Are False Eyelashes Waterproof?

We know eyelash extensions applied with individual lash adhesive will stay on for sure. They’re supposed to stay on for weeks – even months – at a time. But not everyone has the money or time for that. And if you’re like me, you also won’t want to commit to it, either.false eyelashes, false eyelash glue, fake false eyelash adhesive, individual eyelash glue adhesive, semi permanent eyelash glue adhesive, difference between strip lash glue and individual lash glue

By the way, if you didn’t know that tidbit about individual lash adhesives, you can read all about them here. Or by clicking on that picture over there. Either works.

 

So is there hope for those who can’t leave the house without their falsies?

Can you wear fake eyelashes to the beach or pool and have them stay on? Is it really possible to waterproof false lashes?

Let’s find out in my little experiment!

Just so you know, all lashes were applied with clear waterproof strip lash glue. (Skip to our video at the bottom if you don’t want to read!)

Round 1: Strip Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Sunny went with a strip lash style that could easily blend with her natural lashes. Anything with a knotted band is great, so picking up a pair of #213 Black lashes was a no-brainer (which doesn’t explain why she’s holding up a pack of #415 Black lashes in the photo below, but… oh well!)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Unfortunately, after having buckets of water splashed at her face, the lashes didn’t even last five minutes on her eyes. Water and lashes never make for a pretty combination because moisture will warp the shape and curl of false eyelashes – especially if the lashes are made of 100% human hair.  Moreover, we learned that clear glue turns white when wet – yikes!fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Round 2: Individual (Flare) Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Individual lashes look incredibly natural, so if I were to opt for lashes at a beach or pool, these guys would be my choice. I wore flares in this experiment since I find them easier to use than singles. (I actually tried this experiment with individual single lashes a while back. You can check out what happened to them in this post.)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Several buckets of water later, my lashes looked like either someone blew all their boogers on them or a family of lice decided to make my eyelashes their happy home due to the lovely effect of clear glue turning white when wet. They stayed on better than Sunny’s strip lashes did, but they fell off whenever I wiped water from my eyes until I eventually had no more eyelashes left.fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes

Pretty gross, right? Yeah… I think this round fails in more areas than just one.

Okay, I’m thinking maybe it will be a good idea to fuse my natural lashes and individual flare lashes with a coat of waterproof mascara to make sure they don’t budge at all this time. (Oh what, waterproof glue and waterproof mascara? That’s genius.) Seems like the perfect way to waterproof the lashes, right? Let’s see the results after dunking my face in water several times.

But first, let’s admire my hair and how pretty my lashes look before getting wet. I always like putting mascara on my finished flare lash application because nothing screams “My lashes are REAL!” like a set of clumpy-looking mascara-coated lashes. (You know it’s true. Just look at the photo below. You would never guess those aren’t my real eyelashes, right?)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes, waterproof mascara, mascara on with false eyelashes, can you put mascara on false fake eyelashes, red hair, long red hair

Also note, not a trace of white glue/boogers/wannabe eyelash lice to be seen on my eyes.

… and it looks like the supposed dynamic duo of waterproof glue + waterproof mascara didn’t work after all. I’ll give credit where credit is due: they definitely stayed on longer than the first two rounds. However, I still had that gross booger/lice-looking business happening on my eyelashes and after several more splashes of water, my perfectly applied lashes started to get loose and eventually fell off.

Here’s a little introduction to the star-studded cast of the Black Velvet Collection:

M016This style is all about attitude with its full and fluffy-looking base and sharp longer pieces. Made up of beautifully smoky layers of criss-cross faux mink hairs all over, these lashes are definitely the star of the collection and it’s not hard to see why.
