Duo Eyelash Adhesive

August 3, 2009

My sister referred me to this brand of eyelash adhesive and swore it’s the best one out there.

I purchased the Dark Tone one at my local beauty supply store assuming that it would blend in better with dark lashes as it claimed. But, it’s actually an opaque gray color, which does not appear natural against black lashes at all. And, when I tried to adjust the placement of the false lash (hard to get it perfect the first time ALL the time), it left a colored residue behind, making the first attempt of application obvious.

Pro’s: Waterproof (hooray for teary brides!) and resilient. Even the hard to stick ends stayed put for hours. I found that it worked significantly more effectively than those mini glues that are often packaged with false lashes.

Con’s: Dark Tone is a medium off-color gray tone that is not invisible. I think it’s best to stick to the clear version. Though lashes are easy to remove, it can leave residue on eyelids, real eyelashes, and false lashes.
