Ok I am just noticing this now on this thread and only signed on here after 3 weeks. I know I am horrible.
Anyway my experience on the eye lash extensions:
BEST THING EVER!!!
Seriously if I can afford to have this done all the time, I would. And if it didn't do long term damage to your real lashes. But that said if I ever am going to any big event, or an all inclusive holiday or anything, I will be getting them again.
Mine seems to have lasted me quite a while too. I took really good care of them making sure as to not rub my eyes, getting them drenched in water..etc. The lady that actually did my fill after said that they were in the best shape she has ever seen them after 4 weeks. I am so glad I got the extensions. It was a little annoying getting them put on just because I am not used to sitting still and having my eyes closed for a couple hours without napping. Having someone play around with the eyes is something I couldn't get used to. She could totally tell how jittery I was. I felt bad for her...haha
Anyway girls, don't worry about lashes falling off. Do your research to find someone with good reviews. I didn't have any of my real lashes fall off at all. Everything was still in tact. Unless you are getting them done constantly all year round, then I don't think you would have anything to worry about.
DO IT!!!! DO IT!!! you won't regret it and will be so happy with the outcome that your phones camera will be full of selfies after you get them done. (not that I am speaking from experience...ahem...lol)
Good luck and let me know how you do with it.
oh and another thing is if they don't give you that already, get a little spooly brush. I brushed my lashes faithfully every night and morning. This helps them from tangling or looking not so tidy and just come out gently.
Also would recommend getting an eye mask thingy for sleeping in. Just in case you rub your lashes throughout the night. The best one to get is the raised sleep masks you can get at Winner's or Marshals. That's where I got mine.
