Askmewhats Reviews: Ardell LashGrip vs. Andrea Mod Lash

Here's my "to be continued" post from Oh My Falsies post...

I have tried on Shu Uemura Lash Glue (not on pix) and it works wonders...it sticks and it is easy to peel off as well without tugging your original lashes, but I find it a bit expensive, hehehe It's actually not that expensive but of course, I'm not going to be using falsies everyday of my life so I will settle on something good and yet, affordable...

Here are my 2 hauls of Lash glue ....



Left : Ardell LashGrip available at Watson's SM MOA for Php 380.00 Right: Andrea Modlash available at Beauty Bar for Php 195.00



Ardell Lashgrip Adhesive
comes in 2 types, the black ones and the clear ones (I bought mine in Clear as I thought I can always apply gel liners.

Askmewhats says ---

Pros--
  • it really does stick!
  • its easy to remove, doesn't pull out your original lashes
Cons --
  • the white part really does show! I did try to put not too much, wait for it to get a bit tacky before putting it on, the white glue didn't get transparent (or maybe I should wait longer than 3 minutes)
Overall --

For the price of Php 395.00 ($9.50). It's not too cheap, but it's not too expensive as well as this can last for quite some time. I believe I should give other lash glue a try and I can do some comparison. But basically, this is not a bad product, it doesn't sting and it is easy to remove. (that's the most important thing). For the white part? I find it not a bother as I can easily fill it in with black gel liner and the white glue will be gone! :)

Will I repurchase?
no, read further for my next review for the Andrea brand

Andrea ModLash Adhesive
comes in Black and another type in Clear but in bottle version for individual lashes

Askmewhats says ---

Pros--
  • it really does stick!
  • its easy to remove, doesn't pull out your original lashes
  • it's grayish, not PURE black, but it comes off nice
  • it's CHEAPER
Cons --
  • none for now

Will I repurchase?
Yes, too bad they don't have this in clear..maybe they'll have it soon :)

Overall note --
If you can click on the picture to enlarge, you can see that both tubes looked EXACTLY the same, you know why? Because both came from the same company with same ingredients and same box wordings. I didn't feel robbed as I started out wanting the clear one (which Andrea doesn't have). I've used both and it gives out the same quality, same tackiness...

Who tried this?
How do you like it?
If not, what are the other brands you guys have tried and totally love it?

Share and make other "falsies-whore" happy :D

Your askmewhats,
Nikki

  4. I've used both the Duo lash glue and the Andrea glue. Although I felt they both performed equally well, I found that the Andrea glue had a slightly foul stench. Did you notice that, hun?

  5. Hey there Chiara dear, my fellow pisces :) No, so far, I've been using the Andrea glue for quite some time now and there's no smell so far. Maybe it gives off odor if it wasn't used for quite some time? Not sure, I'll be observant on it!

  8. Thanks for the review. I have the Ardell Lashgrip and I agree, it dries and you can still see it! Kinda annoying cause I have to put gelliner over it to conceal.
