JAMAICAN singer and season five winner of The Voice Tessanne Chin is set to walk the Grammy red carpet today wearing a pair of fluttery, 24-karat-gold-dipped eyelash extensions from Lash Dip, the Los Angeles Times reported yesterday.
According to the newspaper, the US$5,000 gold lashes were designed by Lash Dip's director of innovation, Gina Mondragon, and are being offered exclusively at Jose Eber Salon in Beverly Hills. They last up to two weeks, compared with regular eyelash extensions from Lash Dip, which last up to a month.
"We were able to create a system to infuse pure 24-karat gold — the only gold pure enough for the face — into our semi-permanent lash formula and create a show-stopping look only real gold can attain," the Los Angeles Times quotes Mondragon as saying.
"The gold lash application process takes up to three hours. First, Mondragon applies silk inserts to thicken the lash line, then she paints each individual lash with Gold Dip (24k gold leaf) to get a shimmery, gilded effect that just screams awards season," the LA Times article said.
According to Melissa Magsaysay, the writer of the article, the gold eyelashes "certainly should be a stand-out look" on Chin, "with her usually bold makeup and edgy hair".
