Okie dokie dearies, I finally bought the Modelco Fibre Lash Mascara! This little beaute has had a lot of press especially from one Miss Danni Minogue but I decided to give her picture a miss. I don’t trust airburshed pictures, especially eyelashes. There never a true representation of the mascara all digitalized and false eyelashes. Pah. Its annoys me, for instance you’re doing a shoot for foundation, then you airbrush the picture so it falsifies how good the foundation is. grr.
Anyways back to the product at hand, to be honest, I’m in two minds about this. I love it, I hate it. Hmm, maybe I’ll decide as I’m writing. First of all I can’t figure out why modelco don’t just sell the fibre lashes bit separately too, for a reduced price. It’s not like people can’t use their own mascaras with this. you can. So Modelco if you read this. something to think about.
This works basically in three steps 1. mascara 2. fluff 3. mascara and then you can just go mental with it. First time I tried it I thought to just go with one layer, lets not go crazy. The mascara isn’t very thick it lengthens the lashes a treat, quite long before you start the fluff. The next bit is the fluff, first thing I learnt was that don’t put it too close to your lash line it REALLY irritates your eyes! I looked like a right pleb squinting and wafting my hands round my face. Anyway the next layer of mascara helped a bit got rid of the fluff in my eyeball.
Now this is where I’m not sure if I like it or not. The lashes are indeed lengthened but not very defined. Then again you sticking fluff on it You should expect it to look like that. My only concern then is if you use an eyelash comb your just going to brush all the fluff out. Although I do enjoy the long lashes, I tried as well with another mascara, one that more concentrated on thickening lashes and my lashes went very thick! You know what I decided, I do like it. It’s a bit like a new computer you have to find out its little tricks and experiment to get the most out of it. Only thing I suppose I definitely don’t like about it is the wand. For £35 i expect a better brush to be honest than a standard 1980’s mascara brush.
4/5 I think I do like this, you can mix it up and try different wands and mascaras with it, just don’t get it in your eye!
