Mascara Monday: MAC FibreRich

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope that yall had a wonderful weekend. While the low gas prices should have prompted me to make some travels around Florida, I was too lazy to do so. I opted to spend some time cleaning out my closet, shopping for some shoes and continuing my training for the 5K. Loves it!! I would first like to ‘pologize for the delay on this mascara. Gosh, I was asked to review these decades okay. But I got it for you this time around. Introducing…..

MAC Fibre Rich Mascara

Price: 3 out of 5 ($12.00)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 3 out of 5
Overall: 3.5 out of 5

What it claims: “Fibre-rich. Good for you. Keeps lashes fit. Makes them strong, fat, well-defined. Adds muscle to short and fine lashes. Creams on. Clump proof…Spike-proof! The difference fibre makes is amazing. Add it to your lashes’ diet!”

The truth: *yawn* Oh…uh? What were we talking about? LOL, nah I’m kidding…it’s good.

What I loved about it: Well, it did lengthen.

What I didn’t like: I really couldn’t get down with the wand. That little swirly brush thing was just not working too well for me.

Overall: I’m just going to keep it real in the fied, folx. I know a lot of beauty gurus/enthusiasts love to give MAC Cosmetics crazy props even if the products are so-so. I ain’t one of those people so please…no cyber tomatoes. LOL! I’m just not THAT impressed. Had the brush been a little easier to use, I think I would have liked it more. The clump factor was minimal so that’s always a good thing. I didn’t experience any of those mid-day flakes so props for that! I mean, I did give it 3 out of 5 because I do like the length that it gave me but I know for a fact that there are other lengthening mascaras that can deliever just as good as this baby here and for a cheaper price! Maybelline XXL Extensions being one. Imju Fiberwig being the other (but only if you have some pennies to spare). So is Fibre Rich bad? No. Is Fibre Rich phenomal? No.

Would I recommend it: If you are looking for a good lengthening mascara, then yes. But if you already have one, save your duckies.

….okay, now that I’m lookin’ at these pictures, maybe I didn’t give this mascara a fair review. LOL, they did bring the lashes out there a bit, didn’t they? Ah well…my favorite lengthening mascara will forever and always be Imju Fiberwig.

What’s your favorite? Tell B!

Enjoy your Monday!!!

    i used to own it and wasn’t a big fan of it…

  • Askmewhats

    ohh your lashes are wonderful to start with :) and i love the way you line your eyes :)

  • Miss Anjela

    B, do a tutorial on how to line your eyes like that! I’ve been trying forever to no avail! The MAC did lengthen your lashes though. :)

  • Connie

    I suppose it did lengthen but the lashes look very…. wiggly… Lol

    The only fiber mascara that I really like is called Flamingo mascara. It has a separate tube of fibers that has to be applied in layers. Very troublesome but well worth it! I’ve had a good couple of times when people thought that i was wearing falsies. Sadly the mascara only works on really short lashes because it may weigh down long lashes.

    See? This is why I don't mess with MAc mascara. It it so underwhelming that it just makes me mad! Now Maybelline Full & Soft… That can get my $7 any day of the week lol!

  • *Jen*

    OMG B this gave you amazing length! I may need to check it out for myself–I do love how affordable MAC mascaras are =)

    Happy Columbus Day!

  • rmcandlelight

    I think it looks pretty good. As you say you can find cheaper mascaras that will do the same.

    Oh by the way I was in the West Oaks Mall at the Lancome counter the rep showed me a mascara that they are getting ready to sale its battery operated and the wand vibrates. The cost is $34…ouch

  • Wes

    So you really like that Imju Fiberwig huh? I tried it on in Sephora and wasn’t impressed one bit. I guess the fact that it was a sample IN the store could’ve been why…

  • Product Junkie Diva

    LOL i was saying a 3.5 huh? look how great her lashes
    Looks beautiful!
    Have a great day.

  • B

    Amina–> You too, uh? Booo!

    Nikki–> Thanks so much, doll. These lashes took a ton of work to perfect. LOL, like a year.

    Anjela–> You know what? I just may! Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe I will try and do that this week.

    Connie–> That mascara sounds pretty cool. It definitely sounds like something that I would like to try. Even with all of the trouble. 😉

    Jamila–> Recession Beauty, sister! You knowwww it!!!

    Jen–> You know I would LOVE to see your review. Happy C day to you too. Even though I'm at work.

    rmcandlelight–> Yeahhh, that mascara came out maybe 2 months ago online and it was apparently a HUGE hit. I would love to test it out but I'll be darned if I spend that much money on a mascara. HA!

    Wes–> OMG, you HAVE to try it again. It is a wonderfuuuuul mascara.

    PJD–> LOL, you funny. I know, but it's still just okay to me. Happy Monday to you too, lovely!

  • Traycee

    I agree with one of the comments above — I like the way you line your eyes, too. =)

  • yummy411

  • The Anti Hair Slave

    maybe you should get an eye-lash curler. Your lashes are long & spidery.
