Beauty Review : Fake eyelashes vs Eyelash extensions

I have always been a fan of fake eyelashes because firstly, my natural eyelashes are almost non-existent, which is common for most Chinese. Secondly, with the correct skills and pair of fake eyelashes, I get instant double eyelids without having to tape them!

As for eyelash extensions, I have had horrible experience in the past. You can read it here andhere. That’s my old blog previously.

Some of you who have followed me till date from then would have already read my unfortunate experience with eyelash extensions, but new readers do not.

You may read the whole entry there but I would summarize neverthless for the benefit of the doubt of my new readers.

  • It was not the best decision I’ve made
  • I am extremely upset with Milly’s services and am still up to date because of the torture they put me through, physically and financially.

Here are the pictures.

Double eyelids on the 1st day, but as you can see, the lashes weren’t stick on properly!

These pictures do not do justice to the suffering I had.

Bottom-line is, I think the lady who did the eyelash extensions for me used too much glue and she had glue onto my eyelid as well. It was a very painful experience and I kept tearing. It was so bad that I removed them the next day, wasting my 55bucks! And the removal was a TORTURE as well!

What was worse was that I wasn’t proposed with any refunds at all. And silly me for not demanding for it!

So if you were to ask me which do I prefer? Definitely fake eyelashes I must say.

*This is based on my personal experience with this particular beautician in Millys (Ailing). I’m not too sure if she is still working there but I just thought that this is quite important and hence am sharing it.

Extracted from the blog post, seems like someone else has experienced the same torture as I did as well.

I went there before for promotion.. somewhere may last year. Same lady .. same burning sensation but less pain then yours.. most probably because less thing stuck on my eyelid ? Actually.. you could have complain to the lady in charge who will redo for u for free.. but she is at Far east shopping centre. she the one u should (I think there is a typo here, it should be “shouldn’t” instead of “should”) go for .. when doing eyelash extension.

 

So it’s up to you to decide.

Beauty Reviews – Double Eyelid Sticker Tapes in Black

Remember how I was so excited over the these sticker tapes in black? Yes! They have arrived and I’ve worn them out to try! A mixture of both good and bad actually… Read my previous post here!

I bought these few to try out and would get more if they prove to be value for money. My suggestion is to get the narrow type. The shaped ones are super out of the question because it’s just so freaking long to use for the width of the eyes, well, unless you’re telling me you have super wide eyes like this…

Which I then suggest you to well, better to stay home….

I know it doesn’t make much difference but to someone who has single eyelids, it does! It helps to ‘open up’ our eyes, looking more alert and well, IMO, more pleasing to the eyes.

Not sure about you, but even with this sticker tapes, I face the same problems when using those usual transparent ones. The stickiness is extremely poor, like if you accidentally stick onto your eyelids wrongly and want to remove and stick it on correctly again, the stickiness becomes compromised. And you’ll face problems trying to hold them up again.

Now, if you are facing the same problems as me, here’s a little tip for you. It works for me.

Using the glue for falsies, dab it a little onto the sticky side of the sticker tape and stick it onto your eyelids. Brain cells’ activation proved to be functioning well and came to a conclusion that since the glue for falsies is able to stick them on so well on your eyelids, it should do the same for sticker tapes too right? Brain, you have done me proud! And true enough, they do stick better! 🙂

For me, I’d prefer parallel eyelids over tapered ones! They look so much better, so even when I’m on falsies, I’d always try to achieve the ‘parallel eyelids’ look! 🙂

Sadly, I believe to the ‘Mono Eyelids’ Group 😦

Here’s another tip when using double eyelid sticker tapes.

If you wish to achieve a wider and deeper double eyelids, paste the tapes a little higher than what you usually paste. Perhaps try 1 to 1.5cm from your eyelids. It creates a deep-set eyelids which allures 😉 Especially useful if you want to achieve parallel eyelids! 😀

Yes, you would have to apply eyeliner to cover up those parts that aren’t black. You don’t want to go around looking weird and the double eyelid sticker tapes are meant to be concealed. The trick is not to allow anyone to notice them.

I’m using the K-Palette eyeliner BUT I’m advising you to get my Holy Grail – Bourjois Ultra Black eyeliner. Both are liquid eyeliners of course. I bought the former because I was in need of an eyeliner previously and couldn’t get hold of the Bourjois one, which I have been using for a long time.

After applying the eyeliner, look downwards so that you don’t get the eyeliner smudging all over your eyelids. Let it dry out first and test if they are done drying using your fingers. Gently dab to test.

After that, you’re all done! 😀

Hope you like this entry post as much as I do!

For all the single eyelids babes, don’t fret! With just extra patience and more practice, you’ll create lovely double eyelids in no time, even with falsies! I’m still on my learning journey as well!

JIA YOU! 😀 ❤
