Honest Review – One Two Magnetic Lashes
So I heard about One Two Lash almost by accident. I was randomly lurking around the internet, looking at some of my favorite beauty blogs, and I happened to see a video that mentioned the mysterious product (magnetic false eyelashes? Say what?)
They received a rave review from Allure, who gave them a Best of Beauty Breakthrough award in 2016, and other various high profile bloggers and media outlets seemed to be fans of the product as well.
However, with the vast amount of praise peppered throughout their website, I figured that I should do my research because a) these things are on the expensive side as far as falsies go and b) I’m skeptical in general when things seem like they might be made of magic and unicorn glitter.
So I did some research. I read reviews and articles, I watched tutorials and the main thing I realized after all that was that I was still intrigued by the idea of magnetic false lashes – plus I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about for myself, so I took the plunge and ordered a pair.
Now, the first thing you’ll notice about One Two Lashes is the packaging. The box is definitely well designed, uses a soft touch finish and gold foil accents so it feels like a luxury product in the hand. The box contains the case of lashes and a cloth to lay down on the table or surface in front of where you are going to be applying the lashes, which trust me, will come in handy.
There’s instructions for application and removal of the lashes on either side of the box, but the process seems simple enough:
- Take the top lash (the one without the red dot) and apply it to your lash near the end of the lash line.
- Take the bottom lash, and without blinking, apply it to the top lash.
But in reality, it’s much harder than that, and it takes a few tries to get the application to feel natural and to look normal and I think the learning curve is probably different from person to person. For me, it took about five minutes to figure out what position to hold my hand in to make things easier for me, but in some of the videos I watched I saw some women get frustrated and give up after numerous tries.
So if you’ve read this far, you’re probably wondering what the verdict is – how did they look? Did I like them? Well, the answer is, yes, I did like them, and personally I thought they looked real (or as real as any other pair of falsies I’ve tried in the past year or so). I tried the “Original” pair, so I can’t vouch for how any of the other styles look, but the “Original” style worked for me.
Here’s how they looked:
Overall, I was pretty happy with my One Two Lash purchase. I know that I won’t wear these everyday, but I like the fact that I don’t have to mess with glue, or having to worry about things irritating my eyes because these are reusable – you can still wear mascara with them, but the company recommends just putting it on the inside part of your lashes.
