UPDATE (7/01/08): I've been using Fiberwig for a little over 2 weeks now and I'm still loving the results. Haven't seen any dry out or flakiness that many claim thus far. For now, I'm definitely giving this a 5/5 stars!!!
So I've read and heard different stories about Fiberwig Mascara; some are good, some are bad but most are so and so. I don't know, I'm the type of person who seeing is not enough for believing, I actually have to experienced it in order to believe it. So, I got my very own mascara tube from Sephora. Cost $22, but you there are many websites online that sell it for much cheaper...why I didn't get it online? well, I hate having to wait for the shipping.
Very bad picture, but just bare with me here. Brief intro for those who have never heard of Imju Fiberwig Mascara: Fiberwig is the top-selling mascara in Japan. It is now being sold at many cosmetic retailers including Sephora. I've been to Sephora twice in the past and couldn't get my hands on it cause it was all sold out!!! The big hype about this mascara is it is formulated to create the perfect "false lashes" look with the help of micro-fine interconnecting fibers. These little fibers coats the surface of each lash with "long-lasting, clump-free, lash lengthening color that's resistant to tears, sweat, and oil" (Amazon's description).
Take a look at my before and after pictures:

As you can see it does add dramatic length to my lashes but not volume. It is also very easily to wash off. For now, I'm loving it. Although I've heard that good results only happened at the first several use and after that the mascara would be very dry and all clump up. Hmmm...I guess, I'd soon find out right? LOL
On another note, take a look at Coco's review on Fiberwig if you want to see a difference experience with Fiberwig.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!
