Push those Plush Lashes! Use Maybelline’s the MEGA PLUSH!

I can almost swear that Benefit’s They’re Real has caused me to loose a couple eyelashes, so now all I have is wispy lashes. Even worse, my eyes are even smaller through my wear of 24/7 spectacles, so my hope of having bigger eyes are pThis is a retty crushed. However, a glimmer of hope has risen in a tube of Maybelline the MEGA PLUSH Volum’ Express Mascara in Blackest Black. This product only came out in June.

I have been looking for something to boost lash volume, and I had read some good reviews on this. This is a gel-mousse formula and it has a Flexor brush that can help you coat every lash. I picked this up at Superstore for under $7 (on sale)

No, it’s not perfect; but it delivers for its price. After 3 coats, the lashes do get a bit weighed down- 2 coats is enough. *Note: I do use an eyelash curler pre-mascara.

Best of all, no falling lashes when I clean them! Hooray!

I like this product indeed! No need for high end mascara!

    Ohh that looks good! Does the “bending” part bend when you move the mascara? Or do you have to physically move its angle so it gets to the harder to reach parts? You know what I mean?

      I used the mascara lightly so it wouldn’t flex, otherwise, if you’re reaching around the curved edges to cover the lashes (ie changing the angle), the mascara wand will bend.
