I have been wanting to do a post about makeup for a long time. I'm addicted to make-up; I love it almost as much as I love dresses and horror movies. I'm always on the hunt for new products and subscribe to monthly makeup subscription boxes to deliver my fix. I have tried so many mascaras over the years but I became most comfortable with They're Real! by Benefit. Although I've been happy with They're Real!, I wanted to try a 3D fiber mascara but Benefit does not carry one.
While on Facebook I noticed many friends in my makeup group were buying Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara from a friend and fellow group member. I decided to check out her Facebook group Louise's Lashes and order some to try out myself.
The mascara came in this awesome hard case, it's perfect for just throwing in my purse for makeup on the run. It also came with a pamphlet inside listing instructions on how to use the product. I decided the best way to show my readers the product was to take step-by-step photos.
My naked lashes.
I have very short and stubby lashes.; they need all the help they can get from mascara.
Just a little NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk.
This will help the product pop when I apply it to my lids and lashes.
My left eye with a black liquid liner and my right eye with just the white pencil.
I wanted to show how the 3D mascara looked with and without liquid liner. When I go out I always line my upper lid in black liquid eyeliner. On more casual days I only apply mascara.
Application of the first coat of 3D mascara on my left eye.The instructions suggested using a base coat of my regular mascara for bigger, bolder lashes. I wanted to show you the finished result of just this product so no base coat was used.
Application of the second coat of 3D mascara on the left eye.
This product was fairly easy to apply. You apply a good layer of gel, apply the fibers while the gel is still wet, and then seal with more gel. You can do as many coats as you like but always follow the pattern GEL, FIBERS, GEL.
Application of the first and second coat on my right eye.
I noticed if you pull the fiber wand out of the container and the fibers are loose you can gently roll the wand on the top of your clean hand to compress them back in. I think with a base layer of my regular mascara, and some practice, I could get really big, amazing lashes with this product for a more dramatic look.
A shot of me looking up so you can see just how long my lashes really are. I would say they are as long as any of the falsies I have worn.

I'm really happy with the results I got from this mascara. I think it will take some playing around with to come up with the perfect lash, but I love makeup adventures and I'm up for the challenge. I'm curious how it may work on bottom lashes.
