After reviewing my favourite makeup palettes and eyeliner here, here and here I thought it was time for another one of my favourite essentials to stand in the spotlight. In the beginning I was a little hesitant about buying it, because it was twice the price of my usual mascaras, but I read quite a few good reviews so I thought I’d give it a try.
I usually don’t spend much on mascaras since my lashes are rather short and none really made much of a difference especially since I’m the kind of person who either goes for dramatic makeup or none at all. I also rarely wear only eyeshadow, so my eyes are always contoured by eyeliner or kohl, anyway what I’m trying to point out is that I basically used mascara only to remove the eyeshadow that would stick to my lashes.
I’m SO glad I bought this one, though! It’s the first time I truly see a significant difference. I don’t regret a penny I spent on it, even though it was more or less an impulse buy. Ok, it doesn’t instantly and magically give you 7x volume as the advertisements promise, but it’s as damn close to magical eyelashes I’ve ever been. Although it comes off really easy with eye makeup remover, it doesn’t smudge (I cried with it on, it didn’t budge).
Another thing that usually bothers me at mascaras is their scent, it’s definitely not my cup of tea. I was incredibly surprised to find out this one doesn’t have that unpleasant scent, but a slightly floral, totally cool one!
Here you can see the bristles. They don’t make my lashes clump together, there goes another white ball!
Above you can see my eye without makeup and below with Maybelline’s mascara on. See the difference?

Over all, it gets five hearts! I will definitely buy it again. Thank you for reading and I hope you found this useful!
