I LOVE this product!!!!!
I have been using this mascara for a few years now and It's always my go to mascara! I cant get enough of it. I have tried Maybelline falsies and I sometimes use this over it just because I can :). I've tried many mascaras now and do own several which are ok but i tend to use this first or over the top because its so amazing.
* the packaging is awesome, its a dual end mascara with a white primer and black mascara for the second step. It separate your lashes well and I always use it to sort my lashes out so I dont waste all my black on getting them right :).
* The wands are typical mascara wands, nothing special but I find they separate lashes really well.
* i put on several coats until im happy and its doesnt clump together fast or dry to quickly either. Its definitely build able depending on how you like it. Its also good if you want to use another mascara with it too, like I do, whether its first or the seconds one, its just as good :)
* I have long eyelashes but WOW! this product really gets them to their max! It makes them super super long and have a nice subtle curl to them.
* It holds its look ALL day and even til the next day! depending on whether you sleep rubbing your face all over your pillow or not haha.
* It comes off really easily, I mean mascara is never the best to get off anyway but its not difficult thats for sure
* Its standard price here in New Zealand, at Farmers itll always be more expensive by far, but The Warehouse or the supermarket is the way to go and its about $20 which is normal store bought price. I get mine online for about $12 which is way better, or at makeup sales.
The only thing that could be better is put more product in the barrel ends, theres not that much, but i suppose its got two separate sections. Ive bought this many times and I will until something better comes out but itll have to be really good as this is hard to beat
I have no idea when I purchased this product, I found it in the back of my makeup drawer and wondered if it still works after all this time.
The primer is REALLY effective for length like it says, it makes a noticeable difference but not quite false lash worthy. The other side is alright, seems to be a normal mascara nothing special but I love the size of the wand and it's so easy to use on my bottom lashes. I LOVE this mascara, my only complaint is I wish the sides were a bit longer, it's kind of hard to use because it's so close to the base.
My favorite mascara ever... In Waterproof. I've used designer macaras and none have compared. Let the primer sit for a minute before applying the black coat. This product is non clunky so you apply more coats based on how bold of a look you'd like. I love the wand bc it's shorter and sturdier than others giving you more control and less black marks around your eyes that occur when using other brands. This product stays all day, eye lashes curled and everything! I've been asked at least by ten different women if I'm wearing fake eyelashes or what kind of mascara i use. My friends that have started using this brand are also hooked!
My biggest recommendation would be to choose the waterproof version. (black blue and yellow) for some reason the primer on that one works better than the non-water proof. And to let the primer set before applying the black!
I originally bought this product due to high reviews and 'cause I really wanted a mascara primer. I have very short, thin lashes and heard good things about this product. But after trying it for a few days, I saw that it doesn't do anything for my lashes! The curl doesn't hold all day, and the length is pretty average.I definitely like the Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express better! And it's cheaper too! Much better formula and brush.
If you have short and thin lashes like me, I definitely don't recommend this. I will not be repurchasing.
I used to use this mascara a long time ago. I have to start off by saying I do not like Maybelline mascaras, they are usually cheap quality. This was the ONLY exception, & the only one I liked from Maybelline. This is another version of L'oreal's Double Extend mascara. L'oreal's works better, but this one is a cheaper alternative. This mascara actually gave length & volume, but this mascara flaked a lot, which was the downfall. Maybelline mascaras are notorious for flaking, this one was no different in that aspect. The last time I used this I was probably 13/14 yrs old, so my expectations & quality have changed a lot since then. I won't ever buy this mascara again since I've found much better ones, but I would reccommend you buy this mascara if you're going to buy any mascara from Maybelline. This is the best quality mascara Maybelline makes. continued >>
I LOVE THIS MASCARA...DEF MY HG! Iusually read reviews and when people say Ialways come back to this, I don't getit,because Ilike to switch things around, but I have to say I def do always come back this. I love it!
Decent mascara but i am still on the hunt for my HG. The packaging is very sleek and classy, with two compartments, one for the primer and one for the mascara. The primer builds up my lashes really well but i think the shape of the brush causes most of the primer to cling to the middle of my lashes instead of the outer part which is what i want. The mascara goes over the primer and lengthens well. It makes my lashes look fanned out but it tends to clump my lashes together sometimes so it lookes like i have four, very long and very thick eyelashes lol. The mascara also doesnt cover the primer well and when i try to maneuver the brush to cover it, it ends up clumping my lashes even more. Overall, cheap, decent mascara that lengthens and volumizes pretty well but clumps. Will not be buying again bc i intend to explore other brands.
This rocks! It really extends the look of my lashes and looks like they are fuller and thicker. I'm very happy with the results! I agree with other reviewers to let the primer set for a minute before adding the color. I got the waterproof one and so far so good
It's on the higher side for drugstore mascara but the results are worth it and cheaper than department store ones with similar results so I will buy this again!
I wanted to like it based on price and reviews but unfortunately it didn't pan out for me.
I have Asian mono-lid eyes so that could have been the problem but I found the mascara runny. After 2 hours of wearing it, I would have raccoon eyes.
I tested the Maybelline primer on 1 eye and the Christian Dior Lash Serum on the other and the Maybelline mascara would still leave me with raccoon eyes. Of course the eye with Christian Dior Lash serum wasn't as bad as the Maybelline primer. So definitely not waterproof as advertised. . Although, the mascara did lengthen and added volume to my lashes which I appreciated.
I found the brush way too long and big so if you have small eyes it was difficult to maneuver around the inner lids.
Luckily, the mascara was dirt cheap but definitely would not repurchase.
The hunt continues for a cheaper primer alternative to the Christian Dior Lash Serum.
Loved this product! Step 1 (primer/white mascara) was fantastic, lengthens lashes and instant length! The second step (mascara/black) finished it off, lashes always look fantastic. Although after a little while the black mascara becomes thick.
*TIP* Allow the first step no longer than a minute to set on your lashes before applying second step as the mascara will clump. If you put it on right away then you will have flawless lashes.
