I love this! I use the normal DUO adhesive for this so I have to remove it everything I use it. I use about 3-4 per eye and it looks really natural but better than mascara! And removing it is so much easier than mascara! I can reuse them about 2-3 times before they get wonky. Love love love them!!
I love this product, but only use it if you want lashes to last for weeks to over a month! I usually buy the combo pack for long at the fringe and shorter for the inner eyelashes. If applied properly with enough Lashtite adhesive, these lashes are actually very difficult to remove, they are not "easily removed with Lashfree" despite the claim on the package, and you will definitely lose some of your natural lashes when removing them. That said, I love the "pop" they give my eyes. I usually use 12 to 15 per eye, starting in the middle and working out to the edge then inwards. I frequently replenish the adhesive (I use clear, I have read reviews here that the black is easier to work with and better for hold, as if you need more hold!) in foil (new drops) as it dries quite quickly while you are working with it. I use tweezers and hold a small mirror above my eye so I can line them up perfectly as to the angle and placement. If I want maximum hold bond I will place some adhesive under the lash as well later (with tweezers) after they have "cured" to really bond them. I have used as many as 30 or more per eye if I want a dramatic look. If you "seal them" with a coat of waterproof (and it is!) Covergirl Marathon Mascara (the next day after they have totally "cured"), they will really last! I think you can still buy it at target, though it is listed as discontinued (too bad!) As to removal, use the Ardell Lashfree (if you can find it) and they suggest you use an eyeliner brush, I found this did not work well, not enough remover can be applied. If you use Q-tips one under and one over the lash and rub back and forth after letting it initially soak in they will eventually let go usually taking some of your own with them. If you want a maintenance free great look that lasts at least weeks to over a month these are the way to go!
I'm so frustrated! This was my first time using false lashes so I made a few mistakes when I applied them. I tried using the remover that the starter kit comes with & it is not nearly as effective as it needs to be. It is really painful trying to get these things off. I'm now really frustrated & sad because I lost (and am losing) my natural eyelashes in the process. ;(
As for how they look.. They look alright. I prefer the way my eyelashes look when they have mascara on them than how the false lashes look.
PROS: I don't have to wear mascara. CONS: They won't come off & i'm losing my precious eyelashes ;((((( I guess I got what i paid for.
RIP eyelashes 3
I love these :)
Looks very natural and you can create your own look ^_^ even at school :)
AMAZING PRODUCT!!! :) looks natural and lovely long, medium are perfect for daily use :)
If I'm going to buy individual false lashes again, I'll buy these again.
These are a staple in my makeup kit. They're very easy to apply. I took off a lippie because they're hard too find! I wish my local big box store, or even Walgreens or CVS carried them. It's really a pain to get them shipped form the internet all the time.
I searched high and low for knot-free individual falsies and finally went to Sally's (they only sell the knotted kind at Target, Walmart & Walgreens). I use shorts & mediums (longs are much too long unless you have insanely long lashes). I used the DUO individual lash glue to put these on - at first i followed the instructional video on the website that said to dip the lash in glue then brush the dipped end along your own lashes for better bonding but this is a big mistake b/c this glue dries shiny and for the pieces that i did that with look terrible extremely stiff and very shiny...clearly fake. The ones where i didnt follow this technique look much much better.
Overall these lashes are awesome but are a bit tricky. Be careful to apply them to your own lashes and NOT onto your lid, but don't apply them too far from the root or it looks odd as well. If you do it right it looks really nice and natural.
I am really surprised the other reviews on these are so positive - I am tempted to try again - but I spent AGES trying to sort these out, to no avail - the glue kept drying out too quickly so I was running out; I found the tiny tube really fiddly even though I put a couple of drops onto foil like it said to do. When I finally managed to get a few lashes stuck on, and left them to set, they then pulled straight back off with the gentlest pull! And they are supposed to stay put for 2-3 weeks! I probably will try again, maybe with a different glue or something, as I don't like to be beaten :-) but was initially very disappointed with these.
I lost all most of my eyelashes due to illness, and I was wearing strip lashes. Well, that got to be a big pain, and I wanted something a little more permanent. I use this brand and Andrea too; I cannot tell the difference between them. Currently, I am wearing the medium black, and would love to find medium brown. The individual lashes are long wearing, if you use the individual lash glue. Mine usually stay on up to a week. Keep in mind, that you will have to do daily maintenance, because there is fall-off from sleeping. Be sure to buy some extra packs, or you might wake up one day with a fair amount of missing lashes.
Application is easy. Just like anything, the more you do it, the easier it gets. I bought a special tool for application, but I prefer my cheap e.l.f. tweezers, and they work perfect. I find it hard to see the clear glue on a piece of foil, so I use a small piece of cardboard. Wearing the individual lashes opens up my eyes ~ they make my eyes look really big even without eye shadow. Be careful not to apply too many ~ I have done so and when you sleep they get lopsided. Love this lashes! These are a great beauty staple...
