EYE CANDY 3-in-1 MEGA LASH FIBRE MASCARA


I was so excited to receive my first ever fibre mascara and to give it a try. Despite loving beauty and having tried many different mascaras over years, I had never given in to trying a fibre mascara. 

A fibre mascara is pretty much what it says on the tin. Tiny fibres are added to the mascara formulation, which stick themselves onto the hairs of your natural lashes. These add volume, depth and texture to your lashes; giving you that fake lash look without the need for fake lashes and glue.


I decided to give the Eye Candy 3-in-1 Mega Lash Fibre Mascara a try and upon my first use of it, I wasn't sure. If you follow me on Snapchat (you can add my username ashleighlilyd), you may remember me telling you guys my thoughts on it back then.

The formulation for starters is quite try compared to what a normal mascara would have. The brush is also incredibly big compared to most wands. With these negative first impressions, I found it quite difficult to like it upon my first application. However, I did note that it may be the perfect mascara of the gym and those "no makeup days".


Due to the brush being a lot larger than normal, I find that the formulation transfers onto my lid just above the lash line. A perfect example is above as you can see where it transferred slightly on one eye and can really see the size of the brush in comparison to the size of my eyes.

However, I tried what I intended to try it for and have been wearing it to the gym. I am not someone who plasters on a full face of makeup, just to go and sweat it off. However, I do like to make sure my eyebrows are brushed and filled in and I like to apply a little concealer under my eyes and mascara to finish. Everyone has their personal preference and that is mine.


I have found it works much more nicely as a mascara for the gym and no makeup days or days where you don't fancy applying too much eye makeup. The fibres do 'attach' themselves onto my own lashes and I quite like the effect that it creates. My eyes look a lot more awake and fresh.

However, I found this mascara is the worst for applying to the bottom lashes. I don't ever apply mascara to my bottom lashes when going to the gym, but other times I have tried it, it transfers to my under eye area. Therefore, I don't use it for my bottom lashes anymore. 


This mascara retails for £19.99 at Boots, but in all honesty, I wouldn't purchase it again (*pr sample). The fibre effect is nice, but many drug street beauty retailers now have their own versions which are much cheaper, so I would be intrigued to try those in the future. 

I am interested in the brand though as they also do a fab range of different eyelashes. If you follow me on Instagram (instagram.com/ashllyd), you may have seen my selfie a couple of weeks ago...


I wore the lash style 007 and they lasted all night without having to apply any more glue. Always a plus in my eyes as a near enough everyday lash wearer! 


I'm definitely keen on trying more of Eye Candy's lash styles! They are available at Tesco for £4.99.

  1. The brush for the fibre mascara really is huge! I'm not sure that I would like using that either and I'm not sure how keen I would be on the fibre mascaras themselves. It's good that you are able to use it for your gym days though.

  2. That brush does look big I don't think I'd like using it. Ive never tried fibre mascaras before so not sure how I'd feel about the dryer formulation.

  3. OK they do make your eyes look amazing! Sadly I've never found a fibre mascara I'm not horribly allergic to yet

  4. I would like to try the lashes too but I am on the fence about the mascara, especially when my fave is around the same price but better on bottom lashes x

  5. This is a really honest review and even though the price is a little high, I would like to give this a go on my top lashes to see if it works for me :) x

  7. I'm not sure if I'd try this mascara. The brush does look huge, but your lashes look great!

  8. The mascara looks great on your lashes. Even with the big brush it does do a great job. I am used to big brushes as some of my Too Faced mascaras have them as well and I find them easy to use and they cover much better from the first application.

  9. The brush looks huge, and looks great on - the price for what it does definitely puts me off a bit though.

  11. I've never tried fibre mascara but I've seen so many posts about it! It's quite pricey compared to my usual mascara choice. That wand does look huge though!

  12. I actually love the way that the fibre lash mascara looks on your eyes although I do agree that its pricey when theres cheaper alternatives out there xxx

  13. Your lashes look so good! I love how natural looking this one is. So many fiber lash formulas I see look super clumpy, but this is great.

  14. One of my pet peeves is when the mascara transfers onto the lids! Your eyelashes look so nice!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow! Your eyes! This is amazing I have always been hesitant because of the clumpy factor...

  16. The way you used it looks great, shame about the brush size. You have such lovely eyes I think almost any mascara would work on you!

  17. Oh doesn't it go on so well! You look absolutely beautiful :)

  18. It can be hard to find a good mascara, but when you find something as magical as this eye candy one, yo must keep a rebuy forever and ever.

  19. Finding the perfect mascara has always been a challenge for me. With this one it's hard to get past the brush size. But if it makes lashes look as pretty as yours .. I think I'm sold!

  20. The mascara looks really good! I don't usually wear eyelashes as I struggle putting them on and if I do manage to, I look silly
