It wasn’t until I dove into a black hole of beauty products on Amazon that I found out about fiber lash mascara. I discovered that women use this stuff instead of false eyelashes or eyelash extensions, and then I saw the before and after photos and decided I needed to try this stuff out for myself.
After perusing Amazon for way too long, I decided to purchase 3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Mia Adora. The mascara arrived a couple days later and I tried it immediately.
Before I get into my review, I’ll explain the “fiber” part of this mascara and how this stuff works. This is a three step mascara product. You use the magnifying gel first, apply the fibers and lastly apply the magnifying gel for a second time. The wand with fibers looks kind of like black cotton candy. The magnifying gel is essentially like a standard mascara you could purchase at a drugstore. The gel does seem a little creamier than other mascara I have used, and the wand is soft but substantial enough to get in between your lashes.
Overall, Mia Adria’s 3D Fiber Lash Mascara works really well. I was surprised by my results and how easy it was to use. It’s important to apply the natural fibers when the first coat of magnifying gel is still wet. The other thing that surprised me about this product was it’s staying power. The mascara lasted throughout a full workday without melting off/onto my face.
To me, with this product I feel like my eyelashes don’t really look natural so I don’t think I’ll be using it everyday. I tend to go for a pretty low maintenance, natural look, especially on work days. For $20 I think it’s definitely a great product to have on hand for a special occasion or date night. I’m no mathemetician, so I can’t be positive that this fiber mascara magnified my eyelashes by 300%. But, I think this stuff makes a noticeably bigger difference than regular mascara.
What do you think of my before and after photos? Have you ever tried anything like this? I’d love to hear if you’ve used fiber lashes before and what your experience has been with them.
