• Is it safe to use magnetic eyeliner with magnetic eyelashes?


    Question:

    Is it safe to use magnetic eyeliner (which contains iron oxide) with magnetic eyelashes?


    Answer:

    Magnetic eyeliner is often used to attach magnetic eye lashes. Similar to glue on false eyelashes, magnetic eyeliner/eyelashes can be used safely when applied carefully and as instructed. They may, of course, cause eye irritation and eyelid irritation, and should not be used in an MRI scanner.

    Compressive magnetic lashes may cause breakage of normal eyelashes. If they cause pain, irritation or other concerning symptoms, stop using them and see your ophthalmologist.
