Beauty inventions are the most exciting as they can make your life easier, better and more functional. The toxic ingredients, irritants and formulas tested on animals are not only super outdated, they’re just not right and good for you! One of the best beauty inventions that has been revolutionary is an adhesive eyeliner! Lash glue is out, this new non-toxic and easy solution is in!
WHAT IS AN ADHESIVE EYELINER
If you’ve ever used and applied false eyelashes, you probably know that the process is quite unpleasant. The lash glue that often comes with the eyelashes is hard to work with, stinks, includes ingredients that are impossible to pronounce and it often even ruins the false eyelashes in the process of application! An absolute nightmare!
Adhesive eyeliner is a felt tip eyeliner which activates its adhesive properties by application of pressure onto the lash line. It basically creates a ‘sticky’ line in the place where you’ll be applying the false eyelashes. This makes the process of the application of falsies ultra easy; think of the eyeliner as a template of where your lashes will go. Additionally, the adhesive eyeliner doesn’t contain harmful chemicals or irritating ingredients, so it won’t harm your eyes or damage your natural eyelashes.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN ADHESIVE EYELINER
What exactly is in the adhesive eyeliner that makes it different from the traditional lash glue? The active ingredient in adhesive eyeliner is Acrylates Copolymer, a non toxic, paraben free PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive). It’s a non reactive ingredient which forms a stickiness when pressure is applied, bonding the adhesive with a surface. The pressure sensitive adhesive creates a durable hold which will stick your lashes on and hold them all day long.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASH GLUE AND ADHESIVE EYELINER
Lash glue on the other hand contains ingredients that are just downright toxic. Ingredients such as formaldehyde (classified as a carcinogen) and latex which can cause allergic reactions or even eye irritation/infection. Your eyes can swell up, become itchy and it can even damage your natural eyelashes as well as your eyes. The traditional lash glue is one of the most dangerous and toxic beauty products on the market due to the mentioned chemical ingredients. Compared to adhesive eyeliner that contains non-toxic and paraben free adhesive - the lash glue should just never be your option anymore!
HOW TO USE AN ADHESIVE EYELINER
- Firstly, pick your eyelashes. Whether you’re using strip lashes or individual ones, prepare them and put them aside. If you’re using strip eyelashes, cut them to fit your eye shape.
- Apply the adhesive eyeliner along your lash line like you would apply a standard liquid eyeliner. Feel free to wing it out.
- Apply a little more eyeliner in the inner and outer corners of your eyes for an extra hold of the lashes.
- Wait 20 seconds before applying the false eyelashes. The liner will become perfectly sticky for the application.
- Apply the lashes on top of the eyeliner; start with the inner corners applying gentle pressure.
- Ta-da! Your lashes are now on and secure all day/night long!
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAGNETIC EYELINER AND ADHESIVE EYELINER
The great thing about the adhesive eyeliner is that you can use it with any strip lashes or even individual lashes you’d like. It will stick them on top and hold them on, you can use them multiple times as well as the adhesive doesn’t damage the falsies.
Magnetic eyeliner and lashes on the other hand need to be used together. The magnetic eyeliner only works with magnetic eyelashes and vice versa. Also, the magnets can make your eyelashes look quite clunky and can be quite visible on the eye. The adhesive eyeliner is on the other hand very seamless and natural.
The magnetic eyeliner contains iron oxide which is difficult to remove and it’s not considered safe to wear on a daily basis. Also there is risk of eyelid irritation or even infection with the use of magnetic eyeliner.
HOW TO REMOVE THE ADHESIVE EYELINER
Adhesive eyeliner compared to everything else is the safest option for your eyes and eyelashes! It’s safe to use daily as it’s gentle enough and easy to remove.
We recommend using an oil based makeup remover which breaks down the eyeliner and makes the removal process extremely easy and quick. However, feel free to use any of your standard eye makeup remover.Gently hold the remover around the eye area which helps the eyeliner to melt and then easily swipe all residue away.

I am looking for eyeliner /shadow that adheres to the eyelid, also I’m a contact lens wearer so I’m very wary of chemicals . The stickers for uplifting your hooded eyes are brilliant but I’d like something similar for colour . Do you do such a thing .
