LVL’s – amazing eyelashes at Powder Box Beauty


LVL straightens your natural eyelashes at the root, so unlike a traditional lash perm it creates the effect of longer, lifted lashes in just 40 minutes. They are promoted to stay that way for six to eight weeks with immediate results.. The added lash tint creates a mascara-type effect so you are always ready to go, especially for holidays and swimming when you don’t want to wear make-up all the time.


I headed to PowderBox Beauty in Mill Yard to experience and review this treatment. Unlike a traditional lash perm, LVL Enhance straightens your natural lashes at the root, creating the appearance of longer, thicker lashes so your lashes appear perfect from the moment you wake up. No extensions, no adhesive and no need for mascara so ideal for those seeking a more natural look.

The salon is friendly and buzzing with a great vibe and a fast paced approach but without feeling rushed. The treatment took just 40 minutes but the effects really were instant. It was relaxing and comfortable. The products were gentle and there was no stinging or redness after – no after effects at all just fabulous lashes! – I couldn’t believe the difference.

These natural lashes are promoted as lasting for up to 6-8 weeks and as many treatments I have had have been average at best and never last as long as they say.

So I waited the full 6-8 weeks to see if the treatment lived up to its promise! During this time I went abroad on holiday and swam every day and I can honestly say I was not disappointed. I didn’t need to wear any mascara the whole time, even in the evenings and my lashes looked full and curled and felt amazing. I was so impressed with the LVL’s that I think I am now addicted and cannot wait for my next treatment.


Even now, my lashes still look great and still have the curl and some tint. Previous tints have disappeared within a week. So these really do stay with the lifespan of your lashes.

Little maintenance is required once you leave the salon just brushing them into shape with a tiny lash brush they provide. You can choose the type you want to suit the length of your natural lashes to enhance them as best possible.

I also experienced the the HD style power brows, a technique similar to HD styling but uniquely developed by the salon owner and these too were fabulous and lasted so well. They need maintaining every 4 weeks I would say but the idea is to build on your natural shape more and more each time so not so much waxing and filling with colour for the ‘fake’ look but more about encouraging your own brows to behave and grow a new way!

So my experience of the treatments at Powder Box is that they are a very high quality, reasonably priced from £25 and worth every penny. I would highly recommend the LVL’s for any lashes can be enhanced and made to look fabulous!
