But, while we could talk for days about our magnetic lash styles and how easy they are to apply, we want to answer your biggest question: Is magnetic eyeliner safe to use around your eyes? Find out what we have to say about the ingredients, safety standards, and more, below. 



What are the MoxieLash eyeliner ingredients? 

Is magnetic eyeliner safe for your eyes, contact, and will it irritate your skin? Find out with this easy questions answer. 

Like everything we do, we are intentional with the ingredients we put in our magnetic eyeliner. Both our liquid, gel, and colored liner ingredients check out on the EWG site with safety ratings of under two. Our top two ingredients in the liquid magnetic eyeliner are castor and olive oil; both help condition your lashes and skin. However, what allows the liner to magnetize to the lashes is the small amount of iron oxide included in our unique formula. 


Iron oxide is a naturally occurring mineral known to be safe and even non-toxic on the skin's surface. It's in many other makeup ingredients like eyeshadow, mineral makeup, lipsticks, blushes, and more. It's resistant to moisture, so it doesn't bleed, and it's perfect for attracting to magnetic lashes. 


According to, "The levels of heavy metals in Iron Oxides are regulated by the FDA, and the small amounts that may eventually be in cosmetic or personal care products do not pose a risk to human health."

  3. Start at the inside corner of your lash liner first, then slowly and gently glide along until you get to the outside corner.

What if magnetic eyeliner gets in your eyes?


While MoxieLash Magnetic Eyeliner is easy to apply, it's still a liquid or gel liner. There is always a chance of getting anything you put around the eye area in your eyes. This can happen to anyone! If you happen to get any magnetic eyeliner inside of your eyes, splash them with water until it's gone. If you have any irritation that causes concern, contact your doctor. 


Magnetic eyeliner safety vs. glue on lash adhesive


Glue on lashes used to be the only way to get seriously glam eyes. Thankfully, though, we have evolved since then with more options. Lash glue has been noted to be extremely hard to apply and irritating to eyes and eyelids due to the formula. Contact dermatitis has been a real issue with glue on lash adhesive, especially for lash extensions. 


Now, with magnetic eyeliner—we've noticed consumers not only appreciate the ease of use but the intentional ingredients as well. It's exciting to have another way to get the look of lash extensions without the possibility of a chemical burn reaction or allergy to glue or lash adhesive.
