But I would love someone to review them!
My sister and niece have ordered these. When they receive and start using them, I will ask them to comment on 1. if they liked, 2. were they heavy and 3. are they worth using.

Perfect! Thank you!

You see so many weird things advertised on Facebook....I am super skeptical in my old age. lol

Like that iron that makes perfect beachy waves without any skill at all required... I want one of them but I know that it would never work that easily as the ad shows.

Unfortunately, as per my sister, they got played. She has never received her order and now realizes that both her and her daughter were scammed. So won't be able to provide any info about magnetic lashes.

I ordered them. Took a few months to arrive. They are next to impossible to put on and looked ridiculous once I finally got them on. There are more expensive ones than the ones advetised on FB. They look much better but I can't imagine they would be any easier to apply. Maggie, I felt the same about the eyelash extensions and couldn't wait for them to fall out.

it's too funny I logged in today and saw this had been bumped up- I was coming to report on these myself! A girlfriend of mine and I were shopping last week and she bought a set of these at one of those 'as seen on TV' stores in the mall. She wanted to split the price with me ($50-ish) and I was like, no way, YOU be the guinea pig. Anyway, I texted her last night to see how they worked out and she said they sucked too. She said "at first they seemed ok but then the magnets failed right away and they were useless".

and by the way....Hi- where the heck have you been!? Nice to see you!

I've never been a fan of cleansing conditioners because they weighed my hair down. I picked up a sample of this at the drug store, and then went back to get a bottle. Cheap, similar to Wen but not as thick. This does not fade my color and is perfect for winter. I can air dry or blow dry and it's still shiny with lots of body. I love it.

I was just watching this YouTube Video with this poor woman trying out the magnetic lashes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNyrvZuedBk

She give a good tip...don't use magnetic tweezers to apply.

It's fun to get all dolled up with lashes sometimes, but for now, I'll just stick to my glue.
