It’s been a little while since I reviewed lashes or even created some looks for a blog post so I’m really excited to share todays post! I’m so excited to be getting creative with makeup again and have a few more posts planned including a collaboration with Alice which will be exciting! But for now, here is my review of Magnetic Eyes lashes!
Magnetic Eyes lashes were made by and for people who struggle to use glue on lashes. The way their products work is that you get two lash strips per eye which have tiny magnets attached to them. These magnets go above and below your natural lash and stay in place thanks to the magnets. They’re gentle, hygienic, re-usable and SO much easier to use than faffing around with glue and possibly ruining your makeup in the process of application. They’re cruelty-free and chemical free, too!
So you are advised to do your full face of makeup as usual, including your mascara as it’ll make the lashes blend in better. There are two ways you can apply Magnetic Eyes lashes as displayed on the website. The first way is to use them as they are, simply balance the top lash (with the magnets attached underneath) on top of your lashes. Then bring the bottom lash (with the magnets attached on top) underneath to get them in place and well attached. I have quite small and almond shaped eyes so I did have to trim mine down slightly and bend them around a bit to make sure they followed my lash line.
The second way that’s recommended (which I personally didn’t actually try) is to trim the bottom lashes down to just the parts with the magnets on. This way you can place the magnets one at a time making them a bit more precise and they will probably look a tad more natural as there won’t be as many lashes. I like the fuller look though, so I went for the first kind of application!
On the first application, it did take a bit of fiddling to figure out how to get them on right. However, once I’d sussed the best way to get them closest to the lash line and in the right position, they stayed on like a dream! There was no horrible gloopy glue or irritation from it to deal with. If I don’t feel like wearing them for the entire day, I can just take them off and my mascara is intact making the look still easily wearable. The thing I really love about them aswell is that if you need to go from the office to a party, you can bring them with you, clip them on and accentuate your appearance with minimal effort.
I’ve worn the lashes a few times now and can tell I still have a few uses left which I never got with usual lashes as I could never properly get all of the glue off. I’d really love to try the ‘Sass’ ones aswell as they look perfect for a more every day and natural look. They currently retail for £11.99 and you can find them on their site here! I’d highly recommend them for any beauty lover and anyone looking for a more simple way to get long, luscious lashes.
Have you ever used Magnetic Eyes lashes?
