I've had this mascara for over a year now and I just though that you all need to know about this.  I received this as a Christmas gift from a friend and it is the very first Maybelline mascara I ever tried. You can only imagine how big my smile was, when I got this. 

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* the product did not dry out, I've had this since December 2009 (amazing!)
* the shape of the applicator is curvy and it's fat
* it's definitely smudge proof and waterproof
* can easily be removed with a makeup remover
* after having used this for so long, my lashes never fall out
* adds a good amount of volume
* it lengthens my lashes really well
* does a great job of holding out the curl of my lashes
* clump-free
* buildable
* can be bought locally on Maybelline counters

What I don't like...
* Absolutely nothing!

My rating: 5 / 5


(I did not curl my lashes)

my lashes became longer

This is mascara is absolutely awesome! I would highly recommend it. I use this everyday and it has never failed me.  This is my favorite or as others might say, "It's my HG Mascara" !

This is it for now.
