If at first you don't succeed, try try again!
I love having that sultry, sexy, and long lashes look, but if your anything like me, mastering the false lashes takes time and patience. It's like art and your lashes are the canvas! I was super excited when I received Kiss Magnetic Eyeliner and Lashes in my Summer staples VoxBox. I thought it was going to be easy and fast to apply, hence the magnetic aspect, but boy was I wrong. Like any application process, you need to learn the best method to achieve the best results and this was no different. I went through alot of trial and error, but eventually I found what worked best in my opinion. The box says "Line, Lash, Done." but for me that wasn't the case. The eyeliner is very runny, if I used too much it would run into my eye and then after it dried it started to flake off, if I used too little, the lashes wouldn't hold. The directions state that you can pair the magnetic eyeliner with your regular eyeliner so I used my regular eyeliner first, then I applied the magnetic eyeliner on top. again, being careful to use the right amount to hold the lashes. Be sure to allow the eyeliner to fully dry before applying the eyelashes. Make sure you have previously fitted the lashes to fit your eye. If the Lash line is too long, you can trim the excess lash in between the visible magnets to fit your Lash line appropriately. Once applied, my lashes looked beautiful and lasted all night long! I love that the lashes are reusable, just place them back on the original packaging tray and the magnets will hold them in place. The removal of the lashes is pretty straightforward, just wet a cotton swab with an oil based make-up remover and gently wipe the eyeliner off. I cannot stress enough to find what method works best for you. We all have our individual methods, just be patient and play around with the process but remember to have fun!
I really wanted to like these lashes...
I received these lashes from Kiss and Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion. I had high hopes for these lashes based on other reviews I had read, and the concept is fun so I really wanted to like them. They ended up being disappointing, but I'll start with what I did like about them.
-Pros: I like long and full lashes and these were perfect in my book. These lashes weren't so long and full that they looked like spiders, but they were more intense than just wearing mascara. I love that the container holds the lashes in place with magnets, so they are easy to store to reuse. The lashes seem pretty durable for reuse.
-Cons: The liner seems more watery than other liquid liners I've used, so it takes a while to dry and is harder to apply neatly. You need several coats for the lashes to really hold, and even with 3+ coats, the eyeliner wears off where it comes into contact with the magnets on the lashes. The inner corners of the lashes came off for me pretty quickly, and then are impossible to stick back on because the liner holding them in place has worn off. If you remove the lashes once they start falling off, you are left with awkward liner that is worn off completely where the magnets were. It's not a cute look. Even with using primer, setting powder, and setting spray, the liner smudged all over my eyelid after only a couple of hours. I will wear these from time to time since I have them, but probably only in situations where they'll be on for an hour or two. I won't purchase these moving forward, and I don't recommend them.
It was difficult to capture with photos how the lashes come off, so excuse these awkward close-ups.
Better than Tori Belle lashes
These lashes are so easy to apply! I recently received a pair of magnetic lashes from Tori Belle and the Kiss lashes are way better! You do have to apply 2 coats of liner, but these lashes are so light and the staying power is amazing!
Yes I would buy it again!
It's easy to apply,
Easiest lashes ever
These lashes are so easy and quick to apply, they stay on all day and feel much lighter then glue.
I'm not the best at applying liner nor lashes so this kit got messy real quick. However, I did test the strength of the liner with the lashes on my hand and they did not budge. I received this product complimentary of Influenster.
Need better packaging
Wasn't able to wear because the magnets didn't stay on lash, they stuck in to the packaging. Followed directions to slide off but 3 pieces of magnet remained on the plastic.
