What are magnetic eyelashes?

There are various types of false lashes, some of which are disposable. They use gums and glues to adhere the false lashes to your existing lashes to create fuller extensions. Since the glue wears off, they will need reapplication every time we want to use them, causing the lashes to wear out over time. They can be made from various natural or synthetic materials.

Magnetic eyelashes are a type of false lash which use magnetic strips to make the extensions remain. The two strips are opened and moved over the lashes, then closed together to stay taught.
