Happy Monday everyone!! At this point I’m sure it comes to no surprise that I was at Target this weekend and had to stop in the makeup section… And surprisingly I saw Maybelline’s newest mascara!! I was super excited since it very recently launched and I was able to get my hands on it!
So let’s start with the packaging, its adorable. Metallic pink and red in a slim tube and rose gold writing! I picked it up in the color “304 Blackest Black” in the non-waterproof formula. I don’t know if it even comes in a waterproof formula, when I saw it at Target this was the only option they had, so I grabbed it because I had to try it haha!
The brush it really cool, spikey, great for volume (hopefully) and meant to cup each lash and push them up. It’s a bit of a wetter formula, which I like and prefer, and it really is blackest black. I have dark eyelashes to begin with but they were really dark after two coats of this mascara haha! The volume was pretty good, but I have to admit that I was expecting a lot from this mascara. My one and only complaint is more of a personal one, it didn’t do a great job at holding a curl. My eyelashes, because of my ethnicity, grow straight down and after curling my lashes (which is a step I never miss) and applying this mascara it didn’t hold it at all, or at least that’s what it looked like.
On a high note, it didn’t flake or transfer and stayed on throughout my shift! It added some nice volume and some color to my lashes. It is a really good mascara! I don’t think it will beat my beloved Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara… And I don’t know if anything ever will, it’s no secret anymore how picky I am with mascaras! Who knows, maybe if they do have a waterproof version I would have liked it better!
I hope you all have a lovely Monday!! :)
Until next time,
