Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber Comparison/Product Review

I have been using the Mezaik Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber since the beginning of April of this year. It is my HG product and something that I probably will continue to use everyday for a long, long time.


I have been purchasing it from iMomoko and also did a swap with another blogger and that was one of the items that I wanted. I also discovered it on another website but they are out of stock and have been for a while. I was going to reorder it from iMomoko because they were having a discount sale but it's no longer on there. GASP! What am I to do!

I discovered a new item on Adam Beauty which looks very similar. It is called AB Mezical Fiber. It is cheaper than the Mezaik and since it's the only thing that I could find, I decided to order one as a trial.


First thing that I noticed was that the AB Mezical is black while the Mezaik is pink. It is also just a wee bit shorter than the Mezaik. I was a little worried that when I stretched it out the fiber might be dark colored as well but it is the same color as the Mezaik, which is clear.


I decided to give it a really good test by applying it last night after washing my face. I was doing that with the Mezaik but stopped (out of laziness) a couple of months ago. I also started using the Bremenn cream on the entire eyelid at night and the stretch fiber will not work using any creams. I applied it in the usual way that I apply the Mezaik.This morning I rinsed my face off as usual, applied my makeup and so far so good.



As you can see from the pictures above, the result is the same as the Mezaik as far as how visible or invisible the stretch fiber is. It looks quite natural.

It is now more than 24 hours since I first applied it and more than 16 hours since I applied my makeup. The AB Mezical Fiber is still working very well. It was a rather humid day today so even with the humidity, which also tends to make my skin more oily, I still haven't experienced any difference in the adherence of the fiber.

Despite my trepidation of using a different brand, I'm glad that I tried this out. It seems to be working the same so I will not have any worries about ordering this brand if I can't find the Mezaik. I know that I could ask my son and/or friends in Japan to buy and send the Mezaik to me but I prefer not to bother them. I also checked iMomoko the other day and they are now stocking the AB Mezical Fiber, although it's slightly cheaper at Adam Beauty.

It looks very natural! I wouldn't know that you're using an Eyelid Stretch Fiber if you didn't mention it =D

I think its great you found brand that works just as good as the one you were using, its very rare (at least for me).
And no worries, if you ever need more I can help you out as the fiber doesn't weigh more than one lb. ;) *shakes fist at Japan Post*

@Blair--Thank you very much! Since I started using the Eyelid Stretch Fiber with it looking so natural, I can't go back to using false eyelash glue unless I'm in a real bind.

@Brianna--I'm glad too and I agree that it's rare to find another product just as good as a HG one. Thank you so much for the offer! I keep on hoping that we'll hear word that the Japan Postal Service has lifted the ban. It's really such an inconvenience.

hi Kat, imomoko also has a 15% off sale lately and I believe the coupon code is XMAS2010 :)

@Anonymous--Thank you! I meant to mention that there's the Christmas sale and it's $.25 cheaper per pack with the discount at iMomoko than it is at Adam Beauty, as long as you purchase enough to get free shipping.

i was actually eyeing the AB Mezical Fiber on sasa, but they're sold out so until next time but it's nice knowing that it's cheaper but works the same =D

galpal.hi said...

@Steph--Keep on checking. It seems to sell out quite quickly at the various places. iMomoko sells it and so does Adam Beauty. I really like the fibers since it looks quite natural, unlike using the tape. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
