Ultimate Adhesive Guide

The Ultimate Guide to LashBase Adhesives

Question: What is the best lash adhesive?

Answer: There is no such thing!

We get a lot of questions about lash adhesives, and a lot of people want to know which one is ‘the best’. The truth is, there’s no such thing as ‘the best lash adhesive’. Everyone is different.  Every lash artist works differently. Someone who is just starting out won’t use the same adhesive as someone who has been lashing for 10 + years.

It all comes down to the individual lash artist. At LashBase we always advise our customers to choose an adhesive that suits their speed and technique. But to help, we have put together a complete guide to every lash adhesive we have and the benefits of each, to help make the decision process a little easier.

Remember: All of our adhesives offer the same retention, just different curing times. If the adhesive is used correctly (along with the correct application, technique, and aftercare etc.) your clients lash extensions should last as long as the natural lash cycle allows.

Here’s our Lash Adhesive Guide:

Pro

Pro is similar to our Extreme Adhesive. It has a slower curing time of 2-3 seconds but still has a very strong, long-lasting adhesion. This adhesive is perfect if you are working in a lash room that has high temperature or high humidity. Pro is a great choice for those looking to work on their speed and technique.

Color: Black
Curing Time: 2 - 3 Second
Viscosity: Medium
Ideal Humidity: 40 – 60%
Ideal Temperature: 64.4-75.2 Degrees Fahrenheit

 

Extreme

Extreme is a popular choice for lash artists who are just starting out! It has a slightly slower curing time, so is a great choice when you are trying to build up your speed. It’s also a popular choice with our Affiliate Academies, who like to include this adhesive in their kits. It is a great choice for students who are working on their speed and lashing technique.

Colour: Black
Curing Time: 2 - 3 Seconds

Extreme Plus

Extreme Plus is our best-selling adhesive and we’ve sold over 200,000 bottles worldwide. Extreme Plus is best suited to an experienced lash artist who works quickly due to its quick curing time of 1-2 seconds. Extreme Plus can be used for both classic and volume sets and is a firm favourite with our customers.

Color: Black
Curing Time: 1 - 2 Seconds

Crystal Plus

Crystal Plus is perfect for those looking for a strong holding clear adhesive, it’s best suited to a lash technician who considers themselves an expert due to its quick curing time. Crystal Plus is also a good option if you have clients that feel they have a particular allergy to carbon (standard black) adhesives. Sometimes clients can develop an allergy to lash adhesives out of the blue. Cyanoacrylate is most often the reason however some people think it may be caused by the carbon colour used to make the adhesive black. This adhesive is specially formulated to be carbon-free, hence the clear colour. Crystal Plus is just as strong as normal black adhesives with a 1-2 second drying time but is perfect for clients that are sensitive or have allergy issues with Carbon Black.

Curing Time: 1 - 2 Seconds
Viscosity: Thin
Ideal Humidity: 40 – 60%
