Mini Review: ModelCo FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara

Helloooooo again beauties!! Last month I told everyone I was so eager to test out this FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara by ModelCo.

I received it in my November Birchbox and it's retailed at $24.
This mascara has little fibres within the formula that grasp onto your eyelashes, creating a lengthened look. Let's see what I think of this product!
The left eyelashes are coated with the LashXTEND mascara, while the right eyelash has no mascara and was just curled with an eyelash curler. You can see that is is lengthened for sure, but is it a OMG status? Let's compare it to a $3 drugstore mascara.
The right eyelashes are coated with a mineralizing mascara from e.l.f. which costs 3 bucks. If I didn't know which was which, I'd think the eyelashes are the right had the expensive mascara on them.

THE LOW DOWN: The ModelCo Fibre LASHXTEND mascara is a nice idea, but it just doesn't live up to the hype. #1 problem with this mascara: FIBRE FALLOUT! Within half an hour of applying this mascara I always notice fibre fallout on my face, which looks like little hairs on your face. Not very attractive. Problem #2: It's not buildable! The mascara starts drying while you are still applying it. If you try to keep adding more, the fibres will start getting tangled and it starts looking like a hot hairy mess. For these reasons alone, I have to give this mascara a THUMBS DOWN. The e.l.f. mascara trumps over the ModelCo mascara in every way. This mascara, in my opinion, is just not worth $24. In fact, if this was $3 I still wouldn't repurchase this.

I hope this review was helpful! Let me know if you have tried any over fibre lengthening mascara, and what was your experience with it?
