So i got eyelash extensions at Stylash this morning. (Yes, groupon site hoarder right here! This was a deal from Ensogo).

I know a lot of people who regret getting extensions, saying that they are too high maintenance, too heavy, and that they sting. You can’t curl your lashes, can’t use mascara, can’t rub your eyes, and that they are really uncomfortable in general.

Stylash uses natural mink hair for their extensions, which comes in different sizes, thickness, colors and shapes. You can check out their website for that but my voucher only allowed for the “Natural” look, and i opted for the C-shape lashes in the shape “chic” (which is basically just longer along the middle).

The technician had to assess my lashes first and recommended 10mm lashes in 0.20mm thickness, as well as shorter 8mm lashes to fill in near the corners of my eyes. Yes my lashes are naturally freaky long and thick that they had to use pretty long and thick lashes too. :)

The procedure lasted an hour, I think (that with eyebrow threading). All I could make out was that they had to tape things on my eyelids, and that the glue smelled like dissolved superglue. It didn’t sting but sometimes the hair would poke my waterline and that felt itchy! The glue also stung my nose a little from the smell. Then poof! Before I went they gave this packet of Q10 collagen treatment to use before i sleep tonight.

These are I think 80pcs per eye. Next time I’ll try 120pcs for more conversation starters and small talk. Like, “bae y u have eyelashes on ur eyelashes” or “gurl you lashes they freaky are dey na-tu-ruhl?”

As I am typing this now, i can hardly feel them. They’re so light and fluffy they feel just like my natural lashes. The only weight I feel is a tiny bit, from the residual glue, but it will come off soon.

So yes, first lash extension experience, great success! Tip:if you’re going to get extensions elsewhere, make sure they use natural hair and that they glue the lashes to your natural lashes at a 1:1 ratio.

It was Ms. Agnes from Stylash Fishermall who did my lashes, btw. 💜

Because photo and video taking policies in public in the Phili-f*cking-ppines has become ridiculous to the point of it being irrational in so many levels and metalevels, yes I have decided to get myself a point and shoot, a compact one at that!

image

It’s a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS (which is the GPS capable version of the SX240 HS, not that I’ll be utilizing it but the latter was out of stock or something).

image

So many dials to play with o__O

image

Also, 20x optical zoom times 4x digital zoom for a total of 80 something times of concert zooming.

image

I am also digging the green AF assist lamp o___O

I was choosing between a Lumix ZS20, this, and a Sony HX30v (all superzoom compacts, most places don’t allow bridge cameras as well) but this one was already available in black and the seller had a crazy cheap deal on it. 

and as promised, a shot of my camera (not from the said helicopter though)

image

I have yet to try the zoom under low light but it seems to be functioning well. I know the biggest aperture is only 3.5 but at least it’s less blurry than 3.1-3.3 — Also need an extra battery pack lol for maximum concert documentation.

Samples:

Taken right outside Pancake House’s (Gateway) window. The pink arrow shows where i’m zooming in on the following pictures:

this is at 20x (optical zoom)

4x more zoom for a total of 80x —- and two random people later.

photos were sharp for unstabilized, handheld shots!

this is not a paid review.

My current contact lenses (Dueba Barbie Girly Chip Soy Latte / G&G Blossom Brown) were apparently more than 100 below my actual grade and i want to see the world bright and clear so i just had to get ones in -3.75! Japanesecandy has been my go-to shop for circle lenses because they ship super fast, they accept payments via Unionbank online transfer (less hassle) and they have loads of lenses on hand. They were running a sale so i got this pair for only P340, inclusive of shipping! Sadly though they didn’t have natural looking browns for my tastes. :( i had to settle with this, Dueba (Sweety) Gossip Gray.

above: girly chip soy latte. below: dueba gossip gray

The pattern on it looks super subtle on the case as the limbal ring is a faint black-grey. The material itself is pretty thin and comfy. 

but once popped in…

i think these may be one of the fakest looking contact lenses i have ever worn. still pretty though, from afar, but when i check myself on the mirror i creep myself out. definitely not for close encounters with males / dates / and normal people.
