I bought this voucher because I heard from my sister in law that her officemates are fans of eyelash extensions! When I saw this deal on Ensogo, I immediately purchased for myself and for my sis in law!
We haven’t thought yet when to try it out when my MIL talked us into availing it ASAP since my daughter’s party is coming up. A day later! A Sunday. I panickedly called up branches nearest our location, one of which is the Greenhills Branch, only to be told that they are not included in the promo. We have no choice but to go at the last minute in their Retiro Branch. Without reservations at all!
Good thing the branch was still open, and they accepted us. I think they were about to close already. We were the last 2 clients!
My sis in law went first, so I saw the whole procedure done. The specialist will ask you how long you want your lashes to be. They have 3 sizes. After choosing, you will be asked to lie down. Masking tape will be put under yourlower eyelids. The specialist had a box of lashes, black dye / ink working as the glue and a stick like tool for easy handling.
Eyes are closed while the procedure is being done. It doesn’t hurt at all. You can even sleep!
After glueing the lashes on, your face will face the electric fan! To dry out the glue I suppose!
The whole procedure was an hour, making you really sleepy. But you cannot sleep because you want to see the results already! Talk about being excited! Haha!
After the procedure, when you look in the mirror, you can really see the difference! Too bad I wasn’t able to take a before and after picture! I love the lashes till it fell one by one! It looked natural! I got so many compliments when I had the lashes on! I am thinking of having it done again! Soon I hope!
Now, let’s talk about the downside, you cannot wet the lashes as often as you would want to. The lifetime of the lashes depends on the glue. If it gets wet often, tendency is it will be washed away! For example, if the right eye gets wet often than the left eye, the result will be, right eye has thinner or no lash extensions and left eye has thicker or more lash extensions!
Also, the lashes are a little stiff, when it touches your skin, it feels you really have something in your eyes.
Oh well, with beauty comes sacrifice!
5 out of 5 stars – for the reason that I got super duper many compliments!
