Frequently Asked Questions
What is the shelf life for glues?
Our glues have a six month shelf life from manufacturing date and up to eight weeks once opened.We always recommend to make a note on the date you open a bottle, so you always remember to change your glue on time.
Which glue is suitable for sensitive eyes?
All eyelash glues on the market contain the same active ingredient - cyanoacrylate. If the client has ever experienced strong allergic reaction to cyanoacrylate fumes (swollen itchy eyelids), more likely that they will experience the same reaction to any cyanoacrylate base adhesive (including sensitive glues). If the client experienced mild reaction (watery eyes, redness), you could try switch to Velvet Adhesive as this glue contains smaller percentage of cyanoacrylate and less likely to cause a reaction.
How should I store my glue?
We would always recommend to store your glue in a cupboard out of direct sunlight. You could also store your glue in our airtight container. Some lash techs do store their glue in a box with rice, as rice absorbs any potential moisture in the air.
Which glue is the fastest?
Which glue would you recommend for beginners?
We would recommend either Velvet or Lady Bond. We put lady bond glue in our Foundation kits. They both take around 1-3 seconds drying time, which is ideal for beginners who are still developing their technique.
What glue is best for me?
I need a glue with low fumes, which is best?
Quicker drying adhesives may have stronger fumes compared to slower drying glues.Our glue with lowest flumes is Velvet.
Do you have a sensitive glue?
No, as the main bonding ingredient is cyanoacrylate which is present in all glues. Slower drying glues have less cyanoacrylate but may still cause irritation and allergic reaction. Our adhesive with the smallest cyanoacrylate percentage is Velvet.
My fans are closing, is my glue too slow for me?
My glue doesn't dry, why?
Your room conditions may be affecting the polymerisation process of the adhesive. We would suggest trying to increase the humidity in the room for faster adhesive polymerisation. Alternatively, you can use Booster on the lash strip and on natural lashes to increase the speed of polymerisation.
My glue appears clear, is this normal?
Every glue should be shaken for at least 1 minute prior use for the ingredients to mix. Ensure you shake the glue each time you open it and refresh your glue drop.
My glue became gloopy, why?
Ensure your glue is not expired and that it was stored correctly in a cool, dark place, away from humidity and direct sunlight. Ensure that no residue glue in the nozzle has been pushed back into the glue bottle - this may ruin the rest of the glue. Wiping the nozzle with wet wipe will cause glue in the bottle becoming gloopy. Not closing the lid correctly straight after pouring out the drop of glue can cause the glue become gloopy. Glue that has been opened for longer than 8 weeks is prone to becoming gloopy.
How do I clean my glue nozzle?
Use a small piece of wax strip to wipe off the glue from the nozzle after every use. Keep the bottle in an upright position and squeeze the bottle gently to get glue residue out of the nozzle.
My glue nozzle got blocked, what do I do?
My client had an allergic reaction, can I do their lashes again?
No, because if they develop an allergic reaction once they are more prone to develop it in the future.
What are eyelashes made from?
All lashes are made from synthetic material so are completely cruelty free and hypoallergenic, they are soft and lovely to work with.
What is the difference between Mayfair Mink and Chelsea Silk?
The mink lashes are made from the same synthetic material as the silk, meaning that they are hypoallergenic, hold their curl perfectly and last equally well!
The main difference is in the way the lashes are finished - the Mink lashes have a shinier appearance than the silk. The strip which the Mink come on is also a little bit less sticky, so some lash technicians prefer this for creating fans, depending on their favoured fanning method. For classic lashes, Mink and Silk are both well loved by lash artists and their clients alike.
What are the best eyelashes to buy?
The best lashes for you will depend a little bit on you preferences and the look you are hoping to achieve, but in quite general terms our best selling classics are: 0.12, 0.15 and 0.18
For Volume sets, our 0.05, 0.06 and 0.07 are well loved! Or if you're after those super fine lashes for mega volume looks we have 0.03 and 0.04.
Almost all lashes are available in Mixed and Single Lengths trays, so that you can either try out a bit of everything, or get all of the lengths you love best and use the most. We have a few different curls on offer, but the best sellers are C, CC and D curls across all ranges.
What is the maximum thickness you would recommend to create fans?
The heavier the lash used to create the fan could cause damage to the clients natural lash.We would suggest using lashes 0.07 or lower depending on the fan, whether it is 2D or 6D.
If you are creating 2D - 3D fans 0.07 would be ideal.
If you are creating 5D - 6D fans possibly use 0.03 thickness.
What lashes and tweezers are best for volume?
We also sell easy fanning lashes so the strips are mixed lengths, allowing you to create a more wispy effect for your client.

How much is shipping to me?
I have been charged custom/duty fees in addition to shipping, why?
International customs offices will claim tax on parcels imported from EU countries, which the recipient is responsible for paying. These charges depend on the individual package as it arrives in customs, therefore London Lash are unable to advise what the fee may be.
If you are placing an order from outside the EU, your order may be subject to customs and import duties. London Lash Pro has no control over these charges and we can't tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for more information on the current charges.

Is it safe to apply lashes to pregnant clients?
This is something which is down to the individual salon/lash technician/client - but basically it’s a bit of a risk as in the event of an allergic reaction, the client wouldn’t be able to have any medicine to reduce this.
