Two reasons I purchased this mascara: 1) the color packaging is beyond cute 2) Maybelline has a great reputation for their mascaras.
I must say, this is probably the worst mascara I've ever bought and tried. It did absolutely nothing but literally wet and coat my eye lashes. The wand is so flimsy that it was so difficult to even put on a full coat on my lashes.
If you already have full, thick, and naturally curled lashes, then maybe this mascara will do it for you as a natural everyday mascara.
Let me start out by telling you that my eyelashes are really long and thick, I was born with a ' defect' that caused a second set of eyelashes to grow, right above the first set, but sometimes I like to darken them up for a night out. I had left my Revlon 3-d elsewhere as I have been traveling, and just wanted this to replace it for the week.
Awful! I purchased this at walmart tonight after having debated it for the past couple days. I thought the brush was going to be huge, my favorite type, and that the formula was going to be unique. Neither was true.
The wand was all differently lengthened spikes and was no where near what the packaging showed. The wand was annoyingly bendy, I couldn't get any where near the base of my lashes with it, and it wasn't structured enough to separate any of my lashes. It made them go straight out, which looks creepy with my eyelashes, lol. The formula was really wet and ended up all over my eyelids, and flicked out of the tube whenever I removed the wand. Not cool.
Will not re-buy
I love this mascara. It makes y lashes look naturally longer and fuller. I've heard people complain that it didn't do anything for then but all I can say to that is that the second coat makes all the difference!
-very natural looking
-nice texture and thickness
-takes a while to dry
-needs a second coat to make a noticing e difference in length and volume
I really like the finish this mascara gave because it really lengthened my lashes and held a curl pretty well for me, but it constantly smudged onto my browbone and I typically don't have that problem with mascaras. Maybe the waterproof version would fix that but because of the smudging, I don't think I would buy it again. There are other mascaras that do the same thing and actually have volume. To get volume, I would have to layer it with Benefit's BadGal Lash. Overall, wish it wouldn't smudge but not a complete dud.
Really disappointed by this mascara. I have fairly long lashes already, but this mascara didn't really add anymore length or volume. It just made my lashes stick together and look crooked and gross to be honest. My lashes also looked very blunt and I prefer the smooth/pointed look. The pictures of the girls' eyes posted depict fairly well what my experience was, but if that's what you like, then go for it. The mascara also started flaking and leaving black specks on my skin after about 4-5 hours of wear. Also, the brush was a little difficult to use. And I noticed that it was a little uncomfortable to wear and my eyelashes stuck-together everytime I blinked. There's just better mascaras out there in my opinion, like Maybelline Great Lash Big.
This is the worst mascara ever! It gave me a little bit of volume, some length--but it didn't separate my lashes at all so everything just clumped together. It gave me spider-ish lashes and that's neither natural or pretty. Don't even get me get started on the wand. The wand is probably the worst thing about this mascara, it's so flimsy and soooo annoying. I don't think i've every hated any mascara as much as i hate this one. such a wasted of money!
This is nice for a natural look. The formula is very "wet" and it's got a bendy wand. It can be annoying when you really want to coat your lashes. I would go to press the wand against my lashes and it would kind of bend back, lol. I felt like I really couldn't "get in" there and coat them. The wet formula was also annoying at times because if I was applying it quickly, it would kind of splash black on my eyelids which is SO annoying if I've already done my eyeshadow.
One thing I do LOVE about this mascara is that it leaves my lashes feeling soft and natural, almost like I'm not wearing any mascara. I really dislike when a mascara leaves my lashes rock hard. I find it so irritating. This gives a full and soft look. I wouldn't call this formula volumizing, but my lashes did look a little fuller and longer. I use this on natural, simple makeup days.
No volume whatsoever. The bendy wand was annoying too
Plush? Yes. Volume? Not so much.
This is a pretty good mascara if you want it for a natural-ish daytime look. It separates the lashes pretty well, and holds a curl for the entire day (I have the waterproof version though, so I'm not sure how the regular version does on this point). I personally wouldn't try adding too many coats with this mascara because a) it'd be pretty hard to in the first place with the springy/floppy brush, and b) it makes the lashes stick together after more than a few coats.
Note: If you want a bit more product and want to avoid the spidery look, use a business card as a lid protector (between your lashes and you eyelid). Not only will the card protect your lid from tricky to remove mascara smudges, but it will allow you to push the brush up against the lashes more.
Overall, great for a quick, daytime swipe, but definitely does not give the volume it implies it will.
Very dry formula. This did nothing for my lashes. Would not buy again.
