What is Clear Magnetic Eyeliner
Clear Magnetic eyeliner and eyelashes are two increasingly trendy alternatives to traditional false lashes. They contain small magnets to help the products “stick” to your upper eyelids without the use of glue.
Relatively new compared to glue-on versions of lashes and traditional liquid or pencil liners, magnetic eye cosmetics are still deemed safe by the companies that market such products.
But while it’s true that magnetic lashes and eyeliner seem to pose few side effects, this doesn’t mean they are completely risk-free, especially if you use them incorrectly.
Here’s what you need to know about magnetic eyeliner and lashes, as well as how to use them safely. Talk to a doctor before using these products if you have any preexisting eye conditions.
Is Clear magnetic eyeliner safe for your eyes and face?
Clear Magnetic eyeliner is designed to complement magnetic eyelashes by helping them stay in place. These liners come in a liquid form that’s considered generally safe overall.
The key is to make sure, as with traditional liner, that you replace the product every 3 months to prevent bacteria growth in the bottle.
Potential side effects
Clear Magnetic eyeliner is marketed as safe, but there’s still a risk for side effects. It’s important to apply the liner at the lash line so the product doesn’t get in your eye or block the oil glands in your eyelid.
Don’t use it while in a moving vehicle so that you don’t accidentally poke your eye.
While not well-documented in clinical studies, it’s also possible to develop an allergic reaction to any cosmetics, or to develop an infection if you touch your eyes with unclean hands during the application or removal process. Discontinue using if you develop irritation or a rash.
