Heads Up: Magnetic False Lashes Are Coming to the Drugstore Next Month

I can choose the perfect nude lip shade in five seconds flat. I can color correct like it's my job, and I can convincingly change the shape of my eyebrows armed with a single pencil or pomade. These are beauty feats that I'm proud to have conquered, though there are still many others I'm working on. For example, I can never apply a smoky eye quite like my friends and co-workers can. I'm also not the best (read: totally inept) at styling my own hair. But the thing I struggle with the most is applying false eyelashes.

Even though I only wear false eyelashes for special occasions, the tacky lash glue and finicky positioning are enough to make me throw my hands up in frustration. I don't know why I get so annoyed, but I do. That's why I was so intrigued by the notion of magnetic lashes when I first heard about them earlier this year. These lashes come attached with minuscule magnets that clasp together, keeping lashes in place and intermingled with your natural set. They're genius.

And the good news keeps rolling in—Ardell, one of our favorite false lash brands, announced that it will be launching these magnetic falsies in drugstores come January. Keep scrolling to see how they work.
