Review: Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara
I am always searching for the prefect mascara. I have been using Sephora Volume Mascara for a couple of years now and I really wanted to try those new rubbery brushes. I didn't buy the Cover Girl Lash Exact because I don't like the quality of their mascaras. So, I bought the new Maybelline Define-A-Lash.
Here's what Maybelline's site says about it:
This zero clump mascara creates stunning length with clean definition.
Contact lens safe and hypoallergenic
Washable; also available in waterproof formula
First of all, this packaging is really fun! The color of green is even brighter in person. It makes it very easy to spot in my makeup drawer! You can't really tell from the picture but the little rubbery bristles are slightly different lengths. The middle ones are a bit shorter than the ends so those lashes get really lengthened.
The first time I used this I hated it. I'm used to the regular mascara brush where I'd have to put about 5 coats on to get the look I liked. I tried that with this and it was a bad idea! I had to train myself to do one coat at a time slowly so that the lashes didn't clump together. I also wiggle the wand from side to side as I apply it. Sometimes I still have to go back with a clean regular mascara brush because it can get a tad clumpy. The clumps break up perfectly after that though. This stays on all day and doesn't flake off (like Cover Girl's version). It's also not sitcky and it doesn't turn my lashes to little sticks. I swear, my lashes have never looked so long! I will definitely be buying this again!
