With the gazillion different kinds of false lashes you see on the market nowadays, it is no surprise that you feel lost. But fear not, Phyllis to the rescue!

Individual

Individual lashes are basically strands of synthetic hair that you place in between your own lashes to create a fuller look. They normally come in a pack and they can create the most natural-looking AND the most dramatic look, depending on how you apply them.

A common misconception is that individual lashes are the same as lash extension. But unlike lash extension, individual lashes are applied with the same glue as strip lashes and need to be removed by the end of the night.

Strip

Strip lashes are a complete set of lashes on a strip that you place along the lash line. They normally require trimming and are less natural looking than individual lashes. You can apply strip lashes with a pair of tweezers or a clip made specifically for it.
