Mascara Monday: Too Faced Better Than False Lashes.

I was very intrigued by this new lash system from Too Faced called Better Than False Lashes. Of course, it promises big bold lashes, but in a different way as it uses actual lashes fibers in a multi-step system. I know there are a few fiber lash systems out there, and having never tried any makes this process new to me.

You get two tubes, which make up the 3 steps. One tube is the first step, called the Activating Base and Top Coat. The next tube is the Nylon Lash Fibers. You simply apply the base coat to the lashes, followed by the nylon fiber step, and then finish with another coat of the first product, which is now used as a top coat.

Basically, the first step is a mascara. Used alone, it gives nice length, separation and volume to the lashes. The next step, which I was nervous about because I wear contact lenses, is the fiber application. I was worried that I would get all these little fibers flying into my eyes, but I did not. The nylon fibers clung to the base coat and didn't budge. Phew!  I immediately noticed that I had a lot more lash to build upon, which was apparent when I applied the first product again, now the top coat. My lashes tripled in volume and even more length was added. I was so impressed!

For everyday, depending on the mascara, I use one to two coats. For an all out smokey eye look or night-time eye, I almost always use three coats of mascara and this system takes no more time than that. The difference is the end result when using Too Faced Better Than False Lashes because my lashes are the biggest and boldest that they have ever been without wearing actual falsies.

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes sells for $35.00 and is available right now at Sephora.

I love this mascara and cherish the lashes I get from it. I thought I'd mind the extra steps but my wimpy lashes love it and I won't go back.
Chea - So happy to hear you like this one. I hesitated at first, but am so glad I finally gave it a try.
This sounds great. I read about makeup artists using fibers and wondered how they ever applied them. This system looks great.
