Don’t you love it when a brand goes the extra mile in regards to press release presentation? Check out the little mystery box that arrived just last week:
Surprise! It isn’t a sprinkling of anthrax or an ex-co-worker’s severed hand (a girl can only wish) but Maybelline’s new Illegal Lengths fibre extensions mascara, R100:
I tried the washable one (i.e. the one that wasn’t waterproof) and while it didn’t come even close to looking like I’d gotten extensions, it did a decent job of creating very defined slightly longer-looking lashes. It doesn’t, however, volumise in the least, so if you’re all about drama, this isn’t for you.
While I could see the fibres in the formula if I looked really closely, they aren’t in great concentration but in a way this is a good thing; I’ve tried fibre-heavy formulas in the past and found they ended up looking clumpy. Not so with this little guy. Another plus? When your lashes dry, it doesn’t flake in the least. Phew!
Have you given this fun lovin’ criminal a bash? If so, let me know your thoughts.
