Sensual, thick, long lashes ? Yes with Chic Lashes eyelash extensions

I have to admit that, when the trend of wearing eyelash extensions started, I was intrigued. I thought it was a very expensive procedure that was not worth it. I mean I could get long, thick lashes with a good mascara at a lower price overall. I mean it was not a must for me. I could live very well without it. Well I was wrong. When I received the proposition to try it, I was curious to finally see what all the fuss was about! So in a grey, rainy, cold day of summer I made my way towards the centre where Chic Lashes' location was.
 I arrived at the required time and I was invited into a relaxing room with comfy armchairs and soothing music. My lash technician arrived and we went upstairs towards the room where the magic would take place. I was asked to fill in a form : I was asked if I had any allergies, or allergic reactions to certain substances, If I had any eye or skin problems. I think it is very important to know these things in case of potential problems.

I didn't, so we got to work. I was asked what effect I want my lashes to have - I wanted them to look natural but to be visible and a little bit out of the ordinary. The lash technician decided the number of extensions to be applied according to my eye shape and lash length or curving.
I was seated on a comfy bed and for the next two hours I would get my eyelash extensions. The procedure started with the covering of my lower lashes and the cleanse of the upper lashes. Then, with a lot of patience and calm, I was applied two extensions for each lash. The extensions are applied onto the natural lashes. A delicate and thorough procedure. It was quite relaxing for me to lay there and do nothing but enjoy the soothing music.

Of course I asked many questions for you my lovely readers - you need to know :
First of all, you should wear no eye make-up especially mascara on the day of the applicaton of the extensions.
The quality of the extensions and especially the glue is very important for the long-lasting effect of the extensions. You should gently detangle and comb the extensions with a spooly brush or an old mascara wand every day so they would look good all the time.
You should take off your eye make-up only with micellar water. No pulling and rubbing. Apply a soaked pad onto the eye, let it break up the make-up and gently swipe it over the eye, being extra careful on the lash area. NO oil based make-up removers! They would loosen the glue and shorten the life of your lash extensions. After putting on the extensions mascara is not required! Your lashes now look full, thick and sensual!
   
You should come back to redo your lashes in about 3 weeks (if you take good care of them they can last longer!). If you want them taken out, you need to come back to the salon where you put them on, they are quickly removed with a special solution.
And an advice from me : be careful not to sleep in a position that will harm the lashes!

And now let's see the effect of the eyelash extensions :

You can find out all about the Chic Lashes extensions and prices on their official site : chiclashes.ro . Here are the prices :
All in all, it was a very very beautiful experience for me! It takes quite a lot of time to put them on so beware if you are in a hurry and don't have much patience! I didn't feel any discomfort from wearing them. They do not weigh the natural lashes down. It is a little weird to wear them at the beginning but after you get used to them, it's ok!
   
I really like how my lashes look : they frame the eye very well and they bring the focus onto the eye area. I would wear some mascara onto the bottom lashes to balance the look of the lashes. If you want a better contrast with your eye colour you can ask to be put in several coloured eyelash extensions.
   
Is it worth it? Well it depends on you! Overall they are quite expensive to put on and maintain. But the look that they give cannot be replicated with any mascara. They are very suitable for any special occasion and it is clear that you will be the centre of attention everywhere you go! I love my eyelash extensions and it is certainly an experience to have! I'll leave you with an impromptu photo session I did to flaunt my new Chic Lashes extensions ! Lots of kisses ! M
