I try to be frugal at times with mascara. Why spend a ton when you can get the same thing for cheaper? Oh who am I kidding, I've been known to spend $30 on mascara without batting a lash (har har har).
I have pretty good lashes, they're long and full but they have blonde tips and stick straight out. I love to wear mascara everyday, and I love mascaras that give me doll-like lashes without looking freaky.
When I found Prestige's "My Biggest Lashes- Big Lash Effect Mascara" (MBL) at the drugstore, I couldn't resist it's cute pink packaging and name. Besides, that tagline promises the doll-like lashes that I want.
The brush is pretty big, like Diorshow. The brush was able to get every little hair but wasn't all that big that it was smudging against my skin.
Hello naked eye!
After one coat of MBL
After two coats of MBL, lashes separated. Look into my eye, you're getting sleepyyyyyy.
I'm seriously hooked! I wasn't expecting a mascara that performs as good as my holy grail mascara Diorshow Iconic, if not better. It made my lashes really longggggg and curled. The best was that my lashes didn't fall flat during the day. I also love that it's a super rich black (MBL comes in brown too). This mascara only really needs one coat to look really good. I tried three and it turned into Tammy Fay Baker...
Pros- it REALLY lengthens, thickens, darkens, curls, lasts all day without smudging , curl lasts all day.
Cons- lashes are a bit stiff but this is how it holds the curl, you need a good eye makeup remover to get it all off.
Overall, I love MBL and would totally pay a higher price than the $6.50 that it costs. I couldn't find MBL at Target, but they carry Prestige MBL at Rite Aid.
