I go through phases when it comes to makeup. Certain times I’m really into one aspect of makeup moreso than all the rest. Right now I’m on a lash kick. I have tried quite a few Maybelline mascaras that I like, and I’ve been hearing a lot about a few newer ones. Maybelline was BOGO 1/2 off at CVS so I picked up a couple of them with my last prescription. ;)
Maybelline Big Eyes is a neat concept. A double-ended mascara wand with a large end for top lashes and a tiny end for bottom lashes. It’s part of the Volum’Express Falsies line, which is pretty popular. There’s lots of love for The Falsies, so I was excited to try this.
Bottom line: This mascara totally sucks y’all.
Maybelline claims this instantly makes eyes look 2x bigger, for an “over the top glam effect”.
What actually happens…is this mascara just sort of tinted my lashes. When I tried to build it up to actually get some of that glam effect, it just clumped. The formula is really really dry. So dry in fact that it seems like a really OLD expired mascara. And before you ask if the product I got was just indeed old, this mascara is a brand new product. It’s not old enough to be that *old*. The brush for the bottom lashes is nice, but soooo not worth dealing with shitty mascara for.
Basically, it’s total crap…and I want my $7.50 back. I’m looking for my receipt and then BYE.
