Should you try magnetic lashes?
A few months back, I shared my experience wearing magnetic false lashes for the first time. I loved the ease of use but wasn’t a huge fan at how dramatic the style I got was. It was too much. At least for every day wear. I decided that it was worth it to buy another style.
OpulenceMD Beauty has a line called “Less is More”. I figured it was a good starting place for a less dramatic lash. I purchase the style “Say Less” The lashes are definitely still on the long side, but it’s not nearly as thick as my Freedom style lashes. These look wispy and delicate.
My Freedom lashes were good for a few hours but I wouldn’t dare wear them for a full 8 hour work day. I’m just not about that life. After experimenting with “Say Less” I decided to put it to the test and wear them to work.
My day job at the moment is in retail sales. I wear business casual attire and am constantly on my feet walking around and talking to people. With the whole COVID situation, it’s very important that I refrain from touching my eyes throughout the day. I didn’t want lashes to exacerbate any desire to touch my face.
I felt confident, feminine and pretty while wearing Say Less. I even think they helped me look a little more “awake” than usual. The lashes stayed on very well. I checked throughout the day (paranoid, as it was my first all day trial run) and never had to adjust its placement.
Because the lashes are long, you will feel them touch your upper lid when you open your eyes very big, but that’s about it.
I should mention that I was rushing when I applied my lashes. I was running late and quickly put on the magnetic liner. It got a little messy, so I tried to wipe away excess with my fingertips and then put a little bronzer on my eyelids. It probably took me 2 to 3 minutes from start to finish.
I ended up getting several compliments from coworkers. I’m looking forward to making this a regular, or semi-regular thing.
So, Should you try magnetic lashes?
It’s definitely worth trying. If the novelty isn’t enough of a draw they actually are much easier for beginner beauty enthusiast to apply. The lashes I’ve been using are made by an eye doctor who claims that they’re safer than using traditional eyelash glue.
Price point wise, I’m very pleased. The lashes cost $45. I got 3 pairs of faux mink lashes, magnetic liner and an applicator. Each pair is supposed to be good for up to 25 wears. In theory, I should get 75 uses out of the purchase. So about $0.60 per wear. Not bad at all for magnetic lashes.
My set did not come with a case, but I’m fine with keeping it in tray in was packaged in.
I’m so happy with these so far. I want to try more styles. I may need to join their premium membership club. If I do, I’ll report back with my thoughts.
