Anyone get these? I have been thinking a lot about it recently as my eyelids are getting really droopy as I age (just turned 47) and I thought it might "open my eyes" a bit.
Worried about the upkeep etc...

I have never tried them. They can look nice when done correctly, but some people go way overboard.

I am sceptical about how to put them on - glue? Glue around the eyes? hmmmmm.

I have them. I posted in a different thread about it, but I have been really happy with them. I asked for a natural length. Had them done once and then get them filled in every 2-3 weeks. I never use eye makeup anymore unless I'm going out at night or getting pictures taken. And no more mascara except for a touch on my lower lashes when I do my eyes.

There are some little things you need to be aware of though. They feel fake if you touch them (not soft like your own lashes) and that can be odd to get used to. I need to comb them every day (with a clean mascara wand) and I use baby shampoo in the shower to clean them. Sometimes they start to twist while growing out and if brushing them doesn't help, I have to pluck one here or there. It also took about 2 hours the first time to glue them on and you need to keep your eyes closed the whole time...about an hour for fills. Restful for me (I have 3 kids and 3 dogs! it's nice to get away), but could be irritating for some.

Thanks for updating. Do you think they make your eyes look more youthful?

My sister already had long, curly eyelashes but she decided to get the eyelash extensions. Turns out she was allergic to the adhesive and not only did her eyes get swollen her natural eyelashes fell out. So just make sure you are not allergic.

I have seen some really bad ones. My friend has them and they look like my false eyelashes used to in the 70's when I'd get drunk and sleep on them.

But as far as "opening your eyes up", I think they'll do the opposite because of the overhang and shadow from the lashes.

Investigate derma rolling as well for this.

I never got them because of the horror stories I heard from people who do have them such as it pulls out their natural lashes.

I just glue on lashes every day and I love them.

I would never, never do this. Not only is it expensive, I have read many horror stories about it. People, this is your EYES! They are applying permanent glue there! It does destroy whatever lashes you do have, and has been posted, some people suffer terrible allergies. Stick to mascara or falsies. And I agree it will not "open your eyes" probably have the opposite effect.
