This week I was so excited to be invited to The Lash Lounge Portland in Bethany Village. They were sweet enough to offer me a complimentary lash lift and tint! If you’re not familiar with this service, it’s very different from lash extensions. They curl (aka perm/lift) your natural lashes using a special solution and it lasts until your lashes naturally fall out and new ones grow in. This can range from about 6-8 weeks depending on the person. No additional appointments for refills or removal required, and it’s about half the price of a traditional lash extensions set. For a busy mom like me, I really love this option as it replaces my lash curler and saves me time while getting ready. I have the straightest lashes ever, but the lash lift offers a really natural effect that still makes your eyes pop!
I am so happy with the results! I normally have to spend a good portion of my makeup routine trying to curl my lashes and make them look somewhat visible. They are so straight they actually grow downward! This service makes it possible to skip the lash curler completely. And the tint darkened my lashes noticeably so even on “no makeup” days (which let’s be honest, happen a lot as a SAHM) you can actually see my lashes.
If you are looking for a subtle and low-maintence alternative to lash extensions I think this is the perfect service for you. I love that it saves me time in the morning while getting ready and I can get it re-done whenever I have the time. The Lash Lift is $80 and the Lash Tint is $30 (you don’t have to get both). Totally worth the price in my opinion and I will definitely be returning to get this done again soon!

Thanks again to The Lash Lounge for having me in! <3
