Magnetic Eyelashes Q&A With J. Renée
As a blind woman who loves to wear makeup, there are few things more challenging than applying false eyelashes. When I heard about magnetic eyelashes I wondered how they compared with other types of false lashes. Recently I caught up with J. Renée, 1st #AlbinoBeauty Influencer, to ask her a few burning questions on magnetic eyelashes.
Abby: In comparison with the glue-on lashes are the magnetic ones easier to handle?
J. Renée: Yes, initially I thought so. There are some pros and cons.
Abby: What are a few difficulties you had in trying them for the first time?
J. Renée: Well, I’ve never really attempted to apply any lashes on myself before so it was all new to me. I have applied them on models which I think isn’t as difficult. The magnets were difficult to align on my own eyes at first.
Abby: About how long did it take you to become comfortable applying the magnetic lashes?
J. Renée: I tried them once and took about 20 minutes. I think with practice, I could get them on easily.
Abby: Can you feel them once they are in place? Are they weighty?
J. Renée: I could not feel them. They feel pretty lightweight.
Abby: What is the cost comparison?
J. Renée: These cost about twice as much as a regular pair of glue lashes.
Abby: You mentioned press-on lashes will be coming out soon? Do you know when or where they will be available?
J. Renée: I heard that they were new but when I looked into it more, they’ve been available for a few years. I had never tried them before so I’m going to find them to try.
Abby: J. Renée thank for sharing your thoughts with us on magnetic eyelashes. You’ll have to follow-up with us on the press-on ones.
