How to Use
Rated 2.53 out of 5 stars
This product is very easy to use! I was shocked at how quickly i got these on & how nice they looked. I was wary at first because the band was solid hard seeming uncomfortable. But after I wet the band with WARM water, the adhesive started to get tacky and softened the band up. These would be my fav if it wasn't for tricky removal. removal is water, which is also the adhesive. i used cotton and soaked each eye for around a minute and the band did pull an eyelash out on each side :/ maybe soak them a bit longer with the stop. possible user error? i will try my best to keep them away from my lash line next time.
the concept is good, horrible execution. i saw this at a rite aid and thought it was super smart since it eliminated the purchase of glue. i took them out of the package when i got home, and i genuinely thought the adhesive on the band was what stuck it to the packaging bc it was just. so. thick. i already knew it wasn't going to be worth $8, bc it just made the dainty lashes look so plastic-y and fake, where from the side-profile, it would not seamlessly blend with your actual lashes. i tried them on multiple times, following the instructions of many youtube beauty gurus who did it successfully but no matter what it wouldn't work. the adhesive dried super fast, so i had to dip tweezers in water multiple times to get everything stuck on to my eye, and it just wouldn't stick. the adhesive was too thick, yet still uneffective? you qould think no glue = less time, but no it took me sooo long for someon who can get lashes on in < 2 min, and when i got them on, the adhesive band created a gap between your lashes and the falsies since it was so thick, and it looked very unnatural. only lasted like twenty minutes after all that work too, and the whole time, my eyes BURNED. i have never had eye issues with any actual lash adhesives or glues, and it looked like i was stoned, and my eyes watered so much. i don't have any latex allergies anyways!

After reading numerous reviews, I decided to try these and the glue was just super irritating and they kept falling off. Total waste of money so I return them. Thankfully Ulta beauty returns eyelashes!

I will admit soaking them in water did not seem inviting to me but it actually worked. They looked great and my daughter said they looked great!

I bought these cause they looked so cool and the lashes were actually so cute. Buuut like the other reviews, the band is superrrr thick. I tried moving the band around to loosen it but it didn't do much. When I put them on, they were quite uncomfortable because of the band and the ends kept coming off because of my almond eye shape since I couldn't loosen up the band. I was disappointed because the lashes were cute and the idea was cool, but I would stick with regular lashes instead of these.

Followed the directions exactly, on the one hand one side stayed in place for a little while and the other side was coming off within an hour. These are super tacky and sticky, tore out my natural lashes and made my eyes swollen...

I am a lash girl! I live for lashes. I usually get extensions done but my lash girl is out on vacation for a few weeks and I decided to give my eyes a little break until she comes back.
While at the store, I came upon these as they were something so cool! But when I went to give them a try I was disappointed. The glue literally is slime texture. Way too slimy for my liking. The lashes had no curl to them and would weigh down, even if I tried to up them. The band is way too thick as well. When I had took the lashes off the glue that dried up looked like I had boogers dried up on my eye lol. Lastly, the glue is too slimy that my lower lashes kept sticking to these lashes.

I bought these on a whim and for the price I didn't have huge expectations. However I LOVE these lashes. For those people complaining about the stiffness, did you read the directions? My were pliable and easy to apply. Will buy again.
El from New York City
These eyelashes were great. You have to cut the ends off and dip the glued edge in warm water for 10-15 seconds. They stayed on all day and for me they sat on my lash line perfectly. Easy to remove. Just keep in mind they are FALSE lashes and will not look too natural. 5 stars.
Needs good quality from New Jersey
Great idea for water only activation. Wish it could be done without the lashes feeling like plastic.
Elle from Philadelphia, PA
Surprising that such an awful product could come from Arden which usually makes great lashes. These have such a thick band that it hurts to go onto the eye, and can not lie naturally in the lash line. The adhesive is so weak that it barely stays on. But with the uncomfortable and unnatural band it's not worth it to attempt to use regular lash glue. Do yourself a favor and save your money, stay far away from this product.
Ash from Santa Rosa
The lashes are pretty.
The band is thick and not very flexible.
If you don't mind only using once not bad, but definitely need to use some sort of remover. They ripped some natural lashes out.
Elizabeth from Greenwood
These make putting lashes on so much easier! Absolutely in love with these, I bought all the styles I could find! A little water and boom you can apply them! So beautiful and amazing different styles!

I was hesitant but wanted to try them. I read the reviews here. Here are some tips
Be sure to roll around that glue band, so it breaks up the hard glue band. I did it so it would sit a certain way on my eyeline.
I did trim off the extra lash free glue band on either ends.
Hope this helps y'all. I loved these. Going to try to restick them on today!
I tried from Ny
I was hoping these would've worked , so sad.

All you do is dip in warm water and boom stick and style

They were easy to use, they stayed put all day long (even the corners), came off easily before bed& they looked amazing all day! I will be purchasing as many as I can so I have plenty of them in stock!

I've seen these on TikTok and a girl tried them and loved them so I decided to get a pair and test them for myself. The lashes themselves are extremely cute great volume and length but the band is EXTREMELY stiff, I tried bending the band to adjust it to my eye shape and they SNAPPED. The glue on it is on a side where it does not stick to your eyelid so it ends up sticking to your natural lashes. After examining how they looked when I put them on, the band is SO THICK AND STIFF that it created a GAP between my natural lashes and the fake ones and looked very fake and not good at all. Overall the idea is fabulous and the lashes are perfect but the BAND is STIFF and THICK.

They apply really well. They did start coming up at the ends after a couple hours, but I touched up with a dab of lash glue and they stayed really well. I lost A LOT of eyelashes upon removal, then threw them away immediately. Super sad because I had high hopes for these lashes 😞
Warning from Charleston WV
I bought these in excitement to skip glue for some quick lashes for family pictures. It was so cool! A little water and some sticking and bam I was done. They looked good too! But at the end of the day, I slowly removed them in the same fashion I remove traditional glue lashes, and it literally took SEVERAL of mine with it 💔😢😭 I am devastated !!
Lish from Ohio
Hard band . Like super hard and hurts . Water does not stick ! Great concept but not thought out enough
Cj from San Diego
Okay in order for the glue to work and get sticky, you need to dip it in within 15 seconds into hot to warm water. So far it lasts about 6 hours for me.
