Product: It gave me lots and lots of volume, but not enough length to match it so I looked like i had spider lashes ahaha...it wasn't very flattering. Throughout the day it also started to flake and smear, and the little flakies kept getting in my eye, which was amazingly uncomfortable. With 1 coat, my lashes looked really feathery and a bit more black, with 2 coats, the clumping galore started and from then onwards, it went downhill...dum dum DUMMMMMM
Packaging: I love the colours on the packaging, I think its so cute ! It's very typical maybelline volumn express with the bright colours and slightly fatter tube. However, I didn't like the brush, actually I HATED the brush. It would get stuck in the base of the lashes and then fly off my lashes because im trying hard to get the brush through =.=; Yeah it was pretty difficult to get it evenly applied.
Overall: It's decent, jk, No I don't like this mascara. Maybe if i wanted a natural lash look, but thats rarely, wait no, it doesnt happen ! Just knowing that I'm wearing this mascara and the chances that it might flake into my eyeball horrifys me (contact lens user).
The only thing I loved about this product was the packaging. Maybelline really downgraded with this stuff. It's VERY clumpy and doesn't really give much length- it also flaked alot. Im sticking to the rocket and one by one.
For me, this product wasn't as good as it seemed. This product smeared a lot on my oily skin and I had raccoon eyes. The mascara also made beads on my lashes instead of the nice, smooth application you usually get with other products. The only thing i liked about this product was how it seperated my lashes but overall, I was very upset
I felt like this mascara burned my eyes! The finished look (about 3 coats) is absolutely perfect! It thicken, added length, and curled my eye lashes. But, at the day, there was black under my eyes! No flakes, just severe smudging. I wouldn't repurchase this mascara
My lashes are long and curly, I just use mascara to thicken them up so they look super full and luscious ;) That's why I always choose mascaras with brushes like this one! The long numerous bristles comb through the lashes like nothing else, while also distributing the product pretty well. I can't use wands with small bristles or the black liquid will clump up like crazy!
This mascara is pretty decent and does the job! I'm a little skeptic though about the formula! It's not liquidy nor thick when you first open it, it's actually the perfect texture to thicken lashes up. But as usual, when time passes by, formulas tend to harden and turn into paste like messes. This one is no exception. It lasted me about a month or so and now the formula is really hard and not appropiate for my delicate lashes. So I just bought another mascara from Claire's store and now I'm using it, so right now I'm still in the search for my HG mascara.
****Girls complaining about mascara removal*****
Use Pond's cold cream or other moisturizing based makeup remover to take this product off your eyes. It actually comes out pretty easily with oil derivate products :)
Great product makes my lashes look fuller and thicker but does clump a bit. I usually just use my Clinique mascara to add length and eliminate the clumps.
Well, First off it does make your eyelashes look pretty, and full. It's about $6 maybe, But when I went to go to take a shower the mascara wouldn't come off. I had to wash my face SEVERAL times. Definitely not buying it again.
So, it does make my eyelashes look beautiful! and i love that my lashes feel soft and fluffy afterwards, and the applicator is so big i love it, but when i went to take this off it would not budge! no matter what i tried it would not come off! and while trying i lost some lashes! not cool! the next day my lashes where all clumpy and gross because i couldn't get it off!!
So i will not repurchase this because it was a nightmare!
Here's what I like: price (4.99 Cdn--a bargain), formula (not too wet or too dry), brush has a good shape in that it is nice and fluffy, and once dry my lashes are actually soft. I have naturally long and fairly full lashes and am not a fan of rubber bristled brushes or brushes that are too skinny. Dislike: the "flex" feature of the wand applicator. Makes it feel slightly wimpy and tends to flex too much. If you use too much force in applying I can see this wand driving a person crazy. It's how I felt about the Naturluxe mascara--terrible wand for me. Id probably buy the Mega Plush again if it was super-duper on sale but its not at the top of my list.
Happily used this for 3 months, it wasn't great but not terrible either. Ready to move on to something else though.
