L’Oreal – the brand that aces mascaras like no other – have launched a new and updated version of their Superstar Original mascara (which I really hated) called the False Lash X-Fiber Mascara. At £8.99 and coming in both waterproof and non-waterproof it’s a good middle of the range option!
L’Oréal Paris False Lash X-Fiber Mascara is a two-step formula that works to volumise and lengthen lashes. The first step, the primer, has been formulated to volumise lashes by thickening each lash from root to tip, while the second step is adding the formula that contains fibres, which work to lengthen lashes to mimic a false lash look.
Sounds good right? Normally these two step mascaras have a white primer, that makes your lashes look just a little odd, and then a mascara that doesn’t seem to pair well with the primer. In fact, I normally see a two step mascara and run.. fast. But, I thought I would give this a go.
The black primer gives a great base, its hourglass shape really helps to add volume to the base of the lashes. And then the actual mascara, with a slightly curved wand is perfect for lengthening, definition and a subtle curl. Both sides have rich pigment and are super easy to use, as neither brush is excessively large.
This mascara actually makes your lashes look amazing! A little bit of everything – length, definition and volume – and doesn’t clump. I wouldn’t quite say they look completely identical to wearing falsies… but it’s pretty damn close.
Obviously having a two-step system requires more time than your average one-step mascara. But, worth it. I think this mascara is such a steal, and I have no doubt I will continue to use this mascara for many months (maybe years) to come.
Have you tried this? If so, what are your thoughts?

I’m glad you like it… have you tried lash paradise? If so how did you like it?
And how would you compare the two? I wasn’t a fan of lash paradise
I loved the lash paradise, but it could be a little messy and so I would have to really focus 😛 and it could go a little clumpy
when comparing the two, this is less clumpy and the wands are smaller and so a little easier to use. However, the overall effect is not that dissimilar. Does that help?
Yup 🙂 the comparison between it and better than sex I didn’t get.,, I love better than sex and paradise was just good for me I found it very frusterating
Huh. I’m conflicted now. This was going t be a hard pass foe me cause I really hated the other one they had with the white primer on it. But your review might just have twisted my arm!
Did you go for the waterproof or regular? Any smudging??
It’s a black primer, which kind of makes it like layering two mascaras 🙂
I got waterproof, and it doesn’t smudge, but it also takes a little more effort than the average mascara to remove… but I guess that’s normal with waterproof mascaras.
Oh I’m used to the waterproof mascara’s & removal of same so that doesn’t bother me! I think I’m gonna have to give this one a whirl. For the price it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t work out!
I liked the original of this but I never reached for it just because of that extra step!
I haven’t tried this mascara but I have the other one and I don’t mind it. This one looks really cool, do you know what the difference is between this mascara and the old one? xxx
I have to say I never actually used the old one. Sorry x
It’s ok don’t worry xx
