3D Fiber Lashes

I have tried many types of mascara and always went back to Great Lash because it is always has the best results for me.

I had heard of fiber lash mascara and because I read so many negative reviews, I did not try any brands. The reviews said that the fibers got into the eyes but when I use Younique, I did not have any issues with the fibers what-so-ever.

I also slept without washing the mascara off and I still did not have any eye itching or irritation.   The mascara rubbed off during the night but I had no raccoon eyes in the morning.


I use my regular mascara on my lashes, then the transplanting gel, followed by the fibers. I do this twice and then apply my regular mascara again. My lashes look 3x as thick as and slightly longer than with regular mascara.

Since I wear glasses, it is hard to get my eyes to stand out and this does the trick and doesn’t look gloppy. I wear it day and night.

I borrowed the picture because I did not get a great shot but the results are what you will get when you try it.

I’m impressed.

My representative is Kristin Williams. Delivery is prompt and I haven’t seen anything comparable in the stores.

I just received a box of VIP cosmetics.  My favorite product is the Liquid Shine with vitamin E. Although it is a little on the sticky side, I like the way it plumps my lips and keeps them from being dry. The healing qualities are superior to any other lip product that I have used.  I prefer the colorless Lip Shine for daily use.

Lip Shine  is available online at http://www.vipcosmetics.com

They include more makeup in their foundation so it is lasting a much longer time than the others that I have tried. I like the full kit because I can use a foundation and contour with the slightly darker shade. I have tried a lot of mineral makeup brands and this is my favorite..(via Colorevolution)
