WHILE YOU WERE UNWRAPPING PRESENTS, I WAS GETTING EVERYTHING EXTENDED

I visited eyeLure Brow and Lash Boutique for eyelash extensions. I chose the Lushlash package, which consists of 110 lashes per eye and costs $210 without the deal I purchased, and lasts for 3-5 weeks, with a $70 appointment in between for touch-ups.

So yeah, it’s pricey, and addictive, like cocaine, if cocaine made you better looking. There are cheaper (but not cheap) packages which you see here. But if you want to do something to improve your appearance in the New Year, this is probably the most dramatic improvement you can get in an hour.

Plus, you get to lie down in a bed and cover up with a blanket while you get your lashes applied, which takes about an hour. You have your eyes closed the whole time, and for me there was the occasional slight irritation of someone messing with my eyes, but no pain. It’s honestly super-relaxing, and you could easily take a nap if you wanted. The ladies at eyeLure are super-nice and I think were kind of excited when I said I liked a “dramatic look.” I think most people want to look — SNOOZE — natural.

On the left, my eyes all mole-like and mascara-less pre-extensions and on the right, my lashes right after application.

The best thing about extensions is that even for a makeup addict like me, the extensions kind of eliminate the need for eye makeup. I wake up looking like a fucking Kardashian! Between being able to just throw on some lipstick and go, and my newly low-maintenance hair, my upgrades cost me money but saved me a ton of time.

The biggest rule of eyelash extensions is that you’re NOT allowed to wear mascara, which you totally don’t need anyway. Also, you have to avoid extreme heat like saunas and hot yoga classes. If you’re looking for an excuse not to go to a hot yoga class, this is a great one.

For the first week or so, while I was getting used to my hair and eyelash extensions, I felt a little “Look, no touch,” but that’s kind of true of my general style anyway.
