Lashes by Wendy


A couple of weeks ago I went on a rampage, subscribing to all those daily offers websites that are popping up everywhere. One of which was the Dailydo, and a couple of days after subscribing, my daily email notification informed me the special of the day was semi-permanent eyelash extensions with 65% off the normal price. Since one of my recently-made goals is to stop being so freaking lazy when it comes to my appearance and my clothing, I snapped it up, and had my appointment after work yesterday at Lashes by Wendy on Cuba Street.

First of all, lying down with your eyes closed for an hour or so straight after work is fabulous- although near the beginning my eyes had a solid couple of minutes of spastic twitching which was bizarre. Totally relaxing, Wendy's room is in a great little private space tucked upstairs away from the street, she's lovely, the time flies by. I've worn false eyelashes before, but really didn't know what to expect with these Nouveau Lashes, which last a few weeks before falling out as your own lashes grow (don't ask me for specifics). Having them applied was perfectly comfortable, and when it was done I was pleasantly surprised by just how pretty they look, without being over-the-top (although this option is apparently available if you desire!)

I think walking home from my appointment with little make up on yesterday, they probably did look a little false, but with a 'face' on today, in my opinion anyway, I just look like I have a seriously badass mascara and good lash genes.

I purchased the special with the intention of going once to try it out, but since maintenance appointments are pretty affordable... I'm pretty much decided I'll keep them up. Granted it's been one day so far, but already the appeal of no more smudgy mascara (bar a touch on the bottom lashes if required) is pretty irresistible.

What do you think? (I'm wearing mascara in the 'before' shot, which was taken a couple of weeks ago).



If you're curious and in Wellington, go join the Lashes by Wendy Facebook page and get in contact with her! I highly recommend. Will let you know how they're holding up as time progresses.

I've never even heard of a service like this! And I think you look beautiful in both :) but I can definitely see the difference.

That's so neat! I love your natural lashes, they're already so long and pretty. But, the fake ones look really amazing.
