Throughout history, women have always coveted longer, fuller lashes. Heck, it's one of the reasons we're all on the hunt for that holy grail mascara. Over the years, mascaras have gotten better at helping women fake incredible lashes and the fiber mascara trend is one of them.
I had the opportunity to test out cruelty free cosmetic brand, Physicians Formula, newest innovation - Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit. The kit includes a mascara with a slightly curved brush and a separate bottle of fibers with a wand to apply them.
There are 3 steps involved, with an additional 2 steps that are completely optional.
Step 1 (optional): Curl your lashes.
Step 2 Apply Lash Boosting Mascara to prep for fibers. You'll want to apply about 3-4 coats. Don't let them dry in between coats.
Step 3 With the Lash Extension wand, brush on fibers while your mascara is still wet. Fibers will spill onto your face, so it's best to lean forward slightly to avoid any fall out near your eye.
Step 4 Reapply Lash Boosting Mascara to seal and set the fibers by tapping on the mascara. (Brushing may cause some fibers to come off, so tapping is best.)
Step 5 (optional) For even more length and volume, repeat steps 2 and 3.
There is no fragrance to the mascara or fibers. The mascara didn't clump, but the fibers do tend to spill onto your skin. They didn't stick to my skin though, and were easy to wipe off with a tissue. I found that tapping the mascara on for step 4 kept more of the fibers on my lashes vs getting caught up in the mascara wand if I combed on the mascara. I also liked the extra volume and length Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit gave when I repeated steps 3 and 4.
Another bonus about the mascara is that the mascara formula contains the same lash-boosting peptide (myristoyl pentapeptide-17) that's found in the original Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum to visibly enhance natural lash growth and appearance of lashes! It also effectively conditions and nourishes lashes, so they don't feel dry or brittle.
The Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit didn't clump or smudge. The fibers never flaked off. It claimed to last for up to 24 hours, so I committed a beauty sin and wore it to bed and woke up with my lashes looking exactly the same.
Definitely try the new Physicians Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit for easy DIY ultra-glam lashes in just two minutes! I think you'll love it!
