into it : kiss strip lash adhesive (with aloe!) …

I have perhaps tried every single lash glue there is. From the clear to the white to the black,  from the single adhesive to strip adhesive, from the tube to the brush on applicators. I have laughed, I have cried, and I have loved my way through many a lash glue.

And then I found this new one and  … I just want to get married to it!

My current obsession is Kiss’ Strip Lash Adhesive (with Aloe) in Black. It’s inky black (to match my gel liner!), it’s wet but not goopy, and it glides over a lash track like a dream. I’m not even kidding you, I have one tube in both my kits (as in my compact makeup kit, and my “this job is going to be a big one!” kit), plus a tube I keep inside my brush belt just in case. And I’m pretty sure, somewhere in my supplies drawers, I have a tube or two packaged up waiting to be used!

So why am I loving this product so much?  

Well for starters, despite its traditional tube packaging, I have never pushed out too much product or made a big clumpy mess of it. It seems to release smoothly out of the tube with a tiny squeeze, meaning less wasted glue. In addition, while tacky in consistency it is never seems to get goopy or clumpy. Yes, I do get a bit of dried mess on the applicator now and then between uses, but once you remove that, the glue inside the tube is still as good as the day I first opened it.

I also appreciate how it transfers from your applicator (or however you choose to apply the glue) and glides across the lash track. For me, it always creates a thin but consistent line right across the lash.

Lastly, while the same formulation comes in clear – je l’aime en noir! Black, black and more black. I mean, I love it for liner, smudgy shadow and mascara … because well, maybe I’m just basic like that … but now I can add my lash glue to the mix. Parfait! And an added bonus, for my brides or clients who aren’t as big a fan of black liner as I am but whom appreciate the definition a small swipe of black liner can give, Kiss’ black glue actually creates a thin line across the lash line once applied with the false lash, and therefore, (with a little bit of help from a slanted eyeliner brush and maybe a small speck of gel liner) you have practically won that battle!

I love pairing Kiss’ lash glue with ALL my false lashes from the Kiss line and other brands. It’s currently my secret weapon!
