Magnetic lashes that actually work
My youngest sister, Wylyn, introduced me to these soft magnetic lashes a couple of months ago because one of her friends was using them, a lot!
Wylyn said to me, "They look very natural! And you don’t have to put on any makeup - mascara, eyeshadow, foundation, whatever, no need! You don’t even have to draw on eyeliner!"
And I was like a fish on a hook. Sold!
I’ve always been using glue-on lashes simply because I didn't know any better or similar alternatives that would stick just as well.
Magnetic lashes vs lash extensions
I, for one, am so reluctant to try eyelash extensions for fear of having allergic reactions to the semi-permanent glue adhesive that's often being used.
But more than that, I can't for the life of me imagine going to sleep, waking up, washing my face and wearing these super long lashes day in and day out for six weeks or more! Not to mention, how hideous-looking they all become overtime when they start falling off lash by lash. I won't be able to resist pulling the rest of the remaining faux lashes out and whatever's left of my own lashes, inevitably.
So, I really appreciate being able to remove the magnetic lashes at the end of the day, or whenever I want. Because truth be told, I hate wearing these things for extended periods of time, simply because they can become really annoying!
I can’t rub my eyes. And sometimes when a single eyelash decides to be naughty, curling inwards instead of out, it’s super pokey and I’ll start tearing like nobody’s business. Of course, I wanna look nice, but I also wanna be free.
I wanna be ME!
Best magnetic eyelashes
Anyway, my sister was thinking of getting a pair of magnetic lashes to try so I thought okay, why not? Just give it a go, and I can tell you, I have been using magnetic lashes ever since! In fact, I’ve been wearing them, every other day, for more than six months!
I usually just bring them along with me, in the accompanying posh little pouch, and wear them in the car - while I'm waiting for the lights to change at the traffic junction.
Now before we go on any further, let me explain how easy it is to put them on. No it won't even take two seconds and no worries if you can’t at first.
Remember, practice makes perfect!
