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

I always buy one of this when i go to Japan every year. I have the teeny, tiny, stubby asian lashes and this stuff works for me! Thanks to the Japanese obession with big lashes, they have made a ton of products that works like magic. But i wouldn’t say this is for everyone, my best friend has natural long lashes and this stuff is too much for her.

I wear Diorshow too and its almost $30 in Canada. When you find something good that works its worth it. It’s so funny that people spend huge money on clothes but skimp out on something like this. lol $20… big deal.

I tried DiorShow because of all the hype that surrounds it and was greatly disappointed that it didn’t do a thing for my lashes. It also dried out in about a month. However, the next day I saw a co-worker who looked like she was wearing false lashes. It turns out she had on $7 Maybelline Full & Soft in blackest black. I tried the stuff out and could not belive the results. My eyes looked amazing. I also don’t understand how this mascara is “worse for my health” as one reader wrote. It’s composed of all the same ingrediants as the other stuff and I wash it off every night to avoid infection. Save the money and buy this stuff….you’ll be amazed.


My local tv station did a try it before you buy it on this and they said that this stuff isn’t worth the money it is just like any other cheap mascara. go to try it before you buy it to read their review

Fortunately, I’ve been blessed with long eyelashes, but my sister got the thicker ones of the clan. We both swear by Loreal Lashout. I’ve been using it for years, and I always get asked if my lashes are fake. I recently tried the Loreal Telescopic mascara and that REALLY does lengthen them! My lashes were so long, they were hitting the lense of my glasses! But, I’m willing to give this one a try! Anything for glamour :o)

Mascara is the most important make up item i own !!! is all i really wear besides my bare essentials…i would definetely try this one …i dont think 22 dollars is bad at all, i dont care to pay a little extra for a great product…

I am from Japan, and I would say that I love Makeup specially Mascaras. I buy all brands even though cannot be find in My country, I still find ways to get it or shop online.Most of the time, I just tested once or twice every mascara and keep it(collections).I already have a LOT!And I dont use all. I may be nuts by buying bulks of different mascaras, but its what I am fun of. I usually arranged them from cheapest to most expensive mascara.
I just want to share you guys that the prices of U.S cosmetics here in Japan are VERY Expensive. Just like ex; the Diorshow which price here is $48USD each. Talika Lipocils 10ml is $60USD. ERA Airbrush Foundation $98USD each. Lancome Mascara $40USD each. I just thought of sharing its prices because, I read some of you here swear not to buy mascaras for $20? I am so jealous, because to think, you still can buy those in cheaper in your place than in my place. I like to buy american brands of makeup ,though very expensive.We dont have a choice, it is the price sold here is doubled or tripled:(
