Review: Too Faced Better Than False Lashes

I had been curious about lash fibers for a while. It seemed like a really easy way to beef up your lashes more than just a mascara primer (which I'm often disappointed in) and not as over the top as most false lashes (which can sometimes just look too fake). It did seem kind of weird to brush hair-like fibers onto your eyelashes. Wouldn't they get in your eye? Finally my curiosity got the best of me one day while I was in Sephora, so I grabbed the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme and decided to give it a try. I've tried it a few times now to figure out how I really felt about it before I reviewed it for you, and after those few times, I am totally wowed. This stuff is fantastic, gorgeous, amazing, quick, easy, beautiful, noticeable results. Shall I go on? Indeed, I will...

It does take a little getting used to, but it's super easy. Not getting used to as in learning how to use it, but as in not feeling weird brushing white hairs on your lashes. Once you apply it though, you realize how easy it is and how the fibers don't all just fall into your eyes. Then you see the results annnnnnd you're hooked. I loved the results the first few times, and then I decided to experiment and put another mascara I already love for plumping, the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara over it as a very last step, and it seriously got even better!

The set comes with two tubes, one larger tube containing black mascara, and another smaller tube containing the fibers. Here's what you do:
1) Apply the black mascara just like you normally would
2) Apply a few swipes of the fibers on top of that black mascara. I would definitely recommend only one or two swipes. Speaking from experience, applying three or more is when the fibers do actually start to fall in your eyes, and that's not fun. Plus, the one or two really is all you need.
3) Apply the black mascara again over the fibers to seal them and obviously make your lashes black again.
4) Go in with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and pop that on top of what you just did. This step is optional, but I really like the boldest lashes possible, and this amps up what you just did with the fibers even more. Watch how many layers you keep adding, because if you're like me and you get mascara happy, you can end up slightly clumpy. I don't necessarily mind that, as I like really dense lashes, but if you want length and separation more than bold and dense, you may want only one swipe. You can see between the Step 4 picture and the final result picture the difference between one swipe of the Better Than Sex, and several swipes of it.
