Maybelline Great Lash
I know this mascara is considered a 'classic' of sorts, but to me its just ok. Its great if you are going for a more natural look, but I never do that!! I want my lashes to look fake and this one just doesn't do it for me.
XXL is a dual mascara and base. The base is a white gel that you apply to your lashes before the mascara. Its supposed to add volume. Lancome made one that I kind of liked so I thought I'd try this one. Again, it was just ok. I actually thought it made my lashes look skinnier, as all the white gel did was make my lshes stick together. The term 'spidery' comes to mind. Not a good look.
Maybelline The Colossal
I actually like this mascara, which, from what I've read, most people don't. It has a tendency to clump. However, if you can get rid of the clumps it does give you really nice, thick lashes. It doesn't make your lashes stick together, which I despise. It just sometimes leaves excess product (clumps) on your lashes that you have to take off. So thats a little annoying. But again, the final product is quite nice.
This was my go to mascara for many years. This is a darned good mascara! It does just what the name says. You will get very dark, thick lashes. However, as with most volumizing mascaras, there can be some clumping. Its not as bad at The Colossal, but it still happens. That being said, this is still one of my favorite mascaras.
Maybelline Lash Blast
This is my absolute favorite mascara! Something about that weird brush makes it do everything that I want it to do. It lengthens, thickens, and never clumps! My lashes never seperate either and they always look full and dark. If you are looking for one mascara that will do everything, this is it!
Maybelline The Falsies
After seeing the name of this mascara I knew I had to try it! Isn't that exactly what I want?! Anyways, its a little premature to be doing a review on it as I've only tried it once (today) but I will go ahead anyways. First, its has a curved brush which I'm not used to. This will have to take some practice. I got more mascara on my eyelids than on my lashes! Also, I was having a hard time keeping the lashes seperated. When all was said and done though, my lashes look pretty good!
You be the judge:
I will have to give this mascara a few more tries before I decide for sure what I think. I'll update you all later!
So ladies, what are your favorite mascaras? Are there any that you despise? Also, are there any department store brands I should try?
