Ah, Eylure! The iconic lash brand is beloved by makeup artists and beauty gurus alike. But are the lashes vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and reusable? That’s what we’re here to answer. Let’s look at all things Eylure so you can decide on the best lashes for your needs and ethical views.
How Eylure began
The Eylure story began in the 1940s Britain with the Aylott brothers. The brothers worked as makeup artists (MUAs) in the film industry in Britain. But because they were unhappy with the quality of beauty products at the time, they started their own company, Eylure, and the rest is, as they say, lash history.
Today, Eylure is as popular as ever and constantly pushes the boundaries of false lash technology with a wide range of top-quality lashes. From dramatic and voluminous to wispy and natural – there’s something for everyone!
Are Eylure lashes cruelty-free?
Since 1996, Eylure has been one of the world’s leading lash brands; over the years, they have maintained their commitment to never test any of their products on animals. In fact, PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) lists them as a cruelty-free brand that does not test on animals. So rest assured, when you buy Eylure lashes, you can be confident that no animals suffer in developing or manufacturing their products.
Are Eylure lashes vegan?
In addition to being cruelty-free, many of Eylure’s lashes are vegan-friendly. We have a unique vegan-friendly collection where you’ll find all the Eylure lashes made without animal ingredients or byproducts.
What does vegan-friendly mean for beauty products?
Vegan-friendly means all ingredients and raw materials used to make the product are plant-based, not derived from animals or any animal by-product.
Some companies make their products using beeswax, silk, carmine, snail snot (snail mucin), and other animal-based ingredients. Eylure is committed to not using any products that contain any animal products, which means you won’t find snail snot in their lashes.
Are Eylure lashes synthetic?
Most of Eylure’s lashes are synthetic (also known as “plastic”), made from a special blend of materials designed to replicate the look and feel of natural hair. They are 100% cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, so you can be confident that no animals were harmed in making these lashes.
Are Eylure lashes reusable?
Yes, with proper care and cleaning, all Eylure lashes can be reused up to three or four times before needing to be replaced (not pre-glued lashes). We recommend using an oil-free cleanser on the lash band after each use to ensure they stay in top condition.
Proper care will also help them last longer, so you’ll get more wear from your false lashes. Read more about lash care.

Are false eyelashes recyclable?
Since synthetic eyelashes are made of polypropylene plastic, it is hard to recycle the product. However, you can extend their life with proper care and cleaning.
Here’s our step-by-step guide on looking after your Eylure false eyelashes.
- Make sure you have clean hands.
- Remove any leftover eyelash glue by gently rubbing the lash band with your finger.
- Cleanse the lash band with an oil-free cleanser or makeup remover.
- Place the lashes back on the tray they came in and leave them to dry.
By following these steps, you can extend the life of your false eyelashes. However, you can’t reuse pre-glued lashes; these are designed to be used once.
Magnetic lashes are another alternative for those looking for reusable lashes. Magnetic false eyelashes are attached to the lash line with tiny magnets, and they are lightweight so that you can wear them all day long. As they don’t require glue, you don’t have to worry about damaging your natural eyelashes or the environment.
Here are our favourite Eylure magnetic lashes and liners:
