Have you seen ad’s for magnetic eyelashes all over social media? So have I and I was absolutely tempted to buy all of them! The holidays are coming up and this seemed the perfect time to give them a try.
The year I got married I had eyelash extensions where I had to had them professionally placed and touched up every 8 weeks or so. It was really pricy and soon after the wedding I stopped having them filled. I think I finally had to pull the last three off because they looked ridiculous waving about at the corner of my eye all by themselves.
Price was a big deal for me this time around. I looked at some of the most popular brands and they were beautiful lashes, but for one set of eyelashes and one magnetic liner it was close to $70. Since I wasn’t sure if I would like them or not, I wasn’t willing to spend that much to try them out.
So I went to Amazon ( because 90% of what I buy comes from there these days) and searched around for some lower priced options. These lashes I ended up with had over 3000 reviews and had 4.5 stars. Plus I got 10 sets of eyelashes and 2 tubes of magnetic eyeliner for $28! This was something I could get on board with. Since I purchased my kit, the price is even lower ($21.24 at the time of writing this post).
My skill level with eyelashes was definitely beginner. The only time I’ve applied eyelashes was one Halloween when I was an angel, but I made my boyfriend (now husband) glue them on me because I could not get them on correctly. These are perfect for a beginner.
How to apply your magnetic eyelashes
- Shake the tube of magnetic eyeliner.
- Wipe the excess eyeliner off in the tube.
- Apply a thin but wide layer of magnetic liner onto your lash line, being sure to extend it to the outside of your eye.
- Let dry fully.
- DO NOT LOOK UP! The liner takes a minute to dry and if you look up at the ceiling it will get on your eyelid.
- Apply a second coat if you want.
- Grasp the eyelash that you have chosen with the tweezers or your fingers.
- Measure the eyelash against your eye and trim one magnet off if it’s too long for your comfort.
- Start from the outside and place along your lash line. It should stick right on.
How to remove your magnetic eyelashes
- Grasp the lash at the outermost corner of your eye and slip a nail under the magnet and slowly remove.
- Clean the magnets with eye makeup remover and a cloth.
- Clean the lash line with makeup remover and a cloth, castor oil or Mary Kay eye makeup remover. After I made the video, someone told me that Mary Kay eye makeup remover does the trick with no issues!
- Store the lashes in the case after they are cleaned to protect them and help them keep their shape.
Where to wear your magnetic eyelashes
- Fall Family Pics/Christmas card pics
- Beach(just maybe not in the water!)
Where NOT to wear your magnetic eyelashes
- MRI suite-haven’t tried it, but I could imagine they might get snatched right off your face when those big magnets turn on! YIKES!
- Bed-probably no harm, but never a good practice to wear makeup to bed.

Just a warning though, your friends and family will get used to you wearing them and if you decide to take a day off they won’t like it! LOL.
I hope this inspires you to give them a try!
