FAQ


Kawaii Girl Cosmetics is a New York based beauty brand made for beauty lovers from around the world. If you have questions about us or our products, check our FAQ section as answers to many of your questions will be answered below!

 Our Lashes

1. What are your lashes made of?

We offer human hair, mink, 3D mink and 3D silk lashes. All of our lashes are cruelty free.

2. Can Kawaii Girl Cosmetics' lashes be reused?

Absolutely - all of our lashes can be re-worn multiple times! A great pair of lashes can be viewed as an investment! With proper care most Kawaii Girl Cosmetics lash wearers can reuse the same pair of lashes up to 20 times. For best results we recommend the following:

  • Never pull excessively at the hairs. Specifically, our mink lashes are hand tied to the lash band - pulling excessively at the hairs will cause premature shedding.
  • Apply lashes after you've applied eye shadow, liner or any other powders around your eye area to prevent makeup from caking on the top of your eyelashes.
  • Make sure you apply lash glue only to the lash band and not on the actual lash hairs.
  • Less is more with lash glue. Applying excessive amounts of glue to the band can cause glue to adhere to the actual lashes - reducing the longevity of the lash.
  • For best application results, trim the lash band to properly fit your own lash line length and make sure the glue is actually tacky (a little dry) before you apply to your lash line.
  • Use actual eyelash glue meant for lash strips. Glue designed for individuals, eyelash extensions or hair extensions is not the same consistency as lash strip glue and can damage the band or lash hairs.
  • Don't sleep in your lashes. You can crush the hairs and cause permanent crimps in them!
  • Never pull off lashes! This can stretch or twist the lash band, pull out hairs and pull out your own real lashes!! Remove lashes gently by soaking a cotton pad in makeup remover solution or using a makeup remover wipe to gently lift the band from your natural lash line. The remover will help to gently break down the lash glue while protecting the eyelash strips and your natural lashes.
  • Remove any residual glue from the lash band and store in its original case until your next use!

3. Which lash is right for me?

This will really depend on your comfort level with wearing eyelash strips and the effect you're looking to create. If you are entirely new to wearing eyelashes, we recommend starting with our human hair styles - especially Ginza, Kanda or Roppongi as they are some of our lightest styles. Our human hair lashes are set on very flexible, easy to apply clear bands and depending on the glue you use, can be worn for 12 hours or more.

For more experienced lash wearers, our silk and mink lashes offer fuller volume styles and are available on flexible black bands and a lightweight flexi-clear band. Our silk styles feature the thinnest bands available for fuller volume styles. Although still very easy to apply, these bands are slightly wider than our human hair lash bands and are probably easier for more experienced wearers to apply.

4. Do I need to use lash glue with your lashes?

Yes you do. Our lashes do not come with adhesive already applied to the bands.

5. Do you sell lash glue?

As of right now, unfortunately no! We do have plans to launch a lash glue shortly. In the meantime, our personal preference is black lash glue as we feel it blends in better with the lashes and your eyeliner.

5. How do I apply lash glue?

Do NOT apply lash glue directly to your lash line. Apply a thin layer directly to the lash band and wait for it to become tacky (a little dry) before applying as close to your natural lash line as possible.

6. Can I wear eyelashes without other eye makeup?

Absolutely! Sometimes all you need is a great pair of lashes to perk up your natural features and greet the day. However, if you're only wearing lashes and no other eye makeup, be sure to be very precise with your lash placement as any "oops" or crooked lash will be more obvious than when lashes are applied over liner and eye shadow.
