FREQUENT ASKED QUESTION
Q What are eyelashes made of?
A It is important to know what you are buying on eyelashes. Eyelashes are either made of nylon, plastic or human hair. Material of nylon is soft, light and easily treated to give you the natural curl on the lashes. Plastic eyelashes are stiff and heavier than nylon. So you will feel some weight and look obvious unnatural. Eyelashes made of human hair (sterilised) is light and natural but you need an encouragement to accept the fact of its source. Anyway, you already have a choice of nylon-made eyelashes to look bright and natural. There is claim of lashes made of oxy-fiber. To our knowledge, there is no such raw material made on lashes. Even if it has claimed to exist, we can assure you that the material now made on the eyelashes is in fact nylon.

Q What makes eyelashes wearing a comfortable experience?

- You may be using an expired glue. We advise that you to check for any unpleasant odour or decolouring of the glue. We encourage you to buy eyelashes glue over the counter than relying on complimentary glue in the package as you are not sure how long the glue/eyelashes has been on the rack/market.
- If you have noticed some eyelashes you bought has already an amount of glue on the lashband in order that it will stick on its packaging. This type of glue used may be sensitive to you. We encourage you to buy eyelashes where they are only glued at both ends and not on their lash band. It is worth the value to buy an eyelash where the lashband is in its original and perfectly clean.
- For those who re-use their eyelashes, clean away any dried glue over the lash band before applying new glue. This dried glue may have collected dust while wearing and may cause itchiness to human skin.
- For a reason, you may have an open wound on your lash line may or may not be visible to naked eyes, which caused irritaton when applied.

We offer an eyelash case for your convenience. Visit our order_accessories page for detailed information.
