I always get excited when I receive products to review in the post, but there was one arrival this week that got me just itching to try out! It is the Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes Mascara – it promises to instantly lengthen lashes by up to 5mm!
The idea of the product is that you apply a coat of mascara, pop this over the top and then seal in with a second coat of mascara. Something I instantly liked is that it doesn’t trick you into purchasing a second product just to work with it – it claims to work well with any mascara!
I adore the packaging – no, the tube isn’t this big! It is contained within this cardboard holder, which is adorable. (My brain is telling me to write “it’s like it’s in a little house!” but I don’t want to. Oh. Oops)
As soon as I heard about this product, I was so intrigued as to what it would look like and how it would work. As soon as I saw the brush, I was a little shocked! It looked like it was covered in cotton wool, and I suddenly understood how it worked…
It was time to put it to the test! Here is what my lashes looked like beforehand:
I added one coat of my Benefit BadGal Lash Mascara (I chose one that doesn’t necessarily give a lot of volume or length on its own to really see the effects of the Magnifibres!)
I then applied a coat of the Magnifibres with my eyes looking down (as per the instructions). My lashes looked quite odd afterwards!
It was time for my second coat of mascara – I probably applied the equivalent of two coats. This is how my lashes turned out!
I have to admit that whilst my lashes did look thicker and have more volume, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the result. I thought that maybe I hadn’t applied enough of the Magnifibres product to my lashes, so tried again on the other eye…
That’s more like it! I was much more impressed with my second attempt. I think I just need to practise a little more with the product and really coat it onto the lashes when I use it. I do think that the mascara is a great invention, and although I don’t think my lashes look like falsies in the end, they do look longer and thicker!
The Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes wand retails for £20 and will shortly be available in Selfridges!
What do you think of this product? I’d love to know!
