I am forever on a quest to find my perfect mascara. There have been a few that have come close before, but never one that has done exactly what I want. As there are new releases all of the time, it gives me a chance to continue my quest. This time around, I picked up the new X Fiber mascara from L’Oreal.
I like a mascara where you can achieve different looks by adding more coats, which is why this stood out to me. This mascara has product at each end, one end is a primer that adds volume and the other is full of fibers to add length. L’Oreal recommend adding 3 coats to create a Volume Lash look and 5 coats for an X-Treme look.
Each wand is slightly different. The primer wand is straight with a slight wave at the bottom and the mascara wand is thicker with a slight curve to it. Both are really easy to use and apply lots of product.
You can notice the difference, even with just 1 coat of primer. It adds a subtle amount of length and volume.
3 coats – Volume Flash Lash look
Three coats of this mascara on top of the primer adds a lot of volume and a nice amount of length too. The wand makes them fan out quite well.
5 coats – X-Treme False Lash look
I didn’t think that I would be able to see the difference between 3 coats and 5, but I really can. They are a lot longer and you can see where the fibers have increased the length.
The thicker and longer the lashes, the better for me so I definitely prefer the 5 coat look. This lasts all day without budging or flaking at all. I really like this mascara, but I wouldn’t quite say it is the one that I have been searching for, it just lacks something for me but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is! ♥
