Better Than False Lashes is different from most mascaras. It comes with two tubes – one is the base and top coat, the other is nylon fibers that build up the lashes, making them longer and thicker.
It’s definitely not your average mascara. There are three steps:
1. First, you prime your lashes with the gold tube black mascara. This gets lashes wet and ready for step two. I found it made my lashes look darker, longer, and thicker, like a regular mascara, but they weren’t super dramatic – yet.
2. Next, you go over your mascara-laden lashes with the Nylon Lash Fibers. The fibers stick to the wetness of the mascara and build up longer, thicker lashes.
Once you do this, your lashes look like a furry white caterpillar things. It’s an interesting look, for sure.
3. For the third step, you apply the mascara over your lashes one more time. The mascara makes the fibers meld together, and it covers the white cast, so you are left with super thick, super long lashes because they have these fiber extensions. Do they look as dramatic as false eyelashes? Not quite, but they sure do look much thicker and longer than regular mascara creates.
If you close your eyes tightly, you will find that the upper and lower lashes sort of stick together. That was the only drawback I found to this system. Otherwise, it was very easy to apply, the look was dramatic and buildable – I did a quick, daytime-drama look here, but you can go even more dramatic if you want. For those with thin, short lashes this is going to be a miracle product.
I really like the system, it doesn’t interfere with my contacts and it doesn’t smudge or smear, either. The next time you are in Sephora, or are making an online order, you definitely want this set in your basket. – Lisa
