MOM REVIEW: DAO'S FIBER LASH MASCARA
PRODUCT REVIEWED ON: NOVEMBER 8, 2016
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED: $28.48
I feel like I'm constantly on the hunt for a new mascara to try, so I was really excited to test out Dao's Fiber Lash Mascara. I've never used anything like it before!
HOW WE TESTED
It comes in a box with two tubes - one for the mascara gel and one for the fibers. The enclosed pamphlet shows that it is to be applied in three steps:
First you coat your lashes with the mascara gel.
Apply a coat of fibers before the gel dries.
Apply a second coat of the mascara gel to seal in the fibers.
I found that this product takes a little getting used to, so I made sure to test it out several times before giving my final review. When I first applied it, I made the mistake of doing my mascara in the order that I normally would (with my foundation already done). There is quite a bit of fallout, and the fibers stuck to my foundation and were very difficult to remove. The second time around I learned my lesson and applied it before any of my other makeup. I wiped away the fibers with a damp cotton pad.
Although I loved the look of my lashes after using this mascara, due to the fact that it's a three step process and the fallout of the fibers, this is not the product for me. Having said that, mascara is a very personal preference type of product, so you may have a totally different opinion than me!
MILK AND CONFETTI MOM VERDICT
Once I was happy with the application, I found that the fibers really lengthened my lashes and gave a beautiful fluffy effect that lasted all day.
The mascara and fibers were easily removed with a cotton pad and eye makeup remover (like a traditional mascara).
The fibers had a tendency to fall out during the day. I didn't feel confident knowing that there could be fibers on my face at any given time!
It's too time consuming to be applying mascara in three steps on a daily basis. As a mom with two young children, I rarely have too much time to get ready, so I don't want to over-complicate my makeup routine. I would have no issue taking the time for a special occasion, but I think that I could achieve a similar look with traditional mascara. I could even go for false lashes which would also be time consuming (because I'm horrible at applying them), but I wouldn't have to worry about any fallout
