Allow me to channel LSP here: “OH. MY. GLOB.”
This may sound a little excessive, but holy crap. You have no idea how stubborn my lashes are. They look alright in person. If you were really, really, really, really close to my face. I mean, sure.
But they do not hold a curl and no amount of mascara would make much of a difference, especially when my lashes go from “barely there” to “clumpy mess” in a matter of seconds. But this, my friends. This is a pretty great thing right here.
The wand is similar to The Falsies, which is another Maybelline mascara that I like. It has a sort of curved shape, a design that is supposed to allow you to apply mascara easier since it “fits” your lashes’ natural shape.
Are you ready for the results?
LOOK AT THOSE LASHES! Oooh. Aaah. I really can’t believe it. That’s probably nothing to get excited about for you, but for me it is akin to a miracle! Another great thing about it? (What? There’s more?!) It’s waterproof and easy to take off. I think this mascara needs a prize!
I think I have found a new favorite mascara. Unfortunately, it is not cruelty-free, so I will not be repurchasing it. But I will savor the moment~ and let it live out its three-month existence in bliss. Le sigh. I really felt a connection there.
* I received this item in a box that I was sent, but I am not compensated for or required to write a review. Maybelline is not cruelty-free.
Yeah that’s what I thought too. I’m all for making this my HG mascara, but was sad to discover that they aren’t CF. Oh well. Back to the search!
Yup, most of the drugstore brands here are not CF so I’ll be looking at mascaras from essence, wet n wild, and flormar after my ban.
Don’t buy the Multi Action Blackest Black mascara from Essences after your ban. Didn’t do anything for my lashes :((
Aw thanks for the warning!
The one I got is kinda dry so I plan to just give it away. Same with the Revlon Kajal. Maybe they are old stocks. Too bad that I get those from the BDJBox.
Really? Maybe the formula is just drier than what you are used to. Did yours come in sealed, too? I haven’t tested out the Revlon pencil I got, though.
I guess it is drier than Covergirl’s (sorry, not cruelty-free) but I love it. 🙂
Thanks for the review. Yet another mascara to try 😀
Hope it works out well for you. 🙂
My lashes are straight and stubborn too and I love curling mascaras the most. When you run out, try Essence Get BIG! Lashes volume curl. It’s my favorite mascara at the moment 🙂
Hey, why only 3 months? I know you’re not supposed to use them for more than 6, but I go by the smell and mine usually last almost a year.
Thanks, I’ll give that a shot! 😀 I usually toss after 3, but will sometimes stretch it until 6 or so!
Risk of eye infection blah blah according to make up gurus. They recommend tossing mascaras after three months. 🙂
You can stretch it up to 6 🙂
I toss my mascara after three months 😀 I think those Maybelline mascaras are quite nice (I currently have the rocket one), still, I love my YSL mascara 😉
I haven’t tried YSL’s since we don’t carry their cosmetics here! I’ve heard good things about it, though. Am trying out a mascara from LMdb, and it is beautiful!
I have full lashes but they are stubborn too! the only mascaras that work for me are the Falsies, and Majolica Majorca’s so I’m curious about this one, will give it a try!
Hope it works out for you! 🙂
This was my first ever mascara and it’s totally HG-worthy! I use a layer of this for curl + a layer of Lash King for volume for va-voom lashes.
I tried that our and it was pretty but then I clumped it. 😦 However! I tried lash king over an LMdB mascara and it was <333
It’s a pleasure to find your blog 🙂
I love my Maybelline mascara too! I don’t have this version but I am sure this one will work on me very well. It’s my trusted brand for drugstore mascara.
Thank you so much for the comment. 🙂 I love Maybelline mascaras as well. They’ve worked pretty well for me, in general.
I’m currently loving The Falsies and I love the wand it comes with which as you noted, is similar to this. Maybe I’ll give this a try when it’s time to toss my current mascara.
I really liked The Falsies, but I think I like this a bit more, so definitely worth checking out!
Reblogged this on Maybelline Queen.
