Lash Extensions vs Lash-lift and tint: Which is the one for you?

Jul 19 , 2022

What are lash extensions? 

Eyelash extensions are semipermanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural eyelashes. There are many pros and cons to eyelash extensions. Today, we will be unpacking some of the pros.


  • You spend less time doing your makeup:

Instead of spending time applying mascara, or trying to stick on strip lashes – you wake up in the morning and your lashes are done.


  • You look put together all the time:

You do not need to put on makeup every morning, because even with a bare face you still look like you put in effort.


  • It is a pain-free procedure:

The process of getting your lashes done is painless and if you do feel uncomfortable when they are just stuck on, it will only last for a few minutes.


  • They are long-lasting:

Lash extensions last for 2-3 weeks before you need a fill, and even though they can be high maintenance, they are semi-permanent.


  • They are waterproof:

You can get lash extensions wet without worrying about them falling off. That’s because lash extensions are affixed on your natural lashes with the help of a medical-grade glue made from the chemical cyanoacrylate.


Now onto lash-lifts and tints..


What is a lash-lift and tint?

A lash lift is essentially a perm for your lashes that offers eye-popping results by creating a natural curl and lift to your lashes. There are many positives to a lash-lift.


  • They are affordable:

Lash-lifts are not expensive and you get amazing results for a lower price.


  • No touch-ups or follow up appointments:

You do not need to attend any follow-up appointments when it comes to lash-lifts. They are low maintenance.


  • Lasts extremely long:

Unlike lash extensions that usually last 2-3 weeks before you need a fill, lash lifts can easily last over a month and some lucky ladies’ lash lifts can last 2 to 3 months.


  • No need to wear mascara:

You do not need to apply mascara to achieve length as the lift will make your natural lashes appear much longer.


  • Enhanced beauty:

Your overall appearance will be enhanced when you get a lash lift. You will feel like the most beautiful version of yourself.


In conclusion, both treatments will have a positive impact on your self-confidence!
