Mascara Review- Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions

I was always one of those people that believed that if make up didn't come from a department store or Sephora, it was going to suck. Then I had to start paying for things myself, and realized that spending $30 on mascara that you had to throw out in 3 months was a little crazy. Various articles (see here and here) agree that you should save on mascara due to the short shelf life and the basic formula. I used Dior Show for the longest time, and then switched around from Benefit's Bad Gal, to a fiber extension mascara at Sephora (I tried finding it, but no luck). I loved it since my lashes are sparse, but not the price tag.

 Lately I have been using Maybelline Falsies, and I love it. A beauty adviser at Walgreen's had both the Dior show and this one on and most people said they liked the cheap one better! 
When I saw that Maybelline made a fiber extensions mascara, I had to try it!
I picked this Maybelline Illegal Length fiber extensions mascara up at Walgreens for under $10.
Here is it on one eye compared to a naked one. Please excuse my awesome hat...

On both
Overall I say it did it's job of adding .4mm of length. As you can see, I don't have much in the lash department. I have sensitive eyes though, and I did have a slight irritation but I'm not sure if it's from the change in season or the mascara. It did clump a little bit as well. I think I'll hang on to it for awhile!


  1. Holy badword!! It actually works because seriously, your lashes are so much longer! Impressive.

  2. cool!! Definitely want to try it...I love lashes!! You have pretty eyes :)

  3. I am definitely going to try this out! Putting it on my "to buy" list!
