maybelline big eyes mascara review

I do love an impulse buy, I am a companies marketing dream. As soon as I see an advert I like, I will instantly be on a mission to buy the product. This was exactly the case when I spotted Maybelline’s new mascara on the telly, I knew I needed to try it. 

Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara is Maybelline’s first double brush mascara. It has a brush on each end, one aiming to push up and widen the top lashes and another mini brush for bottom set of lashes.

I find that this mascara has aspects that work pretty well, as someone who never wears mascara on my lower lashes I was always going to be intrigued. The mini brush is really easy to manoeuvre and it only picks up a small amount of product which I liked as there is nothing worse than clumpy bottom lashes.

The push up brush that is designed for the top lashes did fan them out slightly and my lashes appeared a lot longer, although I didn’t see much ‘pushing up’ going on. Compared to other mascaras I have used it doesn’t really stand out too much.

I do really like the effect that this mascara has on the bottom lashes and will probably be trying it more often as my eyes look a lot wider. I think that this on its own creates a bit of a 60’s inspired look. My only niggle is that a lot of smudging went on under my eyes, creating a bit of a panda eye! But I am not sure whether this is down to the product or me forgetting it is on the bottom and rubbing my eyes.

I found that overall I was ever so slightly disappointed. I really like the bottom brush but the top was nothing to write home about and compared to the advert I didn’t quite find that the end result was as good for me as it looks on the telly. I do tend to find this always happens though, maybe I shouldn’t be such a sucker for advertisements!

    Your lashes look amazing even before the mascara! I have sparse, blonde lashes that are barely there without mascara! Would love lovely, dark ones like yours!

    Ooh I've not seen this before, really like the idea of it. It's a shame it smudged a little on you though, that would definitely put me off because mascaras always smudge on me!

      I think it was the idea that sold me on this too. I hate smudgey mascaras 🙁

    So nice to find your pretty beauty blog! (via Miss Makeup Magpie's comments ^^) My favorite mascara ran out recently and I wanted to replace it with something new. So far everything has smudged my eye lid afterwards, I guess I'm applying the second / third layers too quickly. 😀 But about your post then, I think it's very well thought and love that you have swatches too! I'm still quite new with beauty posts even though I've been blogging for 4 years already, so there's a lot to learn from others – like you. 🙂

    Will definitely bookmark your site now xx
