You might already know everything about eyelash extensions and Lash Lift, but what do you know about Yumi Lashes? It's an advanced technique designed to boost and lift your natural eyelashes without the need for fake eyelashes.
In collaboration with Carolina at Skinbeauty, I tried Yumi Lashes before my trip to Thailand. Carolina is one of the first Yumi Lashes specialists in Sweden. Even though Yumi Lashes was founded over a decade ago in Switzerland, it has just recently been introduced to the Scandinavian market. That's why I decided to ask the Swedish expert, Carolina, all about it!

Before & After Yumi Lashes
This is my result with Yumi Lashes. Big difference, right? As you can see from the before picture, my natural lashes are extremely straight. Not even an eyelash curler can usually keep them lifted for more than a few hours. That's why I absolutely love how Yumi Lashes managed to keep my lashes curved for weeks.
I wish my lashes looked like this every day! I just love the “open eye” look.

Review: My experience with Yumi Lashes
Even though I'm the biggest fan of eyelash extensions or just long, glamorous and dramatic lashes in general, I have to say that Yumi Lashes was a pleasant surprise.
It not only gives your lashes a lift and makes them look prettier, longer and fuller – the keratin treatment also make your lashes feel better.
I wish my eyelashes could be “Yumilicious” every day. The only downside, I think, is that it is a fairly expensive treatment and that, of course, the result depends on your own lashes. Yumi Lashes works with what you have. My lashes are extremely straight and quite short so my Yumi lashes looked very natural. I used the keratin lash lift mascara each morning and evening and only applied mascara on top for festive occasions, but the result lasted for around six weeks.
After that, I got back to using my eyelash curler and mascara again. So I guess the question is if Yumi Lashes is worth the price?
I would say totally! If you want to enhance your own lashes, skip mascara or just get a beautiful and natural “open eye” look while still taking care of your lashes, I'm sure you will love Yumi Lashes.
