illummi | Fibre Lash Mascara

It's no secret that my eyes are my babies. If I could only have one product for the rest of my life, it would 100% be mascara. I pride myself on my eyelashes. So when illummi offered to send me their fibre lash mascara to try, of course I jumped at the chance. I had previously tried the ever famous Younique fibre lash mascara and was surprisingly impressed with it.

The first thing I really noticed about this product is the packaging. I love the fact that it has 'mascara' and 'fibres' really obviously written on the tubes because that was an issue with the Younique one. It is quite easy to work out which is which, but its a huge help. 

For newbies trying any kind of fibres on the eyes, you have to be very careful. It definitely takes practice, especially if you haven't used it before. Even for experienced fibre lash users, a brush too heavy could make or break your eye makeup! 

first - nothing, second- 1 coat of normal mascara, third- 2 coats & fourth- 3 coats

Of course I would pick a bad eyelash day ALONG with the worse eye to show this mascara. The pictures don't do it justice! If your like me and a love the look of stupidly full and thick eyelashes, fibres are perfect. I know a lot of people don't like this look and thats completely fine.

The product is really easy to use, you don't even need to use the instructions! A layer of mascara, a layer of fibres and another layer of mascara to lock in the fibres. You can clearly see a huge difference from using this product but I wish I could have taken the pictures on a better lash day. It's personal preference as to how much you would use; you could do one layer or you could do 10. It's down to what you like and what you want your lashes to look like.

Is it worth the price? Probably not for me. However, I will just point out that is because I don't generally spend anything over £5 on a mascara, I just refuse. I am the biggest cheapskate going and always get the cheapest ones possible!

Will I use it again? Yes, 100%.  I really enjoyed it and loved how very easy it was to use. Maybe next time I'll use it on a better lash day, ha ha ha.

Have you ever tried fibre lash mascaras? What did you think?

*this was sent for review purposes but all opinions are 100% my own


  1. Your lashes look amazing! I'm the exact same, if I could only have one product it would be mascara for sure!

    Sammy xo.

  2. You have such pretty eyes and always do amazing eye make-up. Do I spy that new melon pigment from Mac?;)

    Lots of Love,


  3. Your bad eyelash day is still pretty damn good! This looks so good, but I just don't think I would spend £30 on it either!
