Makeup Ambush Results In 3-D Mascara Review

In last week’s post, Makeup Ambush In The Parking Lot, I promised a review of Makeover Essentials 3D Mascara Duo. Before I share my results, what is 3D mascara?

Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, 3D fiber lash mascara is a multi-step process. The steps include fibers and gel in addition to optional regular mascara.

One eye at a time alternate products like so:

  1. Begin with a coat of regular mascara (this step is optional)
  2. Apply a coat of gel
  3. Next, apply the fibers to the lashes before the gel dries
  4. Finally, add 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, I wasn’t expecting fiber lashes in the kit I ordered and was very disappointed with them.

This go-round was a better experience because I understood the process and I liked the outcome. In comparison with false eyelashes, 3D fiber mascara was much easier for me to handle. This particular brand was nice because of the contrasting color of the gel (white) and fiber (black) wands. On a side note, 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



  1. I hadn’t thought about the crying. Rarely wear mascara because of the way it smudges in the heat or if I weep. I recently discovered a smudge proof one.

  2. I almost can’t get past the weight thing because surely you’d have to feel them and what happens when you cry? When I want a good cry I don’t want to worry about losing my magnetic eyelashes😂 But, if I can find them at a reasonable cost I’ll give them a go just to try I’m skeptical.

  3. I know what you mean about lining them up. And what about weight? Surely even though they are thin, they’d be bulkier than the stick on ones? I think I like your idea better.

  4. Hi Robyn, I saw those too. Even though the magnets look extremely thin I’m not sure I could work with them as it would be a test of my patience. 😅My greatest problem with falsies is lining them up right. But the idea of not having to use glue is a positive.
