It's alright. I use this for my lower eyelashes because it really catches the smaller hairs. this does however make my eyelashes look really fake if i put it on my top lashes. but it works.
I'm on a quest to find a completely non-flaking mascara. I liked the idea of the small brush that this mascara uses because I'm very clumsy and always get mascara on my skin with large brushes. The tiny brush is nice, but the formula is terribly. Few mascaras I've used have flaked and smudged as much as this does. I'm discouragedly continuing my quest.

I typically stay away from Maybelline mascaras because of the horrible Great Lash mascara. However, when I saw this one on sale for two bucks, I decided to give it a go. I'm very surprised to say I really like it! The formula is great. My long but thin lashes become more visible and full. It's not very dramatic but nice for a day time look. I bought the black brown version and it's the perfect color. Very dark, but not quite shockingly black. The brush is great. It helps get all my little lashes in the corner of my eyes. Overall, I love this mascara! I'm giving in a four not a five because of two things. 1. It takes a little longer to dry than most mascaras I use, so I have to be really careful it doesn't smear. and 2. It's not waterproof. I wore this to a lake and got black specks all over my face. Not cool, Maybelline, not cool.
I actually got this mascara for free in the mail after joining Maybelline's online club myMNY. At first, I didn't think it would be very good, since the brush is TINY! But after I tried it, I realised I was wrong. This brush is amazing in hard to get to places, and perfect for when you just want to lengthen your lashes. It's not very good (or practical) for thickening or curling lashes, but is great for lengthening and defining lashes. The tiny brush turned out to be a nice change from some of the huge mascara brushes that I have that seem way too big for my eye.
I really like the packaging, it's small, attractive, and simple. It takes up little space in my makeup bag, and is easy to slip into your handbag or pocket.
I would buy this again, but only if I found it at a cheap price, since it's not very good at much else besides defining and lengthening.
Despite the fact that i have around a billion mascaras, i would still rebuy, because i really like this mascara!
The brush is awesome! The teeny tinyness of it makes it really easy to use on bottom lashes, and the lashes at the corners of your eyes.
It didn't smudge, clump, or flake for me, for the entire day.
I would like to add, however, that this isn't very dramatic. That's the reason why i removed a lippie, because you need several coats to get any noticeable effect (not that i mind that!)
But overall, good mascara!
My HG mascara. Makes my lashes look incredible and very easy to use on the tiny lower lashes.
I love the fact it has a mini brush and I can coat all my lashes. I hate the fact that it has no staying power whatsoever. Usually by the end of the work day it has smeared all over the bottom of my eye (I live in a humid climate) and I cried once and low and behold it smeared. And don't think I haven't tried it. I kept it for a month before tossing it because I couldn't stay it didn't last. Regular mascara had better staying power.
I thought I had found a hidden gem when I got this..the perfect mini mascara brush to define my lower lashes....well guess what? The waterproof version (which is the one I purchased) flakes on me... I had to throw it away yesterday out of anger, lol....if this does not flake on you, hurray, as it work's wonderfully. Maybe the non waterproof does not flake, anyone compare?
This is my most favourite WP mascara, I love this even more than CG's LashExact WP!! This has gone through rain storms, humid weather, crying, and all other kinds of water exposure and I never get a smudge! This is really my HG. I have stick straight Asian lashes and this gives me a great naturally full look and because the brush is so small it's easy to reach all the lashes around my eye. Not to mention how easy it has become to define my lower lashes with this product! Absolutely fantastic!!! Will continue to repurchase.
I've never been a fiend about mascara until recently so I mistakenly thought my HG was the full n soft while all along it was lash discovery. I suppose I never paid enough attention to the packaging. Shame on me.
I first started using this about 5 years ago, bought it randomly. While I was using it and getting awesome results, one of my friends casually mentioned it as well, as working really well for her. I like the smaller brush on this mascara compared to some of the bulkier brushes (like CG lashblast). The smaller brush allows me to get underneath the lashes and swipe easier but perhaps just my personal pref. It really lengthens and separates my lashes which I love. (full n soft is a close 2nd for me but I compromise w/ that one due to the slightly larger brush) I really have no complaints about this mascara, if you're looking for a HG, it's definitely worth a try.
I have average to long lashes, for reference.
