New Year, New Lashes

I wasn’t born with long lashes. They are full but not long. Thanks to falsies, my eyes achieve a dramatic effect on special occasions when I need to look my best. On regular days, I just let my lashes be. I’ve tried using a lash curler and putting on mascara many times before, but my eyelid fringe is just really stubborn that they refuse to coil up. šŸ‘€

But I want nice lashes everyday! I have friends who have had extensions but no one has ever told me it’s comfortable, hence my hesitation. Being a mom of two, the last thing I’d want is for me to worry about heavy lids while taking care of my chikitings. Then I heard about this place, New Lounge, that girls are raving about. Even celebs are saying how the lashes feel as if there’s nothing extra on their eyes! When I did my research, I learned that it’s primarily because of the lash material they use.

In general, there are 3 types of lashes:
  • Synthetic or Silk lashes – the most common type. Usually made from plastic fibers, thus these are heavy and uncomfortable to wear. They also tend to look unnatural because they are much thicker (0.2mm) than real lashes.
  • Mink or Faux Mink lashes - thinner (0.15 to 0.2mm) and softer than synthetic lashes. They have a certain gloss or sheen.
  • Sable lashes – the thinnest and softest with 0.10 to 0.15mm thickness, made from natural hair.

Guess what New Lounge uses? Sable. That’s why it wasn’t difficult to convince myself to go for it!šŸ˜ I went to the Las Pinas branch.

The place is small but tidy, the chairs are rather comfy. :)
The lash menu. I got natural volume extensions. :)
Look at my lashes!  From drab to fab!šŸ’–

The reviews are true. New Lounge's sable lashes are ultra light, with zero discomfort.  I'm one super happy customer!šŸ˜  And what I love about it is it looks very natural, as if I only curled my lashes. I'm already on my second week and the lashes still look good despite the fact that some have already fallen off. They say you have to go back for a retouch (or repair) after 2-3 weeks, so I’m going back next week.

Two thumbs up, New Lounge!šŸ‘šŸ‘  Thank you!
