Have you ever pondered the differences between various eyelash extension brands? The varying price ranges might leave you wondering about the quality discrepancies across Australia and the global Eyelash Extension market.
It is essential to understand that a significant disparity among suppliers exists, not only within Australia but also worldwide. Unfortunately, the lash industry, along with the whole beauty sector, lacks comprehensive regulations, leading to a surge of companies venturing into the market without adequate research, lashing experience or proper registrations and insurances.
This alarming trend has given rise to numerous new lash companies offering unsafe products, including improper lash weights for pre-made fans, subpar lash adhesives sourced overseas, and even products that pose risks to the natural lash.
At Jennifer Lay Lash Supplies, we take immense pride in our accumulated experience of 20 years in the lashing industry, shared among our team comprising of Jennifer, Kitrina and Kobe. Our esteemed found Jennifer, boasts over a decade of personal lashing experience and dedicated two whole years to meticulously testing lash products before launching our line to the public.
Yes, that’s right - two years!
Jennifer spent a lot of time, energy, effort and money into finding the best of the best before she launched to the public. This is SO important as there are so many manufacturers and some of them sell very terrible products.
Still to this day, we continuously test new products and suppliers before deciding whether they are of a high enough quality to sell to our valued customers.
The difference between low and high-quality lash extension products lies in several important aspects that directly impact the performance, safety, and overall experience of using them:
Material Quality: High-quality lash extension products (like ours) are made from premium materials, such as Japanese or Korean PBT, that are carefully selected for their durability, softness, and natural appearance. On the other hand, low-quality products may be made from cheap, inferior materials that can result in a less natural look, look shiny and ‘plastic’ and have a shorter lifespan.
Adhesive Strength: The lash adhesive is a crucial element in lash extensions. High-quality adhesives are formulated to provide a strong bond between the natural lash and the extension, ensuring longevity and reducing the risk of premature lash shedding. All of our adhesives in the Your BFF Range are formulated in Korea without hydroquinone, latex and PMMA. Low-quality adhesives may have weaker bonding properties, leading to a shorter retention period and more frequent touch-ups.
Curl and Thickness Options: High-quality lash extensions typically offer a wide range of curl types and thicknesses, allowing lash artists to create customised looks for their clients. Low-quality products may have limited options, limiting the lash artist's creativity and ability to achieve desired lash styles. Low quality lashes also loose their curl very quickly or don’t have an appropriate curl to begin with
Consistency and Uniformity: High-quality lash extension products are manufactured with precision, ensuring consistent curl and thickness throughout the entire set. In contrast, low-quality products may exhibit inconsistencies, making it challenging to achieve a uniform and aesthetically pleasing lash look.
Retention and Longevity: High-quality lash extensions, when properly applied and cared for, tend to have better retention and longevity. They stay bonded to the natural lashes for an extended period, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups. Low-quality products may lose their bond quickly, leading to a shorter lifespan
