Best Magnetic Eyeliner And Lashes
Arishine Magnetic Eyeliner and Lashes Kit, Magnetic Eyeliner for Magnetic Lashes Set, With Reusable Lashes [5 Pairs]
Best Magnetic Eyeliner And Lashes is very nice product. I am a 57 year old female who has NEVER used liquid eyeliner until purchasing this product. Glue on falsies tend to irritate my sensitive eyes, even with glue for sensitive eyes, and I need a magnifying mirror to do anything close up on my make-up. Any time I’ve had glue on falsies, someone else has had to apply them for me, and I am not Kim Kardashian and I do not have a crew who follows me around for this purpose. ENTER the Airshine Magnetic Eyeliner & Eyelashes Kit! I was skeptical because I am a total novice at applying liquid eyeliner, I’ve always ONLY used pencil and Only on my lower lid.
This was going to take some video tutorial to master, and maybe a glass of wine to steady my hand. After viewing tips and tricks, I tackled the application in the privacy of my home, with no pressure for date night, prom, wedding, reunion, or any other glam worthy event.
The pictures you see are my First attempt, and it went rather well considering my aforementioned novice abilities … it took longer than just applying mascara, and there were a few expletives involved. The eyelashes I have applied in the photos are the 5th ones down on the left. I’m not quite dramatic enough for the “Housewives of Northern Virginia” versions on the right, yet… and I’m not a housewife, so there’s that. I wore these for a total of 10 hours, they stayed on but toward the end of those hours I noticed the inside and outside edges starting to lose adhesion. I attribute that to naturally occurring oils in the skin, or in my foundation. I think oils tend to lessen the magnetic ability of the liner. If we can find a way to combat that, I’m all for it. To date, I have used all of the lashes on the left side at least once. I do need some info on how to clean the little magnetic strips on the eyelashes, because residue from the liner adheres to them, and I need to remove that residue in order to continue using the lashes effectively.
Once the lashes were firmly attached, and properly placed, I was barely even aware of them. I did apply a light coat of waterproof mascara to my own lashes prior to applying the magnetics, only because my natural lashes are blonde or transparent. The magnetic liner is certainly more waterproof than the “practice” eyeliner I bought which “claims” to be waterproof. Magnetic liner needs to dry for about 2 minutes once applied, and I found that I got better adhesion if I applied two thin coats, rather than one coat. I had an issue with getting the liner on my lashes, and then the application of the magnetic lashes becomes a bit of a pain when they try to adhere to my lashes instead of the line I created on my lid. I just had to beat them into submission.
Also, to press the magnetic strips onto the dry magnetic liner, I couldn’t use the metal lash applicator that was included with the kit because, well, it’s also metal. So, I happened to have plain mascara wands that I purchased from amazon, and they have plastic handles, and that is what I used to push/position the lashes into place on the magnetic liner. It worked well. After this application shown in the photos, I went over to my son and daughter-in-law’s under the guise of seeing my grandson and having dinner… My daughter-in-law kept staring at my eyes and said, “Your make-up looks Amazing!” I fessed up and told her. She said she couldn’t tell at all! Perhaps on date night with my BF, I will try one of the lashes on the right….
Oh, and I’m still on the first tube of liner. Keep it tightly closed between uses, shake it vigorously to evenly distribute the iron ions, and it should last a while. I hope they sell just the liner, because the lashes are pretty darn sturdy and will likely outlast the liner. Remember, I am a total beginner at falsies and eyeliner, so If I can do it… anyone can do it!Promised Review by K. M. Bishop
