Eyelash Extensions: Yay or Nay?

Friday, June 8, 2018

Hi friends! Happy Friday! This week has been a busy one, but I am excited for a weekend with my boys and our friends!

Today I want to talk about eyelash extensions. In all the picture above I am wearing no eye makeup!

A few months back I got eyelash extensions in preparation for our trip to Maui. I love having eyelash extensions because it cuts back on the time it takes to get ready. Plus, on vacation I hardly wear any makeup, so at least my eyes look awake!

The initial appointment to get the eyelashes out on takes almost two hours. Y'ALL, TWO HOURS. I am not an A.D.D. person, but I was so fidgety. And, this wasn't even my first time getting them! Then, you have to go back and get them filled every 2-3 weeks. I went back and got them filled right before we left for Maui and, Y'ALL, that took well over an hour! Like, I just don't have time for that! 

Most moms would say, "Enjoy the time to relax," but all I kept thinking was how much time I was losing away from Graham and how many other things I could be doing. And, if I am being honest, if every other week I get two hours of free time, that is not what I want to be doing.

Now, I am saying this from my personal experience. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE eyelash extensions! Please don't misunderstand me. But, I just had to stop going because I couldn't sit still that long and I felt like it was a waste of time. I can put my makeup on in less than 10 minutes, so it wasn't really saving me a whole lot of time.

Fast forward to when they started falling out and, holy cow, I was left with no eyelashes. Everyday (weeks after I got them filled) I would have tons of fake eyelashes fall off and take with them a real eyelash. It was so sad when they all fell off because I used to have great, real eyelashes and I feel like I am left with nothing.

So, all-in-all, I don't hate them, but I don't think I will get them again anytime soon. I can't sit still for that long and I can't handle being left with no eyelashes.

What's is your experience with eyelash extensions?! Do you love them?

Also, does anyone with contacts recommend a great eyelash serum? I have tried a few different kinds, but they irritate my eyes really bad!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Have you tried a lash lift & tint? It's not as dramatic as extensions but I love the results! I do have extremely straight lashes, though.

    1. No, I haven't! I may do that once my eyelashes recover from having extensions!!

  2. This is so good to know going to Vegas in a week and was planning to get them but I don't have that kind of time for upkeep.

    1. They are so much upkeep! I would recommend finding a good false eyelash to just put on when you want!

  3. I like to have long eyelashes, which look cuter and make our eyes shine, but I haven't found a good way. I'll try your way.

  5. Nice Post!
    many women are deciding to have permanent makeup. These treatments will obviously save your time filling those brows, set the makeup, and finish the full routine within the specific time to reach the office. With this makeup treatment, it will save all your time to draw liners as all things are already done whenever you open your eyes.
