If you’ve ever excitedly swiped on a mascara only to be completely disappointed by the wimpy thinness of the formula, allow me to introduce you the wide, beautiful world of fiber mascaras.
Fiber mascaras are little tubes of pure joy that are filled with silk, nylon, or rayon fibers that literally stick to your lashes to temporarily bulk them up. And, unlike falsies, fiber mascaras look completely natural—like you really were born with it.
So to get your flex on, check out the five top-rated formulas, ahead, and get ready to live your best-ever lash life.
Mia Adora 3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Mia Adora
Alright, so a three-step system just for your lashes might seem a little extra, but not according to the 5,000 people (seriously) on Amazon who gave this mascara glowing reviews. Just swipe on the black thickening gel, brush on the dry microfibers, then seal it all in with another coat of gel.
Eyeko Rock Out and Lash Out Mascara
This jet-black formula is filled with a mix of thickening fibers and cellulose powder, which work together to give you majorly thick-looking lashes. The packaging is kind of genius, too: Just squish the tube and swish the curved spoolie back and forth to pick up every last bit of formula, long before it ever dries out.
L’Oréal Voluminous X Fiber Mascara
What’s it called when a cliche is actually true? Because this mascara really, truly does it all. The dual-ended formula has a mascara-level primer on one end, and a fiber-filled mascara on the other end, so you can quickly flip back and forth to build major volume.
Dior Diorshow Lash-Extension Effect Volume Mascara
If you’re a little skeptical about the whole fiber thing, try this cult-favorite mascara, which has just a small dose of itty-bitty microfibers that cling to your lashes in a natural, subtle way. And, thanks to the mascara’s fat spoolie that’s dense with bristles, you’ll get voluminous, clump-free lashes every time.
Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base
If you’re already in love with your mascara and can’t imagine swapping it for a new one, try this primer, instead. It pre-loads your lashes with a thick coat of microfibers, so you can layer on your usual mascara right afterward for a hella-voluminous, amped-up finish.
