First of all, WHAT A LONG NAME! Haha. Let me present you Maybelline’s new mascara.
What it claims: Now, get stylized lashes with 5X the volume and not a single clump. The waterproof Curl Lock Formula sets to a seductive 75-degree curl. For 18 hours of savagely sexy lashes… in just one stroke!
Color available: Feline Black
The description of this new mascara sounds interesting. Without wasting any time, let’s get started! 😀 (Camwhore alert!)
Before I start off, I want to show some pictures of my so-called naked lashes. These are the before pictures:
I’m sorry if the side-angled picture looks really crappy. I still am not good in taking pictures lol. As you can see, my lashes are… erm, okay lol. I didn’t curl my lashes prior to taking these pictures. I have slightly, just slightly curled lashes. The length is just fine, not extra-ordinarily long, but they aren’t short. As for the volume, my lashes aren’t sparse, but the thickness between left and right lashes are quite different. My right lashes are slightly more sparse compared to the left ones. Just so you know, the one I took is my right lashes :).
The mascara wand looks similar to Majolica Majorca Lash Expander mascara, yet this one has two spiked combs instead of one. I couldn’t get the mascara wand picture as everytime I took it, the picture always doesn’t come out right (maybe it’s just my stupid phone camera lol). The application was simple and easy. However, you gotta be careful as the mascara starts to clump after 2 strokes. I suggest you to be light-handed when applying this mascara and you can say goodbye to the clumping problem :D. That’s what I do anyway (I’ve already bought this, so I must find a way to make it work!). The mascara wand is pretty small so you can reach your baby lashes and those at inner corner of your eye without smudging your eyelid. It clumps like crazy though when I tried to apply second coat -_- (BOO to Maybelline’s claim on “not a single clump”), so get your lash comb ready!
Does it really give me volume and curl? Check these following pictures out 😉
Please ignore the different volume of my right and left lashes, I’ve already said they have different thickness. Well, the mascara does give me more volume and curl, but not that super dramatic like what it claims. One thing I found that my lashes are lengthened a little bit ^_^. The mascara doesn’t flake either, so for you all who are contact lens avid user (like me!) do not worry, this mascara is pretty safe. Removal, similar to other waterproof mascara, can be quite a pain, so I suggest you to use proper eye make up remover :). Ah yeah, almost forgot, after applying one coat, I realise I can see the difference already so I didn’t apply additional coat.
Has anyone tried this mascara out? Please share your experience as this review is based on my opinion. I don’t know whether the mascara would work well on short, very sparse and straight lashes or not o_0, so do share! 😀 After all, I still think this mascara is quite a decent one, you just have to get used to the wand and voila, byebye clumps!
Plus: Cheap, gives volumes and curl, no flaking, decent wand, ease of application
Minus: Clumping like mad, not as dramatic as it claims, not washed off easily
