My eyelash extensions and why I love and hate them.

A week ago, I had synthedic eyelashes put in, right between my real ones. I don't have long eyelashes due to a hair twirling disorder that I had while growing up. I'd pick at them and they fell all out. They took a really long time to grow back in and they haven't been the same since.


So, getting my eyelashes professionally done sounded really fun. And they looked great. I didn't even have to apply make up because my eyes popped and I absolutely loved that.


They stayed on for a good five days, then came the problems. The glue began hurting my eyes when I would shut my eyes, or laid a certain way on my pillow. So I tried getting those certain ones out (without pulling). But it didn't matter one bit... because once the lash came out, my REAL ones did right with it. It was awful and I lost a ton of my natural eyelashes... not to mention my eyes are severely irritated from it all.

So do yourself a favor if you happen to get these done... don't pick at them AT ALL like I did. If the glue bothers you at some point, call your beautician and have her deal with it. It's really not worth losing all of your eyelashes over like I did.

I feel like I need to get them again, even though I don't want to lose EVEN MORE eyelashes. But I barely have any there now. I'm kind of bumming over it and torn on what I should do. I was always a fan of pretty eye lashes.

Anyway, be careful my fellow beauty, style and make up bloggers. This happened to me and it happens to a lot of girls.

Definitely not worth losing your natural beauty over. That's for sure.


  1. Eugh that sounds like a horrible experience. If the glue started irritating me I know I'd start going at my eyelashes.
    That is such a pity that you lost so many of your own lashes. If it makes you feel any better they really did look AMAZING on you for the days you had them

  2. I recently stopped getting my eyelash extensions filled and was continuing to get them done for about a year! I LOVED THEM! I'm sorry you had a bad experience with them. :( It sounds like the person who did it for you didn't do it properly because the glue and eyelashes never bothered me at all. When they fell off, they grew back quite nicely! I only had to fill in my eyelashes every few weeks...even then, only less than half of my eyelashes came off.
    Maybe you should try a different place and give them another chance because in the picture above, they look great! :)

  3. They look great in your pics!! I was kinda curious as to what the process was like. I have never tried false eyelashes and was wanting to but I don't know if I wanna risk it now. :/

  9. Eyelash growth products is a good solution for immediate result, but be aware that no matter what type of extension you get they will thin out your natural eyelashes. Other thing to keep in mind is the maintenance and restriction of having eyelash extension.
