My go-to mascara. I have long curly eye lashes to begin with so I'm very happy that this mascara leaves no clumps in my lashes or wispy particles under my eyes. It enhances my eyelashes and does give it a fuller effect. I love the color as well..blackest black!
I Could live Without it :?
Maybelline is one of my FAVORITE drugstore brandsn as well as my go-to mascara brand. When I got my CVS extra bucks, i spent it on this. I was perfectly happy with my Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express, but I thought why not. The product was an overall disappointment. The color was fine, the wand was great, it just wasn't "for me". The only remarkably great thing it did was make my lashes super black. Not longer, not fuller, just black. Overall experience... I'll use it, but I probably won't buy it again.
i don't know if its just a bad tube that i got or what but this mascara is the most clumped that i have used wait, now i cant use it because the lid is glued to the bottle and now i can't use it, it creates such a mess this is not the best nor the worst that i have seen and that is that.
Switching Mascaras is No Longer an Option
I'm always skeptical about mascaras. I love drama; I want big, fat, long, "yes, I'm wearing mascara" lashes without the clumps, the flaking, or the blurring. The holy grail, right? I've tried everything from the weird, wandless mascaras to the much-loved and super expensive Diorshow, but nothing met my absurd stabdards until I borrowed this from a friend and was floored.Yes, Maybelline beats Diorshow, at least in my book! I Immediately ran out to purchase my own tube, possibly that very same day. Easy to do since it's sold in every major drug store! Now, I have dainty, blink-and-you'll-miss-them light brown lashes. One coat of this mascara gives me major length, major volume, and minimal clumping, flaking, etc. Once in a great while I may have to pick out a small clump in the morning, but we do that with all mascaras at some point. Come on. I WILL caution you that you don't want to go crazy layering this stuff. That's when you will get the lashes-glued-together look. Really, one coat is all you need. And remember, that's coming from a woman who likes her lashes loud.
Killer formula, but could use a better scraper.
This mascara doesn't have any of those fancy fibers or those rubber bristles, it's just a simple mascara with a good formula that is really versatile in giving you the look that you want. One coat can give you a defined and natural look, or with a few more swipes you can make your lashes look defined and dramatic. Your lashes probably won't look like false lashes but I still ended up getting compliments on how long my lashes looked when I was wearing this mascara. The drying time is perfect if you need to go back and fix any mistakes or smudges on your lid in between coats (in the washable formula). It holds a curl fairly well too even though the formula is very buildable. The only problem with this mascara is the scraper. I often find myself having to grab a tissue to wipe off the excess product to avoid clumping. Still, don't hesitate to give it a try especially since it's one of the cheaper drugstore mascaras.
