The 12 Best Fiber Mascaras for Your Best Lashes Ever

Thicker, fuller, longer.

If you're anything like me, you don't feel like your makeup is complete until you've touched your lashes. Gorgeous, fanned-out, voluminous lashes will never go out of style. These days, we have so many options for getting the lashes of our dreams. Lash extensions, falsies, lash lifts… and the list goes on. But if you want thicker, longer-looking lashes, let me introduce you to an unsung hero of mascaras: A good fiber mascara. If you don't feel like you have the skills, time, or money to invest in intense lash treatments, a fiber mascara is something you can use daily for that faux falsies look.

So, what is fiber mascara? Well, fiber mascara is essentially the same as a “regular” mascara, except the formula is filled with tiny nylon, silk, or rayon fibers that adhere to your lashes to make them look noticeably denser and more voluminous with each swipe. Some other highlights include: less smudging, ingredients that condition lashes, and new technology that might blow your mind. The only downside? Each of these cult-favorite formulas will make you want to take a billion selfies after you wriggle them on. You might as well make space in your camera roll now because you've been warned. Ahead, the 12 fiber mascaras Team MC loves the most.
