2 of my nieces have them and I've asked just a few questions. They love them. They do give the appearance of opening up their eyes but they said it gets pretty expensive keeping up with them.
On a slightly different note.. I used Latisse several years ago. It works great... really great (my doc told me it would work just as well every other day to make it last longer so that's what I did). However, it does have a warning of the possibility of changing blue eyes... I have blue eyes and it did change them. They were pretty vivid blue.. now they're a grayish, blah, blue. Other eye colors are not affected.

I think so. A really good eye cream makes a bigger difference there. They do for your eyes what a really great mascara would do really.

I just glue on lashes every day and I love them.
I've been wearing false lashes pretty much daily for several years now. My real lashes are shot...

And I agree it will not "open your eyes" probably have the opposite effect.
I thought thatís what we were talking about. So false eyelashes and eyelash extensions are two different things? Ok, well Iíve never tried either.

I was talking with a lady and hers looked so nice, I asked how long did they last and a bunch of other questions. She told me normally she tried to go back to get refills every two to three weeks, but hadn't been back in a month. I thought wow and they still look that great, plus she didn't pay a lot where she went to get them done. I said, to myself why not, I'll give it a try. I went to the saloon where she had them done and asked for the person she used. By day two after having them done I wanted them off, by day five or six, I oiled those suckers till they slid off.

I didn't have any allergic reaction, I just couldn't stand the feel of them and maintenance is worst than having to apply mascara everyday. I thought I was cute for about two days after that, for me it was not worth the look for another minute. But you know how time sometimes weakens the reserve and memory, I have a camping trip coming up and don't want to have to wake up and apply mascara in the morning and thought hey this would be a good time for some of those permanent lashes, but then I had a flashback, so, nah. I'll just bond with nature and be al-natural.

I love them. I’ve never had a problem with them. FWIW, the glue is applied to your lashes—not your eyes.

I started getting them a few months ago and I absolutely LOVE them! They look and feel totally natural. In fact, I went to a new eye doctor one day last week and he commented on them and said, "Wow! You have amazingly beautiful eyelashes!" I laughed and told him that they were extensions and he was very surprised.

You have to find someone who is meticulously oriented to detail and who uses the best product available. The woman I go to uses a product called Novalash. This is the only type I have any experience with.

https://novalash.com

You do have to go on a regular basis to keep them looking good. I go about every 3 weeks or so. You can get them in many different lengths depending on the look you are going for. I get a length that I think looks very natural - not too long, so they don't look fake.

As someone else mentioned, the glue does not get in your eyes, unless you maybe go to someone who doesn't know what they're doing. I have had no adverse reactions at all and my regular lashes have not been damaged by them in any way.

Yes, they can be a bit expensive - depending on your budget, etc.

I made an eyelash lifting bending after the procedure is also held until the eyelashes are updated. And Tint held at least 1-1.5 months! Cool, I think)
