Today I am working with Cougar Beauty, have you heard of them? If you haven’t I highly suggest you check out their products. Today’s review is on a fibre lash mascara. Cougar is a brand from the UK and all products are manufactured there. They pride themselves in offering their customers new, edgy and of high quality products. They also only use cruelty free formulas, so there is no testing done on animals (thumbs up!). Their packaging and marketing supplies are made from recycled materials (thumbs up again!). They also source all ingredients locally, so all transportation is cut out, which in turn benefits our planet. Way to go Cougar! I’d like to thank Cougar and the Rosdon Group for sending me this product.
If you know me, you know i’ve tried basically every single mascara from drugstore to high-end. Mascara is one of my favourite products, and I am always looking to try new ones and new formulas/techniques. Cougar sent me their Magic Fiber Lash Extender Kit, and it is quite different than anything I have tried before. I have tried some mascaras which have the fibres already in the product, but this one you apply separately.
The kit comes with two items, the mascara and the fibres. The packaging states it will increase the thickness and volume of your lashes while still keeping them looking natural. Here is a closer look at the products and how to use them:
Step 1: Apply the mascara to clean lashes (they suggest doing one eye at a time). You apply this from the base of the lashes to the tips, and ensure every lash has been coated, as you would with a regular mascara.
Step 2: Apply the fibre extender immediately after the mascara to just the tips of your lashes. You have to make sure you do this right away while the mascara you first applied is still wet.
Step 3: Apply a second coat of the mascara from step 1 in order to seal the fibres.
I was really happy with the final result! I could really see how my lashes were significantly longer, and a few people I saw the first day I had tried it commented on how long my eyelashes looked. The only thing I found I didn’t get was a ton of volume, the product for sure gives you a lot of length, but in my experience I had to build up the product to get a bit more volume. Or a tip I have is to just apply a coat of a volumizing mascara overtop once it has dried. So I would say in terms of mascara effect it is a lot more lengthening than it is volumizing.
Another thing I loved is how I had this on all day (8 hours +) and it did not flake off, leave dark marks around my eyes or smudge whatsoever. The formula is really great and it gives you long lashes for all day wear with no re-application necessary. The consistency of the formula isn’t super thick, so it makes application on the lashes so easy, no clumping and no mess. You can also use a lash comb to separate your lashes to achieve a more “fanned-out” look. In terms of removal this is a winner. Sometimes mascara can be so stubborn to get off completely, and this is also a “water resistant” formula so not fully waterproof, but still resistant. Yet I was so impressed with how it came off SO easily. I used my daily cleanser and warm water and it came right off no problem, without leaving a mess behind.
Have you tried a fibre mascara kit before? I highly recommend giving Cougar products a try! The formula is great and the company values and philosophies are inspiring and so refreshing to see! This also works great as an alternative to eyelash extensions, which are really expensive and time consuming. I like how you can apply this product and it also washes off contrary to lash extensions.
