lash length: the easy and affordable way



Hey ladies!

 As far as I know, everyone wants longer, thicker lashes. It opens up your eyes and ups the glamour factor! What's not to love? 

Granted, there are a lot of mascaras that can dramatically increase your lash length on their own - but so far, nothing compares to the product up for discussion today. 

Of course, there are other alternatives. 

Falsies. 
Semi permanent lash extensions. 
Single false lashes. 
Primers. 

Don't get me wrong, these are all great options. I, for one, have a love/hate relationship with falsies. No matter how much I practice, I never get them on very well. Also… the time. It takes me SO LONG! Lash extensions? Absolutely amazing. I have been dying to try them, and will… eventually. The price tag is a little steep, and that doesn't include weekly to bi weekly fills, which really adds up. 

So how can you get that dramatic lash length WITHOUT wasting time and breaking the bank? 

I'm so glad you asked. 

Let me introduce you to your new best friend !



I ended up buying this product because I had previous experience using Too Faced fiber mascara. I liked it, but it always got flaky and in my eye and ended up not being worth the pain. On a random Ulta browse, I found the Tarte Faux fiber. It is black fibers, as opposed to white (Too Faced) which I definitely prefer. 

And my favorite part? 

It is $20 vs $35!!

YESSSS!!! That's a pretty dramatic price difference. 


TO USE:
1. Apply a coat of regular mascara. ( I use my own, normal Loreal Carbon Black, because it's the bomb)
2. Pat in/comb up the fibers before your mascara dries. You will see the fibers clinging to your lashes. Start on the outside of your eye, at the base of your lashes and move up and in. 
3. Apply another coat of mascara to seal the deal. 

EASY!

I have a few photos to speak to this product….

Tarte/Makeup application complete!


Final… lashes + makeup+ hair!



I can see a dramatic difference in the length of my lashes from when I use a regular mascara compared to the addition of Tarte Faux Fiber. 

So, ladies, what do you think? It's a one minute addition to your routine with a HUGE payoff for long, thick lashes. I am ALWAYS up for that! :)

Linking up with Biana to weekend!

  7. I'm in the market for a new mascara to try, I might have to check this one out. I used grande lash md for awhile, the mascara didn't do anything although the growth serum was phenomenal! Thanks for the recommendation hun.
