The purpose of lengthening mascara is clear and understandable from its name. The constituent element of the carcass are silk or nylon fibers, which make the eyelashes much longer. Such mascara is available in double tubes – the colored side paints the eyelashes, and the white, in the form of a cream, contains fibers that give elongation.

The composition of the mascara should resemble a cream. Too liquid or vice versa, thick mascara, you should not buy – the storage conditions were not observed.

Color is also not an unimportant factor.
