Hi

Just curious to know if there is anything out there for false lashes adhesives that are NOT latex derivatives.  This is a terrible allergy for me, and a few others, and quite frustrating when I tried to use them personally.  Any advice is most helpful, so thanks in advance! wink

I use spirit gum. Which, to the best of my knowledge, though I may be wrong, has no latex in it. I just did a search and it looks as though it doesn't.

Just be very very careful with it. I brush it on the base of the lashes and then attach.

"Spirit gum is a non-toxic, liquid adhesive used to secure wigs and latex prosthetics. It dries like rubber and is removed with spirit gum remover, witch hazel, or alcohol."

They do make it, I'm not sure what it was called, but they sell it at Sally's Beauty...
