Here at Sussex Makeup Academy, we believe in being eco-friendly and using cruelty free makeup.
Finding cruelty free and vegan lashes in particular can be quite difficult at times.
Most brands sell mink lashes, often naming them ‘cruelty free mink lashes’ (no such thing – Blog coming soon on Mink Lashes)
It is important to make sure you always research and ask questions about what you are using
in your makeup.
We was over the moon when ‘Oh My Lash’ contacted us asking for us to review their lashes.
Based out of Berkshire UK. Nicole the owner of Oh My Lash, creates gorgeous lashes purely fro synthetic fibres, making them of course cruelty free and vegan. As well as this, her packaging is entirely reusable and recyclable (Big yay from us already!)
The boxes that the lashes come in are very secure and durable – so they should keep our precious lashes safe when not being worn.
They do many lashes in a variation of styles so there is something for everyone and one of her most popular lash styles is the ‘Signature’ lash, which are great for more natural looks including brides and proms.
We then we have more dramatic lashes such as ‘Girl Power’ looks amazing with a dark smoky eye.
All Oh My Lash lashes are sold at £6 per lash, with the amazing news that they also offer wholesale pricing which is great if you are a makeup artist needing to stock up for wedding season, with MUA bundles taking the cost of lashes down to as low as £3.90.
A stand out point of these lashes for me personally was how comfortable they are. I almost
forgot I was wearing them (which is saying something for me!)
Application on clients resulted in not having to trim the lash length once, which is
amazing as I know that this is something that can be scary for many
‘new’ lash wearers.
Nicole from O My Lash advises that you can re-use the lashes 5-10 times. Of course as with everything this depends on how well you look after them. The key tends to be; the better quality glue will of course keep your lashes in better shape. I personally love the DUO lash glue.
As well as ensuring you are cleaning them properly, Nicole suggests using an oil-based eye makeup remover and gently removing the glue.
Our students have since gone on to order 60 sets so we’re looking forward to hearing how they get on with them.
I would love to hear your thoughts and of course, if you have any questions, I’m sure Nicole at
@ohmylash_uk and we will be more than happy to answer.
All the best,
Amy and the Sussex Makeup Academy Team
