Magnifibres Brush-on False Lashes


I'm excited to share Magnifibres with you because it's the most exciting new product I've tried in quite some time! Magnifibres is a brush-on product that gives the effect of false eyelashes without the fussy, messy glue or a costly appointment at the salon every 3 to 4 weeks. 

Personally, I've been blessed with nice lashes. They're pretty long and they curl naturally, however I've met quite a few ladies who have very fine or short lashes and benefit endlessly from the volume and length they can get from falsies or extensions. That said, even I crave a bit more drama now and then, but I hate wearing false eyelashes! The glue, the mess and the irritation to my contacts is too much to handle, not to mention the very unnatural look they give to anyone standing closer than 10 feet in front of me. I've looked into the whole eyelash extensions situation, but shudder in horror of the idea that you're not supposed to get them wet or get any product on them. How do you wash your face, shower or remove your make-up? Yuck!

Magnifibres comes in a tube with a brush similar to a mascara and can be used alongside any mascara. I've tried it with several types from high-end to bargain basement and it works beautifully every time. Basically, you apply one coat of mascara as you normally would, then a coat of the Magnifibres and let that set for 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, you top the Magnifibres with another coat of mascara.

What I love about this product is that it produces results efficiently. It takes about 3 minutes total and va va va boom - power lashes! I also love that you can get different results with a few tactics. Voluminizing or lengthening mascaras yield bolder results while using it with a plain mascara such as Maybelline Great Lash gives a more natural, but still lengthened look. You can use up to 3 coats of Magnifibres, repeating the process over and over for getting extreme volume if that's what you're after, however I've found that unnecessary, getting great results with only one coat. I find very minimal irritation to my contact lenses using this product and it's easily removed with a basic eye make-up remover.

You can see here my lashes with one coat of only mascara on the left. The middle photo shows what the Magnifibres looks like when you apply it - little bits of fluff stuck to the lashes. The photo on the right shows the final result using only one coat of Magnifibres. My lashes are a lot longer and fuller! I love love love this product!

In these photos I used Magnifibres with GOSH Cosmetics Darling Lashes Extreme Volume Mascara, which is my favorite at the moment. It's a great mascara and the brush is amazing - it helps to use a mascara with a good brush so your lashes don't get too clumpy.

Magnifibres is available at Selfridges among other places and retails for £20, a bargain if you ask me. I definitely recommend this product, especially with the make-up trends making a move for the darker noir & grunge looks. A dark eyeliner or smokey eye with extended lashes is beautiful and super sexy!
