We go to great lengths to make ourselves beautiful. But sometimes waxing, contouring and applying makeup in all the right places isn’t enough. Sometimes what we need is actual length…like the kind we get with false eyelashes!
Whether you want to make your own individual lashes look a bit fuller or want serious drama with 3D mink lashes, it can be expensive. A high-quality pair of fake eyelashes can cost upwards of $50, but if you’re working on a shoestring budget, there is somewhere you buy lashes for just a few dollars:
From strip lashes to magnetic lashes to individual eyelash extensions, here are the 9 best AliExpress lashes that won’t bust your beauty budget.
Who is AliExpress?
Fashion, accessories, beauty products, home goods, toys, electronics…
AliExpress pretty much sells it all! This massive online shopping destination is owned by Alibaba, one of the biggest eCommerce sites in the world.
What makes AliExpress different from other online shopping sites is that almost all of the manufacturers that sell on AliExpress are located in China, which allows them to sell their products at super low prices. AliExpress cuts out the middleman that is the retailer (such as Amazon) by offering products directly from their warehouses to consumers.
The end result?
Products that cost a fraction of the price you’ll pay elsewhere. New users can save even more money, as many products come with a coupon code if you’ve never shopped the site before.
Things You Need to Know Before Shopping at AliExpress
There are a few things you should know before you start shopping at AliExpress…
One thing to pay close attention to is that some products are sold in bulk. Be sure to read the details and know if you’re purchasing one individual item or one case of 100pcs! Each page will include those details, just make sure you know exactly what you’re buying before you click checkout.
It’s also worth noting that most AliExpress items ship directly from China, which means that it’s typical for a package to take three to four weeks to arrive. If you’re hoping to receive your lashes in time for a big party this weekend, you’re pretty much out of luck. You can definitely save money shopping here, but you’ll pay for it with patience!
One other thing to know is that the titles of AliExpress products tend to be super long (and sometimes a bit confusing). Be sure to scroll through the entire product page to gather as much information and clarity as you can before buying.
AliExpress is also loaded with helpful reviews, and some manufacturers include buyer questions and answers on specific products. The lashes that made this list have all received four stars or more and have been purchased thousands of times, so we’re only recommending those that have received the best reviews possible!

Not in the mood to mess with lash glue? Try a pair of magnetic eyelashes instead!
The magnetic lashes come in a set of three and include a magnetic liquid eyeliner as well as an applicator to hold and adhere the lash to your lid.
To apply these magnetic lashes, put the magnetic eyeliner on your lid, as you would your normal liquid liner. Wait for it to dry, and then attach the lashes to the eyeliner. Each lash is backed with tiny magnets that snap in place right on your lid. They’re easy to apply, easy to remove, and quite comfortable to wear.
These lashes receive a 4.8 rating with over 2,800 orders placed.
Unlike magnetic lashes that attach with magnetic eyeliner, these magnetic 3D mink eyelashes sandwich your natural lashes by including a top and bottom layer with tiny magnetics at the edge of each.
Here’s how they work:
Each lash consists of two mirror-image layers. One layer goes beneath your natural lashes, while the other layer goes above your natural lashes. When they’re both in place, the edges snap together, creating thick, full, gorgeous lashes!
For a few dollars more, you can upgrade to a set of five lashes that includes an applicator for easier attaching.
These lashes receive a 4.3 rating with nearly 13,000 orders placed.
Is It Safe to Wear False Eyelashes?
False eyelashes are safe to wear as long as you apply them properly and follow the care guidelines.
If you’re using glue-on lashes, be extra careful where you put that glue! If you opt for magnetic lashes with magnetic liner, be careful not to get that liner in your eye.
It takes a steady hand and a bit of practice to get the hang of applying falsies, but with the prices of lashes at AliExpress, you won’t feel as much pain in your wallet if, for some reason, they don’t work out.
