Let’s be real, lash glue is the yin to our false lashes’ yang.
Hands down one of our favourite false lash accessories (not to mention the most important when you think about it), even the best false eyelashes would be nothing without the right adhesive. And yes, there can be a huge difference between formulas.
So we’ve rounded up a stable of six of the best lash glue contenders; ones that lead the race when it comes to keeping your faux lashes firmly fastened to your lash line where they belong.
EYLURE 18 Hour Latex Free Adhesive Clear
Nothing beats a classic clear-finish lash glue as far as we’re concerned. Appropriate for a myriad of eye looks, you can easily hide any mistakes with this quick-drying, invisible formula. It may have taken 20 minutes just to get your lashes on, and you may have lash glue halfway up your eyelid, but no one needs to know that with this latex-free pick on-hand.

Ardell LashGrip Strip Adhesive Dark
DUO Line It, Lash It 2 in 1 Eyeliner & Lash Adhesive
Forget the rigamarole of lining your lashes only to cover them with lash glue and grab this 2-in-1 eyeliner and lash adhesive instead. Simply apply your eyeliner as per usual and slide your favourite faux lashes on while the formula is still wet, or wait for the duo glue to dry and you’ve got a classic waterproof liner look in its own right.

VELOUR LASHES Velour Lash Adhesive
Velour lashes has a reputation for producing some of the best lashes in the game, and unsurprisingly, their lash adhesive hits pretty hard too. It’s available in a black finish for blending your lashes into your eyeliner or a white-to-clear, latex-free formula that seamlessly adheres even the most impressive set of fluttery lashes to your lash line.

TARTE Tarteist™ PRO Lash Adhesive
This latex and formaldehyde-free pick from Tarte pairs perfectly with their cruelty-free faux lashes. Utilise the thin paintbrush-tipped applicator to apply a thin layer to your lash band and let the fast-drying, long-lasting formula do the rest.
$16 at Sephora
HUDA BEAUTY Glue
If you’ve ever found yourself admiring Huda Kattan’s enormous fake lashes, then you should probably keep a tube of the beauty mogul’s lash glue on hand for similar results. Boasting a strong finish, speedy dry time and an opaque black tone for seamless lash band-blending, this waterproof pick is sure to hold up against whatever you throw at it (though we would advise against hurling inanimate objects at one of the most sensitive parts of your body to prove that point).
$32 at Sephora
