Magnetic eyeliner and lashes work using the concept of magnetic force. The magnetic lashes are attached to a lash band that have five tiny, lightweight, and inconspicuous magnets on it. Meanwhile, magnetic eyeliner contains FDA-approved iron oxide - a safe and oft-used element in makeup essentials - which has magnetic properties instantly bonds to the magnets on the lash band. This eliminates the need for hazardous glue, making the process a lot quicker, easier, and safer.

Absolutely. The lash and liner set is lab (and customer)-tested to be smudgeproof, prone to hooded and/or oily eyelids, and have an impressive hold of up to 10 hours with comfortable wear - truly, the ideal companion for long hours at work or a night out with friends.

How are magnetic lashes and liner applied?

Now that you know how magnetic eyeliner and lashes work, it’s time to learn how they are applied. It’s actually pretty simple. Do your makeup as you normally do and just swap out your normal liner for Glamnetic liner, or use it on top of your favorite liner. Make sure to apply a semi-thick coat of magnetic eyeliner on your eyelids. Wait for it to be semi-dry (80% we recommend) and then apply the lashes! Pinch and press down lashes to lock them in place or “set” them. Because the magnets are attached to the eyeliner, not your lashes, you won’t accidentally peel off natural lashes in the process or risk glue getting into your eye.
You’ll notice how strong the hold is if you tug on the lashes slightly. This is how you know you’ve applied it properly!


You may also trim the lashes to any length as there are 5 magnets on the lash! Make sure that edges are magnets (no band sticking out).

Taking them off is also just as easy. Just use warm/hot water to wash off your eye makeup and you’ll notice it start to dissolve! A hot shower should do the trick! You can also check out our detailed guide on how to put on magnetic lashes on our website (YouTube tutorial included).

Easy to apply, easy to take off, with almost zero waiting time, zero mess, and zero side effects --- it’s easy to see why more and more people are making the switch to Glamnetic magnetic lashes. Isn’t it time you do too?
