It’s a bit of an understatement to say that I’m always trying to find the newest, most unusual products. And I think I may have just about outdone myself with Magicstripes. Basically, if you suffer from heavy or droopy eyelids, you need to check these transparent silicon strips out!

Magicstripes come in two sizes – small and medium, and if you’ve not tried them out before, I would recommend grabbing both sizes, to make sure you find which size works best for you. In addition to working with eye size, the small strips are recommended for normal, sagging eyes, whilst medium strips are best for big eyes and drooping eyelids.

Despite looking quite complicated to use, the strips are super easy to get the hang of! Before applying, it’s best to prime your eyelids by removing any oils. To do this, I swipe the lids with a toner-soaked cotton pad, then I pat the area dry. Afterwards, you just peel off one of the strips and position it directly in the crease of the eye. The strips have adhesive which then sticks to the lid, and the magic happens!

What I find incredible, is how subtle Magicstripes are. They feel almost weightless whilst on, and they make you look so well rested and alert. Thankfully, droopy eyelids are too much of a problem for me, but some members of my family (who, of course shall remain nameless) have become absolutely addicted to using them!

    How would you apply makeup with them on or are they for bare eyes only?

      After you place them on your eyes and blink a bit so they adhere, I just patted powder eyeshadow on them 🙂
