Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Mascara
So I finally got my hands on Maybelline’s newest mascara the Illegal Length Fiber Extension formula. I picked the shade blackest black and I think I paid about $7.99 for it. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and I’m actually really impressed with the formula. Personally, I wasn’t very wowed with L’oreal’s Voluminous False Lash Mascara which also was touted as a fiber mascara. However, I am loving Maybelline’s version.
The wand is fairly skinny and tapers at the tip. I find it does a really nice job separating my lashes and doesn’t get messy or clumpy when you pull it out of the tube.
The formula for this isn’t too dry or wet but a nice medium consistency and it does add a lot of length to my lashes without any clumping. While I usually favor mascara’s that focus more on volume and thickness I find I really like the look I get with this particular lengthening formula.
Things You Need To Know:
1. This is a true fiber mascara and claims to be able to build up to 4 mm of measurable extension to each lash. I think it does a very good job at living up to that claim.
2. I found this worked best if I did NOT let the mascara dry between coats
3. I usually apply 2-3 coats for the most dramatic look
4. I did not notice any smudging or flaking throughout the day
If you’ve been eyeing this and wondering whether or not to pick it up I would definitely say go for it! It gives you a great everyday mascara look and if I add a coat of my favorite volumizing mascara on top I get a great dramatic evening look.
