That is probably the longest name for a mascara.
Anywhoo, staying on top of the mascara trend I have going on right now, I wanted to do a quick first impression of the new mascara that Physician’s Formula has out. It is supposed to be a lash extension mascara that gives great lengths without having to use falsies. I have not tried this yet, but I have opened the packaging and I wanted to review this from what I saw.
I first saw this on a Canadian program when I was at work doing a related social media type post. This product was a part of the program and I was instantly sold. It has the same technique that the 3D Younique mascara has where you apply the mascara and then the fibres afterwards then adding a following coating to seal the fibres. The only difference with this is that I trust Physician’s Formula a little bit more than Younique. I have had some horrible experiences with that company and if you like, you can read all about it here.
The extension kit has two components to it, one being the actual mascara and the other being the extensions (fibres). It comes in a red and clear type packaging that I find to be very sleek and outstanding. The brush of the mascara is curved and just by looking it, I can tell it is a bit dryer than other mascaras out there. Now, this is where it starts to become a problem. My main concern with Younique was that the fibres were constantly getting in my eyes and causing them to become irritated, so I gave up on it. With Physician’s Formula, I knew they were hypo-allergenic, paraben free, dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, so I knew there was no way that these fibres were getting in my eyes when using this. I think the picture below will speak for itself:
In the picture, you will see particles in front of the extensions bottle and that is all the fibres that are supposed to go on your lashes. This makes me extremely nervous to even apply them to mine because if there is that much coming out from me just opening up the bottle, who knows how many will end up in my eyes.
This mascara is a lot cheaper than Younique, coming in at $14 CAD, but I don’t really know if that price even makes a difference. I haven’t tried it and who knows if I will, but to me, it doesn’t matter how much these extension kits cost, fibres are irritating.
I found my perfect mascara, but please let me know if there is a special way of applying this!
