The main purpose of this post is to help explain the attributes for each lash adhesive. Some of them were formulated with specific techniques in mind. We are here to teach you all about each BL lash glue's formulation, so you can select the perfect lash adhesive for you! LET'S GET STARTED!
Why we love Optimus Glue for volume lashes:
It has the perfect rich texture and it dries quickly enough to hold your fan together but gives you just enough time to make a placement with the locking technique.
Why do we love Blink Lash Store's Volume Glue? It has a dry time that is a little bit faster than the Optimus Glue but still has that slightly thicker texture that is so perfect for handmade volume lashes.
BL Lashes Glam Glue has the perfect consistency! Are you noticing a theme here? We love a texture that holds the base of your fan together. This adhesive also has a dry time with a little bit of wiggle room
Blink Lash Store's Strong Magic Glue is exactly that, MAGIC! This lash adhesive works great with volume because it dries fast and has amazing hold and retention. Strong Magic is a great great choice for advanced lash artist who are making quick placements.
Not only is Exclusive Adhesive a great choice for the volume technique, it is also the perfect lash glue for your sensitive clients.
BL Lashes Mach Adhesive is one of the fastest drying lash glues you can find. It makes fanning sooo much easier.
Sky Lash glues were the first adhesives I learned about when the volume technique started. They have a fast dry time and work beautifully.
Sky S+ glue dries a little bit faster than the Sky S type glue. It also has a slightly thinner consistency. This adhesive is also Korean Certified.
When you are working with pre-made lash fans it is important to find a thin, fast drying adhesive. This will make it so they don't stick together and the base doesn't get too bulky.
Blink Lash Store's Exclusive Adhesive has a thin viscosity and a 2-4 second dry time. It isn't quite as fast as some of our other adhesives that we recommend for pre-made fans, so it is best used in high humidity environment.
If you look at our adhesive comparison chart, you will see that BL Lashes Mach Glue has one of the fastest dry times at 1-2 seconds. It also has a very thin consistency, perfect for pre-made volume fans.
Blink Lash Store's Ultra Plus Adhesive has been a customer favorite for quite some time. This is a low viscosity glue with a fast dry time. It checks all of the boxes for a great pre-made volume adhesive.
BL Lashes Ultra X Adhesive is one of Blink Lash Store's best sellers. It's thin consistency and rapid dry time makes it a customer favorite.
SKY S - SKY S+
Both Sky S and Sky S+ work great for pre-made fans. Sky Glues are some of the fastest drying lash adhesives on the market.
BL Lashes Q1 Adhesive is my personal favorite for classic lashes. It has a rich consistency that coats the extension and hugs the natural lash. This glue has THE BEST retention! Seriously, it can't be beat!
BL Lashes DIU Glue has a 2-3 second dry time and a medium viscosity, leaving just enough wiggle room while making your attachments. DIU's retention can last up to 6 weeks. This glue is a great addition to your eyelash extension supplies.
Blink Lash Store's Ultra X Glue has been a long time customer favorite. It has a 2-4 second dry time and a very thin viscosity. As one customer puts it, "Love this glue, it has the perfect viscosity, as well as dry time and amazing retention! It's dark black in color and everything you could ask for in a lash glue!"
Blink Lash Store's Strong Magic Glue is a new adhesive. It's dry time is FAST and retention is everything you could hope for!
After Q1, Optimus is my favorite adhesive for classic lashes (it's my favorite for volume)! Optimus has a fast cure rate and rich consistency.
This lash glue has a thin viscosity and rich dark color. It dries a little bit slower than other adhesives on the list, which is great for high humidity.
Not only is this adhesive great for handmade volume lashes, its slightly thicker consistency is great for the classic lash technique too.
BL Lashes Fina Adhesive was created to have all of the qualities that Q1 has, but with reduced irritation. It is also latex free.
Blink Lash Store's Mach Glue has an extremely thin consistency and a very strong hold. It is perfect for advanced lash artists.
Exclusive lash glue is one of my favorites! It is considered a semi-sensitive glue and is Korean Certified, yet it still has AMAZING retention.
The Lilly Adhesive is the newest in this lineup. It is considered a true sensitive glue and has a retention rate of up to 3 weeks.
Ultra Plus glue is BL Lashes best seller globally. It has a low viscosity that is less likely to clump. This is ideal for dense natural lashes.
