The Difference Between Russian Lashes & Other Eyelashes

The Difference Between Russian Lashes & Other Eyelashes

If you've ever wondered what the difference between Russian lashes and other eyelashes is, we can help.

Ever heard of Russian Eyelashes?

Russian Lashes are traditionally individual eyelash extensions, however you can save money and time by buying Russian strip lashes.

Russian lashes are individually applied to each eyelash in the form of a fan to achieve a fuller look. This can take up to 2 hours but is also the most effective option for a fuller look . In contrast, strip lashes are pre-made strips of synthetic hair that can be applied in seconds and re-used multiple times.

Individual eyelashes are made from synthetic hair that are applied one by one to your natural lash line using a special glue. They are semi-permanent and will last for up to four weeks before needing to be reapplied. They're ideal if you want fuller, longer lashes without having to wear mascara every day.

Strip lashes are made from synthetic hair that's adhered to a strip of plastic. Strip lashes are applied with a special glue, just like the Russian lash extensions, however unlike the individual lash glue, glue for strip lashes typically will last just the day as opposed to weeks. You’re able to pull off strip lashes at the end of the day when you’re finished with the lashes. This will not damage your natural lashes at all.

How long do individual lashes last in comparison to strip lashes?

Typically, Russian lash extensions will last between 2 to 3 weeks. Russian lash extensions are applied by a professional, using professional glue that you’re only able to buy if you’re qualified in the treatment. Often, you will need to have a patch test prior to having lash extensions to check for allergies to the glue.

Strip lashes are slightly different to individual lash extensions. You’re able to remove and re-apply the lashes as you please.

You’re able to re-use our Russian lashes up to 30 times! We have many customers who boats"I have had my strip lashes for about a year now, and they're still going strong".Popular feedback includes, they're not quite as obvious with thin eyeliner on top of them as it's a bit more natural-looking than the individual lashes, which can look fake if you're not careful.
