The Best False Lashes For Beginners: Magnetic Lashes Really Work!
AD | Sponsored Feature In Partnership With Lola’s Lashes
There’s no denying that false lashes instill more fear in many beauty enthusiasts than the prospect of lipstick transference or a dodgy fake tan. The majority of my friends would rather not fanny about with glue near their eyeballs, or stick small bits of plastic to their eyelids, for fear of getting it wrong – or worse, doing some damage to their vision before they’ve even sipped on a mojito. Despite the endless tutorials online, it’s easy to end up looking worse for wear because a lash is wonky / fluttering about in the wind / stuck about an inch away from your lash line, so its no surprise false lashes remain out of reach for a huge number of us (or become one added step we just can’t be bothered with.)
Too many times in my twenties I woke up to find false lashes stuck to my bedside table, or worse, half way down my cheek after forgetting to remove them before falling into bed at 3am. Big lashes were the epitome of Noughties style and I spent a small fortune on every type I could find – before inevitably losing one after a single wear and having to invest in a fresh box. Although I love the look of false lashes, and more importantly how they make me feel, the skill and faff involved in applying them over the years just became too much; when I did attempt to add a set of falsies to my look I’d end up covered in glue and feeling like something sharp was incessantly jabbing me in the cornea, so somewhere along the line I hung up my lashes for good – or so I thought.
Who knew the thing to take me out of false lash retirement would be, wait for it, magnetic lashes?
Originally a concept only available in Asia, magnetic lashes are now available on UK shores and one brand is leading the way in terms of quality, ease of use and extra strong hold: Lola’s Lashes.
Unlike many other brands, who offer an upper and lower lash with magnets that sandwich your lashes between them, Lola’s Lashes use a very clever and super easy to use magnetic liner that speeds up the whole process and makes it suited for even the most novice of lash lovers. The unique liner formula contains lots of tiny magnetic particles which attract the five tiny magnets on the rim of the lashes and keep them absolutely in place all day long; they’re even proven to stay attached in 75mph winds! Unlike traditional lashes there’s no mess or stress: a quick slick of liner is all you need, waiting a few seconds for it to dry before popping on the magnetic lashes.
I was prepared for this to be a complex process to get the hang of, but it’s SO easy it makes me wish these were available at the height of my lash loving period. Because of the magnetic liner the lashes (with five magnets for extra strong hold) are drawn to the perfect position and lock into place with only a few wiggles using your finger, making the whole process practically fool-proof and incredibly speedy. They stay put all day long and pop off as easily as they’re applied, staying in their magnetic box until you need them again and offering up to 30 wears; far better value than singular use lashes, and far more affordable than lash extensions, these are a wise investment for anyone wanting to boost their lash line.
Cruelty free, vegan and free from synthetic dyes, Lola’s Lashes are an absolute game-changer – whether you’re a long term lash lover, lash enthusiast, lash dabbler or lash novice. My little video shows how easy they are to apply, and how fab they look once they’re securely in place, so no matter your concern Lola’s Lashes magnetic lashes are sure to have you looking fabulous in no time at all.
