A Lash Lift and Tint Review

A Lash Lift and Tint Review

14 comments

About a month ago I was whining to a friend about my lashes and how I had been using this to grow them but always had to wear mascara because my natural lashes are so blonde. It's not a real life problem - I'm completely aware.  

A few days after my initial whine, she texted me about something called a 'Lash Lift and Tint.' Of course, I immediately looked it up. A lash tint is basically a temporary coloring of your lashes. It only lasts a couple of weeks and can cost $20-40 depending on where you live. A lash life is like a perm for your lashes. Your lashes are held back, there is a 'perm gel' applied and once it's done your lashes look like they are curled. A lash lift will last between 2-3 months.

I googled, "Lash Lift and Tint in Little Rock" and beauty spa called Beauty Geek in the area popped up that provides the service.  The lash lift is $100, the lash lift is $40 and if you combine services it's $130. Not cheap, but I wanted to try it so badly that I figured it was worth the splurge. 


So here are my lashes with one coat of this mascara. I did not curl them, I didn't do anything but add one coat of mascara to show a better before/after of the lift. 


So this looks weird, but let me explain. First, your lash expert, mine was Jai at Beauty Geek, will apply an under eye pad that holds down your bottom lashes. You don't really 'feel' anything because your eyes are closed the entire time. 


Here's a closer look at what it looks like. 

Next, a curved silicone pad is glued to your eyelids. This part feels a little funny because there is a little warming feeling of the glue from the pad to your lid, but it's not painful. These silicone lash pads come in different sizes of S, M, or L depending on your lid size and lash length. My lid/lash size is a medium.



OK - Now this is the part that is strange to see in photos but feels surprisingly relaxing while it's happening. Basically, your lashes are gently being placed on the gel pad that holds them down. 


All this feels like is someone is massaging your lashes. Again, no discomfort. The lash expert was playing some really easy going music so the entire atmosphere is pretty comfortable.


Once your lashes are gently placed on the gel pad, it's time to apply the magic perm potion that curls them. 

There *might* be a slight smell to this part, but only if you breathe deeply. To be honest, at this point I was a little concerned if my eyes would start to water from having a pad holding down my bottom lashes, my top lashes on the gel pad and then adding the perm solution. 

The lash expert assured me that everything was fine and kept me updated on the timing of everything. The gel solution is left on your lashes while you relax with your eyes closed. 


Doesn't this look so weird? 

The perm solution is left on for around 10 min, then the tint was applied and left on for 5-7 minutes. I went for the blue-black tint color because it is the darkest. 

Next, a nourishing treatment is applied and left for a few minutes to make sure it's all set. 

The entire process is maybe around an hour.


Once you're done the solutions are gently removed and again, this might be the best feeling because 1) it feels like another massage and 2) you know it's almost time to see what it looks like! 


My lash expert called this the 'lash blowout' which felt really bougie and I loved every minute of it. 

I love bougie moments.


After all the eye pads are removed it's time to open your eyes! The light will feel really bright but I couldn't get to a mirror quickly enough.

I look awake and like I am wearing a coat of mascara!!  I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE THIS! My lashes look longer, are darker and no need for an eyelash curler!

Now, remember the cardinal rule of getting a perm from Legally Blonde. You cannot wet your perm for 24 hours after getting one in risk of deactivating the solution. 


Yes, spending $130 might seem like a lot, but honestly, considering how happy it makes me ... it's totally worth it.

  2. Wow this is awesome! I have blonde eyelashes too, so I know the struggle. How long does it last? Because even though it's expensive, might be more cost effective than eyelash extensions!

  8. I knew about the procedures but I always had the impression that you can't do both at once. Good to know that technology evolved.

  12. I've never even heard of a lash lift! There is a surprising difference in the way your lashes look too, I'd say it's definitely worth the money if you have lashes you want to make more noticeable!
