It’s no secret that we’re all about to approach Phase 2 this coming Friday. But as our favourite beauty salons open their doors post Circuit Breaker, we find ourselves struggling to book a slot to get our lashes refilled thanks to the influx of like-minded ladies who have been deprived of getting their lashes fixed. While they flock to the salons, there are, however, some of us who’d much rather the option of dolling up with trendy magnetic lashes that mock the look of falsies while still embracing your naturally grown lashes.
A force to be reckoned with, these game-changing magnetic lashes might just change your views about falsies. Gone are the days where you have to struggle to keep your falsies up, deal with situations where your lashes hang askew from your eyelids or even coated with gobs of glue. Luckily, for beginners and enthusiasts alike there are many brands in the beauty industry that are now offering magnetic lashes to give your eyes that instant lift that’s almost or just as good as getting your extensions done.
But how does it stick? In most cases, a set of magnetic lashes usually comes with a 2-in-1 liquid eyeliner that functions as an eyeliner and an adhesive for the lashes. It’s hassle-free and it’s perfect especially for those who are great at drawing the perfect fleek. Simply, draw a line, as close to the lash line as possible, and apply the lashes on and you’re as good as new! The great thing about these magnetic lashes is that if you mess up, all you have to do is to pull the magnetic strips and reposition your lashes. It’s also reusable so you don’t have to keep repurchasing them as often as you did with your normal falsies.
Depending on the brand that you’re going for, you can reuse your magnetic lashes for up to 30 to 50 wears. For instance, Glamnetic’s magnetic lashes are durable enough to last more than 30 application, whereas Uptown Lashes are able to last you through 50 wears.
Unlike normal falsies, cleaning your magnetic lashes is much simpler. In fact, you don’t have to clean them as long as you apply your mascara before using your magnetic lashes. However, this doesn’t apply to all magnetic lashes, as some brands would advise you to clean your lashes with their own cleansers to extend their longevity.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the more popular favourites that you should consider if you’re looking to try on magnetic lashes:
