I’ve been using fibers along with mascara for awhile now. I love the bulk and length it adds to my lashes, but the commitment to applying them is not for the faint of heart! I’ve tried several different kinds of fibers, and the three I’ll touch on are Tarte’s Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers, Cherry Blooms, and Younique Moonstruck 3D Lashes.
The fibers I used the longest, and had the easiest time with, are Tarte’s Best in Faux. My main gripe with the other two sets (Cherry Blooms and Younique) was the gel mascara that went on to “seal” the fibers. I hated that stuff! The fibers, though, from all three kits are pretty darn good.
I found that the Cherry Blooms lean toward the shorter end of the spectrum in terms of length, but it was still rather easy to slowly add length layer by layer. Tarte’s fibers were the cleanest of the bunch for me, and Younique’s fibers were the longest and probably required the most “fine tuning” after application. So, each product has it’s ups and downs, but I found that they all added bulk and length to my lashes in one way or another.
I no longer even attempt to use the gel mascara that comes in the Cherry Blooms or Younique kits, instead I use my favorite mascara with the fibers.
Because I’ve gotten a few questions about it, I filmed a very short and rather boring tutorial to show you the process that I follow with the fibers. To some it will seem tedious and pointless, but I hope this helps if you are curious about the whole fiber lash phenomenon.
