One of my most popular blog posts is this SUPER OLD mascara review that must pop up as a suggested post for new subscribers/followers. It’s constantly receiving views + every time it does, I cringe because A) it’s an ancient post with horrible pictures and B) I don’t actually use any of those products anymore.
With that said, I have a NEW favorite mascara that I’ve been 100% faithful to for almost 2 years now, and have been itching to share here!
I am constantly getting compliments on my eyelashes from not only friends + family, but clients, waitresses, cashiers, and baristas alike! It’s really so sweet , it always make my day + confirms what I’ve come to know is true …that I’m definitely using the right mascara!
Insert my secret weapon…
This drugstore gem puts every designer product I’ve tried to shame!
The brush has a slight curve to it and features your traditional bristles (no plastic here). The formula is the perfect blend of wet + creamy and the application is incredibly smooth. It distributes evenly with very few if any clumps at all. The design makes it beyond easy to wing your lashes out at the ends – which I LOVE to do!
For everyday use, I wear it in the color “Brownish Black” with 1 to 2 coats — but for a special occasion or a night out I love it in the shade “Blackest Black” with 3 or 4 coats. Be sure to coat the bottom + top of your lashes!
Like any product, there are a couple of cons that I must note:
- Do not buy the waterproof version. I mean, you can…and I’ll admit that I opt for waterproof mascara when attending a wedding or event where I may shed a tear or two, but I’m just warning you now…it is downright difficult to remove!
- It dries up fairly quickly. It’s suggested that any mascara be tossed after 3 months of use, but I’d say this one may fall into the 2-3 month range. Luckily, it retails for $5-$7 so replacing it every couple of months is not going to set you back.
I adore this product so much + find myself recommending it everyone! I’ve gone through, gosh…at least a dozen tubes of this miracle makeup!
If you haven’t tried it out, I highly suggest you pick it up + see for yourself. You can find it anywhere Maybelline products are sold (basically everywhere) or you can order it online here!
What is your absolute favorite mascara?
Great eyelashes! Great post! I am glad you added the part about the waterproof being hard to remove, I usually get waterproof mascara to keep my curl.
You’re so welcome! Thank you for reading 🙂
I do love the idea of waterproof mascara + definitely use it once in a while, but yes, it is a painnnn to remove. XOXO
Very beautiful, Amanda! Would have loved to see a “before” version of the lashes though, for comparison.
I know!! I SUCK at remembering to shoot before pics! A few posts ago, I did a YSL product review + you can see my naked face + lashes there! lol … https://amanda-bella.com/2015/08/20/yves-saint-laurent-touche-eclat-voxbox-review/

Yesss, it’s the best!! & Of course, I’d love to check out your blog! 🙂
Mascara is one of the products I am not faithful to any particular brand- simply because I haven’t found one I’ve ever fallen in love with! I can’t wait to try this kind- if my lashes look half as fabulous as yours I’ll be happy!
Aww, I hope so!! There are few products that I continue to re-purchase, but I’ve been so loyal to this one for years! Let me know if you give it try! XO
