When using an adhesive with a fume, such as Rapid Volume, Fastlash or Masterlash, it is important to remember to sit your client up for at least 5 to 7 minutes, with their eyes closed.  Opening their eyes too soon can cause the eyes to water, which can lead to problems with the glue bonding properly.  The client is also likely to squeeze their eyes together to try to prevent them from watering, which can disrupt your perfectly placed lashes. It is best to be patient to give the fumes time to disperse before opening the eyes.

You can be safe in the knowledge that all of our adhesives have been ISO tested, and none have been tested on animals.

Please remember the single MOST IMPORTANT rule about glue. All glues must be patch tested at least 48 hours before a treatment. Please do not let your client sign a waiver. Whilst rare, clients can have serious reactions, and if you don’t patch test you will not be insured.
