At this point I don't even bother apologizing for my hiatus. It's going to be this way forever, readers.
I blog when I feel like it.
Unfortunately, today was not quite the day, but this experience had traumatized my Saturday so bad, that I feel like I need to spread the word right here right now.
This is going to be a lazy post and quite a rant-y one.
When I was in high school, I had enough sleep and time to care about my lashes. Uni life is not quite the same. Lash extensions has always been an interest of mine, but *I think* there's no lash extension salon anywhere nearby, and I'm in severe need of waking up to beautiful lashes.
|As you can see, I don't even bother arranging the messed-by-superglue-lashes back in place|
You get two tiny glass bottles and a pair of pointy-tipped tweezers. The tweezers are quite of a good quality, although you can do nothing but pick up lashes with it.
I did my research, how to take care of lash extensions, etc. I also watched a video on how to do it.
Read the very minimalist instruction at the back.
|Pretty easy right? Seems idiot-proof right? Right? WRONG|
1. It's super difficult to apply. No, I don't have shaky hands. In fact, I could draw a perfect winged eyeliner while I'm walking. You get the idea. But this kit needs a freaking heart surgeon's hand to apply. Why? Because..
2. The glue never dries when the lash piece is on your eyes, but dries immediately once you wait an extra second. So what happens was I keep flicking the lashes off my eye, and making extra blobs of glue on my lash line. Not fun, looks like I have dandruff on my lashes. And when I want to remove those extra glue, it literally became superglue, there's no removing it once it's stuck. And the fumes stings like a beyotch. But it's supposed to be a good thing right? So the lashes could last forever? Well..
3. The remover is a useless, oily substance that does nothing to melt the glue, and stings your eye even worse. It smells like acetone, and did I mention it STINGS?! My eyes are so red and puffy right now, I can't even...
So after a lot of struggle, I managed to put on each eye 3 of the short, and 4 of the medium (the long are so ridiculously long, I don't even bother) with blobs of glue here and there. Tried to remove the extra blobs of glue, stinged my eye real bad, glue didn't came off but several cluster of lashes did.
Tried to remove the whole thing, some lash stuck on so bad, it ripped a few of my lashes in the process. Again, the LashFree is practically useless.
Retried, got a decent set, happy. Snapchatted my friend that I just did an awesome DIY lash extension. It actually looks pretty natural, but nowhere as pretty as single lash extensions.

Managed to get everything off, and with red puffy eyes typing this review.
Gals, love your mascara. Use individual lashes with normal lash glue, or go to a trusted lash extension place. I wasted 150k and had puffy red eyes so you don't have to. Turns out, bad reviews are everywhere, I just didn't notice because I was too excited.
You have been warned.
