LVL Lashes- Worth it?

On Saturday, I popped in to a salon in Leeds city centre called Q61 to try out something I've always wanted to, LVL lashes.

Q61 was lovely- really high-end luxury feel on the inside, and the lady who did my treatment was called Amy. I even got a text from them the day before as both an appointment reminder and an invite to arrive 10 minutes early to enjoy a free coffee and relax.

LVL stands for length, volume, lift, and it is a treatment which takes around 45 minutes and effectively tints and 'perms' your lashes. I'm sure you've all heard of it before by now! A therapist uses a setting serum to straighten your natural lashes at the root (making them look curled up), and then your lashes are tinted, creating the appearance of mascara.

The cost? £45
How long does it last? 6-8 weeks

Before and after! *I'd just had to take my eye makeup off with a baby-wipe just before this was taken hence the red/puffiness!*

With mascara...(and taken at about 7am this morning):

My honest opinion?

I love big lashes. I love wearing layers of mascara. I LOVED when I had eyelash extensions (for the first week and a half anyway! Will do a review on those too soon). I'm a few days in and I'd say I LIKE LVL lashes. They're not thick, black and long enough for me to not wear mascara as I prefer a more glam look. If you are into minimal makeup or a more natural look though these will be perfect.

Not gonna lie, putting on mascara and liquid eyeliner is so difficult and takes some getting used to! The lashes just get in the way a bit, and you end up getting mascara on your brow bone as your lashes are so lifted. Cotton buds are my new best friend, and I found I had to change my mascara technique a bit too to stop them going clumpy.

However, I think that when they drop ever so slightly I'll like them even more and they'll be a little more 'user friendly'!

At night without makeup they look nice, just not as nice as with extensions! But for less cost, no damage to your natural lashes and longer lasting results- they are a brilliant alternative I recommend you all try for yourselves.

Lots of love,
