We still get a lot of questions about how exactly magnetic eyeliners works. We see eyebrows raised because some think it’s too good to be true, that magnetic lashes are unnecessary and some think it causes damage to the eyes. So, we are here to talk about the magnetic eyelash myths and answer everybody’s questions, because really, what’s not to love about Youthphoria’s magnetic lashes?
Magnetic lashes cause damage to the natural lashes.
MYTH! Youthphoria’s magnetic lashes are applied to your eyelids where the magnetic eyeliner is present and not to your eyelashes, therefore, it won’t cause any harm or damage to your eyelashes. Unlike salon eyelash extensions and clip-on magnetic lashes, Youthphoria’s lashes do not interact with the natural lashes and will dot cause any damage. Phew!
We know that the word magnetic sounds really intimidating, but if you take a look at how it works, the science of it and how long the ingredients have been safely used in the cosmetic industry, you’ll realise how Youthphoria Magnetic lashes are safe.
Iron oxide is the active ingredient that allows the magnetic eyelashes to be attracted to the magnetic eyeliner. Iron oxide is commonly found in products such as lipstick, foundation eyeliner, mascara as well as being used in the cosmetic tattoo industry too. If you look carefully at your ingredient list on your lipstick and makeup at home, you’ll start to realise you’ve already been using this for many years.
In magnetic eyeliners, there is a higher concentration of iron oxide which allows the magnetic false lashes to attach securely.
Furthermore, Youthphoria’s magnetic eyeliners are hypoallergenic and one of the cleanest ingredients there is in the market.

Magnetic eyelashes need mascara to work.
MYTH! We do not recommend mascaras to be used with the magnetic eyelashes, as Youthphoria magnetic lashes have their own curl and do not need any mascara to show its curl and volume. If you find you’re needing mascara, this means you’re better off going with a lash with more volume.
Mascara applied to Youthphoria’s magnetic lashes can cause clumpiness and damage them.
You can use mascara to your natural lashes as it helps to blend your natural lashes into the magnetic lashes seamlessly.
Magnetic eyelashes look fake.

Youthphoria magnetic lashes specialises in realistic looking with fine and tapered lash fibre ends and we have lots of modest and short styles for those who are looking for a supernatural lash extension look. We do have a lot of styles that are suitable as lash replacements particularly for those with alopecia, undergoing chemotherapy or have trichotillomania.
Some brands only sell super long, megavolume and thick fibres and shiny looking false lashes. This is what makes lashes look artificial.
