Ardell Magnetic Lashes

I’ve been an Ardell lash user since my dance competition days in middle school. Since then I think I’ve used every shape and style of their lashes that I could get my hands on. They make a quality product that I return to the store to purchase time and time again.

So of course I was SUPER excited when I heard that Ardell was coming out with new magnetic strip lashes. The glamour without the glue? I’m in! πŸ™‚

I pretty much stalked my local Sally’s Beauty Supply and Ulta for a couple weeks. Finally I got my hand on a few pairs.

Upon opening the package, one of the first things I noticed was how lightweight they were, which is a great thing because you’ve now got double the lashes.

Okay so I didn’t quite get how to put them on initially. The video clips make it look super easy. I can tell you it does take some practice, but once you’ve got it down, I think you will like these as much as I do. One piece of advise I can give is to check out Ardell’s IG @ardellbeauty. There you can see videos with some troubleshooting tips such as cutting the lashes into smaller magnetic pieces to make application easier.

So now that you are motivated to give these a try, here’s the where and the how much.

Available at the following stores:

  • Ulta
  • Sally’s Beauty
  • Target
  • CVS
  • Rite-Aid
  • Walmart
  • Walgreens

Available in three styles:

  • Double Wispies
  • Accent Lashes
  • Double 110

Cost: $12-$14 depending on where you purchase.

Here you can see a before and after. The top is without the magnetic lashes, and bottom is with the magnetic double wispies.

Thanks for reading!

Pros and Cons of Eyelash Extensions

Pros:

  • Cuts way down on getting ready time.
  • Pretty much always look wide awake and refreshed.
  • No pesky eyelash glue mishaps (I have them quite often).

Neutral:

  • Washing your face much differently.
  • Sleeping more carefully, so not to squish your new lashes into the pillow.

Cons:

  • Unable to use liquid eyeliner.
  • Slightly pricier than faux lashes (but not much – range from $25-$60 for approx. 2-3 weeks).
  • Commitment to same eyelash design for a two week period (for those of you who like to change it up).

Overall, I would highly recommend trying them out for yourselves. I will definitely be getting them again.

DIY Firework Lashes

Materials:

  • Artificial lashes of your choice (I used Dodo Lashes, style D115).
  • Cosmetic grade glitter.
  • Glitter adhesive (I used Sprinkles Glue from Beauty Bakerie).

Process:

  • While leaving your lashes in their tray, brush a third (or however much you are wanting for your first glitter) with glitter adhesive.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the lash.
  • After the tops have dried fully, gently remove them from their tray, and repeat the process with the bottom side of the lashes.
  • Once both sides have dried, you are ready to apply.

    DIY False Eyelash Cleaning


    The bane of my existence… cleaning my eyelashes! But I have discovered a new method that makes this whole process less tedious.

    What you’ll need:

    • Your used false lashes 
    • Rubbing alcohol (I use 70%)
    • A small dish or bowl 
    • Original eyelash tray that your lashes came in

    The process:

    • First place your lashes into a small bowl/dish.
    • Next, pour rubbing alcohol into the bowl/dish until your lashes are completely submerged.
    • Leave them soaking for a few moments.
    • Next, gently remove mascara and glue with your fingers.
    • Once clean, place the eyelashes back in their original tray to maintain their shape.
    • That’s it!

    Happy cleaning!! πŸ™‚
