Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara




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!

xoxo,

    I usually prefer volumizing mascaras to lengthening ones (as I have long skinny lashes)…but any mascara that gives a false lash effect is good in my book! Will definitely have to try this out!

      Same here… I have skimpy lashes so I always prefer volumizing as well.  While I still would prefer volumizing over this one, I think it’s pretty good for a lengthening formula.  I think I’m going to try wearing my volumizing formula underneath and then this one on top…

    I have blond lashes, so pretty much anything makes my lashes look impressively long. I prefer voluminizing mascaras.

      I know – volumizing is best for me too!

    Like the sound of this – we need before and after lash pictures! I hate clumping so much that I require photographic proof before I buy any formula:)

      Good suggestion!  I do need to do that next time!  But what I can say is – this mascara definitely does not clump.  It may not provide that much volume (just length), but I had no clumping at all.
