Okay. If you are a woman who is remotely interested in beauty, then you’ve probably heard about eyelash lifting and tinting. A few weeks ago, I did a review on eyelash tinting. Click here, if you’ve missed it. It was a hoot!!
Now, I am doing a review on the lifting.

Yes, I tried it myself. I’m not big on going to a salon and spending lots of money on something that I can do myself. As with everything else, I did tons of research and it took me awhile to actually make the purchase. I ended up purchasing the Meisheng Kit.
If you go to a salon, you will need to sit for about 45 minutes and spend anywhere from 30€-75€ depending on where you go. If you buy the kit (with several applications) online it is about 14€ and it took about 30 minutes per eye, as you shouldn’t do both eyes at once. I learned that with the tinting!! You have to repeat the process just as you would for a regular hair perm, every 4-6 weeks.
If you know me, you know that the price spoke to me and that is why I decided to buy it online and try it. And if I liked it, I have several more applications! If not, it wasn’t a huge loss.
Just like with other review on tinting, I will be getting my serious face on and talk about the not-so-fun-to-read risks involved in lifting. Don’t skip to the bottom for all of the fun-to-read things!! No cheating!
One thing that you need to know about lifting is that it is not FDA approved.
Some of the risks include:
- Fragile eyelashes
- Dry eye.
Disclaimer: I don’t suggest that you try this like I did because there are too many horrible side effects. If you decide to do this, it is at your own risk. I have done my best to try to inform you of the risks.
- The Kit!
- Eyelash glue. Your kit might already include this.
My experience: First, I watched this video on YouTube. I gathered my things and started. I put the eyelash glue onto my eyelid and placed the pink curl shaper. I added glue onto where my lashes would stick. I waited a few minutes to let the glue get tacky and then pushed my eyelashes onto the pink curl shaper. This was not an easy task!! I would place them good on one side of my lid and by the time I got to the other, the beginning part was off again! But eventually, with some patience, it worked! Then, I applied the pink perming solution with a toothpick. I waited for 15 minutes. I used a Q-Tip without the cotton to clean off as much of the perming solution as possible. Then, I liberally added the white finalizing solution. I waited for 5 minutes. Again, I used a Q-Tip without the cotton to clean it off. Then, with a cottoned Q-Tip, I added the moisturizer and waited 5 more minutes. Waiting, waiting, waiting is the name of the game! After that was finished, it was time to use another cottoned Q-Tip to use the cleaning solution to clean off your lashes. I did have a really hard time cleaning off the glue from my eyelid. In fact, I think it’s still on there a little bit! My kit didn’t come with glue but maybe if it did, then I wouldn’t have such sticky lids! Then, I waited, waited, and waited while doing my other eye.
Here you see the difference between my left lid (without lifter) and my right lid (with lifter). It’s a nice difference, isn’t it?! I’m really please! I don’t think that most people would notice but it make my eye seem bigger and more awake. The other looks doopy!!
I think this product would be good for women who are always in a hurry in the morning and don’t have time to self prep. Like mothers! But then again, this is a timely procedure. I think the best time for a mother to do this on herself is either when the kids are at school or when they are in bed.
Would I do it again?
Ah, the million dollar question! Would I do it again… Yes! I will be doing it again! I think it’ll get easier and better looking every time that I do it because then I’ll know how to get my lashes to stick better and such. I’m very happy.
- Have you ever tried eyelashing lifting before?
- Have you ever thought about about?
- Is there a glue that you recommend or something that takes off the sticky glue?!
