Review: Tarte Mascara & Lash Fibers
It all started with an extension malfunction and a hopeless Asian in the United Kingdom. Lash Fibres was an impulsive toss into the basket along with my Ardell 120 Demi Black saviors. It wasn’t until university began and I desperately needed those quick fixes when snoozing the alarm over its third call became a habit. It grew on me and taking the positives from it, I splurged on the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers and Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara.
Introducing myself into the upmarket sector isn’t an everyday affair unless I find it to be worth it. Honestly, I rather bag in ten regular apples than one that is expurgated, shined and labeled with a luxury tag for the same price. If it does the job, it works for me.
Once you recover from that hefty bill, you will find that this faultless, miracle wand deserves the barrels of praise it’s been receiving from Nylon and Female.
How to use it?
Step 1: Apply the first coat of Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara by gliding the wand inwards and upwards starting from its roots.
Step 2: While your mascara is still wet, apply Tarte Lash Extending fibers using a gentle press and wiggle motion. Slowly extend the application upward the lashes while rotating the brush.
Note: Though the instructions will encourage you to comb the fibers in, personally I feel that using a light dab technique against the lashes will allow more fiber to be fixated on your lash instead of getting swept back with the wand.
Step 3: Allow the fiber to dry for 30 seconds before applying a second coat of mascara to set the entire look.
Step 4: For thicker and fuller eyelashes, repeat steps 2 and 3.
How it works?
The black fibers within the coats of mascara applied noticeably increases your lashes in volume. Subsequent layers provide dramatic lengthening effect as well.
How much does it cost?
Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara: S$32
Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers: S$32
