Are Reusable False Eyelashes Good

You might recently have bought one pair of fake eyelashes but you were wondering if you could reuse those or not? Well, the answer is not that easy as it seems and is more complicated than it meets the eye. The primary factor here depends is what type of lash you have purchased and the quality of it.

Extension Lashes

If you recently had gone to a salon and done eyelash extensions there, then sad to tell you but those are definitely not reusable false eyelashes.

Individual flares, clusters, or lashes which was applied at home

You can individually buy false lashes or clusters or flares just so that you can apply them at home. While applying the individual false ones at home, you might slough off when you are wearing them and this can turn the lash extensions hard to preserve for future use. Theoretically, you will be able to use the flares and clusters, practically it depends on the type of glue or lashes you are using and their quality. Flares or clusters can only be reused when they do not fall out on their own and they are kept clean after wearing them. Always remember one thing that if the product is cheap or inexpensive, then the manufacturer had planned usage for only once or twice for the product.

Strip Lashes:

When you are considering strip lashes, you need to remember a couple of things like the quality and comfort of them.
