I Wore Magnetic Lashes For A Night Out & This Is My Honest Opinion

I Tried It

We all love a good set of lashes, so when we had the chance to try out magnetic lashes, we were ecstatic!


Most women love the added volume and glamour of lashes. The beauty enhancement has become wildly popular in the last couple of years. Back in the day, they were created to lengthen lashes on Hollywood actresses. Now we use them for everyday use, which means there has to be versatility and efficiency to the application process.

My comfortability with makeup and beauty products is fairly new. I am a beginner in the makeup game, so I am definitely not a MUA and you won't find booking info on my Instagram, ha! Honestly, I didn't learn to apply eyeliner without assistance until about five years ago. I am so weird about things being near my eyes that I tried my best not to irritate them in any way. Any time I would get my makeup done professionally, I would dread the lash application if it included a glue adhesive because my eyes would water uncontrollably.

Now, I feel somewhat comfortable with applying foundation and other big girl makeup materials and that's thanks to some bomb YouTube beauty influencers. I say all of this to say, if I can successfully apply magnetic lashes, then we might have found the solution to lashes for EVERY girl.

I tried Love Lash, a collection created by Love Light Cosmetics. They are durable, vegan, and cruelty-free magnetic lashes designed for easy and convenient application.

The extensions are designed with the bottom lash slightly shorter than the top. They replicate the natural lash line and follow the natural curvature.

I decided to try out the set of "Zen" eyelashes for a Girl's Night In.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine.

Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
