Beauty Obsession: FiberWig Mascara

04/30/2007 at 11:00 AM ET

My mascara is always flaky. By the end of the day, I have a trail of ashy remnants beneath my eyes. And to make matters worse it finds its way into creases I didn’t even know existed and magnifies them. So I’m always happy to try a new mascara. When I heard about FiberWig mascara, imported from Japan and purported to mimic the look of false lashes, I had to try it. The mascara deposits fibers onto your lashes to extend and volumize them. And, I’m happy to report, it lived up to my expectations, by not clumping even when I applied an extra coat several hours later. Even better, I got through the day without those telltale black smudges. You can buy Imju Fiberwig mascara at for $22. — Katie Dickens

Although this is described as a miracle mascara, I would never, ever ever ever, pay $20 or more for the stuff. Wow! It’d better be great for that price!!

I’ll stick with my Bad Gal lash from Benefit in both Black and Blue – makes my lashes rock!!!

I second that Ashley! $22 for mascara? Yeah right. I don’t care if it is just like fake lashes – no one should have to pay that much for gunk to put on your lashes.

I LOVE Bad Gal by Benefit – best I’ve used – but that’s also around $22. I haven’t found great mascara for less than that and I’ve tried around 20 brands (DiorShow is good too – around the same price). I might give this a try . . . mascara lasts around 3 months – so what’s an extra $10 over 3 months . . .

I disagree with the people who think that paying more than $20 for mascara is outrageous. The best mascara I’ve ever used was DiorShow Mascara, which is $23. It makes my minuscule Asian eyelashes actually show up. And for a person who doesn’t wear any other makeup, it’s worth every penny. And as jessie points out, what’s an extra $10?

Has anyone tried this mascara yet?? Does it have the fake lash effect??

I just tried this mascara this weekend, and it’s totally worth the 22 bucks. My eyelashes looked insanely long all night- no smudging and I rub my eyes tons because of my contacts.

i also use the DiorShow mascara…my boss bought it for me as part of my xmas gift last year and it’s the best one i have ever used…i would definitely try this new one…i know it seems weird to pay that much…but honestly, the cheaper brands are much worse to put on your eyes…if you care about health and that sort of thing…:)

If it looks just like fake lashes…then why not just buy the fake ones, they cost a whole lot cheaper!

BAD gal by benefit rocks…and its under twenty ($19) for those who wont pay more. it gives you the look of false lashes so easily and the new blue is awesome
