Ok ladies, it’s time to get excited. I have just tried one of the most incredible lengthening mascaras… EVAR.
I’ve never been all that excited for lengthening mascaras because I tend to favour those that volumize over lengthen, but this little baby is ah-maazing… I’m talking about Maybelline’s new Illegal Length Fiber Extensions mascara. I’ve only tried one fiber mascara prior to this one and I wasn’t that impressed. The fibers seemed to sprout out in all directions making my lashes look unnatural and unruly. Maybelline’s Illegal Length mascara, however, gives my lashes instant length in the most natural-looking way. According to Maybelline, most fiber mascaras only give about 2mm in length. Their patented formula, on the other hand delivers double that – 4mm! And I can attest that I saw a noticeable difference in lash length. It looked as if I was wearing individual false eyelashes – I could not believe that that length was achieved with just a mascara!
The other thing I hated about fiber mascaras is that I find them typically difficult to remove. I felt as though I had to rub all my eyelashes off to remove the little fibers. And trust me, I can’t afford to lose any lashes! Maybelline’s Illegal Length washable formula (I used it in Blackest Black) dissolved instantly with my eye makeup remover and rinsed off clean. Removability is a key evaluation criteria for me when testing mascaras!
The washable formula comes in 3 shades: Very Black, Blackest Black and Brownish Black and the waterproof formula comes in 2 shades: Blackest Black and Very Black. It retails for $9.99 at drugstores and mass retailers.
If you’ve tried this mascara, I’d love to hear your thoughts too!
