I’ve been on the hunt for some self-adhesive lashes lately. I found a selection of Ardell at my local H.E.B grocery store (which is a weirdly great place to go for lashes -big selection) and so I picked some out to try.
The reason I wanted to try them is because they seem super easy! Just stick them on and go, no fooling with glue or anything.
I picked out 105’s and 110’s. I like both of these styles and often wear them in the non-self-adhesive version.
So these lashes have a glue strip that is very sticky and come along with an extra glue strip in the pack. I immediately noticed that the glue strip was really thick.
I tried out the 110’s because it was daytime. I feel like the 105’s are more suited for nighttime (on me) since they are more dramatic.
I usually trim the lashes a bit, sometimes they are a little long on me, so I trimmed them and then placed them on. I tried to get them as close to my natural lashline as I could, but yeah, that band is super thick.
It took awhile to get them positioned, I’m not gonna lie. It took me a lot longer than regular lashes. The glue band is tacky and sticks and then when I was trying to press it down it would get stuck to my fingers. It took some patience, but I got them on.
I applied them around 9 a.m., so they looked good for about 2 hours. I did check in the mirror a couple of times and I couldn’t get over how thick and fake the band looked. It’s also a shiny band so it was really obvious (to me) that I was wearing false lashes. So around lunchtime they started lifting, and long story short, I ended up sticking glue on them and putting them back on.
These were a fail. Applying lash glue is sooo much easier, and they never lift on me with regular glue. I just thought I would give em a try!
I am usually very pleased with the regular Ardell lashes. They are around $4 and always look great. I like to use the Duo Brush on Lash Glue with them.
Have you guys tried self-adhesive lashes?
