Have you ever watched a beauty tutorial and wondered how that guru popped on a pair of falsies so quickly? You’re not alone. False eyelashes are notoriously tricky to apply, even harder to remove, and often leave the eye sticky with a bit of glue residue. On the other hand, lash extensions are an investment and require major upkeep. What’s a person to do if they want the look of long and luscious lashes, but mascara alone isn’t enough to create the desired effect? Enter: magnetic lashes, the less complicated cousin of the falsie that’s easy to apply and remove without leaving behind a sticky mess.

Magnetic lashes work in two ways: they can be attached by using two magnetic strips that snap over the lash line, or you can apply a magnetic eyeliner before you place the lash.

And since they don’t require lash glue, they may be a safer option for some folks. “Lash glues can be very toxic as they contain ethyl cyanoacrylate and parabens, which can cause skin irritations,” says optometrist Dr. Arian Fartash. “Many times, people have a sensitivity to the glue that traditional falsies are applied with, so for this reason, [magnetic lashes] can be better to use.”

Below, we scoured customer reviews and looked to some of our favorite Youtubers to find the 12 best magnetic lashes on the market. Plus, we consulted Dr. Fartash about everything you need to know on the topic.

Are magnetic lashes safe?

These high-tech falsies are safe if you proceed with caution. “Magnetic lashes can cause the same problems as strip lashes if not taken care of or removed properly—things like loss of lashes, conjunctivitis, and blepharitis,” explains Dr. Fartash. “The wearer must remove the liner properly, as we don’t want it to clog the lash pores.”

Are magnetic lashes re-useable?

Just like standard falsies, magnetic lashes can last a long time if they’re taken care of. Dr. Fartash also recommends cleaning the lashes after every use. “I recommend using a lash brush to gently rub the soap on the falsies and loosen up debris before washing with warm water,” says Dr. Fartash. “A great cleanser that I recommend to my patients is the WeLoveEyes Foaming Cleaner and the Eyelid Margin Cleansing Brush.”
