It seems like the quest for longer, lusher lashes is a constant one, no?  It seems we’re always on the hunt for the mascara that will give us a “false eyelash” look–without actually having to use false eyelashes!  Too Faced has released Better Than False Eyelashes–a nylon lash extension system that does exactly that!  Read on for more…

The Too Faced Better Than False Eyelashes Nylon Extension System is a two-product, three step system that gives you the benefits of lash extensions without the hassle.  In addition to the primer mascara, there is a tube of nylon lash fibers that are brushed onto the eyelashes, adding measurable length.

So that you can compare my results, here are my “before” lashes (nothing to write home about!).

Step 1, Prime: Use 1-2 coats of the Activating Mascara Base and Top Coat to create a base to adhere the weightless, FlexistretchTM nylon fibers.


Step 2, Build: Brush on 1-2 coats of the FlexistretchTM Nylon Fibers to build outrageous length and volume. Focus the fibers where you want extra length or volume.


Step 3, Seal: Finish by sealing the FlexistretchTM Nylon Fibers with 1-2 coats of the ultra-black Activating Mascara to create that “better than false lashes” effect. This final coat surrounds each nylon- coated lash, then melts and stretches the FlexistrechTM fibers into long, thick, dramatic lashes.


Final Better Than False Eyelashes look.  Dramatic difference!

I think the photos speak for themselves.  Using  Too Faced Better Than False Eyelashes Nylon Lash Extension System definitely gave my eyelashes a longer appearance.  Using the system was easy, although it did take a few times before I got the results I wanted.  I also found using the MAC 205 Mascara Fan Brush (part of the Pro line) helpful for separating the lashes between steps. Removal is easy–I just used my regular makeup remover wipes without any problems.

Too Faced Better Than False Eyelashes Nylon Lash Extension System retails at $35 and is available exclusively at  Is this something that you would try for longer eyelashes?
