Raise your hand if you’ve ever been let down by the results of an expensive mascara. Now, raise your hand if you’ve tried falsies and epically failed at them. Are you raising both hand like I am? Even if you’re not, I’ve got some beauty news for you that you’re gonna want to know about. Fiber lash mascara is quickly becoming the popular new kid on the beauty block and the hype is real. I had the opportunity to try out Physicians Formula’s Eye Booster Lash Extension Kit and it is the bomb dot com. For those of you who are new to the fiber lash game, it’s a 2-part mascara that allows you to lengthen and thicken your lashes by brushing little fibers onto your coat of mascara. It provides the same effect as false lashes, but without danger of potentially gluing your eyelid shut. (insert thankful emoji)
The Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Extension Kit was really easy to use and the directions on the packaging were very straightforward. To put that into context, I used this mascara during my typical morning workday routine, and no extra time was needed. From the results shown below, I was definitely impressed with the difference! My lashes felt fuller and thicker than when I wear my usual mascara. The application was a little messy, but I was expecting that since the smaller tube is literally filled with loose fibers. Here are a few best practices for applying fiber mascara:
Mascara first: The mascara is the glue for the fibers so be sure to apply the mascara first. I also put on a second coat of mascara to seal the fibers. If you really wanna go crazy you can add two coats of fibers for more dramatic results!
Tap it: Before applying the fiber brush, be sure to tap it first to get as many excess fibers off as possible.
Lean in: Since the loose fibers will go everywhere make sure you’re leaning over the sink to keep your vanity area relatively clean.
Dust it off: After applying, you’ll most likely have loose fibers on your cheeks or around your eye area. Simply use a powder brush to dust off these extra fibers and be on your way!
