Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions Waterproof-Review
For someone with short and blonde eyelashes, a great mascara is a must! I have seen and heard a lot about Maybeline XXL Pro Extensions Waterproof mascara on Youtube, and decided to try it out myself. This is a two step process mascara. Step #1 is white, and is applied just like regular mascara. This step is supposed to unlock unruly lashes and lock them into place. Step #2 is to apply the waterproof top coat to extend and lengthen the lashes. I found this very easy to apply, my one complaint about application is that if you have curled your lashes prior to application, which most of us do, you want to be careful that your lashes don't hit the top of your lid, leaving black dots on your nice eyeshadow job.
This mascara definitely gave me longer fuller looking lashes! My lashes have actually grown quite a bit in the last couple of months, due to a new eyelash conditioner I will be reviewing later, and this mascara really made them look quite beautiful.This mascara almost gives my lashes the appearance of false lashes, especially since I am used to blonde short lashes. It is certainly waterproof, I had to use my eye makeup remover 2 times to make sure it was all off. Which brings me to my next point, if you don't get all of the mascara off from the last application and apply the mascara as normal, you may have some clumping or "spider leg" appearance to your lashes. Some people are ok with this look, the eyelashes seem fuller, but I am not so I just make sure I get it all off at night.
This mascara also lasts a long time. I have fallen asleep in this mascara and woken up with beautiful lashes in the morning! :) Overall, I really enjoy the way this mascara makes my lashes look!
Bottom line- I will continue to use this mascara and purchase it again. Hope this helps!
