Have you ever desired longer fuller lashes yet tremble at the thought of applying false eyelashes? If so, you might want to give 3D Mascara a try but first things first, I want to recognize the lucky winner of the Facebook GiveAway Contest’s Book Of Color II Makeup kit.
Congratulations Ashley B!!!
Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, 3D fiber lash mascara is a multi-step process requiring fibers, and gel in addition to optional regular mascara. Doing one eye at a time alternate products like so:
- Begin with a coat of regular mascara (this step is optional)
- Apply a coat of gel
- Apply the fibers to the lashes before the gel dries
- Apply another coat of gel to set the fibers
Prior to my recent experience with 3D fiber lash mascara, I tried it several years ago and wasn’t impressed. Not only was my first impression underwhelming I felt the process of application was messy. To be fair though I wasn’t expecting fiber lashes to be included in the kit I ordered and was very disappointed with them.
This go round was a better experience because I had a better understanding of the process and felt the outcome was good. In today’s collage (clockwise from the top left) we see our model in #1 with her natural short, sparse lashes, #2 one coat of mascara, #3 and #4 are the finished look after the application of gel and fibers.
In comparison with false eyelashes, 3D fiber mascara was much easier for me to handle and this particular brand was nice because of the contrasting color of the gel (white) and fiber (black) wands although personally, I wouldn’t use the product every day because of the cost and steps involved. However, for special occasions, I will be going for a more glamorous long, lush, lash, look.
It should be noted I am not being compensated for this review as it’s only my personal assessment mainly on the process not so much the brand. What is your experience with falsies or fiber mascara? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Have a nice weekend!! ~Abby
