I recently popped into the delightful Blink at 77 The Strand in Auckland’s Parnell where the equally delightful Michaela applied a set of eyelash extensions to my lashes – my second foray into having them done.
The first was a bit of a disaster to be honest, it was my wedding and I had them put on at another salon where the ‘natural’ look was definitely not the order of the day. Cue synthetic, Dolly Parton-esque lashes that I ripped out the day after our nuptials – not ideal!
Jess and her team of qualified lash technicians at Blink however, know great lashes. They’ve heard horror stories like mine of badly applied, painful lash extensions that resulted in damaged lashes and damaged reputations, but they are going about restoring faith in lash extensions, and doing a damn good job of it.
They only use top quality, individual silk and synthetic blend lashes that come in different lengths, curls and thicknesses. They don’t feel harsh and stiff at all – like my first set – and look pretty gorgeous. Lash extensions, when applied by qualified technicians last for a full two - four weeks before an infill is required to replace any lashes that have naturally fallen out. Individual lashes are applied to your own lashes - not your eyelid - so they’re very comfortable, look amazing and won’t rub or smudge during a good workout!
Lash extensions can be worn as a one off for a special occasion or ongoing, and a set at Blink costs $150 for a full set which take 90mins to apply. If you want to maintain your gorgeous new lashes, an infill is recommended once every 2 – 4 weeks for $60.00
To book a full set of lashes contact the team at Blink 08004BLINK or visit here, or maybe even pop in and say hi at 77 The Strand in Parnell. However, for one lucky reader I’ve got a full set of lash extensions valued at $150 to giveaway!
