If you're looking for a mascara that'll give you the lashes of your dreams without flaking, smudging or clumping as soon as you break a sweat, a fibre mascara might be just the thing you're looking for.
What’s the secret? Fibre mascaras are essentially the same as “regular” mascaras, except that the formula is filled with tiny nylon, silk or rayon fibres, that adhere to your lashes to make them look noticeably denser and fuller – without damaging your lashes (or leaving them looking like a goopy mess!)
So whether you want a natural everyday look, or dramatic, full lashes for a night out, fibre mascaras are the answer to your mascara prayers.
Below, we’ve rounded up our favourite fibre mascaras to add to your collection. You'll be bidding adieu to traditional mascaras in no time – and your lashes will definitely thank you.
With its dual-ended design, this mascara works as a three-in-one process. Start by applying one coat of the FIRBELASH Brush On False Lashes EXTENSION MASCARA, then immediately apply one coat of MCoBeauty's brush on LASH FIBRES to the ends of your lashes. Finish off with another generous coat of black EXTENSION MASCARA, gently moving the brush from side to side with each stroke.

This weightless, pro-vitamin B5-enriched conditioning mascara contains flexi-polymer fibres that help to create lengthened and defined lashes akin to lash extensions. Plus, the formula is flake and smudge resistant for up to 24 hours after application, and can be built up with two or three coats for a more dramatic finish.

Similarly to MCoBeauty’s best-selling product, the L'Oréal Voluminous X Fiber Mascara also has a dual-ended formula, with a mascara-like primer on one side and a fibre-filled mascara on the other. The supple black primer instantly builds extreme volume and depth on each lash, creating a smooth and even black base to prepare lashes for fibres. The maximum fibre concentration then creates an even more voluminous finish.
