Relatively new to the scene, Magnetic Eyelashes are the makeup world’s answer to anyone who’s dealt with the struggle of applying lashes at the precise moment when glue is tacky but not completely set. (And of course, there’s the removal ordeal, which if done improperly, can mean sacrificing a few of your natural lashes in the process.) Formerly a niche category in the world of false lashes, magnetic options are now going fully mainstream with popular mass brands like Kiss and Ardell making versions at price points that won’t break the bank. Magnetic lashes are also becoming available in a wide variety of shapes (i.e. clusters and strips), so they can be a great option no matter what lash look you’re going for.
Who it's for: If you’re looking for a reusable and gentler alternative to traditional falsies, very over using lash glue, or want to add even more volume to existing lash extensions but can't get glue on them.
How to use it: For starters, forget everything you know about applying a traditional false lash. Magnetic Lashes Kit work by “sandwiching” your natural lashes in between two interlocking strips of false lashes, that stick together with the help of micromagnets. Begin by gently placing the upper strip on top of your lashes and then “locking” them into place by bringing the bottom strip underneath your lashes and letting the magnets snap them together. To remove them, gently rub the lashes with your fingers in a side-by-side motion (don’t pull or tug) to let the magnets naturally come apart.
