On The Lash with Boudoir Lashes and BeautyMART

Last Friday BeautyMART joined forces with Boudoir Beauty Parlour to host ON THE LASH at the trendy new location of London's Boxpark in Shoreditch. Boudoir Lashes were offering a taster of their usual eyelash extensions by adding individual lashes to your own - for free with an accompanying glass of bubbly!

One of the lucky few to receive an appointment I shut down my computer Friday evening and took a stroll in the sunshine down to Shoreditch. Whilst I waited for my slot I was able to take a look at BeautyMARTs packed shelves. A very different space to Harvey Nichols yet full of all the brands we know and love.

The sales assistants are as knowledgeable as you expect and I was introduced to Balmain's great new range of haircare products which smell amazing! Let me know if you've tried them as they're definitely sitting on my wish list now.

I was slightly apprehensive about the experience and whether I would like the results but I had no reason to fear. In Asma's more than capable hands I sat, eyes closed whilst she went to work. I have seriously neglected my lashes over the years and only the past year started wearing mascara on a day to day to basis (much to my mothers delight!) and the application of false eyelashes has never really crossed my mind.

I LOVED the results and can't deny I did pause once or twice as I passed mirrors to admire the finished effect. Lashes from Boudoir Lashes start at £65 but will last weeks compared to the couple of days mine would last. That said we're on day 3 and they're still going strong.

A colleague at work asked me today if I'd changed mascara because my lashes looked fantastic and I revealed my secret and she too was impressed with how natural they looked. My only criticism, wearing sunglasses was quite bizarre with my extended lashes fluttering on the glass/wearing the sunglasses down my nose for room but I can handle that!

I'll definitely be returning to Asma and her team at their salon which offers all the usual treatments, including an extraction facial which was the treatment Caroline Hirons recommended I start having.

I'd love to hear if you've had lash extensions or experiment yourself with false lashes.
