It’s been a while since I wrote my last blog and I have to admit that I am into IGTV lately so I haven’t been as diligent in actually writing a blog post.
But, here I am writing this long-awaited post for my sugar lash lift experience at Dearest 20 Queen in Tsim Sha Tsui.
This little shop is tucked inside Kwun Fai Building on 8 Granville Road in Tsim Sha Tsui. It is very easy to find doesn’t matter you take the MTR or taxi. The shop owner/beautician Hiube is such a nice lady with a lot of professionalism.
Her shop is petite but I like it that way! Why? Because I know that every time I make a booking with her I will get her to do my lashes, not any other beautician. I think this is one way to ensure I always get the perfect lashes as she gets the style that I want to go for.
She offers quite a few different styles. All you need to communicate your needs with her. I personally prefers to have a more natural style, meaning I don’t want my lashes to be in an L shape or J shape where the angle is too drastic when people look at me from the sides. I want a natural curl shape.
Sugar lash lift not only semi-perm your eye lashes but the treatment also tint your eye lashes, giving it a more full and darker look, making the lashes more visible.
I have very straight hair. If I wash my hair and leave it air dry it will just be super straight like a waterfall. So does my lashes, they are very fine and straight, which is why I wanted to try sugar lash lift. First it takes me quite long to curl my lashes at home in the morning, I have to use an eyelash curler first and then I also need help with a heated curler to set the curls in.
Here is my before treatment picture.
And OMG here is the after treatment photo that the owner Hiube kindly took for me! So much more oomph! Even without mascara, you can clearly see my lashes saying hi to everyone! It just makes me so happy to see my lashes be like this all day.
After the treatment I went to the bathroom inside her salon and I can feel her attention to details towards her customers a lot. Inside it is stocked with some face products, hairdryer, mists, cotton balls, and even toothbrush, etc.
I feel like these kind of small shop deserves more attention that the big chain beauty salon these days. I feel like the chain store in Hong Kong are dominated by only a few brands out there where they just have the money to do a lot of advertising and charges you in a premium price but only delivering OK result. I would much rather discover more small shop where talents are and support the individual shops to flourish.
If you are interested in giving it a try, make sure you make an appointment inadvance. As I already mentioned, she is the one and only beautician there. Her instagram handle is @dearest20queen you can inbox her to make an appointment.

Happy long weekend!
