Ive been looking for a mascara that's less expensive than my usual, MAC and Estée Lauder that I can wear daily and save my more expensive mascaras for more special occasions.
My pet hate is smudges under the eye which make you look tired.
So I read up on best smudge proof mascaras stumbled upon this one thought id give it a try.
I actually love this mascara. It lengthens beautifully and separates well, doesn't come out clumpy and is a lightweight formula which doesn't weigh down the lashes. I think this mascara gives a really pretty natural looking eyelash not too OTT or over made up but just pretty fluttery and long. I've had no smudging underneath and no flakes or clumps. I think it perform exceptionally well for a drugstore mascara. Really pleased and will continue to buy this.
This is my favourite drug store mascara. Love love love it!!!
Lovely mascara! One of the best ones I have tried!
It adds length, volume and last but not least seperates my lashes!
I hate clumpy wet mascara, but this one isn't like that at all. Actually dries pretty quickly.
This mascara is such a great all around mascara. It pretty much does everything, not ONLY volume, lenght, etc.
I will recommend and probably repurchase too.
This is an alright mascara. I originally bought it because I had a few mascaras that gave me good volume, but not much length, so I thought this might be good for layering over those. Unfortunately, I found that this wasn't great for layering. This just didn't coat my lashes very well when another mascara was underneath. I can't tell you why, but it just didn't.
Alone, this works much better. The formula is on the drier side, so you aren't as likely to get smears or make a mess when applying. Since the formula is a little dry, I find that you need to layer it quickly. If I wait too long between coats, the mascara won't really build up, it'll just start getting a little clumpy and spidery.
Two coats of this is usually perfect -- it gives nice length, and good definition and separation. The fibers make my lashes look fluttery and wispy, which I really like. I bought this because I had heard several people say this will give you super insanely crazy long lashes, but I've used many mascaras that gave more length than this. But this will definitely give you a good amount of length, and it looks very natural. I tend to use this when I wear little to no eye makeup, and it really doesn't look obvious that I'm wearing mascara. If I'm wearing a heavy smoky eye however, I'll pass on this, because it just doesn't define my lashes enough.
I know a lot of people don't like fiber mascaras because the little fibers can flake off and land on your cheeks or in your eye. I didn't have too much of a problem with this, though. I never had it flake off all over my face, and only occasionally did I feel a little piece in my eye. It was definitely uncomfortable when it happened, but it really wasn't a big issue for me.
I would recommend this to those who really want length and not much else, and also to those who want very natural looking lashes. I really like big, huge lashes, so this wasn't an everyday mascara for me. But it does give a nice effect, and I will probably repurchase this in the future for my minimal makeup days.
I thought this mascara was way too overpriced for what it was claiming to do. I had heard some good reviews on it and I probably should have read about it on here before purchasing it. I used it once and had to apply about 6 coats before I even noticed a slight change. Really not a fan of this mascara, didn't seem to do much. Definitely won't be repurchasing.
I love the brush and the way the formula lengthens my lashes. I accidently picked up the waterprood version so I never wear this mascara because it's too hard to remove at night (silly me). Overall, great lengthening. It isn't worth the price though.
This is great at what it says it does, which is lengthening. If you're looking for volume, look elsewhere.
I have very short stubby Asian lashes and this significantly makes my lashes look longer. For its price, I think it is worth at least a try. I double this up with a voluminizing mascara (right now, using Maybelline Rocket) so I get both the length and the volume I desire. I have yet to find a great mascara that adds both length and volume so this for now will have to do. This is also smudge-proof in the waterproof version!
Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions mascara is so amazing! My lashes are short/average length, but with blonde tips, and this makes them stand out SO well. It's very lengthening, though not so voluminous, which is admittedly drawback for some people. It's a nice consistency, great formula, and separates and coats individual lashes quite well. Overall an awesome product :)
I think for this formula the waterproof version is the best, i have tried both and both are great for my lashes. I don't get why people say they wish there was more volume, the mascara does not say adds volume. It does exactly what its supposed to do. I have very different eyelashes for each eye, one eye has long thick eyelashes the other has average thick lashes that need the length. I usually put on a first coat of a volumizing mascara, and then change to illegal length and i always get the look i want. It stays all day and doesn't smudge or flake on me with either of the brands, it also doesn't dry out easy. It can get on your lids if your not careful but i usually take it off with a makeup remover pen, or put my eyeliner over it. It is honestly one of my favorite mascaras of all time.
Meh. I didn't think it was mind blowing. Good for a drug store buy I guess. Clumpy though. Wouldn't buy this again. I think the mascaras that have the two wands with primer on one end lengthen much better.
