All About Lashify Magnetic Lashes: A Comprehensive Guide


Magnetic lashes have become a popular alternative to traditional false eyelashes, offering a glue-free option for enhancing your natural lashes. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the world of magnetic lashes, focusing on Lashify’s offerings, and answer some frequently asked questions.

What Are Magnetic Lashes?

Magnetic lashes were first created in 2014 as an alternative to strip falsies that were applied with potentially toxic glue containing formaldehyde and cyanoacrylates. The first magnetic lashes worked by placing double bands on your lash line. One band with a magnetic strip was placed underneath your lashes, and the other band (with the lash extensions on them) was placed over your lashes. The magnets in the bands clamped together to hold the extensions in place.

How Have Magnetic Lashes Evolved?

The early prototypes of magnetic lashes had some issues. They were notorious for falling off or damaging the natural lash upon removal. They were also heavy due to the dual magnetic bands and added layers of material needed to keep the lashes in place. Today, most magnetic lashes work by either the sandwich method (similar to the original but updated) or by using a magnetic liner.

How Do Magnetic Lashes Work?

Magnetic lashes come in two formats: Sandwich Eyelash Extensions and Magnetic Eyeliner Lashes.

Sandwich Eyelash Extensions

These magnetic lashes work similarly to how the original magnetic lashes did but with a few upgrades. Instead of being made up of two lash bands that sandwich your natural lashes in between, updated versions are smaller. These are essentially cluster lashes that sit on the top lash with a matching band below.

Magnetic Eyeliner Lashes

This type of magnetic lash has an eyeliner that contains iron oxides. The eyeliner is applied to the lid like any standard eyeliner would and allowed to dry completely. The lash band containing the lash extensions has three to five tiny magnets attached to the upper lash along the line where the eyeliner is applied.

Do Magnetic Lashes Work?

Magnetic lashes do work and can be a good solution for people who are allergic to certain types of lash glue or who find strip lashes difficult to use. However, most of the magnetic lash strips are made in a one-size-fits-all format.

How to Apply Magnetic Lashes?

Here are the steps to apply magnetic lashes:

  1. Apply Lash & Go Eyeliner from the inner to the outer corner of the lash line. Apply 2 layers of liner for extra hold.
  2. Once the eyeliner has dried, immediately apply Magnetic Lashes onto the Lash & Go Eyeliner.
  3. Repeat steps on the other eye.


Magnetic lashes offer a unique and innovative way to enhance your natural lashes. They’re a great option for those who struggle with traditional false lashes or have allergies to certain types of lash glue. However, as with any beauty product, it’s important to use them correctly to ensure the best results and to maintain the health of your natural lashes.


Q: Are magnetic lashes safe? A: Yes, magnetic lashes are generally safe. Iron oxides, which make the eyeliner magnetic, are a common ingredient in sunscreen and other skincare formulas.

Q: How do you remove magnetic lashes? A: You can literally just peel them off. Start at the outer corner and peel toward the inner corner. You can then remove the eyeliner with any oil-based makeup remover.

Q: Are magnetic lashes a good alternative to lash extensions? A: Magnetic lashes can be a good alternative for those who find traditional lash extensions too cumbersome or expensive
