Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Kit
I have recently stumbled across the newest innovation in lash technology… these little tiny phenomenon known as, Lash Extension Fibers! Lash fibers are lightweight, sculpting fibers that build upon your own lashes to create a naturally voluminous lash look.
Makeup companies such as Younique, Too Faced, Tarte, and Make-up Forever have jumped on the lash fiber bandwagon, coming out with their own “brush on lash extensions”. The least of which cost $20 minimally, but recently I’ve stumbled across my beauty steal of the moment, Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Kit ($11.99) and it actually works!
Guaranteed longer, thicker, fuller lashes in minutes! The mascara/fiber duo is buildable and has a flawless after effect. The above photo displays three coats of mascara and two of the lash fibers. FOREWARNING: prepare yourself for tons of open eye contact and an outpour of lash compliments!
Here’s how to use it:
- Prep: Sweep lash-boosting mascara on to upper lashes to prep for fibers & layer on
lash boosting ingredients.
- Extend: Brush-on extensions to upper lashes while mascara is still wet to instantly build lashes.
- Set: Reapply lash-boosting mascara to seal and set extensions. Repeat two and three for life changing lashes!
There are a lot of mixed of reviews on this product, but personally it works great for me! I am a contact wearer, so I was initially terrified that the lash fibers would migrate from the lash wand to my eyeball instead of my lashes. I have tried applying the mascara both before/after putting in my contacts, and while I was applying the lash fibers it felt like there were fibers in my eye (in a non irritating way), but I think they may have been my paranoia; since I have applied this mascara for about a month now, and fibers have yet to make their way into my eyes. The mascara/fiber duo is kind of dry (not in a bad way), most mascara leave a wet tinge and feeling to lashes and their look, but this feels more like lash extensions, in the way that they feel dry and “naked”. Originally I blinked a lot because it felt so unnatural, but with frequency of wear it begins to feel natural. I love the lash look and feel now! I know some people said the fibers fall everywhere and that they make a mess, but all you have to do is dust them off with a brush or tissue. Honestly, I only experienced this when I first applied the duo and every time afterwards there hasn’t been any fallout.
