Mascara Monday – @Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

February 10, 2020

For me, a perfect mascara is hard to find. What has seemed impossible is finding a perfect mascara with a drugstore price tag. So, today I’m testing the @maybelline Total Temptation Mascara ($10.49 – in hopes that I’ve found the one!

What it claims:

🔘 Build on bold volume to create irresistibly soft, separated, and fluffy lashes coat after coat

🔘 Features a creamy and whipped formula enriched with coconut extract

My experience:

🔘 The sample I received is of the shade “Very Black.”

🔘 Photo three (3) is with one (1) coat on my right eye. Photo four (4) is with two (2) coats on my right eye. Photos five (5) and six (6) are with two (2) coats on both eyes.

👍🏻 I enjoy the brush. I can get a full single coat on my top and bottom lashes without clumping or having to dip back into the tube.

👍🏻👎🏻 I think it gives good curl, length and volume. However, I don’t think it gives great curl, length, or volume.

👍🏻 I’ve worn this all day on a couple of occasions and my lashes looked just as nice at the end of the night as they did right after application.

👎🏻 I experienced a slight amount of transfer on my under eye.

My verdict?

This was nice enough to make me want to try more mascaras from @maybelline, but not want to buy a full-size of this particular one. It did a lot well, but didn’t pack nearly enough of a punch for my preference.
