Magnetic eyeliner and eyelashes are two increasingly trendy alternatives to traditional false lashes. They contain small magnets to help the products “stick” to your upper eyelids without the use of glue.
Relatively new compared to glue-on versions of lashes and traditional liquid or pencil liners, but while it’s true that magnetic lashes and eyeliner seem to pose few side effects, this doesn’t mean they are completely risk-free, especially if you use them incorrectly.
Here’s what you need to know about magnetic eyeliner and lashes, as well as how to use them safely. Talk to a doctor before using these products if you have any preexisting eye conditions.
Magnetic eyeliner and lashes ingredients
Magnetic eyelashes contain small magnets that are designed to stick together without the hassle of glue that’s traditionally used in other types of false lashes. ThinkShow magnetic eyelashes are made of synthetic fiber.
Magnetic eyeliners are designed to help magnetic lashes stay in place while also accentuating their look. These contain FDA-approved ingredients called iron oxides, iron oxides are mineral deposits and can cause staining of the skin.
However, it is in a variety of make up and skin care products (eye shadows and normal eyeliners) and is regulated by the FDA. Trace amounts of iron oxides are permitted by the FDA to be used as a color additive and allowed in the eye area.
Although rare, it’s possible for iron oxide to cause allergies. You may be sensitive to iron oxide if you have a history of eczema or contact dermatitis.
Consider doing a patch test of magnetic eyeliner on your arm a couple of days before trying it out on your eyes to make sure you’re not allergic. Place a small amount inside your elbow and wait for 24 to 48 hours. If you have a reaction, discontinue use.
Safety Tips for Using Magnetic Lashes
If you decide to go with magnetic lashes, keep the following things in mind:
- Don’t share magnetic lashes with other people.
- Keep the box for your lashes clean and closed.
- Don’t store your magnetic lashes in very hot places.
- If your eyes become irritated, stop using the lashes.
- Don’t use them if you have an infection or the skin around your eye is irritated. Throw away any lashes that you used at about the time you got the infection or irritation.
- Wash your hands before touching your eyelids.
- Be careful not to touch or scratch your eyeball.
- Don’t try to put your lashes on in a moving vehicle. Your hands may slip. That could cause injury or infection.
- If you’re having an MRI, check with your doctor about whether it’s safe to wear your eyelashes that day.
Be sure to check with your doctor if you have any sort of bad reaction to an eyelash-enhancing product, whether extensions, magnetic eyelashes, or eye drops.
Overall, magnetic eyelashes and eyeliners are considered safe for most people, especially when compared to false lashes that require glue. Magnetic versions also tend to be easier to use, so you may find yourself saving time in your beauty routine.
There is absolutely no issue with having small magnets applied to the eyelid, and it is actually a lot more comfortable than lash glue, especially if you’re using ThinkShow Lashes.
