There's nothing quite like the look of false eyeslashes. They open up your eyes, make them appear bigger, add glamour... but they can be a right pain in the you know where to put on! Sure, Tabby makes it sound easy peasy lemon squeasy in her eyelash application article, but some of us are just too cack-handed to get it right so give up trying. Until now.
A US-based company, One Two Cosmetics, has created magnetic false eyelashes. I know. They sound a little scary, because, well - magnets near your eyes? Well, first thing I did on seeing these fluttery pretties was check out their FAQ to see if they're safe to wear. According to their FAQ, One Two Cosmetics' lashes underwent independent testing through Princeton Consumer Research on the prolonged wear of magnetic lash use and not one of the subjects had an issue with them. So that's good!
So how do One Two lashes work? Basically you take one false lash, line it up above your natural lashes, then once you're satisfied with the fit, you take the second lash and apply it under your natural lash line and the two click together to create fab falsies. Boom. Just like that.
Magnets though? Really? Are they clunky? Do they weigh down the eye? Not these! One Two Cosmetics micro-lashes use micro-magnets - two little red dots - on either lash that sandwich your natural lashes together to create a realistic but glamorous look.
Can you tell I'm excited? I'm excited. So excited I'm returning to copywriter form and sounding like an ad. (This isn't an ad.)
The best bit? Unlike what feels like most online-based cosmetic companies they DO ship internationally - even to New Zealand. YUSS!! Bring on pay day!
So are you a fan of the falsies? Do you struggle, like me, to apply the usual kind? Are these totally tempting you right now? Chat away!
