Top 12 Best Japanese Eyelash Glues to Buy Online 2020 - Tried and True!

Our editors searched Japanese e-commerce sites (such as @cosme, Amazon, and Rakuten) for the best eyelash glues. We then chose the 12 most popular products and tested them.

We focused on three things: how long it lasts, how waterproof it is–as this ended up affecting just how long it lasts–and how easy it is to remove. We then compiled everything we learned into a buying guide about and list of the best Japanese eyelash glues available online.

Top 12 Japanese Eyelash Glues to Buy Online

We picked out the 12 most popular products and tested them for the following: how long it lasts, how well it resists moisture, and how easy it is to remove. We asked ourselves which glue was long-lasting, and it scored in the waterproof department. We also selected products that wouldn’t damage our eyelashes in the process of removal.
Then, based on how they performed on our tests, we graded and ranked the top 12 Japanese eyelash glues available online.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Average Score on All Fronts

Average Score on All Fronts

Koji Spring Heart Eyelash Fix Glue is an eyelash glue that most false eyelash users in Japan have tried out at some point, and for good reason. It stays on for a decent amount of time and is easy to remove, but doesn’t quite match up to our top products when it comes to moisture resistance. We consider the cons justified by its affordable price.

Does Well for a Daiso Product, but Not Well Enough

Does Well for a Daiso Product, but Not Well Enough

Daiso’s Eyelash Glue is great when you consider it as a product from a one-hundred yen shop, but it doesn’t make the cut when it comes to serious cosmetics. It includes a decent amount and lasts a relatively long time, but our test lashes peeled right off when faced with water. We’d suggest using Daiso’s Eyelash Glue only when you know you won’t be sweating a lot.

Waterproof and Easy to Remove, but Doesn’t Last Half a Day

Waterproof and Easy to Remove, but Doesn’t Last Half a Day

When we tested out Shu Uemura’s Eyelash Adhesive for a day, we were surprised to find that our false eyelashes had started to peel after just four hours post-adhesive application. Its saving grace is that it received top marks in moisture resistance and ease of removal.

Doesn’t Stand up Well to Moisture or Time

Doesn’t Stand up Well to Moisture or Time

Despite having “Super Strength” in its name, our team found that SHO-BI’s Decorative Eyelash Power Adhesive (Super Strength) wasn’t as strong as it implied. While it was easy to apply and stuck firmly at first, we noticed peeling at the corner of our eyes just four hours into our test day. It also didn’t stand up to moisture very well at all.

Double Beauty Product? Double Let-down

Double Beauty Product? Double Let-down

Beauty Nailer Eyelash Clear Glue is advertised as an eyelid glue (to create a double eyelid effect) as well as an eyelash glue, but we weren’t satisfied with either intended use. 

 

It received pretty low marks in all areas of our chart, so we wouldn’t advise using this as either an eyelid glue or eyelash glue. The corners of our test lashes were peeled off by the end of the day and they didn’t stand up to our water test at all.

Saving Grace? Easy to Remove

Saving Grace? Easy to Remove

LJ’s False Eyelash Glue is a hundred-yen product that you’re probably better off without. Over two-thirds of our lashes had peeled off by the end of the day, and they couldn’t handle even an ounce of moisture. The only thing we enjoyed about this glue is that it was extremely easy to remove.

How We Tested the Eyelash Glues

In order to test out all of the eyelash glues our editing team gathered, we devised three situations. Two of them actually involved wearing the eyelash glue while one of them didn’t.

Test ① Long-lasting

Test ① Long-lasting
We gathered members from our editing department. We then purchased 12 of the most popular eyelash glues and wore them from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to see if they would peel off. At the end of the day, we removed the lashes following the removal guidelines on each eyelash glue.

Test ② Water resistance

Test ② Water resistance
To test how waterproof the eyelash glues were, we created a concoction that we call “fake sweat” using horse oil and warm water. We then sprayed this onto a set of fake eyelashes from the one hundred yen shop with the glues, and then pulled at the lashes with a pair of tweezers to see if they would peel off. 

 

We found that the eyelash glues best at resisting moisture contained simple ingredients like acrylic resin and water.

Tips on How to Choose Japanese Eyelash Glue – Buying Guide

Here are three big things to look out for.

① If You Want Something Long-Lasting, Look for Waterproof

① If You Want Something Long-Lasting, Look for Waterproof
One of the things you want your eyelash glue to do is last for a long time. It will be pretty annoying to reapply glue to your lashes halfway through the day because of peeling. 

 

We found that one of the key features of a long-lasting eyelash glue is whether or not it’s waterproof, as it will stand up to water, sweat, and oil. It’s a good idea to check the packaging to see if it’s advertised as waterproof.

② Find a Glue That Won’t Damage Your Eyelids upon Removal

② Find a Glue That Won’t Damage Your Eyelids upon Removal
Since the skin on your eyelids is so sensitive, you’ll want a glue that is easy to remove. By this, we mean find something that doesn’t leave behind chunks of glue or contain ingredients that may be abrasive to your eyelids’ sensitive skin.

③ Choose the Right Color of Glue for the Right Situation

③ Choose the Right Color of Glue for the Right Situation
You probably noticed in our ranking section that we included a section on color. When we looked for eyelash glues to test out, we found that they were available in three main colors: white, clear, and black.
White glues are easy to see when you’re applying them, so it’s also easy to see whether you’re applying too much or you apply some in the wrong place. Black glues can also double as eyeliner, eliminating the need for one more product. Clear glues are, well, clear, so your fake lashes look slightly more natural.
We also noticed that glues tend to come in either a brush type or a tube type, but we didn’t notice a huge difference in which was easier to use.

Looking for Other Eye Makeup Recommendations? We’ve Got You Covered

You’ve got your false eyelashes on, but do you have your best mascara on? At mybest, we searched for the best Japanese tube mascaras so you don’t have to.

Summary

We rounded up members from our editing department, purchased the 12 most popular Japanese eyelash glues, and tested them all.
We learned that the best of the best glues are not only waterproof, they’re also gentle on the sensitive skin of your eyelids. Pay attention to these factors next time you’re out shopping, and your falsies will always be on point.

    If you’re anything like us, when you pass someone with thick eyelashes in the street, you give them a glance of envy. And this happens a lot–we’re in Japan, land of cosmetics. Fake eyelashes, of course, are wildly popular here, but a good mascara is just as invaluable (and less likely to claim a few real eyelashes as sacrifice).Especially here in Japan, there are many types and brands: drugstore and high-end, tubing and waterproof. And the more choices you have, the harder it is to choose. That’s why, this time around, we ordered the 38 most popular mascaras from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as @cosme, Amazon, and Rakuten) and tested for the following:1. Curl Staying Power2. Finish3. Ease of Use4. Smudge Resistance5. Ease of RemovalThis is how we tested and found the most exceptional Japanese and Korean mascaras.

    All too often, we have to make a choice. Do we look good, or do we leave our skin and lashes well enough alone? Mascara opens up and brings out the eyes and irises, but it also likes to claim a few lashes as sacrifice when you take it off at night. However, tubing or tube mascara is designed to slip right off of your lashes with a bit of hot water.In Japan, most of our top-selling mascaras are tubing. So you have a confusing array of choices–and you need to know not only which mascara comes off easily but also which looks best when it goes on. That’s why we ordered the 26 most popular tubing mascaras from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as @cosme, Amazon, and Rakuten) and tested for the following:1. Ease of Removal2. Curl Staying Power3.

    We might not be able to prevent aging altogether, but we can still age gracefully. That feels like the consensus here in Japan, where anti-aging skincare is popular and constantly evolving. As time goes by, our skin undergoes certain changes–hormones are thrown out of balance, certain functions are dulled–and serums that you used once may no longer be as effective.So which serums a) target the signs of aging and b) will actually work for you?
