Hello beauty friends
Today I wanted to show you the new mascara from Maybelline. I love mascara its one of those products I would most definitely put up a fight to get it on to my list for a desert island. The issue isn't helped by the fact that my lashes are almost non existent. Anyone that reads my blogs will know I have a love for Soap and Glory's mascara and it has always served me well. My only down fall is the price tag at £11.00 per tube its one of the more hefty priced products on the market so with that in mind I had the brain wave of trying out a few new ones and in the process spending way more money than just sticking to the original product I love. But hey is that not what us women where put on the plant to do! Make no sense at all and spend way more than we earn.
So Maybelline mascara where should I start. Lets go with packaging. I picked this up in Superdrug for £7.99. First impressions was the usual quite tacky plastic packaging that Maybelline seem to favor. They have switched it up a little with a new colour theme in bold turquoise and neon pink. Clashy and a little bit flashy.
The wand its self is Maybelline's new 'Flexour Brush'. In simple English they put a ridge near the wand head to create flexibility of the brush. Now on first try it feels quite nice to use. However the pressure that you usually use to apply mascara becomes somewhat impossible as you fight against the bendy wand.
The consistency is the one thing I can really rate and overall sell's this product to me. Maybelline have gone for a new texture of Gel mousse and you can really tell. I like to apply a good three coats of any mascara to create the illusion of lashes and this builds nicely. Although piled onto my eyes it is lightweight and almost fluffy. I found this did help to lengthen my lashes but volumising was slacking a little. I would recommended the mega plush for someone that likes a really natural looking eye or an easy wearing mascara.
