OK, maybe it’s more like eight months. Dang, time is flying. But back to the matter at hand: my eyelash extensions! I wrote about them when I got my full set in August from Amazing Lash Studio Elk Grove. Over the past few months, I’ve received questions about my experience and how my lashes are holding up, so I decided to give you all an update on all things LASH related!
Yes, I haven’t taken a break since I got them done in August…and I LOVE THEM. The team at Amazing Lash Studio Elk Grove has taken care of your girl. Getting my lash extensions is a little something extra that I do to make myself feel glamorous and it doesn’t take that much more effort in my day-to-day routine.
No, the application doesn’t hurt, and they do not hurt after. If you suffer from allergies and are rubbing your eyes often, you may become irritated with your lashes. I recommend keeping some eye drops and your lash wand handy.
Yes! They are still there. My lashes are not naturally long or thick, but they still have their normal density.
I think this is totally personal preference and also a lifestyle check. I wear makeup a few days a week. Not a ton, but I do wear it, which means that’s oil on my face and if that gets near my lashes, it can affect the longevity. On average, I go about every 2 to 2.5 weeks for my refills. Most days I’m in and out because I’m very meticulous about my lash care, but some days one eye is looking a little crazier than the other 😉
They can be! It depends on a lot of factors: who is doing them, what the lashes are made of, and how often you get them touched up. Some are synthetic; some are mink. My Amazing Lashes are synthetic and I’ve never had an irritation. With their membership option, your lashes won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Not at all. I added one step in my AM and PM routines for daily maintenance!
I use a few different Amazing Lash Studio branded products to make sure I am getting the most out of each and every refill. I’ve tried a few other products as well, but these are my key to making my set last.
Since I started getting lashes, the company has grown in our region, with locations in Natomas, the Arden area, Roseville and Folsom, too, so make an appointment and check them out. Mention “Code 11 – The Lipstick Giraffe” for $10 off your first set.

Hi! I’ve also been getting my lashes done at Amazing Lash for several months and love it. However, I notice in the summer months the refills are more frequent because of the heat/humidity (I’m from Texas!). I’m considering buying the lash coating to help this situation but don’t want to spend the money if it’s not really worth it. Have you seen a noticeable different with the life of your lashes with it?
Thanks in advance! 🙂
Hi Victoria! Yes, in Texas the humidity in summer is going to get you. I would highly recommend the coating to help with that issue! We’re a bit dryer in Sacramento so I don’t have to use it that much in winter. How often do you go for a refill?
Sounds great, I’ll make sure to purchase that next time I’m there for a refill. I go about every 3 weeks!
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
