One of my absolute pet peeves is the fact that mascara adverts use false lashes in their adverts. HOW DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL. As someone who works in advertising and loves make-up, this combination pisses me off to no end. For example:
Magnetic Lash consists of two tubes; one containing mascara (1), and the other containing little black fibres (2). You apply the mascara first, and then gently brush the fibres onto the top of your lashes. Let them dry for a minute, and then seal them with the mascara. I always make sure to apply quite a lot of mascara at the end, otherwise I find the fibres can fall into my eyes throughout the day. You can repeat this process as many times as you like until you’re happy with your lash length.
The Magnetic Lash mascara contains Vitamin E and luxury hyaluronic acid (an ingredient often found in anti-ageing serums and used as a moisturiser). It’s easy to remove, and doesn’t seem to smear or run throughout the day. It’s also NOT tested on animals, yay!!!
I found this mascara pretty amazing to be honest! I have short lashes and use a heated eyelash curler when I want them to actually look like normal eyelashes. I don’t bother with curling before I use Magnetic Lash, and my eyelashes look so much thicker and longer. Observe:
And that’s just one coat…I could go on and on! I’m very impressed and would definitely repurchase. At R300 it’s pricier than my usual go-to mascaras, but I think the result is worth it. Hopefully Clicks will keep it in-store for longer than 8 weeks!
