Urban Lash Magnetic False Lashes Review

When I first heard about Magnetic Lashes, I immediately wanted to get them.

Magnetic Eyelashes are false eyelashes that adhere to the eyelashes with magnets! No Glue needed!
I used to wear false lashes all the time when I was younger but got frustrated with the amount of time it took to apply them.

How Magnetic False Lashes Work

For each eye, there are two strips of lashes, a strip that goes underneath the upper eyelash and a strip that goes on top of the upper eyelashes. Both strips have a small magnetic piece in the center and sandwich your lashes between the false lashes.

With about 40 minutes of tedious practice, I was able to secure the magnetic lashes.

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.

They can be used indefinitely with proper care. 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.

How Magnetic False Lashes Worked for Me

I wanted so badly to love these—but I was disappointed.

My problems were really about the way the lashes looked.

The lashes don’t really fit around the outer curve of the eyelid, which gives them an abrupt look and makes them difficult to blend in.

From some angles, they looked okay, but because the strips aren’t curved, they lay straight along the lash line, rather than following the natural curve of the eyelid. This resulted in a corner of the lash strip noticeable sticking out. 
Because of the magnetic strip in the middle, the lash strips aren’t bendable, either.

I also noticed the magnetic lashes didn’t apply close to the lash line so there is a space between the eyelid and lashes.

These lashes would certainly suffice for photos (but not close ups) and for festive costumes and/ or party wear but a pair of lashes from the drugstore would also suffice for those purposes.

Save your money and pick up a beautiful set of lashes by Ardell, they offer numerous varieties of false lashes, available at your average drugstore.

I wanted to give them one last shot, I decided to apply a little more eyeliner and mascara to “blend” the magnetic false lashes—and then wear them in public. Maybe I was being too critical of the lashes this whole time…

Unfortunately I am not convinced - They look too straight—and they awkwardly start in the middle instead of the entire lash line.

After a while they look like they are falling off - the outer edge of the magnetic lashes remains straight rather than conforming to the contour of the eye.

My Final Thoughts

My initial feeling about Urban Lashes hasn’t changed. I love the concept of magnetic false lashes, but these just didn’t look right on my eyes.
Hopefully they will come out with curved / curvable magnetic lashes in the future.
