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.

Mia Adora Eyelash Curler Review

I am the first one to admit that I have zero experience with eyelash curlers. In fact, in order to use this product,  I had to scour a few Youtube videos for tips on how to use them.  For the most part, mascara seems to do the trick for me, but I think it was time this old dog learned a new trick.

I was sent this eyelash curler from Mia Adora for review. As you can see, it comes in what I would call a collapsible plastic box.  I am not sure if it was the fault of Amazon or the company, but when it arrived to me, the box was opened and the plastic rings were out of the box and the clip was off of the handles. Other than that, it luckily arrived to me in fine condition. I am assuming the two plastic rings are replacement grips for the handles.

After arming myself with some Youtube tutorials fresh in my mind, I grabbed my makeup mirror and threw it onto the 5X magnification side.  I have no idea what I have been afraid of all this time. These curlers set comfortably against my cheekbone as I clamped down onto my lashes. I held them in place for about 15 seconds. I repeated the process. I really like the fact that these are spring loaded, so that there is no way that you could accidentally pull away from your lid and yank out your eyelashes .

Technology has not been my friend today, but here is a picture I took off of my tablet showing you my results:

Sorry for the strange angle, I know my nose seems incredibly wide.  I think they curled my lashes very well, this is obviously with no mascara or other eye makeup on whatsoever.  I believe this is a quality product, that just needs to work on its packaging a bit.

They are available on Amazon for the retail cost of 11.95.  Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Blowout-SALE-Precision-Eyelashes-Extended/dp/B00QF6HHTK/ref=sr_1_1?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1431118908&sr=1-1&keywords=eyelash+curler+mia+adora
