I love drugstore mascaras. The one product that has a minute lifespan compared to other makeup products, I prefer going with drugstore brands as I think they do exactly what it says on the tin at a fraction of the price.
With my old mascara coming to an end, I decided to try another Maybelline mascara. I loved their one by one mascara that they released a while ago so I didn't think they'd let me down. I've always been interested in the 'spoon style' brushes and when Superdrug had a deal on this mascara, I nabbed it up quickly!
The brush itself takes some getting used to as it says on the packaging to use the inner curve side against the lashes. Being a makeup noob, I'm not actually sure the science behind spoon style brushes but it did cover my lashes very well. The black shade was very much a true black and it created lots of lovely volume on my lashes. That's really where the good things end. I like my makeup to be long wearing as I find myself being out and about for long periods of time (usually 10 hours!) so around the 5 hour mark, I found it to flaking off and smudging everywhere.
I decided to give it one last go but the last time I wore it, I came home from a quick visit to Edinburgh to find that it had smudged ALL OVER MY EYES! You know when you see girls in movies crying and their mascara is running down their face? It was like that. Except I hadn't been crying (maybe afterwards I was when I realised that was the reason a guy on the train was looking at me weirdly). Devastated.
I still have faith in Maybelline and their amazing products but I don't think I will be re-purchasing this. Waterproof mascara may be a pain in the backside to remove but it'll save me a lot of embarrassment in the long run!
Have you tried this mascara before? What are your thoughts on it?
