Review: Glam by Manicare Magnetic Lashes

Ok, ok, ok... I know that I've been super excited about new things recently, but can we please just talk about one of my favourite innovations from this year so far? Glam by Manicare has released a new line of magnetic lashes, and these babies AREN'T magnetic lashes as we currently know them, but rather, they are a whole new kettle of fish entirely, and babes, you're going to love them!

Glam by Manicare has come out with some serious winners, and this might be one of my favourite things from them yet. For those who struggle with the glue and lashes routine, this might be one for you to click 'add to cart' on!

All you need to get started is the Glam by Manicare Magnetising Eyeliner - slick this over the eyelids, let it dry down (make sure you don't open your lids too early, because this takes a while to dry down), then let that do all the work by lining up the lashes to the eyeliner. Like magic (or really, science, where there's metal in the eyeliner), the lashes stay ON. Trust me on this one, I rode in the Sling Shot at the Sydney Royal Easter Show recently, and these babies stayed on the whole time - G-force be damned!

There are, however, a couple of drawbacks to this product however. I've been lucky so far in that the lashes seem to fit my eyes, and I haven't had to trim them. This may be tricky for others with smaller eyes,as there are only three magnets with one on either end, and the third in the middle. In order to actually trim it, you'd have to cut it in two places, then trim accordingly. Not the end of the world, but it does make it a little harder to deal with for the unlucky ones.

Secondly, for those who struggle with liquid liner, placing this right onto skin with a high chance of getting it wrong is a risky move. Thankfully, you can always go over the spots that you need to cover with black eyeshadow and an angled brush, like using pencil on a piece of paper to trace an outline before adding the paint, then applying your magnetic liner.

They are easy to work around, and while there are only two versions to pick from currently, I'm hoping that there will be more eventually. I love that these are easy to apply and may be easier for those who struggle with lash glue and hugging the contour of your lids. Fingers are the easiest things to handle these lashes with, and the eyeliner retails for $39.99, while the lashes are $15.99 for each pair.

I'll be uploading a video in the near future of exactly how I road tested these babies, for those who are interested - there is screaming, swearing and a lot of laughter! These lashes are available now at Priceline. What do you think of them? Would you wear them?
