1. Good color selection. But let's be real, we all use the blackest black that there is, right? Well, maybe not all of us. But at least I do!
2. The formula with the curved cat-eye type brush is bangin'. AKA it works well and I like it. A problem I had with my ex-mascara is that it was difficult to get the outer-corner lashes. This brush definitely makes that easier.
3. Good price. This mascara has lasted me for 10 months, and I purchased it for about $4. I haven't run out yet. I wear it about 3-5 times a week. That might be sad, but I think it means it's got a lot of product in that little tube and I am thankful for that. Good investment!
4. Formula. Just, all around, great mascara formula. No clumps, no smudges (once you let it dry after application), no flakes all over your face.
1. Not fun when wet. There's a waterproof version that I haven't tried, be warned. Anyway, when you cry or when it rains, this runs all over your face. When you're in the shower and you have it on (I like to take showers before bed to wash my make up off and so that I can pin-curl my hair) it burns the eyes.Nooooooo fuuuuuuuun.
2. Maybelline tests on animals. That's a personal con for me. So while it was nice to try this, I will not repurchase ever.
I gave it 4 lippies, AKA I really liked it, but I'm not in love. This is a great mascara, but it's not great enough for me to stop trying other mascaras. I would still like one that doesn't have as many chemicals, is safer for my eyes/lashes, and is life-friendly (doesn't test on animals).
I prefer the curled brush to the regular brush.
This mascara is really good but I only really use it for my bottom lashes because of how small the brush is:)
I guess I don't really understand the hype with this product as being one of the best, if not THE best, drugstore mascara. There's a lot of other drugstore mascaras I would prefer 100x over this mascara!! I've tried the other variations of the product, none of them really do it for me. This is a very plain mascara, doesn't seem to add volume or length for me, and as I already have black eyelashes I need something to really beef up my lashes. This is probably a good mascara for those who just want to paint their lashes darker, and not much else. I personally prefer volume, so I will look elsewhere!!
Although I wear a good eye primer this mascara always seems to leave smudges on my browbone and flakes on my cheeks even if I'm only wearing make up for 2 or 3 hours out of the day. I don't care how cheap it is I won't be repurchasing this.
I love this mascara! It's affordable and it looks natural when you put it on. It's perfect for the girl who wants to wear make up and have it still look natural. Towards the end of the tube's life, there's a little bit of clumping/thickening, but that would be my only complaint about it.
Ive tried this as a teen& as an adult.I didnt like it then&I still dont...clumps like you wouldnt belive.too much product comes out on the wand...I dont understand why so may people recomend this or say they use this&have carried it in their makeup bag since they started using makeup (is it because u still have the same tube? Mabey theres a trick they know that I dont ?)
I've tried this mascara multiple times, wishing I would get good results because the price is low. However, it is a loss. Lots of clumping.
It wasn't a very attractive package, but the mascara inside was pretty awesome!
This is the best mascara i've ever used. I have used a lot of mascaras by maybelline but this one by far gives me the longest eyelashes. People in my class always ask me wha i use :)
I don't know why a lot of people don't like this!!! I loooove this mascara. My lashes look very natural so this is my every day mascara :) And it is so cheap you can't possibly go wrong. I'll buy this when I finish my current tube.
PLUS: if you own this and no longer don't know what to do with it here is another use:
I have full eye brows (not like Cara Delevingne lol but I don't need to fill them in) and sometimes I feel like they could look better, so this is what I do almost every day:
When the tube is almost empty, instead of throwing it away what I do is to gently brush my eye brows with the little product there is left (with the mascara brush)
I started to do this after realizing my setting powder wouldn't come out of my brows, so my face looked weird with the powder that was left on them.
After I do the brushing my face looks cleaner and my eye brows well defined and fuller. Plus my lashes look great, too ;)
Hope this works on you!!
