Since I started wearing DIY lash extensions, there's been an explosion of lashes onto the market. The most well-known lash company is probably Lashify, and they do have a great product, however, it is pricier than many other options that I think are just as good.
Lilac Street Versus FlutterHabit
Two of my favorite other companies for lashes are Lilac Street and FlutterHabit. Lilac Street has more options and they are all on a nice, lightweight band. The price is as low as $4 per pair. FlutterHabit only has a few styles ($5-$6 a pair), and until recently, I couldn't sleep in their lashes because of the heavy weight. The one drawback for FH for me is that you do have to prep the lashes before wearing them. Lilac Street offers 10 lash pieces (all the same size) in a package, and FH sells pre-made maps with lashes of different sizes.
The new FH lash is called weightless #3, and I really like it. Apart from the lash prep, I love the curl, wispiness, length, lash map, and weight of these lashes and am already considering ordering them again so that I have an extra box on hand in case they sell out or decide to make them a limited time option.
Because my eyes are smaller, I only need to use 3/4 of the lash segments that make up the map, which means that I'll be able to get an extra set with the leftovers as long as I do some creative trimming. The pre-made lash map is a cat's eye, which means the segment on the end is the longest.
In this photo, I've removed the lashes and worn them a second day. I unfortunately put them on the "wrong" eyes, but I think they still look good.
There are also many styles of affordable lash segments on Amazon. I suggest that you watch Lash with Tash to see all of the beautiful options and try a few for yourself. Many of them have lightweight bands and a variety of styles and lengths so you can play around and create whatever look you'd like. One favorite for me was the fluffy Wonsis brand.
Although all the lash brands "promise" that you can wear their lashes for 5-7 days, my skin is just oily enough that I can usually wear them 1-2 days at most. I'll clean and reapply the more expensive lashes but just toss the more affordable ones and start off fresh each day.
