REVIEWED: Agnes Dos Santos - London's VEGAN eyelash bar!
There’s something about fake eyelashes that every time I get them I fall into the trap of never wanting to be without them… Ladies, you feel me right?
It’s the pretty, classy way they frame your eyes and make your eye colour (mine being blue) pop. Agnes Dos Santos was no different, a doll like set-up located in Kensington, West London it is any girlie-girls haven.
A couple of weeks ago I headed down to try out a full set of lashes. I have had lash extensions previously, but I’d taken a break for a year in order to let my real eyelashes have some downtime.
As I entered the gorgeous salon I spoke with my lash technician about what I hoped to get from the appointment. She showed me photos of her other clients which instantly made me relax, knowing I was in safe hands. I explained that I preferred a fluffy look that was dark and long compared to the subtler lashes. She agreed it would suit me, and instructed to get the ‘full classic’ set of lashes.
My lashes have lasted three and a half weeks and I’m only just feeling the need to infill them
The lashes take around two hours to apply and I would definitely recommend trying to fall asleep during the treatment as lying there awake can get quite restless. The salon plays relaxing songs so if you can’t drift off – at the very least you will be feeling very relaxed and comfortable.
When I reopened my eyes after the treatment I was thrilled at the result. My lashes created a deep impact to my eyes and the lash line was dark enough to not need to liquid eyeliner again. I was given a eyelash brush to take away with me and told to brush them every evening to prevent the lashes sticking together and damaging my natural eyelashes.
How long do they last?
My lashes have lasted three and a half weeks and I’m only just feeling the need to infill them. I have had endless compliments on my lashes since having them done and am so glad to have found a new lash bar with skilled and qualified technicians that really do deliver perfect lashes – plus with the added bonus it’s completely ethically friendly too!
I asked the lovely team at Agnes Dos Santos if I could give my readers a little discount if they wish to book over party season… and they agreed! You can find what you need to do at the bottom!
