You spend a lot of money on a new eyelash extension adhesive, and it doesn't work! Your clients come back days later with all their lashes GONE! Or you are working, and the eyelash extension glue dries so slowly that you want to cry! Are you struggling to find the best eyelash glue that lasts for weeks? Has this ever happened to you guys? If so, what did you do?

It happened to me multiple times, with hundreds of go eyelash extension glue that I tried. Eventually, I tested the glue I used in numerous conditions.

Every eyelash extension adhesive has a specific set of environmental conditions in which it performs best. Almost all of the time, it's between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit with a 40 to 60 percent humidity level.

If the temperature falls outside of specified ranges by even 1°C, your glue will behave, look, and perform differently and adversely. All you have to do now is bring your adhesive back up to room temperature and shake it thoroughly.

I have been using our ThousandLashes’ Ultra Crystal Bond and ThousandLashes’ Clear Glue.

I have personally found that these two eyelash extension adhesives have incredible retention. They work best with 25 – 45% humidity and a temperature of 60 – 73F. Clear glue is an excellent alternative for those with very sensitive eyes or allergies to carbon black.

There are a lot of reasons that can affect the lash glue to work properly, but there are ways how to avoid it:

  1. Before you start your fill, shake your eyelash extension glue bottle. It is necessary to shake the glue to properly mix all the glue ingredients.
  2. How to use your eyelash extension glue properly? When dispensing a glue drop during the fill, do not contact the surface directly.
  3. Clean the nozzle properly with clean wipes after use. 
  4. Close the lid tightly and adequately.
  5. Keep it at room temperature. 


Now, it's also equally important to adjust the temperature and humidity in your lash. If it is too cold, you can adjust the heating mildly and see how your adhesive will react.



"What is the best eyelash extension glue?" is one of lash artists' most frequently asked questions. Finding the suitable adhesive for you and your clients takes time, practice, and a lot of trial and error. Because everyone's skin type is different, how a client's natural lashes react to certain adhesives will vary. In addition, your environment (like humidity) will affect which eyelash extension glue works best in your salon.

Achieving outstanding results with eyelash extensions comes from using quality products and applying them correctly, but there are several ways you can maximize the results you get from your adhesive.
