I am just wondering what everyone take is on eyelash extensions,
what brands you like and where you go?

I've heard that getting fur lash extensions is popular among celebrities, but I'm guessing that comes at a cost! Jennifer Lopez once got fur lash extensions....I don't like the idea of a dead animal on my eyelids but I must admit her lashes did look good!

If you're planning to get them done professionally, your eyes will sting from the glue and once they fall out most of your natural lashes will fall with them.. I've had them done twice, they look really good but I'm not sure it's worth the consequence

My take is don't do it. You pay so much money when three quarters of the time you can barely see a notable change. Mascara is a much better option. Otherwise use glue on fake eyelashes, but use the singles. Napoleon Perdis has good quality ones.

There's a brand called extreme which are really bad. Go for silk or hair extensions. The only problem I had with the extensions was not being able to rub my eyes. When I hopped out of the shower I had to remember to dab them instead of rubbing them. Once your lashes grow out and naturally drop off, the extensions will thin out and sometimes you may have a few long ones left which can look a bit funny. I remember it's about 100 for the initial lot, and then 70 every two weeks. I have had them twice, the first time it was natural or silk lashes and they were amazing, lasted over a month, endless compliments, the next lot I had were Extreme, and they were the worst as they were stiff, and fell off after a few days.

I must admit I like using the mascara & mascara fibre, it certainly gives the look I want without irritating my eyes. It lasts 24 hrs. Mirenesse new one is really good.
I just would not be able to afford new eyelash refill & my nails every 2 or 3 weeks as well. I think my nails are more important than my eyelashes

I've used modelco (with the fibres and then the mascara). A few brands on the market now are similar to the Modelco concept.

I've also had mine professionally done at a salon twice - both times looking completely different.

I totally love the look of eyelash extensions. They look great and aren't verry expensive. I go to hair and beauty and get mine done and they last for about a month. They are great i deffinately reccomend to go there

I like the convenience of having eyelash extensions i.e. waking up in the morning feeling like I'm a little bit done up without having to do anything. They are good but I find that i fiddle around with them a bit too much and they tend to come out. Also, the longer you get, the faster they tend to go 'criss-crossed' and they can weigh down your natural eyelashes and potentially cause damage, especially if they aren't applied correctly by a trained professional. My mum does mine and she uses Graft-a-Lash which is a very natural looking lash and doesn't weigh your eyelashes down to much.

Personally, I think they are a waste of time...
I have had them done 3 times. The first I got done at Miss Fox in Melbourne. They were great but eventually, my eyes got irritated by having something foreign on them 24/7. The second time was a place in Moonee Ponds which were horrible. Looked ridiculous, and had ALL fallen off within a matter of hours! It goes to show it really does matter where you go and who does it.
I think that a good pair of strip lashes on special occasions is the way to go. You can take them off, cleanse your eye properly and give them a rest.

i too have the brush on lash extensions. i do prefer the more permanent solution done by a beautician - takes about 1 hour and cost $70 (spreets voucher etc). Make sure you are not getting a trainee to do it (this can take up to 3 hours! and I had eye irritation after the first attempt) bad. The more permanent lashes last up to 6 weeks so are great for a special occasion, you can also get refills inbetween if a few have fallen out.

I got mine done and was told they don't harm your own eyelashes, but I did manage to pull one of my eyelashes out when trying to remove one. This is because the fake ones started falling out about two weeks later (but not all at once). It looked weird because some of my lashes were longer than others (ie the fake ones vs my own).

You are supposed to get infils about evey two weeks to maintain them.

Love Alpha Fibre Lash Extension Mascara is awesome! I got mine on ebay the price range is around $10-$20. You get 2 mascaras - one is the Transplanting Gel the other is the Natural Fibre. It is so easy to apply. I tried alot of do-it-yourself home false eyelash kits. I'm not so good at applying make up & would end up gluing my eyelashes together or ripping them out - it was a mess. Love Alpha Fibre Lash Extension Mascara is really easy to apply. You use it as you would a normal mascara. You get amazing visible results immediately. It is long-lasting & very effective. I can say it is the best cosmetic purchase I have ever made.
