"Lash lifts" are different from extensions

Excerpts from an article at Real Simple:
As the newest “it” trend on the beauty block, lash lifts are making major waves–and for good reason. Not only does the procedure require little effort, it also lasts longer than eyelash extensions with fewer potential side effects. You can also customize your results from the shape of the curl to adding a a tint if you don't plan on wearing mascara every day.

A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment best described as a perm for your eyelashes. "A lift is essentially what your lash would be doing with a really good mechanical curler... The technician separates your lower and upper lashes and applies a silicone pad to your upper lid. He or she then glues your lashes to the pad to start shaping your eyelashes into a deeper curl. Three lotions containing the right chemicals are then applied...

The cost of a lash lift can vary depending on your location and the expertise of your technician, but customers can expect to pay anywhere from $75 to $150.

  1. Yum, glue and chemicals right next to my eyes !

  2. I've heard the biggest issue with the lash lift is that there is not really a way to spot-test and make sure that you don't have a bad reaction to the chemicals they use. One woman I know had such an adverse reaction to the chemicals that she had to stay home for a few days until the swelling went down. Personally I don't want any chemicals that close to my eyes.
