Eyelash extensions make you look dolled up without the extra prep time, but they often require a bit of looking after. For example, you need to be mindful of them when you’re washing your face. A lash lift (or a lash perm), on the other hand, is pretty low maintenance as no extra lashes are used apart from your own. While a lash lift tends to look more natural, lash extensions can also be tailored to your preferred length and thickness, too.
Can’t decide which to go for? Lash Inc SG offers the best of both worlds, so you can speak to their beauty experts before choosing. This Tanjong Pagar salon specialises in lash and brow treatments including Yumi lash lift, eyelash extensions and eyebrow embroidery. I recently tried the classic eyelash extensions ($95) – read on for my review!
Lash extensions review
“Located along a stretch of shophouses in buzzy Tanjong Pagar, this beauty studio offers a range of brow and lash treatments, including microblading, ombre brow shading, and the all-time favourite Camellia lash extensions for a foxy and dramatic look. Pink walls and décor tastefully adorn the impeccably clean space, which also has a comfortable and spacious sitting area for those waiting in between their appointment. Even the washroom looks luxurious with its marble sink and concrete walls!
I do enjoy having eyelash extensions on, and I’ve always preferred the more natural-looking designs instead of thicker and longer options. Having extra lashes on does make a big difference in how my eyes look (bigger and lifted), but sometimes the extensions can feel heavy and uncomfortable.
Since I had no upcoming occasion to justify getting dramatic lashes, I decided to try the classic 1D eyelash extensions. This service involves individually adhering one faux lash to one natural eyelash, resulting in a ‘mascara effect’. Think of it as a natural-looking boost to your peepers! The entire process was painless and comfortable, and I couldn’t help but doze off in between.
Including the consultation, the whole process took almost 90 minutes, but it was worth it. The final look isn’t too dramatic, but the extra lashes definitely help to open up my eyes. Plus they’re incredibly light – I can barely feel them! My lash artist gave me a ‘Dolly’ eye look by applying longer lashes in the middle of my eyes. If you prefer a cat-eye effect, you can request for it instead.
The best part about this treatment is that it saves me precious time in the morning when I’m getting ready, since I get to skip the steps of curling my lashes and applying mascara. Anything that gets me extra bedtime is a huge win!”
