Have you ever dreamt of long lashes that stay curled to perfection and need one coat of mascara to oomph them up, or are you normal? Long, dark, feathery, and full lashes are every woman’s dream. False lashes made that dream into a reality. But let’s be real, false lashes take time and patience to put on correctly. Working women don’t have that kind of time. They need everything to be quick, easy, and effortless to get up and ready for work. This problem leads to a rise in the popularity of “lash extensions.” While they may last 4-6 weeks and provide the perfect curl, but are they worth it? This article discusses the drawbacks of lash extensions and the best alternative to them in the market: “magnetic eyelashes.” Let’s dive in.
Are Lash Extensions Worth The Hype?
While you may be able to achieve your dream of rolling out of bed with Adele like lashes, lash extension application is not easy. Unlike falsies that can just be glued on to your lashes, putting on lash extensions is a far more meticulous process. It takes up to 3 hours or more and requires professional help. While you may have full control over deciding the length, curl, and fluff, the technician will do the rest. Below are the reasons why investing in this trend is not beneficial.
Allergic Reaction To GlueEven though the semi-permanent glue is specially formulated, it can and has caused an allergic reaction in users. Despite different adhesives being catering to sensitivity, there is no guarantee. Furthermore, the glue is likely to irritate and stub the growth of your natural lashes.
Expensive to apply and require maintenanceEyelash extensions are of three types: synthetic, mink, and silk. Mink is the most expensive. Application of lash extensions can cost up to 80-180 AUD. One hundred sixty of these lashes are applied individually to our natural lashes by the technician. It is the reason why they require a touch-up, once your natural lash sheds, so do the extension glued to it! Maintenance is necessary to keep them looking full and dark. Furthermore, they require proper daily cleaning and fluffing to make them last longer.
Time-Consuming And Require “Refills”Refills are needed every 2-4 weeks on average. This time frame is likely to vary according to the individual as it is dependent on our lash growth cycle. Refills take up to 1-2 hours, and in general, the whole procedure takes at least three and a half hours, give or take.
Going To An Unlicensed Technician Can Cause You Permanent HarmUse of unsanitized or improperly cleaned tools can lead to infections like pink eye. It can also cause infections on the eyelid or cornea. Likewise, improper glue application can cause injuries such as eye irritation, itching, or bloodshot eyes. It may lead to a temporary or, in some cases, a permanent loss of eyelashes. So does that mean you can’t achieve your dream of Kim Kardashian looking lashes? No, it doesn’t. The answer to that is “magnetic eyelashes.”
What Are Magnetic Lashes?
The last five years have seen a colossal trend in the use of magnetic eyelashes the world over. They’ve been popping up in drugstores and departments alike.

Most optometrists gave it the green light, going as far as saying that is the safest method to achieve a fuller lash dream than extensions or false lashes combined. It is secure as the electromagnetic frequency emitted from these lashes is very low.
The magnetic lash technology has seen its high because of its easy application. Its use of a “single strip.” And that too applied with the aid of a magnetic liner has attracted people regardless of their makeup skills.
