If you could have lashes that look like they’ve got falsies on but don’t, wouldn’t you want to give it a try? I love fibre mascaras and I love falsies but when I try to recall the last time I used falsies, I cannot even remember the occasion I wore them to. Falsies are great, especially for evening makeup when lights are generally dimmer. However, taking them off can be a hassle, especially if the glue you use is strong, or if your makeup remover isn’t powerful enough. Also, you need to take good care of them so that they can be reused.
That’s why I think I may have found you a great alternative to falsies. The Faux Fayc Fauxlash Mascara Duo can save you all the trouble and still give you enviable lashes. It contains two tubes, one of which is called the Transplanting Gel and the other, simply Natural Fibres. To use it, coat a bit of the Transplanting Gel on the tips of your lashes after you have applied mascara. Then, apply the Natural Fibres to the tips of your lashes. Finally, apply another coat of the Transplanting Gel to seal the fibres in. If you want more length, you can add more fibres, followed by the Transplanting Gel again.
I love this product. The fibres are easy to apply and it really does lengthen your lashes. You can tell the difference it makes, especially in my latest beauty tutorial, which you can watch on YouTube here.
The tricky thing about this product is that the fibres can be messy and give you fluffy lashes instead of defined ones. That’s because the fibres stick to one another and when one of them sticks to your lashes (that have already been coated with the Transplanting Gel), the rest follow. To get rid of this problem, I came up with two solutions:
- Use a lash comb to remove excess fibres after applying the fibres.
- Brush off excess fibres off the side of the tube before applying them to your lashes.
When you re-apply the Transplanting Gel to seal the fibres in, comb through your lashes as well. The bristles of the gel brush are firm, so they can act as a lash comb while making your lashes fuller.
The Faux Fayc Fauxlash Mascara Duo works great like a pair of false lashes but it comes off easily with some water. It wouldn’t last a day at the beach – if you’re planning to go into the water – but would be perfect for a night out or when you want some Bambi eyes. You can get the duo at the Faux Fayc website, where it’s currently retailing at S$38.
Away with the falsies,
