I have always been content with my almost bald eyelids. Never been one to bother wearing falsies- I can actually count how many times I have worn them in my life and that is 5. I’ve been quite curious about semi-permanent lash extensions though because they give you beautiful wispy lashes without the stress of gluing and stripping them off everyday.
So it was perfect timing when Sheun of the Lash Lounge reached out to me about her eyelash extension service that she provides in VI, Lagos. The company says- “The Lash Lounge specializes in individual semi permanent eyelash extensions. The process involves individual silk/mink eyelash extensions being applied one by one to the clients natural lashes to create beautiful, fuller and natural looking lashes.” I was pretty excited to try this out so I headed over there on a fine Saturday morning…
|Before and After|
The appointment started off with Sheun sharing a lot of useful information on how the procedure would go, after care and general maintenance. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does so this helped to put me at ease because I started to freak out when she told me it would take 2 hours! 2 hours of keeping my eyes closed and lying down still..lol!

She advised that I get the C-curl lashes because they are the most natural looking. I’m not quite ready to go from 0 to a 100, real quick.. *cues in Drake*…So I got on the bed, shut my eyes, had them taped down and let Sheun do her thing. The time went by pretty fast to be honest because she had classic Amy Winehouse playing in the background. Towards the last 30mins though, I got tired of staring at the insides of my eyelids and became restless…Overall though, it was a very easy and painless procedure. Just some discomfort at certain times but I really am just a big baby, if you know me you would know everything hurts.. 🙂

I was very pleased with the results, the lashes are very beautiful-they gave my face an instant lift. For some reason, I thought they would be heavy but they are pretty weightless. Sheun advises that the lashes should be refilled every 21 days to keep them looking in top shape. She also advised that the eye area should be washed with something gentle like baby shampoo not with anything oil based as this will cause the glue to shift and dislodge the lash extensions. She said you can wash your eye area normally without the fear of them falling off if using the right product. She also prohibits mascara on the lashes, very strictly!
She was very kind to offer me this service complimentary and I really appreciate it- Thank you Sheun!
