What we say:
I’ve had false lashes applied once before, but they were very long and they looked extremely fake. I therefore removed them after about two days cause they were annoying me. When I was offered the chance of having the Luscious Lashes applied I was excited and went with it. I have now had them on for nearly two months and I am totally hooked. They are so natural and easy to wear. It took about an hour to apply and about half an hour for my fill. I lay on the bed while Lindsey attached the lashes to my own lashes; it was so relaxing as I never felt her apply them. With the lashes on I don’t even feel them, as they are so natural. I have the 9mm on which is the shortest length you get. The great thing about these lashes is that I don’t have to bother about applying or removing mascara. My morning routine is so much quicker thanks to these lashes.

I have always been too scared of false eyelashes, as I’m a contact lens wearer and my eyes are extremely sensitive. However, when the opportunity came along I couldn’t resist, especially after the ladies at Ageless Faces assured me that it’s 100% safe for lens wearers. The procedure took about an hour and I was pretty close to drifting off – it wasn’t uncomfortable at all, and the only thing I felt was a slight tickle every now and then. My therapist Lindsey applied each lash to my individual eyelashes, and when she had finished, I was amazed by the results. My lashes looked long and full and I have been getting compliments ever since I had them done! It’s been about four weeks now and although some have fallen out, I am pleased to say that they are still visible! I am amazed by their longevity and by how comfortable they are – I barely feel them. I would highly recommend the procedure to anyone whose eyelashes need a bit of va-va-voom!
