Maybelline XXL Extensions

I recently finished two Blink+Go mascaras which I posted about here. It was a fabulous mascara but I fancied a change so I had a browse on Cheapsmells (absolutely amazing website) and came across this one.....



Maybelline XXL Extensions.

Now I have heard, seen and used the original Maybelline XXL mascara before but this was many years ago, the reason this caught my eye is that it claims to have 'X-tra' micro-fibre extensions making lashes up to 85% longer, it comes with two wands as you are meant to apply it in two steps: Step 1: Tames lashes - Step 2: Extends lashes.....


This cost me £3.99 FREE delivery. Here is what it looks like on.....


1. No mascara at all (horrible).

2. Microfiber base coat.

3. One sweep of the lash-extending topcoat.

4. Another sweep of the lash-extending topcoat.

I am slightly disappointed, yes it is a good, easy to use mascara but it didn't have the WOW effect I was expecting, my lashes didn't look longer than they normally do with most mascaras, saying this I will use it for work etc but I was hoping for a little bit more length and/or volume.

Do you have any recommendations for me for a fab WOW mascara?

  1. I hate it when a mascara or anything doesn't live up to what they have said to do. I did a mascara review and one of my favourite was the clinique lengthening one, although it doesn't make them thick it really is good at lengthening. xx

    1. I think I would prefer length over volume :) I thought this one would be great because of the extensions!

  2. It costs a fortune but the DiorShow New Look is the best mascara I've ever seen. I think the effect of this one isn't bad for the price, but what a palaver with a basecoat and everything!

    1. I totally agree it cost peanuts so I can't complain this does sell online and in stores ie Boots etc for £6.99. I will have to have a google about the DiorShow - the word Show makes me think amazing length!

  3. I always come back to Max Factor false lashe effect. Its the best one I've ever found and poor you its rubbish when you spend your money and the product isn't very good.

    1. I have heard looaadddsss about the MaxFactor but I have never used it, I should try it out definitly! At lest this only cost a few pounds, I would have been upset if I had spent a fortune!

  4. I'm with Maddy on the Maxfactor! The one in the purple tube (I think it does length and volume?) is fantastical, and actually gets people asking me if I'm wearing falsies! Which I'm not, because I don't know ow to apply them...

  5. The bourjois one with the rotating brush is really good for length takes a few tries to master but really gives the false lash effect I use that then Illamasqua masquara for volume which tbh u dnt need but I like thick thick lashes xx
