Last week I met a high-powered executive who told me that she can’t be bothered with creams, potions, and all the hype of makeup. She claims that her only indulgence is a weekly deep-conditioning treatment and that her total primping time is 15 minutes (shower included).

I almost believed her until she took off her sunnies and revealed a set of shiny, long lashes. I asked her if they were extensions, and she said, "Yes, $300 and two hours will get you this low-maintenance look." We both laughed, but clearly she was embarrassed.

I see nothing wrong with getting eyelash extensions — especially not after my experience with them. They last long, they look beautiful, and you never ever have to worry about applying or taking of your mascara. If you can afford it, I say why not? What's your take on eyelash extensions?
