If you love the look of long, fluttery lash extentions and you haven’t tried Falscara yet, this is your sign to DROP EVERYTHING and add them to your cart immediately. (Or dash off to your nearest drugstore like CVS, Rite Aid,or Walmart). Why? The short answer: Because these DIY drugstore lash extensions look unbelievable real. The long answer: Read on.

Falscara DIY lash extensions have become an increasingly popular option for those who desire longer, fuller, and more luscious lashes without the need to drop some serious cash on the professional service. (Which takes hours and costs a fortune, BTW.)

Unlike traditional false eyelashes, which can be tricky to apply, Falscara Wisps offer a whole new level of wow. The Wisps are designed with a microband and featherlight fibers to be applied easily, seamlessly and comfortably under the natural lashes. The unique under lash technique delivers a more natural appearance, making it fab choice for anyone looking to add extra oomph to their eyes, and coming in around $20 bucks for the Starter Kit, you seriously can’t go wrong.

Drugstore lashes…is this real life? Yep, Falscara has become a bit of a viral phenomenon.

It did take me a little while to get the hang of, but whoa, such a huge  payoff. Beauty editors (including yours truly) aren’t the only ones singing their praises of these affordable DIY lash extensions. TikTok continues to go completely wild over Falscara.

@falscara #REPOST @alexismichaelhmua Trying out the DIY lash extensions @falscara starter kit for the first time with their bond adhesive and seal. This “UNDER” the natural lash false lash application is one of my favorite techniques for applying lashes. See below for full first impressions review. As mentioned in the video, I use the Falscara lashes all the time on clients underneath the lashes, on the outer edges and sometimes on top of the lash line as a single lash application. When I do this under the lash placement, I traditionally use a thin amount of lash glue along the lash band for sanitation purposes as the bond adhesive would have to be applied with a single use disposable lash wand or brush when applying these lashes. As a first time user of the bond and seal I thought it made the application easy to apply. However, I only got about a days worth out of this lash application. The bond is a very sticky product and will require either their bond remover or a make up remover to thoroughly take this off. As the bond does coat the lashes I can see beginners having an easier time placing these against the lashes vs just across the lash band to adhere it to the lashes. I did notice that other lash glues designed for this type of DIY Lash application along the inner part of lash bands has a stronger hold than this adhesive. @falscara also has an overnighter seal that claims to extend the wear. So if you like this lash style check that out. I have yet to try it. Let me know if you’d like to see me use it. #falscara #kissfalscara #kissproducts ♬ original sound - falscara

Why has TikTok fallen head over heels for Falscara?  Here’s a quick break down:

Affordability: Falscara is WAY more affordable than getting professional lash extensions, making it a great option for those who want to achieve a lash extension look without breaking the bank.

Easy application: Falscara is designed to be easy to apply at home, even for those who have never used lash extensions before. The bond and seal system is straightforward, and the wispy lashes are lightweight and easy to work with.

Commitment Free: Falscara is a temporary solution that can be removed easily without causing any damage to your natural lashes. You can wear for a day or up to 10 days with Overnighter, it’s totally up to you.

Natural-looking: Falscara gives a natural-looking extension effect that enhances your natural lashes without looking too over-the-top. (Unless that’s the look you’re going for.) The lashes are wispy and lightweight, which creates a subtle and fluttery effect.

Customizable: Falscara comes in different lengths and styles, allowing you to customize your lash look to suit your style. You can also combine different styles for a more unique look, even stack and layer them for extra drama.A

Is Falscara easy to do?

Can you mascara? Then you can totally Falscara. It’s really that simple. The wisps go under your natural lash line. It takes some practice to get the hang of, but don’t overthink it. The beauty of this system lies in the ability to build your own bold. From subtle to full-blown glam, the wisps can be stacked, layered, mixed and matched — the looks are limitless.

Looking for longevity? You have the option to wear the wisps for up to 10 days with Overnighter 10 Day Sealer ($10.99) which is sold separately, but included in the Special Edition Starter Kit.  Oh, and fear not sad or dive-in movies because these babies are water-resistant and smudge-free.

Celebs love Falscara, too

Ash K Holm, the celebrity makeup artist behind the glamorous looks of Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Graham, Camilla Cabello and more loves to use Falscara on her A-list clientele.

The Under Lash Technique Explained

The under lash technique is the cornerstone of Falscara’s success. By placing the extensions underneath your natural lashes, this method creates such a natural look. Traditional false lashes often sit on top of your natural lashes, which can create a noticeable ridge and make the falsies more apparent. The under lash technique, on the other hand, ensures that your lash line remains smooth and continuous, giving the illusion of naturally lush lashes.

Applying Falscara DIY lash extensions is a straightforward process that requires only a few key items: the Falscara applicator, Bond & Seal, and your chosen lash wisps. Follow these simple steps to achieve a stunning lash look:

Step 1: Brush a light coat of BOND on natural lashes. A little goes a long way!

Step 2: Use the included APPLICATOR to pluck a WISP from the tray. As shown, pick up a WISP from the middle-outer end for optimal control. One by one, gently place the WISPS underneath the base of your natural lashes, slightly away from the waterline. Apply wisps starting from the outer corner of lash line, working inwards (or vice versa). Place WISPS right next to each other for a seamless look.

Step 3: Dab a thin coat of SEAL under WISPS to eliminate any sticky residue and hold WISPS in place. Pro tips: If needed, after applying SEAL under WISPS, use the APPLICATOR or your fingers to squeeze the WISPS against your natural lashes; this helps the WISPS adhere for a more secure hold.
