Fiber Lashes are extremely popular these days, so when I saw Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber at sephora.com, I decided to try it. The Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber is $19.00 at stores like sephora, macys, and tartecosmetics.
“What it is:
An easy-to-apply, faux lash system with sculpting fibers that enhance lash length and volume to create the appearance of false eyelashes.
What it does:
Get the wide-eyed look of false eyelashes at home without the traditional faux lashes. The lightweight, black sculpting fibers seamlessly build onto your own lashes to achieve a naturally voluminous eye look in three simple steps: First, prep lashes with the included Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara. Next, extend lashes with fibers, using a gentle patting motion, and apply fibers onto top of lashes, starting at the middle and working outwards toward the tip. Finally, set them in place with mascara, applying a final coat to lock in the fibers—leaving lashes with dramatic volume.
This set contains:
– 0.10 oz Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara
– 0.028 oz Nylon lash fibers
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
This product is vegan-friendly and dermatologist-tested.” (www.sephora.com)
I was really excited to try the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber. I sometimes wear fake lashes but I find them time consuming and difficult at times. I wanted to see if a fiber lash mascara can do a similar job. First of all, the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber is not a mascara. You first apply mascara, then the extending fiber, and then another coat of mascara to set the fibers. You can always add another coat of fiber lash to make your lashes more dramatic, but you always have to end with a coat of mascara. Overall, I didn’t think that the effect of the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber was dramatic. I think that a good mascara can achieve a similar effect, but the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber does add more volume and length. I am somewhat neutral regarding the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fiber. It is quite expensive for $19.00, without really adding the dramatic results that I wanted.
