I've tried a couple different brands of fibre mascaras in the past, but until now they've mostly been a two-step process. One tube with mascara and the other with fibres. Does anyone remember when they were white? I still don't understand that concept. It was a nightmare trying to cover up the look of dandruff on my eyelashes. Maybe that was a mascara primer...I'm not totally sure. Regardless, I like that the Super Sizer Fibers Mascara is an easy to use, one-step product...that's dark - I got mine in Very Black. It's never cumbersome and fits into my regular beauty routine.
The wand is exactly the same as the original version with short, plastic bristles perfect for gripping at the root and combing through lashes. The new formula apparently has 29,000 fibres in every tube to achieve 400% more volume. That's a lot of volume! The great thing is I never notice the fibres falling out of place onto my face or in my eyes. I'm a contact wearer so this is a pretty big deal for me!
Fun fact: When the lady at the cash register told me she was wearing this mascara, I actually didn't believe her because they looked like fake lashes or extensions.
It doesn't thicken my lashes quite as much as I would expect, but I am more interested in length than volume, and this mascara does not disappoint in that department. The fibres grab on to the tips of my lashes to add even more extension and I'm left with the look of long, natural falsies. It's perfect for every day wear but can be built up for a more glam look if desired.
It's official! After almost a year of pure devotion to the original Super Sizer Mascara, I have a new favourite.
