What the product claims:
Model Co claims that by using this you will get a false lash effect without actually wearing fake lashes. It claims to make your lashes thicker and longer by using fibres.
What the product contains:
In the box you get the Extenstions black mascara (which contains 10ml fl oz)
The Lash fibres (which contains 0.02 oz)
How to use the product:
The directions on the back of the box says:
1) Apply one cut of Extensions Mascara to clean lashes, ensuring every lash is coated.
2) Now apply one coat of ModelCo's brush on Lash Fibres.
3) Finish off by applying another generous coat of black extensions mascara, gently moving the brush side to side with each stroke for maximum length and thickness.
My thoughts on the product:
I have to say I did enjoy this product. I loved the concept behind it. But I have to say I didnt notice a huge difference. My lashes did look thicker but not to the extent that I would buy this product again. I would not reccommend this product but in saying that, just because this didnt work for me doesnt say it wont for you. Im just extremely fussy about mascara and I like my lashes to look long and thick. This product made them slightly thicker but did nothing for the length. I think I will stick to my holy grail mascara which is the No7 Extreme Length mascara.

OK so about 11 months ago I started looking for YouTube videos to teach myself how to apply makeup correctly. Ive low self esteem and I thought that maybe learning to apply makeup correctly could help. So one day I came across Samantha Schuerman's channel. Instantly I was stunned by her beauty and how down to earth she was. Also how easy her tutorials were to follow, how she took the the time to show every single product and brush she was using. Also why she was using the products. So now 11 months later I'm still watching her and Ive learnt so much from her, okay I'm not a pro like Sam but I'm getting better everyday and my confidence has improved. But not only has she taking the time out of her busy life to do these helpful beauty videos for her subscribers shes and her lovely husband Jay do daily vlog videos which include their beautiful baby Pheonix who is the cutest baby Ive ever seen!! Oh and not forgetting their dog Moo!! This amazing little family brighten my day up everyday just from watching their videos. They are so funny and so entertaining to watch while they do simple daily tasks. Jay also has his own channel which he answers question in regards to a mans point of view. He is so straight forward and honest with his answers. He has also got a great sense of humour and often has me in stitches laughing!! I know their is so many people on YouTube who do makeup tutorial, vlogs etc but no other channels Ive come across have I seen more genuine down to earth people. I honestly adore them. I never ever miss one single video!! They have become my addiction and I have to get my daily fix! If Sam or Jay are reading this I just want to say that you guys are so amazing!! I love you guys and love your videos. Also I just want to thanks you so much for doing these videos. I know it can be so hard especially when there are so many haters!! Anyway if you haven't all ready check them out their amazing!!!

The first thing I noticed about this product was the packaging, it comes with a pump which I love its so hygienic. The pump dispenses just the right amount of product. When I first tried this primer I pumped some out on the back of my hand. My first thought when touching it was that it felt very oily. I rubbed it on to the back of my hand. It give my hand such a soft velvet feeling and it wasn't greasy at all which I had expected it to be from when I first touched it. The primer itself is a Matt colourless gel. It has no smell.
The company claims that it will fill in fine lines and deep pores in the skin creating a uniform, Matt silky soft surface enabling the easy and smooth application of foundation. I didn't see any difference in the fine lines under my eyes or my pores but however it did make my skin soft which made my foundation go on so much easier. I also found that my makeup stayed in place longer than it usually would. Also I have normal to dry skin which means I get dry patches on my face usually primers don't help with this much and when I apply my foundation my dry patches become really noticeable but with this primer you cant even see them its like they have disappeared. You get 30ml (1.0 fl oz) in the tube for €14.99. It is pretty expensive for a chemist/drugstore primer but I don't mind paying for this as although it doesn't do everything it claims to do it does make my skin feel silky smooth and makes my makeup last longer. Also Ive very sensitive skin and this did not break me out. If you haven't tried this Id recommend that you do.
Quick view of product review:
Whats the company claims:
The company claims that it will fill in fine lines and deep pores in the skin creating a uniform, Matt silky soft surface enabling the easy and smooth application of foundation.
I didn't see any difference in my fine lines or pores however it did make my skin feel silky. It also made the application of my foundation easier it went on smoothly and it helped my makeup last throughout the day without needing to top it up. I would recommend that you try this primer it is a bit pricey for a chemist/drugstore primer but if you want your foundation to apply easier and last all day its the product for you.
Did I breakout or get any skin reactions from this product?
No I didn't which I'm very happy about as I do have very sensitive skin and break out easily.
Thanks for reading and please follow and if you have any suggestions on how I can improve my blog please feel free to comment also If their is something you would like me to review for you :)
