FAQs about Eyelash Extension Glue

1. How long does lash glue last? How should lash glue be stored?

A general rule to follow is:

  • Shelf life (6 months unopened)

Once the glue bottle is opened, it is exposed to moisture from the air which will start to cure the glue. So, it is important to store your glue correctly, in an air-tight container, in a cool, dark environment and away from direct sunlight.

2. What is the best glue for lash extensions?

There are many different types of adhesives out in the market. Eyelash extension glues are targeted at different lash artist levels, glue cure times, and viscosities of glue.

3. When to replace your lash glue?

Once opened, the adhesive has a life of about 4 weeks, even if stored in the correct environment.


Understanding the ingredients, shelf life, storage, and everything else you need to know about your glue is essential to keep your glue at its optimum for the best glue yet! Remember, when you are purchasing spare bottles of adhesive and need to store it, you can leave it in its original packaging and store it out of direct sunlight.
