Strip Lash Adhesive Guide
As well as there being numerous different pairs of false eyelashes on offer on our website, we also stock an impressive selection of high quality strip lash adhesives. Available from top-selling brands such as Ardell, DUO, and Eylure, our lash adhesives each provide a long-lasting, firm hold of your favourite lashes.
Whether you prefer a clear tone strip lash adhesive, one with a brush on applicator or a quick setting formula, there is definitely a strip lash glue to suit your individual needs.
Things to consider when selecting a strip lash adhesive:
- Formula – it’s important to always check the ingredients listed on any lash adhesive you are going to use, particularly if you have any allergies or skin sensitivities
- Patch testing – before applying your lashes or using any adhesive, always carry out a patch test to prevent the risk of an adverse reaction to the glue
- Brush on or bottle – there are brush on strip lash adhesives available as well as larger tubes depending on your personal preference
- Tone/finish – you can purchase either clear or dark tone strip lash adhesive
It is key that you carry out a patch test prior to using any kind of false lash adhesive. Patch tests ensure you don’t suffer from an adverse reaction, and allow you to see whether a particular formula will suit your skin.
To carry out a patch test, simply use a cotton bud to distribute a small amount of product to the skin behind your ear. Leave the adhesive on the skin for at least 24 hours, and if no irritation or reaction occurs, then you are then able to continue with the full lash application using the adhesive you have tested.
Brush on strip lash adhesives are ideal for those that aren’t fully confident when it comes to applying their lashes, or those that simply require a quick and easy way to apply glue without making any unnecessary mess.
Tubes of adhesive can be tricky to use, and you can sometimes end up distributing too much product, leading to wastage. Brush on adhesives feature a thin, flexible wand or brush style applicator that allows you to evenly and precisely apply a thin layer of glue to your lash band. Brush on adhesives are also perfect for on the go as you don’t require cotton buds to apply them, and they have a secure screw top lid that means no spillages.
Not only are many of our brush on strip lash adhesives available in both clear and dark tone, we have also recently stocked the impressive new DUO 2-in-1 strip lash adhesive.
This unique product boasts a double ended design that consists of their bestselling dark formula on one end, and the clear formula on the other end. Each end also features a brush on applicator, meaning you can have the best of both of DUO’s well-loved adhesives all in one product.
Top brush on adhesives:
- DUO Brush On Strip Lash Adhesive (available in both Clear and Dark Tone)
- Ardell Brush On Clear Strip Lash Adhesive
- House of Lashes Adhesive (available in both Clear and Dark Tone)
- DUO 2-in-1 Brush On Adhesive
If you require a larger amount of strip lash adhesive due to wearing fake eyelashes regularly, or if you are a beauty professional, then a tube style adhesive is the best pick for you. Available from popular brands DUO and Ardell, tube strip lash adhesives ensure you get more product for your money, and they are also great for stocking up.
Tube adhesives take a little more time and patience to use in comparison to a brush on design, however, you just need to distribute a small amount of glue onto a piece of tin foil and use a cotton bud to apply a thin layer to your lash band.
Clear or dark tone
One of the first, most important things to consider when it comes to selecting a strip lash adhesive, is the finish/tone of the product. Many strip lash adhesives come in a clear/white finish, or a dark one. Clear tone is arguably the most popular choice of the two as it dries transparent allowing for a seamless blend with your natural lashes, and means it is undetected if any gets onto the skin.
If you have naturally dark, thick lashes then choosing a dark strip lash adhesive is a good choice, it also works similarly to eyeliner adding enhanced definition at the lash line, so if you are a regular lash wearer and feel comfortable applying them, then try a dark adhesive for a more dramatic finish.
