Achieving thick lashes is a difficult art. Many mascaras promise to give the effect of false eyelashes, but few come close.
The Instant Lash Transplant Volumising Kit by Mirenesse gives amazingly long and thick lashes. It is a little different from regular mascaras, but just as easy to use. The 'kit' comprises of a double-sided mascara tool. The instructions show a small brush; this did not come with my kit but I managed fine without it.
Step one is applying the transplanting gel, which is brushed through the lashes with the supplied mascara wand. Step two is application of dark silky fibres, which adhere to the gel. Each fibre is a few millimetres long, and the combined effect is to fill out the lashes. A second quick sweep of the transplanting gel will set the product.
The process takes the same amount of time as applying several layers of mascara, but with a much more pronounced result. Best of all, it is impossible to smudge. The transplanting gel is easily wiped off the skin, while the fibres do not stick to the skin at all. While the final look closely resembles that of false lashes, it is so much easier to apply and looks more natural.
Less is more when it comes to applying the fibres. A light coating gives the look of naturally full and long lashes. Applying more layers creates a dramatic look, but becomes slightly clumpy. Presumably this is where the brush comes into play; unfortunately this brush was nowhere to be seen in my kit.
The Instant Lash Transplant Volumising Kit is available from the Mirenesse website for RRP $69.95, and is half-price for VIP members.
