I wouldn't do this. It may be pretty at first, but once they grow or fall out, wouldn't it leave gaps in your lashes?

I had lash extensions applied once when I lived in St. Louis a couple of years ago. It was wonderful waking up with long, beautiful lashes and not having to apply mascara. However, mine started falling off in less than a week, so I couldn't see going back and spending even more money and time (a couple of hours) for a touch-up. If you are contemplating getting lash extensions, make sure you go in without mascara. I had mascara on and removed it with soap and water at the salon, and I suspect this is what caused the extensions to start falling off so quickly.

I actually like the idea. There are several salons in my area that do them for much less than $90. My only concern is how safe the lashes and the procedure are. I would hate to get an eye infection from this.

I must say that I was a little ahead of my time with the individual lashes. I first started wearing them in 1978 (does that really date me? In any event, with all the buzz about lash "extensions" these days, I decided to re-visit my Short Black Flare days, which I apply myself with a waterproof glue. I love them all over again, and they look so natural no one seems to take a double look! So, I say go for it. Why keep spending money on mascara that's suppose to give you full, lush sexy lashes? The models and actresses in the commercials are wearing false lashes or extensions- Don't be fooled. Not to mention they never you looking like you have racoon eyes!

I have really long eyelashes as it is, so I never thought about extensions. It seems like the kind of thing you should do if you don't have eyelashes or if they are really really fair/small. Otherwise, the cost of doing it could probably add up quickly.

My lashes are basically average, but I don't think I'd ever consider doing this. I feel like I already do a lot to keep up my appearances, and this is one more thing to add to the table. Plus, it seems like there's a lot of upkeep to maintain the look, and it's a little pricey for me right now.

When I first got my extensions done, there were two types I had to choose from: flares of 3-5 strands knotted together and individual lashes. I've tried the individual lash extensions which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE! It gave my eyes a very "natural" appearance of thick and full lashes. Definitely worth the money. However, these things take time to get used to. I wouldn't suggest putting on mascara with them (you shouldn't need to anyway) or use any oil-based product near them since it will cause the eyelash glue to break down (what they use to attach the lashes in the first place). Other than that---when your natural lashes fall out, so do the extensions. Really simple!

I have had lash extensions for almost 2 years. My first visit cost me $100, and for every touch up, (every 3 weeks), it cost me $30. I love the way it brightens up my eyes and make my eyes look so much bigger. I'd have to admit, the first time I had it on, it felt like little butterflies on my eyelids, but it took me a very short period of time to adjust to it. There's no pain having it put on because it's basically just attaching tiny bits of hair to your eyelash line with glue. I've gotten so many compliments since I've had then on, and everyone says it looks very natural. I love it and I will continue to have them done forever!

Lash extentions lasting 3 to 4 weeks for 90 dollars? How about no, I think that anything costing that much for eyelashes is absurd. I am an avid eyelash user and I find that every so often with the use of my falsies (which I lovee) I loose one or 2 lashes who's to say that for 90 dollars the same thing wouldn't happen? Which I feel would negate the reason for me to use them in the 1st place! Aughh lol I think the best way to go is using elf's wonderful lash kits for a more dramatic look and elf's individuals for a more controlled natural look. So kick the habit of spending hundreds of dollars on expensive lash extentions and say yes to ELFS LASHES!

Spend the extra $30 and get latisse or get glue on falsies, or a better mascara. extensions cost more over time anyways and risk your real eyelashes coming out in clumps an NOT growing back. I've been told I avoid eyelash extensions by many friends who have done it before.

I had them done by a top make-up person in West Hollywood and they looked wonderful. They felt a little heavy and that took some getting used to but it was great to get up, put on a little powder and lipstick and have my eyes look fabulous. When they began falling off/out, however, it began to look a little strange to have random long eyelashes. I went to local person (Chicago) who was not as skilled and it took twice as long for the refills - I'm talking like 3 hours. Be sure you go to someone with lots of experience - they'll stay on longer, look better and you won't get squirrely lying down for such a long time!

I've always wanted long luscious lashes, but I'm a little hesitant about getting extensions. Last time I saw my older sister she had some and they really made her green eyes POP! But, you could definitely tell they were artificial, which may not be so appropriate for everyday wear. Maybe if I could find a more natural installation I would consider it, but the price is still a little steep for me. So, for right now I'll just stick with my stumpy lashes and work my super awesome mascara overtime :)

In addition, for 3-4wks, I'm not sure if it would be work the $90 dollars considering the deal ELF gives for the self-applied ones...

That sounds like an interesting idea. I'd definitely give it a try, although I wonder what the application process is like. I know they do have eyelash growth creams, which sound awfully expensive and I'd be hestitant to give those a try without more research done to show their efficacy and their safety but this seems somewhat harmless. And it beats having to apply fake lashes everyday. I'd give it a try!

I am an esthetician and have seen eyelash extensions done and have also tried them myself. They are WAY overrated! And they are usually over $100 for the initial application and often $75 every TWO WEEKS for maintenance! And they fall out all the time. Not worth it! I say if someone has thin and frail lashes that they either use strip fake lashes or try using the new prescription product Latisee.

I've never done it, but I've thought about it. Unfortunately I barely have any lashes of my own, but for some reason, getting lash extensions makes me feel a little too fake. This might be something I'd want to do for a very special occasion, but I don't think I would want to feel so fake daily. I'd probably just stick to false glue on lashes even for special occasions.

But I also think it would be fun/cute to use fake lashes once in a while (not all the time) as long as the the fake lashes don't rip out any real ones. I think I'm going to have to try some from e.l.f.!

Lash extensions? I was lucky enough to be born with normal eye lashes, i guess you can say. So i've never really bothered with the fakes. But for people who want the fuller and thicker lashes, I can see them wanting this. Having only put on fake lashes only a few times, for stage productions, I don't really know the hassle of it too much; I can see the weariness of it though. I think for those who really do feel self-conscience about their lashes this is a great way to keep them feeling better. It does seem a bit pricey though, i don't know if i would want to be spending that much money on eyelashes. But if it's something that you really want, i'd say go for it!

I completely understand how you feel, maybe even more because I am older (almost 50). With age eyelashes, eyebrows even hair get thin!!! I no longer have the nice dark thick lashes I used to and I have also been thinking about getting lash extensions. I read about the new eyelash length/thickener Latisse but, it's a bit expensive for me. So, I am now trying a similar type of product but, I think it's more of a eyelash conditioner. I have 3 more weeks before I am supposed to notice the difference, it said, about 5 weeks and when I do, I will let you know. If this doesnt work for me I will be getting the lash extensions. So, I think you should get them because putting on the false lashes all the time can really get to be a pain and it takes a while to put them on correctly or they don't look natural. So, go for it!!! P.S. If you do please let us know how it goes, ok? Thanx...

I think it's a great idea for those who have short lashes or just want an extra little attention on their eyes..lol. I don't know if I would personally do it make if I had short lashes. I think the price is a little on the high end. I think it should be $30-45. Overall this is wonderful. Maybe its a good idea for cancer patients. I would say save $90 and by the lashes from elf=)

I just don't know about this?! It sounds wonderful, but $90 a pop, and then $45 every month. There are some great mascaras out there that can give you similar results- Loreal Beauty Tubes is similar. I wish elf would come up with a similar product!!!

This would be wonderful, but for that price I'm not sure. Being asian, with a monolid, it's be wonderful if my eyelashes were fuller. This is a great concept, but I don't think I would try it out myself. I'd just stick to the falsies.

I would love to get lash extensions b/c even though I have dark hair, I have such little eyelashes. There's no mascara on the market that could give me noticeably thicker or longer lashes, so I have to rely on falsies even though it's very obvious that I'm wearing fake lashes. I've seen some people with lash extensions, and not only does it look more natural than falsies, they look more awake and don't even need wear mascara. A more affordable alternative is getting your eyelashes curled via permanents. There are places in the US that actually curls your eyelashes the same way you curl your hair at the salon (tiny curlers), so there is no need to use the eyelash curler. My friend got it done in Georgia and she never has to mascara.

I have it and I LOVE it! My eyes really pop out and no mascara can rival the effect. My make-up routine is considerably shorter, too. Tips: if you know someone who has gotten eyelash extensions, do ask whether they were happy or not. No two technicians are alike and this translates onto their lash job. When badly done, it's uncomfortable, can be itchy and tends to unglue itself quickly.

I contemplated having lashes put on for my son's wedding but never did. The cost I found was $150 initially and then about $50 every 4 weeks for maintenance.(Might have been $90...can't remember.) My lashes are blond and thin and I wear contacts, so I hate to wear mascara. Always gets in my eyes! I do have my eyelashes dyed...that helps. Any suggestions for me?

This is a great idea and for some people, something they'd do in a New York minute. However, in times like this, I feel that it's money poorly spent. If it could be done for $90.00 and only needed freshening up every 6 months, that would be one thing but every 3 weeks in beyond MY means. Even if it wasn't, it's an extravagance I wouldn't share.

I think that 90$ is way too expensive to eye lashes. Only because I know people that get them done and they do not hold that strongly. They are always falling off or pointing out in wierd directions. I also like my eye lashes to be very thick and long and i haven't seen anyone with the individual glued-on ones that look this way. BUT if there ever were some that WERE thick, long and stayed on for longer than a week or 2, I would pay more.

I had my first application done about four months ago and I love it. I go every two to three weeks to have fill-ins. They are so natural and no one can tell that they are not mine unless I let them in on the secret. I live in Cleveland, Ohio and there is only one location that does it in Northeastern Ohio. They are much better than getting the temporary lashes that are only meant to last a day or two and you figure for the amount of money you waste on those you are really spending the same amount of money. I recommend them to all ladies looking for a more natural beautifying look.

I have been doing lash extensions for a little over a year now. One thing I love is that they look completely natural like you were born with unbelievable lashes. I have only had them last past 3 weeks once or twice but that varies from person depending on your individual lash growth, how well you take care of them, and of course, the product and person putting them on. $90 is a REALLY LOW PRICE! If you can truly ding them for that low, grab it. The average price around here is about $250 and the number of lashes is limited. Here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I pay about $150 and that's for unlimited lashes and a very good price compared with other salons. Fills average $50. It can be a bit a bit pricey but other than hilights every 8-10 weeks, I don't splurge on manicures, pedicures or other personal luxuries. If you live in the area I'd be happy to give you the name of my girl. Likewise, if you live in the DFW area and have a salon with cheaper extensions, pass on the info.

It seems like a great idea for someone who constantly wear false lashes. It takes away from the hassle of putting them on yourself. There are salons that offer permanent lashes that last about 3 months...is that similar?? I think I'll try the ELF lashes first, then go from there.

But if they started to thin, I don't think this is something I would look into. I would stick with false lashes. Seems a little odd. But...ask me in 30 years, and I might say something differnet lol.

With today's economy being in such a rut, I personally think that lash extensions are a waste of money. I would not try it, not even if I had a lot of disposable money, simply because of the fact that they fall off, might cause eye irritation, and also because there are so many good mascaras out there that will do the same for my lashes.

Though having thick lashes would be WONDERFUL, I would probably not go for this new trend. Some are born with naturally thick lashes and some aren't so lucky. But since I don't have thick lashes, I kind of consider them a "glamorous" addition to everyday make-up. I would much prefer to buy the awesomely priced E.L.F false lashes and apply them when I need them to look extra special.

It's $150 for a 2 1/3 month supply... wouldn't these be way better than falsies that will eventually fall off? Just my opinion... I would rather have natural full lashes then falsies and worry about having a few missing etc.... I love my e.l.f. Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara its amazing!!!!!

**** THIS IS BETTER THAN MASCARA AND BETTER THAN EXTENSIONS***** Get an eyelash perm. AND tint. It's like using a really great eyelash curler and the curl lasts for about a month or more. Use the black tint (not just for blondes) and it looks like you have naturally fabulous eyelashes. You can go swimming without worrying about makeup. Your lashes stay beautiful. Lots of places tint eyelashes but it's hard to find many that perm. I found a place that does permanent makeup and it is $60 where I go. If you want great lashes this is at least worth trying. I love it. And if you want to add a little thickness you can use mascara but much less so it looks more natural.

I have had lash extensions before. The initial application was $200 and "fills" are about $45, which I had monthly. I loved them! Why did I quit? I had a reaction to the glue the third time I had them filled and gave my eyes a reast. I understand that there is now a hypo-allergenic adhesive. I plan on getting them again in the Fall for my wedding. I loved not wearing mascara and looking decent when I first rolled out of bed in the morning. Do your homework and get them applied by a reputable professional.

I'm not sure if I will wanna pay $90 for eye lash extensions. Right now, there are so many lash enhancing products that work so well. For eg, I'm using Latisse right now and I pay about 80usd for a bottle that will last me approx 2.5months. The issue I have with lash extensions is that I'm afraid my real lashes will fall out as well. Will they?

I would never have extensions because it pulls out your own eyelashes. There are too many new things on the market today that are permanent. Latisse, the FDA approved version of Lumigan which are eyedrops for glaucoma made my eyelashes so long people think I'm wearing false eyelashes. It's great. Now that its approved all you need is a prescription for it.

My roommate had eyelash extensions put on about 1 1/2 months ago, and after witnessing her experience with them (for the price of $55) I would NEVER get them done. They looked great for the first week or so, but after 2 weeks maximum, she needed to go in and get a fill, which would have cost her about $25. After you get a fill, they estimate it lasting 2 more weeks, and then you get a brand new set, full price again. As you can see, this would have gotten pretty pricey for her, and so she neglected to get a new set, and they told her the eyelashes would just "fall off". Well, they did fall off, taking with them her own natural eyelashes. Now, a couple weeks later, her own eyelashes are finally starting to grow back, but for the past two weeks she has been super self conscious about her "bald" eyes. Fake eyelashes are too expensive to maintain and hard on your natural eyelashes, sortof like acrylic nails... but thats a whole new can of worms!! :)

I love the eye lash extensions. As a matter of fact I get the natural short mixed with medium length. It looks really natural. The application technique by my makeup artist is to place them under my lashes and not on top. I have had them on from 3 to 4 weeks. I enjoy waking up with no need to apply mascara or eye liner (unless I want them on the bottom lashes). The compliments have been many..but more importantly at 53 years of age, I think of it as a personal enhancement that is relatively cheap.

I have always wanted to get it done to see what it was like, and had it done. I'm glad I got the experience to tell you that I would never get it done again. They fall off unevenly so you may have one eye that has none while the other has still some on it. The person who puts on your extensions will choose your longest lashes to glue the falsies on and on a few a time, so when the glue starts to lose its grip a little, it takes your natural lashes with it and you are left with sparse lashes. The only way to keep your lashes looking full is to continually get them put on every week. I was told it lasts up to two weeks, but by the end of the one week, I had four left and on only one of the eyes. It's a huge waste of resources that I have chosen to use elsewhere.

I have tried this before, the lashes are beautiful. However this can be very expensive if you attempt to keep them as fresh as the first application. In Arlington Texas, the initial application is $100 and $50 for re-application. Instead, I invested in ELF natural looking lashes; cut them in half and apply from the middle to the end...BEAUTIFUL EYES for $1.00 and a steady hand.

These were around in the 60's and 70's where I came from and I had them forever. They were nice,looked good and convenient; but whenever each individual lash went askew or the glue loosened some, you have the problem of either getting it immediately re-glued or pull off the loosened eyelash. When you do that, you pull your own eyelash too. Lost quite a few lashes that way myself and some don't grow back either! You can't pay me to do that again!
