Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions vs Individual Eyelashes

‘Individual Eyelashes’ are synthetic lashes that are stacked one on top of the other and attached at the base, often with a knot to allow for fast and easy adhesion. They are typically NOT just one synthetic eyelash like eyelash extensions. Typically there are three individual eyelashes in each grouping with the longest on the bottom and the shortest on the top attached together. Like flares, individual eyelashes can be attached to either the skin, if they are knotted, or the natural eyelashes.

The temporary adhesive used with individual eyelashes can come loose due to perspiration from heat, exercising, dancing or doing any strenuous activity, creating a potentially embarrassing situation. The weight of an individual eyelash added to the eye can feel heavy and weary the lid. Individual eyelash adhesive, which is attached directly to the skin, is difficult to remove and can irritate the eye and tear ducts during both application and removal.

Contact lens wearers should avoid individual lashes as the temporary adhesive used will destroy their lenses should it come in contact with them at any time.

Because the individual eyelash adhesive is applied to the skin, there is the possibility of an allergic reaction and an increased risk of infection. If used frequently, individual eyelashes can cause irreparable damage to the natural lashes and cause them to fall out prematurely. Long-term use of individual lashes can lead to permanent lash baldness caused by hair follicle blockage or even infections.

What are the biggest differences?

Compared to individual eyelashes, Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions provide a completely natural look. Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash extensions are virtually weightless and feel completely natural.

Unlike individual lashes, Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions offer a semi-permanent adhesive, and since the lashes are applied one lash extension to one natural eyelash, the eyelash extensions only fall off when the natural lash falls due to its natural growth cycle.
