Femme Fatale Lashes True Glue Adhesive
As an eyelash connoisseur I have tried many eyelash adhesives over the course of my 14 year professional and makeup loving career. I’ve found that they are pretty much the same. However, I’m always looking for an adhesive that lashes longer, that’s more nourishing, less damaging and less toxic.
Current lash glues on the market all contain very harsh chemicals like formaldehyde, ammonia, parabens, phthalates, sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate and many others. The eye is a mucus membrane and whatever you apply to it is absorbed into your blood stream, that means every time you’re applying your lashes you’re absorbing carcinogens and other harmful chemicals. Why look for less harmful cosmetics when you could be putting poison right in your eye. That’s why I was so happy to hear about the new True Glue Eyelash adhesive.
The one and only all natural lash adhesive available. Free of all harmful, harsh chemicals, True Glue offers a safe and clean iff adhesive useful for all wearers and stylists.
I applied the True Glue Lash Adhesive to the back of my hand to test the adhesion to my skin and the vellus hair. Since I can’t really make the top of my hand move that much, I would assume this would be close to the movement of consistent blinking. Over the course of 15 minutes the glue started to lift from my hand from normal movement. Only a small section, the clear spot stayed in contact with my skin.

Product | “True Glue all-natural lash adhesive is the first of its kind! It’s completely natural and actually beneficial for your skin and lashes, and it works! True Glue lash adhesive is for use with any type of false lashes and lasts all day until removed. While all conventional lash glues make your lashes dry and brittle, True Glue lash adhesive is actually beneficial for your skin and lashes!” – True Glue
Pigmentation | True Glue lash adhesive is a cloudy clear gel like liquid that dries crystal clear.
Application | The press sample I received (pictured above) is packaged in a lipgloss-like tube with a thin brush applicator. However, the website shows different packaging so the packaging may or may not be the same. The brush makes it easy to apply directly to the weave of the eyelash weave without wasting or spilling product. True Glue adhesive also has a pleasant smell, almost floral.
Texture | Once the lash adhesive dries its stiff. It reminds me of non-professional cluster or individual eyelash glue but slightly little softer. It doesn’t flake off and is flexible. However, upon removal of the eyelashes the weave is a little stiffer than it would be with rubber and/or latex based adhesive.
Longevity | I wore the Femme Fatale Lashes with the adhesive for over 8 hours. Unfortunately, the lash started to lift from my natural lashes after about 3 hours. I had to reapply to that lash glue but it was quite easy with the brush applicator.
Quality Of Ingredients |
❤︎ Full list of ingredients (if available):
Rosewater, chamomile extract, biotin, candelila wax, pullulan, geranium, glycerin and castor oil.
❤︎ List ingredients that are interesting:
Pullilan is produced from the starch of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans. It provides a smoother texture to formulas, provides foam retention, is anti-static and oil resistant, and water soluble and therefore easily rinsed away.
Geranium extract is a very good antioxidant for skin, and the parts extracted are usually not fragrant, thus present minimal risk of irritation.

Overall | The idea of a completely chemical free eyelash glue is brilliant. The only thing I would change is the adhesion strength. It just doesn’t last long enough for professional or even daily use. I love that it doesn’t have the fishy smell that almost every lash adhesive available has. The scent is actually pleasant. The formula contains lash conditioning ingredients that prevent damage to your natural lashes. If the hold strength was improved just a little bit, I would say this could be the leading lash glue in no time.
