REVIEW: Russian lash extensions at Love Those Lashes

By  |  0 Comments

I’ve always had naturally long lashes, but if you’re like me and want that extra bit of oomph, volume and curl for a holiday or special occasion, then Russian lashes are your best option.
Before a trip to Mexico, I visited Love Those Lashes in Charing Cross to get them looking fluttery and full so I could enjoy a trip sans makeup and still feel great.
A lash extension treatment involves applying individual synthetic lashes onto each natural eyelash to add extra length and volume. They’re perfect for holidays, a big event or just perfect lashes every day.


Russian lashes are ultra-fine synthetic lashes that are made from the same soft fibre as classic lashes. Because they’re much thinner, the therapist is able to apply more lashes to each natural lash – anything between 2-8. Russian lash extensions are applied in a fan-like shape, which gives more volume too.
It takes around an hour and a half for a full set to be applied, so it’s definitely not a lunch-break treatment. But it’s the perfect pampering treatment to make you feel glammed up for a special occasion.

Having fallen foul of extreme lash loss from previous lash extensions, I was a bit apprehensive but I can honestly say after my Love Those Lashes treatment that my lashes actually appeared to have grown fuller and thicker than before!
With the Russian lash treatment, which costs £65, there’s no need for mascara and the create a really full look that makes your eyes appear larger and more defined.
Mines lasted a lot longer than I thought – around six weeks – and naturally fell out over time without ruining my own lashes.
However, to avoid them looking patchy as they grow out, most lash salons usually recommend top ups after 2 or 3 weeks to keep lashes looking completely full and uniform.
