If you’ve been following my Youtube channel then you likely know that I rarely wear false lashes. I love how they look, but sometimes the glue can be incredibly messy, sticky, and if the glue isn’t tacky enough then you run the risk of ruining your entire eye makeup look. For this reason, when I first heard about magnetic lashes, I was immediately curious to try them out for myself. No glue? No messiness? No waiting for the glue to get tacky? Yep, count me in!
Ardell recently released their new Magnetic Eyelashes at London Drugs. These lashes retail for $19.99 and since you don’t use glue to apply them, you can really re-use and re-wear them over and over again. I have worn mine about 8 times now and they are in perfect condition still. The style I like most is their Double 110 lash, it’s a bit softer, fluffier, and more natural looking.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: these must be so difficult to apply! And, initially – they are. They take some practice getting used to, but once you do they are a total dream to wear. Don’t worry if they take you a few tries to apply, just like applying regular lashes – these have a learning curve. After a couple days of working with these, I found that I was able to apply them super quickly.
1. Position the upper lash on top of your lashes, you almost want to position it on the edge of your eyelid.
2. Take the under lash and hold it underneath your lashes. The magnet on the bottom lash will drag the upper lash off your lid and onto the lash line.
3. If it drags it out too much on the outer corner, just lightly pinch them together and push them in towards your lash line. (Don’t worry, the magnetics won’t hurt or pinch your eyes as you do this!)
