Tarte Best In Faux Lash Extending Fibers - Review

July 16, 2014

Today I have a review of a new mascara product from Tarte. This is the Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers and I ended up ordering it online from Ulta. You get two mascara tubes, One being the fibers and the other being a small version of the Lights, Camera, Lashes, 4-1 Mascara. I have to say that this system has a lot of mixed reviews. Some didn't like it at all because the fibers were falling out everywhere and in the eyes. Other said that you just need to use it the right way in order for it to work the best. See my thoughts and more photos below!

More info on the Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers:
Get the wide-eyed look of false eyelashes at home without the traditional faux lashes. The lightweight, black sculpting fibers seamlessly build onto your own lashes to achieve a naturally voluminous eye look in three simple steps: First, prep lashes with the included Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara. Next, extend lashes with fibers, using a gentle patting motion, and apply fibers onto top of lashes, starting at the middle and working outwards toward the tip. Finally, set them in place with mascara, applying a final coat to lock in the fibers—leaving lashes with dramatic volume. 
That's not hair, those are the Tarte fibers.
The first time I used the fibers they were not sticking to my lashes, even though I had put the first coat of mascara on. I thought this is not working, it's not going to work. What happened was I was applying the fibers like a regular mascara. Wrong! I should of read the direction more closely, because it says to use the fibers with a patting motion and start at the middle of the lashes going up to the tips.

It took a little bit of practice, but once I did it the right way my lashes looked great! I made sure to press the fibers into my lashes and not use a sweeping motion. You can see from the pics, my lashes looked bigger and even had a "false lashes” like effect. My lashes weren’t as full as I had hoped, but from afar you couldn’t tell. I got the length that I wanted, even more than I expected. It just looked like I had really long black lashes.

As I’ve been wearing this mascara, I’ve been comparing it to the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Mascara. That one is great as well, but the fibers in that one are white, long and more fluffy like cotton. I have gotten those in my eyes and they hurt so bad, especially with contacts on. Also with the Too Faced mascara, after you apply you have to use a lash comb because they clump up your lashes so bad. I haven’t had any problems with clumping or the fibers hurting my eyes with the Tarte system. I’ve had the fibers get on my eyelids so I apply this before using an eyeshadows so they are easy to sweep off my eyes with a q-tip. One more thing about the two fiber mascaras: Too Faced is $35, Tarte is $19.

Overall, this is a great lash extending system for those that want more length and the false lashes effect. I definitely recommend and would repurchase this. If there are any questions or something I didn’t cover, please comment and let me know. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Tarte Best In Faux Lash Extending Fibers retails for $19 and can be found at Ulta, Sephora, and Tarte online.

  1. How do you think this fiber mascara would work for people with sensitive eyes and/or who wear contact lenses?

    1. Hard Candy makes one that you can get at Wal-Mart. I would give that a shot before you splurge on the Tarte. Always good to take a test drive before you buy the car, right? :)

  2. I think the fibers might bother some if they end up getting in your eyes, so you have to be more careful when applying. I have sensitive eyes and wear contacts and the fibers haven't bothered me at all. Just depends on the person.
