It's always on my To Do list to try them! I've seen people with them before and they've looked great (and seem to have lasted reasonably well on them). Is Rapidlash really that good Nonna? How does it work / what does it do? My lashes are very short and straight.
I've had them - look fab for about three weeks than start looking odd as some still in and some out ! You should go every couple of weeks to stop this and have some more reapplied. It's the time it takes hat stops me going so often - takes over 2 hours !
Have used rapid lash stuff and didn't make much difference.
Had them in for a week, the itching and inability to rub my eyes/clean my face/wear glasses drove me to get them off.. Unfortunately even using oil as recommended many of my own meagre lashes came out. I am never going to have them done again. 2 hours to out in which included unglueing my bottom set from the extensions... Not impressed, they looked and felt odd
Sorry to go off on one, but use a good mascara, use rapid lash use stick ons but don't damage your own lashes
I've had them done for the last year. Infills every 2 weeks. I love them. [Grin] Look great and save me so much time - the time I used to spend with mascara and straighteners every morning trying to make my eyelashes look half decent!
I've hear good things about Elizabeth Arden ceramide lash extending treatment mascara (mascara comes in black or brown, I think, and encourages lash growth (£21), I think. I know lots of people are put off EA (many think it's an older lady range) but I used to LOVE their lash defining mascara before they DC'd it years ago. The ceramide lash has good review and is supposed to be easy to wash off (ophthalomologically and dermatologically tested). I think I'd try this before I shelled out the cash for eyelash extensions tbh. A lot of people use a tiny drop of castor oil at the root of the lashes to encourage growth but I find neat oils near my eyes irritating. HTH.
