For a while, d.j.v. beautenizer’s Fiberwig LX Mascara was a secret. But Rachael Ray mentioned it on one of her shows, and it immediately became a best-seller. It helped to have a celebrity endorsement, but that’s not the reason it flew off the shelves. The truth is that it works. I have used dozens of mascara brands over the past fifteen years, and nothing compares to Fiberwig. No smudging, no flaking, just pure lash enhancement.
The reason Fiberwig LX Mascara works so well is that instead of just sitting on top of the lash like regular mascara, it coats the lash with a rich fiber-film. Once the film is in place, it doesn’t budge until it gets rinsed away with water when you are ready to remove it.
Before I found Fiberwig LX Mascara, I would come home from work and wonder how long I had looked so silly with little flakes of mascara or big smudges under my eyes. Now, I don’t worry at all. In fact, I wore Fiberwig Mascara on a 5 mile hike recently, and even though there had been sweat dripping into my eyes and oily residue on my face, my mascara remained perfectly intact.
Most mascara is tough to remove. I tried many eye makeup removers to assist me, but most of the time, I was left with raccoon eyes which lasted until the morning. Fiberwig LX Mascara has never left a residue on my face after I’ve removed it. Its coating neatly slides off each lash into the sink. I know the delicate skin under my eyes approves.
Other mascaras take so much effort to remove that they can damage lashes, and typical mascaras dry them out. However, Fiberwig LX Mascara does the opposite. It contains panthenol, a type of vitamin B5 that boosts lash definition; natural silk extract; and botanical extracts, which nourish lashes.
There are a couple of tricks to getting the most out of your Fiberwig LX Mascara. The first is not to be alarmed by the clumps of fibers on the applicator brush. Simply reinsert the brush into the tube of mascara, and gently scrape the excess mascara from one side of your brush. This will allow the mascara to go on clump-free. Also, one coat of the mascara will do the trick and look like any other mascara. But if you want to extend your lashes and get more volume, you’ll need two coats. The manufacturer’s website gives one last tip: use your lash curler after applying the mascara. I tried it, and it works. No residue rubbed off onto the curler, and my mascara didn’t flake at all.
The one downside to Fiberwig Mascara is that it is not waterproof, so you can’t wear it when you swim. But that is probably the only time when Fiberwig Mascara won’t keep your lashes in perfect condition. Sweat and oil can’t make it budge, and those are the usual offenders.
Even though d.j.v. beautenizer’s Fiberwig LX Mascara is pricy for the average consumer at about $20 a tube, it’s worth every penny. Why spend $6 to $10 a tube to get mascaras that don’t work? Even waterproof mascaras, which are supposed to resist smudging, fall short of what Fiberwig can do. If you are sick of worrying about the state of your mascara, try Fiberwig LX. You won’t regret it.
