For the past one week, I've been getting a lot of this, "Hilda, are you wearing falsies?" well the answer is no, I had eyelash extension instead (; Eyelash extension is nothing new in the beauty industry, but it's my first time experiencing it. I only had an eyelash perming two years back but that is totally different. I received an email from Pink Passion last month to try out their eyelash extension service, I was more than glad to accept the offer. Who on earth will say no to beautiful long lashes! I decided to have my eyelash extension done on the 1st October after a busy September, definitely a good way to kick start a new month (: So as a first timer, I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous cause I have no idea what to expect.
Pink Passion is a well-known expert in Silk and Rich Lashes Extension for the past 6-7 years, besides that they do provide service such as facial treatments, slimming treatments, bust treatments, hydrotherapy jacuzzi, cupping and ear candling. You can check more about their services, HERE.

I had Rich Lash Extension cause it's more suitable for those with short, fine and less lashes. As usual the most commonly asked question will be if it hurts, *cough* I can assure you that the process is totally pain-free and relaxing. Tape will be applied to the bottom lashes to keep the lashes out of the way during application. All you have to do is relax, close your eyes and leave the rest to the beautician. I almost dozed off halfway cause I barely feel anything. The whole process took around 45 minutes and...

|In Pink Passion, they also have colourful silk lashes for those who wanted to have a dramatic look for dinner or certain events. They even have silk lashes that comes in different types of curls and thickness.|
Ready for some before and

Needless to say, the difference is pretty obvious since everyone questioned me when they see me.
I have longer, thicker, curly and volumized lashes now!
After I had my eyelash extension, I prefer taking photos of my eyes closed :P

My verdict: What I love about it the most is that it's weightless and it creates a semi-dramatic look. I can even go out without any eye make up now. Guess what, you can put your mascara away for some time HEHE and it certainly does feel awesome waking up without the oh-I-just-woke-up look. You no longer dread looking at yourself in the mirror in the morning while brushing your teeth. Trust me, you'll love it. But of course with these beautiful lashes, there's a price to pay to. It took me around a week to get used to the feeling of having these eyelashes, it may be quite a nuisance at first (especially when it comes to washing my face and removing makeup) to be honest. It causes discomfort when you're wearing your glasses and sunglasses cause of the length. They acts like windshield wiper on your glasses LOL Since the glue is waterproof, it's totally fine to wash your face or involve in any water activities but not for the first 24 hours after application to allow adequate bonding time for the lashes.
Just a few tips;
- Avoid using cotton wool to remove eye makeups, use cotton buds instead.
- Avoid oil-based make up products around eyes.
- Avoid hot steam or sauna.
- Do not perm or use mechanical eyelash curler.
- Be gentle with no lashes. No pulling, excessive touching, rubbing.
- Do lie and say they are yours (;
