Better than most
This is one of my favorite drugstore mascaras. I used bottle after bottle before finding my HG mascara. The brush on this one is unlike the others that I've used; this one is rubber, and the spikes that are on it are actually spikes instead of little brush hairs. I love how it separates and lengthens really well. The only complaint I have is that if you poke yourself in the eye, it REALLY HURTS because you're poking yourself with rubber spikes instead of brush fibers.
Does what it says.
I needed a decent mascara for a funeral, and since I really like the regular Define-A-Lash, I decided to grab this one. It worked perfectly, nicely defining all of my lashes without clumping, and was definitely waterproof. I may have sobbed and outright cried at times, but all my mascara was still in place by the end of the day.
It doesn't give a lot of volume, so better for more natural/conservative looks.
Fine on its own...
I have been looking for an alternative from my Maybelline full and soft as I can't find a place that still sells them other than the internet... and £3.50 post and packing for 1 product is extortionate. I do like this product on its own, so like barely any make-up, just the bare and fresh look, however, it doesn't work when with more make up. I find that it doesn't really give you the ooophm factor that any eyeshadow look needs.
This mascara does what it says it will do.
I've been looking for a cheapie alternative to my regular Lancome Definicils WP mascara since I've been on a budget this past year. I'm so happy to have finally found this Maybelline mascara!!! The formula is great, as most L'Oreal mascaras are, but the plastic brush and wiper (that actually wipes the excess mascara off the brush) are what help to separate and define each lash. I don't usually rave about drugstore brand mascaras, I'm kind of a snob when it comes to mascaras but I felt this one really deserved it.
I gave it 4.5 stars because as much as I love the lash by lash definition, I need more volume. I always use a second coat of mascara (Dior Iconic WP) to thicken up my lashes, and it usually does the trick.
Still, a great buy for the price and I can't wait to try the volumizing version!
