      Ok, here are the pics. Please don't mind how crappy they are and just look at only the lashes! I forgot to have my sis take the pic for me, so when I got out of the shower, I just took them myself. Oh, I also lost one while washing my face this morning. So that's not good, but we'll see how they hold up.

      Damn, pics where HUGE, I tried to resize, but it never seems to work, so let's see....

          They look great. You should not have lost one already though. I say call them and tell them and get them to fix it. That is not cool. Not that we can tell, but I you want them to be good since you paid for them.

          FYI you are not supposed to wear mascara at all, so I hope she is not wearing any :)

            Nope, no mascara or any makeup. I am hoping that i won't have to wear any at all, even for the wedding on Friday.

                Ok ladies. I have bad news. I haven't worn any makeup and I have been extremely gentle while washing and drying my face. I haven't even washed my eyes trying to be careful! BUT, almost every lash on my right side is gone. Ok, not every one, but about half. I have lost a few from my left.
                Day 1 - felt kinda cool, but also like a prostitute (they felt so obvious)
                Day 2 - wanted to rip them off
                Day 3 & 4 - they were comfortable and I thought they looked good
                Day 5 - cool, but I could see that some were lose when I looked real close
                Day 6 & 7 - dropping like flies

                I called last Wednesday to let them know that one fell out, I got voicemail and I left my work number and my cell number. No one called me back. You are supposed to get one refill for free, but I am not sure I want to bother refilling them. They are really annoying right now, half in and half out.

                Since they barely lasted 6 days, I don't think I would do this for Jamaica since I will be there 9. I am going to test out some other options though. Perhaps dyeing them or perming them. I am glad I did this and all, cuz I didn't wear makeup to the wedding, but honestly, I can apply them myself and get a day out of them as opposed to $80 and getting 5 days.

                I do sleep on my sides, but I tried to be extra careful. Oh well. I am glad I tried it, but I don't think I would do it again. Unless maybe I would try a different salon. Humpf.

                  That really sucks Carly. I must have had totally different ones because I was pretty rough on mine and they lasted a long time. Mine were called eye lash extensions, I wonder if that is different then what you got? Sorry you have such a bad experience I am glad you did them now though and not for your wedding.

                    Yeah, me too. And I really wouldn't say it was a bad experience. And these were called eyelash extensions as well, supposed to last 3 wks, but not this time! I am so glad I tried it though! I wouldn't be opposed to trying it at another salon, cuz I think they looked great, but they didn't last as they should have.

                      Carly - I never saw your last few posts about this. I actually was at a different salon today in the city - Salon 130 on Chestnut and they had a sign up about them. They are only $35 and supposedly last 2-4 weeks. I actually got a glue test for them today because I was considering getting them for the wedding. After seeing your post, I may not though. I'd hate to get them done and have them be half off by the day on my wedding. I guess I could try them now and then get them for the wedding if they worked. We'll see and I'll let you know if I do it!
