Duo Adhesive ($6-8 depending on size). I’ve used both the clear and dark tone versions. Both versions work amazingly well. The only difference between the white/clear and the dark tone is that the clear is a white colored glue that dries almost clear. The dark tone is a greyish colored glue that dries almost black. I prefer the dark done if I’m using black eyeliner because it blends with the eyeliner. If I’m using colored eyeliner, I use the white/clear version.
The glue lasts all day and won’t come off until you remove it. The glue becomes tacky very quickly (less than a minute) so you don’t have to wait around waiting for it to dry. My only complaint is that I wish the nozzle to the tube was smaller because if you squeeze too quickly, a giant glob of glue will come oozing out. Duo Adhesive is my choice of eyelash glue.
You can buy Duo Adhesive at drugstores, MAC, and online.
NYX Fabulous Lashes ($4.50) NYX Fabulous Lashes comes in 50 different styles ranging from chic everyday glamour to funky colors, glitter and crystal. Top makeup artists and models rely on NYX eyelashes to add glamour to fashion shows, photo shoots and the red carpet. Made from natural hair to high-quality synthethic fibers, NYX lashes are comfortable and safe to wear.
I am lovin NYX Fabulous Lashes! They are a tad bit more expensive than my other favorite, Ardell, but I think they are worth it. I love that I can reuse them over and over and they never lose their shape. A great way for me to get my money’s worth. I find the lashes very light, but yet very easy to control. NYX lashes come in so many different styles and lengths that you’re bound to find one that fits your needs. A great buy and highly recommended.
E.L.F Natural Lash Kit ($1) No mess lash beautification is here! Get those lengthy full lashes for any occasion, any day! Easy application and comfort grip gel allows for multiple uses so you can repeatedly achieve those batty lashes that will make any guy swoon.
These are not the best lashes. To me, they are rather flimsy and not flexible. Because of this, they are difficult to control. I noticed if/when I flexed the lashes a little bit, it put a kink in it. A kink that wouldn’t go away. It’s like bending a piece of wire. Once you bend it in one direction, there is no way to bend it back. That kink is there forever. You know what that means for the lashes right? One time use only! I can’t complain too much because the lashes did cost only $1. If you do manage to get the lashes on without deforming them, they feel very light and look natural. Would I repurchase? Chances are no. Applying false lashes is difficult enough. I don’t want to have to deal with lashes that make applying false lashes even more difficult.
Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Glue On Eyelashes ($5.99) Glamorize your eyes! Instantly get beautiful sexy lashes in a snap with REVLON Fantasy Lengths™ Maximum Wear Glue On eyelashes. Glue included.
I actually tried 3 of the Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Glue On Eyelashes (photos below). Each package comes with instructions, lashes, and glue. The lashes are really light and don’t weigh down your eyes. I could hardly even tell I had them on! The band is also really thin, which I love. It blends so nicely with my lash line. However, they are a tad bit flimsy so it was a bit difficult to apply. Also, I accidentally bent the lash band too much and couldn’t reshape it. All 3 false eyelashes are very natural looking. Perfect for the daytime and easily adjustable for a night out. All you have to do is add a couple of coats of mascara and you’re good to go. Lush is perfect for the Cat Eye Look, because they are individual lashes. The glue is a tad watery but dries quickly and clear so you don’t have to worry about the dry time and a white strip of glue. The lashes are a one-time-use deal, because once you remove the lashes from your eyes, they are really bent out of shape and extremely difficult to reshape. Out of the 3 false eyelashes, my favorite style was Flirty. I recommend you try Revlon Fantasy Lengths. Overall, they are pretty good drugstore false eyelashes.

I personally like 109 and 110 the best for an enhanced natural look. I’ve never had a problem with them and they are durable. Ardell are my favorite false eyelash brand. It’s affordable and there are so many different lashes to choose from. I highly recommend getting the starter kit. It comes with lashes, glue, and lash applicator.
