I AM IN LOVE!!
I recently had lash extensions done at Lash Affair Lounge in Edmonton and I could not be happier! I feel like I look so pretty, so alert, and so flirty. Adam commented tonight (while I was charmingly looking down, you know, all natural like, while we talked…to show off my long lashes subtly) at how I look so pretty & put together. He mentioned that he loves how the lashes feature my eyes. IM SOLD! As someone who wears lashes camping (and hair extensions sometimes) so as to look pretty when everything about me is gritty….i’m sold! I love being able to roll out of bed & not *need* any other makeup to be ready for the day.
I felt comfortable the moment I stepped into the exquisite lash lounge & as any woman who gets any beautifying done knows…. the visit with your practitioner matters almost as much as what you are having done. The lounge is stunning, feminine and cozy all rolled into one. I never wanted to leave. The music & wall colors were soothing ( I think I had a mini nap!). I had Courtney (the owner) do my lashes, and I SO enjoyed our visit. The staff is all very personable & you will find yoruself lingering after your lash apointment, just gabbing. They are absolute sweethearts, who sincerely care about you & your eyes! Before I left the lounge, all of the ladies said “lets see! lets see!” and “oohhhed & awed” over my trasnformation. I loved the lounge, the experience, Courtney and mostly….THE WAY I LOOK! All glam & pretty! I had lashes done by Lash Affair lounge right before I gave birth to my daughter & it was one of the best choices that I made. I felt attractive during labor & those first few rough days. I looked alert & cute for my numerous hosiptal guests & for any surprise guests over the next few weeks. It was a great confidance booster while dealing with everything post pardum ;)
We always say that if bride’s do one thing for themselves for their wedding it should be getting their makeup professionally done by someone talented (we can recommend) and ensuring that in that process, they get artificial lashes put on. Up until now, this typically meant “day use” strip or single lashes, applied by a makeup artist. NOW, we would recommend getting lash extensions at the Lash Affair Lounge!
Why? anyone who has had false lashes knows that they are annoying, feel weird and get itchy (but photograph OH SO BEAUTIFULLY!). My lash extensions do not feel like anything. They are completely lightweight, non itchy and perfect. They are SO comfortable that I would never know I had extensions on, if every mirror I passed didn’t remind me ;)
Secondly, they last!!! LADIES, this has you covered for your stagette, wedding day & HONEYMOON!!! You can have sexy, dramatic lashes while you lie in the sun in Hawaii! With hot Alberta winter weddings & hot tropical Destination weddings, lash extentions are the answer! Your eyes will not run! They are SO low maintance that it isn’t even funny & they look SO pretty and natural! The best part is that you (or your mom, she should get them too!) can cry all you want on your wedding day without running mascara and on your honeymoon you can swim, surf (you will be the hot chick on the surf board!), workout, and shower with them!
I SO wish I had them when Adam & I were on our honeymoon and I was ziplining through the jungles of Mexico & repelling down a waterfall (raccoon eye!!). I would have looked glam & sexy the entire time!
Eyelash extensions: Full set lasts between 6-8 weeks but if you want to upkeep them you go for fills every 3.5 weeks for $60. Perfect for non-smudging or smearing on your wedding day (and honeymoon!)
Lash Parties: Groups of 4 or more receive special VIP pricing with a 10% off on all services, and the lash lounge to themselves. A bottle of wine, and snacks also provided. Perfect for a stagette, or bridal shower!
The best part is that any look can be achieved! You can be as dramatic as you’d like, to soft and natural, and everything in between. When I was waiting for my turn, a middle aged lady had a very natural look done on her & may I just say…not only did it look incredibly natural, but she looked stunning!!
If you LOVE having pretty eyes, RUN to the lash lounge, tell them Radelle/Eternal Reflections Photography sent you to recieve 10% off of your set & enjoy being part of the sexy eye club!

Lash Affair was started by Courtney Buhler as a home-based business back in 2009. Her passion for the fullest, longest lasting lashes soon had her business booming, and demand was too much to keep up with! Her team then grew to include employees (who underwent hours, upon hours, of training to ensure the quality of eyelash extensions remained superior to anywhere else). Lash Affair is now expanding to it’s first commercial location on Edmonton’s Southside Spring 2012!
