False Eyelashes vs Eyelash Extensions

Let’s talk lashes! In particular, False Eyelashes vs Eyelash Extensions! Although both create similar results, the two are VERY different in technique, cost and maintenance. Read on for our full false eyelashes vs eyelash extensions comparison!

FALSE EYELASHES VS EYELASH EXTENSIONS

APPLICATION

False eyelashes can be applied at home within minutes! The ease of applying falsies makes them the most popular lash extension method on the market. Simply choose your pair, cut to fit & glue! Read our super helpful guide on exactly how to apply falsies HERE.

Eyelash extensions are much more complex in application. They must be applied by a professional. Each lash is individually applied at a lash salon and the whole process usually takes 1 – 2 hours. The application is very detailed, as each individual hair is applied with a semi-permanent bonding adhesive.

COST

As there are so many types of false eyelashes available, the price does vary depending on the quality of lash you purchase. From synthetic to human lashes, mink to silk lashes. You can buy lashes in bulk calculating each pair to be only a couple dollars. Whereas a higher quality lash such as mink or silk should cost you around $25 a pair.

Of course with eyelashes extensions the technique is much more complex. Therefore one application will cost around $125. This also does depend on the look you want to achieve, as more full and glamorous looks will up the price. As these are a semi-permanent method of lash extensions, keep in mind the cost of infills, too!

MAINTENANCE

Falsies are not worn long enough to require maintenance, therefore the upkeep of falsies is very minimal. The perfect way to add volume and length to your lashes without the commitment. All that is required is application, removal and safe storage. Super simple! In saying that, the better you look after your lashes, the longer they will last! Did you know, ZALA Lash Romance lashes last up to 25 reapplications?!

On the other hand, eyelash extensions require much more maintenance as they are semi-permanent. Proper maintenance is a must with eyelash extensions for long lasting results. With lash extensions, beauty products & cleansers containing oil must be avoided. It is also recommended to avoid wearing mascara with extensions. If proper care is not taken, this can cause premature shedding or even damage to your natural lashes. This may be a decider for some when weighing up false eyelashes vs eyelash extensions!

DURABILTY

Once applied correctly with a good quality adhesive, they are very durable on the eye! Although, falsies are of course designed for temporary results. Cheap quality lashes often last only 1-2 applications. Whereas high quality 100% Human & Mink Lashes are very durable, lasting up to 25 applications! However, they cannot be worn to bed, whilst swimming or for an extended period at one time.

fasle eyelashes vs eyelash extensions

Whereas eyelashes extensions typically last 4-6 weeks once applied, with infills required. Hence, lash extensions are perfect for those who desire more permanent results. These are also ideal for those who wear very minimal makeup or who have naturally spare or small lashes. Although lash extensions provide longer lasting results, they are a MUCH more delicate method. Keep in mind the lash area must be handled with EXTRA care, as shedding is expected.

RESULTS

Lastly, results! Due to it’s complex & delicate process, eyelash extensions are perfect for creating an ultra natural look. Eyelash extensions are designed to perfectly fit the shape of your eye, as well as the curl of your natural lashes. Individual lashes are applied very close to the lash line, therefore there is no visible strip or band creating a seamless look.

On the other hand, false eyelashes have been known to appear obvious and unnatural. But, don’t be discouraged by cheaper quality falsies! Materials such as human hair & mink hair are designed to replicate the look, feel and texture of natural lashes. These higher quality materials create the same effect as eyelashes extensions in minutes & at a fraction of the price!

The ZALA Lash Romance offers a full range of 100% Human and 100% Mink lashes to create a natural, feathery appearance. Our 100% Mink 3D lashes are super fluffy and voluminous! False eyelashes are also great as they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from barely there to ultra bold sets. The ZALA Lash Romance range offers 8 unique styles, perfect for every look and each occasion.
