What is a Patch Test and Why should I do Patch Test?

A patch test is a simple and quick way to check for allergies to the adhesive used in eyelash extensions and lash lifts. We especially recommend this test for customers with sensitive eyes before their first eyelash extension appointment. This ensures the glue we use is safe for your eyes.


However, it's important to note that allergic reactions to eyelash extension glue can occur for various reasons. The reaction could be due to the adhesive's formulation or from interactions with other products you use, such as moisturizers or makeup removers, that might contact your lashes.



How to do a Patch Test for Eyelash Extensions?

  1. We start by carefully applying tape and eye patches to protect the area around your eyes.

  2. Next, we apply five eyelash extensions strands to the outer corner of your eyes.

  3. We ask you to monitor the test area for any reactions over the next 48 hours.

  4. If no adverse reactions occur, the eyelash extensions will be removed, and you’re welcome to book your full appointment two days after the patch test.



How to do a Patch Test for Lash Lifts?

  1. First, we apply a small amount of each solution in the crook of your elbow (inside or arms).

  2. Next, we use a small piece of tape to cover the solutions. This is to secure and stop it from rubbing off your clothes.

  3. Leave the solutions on your skin for 15 minutes.

  4. After 15 minutes, we remove the tape and wash the solutions with water.

  5. Monitor the test area for any reactions over the next 48 hours.

  6. If no adverse reactions occur, you’re welcome to book your full appointment two days after the patch test.


A patch test is a important first step for first-time customers. It helps prevent allergic reactions to the adhesive glue, which could cause you to be discomfort like itching, swelling, or redness.


We hope this has helped to clear up any worries you have had about patch testing! If you would like to check whether you are allergic to lash services, feel free to opt for a patch test!
