Natural Lash Strips

These closely mimic your own lashes. They add a little bit of length and volume to enhance what you already have. They also blend easily with your natural lashes, making them great for day-to-day use.  

Fuller Lash Strips

When you want your eyes to pop, these are prefect. They voluminous and have a much more dramatic effect. The lashes are full and tightly packed, while the glue band is slightly thicker to accommodate more glue and volume. Stay away from them if you have sensitive eyes.

TIP: For ladies with small eyes, clip a couple of strands off the ends to make the strips fit.


These take longer to wear as they are not strip lashes. The cluster is a couple of lash strands secured together by a knob of glue at the base. You apply them according to the volume you want. They come in different lengths too. They are harder to reuse, which is why each packet contains a lot of strands

Individual Lashes

Strip lashes have been the go-to for extending your lashes but we recommend a more natural-looking and long-lasting option that will give you beautiful lashes. Individual lashes are not permanent, but they last up to three months when installed by a professional.
