Some of you may remember a couple of years ago, I decided to do eyelash extensions. I have plenty of eyelashes, they’re long enough and thick enough, but they are blond and fine. If I don’t throw on some kind of liner or mascara, I have no eyes.
That first round of extensions took 2 1/2 hours to put on, and they started coming out in a week, heavily on one side that I slept on. Given the cost and having to refill every three weeks with lashes coming out quite a lot in between, it got crossed off of things I wanted to maintain.
Until now. I tried again with someone else, someone that does almost exclusively lashes, and that’s it. The first time I had them done by someone who did fine, but it was just an extra service they did. It makes all the difference. Mandy put on my lashes in an hour, I’ve had them a week, and I haven’t noticed any lashes coming out, they look as good today as they did a week ago. This is what I wanted. I wake up every morning with my eyes on. I just run an eyelash comb through them to separate, and I can go out the door and do nothing else to my face and get through the day.
The cost is still a big drawback. $250 for the initial install and then $70 every three weeks or so for maintenance. Worth it? This time, yeah, with this aesthetician. It makes all the difference. So if you’ve tried them before with someone who didn’t do pretty much exclusively lashes and weren’t that happy, you might try again. She was more expensive for the initial application, but to be this happy with the results makes it completely worth it.
I have my Tauer Orange Star sample! It’s been a training week at my real job, so I’ve had zero time to spend time with it, but it’s definitely Tauer richness, interesting. Because I haven’t had enough time to do more than just sniff at it and go ah, yum! I’m not going to review it until I can. Also, I didn’t choose a winner yet for the Orange Star bottle courtesy of Andy and Luckyscent because we’re still getting comments on that post, but I will pick the winner via random number draw next Tuesday!
