Ladies, there are some things I’m not willing to compromise on. For example, when I go on a date, the gentleman should always be well mannered and intelligent (handsome goes without saying!) Anything less guarantees they won’t be hearing from me again. Another thing that I have high expectations for: mascara. My mascara must not clump, must not irritate my eyes or contacts, and must not smudge even during a workout (yes, I wear makeup when I go to the gym). Should a mascara not meet all of these requirements, it immediately goes into the trash, or back to the store!
Enter d.j.v. beautenizer’s Fiberwig LX. Many of the ladies here at weheartthis loved the original Fiberwig. Like it’s predecessor, Fiberwig LX still promises to give you extra long, natural looking lashes, with no smudging or clumping, and claims it will easily come off with water. The main difference between the two is the redesigned brush, which is now curved, allowing you to easily brush on more fiber.
I thought to myself, “Well, well, Fiberwig LX. Finally a worthy suitor for my lashes!” and gave it a spin. I pulled out the wand and inspected the brush, which was covered in tiny little fibers (as you can see above). I applied one coat first, attempting to deposit as many fibers as possible by using the concave side of the curved brush, and using the wand vertically to get the lashes in the inner and outer corners. My upper lashes looked slightly longer and glossier, but my lower lashes looked really good. It’s hard to find a mascara that isn’t a globby mess on my lower lashes, but Fiberwig LX does a great job of making them stand out in a good way (as seen in the top pic)!
So I threw on a few more coats for good measure, and was pretty satisfied. Although Fiberwig LX didn’t add any volume, it did meet my three most important criteria: it didn’t clump, didn’t irritate my eyes, and it didn’t smudge. I even spent an hour and a half sweating at the gym, and Fiberwig LX prevailed.
When I attempted to remove it with warm water, it did come off with some gentle rubbing and a bit of patience. Fiberwig LX comes off in clumps rather than dissolving like most mascaras.
Fiberwig LX is definitely worth giving a try if you suffer from smudging, clumping, or difficult to remove mascaras.[ratings]
