Diablo Lash Kit review: Is it really possible to get a professional lash lift at home?

19th August 2020 | Author: Abigail Beall
Verdict

We’d like to caveat this review by first saying we’ve seen other people’s results using the Diablo Lash Lift Eyelash Perm kit, and they’re better than ours. For people with short eyelashes to begin with, like us, this just might not be the kit for you.

However, if you have long, straight lashes and you’re looking to give them a bit of a lift, this might be perfect for you. It’s relatively easy to get the process right, even for someone who has never had a lash lift before.

The best thing is there is enough of every solution to try it ten times so if you don’t quite get it right the first time, you can give it another go.

Pros
  • Ten applications in each kit 
  • Cheaper than professional treatment
  • Easy to do from home
Cons
  • A bit tricky and fiddly
  • Takes about an hour 
  • Not great for short lashes

During lockdown, while professional beauty treatments like lash lifts, have been impossible to get done in salons, loads of us have resorted to at-home kits to get out fix at home. One of the companies benefiting from this trend is Diablo Cosmetics with the Diablo Lash Lift kit.

The company sells make-up brushes, applicators and other accessories, but is best known for its eyelash perm kit.

Diablo Lash Lift contains safe and irritant-free ingredients that ensure your lashes remain nourished and flake-free.

The kit is cruelty-free. Diablo does not use animals for testing, nor do they work with companies that do.

Note: Always carry out a patch test before using anything like this kit. Put a small amount of each product on the inside of your elbow and wait 24 to 48 hours. If you have no redness, swelling, itching or burning in that time, it’s safe to use the kit.

Diablo Lash Lift Eyelash Perm Kit Review

We have never had a lash lift before, so can’t compare the results to a professional treatment, but this does mean that we are complete noobs to the whole process. A point which may help make our review accurate and relevant.

Thankfully, the Diablo Lash Lift kit is easy to use. There are plenty of video tutorials to watch to get an idea how to use the kit, and there are only a few steps. It can be fiddly at times, but we didn’t expect much less from a lash lifting kit. There’s a reason why therapists need to complete courses on this stuff!

The kit comes with a variety of sizes of lash pads to choose from, and we went for the ‘S’ size, which is supposed to give a dramatic effect. Because our eyelashes are short to start with, we weren’t expecting a dramatic transformation, and we were right.

However, the process definitely lifted the lashes, so they became much more visible above the eyelid than before.

Immediately after applying the kit, the eyelashes were clumped together, but after a night’s sleep they had spread out evenly and looked much better. The instructions do say when you lift the lashes onto the adhesive, to make sure they’re evenly spread out. But that is really tricky to do.

Application

There are three main stages to this Diablo Lash Lift kit.

Firstly, you cleanse your lashes. Then you apply adhesive to a lash pad, stick it to your eye, then apply more adhesive to the front of it.

You scrape your eyelashes up so they are stuck to the pad, then apply a perming solution. After waiting fifteen minutes, you remove the perming solution and apply a fixing solution.

After another eight minutes, you remove that and then apply a nourishing solution at the end, using a lash comb.

The kit requires you to have your own cotton buds, which we didn’t have, so we used small eye makeup brushes to apply each solution. It also requires cling film to put over your eye as you wait for the solutions to do their bit.

Results

Diablo Lash Lift review before and afterAbigail Beall | mamabella

We were expecting to see more visible results based on the photos and videos we’d been shown in ads, and we’d seen in other reviews, so we were incredibly disappointed.

This process is fiddly, so if you’re not into intricate procedures then maybe it’s not for you. But even with our short, straight lashes, there is definitely a clear result. Our lashes are much more visible now with nothing on, and it makes a much better base for mascara.

We can’t wait for four weeks’ time, when we are allowed to try the whole process again now that we know how it works, to see if the results are any better.

If you’re used to having lash treatments and feel like you’re missing them, or if you are just curious about what the effects might be – especially if you have straight and long natural lashes – we’d recommend trying this kit.

Also, because you can use the Diablo Lash Lift kit ten times, it works out at just £2.90 per perm. This is a tenth of a price you’d pay in a salon.

Of course, the results aren’t going to be the same as having it professionally done, but if you are willing to spend an hour fiddling with your lashes, you might be surprised at the effects.
