Product Battle: Duo Brush-On Adhesive vs Revlon Lash Adhesive

Hi Bellas,

As I was playing with my makeup, I noticed that I had a lot of similar products.  It would be interesting to do new blog series called "Product Battle", where I place two products head to head which are in similar categories, and see which performs best.  I hope this helps you when you're trying to decide which is the better product to purchase.  Today I'm talking about Brush On Eyelash Adhesive, a must-have in my collection.
