In case you have spent the last month or so living without social media, Elleebana recently released its Extreme styling shields for lash lift procedures. The entire lash lift community is over the moon with these new styling shields for a few reasons. But, we have to admit that the original lash lift rods are far from being so last season. In fact, these two incredible products offer many great benefits, and as different as they are, they are both an essential part of any lash lift kit.
The common misconception is that one product is better than the other or that you should immediately replace your lash lift rod stock with Extreme styling shields. So, in today’s post, we are going to discuss the differences in these two products and the uses and benefits of both. It’ll make you think of lash lift in a whole new hue.
Introducing the Elleebana Extreme Styling Shield
From the design queue of Elleebana founder and formulator to the eyelids of lash lift clients around the world, Elleebana is excited to introduce the Extreme styling shield. The Extreme styling shields come as a response to those with short or straight lashes who want more of a dramatic lift rather than extreme curl. The shields feature the smoothest silicone available, making isolating and lifting the lashes a breeze. The lifted underside and extended edges make these shields ideal for long lashes and keeping pressure off of the sensitive ocular nerve. The Extreme styling shields allow the beauty professional to put more emphasis on the base of the lashes, providing a bolder, upward lift than the traditional lash lift rods.
Re-Introducing the Elleebana One Shot Lash Lift Rods
Elleebana One Shot Lash Lift Silicone Rods are a staple in any lash lift kit. The classic lash lift rods have been used in Elleebana One Shot Lash Lift procedures since the beginning of time. These silicone rods are made of the smoothest silicone on the market and help the beauty professional lift and isolate each lash for a precision lift and bat-worthy curl. These tried and true rods react well with all of the Elleebana One Shot Lash Lift products, Elleplex ReGEN, or any of the aftercare products.
Differences Between the Products
The differences between the Extreme styling shields and the lash lift silicone rods are in the lift and curl they provide the lashes. The traditional silicone rod provides a gentle, natural lift with a dramatic lash curl while the new Extreme styling shields offer a more dramatic lift at the base of the lash with a more gentle curl. The new design of the extreme shield offers a larger working area to accommodate extra-long lashes and the new curved underside reduces ocular pressure during application.
Similarities Between the Products
Although it is important to recognize the differences, it is just as important to celebrate the similarities of these two great products. Both of these products bond in place to the client’s eyelids using either the lash lift glue, original lash lift adhesive, or the stronghold keratin adhesive. Both the Extreme styling shields and the lash lift silicone rods are made from super-smooth silicone to provide a working surface that results in the best end result and a happy client.
Which One Should You Choose?
Both! That’s right, we strongly suggest that you stock your lash lift service station with both the Extreme styling shields and the lash lift silicone rods. Both are great products that can be used differently. When you are selecting the right one to use, it will come down to the individual client, their eye shape, and the desired result.
