i'll wink to that

My girl friend and fellow blogger Miss Leilei has been raving about her recent foray into the world of eyelash extensions. After seeing her results, I knew I had to give it try. Longtime readers will know that I have a minor obsession with lashes and mascara. But now I don't have to worry about either!

I had Christine of Lady Lam do the ultimate glam lashes on me over the weekend. It took about an hour and a half and was completely relaxing.

I can't believe how long my lashes are (and surprisingly natural looking!) They're also unbelievably light. I forget that I have them on. I'm definitely doing this again before my wedding! I won't have to worry about mascara running down my face if for whatever reason I find that I'm not completely dead inside and start crying tears of happiness. Most likely that won't be the case because, you know... I'm dead inside.

Ugh. But when did I get all those freckles?? And please don't mind my nasty brows. I'm do for some threading.

i love it!! i'm always tempted to get the extensions but i'm so used to putting on my false lashes that it's like second nature to me.

my mom got them once and she said it was impossible to wash her face, she was so afraid of getting the lashes wet and they'd fall off. how is it for you?

Rhondalei: I think I dozed off briefly but I was mostly half awake. It did go by fast though.

Tiffany: The first 24 hours is when you need to be really careful because the glue isn't completely dry. After that, it's pretty much my normal routine. Christine suggested that I don't use any sort of oily makeup remover because that would dissovled the glue.

Next time I won't get the lashes as long. Right now they're super duper glam. I think I'll want them more natural later.

LRB - Use an OIL FREE make up remover. I use Neutrogena with good results. Also, you cannot use any oil based mascara. I ordered the Xtreme Lashes mascara online when I felt some areas were getting a lil bit sparse. ie right now that I'm trying to let my natural lash cycle fall the rest of the lashes. My lashes are of decent length to begin with and the added length was only bothersome when I wore my glasses. Glam it up baby!
