DUO vitamin E lash adhesive review

Hey guys,

Purchased this back at Sasa when I was in Hong Kong late last year and realised I never got around to reviewing it so here’s the blogpost! I’ve always heard good reviews about DUO lash glues and this vitamin E lash adhesive did not disappoint!

I’ve tried out two lash glues in the past – one from Ardell that stung my wrist when I did a tester lash application – always test out anything that’ll go close to your eyes if you have sensitive eyes/skin or are unsure about a product! and another one from Manicare which had less of a stinging sensation but had no added vitamins and/or such.

Equivalent to about $14 AUD

The applicator tip is a smooth bristle brush end which allows for the smooth application of glue

It can be purchased online from Sephora for $20.00 (not sure if the price is in AUD or USD )

Ingredients

Acrylates/Ethylhexyl Acrylate Copolymer, Retinol, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl

  • Ascorbic acid: A vitamin found especially in citrus fruits and green vegetables. It is essential in maintaining healthy connective tissue, and is also thought to act as an antioxidant [source: Google]
  • Retinol: Also known as Vitamin A
  • Acrylates/Ethylhexyl Acrylate Copolymer
  • Tocopheryl: Also known as Vitamin E acetåte

Some makeup products are difficult to be replaced by a more natural alternative – if you know of any reliable lash glues that don’t use as many chemicals as most lash adhesives, please let me know! I was surprised to see the ingredient list so short (grabbed it off the Sephora website) and for it to be 3/4 vitamins listed on the list, it was somewhat reassuring. Though with eyelash adhesives I do wonder if they’re the only product that require a certain amount of preservatives as it’s used close to the eyes.

*This lash adhesive is latex free

*All individuals react differently to certain skincare/makeup products – my experience may not reflect yours.

Overall comments

I would definitely repurchase due to the ease of application and non-stinginess of the formula as well as the longevity and strength of the glue! The product also has a recommended shelf life of 12 months which really draws out the worth of the product with 5 grams of product going a long way.

Thanks for reading – any advice/feedback is appreciated!
