Magnetic Lashes, Oh How I Love You So


I have really long lashes. I mean really, and they're naturally curved upwards already. The problem that I have is that they could use a volume boost. 
My mom thinks I'm crazy to even consider using false lashes, but sometimes I just like to add some extra flair to them without having to use a billion coats of mascara.

I have used many different brands of false lashes that you glue on, and honestly, more than half the time, I just can't get them on correctly. I end up getting so frustrated and taking them back off. I HATE the way the glue feels afterward too. Yuck.

I don't know if you guys have heard all the hype about magnetic lashes.
I have been seeing them everywhere on my social media. I saw some really mixed reviews on them, but I just had to try them myself. I was super curious.

My opinion on them??

In LOVE. 
I mean it.

They are soooooo much easier to apply. I can get them on in such a short amount of time. Also, if I don't get them on right, I can just take them off and reapply them. No sticky mess. 
And no, I have not pulled my lashes off in the process. (I mention that because I read a few stories about this happening!!! Ouch.)
You could also do that with the glue on lashes by the way...
Common sense, folks.
Don't yank them off!! With the magnetic ones, you simply use a finger/fingernail to slide between the magnets on each lash, and voila! They come off. 

Now, I own a couple different brands. Some use one magnet on each lash, while others use two.
These particular ones have two tiny magnets on each lash. You can tell which lashes go to which side because the are angled and flared toward either direction. 
There is a top lash and bottom lash that you apply to each eyelid. So, altogether, four lashes come in the cute little magnetic compact.

What I like to do is curl my clean, natural lashes. Do this in front of a mirror with some good lighting! Then, sit one lash on top of your natural lashes toward the end. Try not to make any big movements so that it won't fall off. Then, take the matching bottom lash and slowly lift up under your natural lash, lining both sets of magnets up. 
If that sounds difficult, it's really not.

Once you've done it a few times, it's really simple.

I love these lashes so much. They are reusable too! You can clean them very gently with water and let them air dry. I have done this and they're fine. Also, if you want them to last longer, you probably shouldn't apply mascara directly onto them, and you should also store them inside of the case when not in use. 
Take them off before getting into any water, like a shower or pool, waterpark, and before bed of course. 

Can people tell that they are fake??
Okay, so if they are close enough to your face, yes they might see the little magnets on top, but when they are on right, and you have curled your real lashes, to me, it doesn't show so much. Also, if you have black eyeliner on, you can't really tell. From far, obviously they will look more realistic. 
They are also so lightweight and feathery that I can't feel that I'm wearing them, even when worn all day. 

You can find these awesome lashes on Amazon.
