Lashify UK review: Before and after photos reveal if Lashify lashes are worth it

7th March 2024 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber
Verdict

If you really struggle with applying regular false eyelashes or want something a bit more permanent and a little more natural than falsies, then Lashify UK does as it promises.

It’s a bit of a faff at first – and this includes trying to buy the kit because the site takes you through a weird chatbot quiz – but once you get the hang of it, it’s a great way to get maximum impact with relatively minimal effort.

Sadly, at £125 this convenience and impact will be well beyond most people’s reach.

Especially when you consider decent false eyelashes come in at around £10 and lash glue is around £8. You’d have to get an average of four eyelash extension treatments from a salon before you even got near this price. Plus those tend to last a little longer and you don’t need any skill to apply them.

That said, now I’ve gotten over the initial shock and outlay, I have to admit that I’m a pretty big fan of Lashify UK.

So much so, I’ve already ordered refills in case I run out (because I’m using them that much). It really depends on how much budget you have to spend and how much versatility you want as to whether you want to buy into the Lashify reviews.

However, if you can afford it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Does the Lashify Control Kit and its Gossamer lashes live up to the hype of online Lashify reviews, or are they a waste of money? Find out in my before and after photos


If you’re anything like me, you would have seen at least one advert in recent months for the lash extension control kit from Lashify UK.

The kit promises DIY lash extensions at home and it’s apparently as “easy as applying mascara”.

I have short, blonde lashes, and even the best mascaras – including those in our best mascara for short lashes guide – fail to give me any sort of real length, curl, or volume.

As a result, I often turn to either lash extensions or false eyelashes.

The problem with even the very best false eyelashes is that they’re not that easy to apply, they only last a day and they’re not particularly versatile.

Equally, the problem with lash extensions is that they’re usually pricey, you have to make time to have them done professionally and because their bond is so strong, they can cause damage to your natural lashes.

Lashify promises a middle ground – they give you the convenience and versatility of false eyelashes but the slightly longer shelf-life seen with professional extensions. All without damaging your existing lashes.

However, there’s a catch…the Lashify control kit costs £125 and it seems many Lashify reviews that do the rounds on Instagram, etc are from influencers that have seemingly been paid for their review.

With this in mind, I wanted to not only see if the Lashify lash extensions kit is worth the money, and is as easy to apply as the adverts suggest, but to offer a completely independent and honest review.

I bought the Lashify control kit with my own money – I was not gifted a kit nor have I signed a deal with the company in return for a positive review.

Lashify UK reviews

Before I get into the main part of this Lashify UK review, I wanted to explain what you get inside the Lashify Control Kit. Then I explain a bit more about the process involved and give my honest review. If you want to skip these sections and jump straight to my verdict, click here.

Lashify Control Kit: What’s inside?

Lashify Control Kitmamabella

The Lashify Control Kit contains two Gossamer lash refills, the Fuse Control Wand, dual-sided bond and the Glass sealer for £125

 

Lashify describes itself as “the inimitable DIY luxury lash extension system” and it has won various awards for its kit.

To get started with Lashify, you need to buy the Lashify Control Kit. This kit costs £125 and inside the storage box is:

  • 12mm and 14mm Gossamer lashes
  • Lash bond (glue) and lash mascara
  • The Fuse Control Wand
  • Lashify’s Glass sealer

The Fuse Control Wand is an applicator designed to mirror the arc of the lash line. The wand’s horizontal clamp force helps you fuse the Gossamer lashes with your own lashes. You can put the included Wandoms, which are soft covers that go over each arm of the wand.

You then get a double-ended bond stick, and the Water Poof sealer. One end of the bonding stick houses the black Whisper Light and the other houses the clear Whisper Light. The Glass sealer seals your Lashify look and extends the wear of the Gossamer lashes. You can think of it like a glossy finishing coat and this can be used every day to refresh your lashes, and add an extra sheen.

Once you’ve bought the Lashify control kit, you then only need to pay for Gossamer lash refills, or to replace the different parts of the kit.

Since we first published this Lashify UK review, the company has released a second version of its Control Kit. This kit offers a wider range of Fuse Wand colours and an almost overwhelming number of lash sizes, colours and types with prices starting at £145.

In this so-called LED Control Kit, you can choose red, lavender, blue and brown lashes (plus others) as well as a range of shapes in each of the Amplify, Bold and Curl collections. You can see a summary of all the lashes available across the Lashify range below or head over to our Lashify Lashes guide to learn more.

Lashify UK reviews: Before and after

Lashify Before and Aftermamabella

Before we applied the Lashify lash extensions (left) and after (right)

As you can see in my Lashify before and after photos above, the difference is stark. I was really impressed with just how lightweight the Gossamer lashes are and how you barely know they’re on. Even while wearing glasses.

Usually I can’t wear my glasses with false eyelashes because they’re relatively stiff and hit the frames. This was not the case with Lashify lashes.

I opted for the Amplify lashes in 12mm and 14mm and, as you can see, they create a very natural, understated look. I’m a huge fan of the overall finish and would happily wear these every day.
There are a couple of downsides, though.

Lashify reviews after photomamabella | mamabella

A closer look at the Lashify UK After photo. The finish is natural while being impactful

Firstly, the application process is a little time-consuming. It’s not difficult and once you get into a rhythm with it, the application feels much easier and more natural than applying regular false eyelashes. However, it can take a bit of practice.

Namely using the Fuse Control Wand without stabbing yourself in the eye…or that might just be me!

As a result, I recommend you set some time aside to experiment with the Lashify Control Kit when you don’t have toddlers running around, or when you’re not on a deadline for a taxi or dinner reservation.

Secondly, the lashes don’t last as long as you may think/hope. The longest they lasted on my eyes was three days, and even then I had to apply the Glass sealer every morning, and fuse them daily, to keep them looking their best.

You can’t wash your face while wearing them, and you definitely can’t swim while wearing them, but you can wash around your eyes, and the fewer water or oil-based products you get on them, the longer they’ll last.

mamabella tip: If you sleep on your side, I highly recommend you remove the outer lashes and reapply the next morning. Otherwise, you might find them stuck to your pillow, or cheek, or lost completely!

How the Lashify Extreme lash refills look like on my eye

If you really struggle with applying regular false eyelashes or want something a bit more permanent and a little more natural than falsies, then Lashify UK does as it promises.

It’s a bit of a faff at first – and this includes trying to buy the kit because the site takes you through a weird chatbot quiz – but once you get the hang of it, it’s a great way to get maximum impact with relatively minimal effort.

That said, now I’ve gotten over the initial shock and outlay, I have to admit that I’m a pretty big fan of Lashify UK.

So much so, I’ve already ordered refills in case I run out (because I’m using them that much). The image on the left-hand side shows what the Lashify Extreme lash refills look like on my eye.

It really depends on how much budget you have to spend and how much versatility you want as to whether you want to buy into the Lashify reviews.

However, if you can afford it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

How to apply Lashify lashes

To apply Lashify lashes:

  1. Cleanse your eyes and eyelashes. Avoid using an oil-based makeup remover as it can stop the Lashify lashes sticking properly.
  2. Remove the Lashify lashes from their packaging.
  3. Apply a coat of Whisper Light onto your natural lashes, like a mascara.
  4. Wait for 30 seconds to a minute.
  5. Repeat, but this time put more of the bond on the base of the natural lashes.
  6. Using the Fuse Control Wand, place each Gossamer UNDER your lashes and lift it up so they stick to the bond which should be tacky by now.
  7. Once you’ve positioned all the Lashify lashes where you want them, use the Fuse Control Wand again to pinch the fake lashes together with your natural lashes.
  8. Seal the look with the Water Poof seal.
