I will be a bridesmaid at an upcoming wedding and I was interested in finding a product to supercharge my eyelashes. This Lash Factory mascara arrived in time for me to test it out.
The black hard shell case is a nice touch – the two tubes of product are secured inside the case, each with its own holder. I also received a coloured and illustrate instruction manual.
To apply the fibres, the base coat of transplanting gel needs to be wet in order for the fibres to adhere properly. As such, it is recommended that you do one eye at a time.
For the first step, the instructions direct you to apply one coat of mascara first and let completely dry. I did this for one eye, and left the other eye alone to see how this product works by itself.
The next step is to apply transplanting gel. I did this and was not sure how much of the gel was getting onto my lashes. It is difficult to tell so I kept at it for a bit of an extended time just to make sure.
Next step is to apply the transplanting fibres. The manual gives recommendations to apply on the backside of your lashes and only to the top half of your lashes to prevent the fibres from getting into your eye and causing irritation. I was a bit concerned of the tiny fibres ending up in my eye, but thankfully they stayed put on the brush well and I did not notice and fibres falling off the brush during the application process. The tiny black hair-like fibres do seem strange, but they stuck to my lashes well. The fibres certainly add a very noticeable boost of volume, but appear a bit strange due to their “split end” appearance.
The last step of applying the transplanting gel helped to separate my lashes and smooth out the split end look of my lashes.
Once I was done, my lashes looked great! There was a bit of noticeable weight to them, but not as heavy as wearing fake lashes.
The lasting ability of the fibres is not as great as I would have hoped. After a few hours of wear, I did notice some of the fibres coming off and appearing around my eye area (but happily not into my eye). After all day of wear, there were even more fibres located around my eye area. Perhaps it would have helped to apply another coat of mascara as an additional top coat.
I had no problem removing this product from my eyes using my regular drugstore brand makeup remover solution.
I like the look of this product and feel that it does a really good job of volumizing my eyelashes. I am confident to wear this to the wedding, however I will do a diligent job of using a q-tip to remove any fallen fibres ever few hours.
I took a before photo of my lashes, and after photo. The left side of the “after” photo shows the product when used with a mascara basecoat. The right side shows the product when used alone with no extra mascara.
I received this product at a discounted price in return for my honest review.
If you found my review helpful, I would very much appreciate an upvote.
I tried I didn't like it at all I would never recommend to my friends and family
It was my first time ever using a 3D Fiber Mascara. I was shopping for Mascaras and just decided to try this one out of curiosity. I didn't know what to expect when using it, I am not a beautician and I am definitely not a model.
The first few times I used it I found the Fibers feathery making my lashes look clumpy. The more I use it the more control I have over it. The first time I used it I was going to give it 2 stars but i think I just need practice because it looks better every time I use it.
Cheap mascara, clear ripoff of younique 3D fibre lash mascara. This stuff clumps so bad & is such a pain to apply. Just get falsies.
