Read This Before Shelling Out For Those Magnetic False Lashes
When I first heard about One Two Cosmetics’ ingenious faux eyelash, One Two Lash, I immediately wanted to get my hands on them. One Two Lashes are the first false eyelashes to adhere to the eyelashes with magnets!top eyelash vendors
As someone with rather modest lashes and little patience when it comes to applying conventional false lashes, I’m perpetually in the market for an innovative lash product to basically give me lashes from nowhere (I know, such high expectations!). In early August, I pre-ordered a set of the Original Lash ($69). (The pre-order price was easier to swallow than the lashes’ current price.) After months of not really knowing when I would get my new magnetic lashes, they finally arrived shortly before Halloween.
Because the lashes received a lot of hype before many of the One Two Cosmetics customers received their lashes—and because they’re vegan and chemical-free!—I wanted to share my experience with them here—just in case you were thinking of picking up a set before the holidays.
For each eye, there are two strips of lashes, a strip that goes underneath the top eyelash and a strip that goes on top of the top eyelashes. Both strips have a small magnetic piece in the center. The bottom piece has a red dot on the magnetic piece to help you remember that’s the bottom lash.
With about 40 minutes of tedious practice, I was able to secure the magnetic lashes. There really was a bit of trial and error involved, but now I can get them on in a minute or less. There’s no glue needed.
The magnetic lashes are removed by using the thumb and forefinger to slide the magnetic strips apart. The lashes should never be pulled off the eyes. One Two Lashes can be used indefinitely with proper care (if you want to keep using them, of course). They may also be used with mascara provided the lashes are gently cleaned after wearing. The lashes come in a luxe box with designated magnetized sections in which to store the lash strips.
