The answer is yes—and no.
Yes, because a lengthening or extending formula includes the usual ingredients, plus short synthetic fibers. Made of nylon or rayon, these fibers stick to your natural lashes from the root to the tip when applied, helping to make your lashes look longer. The more you apply, the longer your lashes will appear.
No, because there are other options that can do just as well or better than mascara at making lashes appear longer and fuller. For example:
– False lashes are an easy way to add length and volume without clumping up or smudging throughout the day. You can apply them yourself or have a professional do it for you (and we won’t judge either way).
– Waterproof versions of traditional mascaras help prevent smudging even if you’re having an especially emotional day and tears start falling down your face like raindrops in April showers.
Futhermore, most people apply mascara to thicken the lashes and make them appear fuller. Mascara is a cosmetic that can be used to enhance the appearance of eyelashes. It’s most commonly used to darken and thicken the lashes, but it can also be used to lengthen and volumize.
Mascara also helps hide flaws such as redness or blemishes around your eyes, so if you have trouble with those issues, try using a brown or black shade instead of a color like blue or purple.”
“Mascara enhances the eyes in a number of ways. It not only darkens lashes, but can lengthen and volumize for brighter, bigger-looking eyes. Nowadays one of the most popular beauty products is mascara. It’s also one of the oldest, dating back to ancient Egypt. Mascara is made from a mixture of wax, oil, pigment and a binding agent.
Today’s mascaras are usually waterproof and may contain artificial fibers or vegetable fibers for added length and thickness.
