Good day ladies!
I work during the night and I sometimes struggle staying up my entire shift. I do my best too to look awake for I am stationed at the front desk. Mascaras do help open up my eyes. There was never a night that I don’t wear them. One mascara that I’ve been using for 3 months now, almost finished with the tube, is the Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Waterproof Mascara.

My Take on Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Waterproof Mascara :
Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Waterproof Mascara comes in 2 shades. The Blackest Black and this one I got is Very Black. There’s also a non-waterproof or washable version of this which comes in 3 shades. Both the waterproof and the washable comes in a silver tube that slightly taper at the bottom end. The tube is angular which makes it easy to twist open. With the tube having corners, it gives better grip. Each tube has 22FL oz of product in it.
The wand looks very ordinary and small or regular in size. I actually like that kind of brush because big brushes tend to touch my lids and messes a bit. Me having a hooded lid and short lashes, I prefer smaller brushes. I can reach tothe roots with the wand without touching parts around my eyes. I do noticed that it is effective too in coating every stands of my lashes from inner to corner areas as well as the lower lash line.
The product itself is I’d say not wet and isn’t dry too. It’s just right in the middle which is a plus for me. I like that it dries so fast and was able to hold curls for hours. I noticed that my lashes started to straighten a bit after 5 to 6 hours. It has a smell that reminds me of ink but you only get to smell that when you sniff the wand directly. But during application on eyelashes, you won’t smell that at all.
Now for the result of mascara on lashes, yup it lengthens my lashes nicely. It’s a great help in making my sparse and short lashes visible. Good job.It does make it longer but not really dramatic. Something I’d say NOT the kind of illegal lengths I have in mind. And for volume, it just thickens a tad bit, well maybe because it made my lashes looks blacker and not really volumizing. It does not clump even if I coat twice or thrice. It separates lashes nicely. It does not flake and color does not transfer to my under eye area. Like other Maybelline mascaras I tried, this one is so hard to remove. I’ve used oil and makeup remover and it would come off. But when I wake up the next day, I have panda eyes. But that’s easy to remove with just washing the face with cleanser and water.
What I Like- Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Waterproof Mascara:
-Affordable for $8
-Does not flake, smudge or transfer color
-Holds curls for hours
-Does not irritate my eyes
What I Don’t Like- Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Waterproof Mascara:
-Hard to remove completely
-No dramatic lengthening.
This is a definitely a great mascara but not the best that I tried. I love Dior Show to the max. This is perfect for my everyday wear at work and I trust this mascara a lot.
