Hello there. Long time no see.
I am back. I am back from a much needed holiday back to Brazil and seeing friends and all that good stuff. I have been missing in action, I know. I will do my best to keep up with the blog. Like I said on my last post I have so many ideas and new products and tips to share with you all.
Please bare with me as I still need to make some adjustments to the blog. New year, new look! Will try to do at least a couple of posts a week!
On the mean time, I will leave you with my latest find, which happens to be the best find this year so far. Bold statement I know, but very true!
Whilst on the plane on my way to Brazil I was very bored as it was such a long flight. And times like these you can only do so much, having watched pretty much all the films available I decided to look through the duty free magazine they had on board. And there it was. Something I never heard of before. Magnifibres! It just caght my attention instantly.
I'm sure we all want longer looking lashes everyday, but despite being a make up artist, I don't reach for falsies on a daily basis just because I don't like the feel of them during the day. I love individuals, but simply don't have the time to put those on in the morning before I rush out the door. So I rely on coats and more coats of mascara. I've tried pretty much them all and my current favorite at the moment is the YSL False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara. Love that stuff and it's a difficult one to replace. I was never too bothered with length and always focused on fuller looking lashes and this mascara has it all for me.
But since discovering Magnifibres I completely feel in love with it. I must say I thought it was a bit of a gimmick at first, but I always fall for it and buy anyways and end disapointed with the product. At the time I remember thinking "what have I got to lose?" I was bored and knew something like this would keep me enterteined for a while.
First of all, I thought this was like one of those lash primers that you buy from Mac or Dior, those white ones that you just add an extra coat of mascara on top to thicken and lenghten the lashes. But to my surprise there was actual fibres on the wand. Almost like cotton fibres on them, and the first thing I thought was that if I get this stuff in my eye, it will be very uncomfortable. And I was right!
Like I said I thought it was sort of a lash primer, but this is applied between two layers of your mascara. Apply a coat of your favourtie mascara, then add a coat of Magnifibre, wait 30 seconds and add a second coat of your mascara and voila!
It says on the box that it lengthen lashes by up to 5mm and definetely gives a fuller looking lash effect and I love it. The only thing I dont like about it is that it takes a lot of effort and very good oil based eye make up remover to get rid of it but this can also be a good thing if you have very oily eyelids like myself and you need a primer for everything.
It is made of viscose fibres and it is suitable for contact lens wearer. As far as getting it in your eyes, it only happened once and never had an irrititaion from it. I would definetely recomend it for those who like a false lash effect without the falsies as it is so much easier to carry around and theres no mess.
Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and you shouldn't have any problems with it. Also spread it evenly so you don't get a clumpy lash effect instead! Have you heard of this product before?
