After attending She Winks opening event they invited me back to their Midtown Manhattan store to get a set of mink lashes. I was cautiously optimistic as I had had false lashes applied once before and it was a horrible experience. Thinking back on it it – false lashes are one of those things you really should not go with the budget option on. Also, when they apply one lash to one lash it is much better than clumps when the salon applies ten clumps per eye.
Sitting under a wonderful cozy blanket with my legs propped up I did not notice that over an hour passed last week when I visited SheWinks after work. I asked the technician once she was done how many lashes I had and while she told me she did not count, she guessed around 60 per eye – does this look like 120 false lashes to you? It doesn’t to me but I could not be more pleased with how they look!
The following are a mix of photos from the launch party, Alyssa’s Instagram, and my photos from our visit last week:
A very zoomed in before and after shot:
I waited a full week after getting these mink lashes before I wrote a blog post because I wanted to make sure they were still as great 7 days later then they were after 7 minutes. The verdict: they are great. I must admit, it is a little bit of a problem – I keep taking selfies because they look so good!
Have you ever had eyelash extensions?
