Shortly after the report of NÉW Lounge flying in to China from Manila to retouch Heart's eyelash extensions, the brand reached out to Preview.ph to clarify that they actually paid for their own airfare to cover for the trip: "The decision to fly to China came very easy for us, it was the least we could do for all of [Heart's] generosity in letting everyone know about us," NÉW Lounge's statement reads. "We immediately booked [and] paid for our trip in full support for someone who has not only become very dear to us, but has been an avid supporter of our brand. That's how we show our love."

If you’ve been watching Heart Evangelista's Instagram stories, you’ll know that the actress is currently in China for a secret project. You would also know how much she loves her lash extensions, which usually requires touch-ups after a month or two. So how is she keeping her set looking fresh without flying out? Find out below!
Heart’s go-to place for lash extensions, NÉW Lounge, flew a team from Manila all the way to China to touch up her eyelashes! She posted a video of the process on her IG stories, writing, "The highlight of my long day. Thank you @newlounge.ph family for flying all the way to China to retouch my lashes! You guys are simply the BEST."
In an exclusive interview with Preview, NÉW Lounge reveals, "Heart maintains her [eyelash extensions] every two to three weeks...But since she's been away for a while now, we know that she will need her touch-up anytime soon."
They checked in with Heart about her lashes via Instagram DM, and Heart joked about "almost" wanting to fly in a lash-retoucher to China—"She was just joking around...until we started talking about it for real. Apparently, she was serious!"
A week after the exchange, their team flew to China for the touch-up. "We just want to show our support to our muse," admits the brand. "And we can't wait for her to reveal what she [has] been up to here. Heart's trust means the world to us and we are so ready to support her in one of the biggest projects in her career."
After the procedure, Heart shared the finished product. A fresh set, indeed!
