I never review anything because basically I am not a makeup gal.
However, this product is AMAZING!!!
As I've gotten older my lashes (never long or full to begin with) have become sparse, and much lighter. This product (in combination with Latisse) gives me drop dead gorgeous lashes. Even my husband well known in the family for NOT noticing noticed!!! This is my very first HG m/u product!!!

Check out my review here.

It really works! It lengthens, it volumizes, it darkens. Works well with any mascara. Put your mascara first, then put his, and put another layer of mascara. The fibers that fall on your cheeks can be easily removed with a brush. Get the effect of false eyelashes without actually wearing falsies. Great innovation!

OK LADYS!! HERE IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH! If you use this product correctly you will be amazed. I have people all the time asking if I wear false eyelashes, my lashes are sparce and puney. I have low thyroid so they fall out and grow back short . I have always had small lashes. DONT buy this product if your not going to take some time with it, its new for you and it is not like mascara, you have to work it.
This FLIPPEN WORKED!! After I used this product for about 6 months, I purchased RAPID LASH, I swear to you my lashes are hitting my brows, and with the Ready to Wear product, it is so beautiful. I like my eyes, now, I feel youthful and pretty. Keep in mind Rapid Lash ( got it at CVS) is a bit pricy, and it took about 3 -4 weeks before I said OMG those are my lashes,
MAKE SURE YOUR EYELASHES ARE CLEAN......
1. Use WATER PROOF mascara (yes i know hard to remove, use oil base make up remover, this is the only way your eyelashes will hold the curl) Hopefully your curling, not bending your eyelashes.
2. DO NOT put your foundation on first, you can use conceler, I do..
3. Use a HEATED eye lash curler, not bender CVS has a little eyelash heater that CURLS those puney lashes, you have to TAKE YOUR TIME to achieve the nice curl, then you use your regular eyelash bender (curler) on the very root just quickly to give it some umph!!
4. Once you have prepred your eyelashes, and make sure your LASHES ARE CLEAN!!
5. Use water proof mascara I use the yellow lash blast I think by cover girl it is the fat round one, WATER PROOF.
6. Wipe the mascara brush so it is not to thick full of mascara, then coat your eyelashs, very very important, from root to tip, just coat once or twice you dont want your lashes to clump, try one slow stroke from root to end get every lash,
7. use the ready to wear, same from root to end, but dont clean brush, just apply from root to end.
8. Masara again, make sure the mascara brush is not full and clumppy with mascara, then appy same way.
9. if you dont see a drastic differnce do the same thing again... IF YOUR NOT SEEING A DIFFERNCE, YOU ARE APPLYING THE PRODUCT WRONG.... AND REMEMBER IF YOU DONT USE WATER PROOF MASCARA YOUR EYELASHES WILL NOT, NOT , NOT STAY CURLED. Beauty takes time, its worth it, THIS PRODUCT HAS CHANGED MY LOOK , SO MANY PEOPLE ASK ME DO YOU HAVE FALSE EYELASHES ON, NEVER IN MY LIFE HAS ANYONE ASKED THAT, AND THEY LOOK NATUAL
10. clean the little fibers off your face, use a warm wet wash cloth. make sure to give your lashes one last coat, so no more hairs fly,
11. apply your foundation and off you go..

Ehhh....well I bought this based on the reviews here. I thought it would work wonders but unfortunately it doesn't really do much for me! Naturally, my lashes aren't super long or thick, they are just average. But they are really dark, maybe that has something to do with not being able to tell much of a difference with this. It definitely is messy when applying it though that is for sure! I really don't think I would repurchase unless they was a big sale on them.

I am, personally, a fan of these lash extensions. I have used the Talika ones in the past and was not impressed, so I was reluctant to try these. Let me start by comparing the two. The Talika fibers are larger, darker, and more coarse, while the Ready to Wear extensions are finer, shorter, and much softer. This alone makes the RTW extensions much easier to use. When I would use the Talika extensions, I would have fall-out onto my cheeks throughout the whole day and people would constantly be telling me that I had hairs on my face. Not a good look! So far, I haven't had that problem with the RTW. You are meant to sandwhich the fibers in between 2 or more coats of mascara. For contact wearers, try closing the eye slightly before putting the fibers over your first coat of mascara. This should help minimize the amount of fibers that might fall into your eyes. However, I haven't experienced discomfort with fibers in the eye with the RTW (I did experience this with Talika). These do give my lashes a longer, fake lash look. If you are more of a natural mascara girl and do not like the fake lash look, you will NOT like the effect that these fibers give. With that said, they do take a little bit of manipulation to make sure they are applied evenly and unclumpy. If you are willing to work with them, then they will give you fuller, longer lashes. However, as others have mentioned in previous reviews, I'm sure there are primers out there that give a similar effect for much less work. Me... I'm a little bit ridiculous and love lashes, so I use primer AND the extensions! but both in moderation. In the end, I would say these are worth a try.

I would go to almost all lengths to get longer and thicker lashes. But this product was not for me. People say you can just brush off the fibers with a brush off your face but seems like there are always enough left that people can see them. Worse if they get on your after makeup because then they stick even more to foundation so do your lashes before foundation. In order to get dramatic difference I need to do a couple coats but then my lashes just get clumped together, it just looks dark, but not a good dark and dramatic, the lashes aren't seperated individually nicely. Its heavy for me kinda weighs down my lashes. And the fibers get in my eyes. Sometimes it gets thicker one area over another so then you have to go back over the area even though it looked the same a second earlier. Then it just cakes. I don't know, it's a lot of work for a result that's not that pretty on me. And like I said, I am one to go to all lengths to help my puney lashes.

I think this was a case of unrealistic expectations on my part.
I already have decently long, thick dark lashes, but I've always wanted SPECTACULAR!
So, when I had a little extra money, I decided to give this a try.
It's really not a *bad* product; it just didn't do anything for my lashes that MAC Prep + Prime Lash doesn't, and is way more expensive and trickier to apply.
Also, I wear soft contact lenses, and it hurt pretty badly when one of the fibers got into my eye.
No real harm was done, but it didn't leave me enthusiastic about the product.
I expect to just stay with Prep + Prime in the future.
UPDATE: I *think* I've made peace with this stuff.
What I've been doing is inserting the wand of whatever lash primer I'm using (either MAC Prep + Prime or UD's Eyelash Primer Potion) into the bottle of Lash Extensions to coat the primer brush with fibers. Then I tap the brush, just in case. Then I apply primer, and immediately sweep on my mascara. When I use this technique, I don't get any fibers in my eyes.
I'm still not convinced that Lash Extensions really does anything that a good primer won't, but I'll at least use up this bottle. It's still probably not a re-purchase.

Ladies and adventurous gentlemen....
this product is a god send!! I Looove this shit! it's amazing seriously it works!! you can even use it as your everyday- it doesn't take long!!
you do need a good mascara to coat it though....
I've tried a few and none work as good as max factor false lash effect!!! (because its really wet and has good seperation)
apply a coat of mascara on one eye both back and front, try to get good seperation.... then apply your ready to wear (RTW) both back and front (tip: look over a mirror and the fibers don't end up an your face) then seal with another coat of mascara, brushing out any excess...........- for an extra umph add another coat of mascara and 'whala' .....perfect long lashes.
when I'm on a night out I repeat this over whatever mascara I was wearing that day.... and it adds extra fullness an length!!
girlie, guys whoever!!! this is a winner

If you are looking to add ridiculous length and some good volume to your lashes you will love this product.
However, in order for the little cellulose fibers to adhere to your lashes properly you have to use a very wet mascara, like L'oreal Voluminous or CoverGirl Lash Blast, this is a major problem for me. My lashes are super straight, I have to heat my curler and use only waterproof mascara, which dries very quickly, in order to keep that curl in my lashes that I love. If you use a waterproof mascara or one that dries quickly you really won't get any length from this product that you wouldn't get from a couple more coats of mascara.
I used this product with both L'oreal Voluminous and Lash blast and the length was ridicoulous. I loved it , but no one will be able to look at your amazing lengthy lashes if their dropping straight down.
I've played around with this product for a while now. The first time I used it , I applied it as I normally would my mascara, with my eyes open, and got a good amount of fibers in my eye. It stung and it felt like it took forever until they finally came out with my tears. So apply your wet mascara, close your eye, and then apply the RTW , not close to your lash line. Also you have to curl your lashes before you apply this.
As other reviewers have said, there is a large amount of fallout, both on your cheeks and lid, which means a lot of the product that you just shelled out more than $20.00 bucks for isn't going to end up on your lashes. It is very easy to sweep off with a powder brush though.
So if your not looking for curl but only for length and volume , I would give this product a shot. It just didn't workout for what I was looking for :( and that makes me pretty sad.

Love it! I now have lashes! It does exactly what it says it will. You will have long thick lashes. The little fiber fall out is a bit annoying, but totally worth dealing with.

I'm a total beleiver. Ready to Wear lash extensions is the best. When I got it reminded me of Longicils Lash Extensions in the bottle. I thought it would be the same. But it wasnt. It wasnt messy for me use. I know a lot of people say they have issues with fibers falling but I didnt have that problem. I love the lush, long full look I have after using RTW. It's definitely worth the purchase.

I have very short thin eyelashes that are neither curly nor straight. I've gotten amazing results with this product. My eyelashes are thicker, longer and almost look false. Sure it can be a little bit messy but a clean sweep with a cosmetic brush and voila! You're good to go! I ordered two bottles of this goodness just as an impulse buy and thankfully will be purchasing many more in the future....really hope this product never gets discontinued. Its a bit on the pricy side but worth every penny...I use it on a daily basis before going to work. My new love!!! Try it out for yourself!!

I am a beauty product junkie and this is the most genius product I have ever come across. It is a miracle to me. After spending enormous amounts of $$ on mascaras, extensions, lash growing formulas, etc., I have now found the cure. I feel like this is gold to me. It is convenient, easy, and gorgeous. If there is any bad review on this product it is because they are applying it incorrectly OR their mascara is cheap. This works differently with different mascaras. It works beautifully with lancome Definicils. I tried it with others such as Clinique, and did not get as good a result, although I still noticed a difference. All my coworkers are amazed by my lashes and are now ordering some for themselves. My tips are : Use a primer first, then apply your mascara, gently pull out the ready to wear wand and carefully apply the fibers over a mirror, apply coat #2 of your mascara and Voila', a miracle has been born. I was so happy when I looked in the mirror after applying this that I actually danced around my bathroom with giddy excitement. Don't wait another day, order this stuff and your eyes will love you. It really is a wonderful product!

Ok, so this is a bit of a premature review as today is the first day I'm trying this out and I will update this in a few days with more info.
My lash problem is the following: I naturally have long lashes BUT I don't have a lot of them. I've always dreamed of having beautiful dense eyelashes. (I'd almost be willing to give up length for density/volume!) So, I bought this on a whim after I read about it here and I applied it this morning for the first time and I was so pleasantly surprised to see that it did in fact add volume to my scarce lashes. You have to be quick to apply it, though or else it'll clum a bit, so if I were you I'd have both your mascara and Lash Extensions bottles open and ready to go so you can do it quickly. I did a better job on my right eye than my left (but this is the case with almost anything I do to my eyes), but when I had finished my right eye and I looked in the mirror I thought: "Wow. What a difference". I'm sure after I get a better hang of it, my left eye will look equally good. Also: DON"T WORRY ABOUT THE LITTLE BLACK FIBERS THAT MAY FALL ON YOUR FACE. THEY COME RIGHT OFF. They're DRY so they don't stick to anything.
I will certainly update this review after I've worn this all day to see if has lasting power. But for now I can say that if you want volume, this will give it to you.
Update: Wore this to the gym and it stayed put! Some teeny tiny residue (and I mean MINIMAL) fell on my face just below my eyes, but I wiped it away easily. Don't think anyone would have even noticed it because it was very very minimal. So, it passed the full day PLUS workout test!

I have very thin, spare, short lashes. This product gave me moderate improvement, but what a mess during the application! Having read the warnings about fibers landing everywhere, I was very careful in application. But still the dark fibers landed on my eyelids, so I had to do my eye shadow again. I am going to experiment with doing mascara first, then shadow, then liner. But I'm not sure I'd buy this again (including paying expensive S&H).

Made this product a part of my daily routine. Truly a foolproof way to extend my lashes without the glue. Takes a bit of time to get used to applying but once you get the hang of it, you cant go wrong.

First of all, this stuff gets EVERYWHERE from the moment you pull the applicator out of the bottle, on your hands, on your eyes, cheeks, makeup table, everywhere! The container for it was a horrible choice because when you pull out the applicator all the product goes flying all over the place. If you get this in your eye, it will hurt like a bitch and will also be hard to get out cause the fibers are so tiny and numerous.
After trying and failing the first few times, I now really like this stuff. It does what it claims, lengthens like crazy and thickens but you have to use a mascara that doesn't dry out fast or else it doesn't work as well. I tried using kiss me tube mascara but it didn't work well with that, it also didn't work with almay nourishing waterproof mascara. I got success with Maybelline XXL Volume (it's the double ended one with primer) and I'm gonna buy Great Lash to try it with as well.
DO NOT use a heated curler after you put this stuff on because it will melt away your mascara and whisk off all of the fibers with it.

Well, I purchased this product based solely on the good reviews here at MUA and it did not disappoint! I've only used it once, but it did exactly what it was supposed to...make my eyelashes look way long and lush! It was easy to apply (use your mascara first, then brush on the Ready To Wear Extensions, then apply your mascara again) and took about 2 minutes from start to finish. One thing to note; as other posters have advised, there will be fallout fibers on your face (mostly under your eye area). They are teensy and hard to notice, but sweep a Q-tip over the area anyway to get them off or they could get into your eyes. Good stuff!!

Okay, so I read on the boards about this Ready to Wear Lash Extensions. Since I entered my late forties, my lashes have gotten very sparse and stubby. Let's not even talk about the dollars I have spent and the wands of half used mascara I have piled up, all in hopes that I'll find something that will give me lashes. And I've done the fake eyelash thing (individual and strip) as well. So the reviews are mixed---people either love it or hate it. But I figure, what the hey...so I order it and it arrived three days ago. Well, I don't regret the $20+ I spent on it. The instructions could be better. Like, I ran to Wal-Mart and bought some cheap waterproof mascara that stays moist a little longer so I can apply the RTW LE per instructions. And, as people complained and the instructions warn, I end up with a dusting of tiny black fibers under my eyes. But a long time ago a make-up artist told me the last thing I should put on is my foundation, to correct mistakes. So with the RTW LE, I finish up with a sealing coat of mascara, then I give a quick swipe with a clean powder brush and then apply my foundation. It's not that big of a deal. RTW LE lasts pretty much all day, and trust me, with my dry skin, I am moisturized to the max, so I wouldn't be surprised if it wore off. No, it doesn't give me the outrageously long lashes I got with the fakies---this kind of looks natural. I notice if I do two coats, my lashes get way thicker and maybe a smidge longer, but I'm not really going for the Betty Boop look. (Google that, you teenagers!) So yeah, I highly recommend this for those who really want to visibly enhance their lashes, but pay attention to what everyone has posted:
1) DO apply a coating of mascara first
2) DO apply RTW LE immediately after the mascara
3) DO seal RTW LE with another coating of mascara
4) If you want to make your lashes even bigger and longer, just keep applying LE and mascara, but try not to go overboard
