While I was visiting my little sister in Houston, she had gotten some makeup she wanted me to try. I had several mascaras, eyeshadows, lipsticks, etc. Of all the new things she had, this one stood out to me the most. Once I tried it, I knew I had to get one for myself. I was a little skeptical at first because I normally don't like really small or really big mascara wands but this one I actually loved.
This is Maybelline's Lash Discovery in Very Black in the waterproof version. I figured I would get waterproof because it's definitely going on my bottom lashes and I don't want any smudging throughout the day. Better safe than sorry.
This mascara has a tiny wand. When comparing this to the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, this one's twice the size in length (not width or thickness).
The formula is very black, hence the name. Also, notice this is a spiral type wand. This is what helps to really separate the lashes.
The idea behind this mascara is to find the tiniest lashes and coat them. This gives the appearance of longer, fuller lashes. Don't mistake this as a volumizing mascara because it's not. You won't get any volume or thickness, just the appearance of more lashes. This mascara also costs between the $5-7 range, so it's not too bad.
Notice I applied the mascara to the bottom lashes and also the inner corner where I wasn't able to get with my regular mascara. Also look at how the lashes aren't pulled together in clumps. Each lash is separated as much as possible and is coated with mascara.
I think this is a great mascara to have especially if you want to coat every single lash you have! I don't think this mascara is totally necessary but I think it does make a difference if you do have it.
Have you tried this mascara or one similar? How did you like it?
