A HORRIFYING video shows false lashes have been SUPERGLUED onto a woman’s eyelids, destroying her natural eyelashes.
Lash technician and Tiktok user Maddy Warr rescues this woman’s lashes after a different beautician botched the extensions beyond belief.
Lash technician asserts these are NOT lash extensions
Maddy insists in her video that her client’s “lash extensions” are not “lash extensions” at all.
In fact, they’re false lashes that have been stuck onto a woman’s eyelids with common superglue.
Worse still, Maddy explains that her client was totally misled by her original lash technician.
She says: “She got it done at a salon and she said the lady called it ‘super lash glue’, so that’s why she would only need a fill every two months.”

With damaged natural lashes and stiff, painful extensions, the client came to Maddy for help.
As soon as Maddy saw the client’s lashes, she gave her three options – one of which was to go to the hospital.
Maddy explained to the client: “[I told her] I can pick at them, it’s going to be painful but I can get them off. You can go to the E.R., or you can just let them grow out and hope they’ll fall off.”
As she’s explaining this, the client reveals that it is superglue binding her lashes to her lids.
While superglue usually doesn’t cause serious injury to the eyes, it can cause corneal abrasions or damage to the conjunctiva.

Silicone composition and rubber component eye lash glues, by contrast, are much safer as they don’t contain allergic components.
The client thankfully hasn’t suffered any medical complications due to the superglue, and she opted not to go to the hospital and instead to have the extensions removed by Maddy.
After an hour of pinching the false lashes with tweezers to break up the adhesive, Maddy was able to remove all of the botched extensions.
Many viewers were concerned to see that the client’s natural lashes were extremely sparse after the treatment.
Although her natural lashes are “definitely suffering”, Maddy says that she “hopes” her client’s lashes will fully regrow.
She has advised her client to use castor oil as a naturally healing balm for her lashes, and she’ll receive weekly re-growth updates from her client to monitor her progress.
The day after Maddy removed the botched lashes, her client said that her lash line was still “sore”, but that she was feeling “a hundred times better” with the lashes removed.

Commenters were shocked and horrified by the botched extensions.
Many people called for the client to sue the original beautician.
“I hope she’s planning on suing the salon because that’s mad dangerous”, wrote one.
Another wrote: “Omg please tell me she is taking legal action”
Others were simply stunned at the incompetence of the first lash technician.
“Omg that must have been sooo painful!!!!”, said one sympathetic viewer.
One commenter summarised: “It’s mind boggling that someone can in good conscience do this to someone.”
