It’s official. I’ve found my Holy Grail mascara.
I read about the Maybelline Define-A-Lash in a favorite makeup post by Erin of Sunnyside Up so when my last tube of mascara was used up I decided to try it out. I bought the waterproof formula in the shade “very black.” Using a new tube of mascara for the first time is usually a wonderful moment but when I opened this mascara the clouds opened up and I’m pretty sure I heard angels singing in the background. It was that wonderful. I have pretty dark and long lashes to begin with so I don’t like mascaras that add a crazy amount of drama. This mascara gave my eyes a polished look and helped my lashes look longer and hold a curl while still looking like eyelashes. My last mascara smeared under my eye after a couple of hours but this mascara stayed put all day. I didn’t think I was going to like the brush at first. I tend to prefer brushes with long, fibrous bristles. This brush had plastic bristles and it was very flexible, but it combed through my lashes like a dream. The only downside to this mascara is that it isn’t volumizing or thickening at all. I like that about it but if you don’t you will need to pair it with a mascara that does that.
Have a great day!
