Magnetic Eyelashes Reviewed

After mentioning my recent purchases here on Monday, readers asked me to review the items I bought, that is, the Verfanny Magnetic Eyelashes and Philips Norelco Bodygroomer.

Verfanny Magnetic Eyelashes

Before I review the magnetic eyelashes, here are brief descriptions of how they work and how to apply them.
How Magnetic Eyelashes Work: For each eye, there are two strips of lashes, a strip that goes underneath the top eyelash and a strip that goes on top of the top eyelashes. Both strips have small magnets to mate the top and bottom lashes together.
How to Apply Magnetic Eyelashes: 
Step 1: Open your eye and place the bottom lash underneath your natural top lash. 
Step 2: Push the bottom lash into place, as close to the lash line as possible, and close your eye shut. 
Step 3: Place the upper lash on top of your natural lash, and it will mate with the bottom lash.
Maybe I was over-anxious, but the first time I opened the box containing the lashes, I broke the hinges of the box. (Not an auspicious beginning!) So now I use a rubber band to hold the box's cover in place.

There were no instructions accompanying the lashes, so I looked online. Some instructions said to put the top lash into place first, while others (like the instructions above) said to put the bottom lash into place first.

I tried putting the top lash into position first and had no success using that method. There is nothing holding the top lash in place except gravity, so it would move or fall off while I retrieved the bottom lash and attempted to mate it with the top lash.

Putting the bottom lash in place first worked much better and after three or four attempts, I got the hang of it and was able to apply the lashes successfully.

The lashes are long and I had to trim about an eighth of an inch off each lash to match my natural eyelash length.

Some readers wondered if the lashes will work if you have short natural lashes. In my opinion, I don't think the length of your natural eyelashes will make a difference. The magnets are on the lash line, so the lashes mate there, not beyond. So unless you have no natural lashes at all, I think the magnetic lashes will work with any length of natural lashes.

By the way, the lashes looked fabulous! They make a big difference in the way my eyes appear; there is no way I could achieve their length and fullness with mascara.

Philips Norelco Bodygroomer

To tell you the truth, I have not used the Bodygroomer long enough to write an honest review, but I can give you my first impressions.

I have owned Philips and Norelco electric razors in the past and the Bodygroomer is similar to them. It seems to be a well-constructed quality product that should last for years just like the electric razors.

To make sure the Bodgroomer was not DOA, I did charge its batteries and used it briefly to shave my wrists. So far, so good. After I use it more fully (especially to remove my back hair),  I will write a full review.

  1. Stana,
    Thanks for the review of the magnetic eyelashes. I will try them and try not to break the hinges in my exuberance.

  2. I'll also have try them. Thanks for the review! Hugs, Tanit

  3. Knew only of the glue-on ones so will try the magnets. Just ordered some.

  4. I tried the magnetic lashes but as someone commented when there's not a lot of lash to begin with they didn't work. I tried and tried w/o success to make them work but the lashes kept falling off and whatever I'd hope for never worked out. I got what I paid for. Jan

  5. Stana,
    Yes. Twas me who made that comment.....and unfortunately I already ordered them from Amazon. But wait; maybe I can glue them on.

  6. I ordered a pair off amazon about a month ago. Took some practice, but was finally able to get them on. I'm still on the fence whether I like them or not. I got the ones where it's one piece on bottom and 3 pieces on top (so it tends to bend with the curve of the eyelid better). I would say it's nice to not deal with adhesive, but it doesn't feel secure but maybe good enough for wearing around the house.
