Yes, I admit, I was suckered in. The hype surrounding this mascara, especially when it was exclusively available in the UK and inaccessible to little Canadian me, launched me into an obsessive state. I needed to get my hands on it. So when it finally arrived on Canadian shores, I was ready and waiting.




Talk about a major letdown. I paid only $3.99 for this (on sale) and I'm still wishing I could get my money back. It's too wet, and the brush is a mess - the spoon shape doesn't work for me and it just distributes the mascara in clumps. Do I look like I'm wearing falsies? Absolutely. The knotted up, stretched out, dying kind of falsies that you should have thrown out instead of desperately trying to get one last wear out of.... No. This mascara is not good. Back to Full N Soft, Lash Exact and Voluminous I go.

I like this mascara, No clumps/smears. The brush is unique and flexible. It didn't work as much for me cuz I got short asian lashes. If you got medium/long lashes, you'll love this mascara

So, this mascara is basically Maybelline Great Lash's formula with a new bottle and brush. The formula is wet and messy, and the brush is awkward. I thought having a "spoon" shaped brush was a good idea until I saw it. The bristles are too long and too short in all the wrong places. I have very short, thin lashes so whenever I used this, the mascara would get all over my eyelid and make a huge mess. OK volume, not so much length. Doesn't smudge too much, and removes easily due to how wet the formula is. Still, there are better mascaras out there that are around the same price. I don't understand why Maybelline insists on making mascaras that have the same disgusting, wet formula, so I won't be repuchasing any mascaras from Maybelline anymore.

I don't have eyelashes, so anytime a product gives me some, it's a big deal. I regret to say this product didn't do that for me. Sometimes I wonder if companies purposely do things, like take away a perfectly HG product. Then create a bunch of new products that all have the same name but a different color on the band, making it impossible for someone with ADD (like me) to take the time to find out what the difference is between XXL Pro Daddy Longlegs and XXl Pro Baby Daddy Longlegs.

The Falsies didn't work for me, even after trying different techniques to apply it. My lashes became clumpy with no length. The packaging colors were pretty retro, the Fuschia and Teal took me back to Crayola days. Don't get me wrong, I love alot of Maybelline Mascaras, like Lash Discovery, but what I'm really trying to say is, bring back Lash Stylist already. I miss it. =(

This mascara dosen't clump or flake like the other maybelline mascaras do.This is way better that the lash stilleto, which wasn't all that. I like the brush design. It's a curved spoon like brush.So far it is a good mascara.

Major disappointment. Some length, but little volume. Didn't hold the curl for me. If you're looking for volume & drama, I would look elsewhere. I would not purchase this again and I'm giving the tube I do have to my stepdaughter.

I just bought this mascara today. I had a difficult time even finding it, which really aggravated me. Well I finally found it at a CVS store. I was so thrilled. Anyway, I got it home and lined my eyes with the classic eyeliner (Maybelline of course), then put the mascara on. I then curled my lashes. I was impressed with the coverage and the softer formula. The bent wand is good for me since that is what works best with my eyes normally. I normally bend most wands if I can. Overall I love this mascara and would buy it again. I do wish they would come out with a brown or black/brown color. It's only available in black where I got it.

LOVE this mascara!!! I bought it on a whim since i usually buy the Collosal which i also love. But this stuff makes my lashes so long and soft!! Will definetly repurchase and i didnt have any problems applying it, i even added a second coat with no issues. Definetly worth a try if you like Maybelline mascaras!

Just bought this product last night. Usually nto a fan of maybelline mascaras because they make my eyes tear up, however, this formula didnt surprisingly. With just two coats of the mascara, i had that falsie baby doll lash effect!!!!! Very impressed since Im usually a MAC zoom lash wearer. Will be heading back to buy in black brown. Currently own blackest black, just fyi.
