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.
