Maybelline Long Extreme Double Stretch Mascara

Long, beautiful lashes - how I wish I had them. Well, there's nothing a little bit of makeup can't fix! :D My recent mascara is Maybelline's Long Extreme Double Stretch Mascara in Black. It's a smudge-proof mascara that promises 85% lashes that lasts up to 24 hours. Let's see if it can live up to its promises.

Maybelline Long Extreme Double Stretch Mascara in Black

Step 1: Apply the base coat. This stretches lashes up to 85% longer.

Step 2: Apply the top coat. This seals the length for up to 24 hours.

The result:

From super short and sparse lashes, to visibly longer lashes!

Why I love it:
  • The applicator works perfectly for the mascara's formula, so there's little room for clumps.
  • Unless you layer it on many times, this would not cause your lashes to look clumpy and spidery.
  • It lengthens my lashes, just as it promised.
  • It does not smudge nor flake.
  • It is not waterproof, which makes it very easy to remove. Just use warm water to wash it off!

If you're looking for some volumizing effect from this mascara, then you'd be disappointed because it does not add volume to your lashes. It does its job well in lengthening though. However, I don't know if this will be discontinued soon, because it's not included in the recent issue of Maybelline's Beauty Buzz (online newsletter of Maybelline Philippines). If you love this product, you better buy now thru May 15, 2011. Maybelline is having their Fashion Week Sale, which entitles us all to have 30% off discount on products above P249.00.

I like Maybelline mascaras, and I hope they would bring in and not phase out their non-waterproof mascaras. I prefer this version because I prefer wearing light eye makeup for everyday use, and that I have a hard time removing waterproof mascara.

Would I repurchase? Yes, if it's on sale!
Price: P599.00
Available at Landmark, SM Department Stores, Watsons, and Robinsons Department Stores nationwide.

Do you like Maybelline, too? What's your favorite Maybelline mascara/product? :)

  3. oh! i forgot. you already did! :))) my bad! :D i just remembered it the time i clicked on post comment. hahahaha

  4. Great review! Maybelline is my go-to brand for mascaras. I used to always buy their Great Lash mascara (Waterproof: Very Black) but since they stopped selling it in malls here, I now get their Stiletto mascara instead. :-)

  5. Hi Charles, I used Maybelline Unstoppable Mascara too before it got discontinued. I'm so lazy when it comes to removing makeup, and that mascara made my life easier. haha :D The Lash Stiletto Mascara looks like a great buy! I haven't tried the Magnum mascara though. :)

    Hi Elle, I liked your review on the Lash Stiletto Mascara. It super lengthened your lashes!

    Hello Brian Joanne, my favorite makeup artist friend also used the same Great Lash Mascara for his clients. I wish Maybelline did not discontinue such great products. The Lash Stiletto Mascara looks very promising, lots of rave reviews about it! :)
