So I was strolling down an aisle in walmart buying a few Hard Candy items when I past the Maybelline section, since I tend to favor the Maybelline brand I just had to stop and look at what they had. I found this on sale for $5.99. I figured on my quest to find great mascara for those who have short and sparse lashes like me, I’d give this a try. I heard great things about this mascara from thedrugstoreprincess.tumblr.com, she was always recommending this mascara and raving about it. Which I should have learned that her advice usually doesn’t work that well for me by now. But I decided to give this a try anyway.
The wand is pretty long, with short bristles that are meant to get as close to the base as possible. I found that this mascara did an okay job separating my lashes. There is a slight chemically smell, but you find that in almost all mascaras. The mascara is quite dry. Drying almost instantaneously as I applied it to my lashes. I didn’t like that at all.
The two pictures below are of my lashes without the mascara.

As you can see this mascara lacked in the lengthening department, where it should have shined. This mascara promised ‘stiletto length’ lashes. I’m very disappointed. There isn’t any added volume either, and it clumps my lashes together to boot. I did love that it was on the drier side. I hate wet mascaras! They’re so messy!! This mascara did last all day without smudging or flakes. Which was a great plus.
VERDICT Even if this mascara lasted without smudging or flaking I’ll pass it lacks the lengthening properties that is the selling point. Thank god I got this on sale! Usually retails around $8.
