Benefit Cosmetics Eyelash Extension Review

Hi All! Sorry it's been a while. My computer has been on the brink and has has a mostly black screen for the past couple of weeks. I finally broke down and got a new one yesterday! 

I am so excited about this post, because it's something that I've been talking about for over a month - The truth about Benefit Cosmetics Eyelash Extensions. 

Sharon and I went to California in May and July for some important business meetings and decided bring our A-game by getting fake lashes. Here is my review:

The Lashes 
The lashes themselves, once applied, are amazing!!! With 3 different lengths to choose from, the lashes blend extremely well with your real ones and add a ton of volume! I literally have never felt so beautiful. With the Benefit lashes on, I didn't wear a bit of eye liner or mascara. It wasn't needed, the lashes did it all. (Well until the day of the meeting, pictured above.)
      Rating: 5/5

The Lash Removal 
The lash removal process practically ruined my experience. I was so excited about them and then after about 2 weeks, two of my fake lashes fell out - the ones right in the middle of my eye aka the most obvious ones. So, being the neurotic person that I am, I then had to take all of them off. But none of the Ulta people could tell us how to do it! We visited the store multiple times, but both times we visited, none of the lash/brow professionals were in. So, we resorted to just old fashioned soap and water. Need less to say, it didn't work so well. It hurt and worst of all - It ripped out half of my natural lashes!!!! My eyelids were so bald after wearing them!
       Rating: 1/5

(Side note, we did find out how to take them off afterwards. According to one of the Brow Bar associates, the best way to remove Benefit Cosmetics Eyelash Extensions is simply by using baby oil. They recommended putting baby oil on a q-tip and gently rubbing the glue. Whether that actually works, I am not really sure.)

Overall Review
I am quite torn about this product. The lashes themselves are amazing! I LOVED having the lashes in and I wish I could wear them forever. But that's the downside. If you wear them once, you better be prepared to wear them time and time again, because when you remove them, they will rip out quite a few of your natural lashes. Regardless of that though, I am extremely happy with the lashes so I still give them a high rating.
       Rating: 4/5

(Sorry for all the selfies. I didn't bring my regular camera to Cali and thus didn't take actual pictures.)

What are your experiences with the Benefit lashes?
