I had been getting lash extensions for about 2 and 1/2 years, and out of nowhere, I started developing an allergy to the adhesive. I knew I had to stop getting them done and seriously started to get depressed. As a professional woman, I was horrified to think that my peers and colleagues would see such a noticeable difference in my once long beautiful lashes to my short stubby ones.
I know this sounds vain, but please know I am the farthest from it. Lash extensions cut my getting ready time in half and also saved me from any embarrassing mascara smudges during the day. I didn’t know how I would function without them. I started searching the internet for some kind of alternative to extensions, there just HAD to be something!
That’s when I read about One Two’s magnetic lashes. I searched for reviews and YouTube videos on the product to have a better idea of how they worked. Despite the mediocre reviews, there were a couple of good ones and I thought I could get the hang of it with some practice. I placed my order and was happy with how quickly they came. I started sweating each day that went by so that my lashes were looking more and more sparse (I was letting the extensions grow out rather than remove them).
When the lashes came, I was pleasantly surprised at how EASY they were to put on! It really only took me a couple of tries. A helpful tip from a YouTube video said to put the top lash on, and then open your eye really wide so the lash naturally falls closer to the lash line, then take the bottom lash and drag it up from the rear line to get it as close to the lash line as possible. While they were snapped in place, I tried shaping them to my eye a bit.
I ordered both the natural and bold and both looked really pretty on. I will say that I really like how the strip on the bold lashes is a lot more pliable than on the natural ones. I do understand that is probably because the naturals strip is clear like a fishing line, while the bold is able to use a different material being black and a little thicker. When I put them on, I asked my husband for his honest opinion because he was skeptical and wanted to save me from insane embarrassment, he was shocked and said: “they look great like you got extensions!”
Needless to say, I tested them out galavanting around town, then tested them in the wind at the beach, then at a meeting with a coworker. They stayed put and looked great! I have been wearing them every day since (about two weeks) and they are in great shape still.
I think my only real complaint might be how they aren’t tapered enough for not covering the entire lash. Although the extensions I have left help to blend One Two lashes, I know as they get more sparse there will be quite the drop off from the One Two lashes to my natural ones. I am thinking about ordering the One Two small ones to see if I can wear those to fill more along with the regular ones.
Bottom line: I can’t thank them enough for this amazing product. Totally amazing idea with a woman behind it!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
