It goes without saying, that over the past few years everyone has developed an obsession with lashes, strips, semi-permanent etc.
I am a huge fan of anything lashes.
Let’s talk strips , strips of lashes of course!
Then came out the Sosu lashes,
May I say between the marketing and packaging – wow, pretty impressive! Then I tried them, and ohhhh NO, they are absolutely fabulous!
The different styles, thickness, lengths, price range … loads of options there, and we love it!
I am going to admit though, I totally suck at putting strip lashes on myself … Plus I am a bit of a perfectionist which makes it even harder! They need to look PERFEEEEECT! And YES I know you are going to say, But what about all those Youtube Video tutorial, YUP!… tried that too – I just suck at it!

Because I have a bit of lashes obsession, I decided to try the Yumi lashes treatment a Simply beauty in Sandyford
They say Yumi Lashes is like a Lash perm but BETTER! Traditional Lash Perm only curve your Lashes, on the other hand the Yumi Lashes treatment lifts and boosts your natural lashes, it turn the eyelashes upward, gives volume and length as well.
Part of the treatment is the tint, which for the blondies is great, for me didn’t do much since I am such a brunette.
The treatment last about 40 to 60 minutes, it doesn’t hurt, it is actually relaxing, the chair in Simply Beauty has an internal heater, makes you all warm – definitely helped me relax!
No maintenance, only your lashes cannot touch water for a few hours, I reapplied make up the next day
The Yumi Lashes treatment last from 8 to 12 weeks
Yumi Lashes is actually just perfect for people who do not like semi-permanent or strip lashes
At Simply beauty they only charge 50€ for it, which i thought was a great deal!
I really like my lashes now, they are very curved, which make the mascara application in the morning a lot quicker and easier …
I obviously cannot talk about lashes without mentioning semi-permanent, right? They are fun, fabulous … every woman should try them at least once – then you’ll be addicted!
So as you know you have a professional beauty therapist applying lashes next to your own, mink, synthetic, silk …
