Always on a quest to find the perfect mascara I spotted these in a duo set on Cult Beauty a few weeks ago and was intrigued. I googled them and read some varied reviews so I decided to try them for myself.
I got a pretty good deal, both mascaras for £27. Cult Beauty no longer have the duo for sale however you can buy them separately. After this review you may only want one of the two anyway.
I think the simplest way of doing this review is looking at one at a time. So let's take a gander eh?

What they say:
Fibrewig is a hi-tech fusion of brush-on, false-lash filaments & a hypoallergenic, liquid-to-film lash coating that you apply like regular mascara. The glossy formula holds the volumising, lengthening fibres in place for lashes so voluptuous you'll cause a breeze when you blinc. You can literally sleep in it & it won't flake or smudge, but removal is easy, with a quick soak in warm water it just slides off without any rubbing. As long as still wet, you can build up & out as much as you want.
Lets look at the brush seems as this is probably the first thing we do when buying a new mascara.
Fairly basic lengthening style wand, curved to fit your eye shape with fairly short bristles.
What does it do? Lets see!
(I struggled for light it's been a miserable day I can only apologise for how deathly white and washed out I look I was literally squashed against the window)
Curled Lashes with One Coat Applied
I'm not going to beat around the bush, I don't like it! I don't think it does anything special.
My lashes are fairly long naturally although the ends are very fair (no idea why, my hair is nearly black and I'm olive skinned).
I would get the same outcome by curling my lashes and applying any bog standard mascara except unlike this I would be able to let a bog standard mascara dry between coats and build volume too.
Its not that Fiberwig does nothing, you can see little squiggly, thin fibres on the ends of my lashes but I don't think that makes the lashes look longer, they just look a mess.
I feel that mascara is a very personal preference, I don't like it but that doesn't mean you wont. If you are already a lover of Fiberwig and disagree with me then please leave me a comment below. Tell me why you love it and how you use it and I'll give it a try.
