I have had mixed experiences with false eyelashes. I have come to the conclusion they are more trouble than they are worth. Yet I do dream of transforming my fine, short lashes into long fluttery lashes. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of press for fiber mascara, of course I was intrigued. Can Fiber mascara give me the lashes I desire? When I was given the opportunity to try Bella Eleganze Fiber Mascara, I just could not resist.

I did apply regular waterproof mascara to the lower lashes.

My Experience Using Bella Eleganze Fiber Mascara:
|Just to show you the difference: one eye has two coats of Bella Eleganze Mascara, no other makeup worn|
I had a slight learning curve using this mascara. It is basically a three step process (four if you curl your lashes). I found that it is important to only apply a little of the fiber each layer, otherwise there is the potential for eye irritation.
When I get it right, I my short, thin eyelashes are transformed into long, fluttery lashes. And they actually look quite natural. I tested the “waterproof” claims by splashing water on my face and the mascara didn’t budge. I haven’t worn then swimming, but it held up to the splash test. The mascara was easily removed with a little coconut oil and warm water and a washcloth (be gentle!)
If you are patient and careful, this can be a great alternative to false eyelashes. I personally found it easier to apply than false eyelashes and the look is more natural.
I was slightly bothered by the product’s smell at first, then I noticed that my other mascara has a similar scent just not quite as strong. I didn’t experience any eye irritation though. I did experience a little irritation on my first application–it wa more like a loose lash in the eye feeling. I think I applied too much of the fiber, I have learned to only apply a little with each coat and haven’t had any issues.
