Why do celebs always seem to be born with most luscious, god-given eyelashes?
Well, news flash, the truth is they’re not. They’re faking it too. But, at least when you’ve got red carpet status you can pay someone to apply them perfectly for you every time.
For most of us to achieve that level of uber-glam means utter chaos: One false lash stuck to the bathroom sink, the other stuck to your finger, eye makeup ruined, natural eyelashes stuck together and oh, weren’t we supposed to leave the house ten minutes ago?!
The only other option is to turn to professional eyelash extensions. But these can amount to a small fortune. An initial application can cost several hundred dollars and then you need to return for expensive refills every couple of weeks.
Not to mention the health aspects. A Japanese study determined that eyelash extensions may cause ocular disorders and every single one of the eyelash glues they studied contained formaldehyde, which is not only toxic but can cause keratoconjunctivitis (inflammation of the cornea – ouch!).
Here’s the Secret To Celebrity Lashes At Home
But, what if I told you that you could get your hands on a pair of long, thick, celebrity-quality lashes that didn’t require any glue – AT ALL – for them to stay put?
It’s true, they exist! Thanks to One Two Cosmetics there’s now a product known as “magnetic lashes”. Designed for the false eyelash klutz, like myself, they not only look incredible but they’re reusable and simple to master.
It may be difficult to get your head around the concept of magnetic eyelashes at first, but listen up!
Known as One Two Lash, the magnetic lashes are made up of not one, but two lash strips per lash. So, rather than placing a single falsie strip on top of your natural lash, you’ll actually be creating a lash “sandwich” with two strips.
Both strips contain a miniature magnet so once they’ve sandwiched your natural lash, they just click together like, well, a magnet!
Here’s how they work:
- Open your stylish magnetic carry case and remove a “top” magnetic lash. That is, one that does not have a red dot on it. Red dots indicate a “bottom” lash.
- Place it on top of your natural lash and line up the outside edge with the edge of your own lash line. Leave it balancing here.
- Select another lash strip, this time it must have a red dot. Place it under your natural lashes, in line with the top One Two Lash.
- Slowly move it up closer to the top lash until it automatically clicks into place, neatly sandwiching your natural lash between them.
- Voila! Instant celebrity status!
Removing One Two Lash is as simple as slowly pushing the magnets apart. With the soft pads of your index finger, and thumb, gently slide the two magnets away from each other. Do NOT pull the lashes forward. Gently clean your magnetic eyelashes before storing them back in the magnetic beauty case. One Two Cosmetics even makes a gentle eye cleanser called One Two Wash which is specially formulated for your magnetic lashes.
A World First in Beauty
One Two Lash are officially the world’s first magnetic eyelashes and those miniature magnets were designed especially for them.
Katy Stoka, the fabulous woman behind the magnetic lash, even invented her own patented micro-magnetic technology to fulfil her dream of making beauty effortless. Fed-up with messy glue and fiddly falsies she decided that she needed to take matters into her own hands. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
So, do they actually work?
Well, if you won’t take my word for it here’s some thoughts from some other sources you might know:
- Teen Vogue called them “a beauty game-changer,”
- Cosmopolitan declared “…where money can actually buy time and happiness”
- Popsugar: “I’m hopelessly addicted to magnetic false lashes and never turning back.”
And Allure chose action over words and crowned the magnetic lashes with a Breakthrough Innovative Beauty Product award.
But Are Magnetic Eyelashes Affordable?
Surely there must be a weighty price tag involved here, right? It all sounds too good to be true!
Well, no actually. One Two Lash are completely affordable for anyone. They allow you to get the full bat-my-eyelashes Hollywood look for just $69 and for that price you get two complete sets of reusable lashes. The more times you wear your magnetic lashes, the more money you save in the long run!
Why would you pay hundreds of dollars for salon visits, or continue to waste hundreds of hours in beauty anguish when you could snap-and-go and be immediately out turning heads at a barbecue, a beach party, a movie date or your own big glam event?
Now… will you be choosing Natural, Bold or Accent?
