Did you know that the women of this world have always longed to be blessed with long and charming lashes?
But the truth is not, it is completely unfair, not everyone has very long, curvy and natural and charming lashes.
Well, if you have the same desires as me and aren’t endowed with long lashes, there are a few solutions?!!
Difference between eyelash extensions and false lashes
EYELASH EXTENSIONS VS FALSE EYELASHES!
Your mind will be blown away after this post, seriously, I’m not kidding.
When it comes to these two things, many people are still confused, in truth, these are two completely different product lines.
Eyelash extensions are when individual eyelashes are attached to the lashes with special glue. Individual lashes are placed on your own lashes.
False eyelashes are strip lashes that you can buy at the place of manufacture of this product or any cosmetics store.
But basically… they’re all ‘fake’. They are guaranteed to give you a great look if you don’t want to wear mascara every day.
Below is an article based on the real experience of users who have used both of these product lines, including our products.

What are false eyelashes?
Eyelashes, also known as false lashes, are non-permanent false hairs that are attached to an eyelash that is then glued to your eyelashes with glue to add more thickness to the lashes.
False eyelashes, which are strip-shaped lashes, are attached to the ends of the lashes using eyelash glue.
They are quite light in weight and range from looking very natural (whispering) to very full (seductive).
False lashes only bring you amazing lashes within once, it’s perfect for a special event.
They are easy to wear on a daily basis, and they usually take about 5 minutes to apply (once you have mastered them).
Alternatively, you can apply mascara to the top if you want it to curl even more …
Tip: If you take care to use and remove them from your eyes, you can reuse 2-3 times.
Pros of strip false eyelashes

The glue can easily get on your eyelashes or in your eyes
Natural lashes can fall out if not applied properly
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent false lashes that are applied by an lash technician to each of your natural lashes to add more volume.
Eyelash extensions are great because you understand “I woke up like this”
You don’t need to do much more each morning, at the most just brush them with mascara, so they don’t get tangled.
In exchange for the best of nature, they need a lot of protection.
Returning usually occurs every 2 – 3 weeks, and they can range around $100 – $150 for full sets and $40 – $75 for fills.
Also, for a full set, it will normally take between 60 – 90 minutes to apply and between 20 – 45 minutes for filling depending on the degree.
Eyelash extensions are a great option if you’re a busy person, or if you’re just traveling.
Some people complain that when they get extensions, it damages their real eyes and eyelashes.
In fact, if done properly, the extensions won’t harm your lashes, but you have to be careful about sleeping (not tummy) and when removing eye makeup, as any irritation will lash fall out faster.
Tip: If you decide to get extensions and the technician wants to cut off your real lashes to make them longer or says you have to. Best to ‘run’.
Seriously, run now, don’t cut your real lashes! It is taboo.

7 differences between eyelash extensions and false eyelashes
Applying false eyelashes or eyelash extensions is an option to make our eyes look more attractive with full lashes.
Although both can achieve a similar result, they are two very different services.
Here are 7 differences between false lashes and eyelashes to help you decide which one is more suitable.
1. At home and professional
You can apply false lashes yourself by applying glue and placing it right on your natural lashes.
You need to practice a little bit but it should be fine after you try it a few times, then in just 5 minutes you can put on your own false eyelashes to enjoy the party.
Eyelash extensions, on the other hand, have to be done by a specialist at a salon.
Unlike false eyelashes, the eyelash extensions ideally should be glued one by one over existing actual eyelashes.
The entire process can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, depending on how many lashes you require.
2. False eyelashes can be more expensive in the long run
False eyelashes can be bought almost anywhere, from offline at supermarkets or online.
You can refer to false eyelash products that we are selling online here.
On average, retail prices for false lashes range from $5 to $25 depending on the type, brand and quantity.
When using false lashes, you cannot go to bed with them, you need to change it daily (it can cause eye infection if you go to bed with them).
For extensions, it will typically cost around $100, with the lowest being $40 for the next recharge.
However, if you are thinking of getting long lashes for the long term, eyelash extensions could be a better value for money than false lashes as you won’t need to buy a new pair of false lashes to wear daily.
3. False eyelashes are heavier than eyelash extensions
It’s all going to be false lashes, but in between we found that false lashes were heavier than eyelash extensions.
The reason is that the false lashes are made from heavier and lower quality man-made fibers, eyelash extensions.
And about eyelash extensions, they are closer to human eyelashes in terms of style and quality.
You hardly feel like you’re using eyelash extensions.
4. Eyelash extensions require more maintenance than false eyelashes
When using false lashes, you can easily remove them and as long as you do not rub your eyes while wearing them.
When using extensions, stay away from oily cleaners or cotton pads, which can damage your extensions.
Also, only use clean mascara after eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extensions may touch water, but be careful to avoid water for the first 2 days after extensions so that the eyelash glue can stick strong to your real lashes.
5. Six weeks and once
When handled with care, eyelash extensions are slightly more durable and lasting than false lashes.
Each extension can last up to 6 weeks (if you use it carefully)
False lashes are born to get you the best out of within once before they lose shape and no longer stick well.
If you are a careful person you can use it again 2-3 times.
6. Eyelash extensions look more natural
As its name suggests, falsies look fake.
Although there are natural-looking styles, eyelash extensions almost always look more natural.
Since it is attached directly to your real lashes, it’s more natural than use false lashes.
False eyelashes are usually made of less quality material, so they don’t look more natural.
If you are using false eyelashes, do not worry too much, use the right amount and length, you will look like you were born from nature with long, curled lashes.
7. Eyelash extensions are more convenient
For everyday life, getting extensions is more convenient when you go to the salon once or every few months, and you’re ready for the next fix.
With false lashes, you have to work hard every day before leaving for work.
Even though you have to sit for a few hours in the salon to get your extensions done, in the long run it will cut down on your prep time quite a bit, especially if you’re someone who is “late to work” frequently.
Eyelash extensions or false lashes for wedding
As mentioned above, attractive false lashes are cheaper and temporary.
However, when it comes to sheer beauty, false eyelashes are not a rival to eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extensions will make your lashes look fuller, but the result will look more natural and you won’t need to wear mascara.
No one at your wedding can tell you artificially upgraded them, whether in person or in photos, but they’ll definitely notice how great you look.
The best part is they won’t do any damage to your real lashes.
This means you can crash after the party when you want without any extra work!

Eyelash extensions give you a more natural look with all the improvements with less work to do after.

Eyelashes extensions vs false lashes, which is better
Honestly, both are great for different reasons.
If you are traveling or have a busy schedule and don’t want to worry about makeup, extensions are a great option, especially with very natural makeup.
However, false lashes are easier to apply and you can choose from when you want for a more glamorous or natural look.
