Today's user review comes from CocoChic, who you may remember from her fabulous makeup routine. Obviously, CocoChic knows makeup, and since I love Maybelline Great Lash, I was interested to read her review of the new Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara ($7.95) in the Beauty Product Junkies group. (Write your own reviews in the group, and I might post yours on BellaSugar too!) Here's what CocoChic had to say:
I am always searching for the perfect mascara. I have been using Sephora Volume Mascara for a couple of years now, and I really wanted to try those new rubbery brushes. I didn't buy the Cover Girl LashExact because I don't like the quality of their mascaras. So, I bought the new Maybelline Define-A-Lash in Very Black.

First of all, this packaging is really fun! The color of green is even brighter in person. It makes it very easy to spot in my makeup drawer! You can't really tell from the picture, but the little rubbery bristles are slightly different lengths. The middle ones are a bit shorter than the ends, so those lashes get really lengthened.
The first time I used this, I hated it. I'm used to a regular mascara brush, where I have to put on about five coats to get the look I like. I tried that with this, and it was a bad idea! I had to train myself to do one coat at a time slowly so that the lashes didn't clump together.
I also wiggle the wand from side to side as I apply it. Sometimes I still have to go back with a clean regular mascara brush, because it can get a tad clumpy. The clumps break up perfectly after that though. This stays on all day and doesn't flake off like Cover Girl's version. It's also not sticky and it doesn't turn my lashes to little sticks. I swear, my lashes have never looked so long! I will definitely be buying this again!
