I have been curious about these two-step fiber lash systems for about a year now, so I jumped at the chance to be able to review this particular one from Mia Adora. Their system is called the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. It is water resistant, contains natural and non-toxic ingredients, and is smudge resistant. It is a 3 step formula using two different tubes. The first tube is a black magnifying gel that you apply first and last, and the second tube contains the black 3D fibers. It is supposed to magnify your lashes by 300%. Of course, that claim I cannot test and prove or disprove. It comes in an attractive satin lined carrying case, and the directions for use are on the inside lid. It is not tested on animals. Here are some close-ups of the case itself.
The company also provides an e-book with some tips on using the mascara. They do state that there may be a learning curve and practice required to use this mascara. I found it extremely simple to use just by following the directions on the lid. The first step they recommend is to curl your lashes. For me, in general, this is optional, but I did do it for testing purposes. You then have the option of applying a thin coat of any mascara you happen to own of your choice. I tried the Benefit They’re Real and also a Cover Girl Megacurl mascara, which will be pictured.
This is a system where you are supposed to do one eye at a time, other than the option of applying your own mascara once.
Step 1 is to apply a generous coat of the magnifying gel from the base to the top of your lashes, using 15-20 strokes to ensure lashes are coated. While the gel is still wet is when you apply the fibers from mid lash to the ends using 10-15 strokes. Step 3 is to allow the fibers to dry (under a minute) and then to re-apply the magnifying gel to seal the fibers in place using 15-20 strokes again.
Here are some closeups of what the wands look like. Sorry the fibers one came out a bit blurry.
I got some pretty amazing results with and without my own mascara. I am not one to wear false eyelashes and I do tend to go for a more natural look unless I am filming for my You tube channel, which is when I will most likely use this product. I think you can have a variety of results depending on what mascara you apply beforehand. All positive of course. I did accidentally fall asleep while wearing this, and when I woke up there were only a few black fiber dots underneath my eyes. I was pretty impressed with the longevity of the formula. Cleanup is simple as well. Simply wipe away with a cloth with warm water or a little makeup remover if desired. No scrubbing necessary whatsoever.
Here are my results . The first is with my CoverGirl mascara and the second using only this fiber lash system on its own. I think they both look equally impressive. If any clumping occurs, simply use a spoolie or an eyelash comb to achieve the look you want.

So what do you think? Have you tried any of the fiber lash systems? I highly recommend this one!
