Eyelash Extensions: Cluster Lashes

By SugarPlumPosts - 19:39

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a local salon, and got some cluster lashes. I have always wanted to try the individual lash extensions, but these are a little more pricey, and so I thought I would try out cluster lashes first.

Never again...

The process took around 20 mins and cost only £10. The therapist told me that some people can make these last for up to two weeks, in what world?! The application was fine; she applied the cluster lashes, and after each was was applied, I was told to open my eyes, to stop it from sticking to the bottom of my eyelid. The glue fumes did sting my eyes a bit and made them water, but the therapist reassured me this was normal.

They looked ok.... not amazing. The same as if I had applied them myself, except they were stuck like super glue.

'Be careful when showering, as the steam can loosen the lashes!' Yup...Wise words. As soon as I got home, I jumped in the shower, begging the steam would loosen them away. It didn't. Instead I used a pair of tweezers, and pulled out the ones closest to my inner corner. Not my best idea. I did end up ripping a few of my natural lashes out, but not enough to make me worry.

After I had ripped out the ones near my inner corner...

This made them slightly more bearable. I just found them so irritating! Every time I blinked I could feel them. The rest lasted around a week, with me filling in my other lashes with a bit of mascara to hide the gaps...  

After the week had past I desperately wanted them all off, so with a bit of research, I found that leaving your head over a bowl of boiling water, loosened them. Then used a bit of olive oil to remove the rest. Ahhhhhhhh relief!

After this episode, even though I think the individual lashes would be better, it is a definite no no for me!
