As a lover of the look of false lashes, but not of the feel of them, I jumped at the chance to try new Magnifibres!
After applying your eye make-up remove any debris from your lashes: take a cotton bud and dip it into some eye make-up remover and gently rub over the lashes to remove any trace of eyeliner/shadow as it tends to be this that will fall onto your under eye area spoiling your make-up and not your mascara! Now you have the perfect base to start, begin by curling the lashes. I found this gave applying Magnifibres a better effect than on non-curled lashes.
Step 1: Apply a generous coat of mascara to your lashes from root to tip
Step 2: Immediately follow with a generous coat of Magnifibres again from root to tip; apply in the same way you would apply your mascara. Leave for 30-60 seconds and apply a second coat of mascara. It is best to do one eye at a time to ensure the initial coat of mascara is still wet allowing the fibres to adhere to your own lashes. The entire process is not time consuming as you can apply the first coat of mascara to one eye, then the fibres and while you wait for this to set you can carry out the same procedure to the other eye.
Step 3: Finish both lashes with a second coat of mascara. You can use any mascara, I used my usual volume enhancing mascara.
The product does not sit in clumps on your lashes once you have finished with your second coat of mascara nor does it stick you lashes together. I initially assumed the fibres would be suspended in some sort of cream or liquid, however they are not so don’t be alarmed to see the fibres just sitting on your first coat of mascara. They did not fall into my eye or cause any irritation which I often found happening with the glue for false lashes, also they didn’t fall off onto my face during the day. Another advantage of this product is it does not cause any damage to your own lashes which false lashes may do as you yank them off at the end of a night out. This product comes away with no effort as you remove you mascara.
As a glasses wearer this is perfect for achieving a false lash effect, false lashes tends to catch on frames and lenses which is really irritating. I constantly forgot and use to apply them before I dried my hair which resulted in melted lashes, removal of lashes and a touch up of my eye makeup. I love the effect of false lashes but simply could not be bothered with the downsides I found with wearing them.
This product provides a fantastic alternative to false lashes; its quick to use, looks great with and without glasses, doesn’t irritate or give the sense your eye is glued together, doesn’t cause damage to your own lashes and I even had the time to do it at 05:30 in the morning before my morning commute to work!
My recommendation to you for the week is to absolutely try this product you will be amazed. I will fall for any gimmick even if it does not work I usually convince myself it has to justify my ridiculous purchase and believe me there have been lots!! This however is not one of them, it really does work! I love it.
