There are very few mascaras that I like out there. They either burn and irritate my eyes, break my lashes and most of all underwhelm my need for fluffy, bushy lashes that I can only seem to get with false lashes.

I am prone to love lash extensions, but 40% of the consumers out there can't or shouldn't wear them and not everyone can apply lash strips or false lashes. What's a gal to do?

Since I used to be a beauty editor at a magazine the PR companies still send products to my attention. Cherry Blooms specifically grabbed my attention because I know how serious Australians are about their beauty....especially their lashes.

I've tried a few of the competitors on the market, but they would either fleck on my face, didn't last through the day or cause major lash loss because the mascara was so difficult to remove or would cause lash breakage.  I used to use the Talika nylon fibers, but they always dropped on my face and I don't seem to have that problem with this brand. I never liked the effect of Fiberwig either or some of the other competitors.

-First of all there is no mascara that lengthens like Cherry Blooms. If you do get greedy and overuse it the mascara will clump up. That's not my personal esthetic, but it's easily resolved with a lash comb before the mascara sets.
 - I like that if I decide not to remove my mascara that it still is soft and buildable the following day (bad habit). 
 -I like that my eyes don't burn.
-They don't raccoon.
-I don't get flecks under my eyes and it seems to last all day.
-The removal is super easy.
- My lashes don't break like they do with conventional mascaras.
- It doesn't require any special skill to apply...maybe just a little practice.
-What I love most is the lack of irritation without sacrificing performance and the simple ingredients: Water, high-grade potent beeswax, carnauba wax, black iron oxide, natural cellulose fibers, stearic acid, natural emulsifying agents.

I have to say Cherry Blooms is worth every penny and when this tester runs out I will be making a new purchase. Well done Cherry Blooms.



How Cherry Blooms Mascara Works (as per the manufacturer)

Cherry Blooms Mascara Fiber Eyelash Extensions are lightweight and just as easy as applying normal mascara. The kit includes two tubes; the transplanting mascara gel and a tube of dry natural cellulose black fibers which stick on the beeswax mascara making it look like you are wearing false eyelashes.
The brush-on fibers are lightweight, adhere to your own lashes and act like instant lash extensions. It dramatically creates 300% longer and thicker lashes within seconds. The fibers easily wash off with warm water and a cotton ball, but can be worn for many days until it is washed off.
Our customers tell us time and time again they will never use anything else on their eyelashes. It’s water resistant so it is cry proof, laugh proof and sweat proof too, and suitable for all ages.
