    I’ve done a lash lift/tint a few times and really liked it! Definitely more of a natural look than lash extensions, but it lasts 6-8 weeks and I didn’t feel as much of a need to wear eye makeup afterwards. I’ll definitely be investing in lash extensions for my wedding/honeymoon!

      Oh I didn’t realize a lift lasts that long! Maybe I’ll test that out next…

      Great post! Thanks for sharing that knowledge with us! I can’t use eyelash extension yet, so I take advantage of this time and improve my eyelashes. I loved Latisse, but it is very pricey. So I decided to purchase the generic version of Latisse which is the Careprost. So happy ❤️ I finally found ‘HOTLASH247’ in Google and got careprost (same as Latisse, but it’s a way cheaper, thanks girls ?). There is no difference to me. Latisse and Careprost are the same thing. I could never go back to my normal lashes now. I have had phenomenal results with it. It is well worth the money for me. After trying it, I will never be without it! My lashes are twice as long and thick and I am already being asked if they’re natural, to which I can happily respond ”Yes”!

    This is prob a stupid question, but did you stop wearing mascara? (I’m assuming that’s the main perk, but I could be wrong!)

      Yup, I kind of touch on that in the “Can you still wear eye makeup?” section – I personally didn’t feel the need to ever wear mascara on my top lashes while I had them. I barely even felt the need to wear eyeliner! I’m sure you could if you wanted to, but I think that would make them wear faster since you would need to clean the mascara off of them, which requires more washing/scrubbing. Does that make sense?

    After trying out extensions personally, I don’t think I would do it again, unless I had a really really special occasion (like getting married). I really liked how they looked, but the no touching your eye thing was hard, sleeping was hard, etc. I never removed them, I just let them fall off naturally and it did start to get weird when I felt like I needed to curl my real lashes but I couldn’t because of the fake lashes. I could not wait to wear mascara again!!! I am getting a lash lift and tint on Thursday (for my birthday and an upcoming wedding) and will report back. It seems more economical. Lauren, what did you think of the Thrive mascara?

      Ahh will you let me know what you think of a lash lift! I’m so curious about that! Also, I like the Thrive mascara so far!

    You look gorgeous! I’ve wanted to try these for a while, but I’ve always been scared of eye irritation! Maybe one day…

    Thank your for sharing the Q&A, helps me learn more!

    Great post! I thought it was awesome that you took so much time (and included pictures!) to walk us through your personal journey into the world of eyelash extensions. The pros and cons section was great and my favourite one was the acknowledgement of the financial commitment that lashes bring to the table. I think it’s easy to get caught up in the glamour they hold and forget that the continuous payments you make to keep them up can go towards saving for a large purchase – in your case a house : ) (which I’m also saving for so I totally get you!).
