If you’ve seen the magnetic eyelashes online and you’re anything like me, you’ve wanted to try them – but just couldn’t bite the bullet due to their high price point. I did not want to spend over $50.00 on one set of eyelashes that;
- I wasn’t sure I would like.
- one of my kids would try to eat, or put on the cat.
While I was surfing the Wish app, I found a listing for falsies and I thought then that I would go ahead and do a search for magnetic eyelashes. My hopes were not high that they would be good quality, so I wasn’t going to pay more than $10.00. Listings fluctuate in price and change at any time but the ones that I bought were only $1.00! For a dollar, I’ll try anything I’m curious about because if it’s totally crappy, I’m not going to stress the money wasted.
The eyelashes arrived about 2 weeks later. They came with no instructions and no indication of what eyelash goes where, or if it matters. One of the eyelashes was slightly bent but I’ve since been able to bend it back in to place. Also, one of the magnets is a little bigger than the others, but with eyeliner the magnets really aren’t noticeable.
When you apply them, no glue is necessary. You just place one of the eyelashes carefully on your upper eyelashes. Then, carefully put the bottom set up to your eyelashes so that you’re sandwhiching in your real eyelashes in between the falsies. Then, that’s it! Easy right? No stinky glue, no glue to peel off your eyelashes later. When you’re ready to take them off, you just put your thumb and fore finger together and rub them in the opposite direction to get the magnets to seperate. Then, just put them back in the case when you’re done.
Through about 10 minutes of trial and error, I did figure out that the eyelashes do have to be placed in specific places. I’m unsure if it’s intentional or not, but one thing that I thought was kind of weird was that the pieces that go together have a longer and a shorter end on opposite ends. I would have pictured that the eyelashes with the longer lashes on the same side would go together and that you would where them so that the longer end is on the outside of your eyes. Does that make sense? 🙂
Here are my thoughts on these eyelashes!
- I like the length. If you aren’t a fan of obvious false eyelashes, these may not be your favorite. You could trim them I suppose. I love having very long wispy eyelashes, so the length was great.
- I liked that they had a realistic amount of lashes. Some of the falsies are extremely dense and almost have a feather type of fullness when you look across them. I love those too. But, these are more comparable to normal eyelash density, maybe a little less sparse depending on the person.
- Once you get the hang of them, they are easy to use.
- Shipping on Wish can take a very long time. These were some what quick, having received them just under two weeks from the date that I ordered.
- You can place the eyelashes back in to the case when you are done with them and reapply the case cover to keep them clean and protected.
- If you don’t place them properly and put the upper eyelashes so that it’s resting on your skin and not your eyelash, it will pinch your skin and is pretty painful when you go to apply the bottom eyelashes.
- Magnet sizes vary.
- No instructions on how to apply them or care for them.
- The magnet & glue on one of them that I received is almost none. The magnet is so tiny that there is just a small amount of glue holding it on. I assume it may only last me a few more wears. I’ll have to look and see what would be best to use if I decide to try to attach them together if they do break.\
Overall thoughts on the magnetic eyelashes from Wish:
Overall I loved them. I will definitely use them again and I actually think I will place an order for about 5 of them the next time that I order. I understand that the quality isn’t always going to be amazing when you’re purchasing a product that is so inexpensive. So, with a few sets I should be able to piece together some that will go together nicely in the event some of them are bent or break or have magnetic issues.
What about you gorgeous? Do you think you’ll try some of these? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear what you think.
