My first experience with a fiber lash extender mascara was about two years ago. Back then, the concept was really in its infancy and it required a three-step process. The end result was amazing, but it was time-consuming, particularly if I made a mistake and needed to start over. But, fiber mascara has come a long, long way! I recently tried Instalash One Step by Lash Factory – an easy, one step process – for longer, thicker, fuller lashes. This mascara instantly defines eyelashes up to 300% in one simple stroke (even those tiny ones at the corners!). You can get the glam look of false eyelashes in just a few seconds.
The secret is the micro-sized green tea fibers, which instantly bind to eyelashes. No longer do you have to apply a primer, a mascara, and then sweep in fibers. This one step process is painless way to have those sexy, long lashes every single day. And best of all, no false eyelash glue is needed!
InstaLash One Step is safe for contact lens wearers and for those with sensitive eyes. It is also flake-free, hypoallergenic and cruelty-free.
How to apply InstaLash One Step Fiber Mascara
To apply, simply use the wand to sweep on the same way you would regular mascara. One swipe is all you need.
I actually got a little overzealous on my first attempt. The result was so good with the first pass that I took another, and then another. But, if you load on too many layers, the mascara won’t be able to dry properly and will clump into extremely unattractive star-like clusters.
Removal of InstaLash Fiber Mascara
InstaLash is water-resistant, but not water proof. So, if you get caught in the rain, you should be safe. But, no swimming unless you’d like to look like Floki from the television series Vikings.
When removing the mascara, I tried several methods. The most successful was fractionated coconut oil, which removed every last trace. The least successful was micellar water, which did not even touch it.
And, although this mascara is natural and safe, when removing, do make sure all of the fibers are completely gone to avoid any potential eye irritation.
InstaLash One-Step 3D Mascara retails for $18.96 on Amazon and comes with a full 30 day money back guarantee.
