Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara Review

maybellinebigeyes

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”.

*BUZZ* WRONG.

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.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create
    your theme? Outstanding work!
