There is probably nobody that hasn't heard about this mascara, because it has become extremely popular thanks to its quality and affordable price.
I’ve already tried dozens of Maybelline mascaras, and when I’m buying a new mascara from this brand, I have no doubt that the product will be worthy.
Full Fan Effect - sounds promising, doesn’t it? It makes me think of gorgeously voluminous eyelashes. Does the mascara live up to the hype? Let’s check it out!
After I’ve tried a lot of high end and drugstore mascaras, I realized that high prices doesn’t necessarily means high quality. So I gave up luxury products and found a few decent mascaras in the mid-end range. This mascara is one of them.
The price is about 7 USD.
Okay, let’s get that clear : taking its price into consideration, I can forgive its many flaws, but even if it was three times more expensive, my opinion would be just the same. In that case, I wouldn’t have purchased it again, though.
The bottle is typical for this brand, the mascara is very recognizable, but it is very easy to confuse with another mascara from the same line.
The brush is just perfect, but I know that many girls dislike this bent shape.
I fell in love with it at once, I did not even have to get used to it.
The formula is excellent, it wasn’t runny even when it was new, and it remained unchanged till the end.
The mascara dries quickly enough, it leaves no stains on the upper lid plus it’s convenient if you apply it in two coats - you don’t have to wait for the first one to dry and can apply the second coat instantly.
The mascara is easy to apply and not clumpy. It’s a great option for a quick makeup.
It doesn’t come off or crumble throughout the day, but you have to remember that it’s not waterproof.
The only drawback is that it can glue the eyelashes a little bit, especially when applied in two coats, but it’s not that crucial. I’ve had more expensive mascaras which made my eyelashes look like spider legs.
The mascara can both accentuate the eyelashes (1 coat) or create a gorgeous volume, but that’s a matter of taste.
It can be effortlessly washed off with simple soap or any face cleaner.
It causes no allergies, irritation, redness and burning, although I had such reactions after a few mascaras.
In general, it’s an excellent product for the price.
I'm sure that I will repurchase it, although I can not say that the mascara is perfect. It deserves four stars.
