Which Is Better—Eyelash Extensions or False Eyelashes?

Posted by Noble Lashes on 23rd Jul 2021

When it comes to completing a make-up look, we know that long and voluminous eyelashes are the perfect finishing touch. They frame your eyes, making your beautiful peepers pop. When you are pining for a bold, elongated look that mascara alone cannot provide, a false eyelash is your best friend. The big question is which style do you choose: eyelash extension or false strip/individual eyelashes? Well, any savvy make-up wearer knows there is room in your cosmetics kit for both.

Should I choose eyelash extensions?

To ensure that your eyelash extensions are safe and of high quality, you should ensure that they are applied in a salon and by a trained professional. During this treatment, semi-permanent fibres are glued to your natural lashes to make them appear longer, thicker, and darker. As you can see from our range of eyelashes, you can choose from many styles and colours to achieve your desired look. The most common materials for eyelash extensions include silk, mink, and synthetic such as plastic fibres or faux mink. Everyone has their own preference for how they like their lashes to look—from length to tint to curl level—and so these semi-permanent fibres come in a range of different specifications.

You may prefer to opt for eyelash extensions over false lashes for a few reasons. The most obvious benefit of eyelash extensions is that they last much longer than false eyelashes. If you have a busy schedule, you could save time by treating yourself to eyelash extensions. Can you imagine what you could be doing instead of worrying about your early morning eye make-up? You could sit down to enjoy your coffee or even grab another 10 minutes shut eye. So dreamy!

Eyelash extensions tend to last a few weeks if you take care of them. Provided that they have been applied properly by a qualified professional, the extensions will remain beautifully long and full of day to night. Not having to wait for false eyelash glue to become tacky enough for application can save you precious minutes each time you get ready. Not to mention that the glue used for eyelash extensions is often medical grade, which means it adheres much better and is more resistant to sweat, water and oils. Being able to walk out of your salon appointment with gorgeous, superstar eyelashes is one of life’s greatest pleasures!

… or false eyelashes?

We know that some of you will prefer to put all the work in yourselves and be the makers of your own transformation, and we salute you! Make-up is all about choice and personal preference, and we are proud to supply false lashes for occasional glamour.

Strip and individual false eyelashes differ from eyelash extensions in that they are much more temporary and last around 12 hours—great for a one-day event. Strip lashes are made up of fibres that have been glued to a flexible band. With these, you can simply trim the band to fit your lash line and fix onto your eyelid. Individual lashes are, you guessed it, individual fibres that you can glue wherever you like on your eye lid for personalised full lashes.

False eyelashes are perfect if you like to maintain a more natural look most of the time and go maximum effort for a special event. The beauty of false eyelashes is that you can apply them yourself, so you do not have to wait for a salon appointment to change up your look. Taking just a few minutes to apply, false eyelashes are ideal for those spontaneous nights out! As false eyelashes are temporary and applied by yourself using eye-safe glue, you can simply peel them off when you are home from your event. High-quality eyelashes such as ours can even be used more than once, so carefully remove the glue once you are done and they will be ready for your next outing! Being able to reuse false eyelashes makes them super budget friendly.

False eyelashes have come a long way in recent years. They were often heavy and uncomfortable to wear, but at Noble Lashes we specialise in lightweight eyelashes that are easy to apply and even easier to flutter! The amazing thing about false eyelashes is that you can switch up your look as often as you like—no waiting for semi-permanent fibres to grow out. With both strip and individual lashes available, you can create a look that is unique to you.

Final thoughts…

Our conclusion is that the beauty world is your oyster! As we have outlined above, we adore both eyelash extensions and false lashes.

It is more important to ensure you have chosen high-quality in whichever style you choose. If you decide to get eyelash extensions, you want to find a reputable salon with trained beauticians. For false lashes, look for a high-quality, reusable brand.

False lashes are great if you are starting to explore your style, or even if you are a seasoned professional who loves switching up your look! If you prefer a quicker solution, eyelash extensions are a solid investment. What really matters is that you feel comfortable, because when you feel good you look gorgeous.
