    But the glue for the professional ones didn't?! You have totally convinced me! I wasn't even thinking about this & now I am doing it for sure.
    I just found a place by my house that offers them for $25. Though that cheap of a price makes me a bit concerned - is it too cheap?

      Hahaha, Jules, look what you started! I am making calls to get them in the next 2 weeks or so for a wedding we have on the 23rd. I want to test them out for my wedding, cuz I have lashes like snuffaluffagus, they come straight down. but they aren't long or black. They are practically blonde and average length, so they suck. I can't wait to get it done. Yay for Julie starting a new beauty trend!

          No, the glue they used did not come off, I still have them on and I got them done exactly 3 weeks ago today. I swam a lot, showered a lot and put lotion on my face a lot. I also put on and took off a lot of make up and used eyecream everyday. So, they stay put.

          $25 does sound kinda cheap, but maybe they just want to make the price cheap so that people will try it out, its kind of a crazy thing and if you don't hear about it from someone else, you might never try it. So, they want people to try it and love it and spread the word, then raise the price. This is just my guess though. lol Maybe go in for a conslutation first and see what the place looks like and if you can get some before and after pics from them.

          I really did not start the trend, I read about it in a magazine, lol. I am the first BDW bride to do it I think, but that is all. I really think everyone should do it though, I like them that much.

              The cool thing is if you like them, then you just go back to have them fixed, like when some fall out, and that is pretty cheap, my place charges $3 per lash section that needs to be replaced. So the cost might be a lot at first, but its pretty cheap to maintain them.

              1 thing I wanted to tell you all is the first few days were odd, sleeping on them and putting on sunglasses and stuff like that, but then you get used to them. They are also kinda stiff when you first get them, but after a few days they soften and look more natural.

                Hmm this is an interesting idea. I always use fake eyelashes if I have any event to dress up for. The really cheap $8 kind. Most people don't realize they are fake either.

                For Halloween I wore some ridiculous long ones and people kept asking if they were real. I should post a pic of them because it was so obvious they were fake. I was like Dang, if I can pull these ones off then they won't notice on the softer, more life like ones.

                However I do like the idea of getting some that would last the whole vacation- not just a day.

                Does it do any harm to your natural lashes? LIke when they come off, do you lose some of your natural ones? I'd hate to be bald after that. lol

                  No, they do not harm your real lashes, that was my first question. You can go and get them removed when you are done with them and they use some glue remover that does not harm your lashes and if they fall out on their own they also do not harm your lashes, the glue just comes loose. I can tell you for sure after, but I know in the spots where I did lose them already, my lashes look fine.

                      I can't wait till we see your close up pics. $60 is a bargain, especially for the lashes that they stick on 1 by 1! There's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to do this for my wedding too! Then again, I perm my lashes if I want to feel extra perrty.
