Color & Pigmentation:
This mascara comes in both Black and Brown. The one i'm reviewing is the brown one, which looks surprising natural on my lashes! It's a dark brown that looks almost black once on! :)
Texture & Scent:
This mascara is quite goopy, so you definitely need to clean some product off the wand and use a lash comb to remove out the clumps! This one does make your lashes feel "crunchy" once its dried. It could be just this waterproof one though - my friend who's using the non-waterproof version didn't experience this with hers. This does own the usual funky "mascara scent", but thankfully its quite mild (unlike the Loreal Ultra Volume one)!
Brand new in plastic wrap! :D
This mascara comes in the usual tube. The applicator wand curved, and this does help curl your lashes alot! :D
This mascara lasts the entire day, and through showering and washing my face with facial cleanser! Amazing!!
Price & Availability:
This mascara costs RM31.90 (approx. US$9.66), but its almost always on sale! This mascara should be available at all Maybelline displayers at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :D
This one looks really natural with one coat, so its perfect to wear daily to the office! :)
I manage to snag this one when it was on sale at the supermarket near me at only RM14.90! That's less than half of what it costs usually! Whoots! :D
Excitement aside, did this mascara live up to its raves for me? Unfortunately, not quite! :(
Reading other reviews, this looks like a really volumizing mascara! But on my thin lashes, this did little to add volume! It does lengthens and curls like crazy though, and i totally love how this one doesn't weighs down the lashes! It's super waterproof too! I forgotten that i had this one and showered + washed my face with facial cleanser, and it just stayed there! Amazing!! :D
Here's a bunch of pics for you to judge for yourself:
As you can see, this mascara lengthens and curls really well, but did little to volumize my lashes. It's quite clumpy and spidery too after the 2nd coat!
All in all, me thinks that this is not a bad mascara, but i don't like having to work so hard to achieve something when i can get the same results with less effort with other mascaras! :P So i guess i won't be repurchasing this one!
