FAQs

Will it harm my natural lashes?

This is our favorite part of Flutter Junkies!  This company was created by a Lash Artist, and the health of the natural lashes is what we care about most.  She has seen first hand what strip lash glue and bad application of lash extensions can do to natural lashes.  Your natural lashes are safe with FJ.  

Flutter Junkies is very gentle on your natural lashes.  Usually the lashes gently slide right off.  When removing, go slow and if it doesn’t feel like it is coming off very easily, apply a little cleaning oil with your fingers to help it separate easier.  

 

How is this different from other lash systems?

Each of your natural lashes are growing in at a different rate.  It takes about a week for them to go from baby lash to adult lash, will stay there for anywhere from 4-6 weeks then slough off.  If all of your natural lashes were growing at the same time, you would lose all of our natural lashes every 6-8 weeks or so.*  

*The length of this process can be affected by hormones and genetics and may vary from person to person.

When lashes are glued together, either by an improper lash extension application, or by strip lash glue for multiple days...it can impede their growth cycle, and damage the natural lashes.  Most of the time this damage isn't permanent, however with repeated use...it can overtime start to affect your natural lashes permanently.  

Lashes, just like hair, shorten and thin over time anyway.  Have you ever seen a 90 year old with amazing looking 20 year old lashes?  We want to slow this process as much as possible by sharing with all #flutterjunkies the importance of natural lash health.  We are committed to creating products that keep the natural lashes thick, full, and long, as looooong as possible.

Flutter Junkie's is healthy for your natural lashes, completely customizable for what YOU want, 100% comfortable, lasts all day, and is SO simple to apply....and the cherry on top, is they are reusable up to 15+ times.  

 We are pretty certain that you will be so amazed you will want to call your bestie to tell her/him about them right away!  (Btw, thank you for sharing!)

 

I’m having trouble with the lashes sticking, what should I do?

Make sure your lashes are squeaky clean before you begin application (using Witch Hazel on a cotton swab is a quick way to keep them oil free).  If you still have trouble with them sticking, add more adhesive to the flutter and and/or your natural lashes, and be sure to pinch your flutter and the natural lashes together with your tweezers.

 

Are these magnetic? 

No.  There are no magnets involved.  It is similar to how vinyl on a window works; it sticks to itself.  There is no dry time, and the adhesive doesn’t have to get “tacky” or dry.  It's amazing actually!

 

Will this adhesive work with any fake eyelashes?

Yes it will, however we have done a lot of research and development to create the MOST NATURAL looking lash on the market.  When you look down, you won’t have that thick strip lash look across the top of your eyelid, which we LOVE!  #ditchthestrip and you will never have to worry about those pesky inner and outer corners ruining your day.

 

So I can apply "flutters" on the underside of my lashes OR on top?

Yes!  Be sure to check out our application video to see how we do both.  If you have sparse lashes, sensitive eyes, or eyelash extensions, then applying our flutters on top will probably work the best for you!

 

I have extensions, so why would I ever need Flutter Junkies?

We are the FIRST system that can be used WITH lash extensions to help fill those gaps when you can’t get into your Lash Artist.  I mean, let's be real...we know that nothing is going to replace a great set of lash extensions, but if we can help make those times between fills a little more bearable, we are here for it!

**Plus, if you ever develop an allergy to eyelash extension glue...we are here for that too ;).  This adhesive liner does not have any of the same ingredients as eyelash extension glue**

 

Why would I choose this product over lash strips?  Those are so easy for me to apply!

Full lash strips and lash glue are super uncomfortable (we know you are nodding your head right now lol).  You can feel them on your lid at all times, unless you are a unicorn or something.  As long as you don’t apply these lashes too close to your nose in the inner corner, you shouldn’t be able to feel them at all!

Plus our adhesive liner does not work like regular lash glue.  It has no dry time, you do not have to wait for it to get “tacky” and is not messy.  As an added bonus the flutter sections allow you to customize your own look, by mixing different sets, to complete a customizable look just for you!

And did we mention they are reusable ;)

 

Can the lashes be worn with mascara?

Yes, we have worn them with a light coat of mascara before, but be aware that they might not stick quite as easily.  Be sure to not forget to add a little adhesive liner to your natural lashes (over the mascara) before you apply the flutters!

 

Can I apply the adhesive liner over makeup on my eyelid?

Yes you can, just be aware that the tip of your adhesive Liner may dry out a bit faster.

 

My Adhesive Liner tip dried up, what can I do?

You can add a little bit of water to the tip of the pen, replace the cap, and stand it upright so the tip is facing the counter.  Let it stand overnight.

 

I have super blond lashes, how do I hide them without using mascara?

The Black Adhesive Liner is a great solution for this!  You can apply a thin coat of the black adhesive liner on your natural eyelash before applying the flutters.  For most people, even applying Flutters to your blond natural lashes will still blend very well.

  

I don’t have very many natural lashes from chemo and I can’t get the lashes to stay when I apply them underneath, help?

That is the beauty of this unique system.  It can be used in whatever way works best for you!  If you don’t have enough lashes to adhere to flutters on the bottom, you can apply them on top.  No damage.

 

 I have sensitive eyes and they feel irritated when applying them underneath, what should I do?

Of course we always advise to discontinue use with irritation, but consider trying application on top to see if it is still sensitive.

 

Can I go crazy and wear a set underneath and on top?

We would only suggest you do this if you have thick and strong natural lashes and they are removed at the end of the day.  The top application, the lashes are adhered to the skin, and the underneath application they stick to the lashes.  So yes you could do this without weighing down your natural lashes if they are already thick and long.

   

Will it get easier, my first application was difficult and I couldn’t get them to stay?

Yes it will!  Be patient with yourself for the first few tries.  We promise, just like anything, it gets easier the more you do it!  After a while you will be a pro and be teaching all your friends your best tips and tricks!

 

Can these be worn overnight? Or in the water?

We don't recommend that you keep our flutters on while you sleep, for fear of bending or damaging them.  And it is always good to let your eyes rest, remove everything, and get a good night sleep! 

(Baby lashes that are just growing in need room to grow and become strong and healthy.  We are ALL about supporting your natural lashes in the best way possible).

Pro Tip:  Apply a little organic castor oil (so affordable and can be found in your local grocery store) on your lashes and brows before bed.  It will naturally thicken and lengthen your natural lashes.  I mean, we are flutter "junkies" after all right?!  Just be sure you clean them off before applying flutters.  We like to use Witch Hazel on a cotton swab to prime the lashes for FJ's.
