Because the extensions adhere to the eyelash itself, they last as long as the natural growth cycle, or about six weeks. While there's no cutting and drying deadline, you can expect your eyelash extensions to last 3 to 6 weeks. The costs of filling eyelash appointments can increase, so the longer you can get your extensions to last, the more money you'll save in the long run. If you're looking for longevity, it depends on the type of bond and the amount you use.
When you start, you may have two or three days left without using your Gossamers. But once you get better at applying bail, your eyelashes can last three to five days. Officially, they're designed to last up to 10 days, and Medicis claims that some users can even use them for a full two weeks. If you want your eyelashes to last longer, you can try Lashify's extra strong bonus, which is called Bondage.
However, your lifestyle, eyelash maintenance and genetics play an important role in how long Gossamer lashes last (oily eyelids dissolve bonding faster). Mine lasted three days, which was pretty good considering my rookie status. The lifespan of your lashes will also depend on how well you take care of them after applying them, and thankfully, there are many things you can do at home to help preserve your appearance. To avoid washing your eyelashes directly for the first 48 hours, keep eye makeup to a minimum to maximize extensions.
Once all the lashes have been removed, I make sure to go in and gently slide the cotton over my natural lashes to remove any excess bonding. As tempting as it may seem, Feroz encourages customers to resist that urge to play with their eyelashes all day long or while they are being cleaned.
Eyelash extensionsmust adhere to natural lashes, so be careful not to stick them to the eyelids. Eyelashes, or chiffon, come in small sheaths with a set for each eye; they are cut into small strips that are approximately one-fifth of an inch long.
By playing with extensions, not only can false eyelashes be removed, but natural eyelashes can also be damaged. They lasted about a week, but in that week the groups of eyelashes slipped a lot and several of them ended up in positions where they were close to falling out but didn't, or where they pricked my eye because they moved towards my upper waterline. If you want to reuse your eyelashes, you can do so by thoroughly cleaning them with makeup remover and isopropyl alcohol. Made from pure Korean PBT silk, Gossamers are lightweight and feathery, so they don't stress natural lashes.
There is a big misconception that people have about semi-permanent eyelashes, which will damage real eyelashes. The remover works like magic; I decided to put it on a Q tip and place it only on the glue, without letting it touch my skin or eyes, because they are made to stick to the eyelashes, not to the eyelids. Lashify sells an oil-based makeup remover called Melt Away, which Medicis believes is the best way to remove Gossamer eyelashes. However, if you really want to give more life to your eyelashes, you should avoid sleeping so that your face rests against the sheets or pillow.
