Maybelline Illegal Lengths Fibre Extensions Mascara
It's getting to that time of year where we all go insane with shopping and there are many many bargains to be had. Particularly online. I have checked out another mascara. Maybelline have released Illegal Lengths Fibre Extensions Mascara. The claims are:
• Builds 4mm of measurable extensions!
• Fiber-fix brush has 6 different contact points with each lash for optimal fiber placement
• Breakthrough formula contains fibers up to 4mm in length
• Sealing formula stretches lashes and seals fibers to lashes
• Washable, also available in waterproof formula
I have been using it every day for 2 weeks and am now into my third week. I like the brush as it doesn't deposit loads of blobby product. It combs through each lash and evenly distributes the product through the lashes. After about one week I felt that it did add length, not sure about 4mm (I didn't measure), but I like lots and lots of volume so it didn't give as much volume as I'd prefer. So I use a one coat of another volumising mascara (Volume Express One by One mascara is brilliant for this) and then a coat or two of the Illegal Lengths.
Be careful not to get the mascara on your upper water line (upper inner rim) as the fibres will irritate your eyes but as long as you don't do that there is no problem re the fibres falling into your eyes as there are with some other fibre lash mascaras. It's also recommended on the packaging that you don't wait for the coats to dry before reapplying. An easy way to combat that is apply one coat on one eye, then on the other and then go back to the original eye and so on. Also make sure you apply it from root to tip and not just the tips of your lashes. Otherwise the lashes will become too heavy and will droop instead of opening up the eyes.
I'm very happy with this mascara. If length is an issue then this mascara is for you! And it's soooo easy to wash off! Any cleanser will remove it without harsh rubbing or pulling (not that any of you do that anyway!). I give this a big thumbs up!
I plan to have a few more items tried and tested over the Christmas break. Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you have a lovely and safe festive season with friends and family and may the New Year 2013 bring you all much love, happiness and most of all good health.
Until next time
