User Review: CocoChic on Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara

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.

For the rest of her review and a photo of the results,

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!

I just bought this Mascara on sale for $4.95, and I liked it so much better than the regular "pink and green" Mabelline mascara. I think it clumps less than a lot of mascaras out there, and really lengthens your lashes. I would also like to see a waterproof version, but I have taken a shower and come out without those "raccoon" eyes with this product, so I wasn't too worried : )

I tried the cover girl version a while back and then the Maybelline one with the comb brush, both of which clumped hideously. Maybe I will try this one.

Yumemiru, Yes! I wasted my $ on CG, too...and it flaked off bad on me, too! I wear contacts, so the CG flakes were actually painful! I have a coupon floating around for this stuff, too, so I think I'll mosey on down to CVS and snag me some!

I have the CG Lash Exact and I like how it goes on and it also lasts for the most part, but it always flakes off. My bf always says it looks like I have cookie crumbs under my eyes when I wear it. I like Maybelline mascara so I'll definitely have to try this one out.

Actually I have CG Lash Exact and am totally in love with it. I have been using it for a year almost now and get compliments on my eyes all the time..never tried any of their other mascaras, but Lash Exact is awesome!

I just recently bought this mascara. I don't usally stray away from brands I trust, but this caught my eye (no pun intended) and i'm glad because I love it and the price isn't that bad either!

At first before I finished your whole review I thought it was more trouble than it was worth but then you give it good reviews on not flaking and giving a lot of length, so I don't know, I'm on the fence with this one but I wouldn't really have much to lose if I don't like it at $7.95! I'm wondering if there is a really good mascara that actually 'don't' clump! Well at least all that work worked, your eyes look awesome! :D

This looks pretty good. I actually love my Mascara X from MAC, but I might just give this a try.. probably a lot cheaper than $14. Ha..

Give me Max Factor Lash Perfection anytime! I might try this but it would have to be sensational for me to give up the Max!!
