Ladies, listen up- The time has come and it is time to face reality and get a lift. That time is summer and the lift is a lash lift! Lift and tint to be exact.
As a tired mom sometimes the only thing that can make us feel half human and sort of pretty when we have only had 3 hours of sleep is a little mascara. Am I right ladies? But if you are like me and have super sensitive eyes or an obsession with picking your eyelashes then eye mascara or lash extensions may not be your best option. This is where the lash lift and tint come in. It is your tired ass momma secret weapon.
I heard about the up and coming craze and didn’t think much about it well because I didn’t have time and eyelash extensions scare me. That is how naive I was, I assumed it was another name for them. But they are completely different! Don’t get me wrong they look great too but they don’t work for all ladies. But a few weeks ago a girlfriend called me up and asked if I would be her friends model for the course. Cost Free. Where do i sign up! Sold.
So I went but didn’t really have any expectations at all because to be quite honest I didn’t know what the hell a lash lift and tint was. But by the end, I was so fricken impressed and happy with the results that this will be my new love yo self thang!
The process took about an hour in total. It started off with the lift which essentially is curling your eyelashes with lifting solution. Eyelash perming used to be a thing years ago but they used a rod and that it not the case with the new and improved lift method. Instead, they use a silicon pad that goes on your eyelids. Much more comfortable.
Here is a rundown on the procedure. There were 4 steps in the process and you should prepare yourself to keep your eyes closed for around 45 minutes, which I am sure most moms would have no objections to. The first step was the adhering to the eyelashes to the silicon pad and applying the lifting solution.Then it had to sit for 10 minutes. Step 2 was the neutralizing solution. Daydream for 10 more minutes. Step 3 apply the tint. I chose a natural black. Nap 10 minutes. Step 4 to finish it off a final conditioning serum was applied and sat for 5 minutes. I was scared it would hurt when she pulled the pad off or that it may rip my eyelashes out but neither of my fears came true.
When I got the first look at my new and improved but natural eyelashes I was so surprised. It looked like I was wearing mascara! AMAZING! I am so in love. I haven’t worn mascara in 3 weeks and do not miss it. I will still wear it on occasion if I am going out on the town but day to day I no longer have to worry. It makes me feel like less of a slummy mummy which is a total win for me. It lasts for 4-6 weeks and there is no maintenance at all.
Now I am going to go hit the pool and I will finally be the girl that doesn’t have mascara running down her face.
The lash lift and tint combo costs $70 (this may differ depending on the tech)
