Purple...lace strap things...yeah I am not entirely sure either why L'Oreal have opted for this combination for their latest release, the L'Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar X Fiber Mascara (currently £7.99). Nether the less, it is L'Oreal and I love their mascaras so they can make them as tacky (a.k.a Ann Summer-esque) and I would still buy them. Through in a introductory price of £7.99 and I barely even considered the fact I don't really like double ended mascaras before I headed to the till with this.
This could be a upgraded/newer version of the L’oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara that L'Oreal released a few years ago, but this one contain the 'X Fiber' element and the cleverly thought of black primer. White primers that start to show through your mascara by lunchtime? No I will skip that one, and that thrown in the faff of applying two mascaras in the morning is the reason I steer clear of double ended options.
However L'Oreal have fixed half this issue and offer a volumising black (hurrah!) primer that does indeed thicken the look of each lash and could very well act as a mascara on its own. The second layer of this really does length them out with looking clumpy or like I have stuck fiber bits to my lashes. Both brushes themselves are fairly similar so it must be the formula that separates the two sections into their own, although the second mascara is very just a 'finisher' in my opinion rather than another mascara. Regardless of this, and excuse me while I blow my own trumpet, but my lashes are so long and volumised. Considering the above photos are without any other sort of eye makeup (Monday photo laziness), the finished look of this double ended offering is well worth it. False Lash Superstar X Fiber hasn't given the dreaded spider lashes either, and has given a natural yet 'wow her lashes are long' sort of look.Even I can forgive the tackiness for these lashes.
