It’s time for another mascara review at Swish-Style! It might seem like I try too many, but I think it’s an easy product to shop around with since there are so many formulations and brands. It’s also less noticeable than say a horrid shade of purple lipstick or too glittery eyeshadow so I’m not as afraid to experiment. A couple weeks ago I ordered the Fiberwig mascara from Sephora. I have heard a few positive things about it, like it is different than any other mascara you’ll try and it makes your lashes look like falsies. I don’t know if I completely agree with the last statement but I do agree that it is different than any other mascara I’ve applied. When you pull the wand out of the tube, you see all the little fibers and it looks a bit fuzzy. Sounds weird, but it went on smoothly and feels extremely light. It says that little tubes coat your individual lashes and I definitely can attest to that. It dries very fast and is drier than anything I’ve experienced on my eyes before. There is absolutely zero smudging and even if you rub your eyes, nothing comes off! It’s kinda strange actually. Taking it off is very different than typical mascaras. It easily comes off with just warm water, but it doesn’t smear off like most do. It comes off in little clumps, like the tubes of fibers just peel off your lashes and leave them completely clean. So my typical eye makeup remover did not work with Fiberwig but it was still a simple process to remove. I love the unique formulation of this product, the quick drying, extreme length it creates and the no smudge worries. However, it is not very thickening and that is something that I love in other mascaras such as Diorshow. I might just use both Fiberwig and Diorshow for awhile until I figure out what my favorite is. Or who knows, maybe I’ll try another again in a few months and start the decisions all over again!
