Until now, apparently, since Physician's Formula now has their own Target-exclusive version.
Since I was originally looking for a Physician's Formula eyeliner when I saw this package, I figured I'd give the fiber "lash booster kit" a try. The pack was $15, which is a pretty good deal considering a single Physician's Formula product is usually in the $11 range and the pack comes with three products.
The way it works is you put on a layer of mascara to prime the lashes, then you brush on the fibers, then another layer of mascara. I know, it's a pretty involved process. Spoiler alert: It's also messy.
Here's what my lashes look like with two coats of good ol' mascara.:
|Yep, that's a raccoon tail behind me.|
And then I put on the fibers. The wand looks like this:
|Looks like a mini chimney sweeper, am I right?|
And no matter how hard you try to not blink when you're brushing them on, the fibers will get EVERYWHERE. I'm not kidding. Even just opening the tube spills fibers all over my counter, which is enough to make me NOT want to use this. I absolutely hate a messy bathroom counter.
And they'll get all over your face. And in your eyes some more. At this point I put on the Physician's Formula mascara to "lock in" the fibers, which will fall on your face and in your eyes even more. I'm not a huge fan of this particular mascara, but it works alright. After that, I put on a heavy coat of the NYX Badunkadunk, and this is what the end result was:
There's definitely a difference in length, but the process is so involved and time consuming that this is not something I could ever do on a regular basis. Plus I don't really like having itchy eyes all day, big surprise. However, if I have a little extra time in the morning and don't anticipate a long, busy day, I might reach for this product.
That's all, folks! Let me know your thoughts on this/similar products; I'd love to hear from you!
