Faking It With Ardell's Magnetic Liner and Lash
Welcome back to try it Tuesday! 🥰
Today I'm getting fake with it--fake lashes, that is! 🤭🤣
False lashes are a part of beauty that I've always admired, I absolutely
the big, beautiful doe eye that lashes give. They take dramatic eyeshadow looks to the next level 👑 and when paired with a nude eye and red lip💄, can give you a fantastic throwback vintage look worthy of the silver screen. 💃📺
...Unfortunately, I have an adhesive allergy. False lashes applied with glue leave me looking less red carpet ready, and more "have you seen a doctor for that 😬"-esqe.
You can imagine how excited I was to see an option for false lashes that eliminated the need for lash adhesive!🥳
- Retails for $15.00 💸
- Includes lashes, brush, and liner ✔
- Magnetic Lash and Iron Oxide based gel liner replace the need for adhesives 🚫
- Lashes are mid density 👍
How to Apply:
✔Line the upper lash line with the provided magnetic gel liner. I found that using a smaller brush than the one provided made the application easier, as the formula of the liner is very tacky.
✔ Let the liner dry. This step is critical, not allowing enough dry time will cause the lash not to adhear to the liner properly. When the liner doesn't have enough time ⏳ to dry, small patches of the liner will lift onto the magnetic strip along the false lash. Give it time! ⏰
✔ After 2 minutes, test the liners dryness by gently tapping with a clean and dry fingertip. If there is no transfer of the liner to your fingertip, wait 30 more seconds and begin lash application.
✔ Remove lashes gently from the package. If they are stuck, roll them off the package with your finger, minimizing the stress points. Rough handling of the lashes can cause the small magnets to come loose.
✔ Align the base of the lash with the dried magnetic liner, and gently tap into place, making any adjustments necessary to get a comfortable fit.
✔ When ready to remove lashes, lift with a rolling motion to minimize any irritation to the lash line.
⏳ Final Thoughts:
I think these lashes are a ⭐fantastic⭐ alternative for people who are unable to use traditional, adhesive based false lashes. 🙈 They weren't overly difficult to apply, and held fairly well for the 4 hours that I wore them. For me, they suit my needs perfectly, and provide a solution for a problem that has kept me out of the lash game for years. 🙌🙌
The downside, these lashes dont hold as strongly 💪 as a quality glue adhesive. Even with exact application of the liner, they sit slightly above 👆where a glued lash would sit on the lashes. I think for people that are able to use adhesive, these could be fun to try, but they won't replace your traditional lashes for hold and placement. The liner based system also limits versitility of makeup looks. To use this system, it requires a semi-thick to thick black liner along the top lash. If you aren't into that cat 😻 eye, winged liner 🖊 look, this isn't 🚫 the lash for you.
Overall, I'm pleased with them 😄 and will definitely be wearing them again since traditional glue based lashes arn't an option. I think they gave a soft glam appearance, and were well worth the $15. With gentle use, I believe these lashes will last for at least 10 applications, if not more. 💛
