010416-0099_1Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara $7

Another great bargain beauty choice is Maybelline’s Illegal Lengths line. This product promises up to 4 mm of additional length thanks to its fiber-fix brush and extending lash formula and it definitely delivers. Don’t expect a lot of volume from this product, but if clump-free length is your main concern, this is the way to go.

    I had to jump on the Maybelline bandwagon! I love the One by One Volum Express. I’m always asked if my lashes are real. It’s really good and super cheap. Like $7 cheap! Defnitely worth the money !

    Maybelline mascaras is good quality for the price but if you really want long, thick, voluminous lashes try the Chanel inimitable multidimention sophistique masquara. It cost $30 and this is a luxury for me. I have long lashes already and when I use this mascara, people think I have on fake lashes. I didn’t think mascara could make my eyes pop like this. I have not found a cheaper product to match my Chanel mascara yet.

      I’ll have to write inimitable mulitdimention down and hand it over to the sales person. I’ll have stuttering attack if I try to sound that out….and I don’t even stutter.

      Lol! I hope you like it!

    The Falsies is the best….Maybelline hit the mark with that one.

    Falsies by Maybeline…hands down!

  • I’m not a huge, let’s ‘pour on makeup by the loads ’till we look like Sideshow Bob’ kind of girl, but I’ve been applying the stuff since I was 12. It’s not rocket science, like some girls make it seem, but experimentation can be fun–so long as you’re not wearing a mask. That said, as great as lipsticks, shadows, liner and bronzers are, I like to feel that it’s mostly “Me” there, so I’ll keep my routine simple most days– Moisturized skin, followed by a light and creamy foundation to even out the skin tone, maybe some translucent powder (to set), a pump or two of a facial spritz (I make my own) to also set and keep things dewy (a combo of water, rosewater, glycerine), a popping (but natural looking) blush, and some kick-ass mascara that can go all day. I find that spending a little extra on foundation is the way to go when determining where to put your money (especially if you want something that stays put–cheap foundation comes off on everything and everyone), but you don’t really have to drop a wad on items like Mascara to get a decent look that lasts. It’s really about how you use it; ie: how many coats you apply, how dark the formula is, whether or not you curl your lashes, how long and conditioned your lashes are, etc. Personally, I find that Maybelline rarely fails in this department; so, I’ve got to go old school and recommend Maybelline Great Lash. It’s been around for decades, but I recently picked up their new Lots of Lashes version–guys, the wand is fabulous. Gives me those wet looking, sweeping babydoll lashes (defined, long and plump); and it’s less than $6 bucks. I haven’t tried the waterproof formula, but the standard formula on Great Lash really lasts–it doesn’t really smudge, unless you really get it sopping wet and start rubbing at it. I work out in it– no smudgies! Loving it.
