Volume describes the fullness of the lash. The various types of volume we offer are natural, soft glam, dramatic, or glamorous. Volume adds texture and dimension to your lashes and depending on the level of volume you choose, that will determine how full your lash style is.

When you combine two pairs of lashes into one, this is known as stacking. Stacking lashes means you are gluing one pair right on top of the other or adding individual lashes on top of a strip to customize them. Stacking lashes is a fun way to combine different lash styles to make one as unique and individual as you desire. Often times people will stack lashes when they are trying to blend two of their favorite lash styles to create one mega lash.

Lashes that have 3 layers built into the style are described as three dimensional or 3D. This will instantly tell you that the lash has extreme volume. Lashes that are three dimensional are designed to give your eyes more dimension, so the style won’t appear flat on your eyes. 3D lashes are more flattering on all eye shapes.

Faux Mink Lashes
Faux mink lashes are designed to mimic the look and feel of real mink lashes. Although mink lashes are in high demand in the industry, we would never compromise our values of being cruelty free. To meet this demand, we created a line that mimics mink fibers while being 100% made from synthetic fibers. The fibers from our Noir Faux Mink Collection are soft and light on the eyes making them look like a better version of your own. Lashes that look good, that you can feel great about wearing.

Criss cross is used to describe the direction that the fibers lay. Criss cross means the fibers have an X shape or X formation. The fibers lay on top of one another alternating the direction. This gives the lash an unstructured and fuller appearance when wearing them.

Clusters are little sections of lashes grouped together. A lash that has clusters in its design is our Siren Lash. Clusters allow you to see through the lash making your eyeshadow more visible. Depending on your eye shape, sometimes the lash can unfortunately cover your whole lid. Finding a lash with gaps in between or creating your own is ideal for that piecey look.
