Here's the new extension. Looks very soft and fluttery
The extension is single-strand extension with a single, individual lash attached to my natural lashes instead of bunches of them attached to one lash like the one I was used to before. And this is soft and individual and I can brush through it (I thought it looked like spiders initially and had a shock when I look into the mirror). Previously, mine was done all interwoven into a thick singular strip to give a very thick dramatic look and it used to look like this:
The old extension, looking really thick and dark and totally barbie doll like!
Such big difference right?! Like I said, my initial reaction was "Oh no, I haven't got real lash extension" and I kinda missed my thick barbie doll lashes. Then after looking at the mirror for 3947347349439 times, and after having my makeup removed (and strangely still look fine), I'm actually starting to like the new "natural" look cos it looks like my real lashes and now instead of looking plastic fantastic, I look like I have mascara permanently painted on. I still can't decide which one I prefer more to be honest but let's see how this new set of extension holds up cos they look so much more flimsy than their predecessor! And men being men, BB said he actually couldn't tell the difference and if I hadn't told him I had my lashes done, he wouldn't be able to tell. Lousy!!! Such major difference as seen above and he said there's no difference! Well, at least that kinda confirms he's straight and hasn't got a single "gay bone" in him...but right now, I'm still trying to decide which set of lash extension I prefer! I'll update on how this new one holds! Hope they don't fall off that easily.....
