If you’ve tried eyelash growth serums, lash extensions and lengthening mascaras and still don’t have a lash-extending solution you love, consider magnetics. They’re less messy than lashes that require glue, and much more affordable than salon extensions. Here are three we like—which one will work for you?

Dainty falsies that feel as soft as your own.

Everyone’s lash preferences are different. Some of us want bold, black falsies that you can see from a mile away. Others prefer serious subtlety. For a natural effect, look for soft, wispy lashes that will blend into your own, like these. We especially like that this set comes with three different pairs so you can find your perfect look.

Multiple pairs—from subtle to super bold—so you can experiment!

The beauty of eyelashes that apply via magnetic eyeliner is that you already know how to put them on: Magnetic eyeliner glides on no differently than regular liquid liner—and the eyelashes quickly click onto it. But not all magnetic eyeliner is created equal. It’s best to look for one that’s waterproof and fade resistant, like the kind in this set. No streaks or smudges!

Comes with two tubes of liner and more pairs than most other sets.

If you plan to wear your lashes daily, you may find that you run out of magnetic liner fast. Look for a kit that comes with larger—or multiple—tubes of liner so you don’t have to re-buy so often. Pro tip: For wings or cat eyes, use a traditional liner to draw your design, then trace only the part that will come in contact with the lashes with the magnetic liner.

Stash this compact in your purse to take your look from day to night.

If you’re never sure when the mood will strike for a lash upgrade, grab a kit like this one to stash in your purse or beauty bag. It holds all your magnetic eyelash supplies in one cute case and includes an all important mirror.
