Which is better glue or magnetic eyelashes?

Magnetic eyelashes can be less irritating and are easier to clean afterwards, since they don't require glue. Magnetic eyelashes are simply a new way to achieve beautiful eyelashes and only for a fraction of the time you use them on glue. They are cost-effective and you can safely use them without making your face dirty. Instead of using glue to fix the eyelashes, which not only leaves a mess later, but could also cause some serious allergic reactions, magnetic eyelashes, as the name suggests, stick to the eyelashes like a magnet on a magnetic eyeliner applied to the eyelid (see our blog post to see how apply your liquid eyeliner).

That said, if applied, removed and cared for properly, both magnetic lashes and glued lashes are good options if you're looking to enhance your natural lashes. To use the glue, apply a thin layer to the band of the eyelash strip, wait for it to dry and get a sticky texture (usually about 30 seconds), and then place the strip in place on the eyelid. In fact, iron oxides are usually included in standard black or brown eyeliner to give it color, only in a much lower concentration that's not enough to keep magnetic eyelashes in place. The biggest drawback of both types of magnetic lashes is that they don't look as natural as adhesive lashes.

Now, I'm going to give you five solid reasons why you should use magnetic eyelashes on glue or stick them on your eyelashes. However, it is precisely for this reason that I strongly suggest that you switch from using glue on your eyelashes to magnetic eyelashes. For some women, magnetic eyelashes are something that's almost too good to be true, and fun enough it is. In addition, many people feel that magnetic eyelashes are not as safe as lashes with glue, since they could fall out at any time.

The latest innovation that has occurred in magnetic eyelashes are those that only require a strip and use a magnetic eyeliner that contains iron oxides to keep them in place. If you plan to use your eyelashes every day, magnetic eyelashes end up being more cost-effective in the long run. The difference is that magnetic eyelash eyeliner contains iron oxides that attract magnets, an FDA-approved ingredient commonly used in cosmetics.
