Patch Testing

What is an Eyelash Extensions Glue Patch Test?

This is a test you should carry out at home or by a professional to make sure you do not have any adverse reactions to your eyelash extensions.

Method One: Advisory for SEMI-PERMANENT lash adhesive (Tatti Lashes Lash Addict)

Apply lash adhesive to natural lashes

Apply a small amount of lash adhesive to just three individual eyelashes using a micropore brush, on the outer corners of one eye and allow 24 hours to see if any reaction occurs. If you don't experience a reaction such as, itchiness, swelling or any discomfort,  you should be fine to use the semi-permanent lash adhesive. We advise for a professional to do this.

Method Two: Advisory for strip eyelash glue

Dropping glue on skin behind the ear

Using a micropore brush apply a small amount of lash adhesive behind the ear, on the lower side as this is a very sensitive area and allow 24 hours to see if any reaction is caused. 

If any irritation presents using either method rinse the area thoroughly with cold water for several minutes to remove the product completely. If irritation persists please seek medical attention.

Eyelash Extensions Glue manufacturers recommend that you follow a simple patch test procedure to replicate the treatment 48 hours before the full application is carried out.

*Shelf life on all lash adhesive is 12 months (unopened) from date of purchase.
