Does It Really Work? | Flirt FLashes Lash Applicator

Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator review
Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator

There are two types of girls in this world. Wizards girls who can rock lashes every day because they’re too glam to give a damn or muggles girls who save lashes for special occasions like going out. I am part of the latter group. That is why when it comes to mastering the art of applying false lashes, my mastery stops at about level 7. It no longer feels like I’m losing the battle when I try to apply them, but I could definitely use some help from the lash gods.

Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator

When I was given the opportunity to try the new Flirt Flashes Lash applicator, I quickly took it. Was this the heaven sent product that would save me from ruining another lash strip? Perhaps…

The Flirt lash applicator looks a lot like those Wite Out tape dispensers I would buy in bulk in middle school because my OCD self did not like having any scratched out writing mistakes all over my paper. This dispenser comes with 44 strips of individual lashes. Unfortunately, it’s not refillable so once you’re out, it’s gone for good.

Here’s what you do: you wind up the scroll until the lash is peeking out halfway, press the top button to grip the lash in place, apply lash glue (sold separately), let it get tacky, set the lash down wherever you want on your eye, and then use the bottom button to release the lash. Voila!

It took me a little while to get the hang of it, but this applicator does work. It’s definitely an innovative product, but it’s not without its flaws. It would be more cost effective if this was refillable and if they had a variety of lash lengths. All of the lashes are the same length so it’s really just ideal for sticking a few on the outer edges of your eyes and not the best for the inner part. Plus, I’m more of a full strip lash kinda girl instead of individual lashes.

Did it really change the way I apply lashes? To be honest, not really. I do like how pressing the top button down locks the lash in place because I’ve had to say RIP to way too many lashes that have fallen from the grips of my tweezers. That’s definitely a perk. The shape of the applicator is also really nice because you can hold it easily in a way that makes applying the lashes easy.

Is this is a must have for me? No.. In the end, I don’t think it revolutionized the way I put my lashes on. It’s a unique, innovative, and cool product, but so far, I’m still a tweezer gal.

    I would try it. As someone who stays far away from lash curlers (totally apprehensive of them,they just look so intimidating) this looks a lot more safe/not scary. I think it would be great for lash novices like myself (it seems beginner friendly) but like you said it’s not cost effective and once you’re done with it, it seems a waste? For someone like me it would last a while but other people who wear lashes more often it just wouldn’t be worth it.

    Hey Zaire

    • This would be great if you’re afraid of lash curlers! Honestly, using tweezers is kind of easier as a novice (especially if you use individual lashes) because you just place the lash down once the glue has dried and let go. This has way too many steps that make it a bit more complicated, and sometimes the lash doesn’t release, but it is a cool/unique tool! Granted, this does seem less scary than putting a tweezer by your eye lol!

        Oh thanks for the reply! If I ever get around to trying out lashes I’ll remember the tweezers thing! Yeah it is a very cool tool.

  • I don’t even wear glam lashes on nights out because I’m just that bad at applying them lol. This does sound like a really interesting tool though! Bummer that it isn’t refillable :( I gotta admit though, the packaging is really cute :D

    • The packaging is so cute! I wish it was refillable! I used to be so bad at applying false lashes omg haha

  • Somehow this gadget sounds really time consuming! I much rather use tweezers to put on my falsies since it’s so easy and fast for me to do now. I love the idea behind it though! The packaging is cute as well :)

    • The packaging is very cute :). Yes! Tweezers are speedier now that I know how to do it haha.

  • I am terrible with lashes even with a tweezer! I am always looking for ways to help me out so I may try these just to see how I go :)

    I always thought of myself as a wizard but in this aspect (and in this aspect only) I’m gonna have to take part as a Muggle!

    Thanks for the honest review. The tool sounds interesting, but I’d probably still struggle! I almost never wear false lashes, so I don’t have enough practise! x

  • I’m with you on the muggle-level lash application, I reserve falsies for special occasions/nights out only, as they take me a while to get right! I do prefer the look of individuals and it sounds like it’s easy to use, so I think I might quite like this little gadget. It’s just a shame that you can’t refill it!

    • I hope they make a refillable version! I also reserve wearing lashes for special occasions and nights out because you need the extra time to apply them nicely lol!

    I’m so terrible with false lashes but singles and triples are definitely my preferred way to go with them. I would be too scared to use this product though! There’s been reviews/demos on YouTube but I’m gonna pass and stick with tweezers as well.
