Advantages: A good price, its promises ring true
Disadvantages: Need more than one shade to be available
After using the Great Lash and Volume Express mascaras from Maybelline they both seem very good, and the Define-A-Lash is no exception.
The mascara comes in a lime green tube with simple white writing on it. Simple design but the colour catches your eye immediatly. As with most mascaras the lash brush is fixed to the screw top lid, but even the wand is the same shade of green. Much more interesting than the usual black colour. But as you use it more and more the green colour is covered with mascara. But still :)
The mascara is a good quality. It claims to gove no clumps, and thats true. Even when it was running out after 4/5months of daily use, i still had no clumps. You can easily apply 2 coats with no clumps, but anymore and as you would expect it gets too thick, but this is pretty true of most mascaras. A tip worth noting is that Maybelline do say that if you want to apply more than one coat do not let the mascar dry inbetween. If you follow this rule, you will be clump free.
The brush is shaped 'to the lash' and picks ups just the right amount of mascara to coat the lashes with the first application. The burch is flexible and doesnt pull the lashes which I have found some do with, as you are applying. The brush and mascara itself sweep of the lashes easily. After applying my lashes looked longer and fuller and as it defines each lash it makes it look like you have even more lashes! Amazing!
It only comes in Black and Black Waterproof and I got the standard. Would be nice to have a few more shades as I do like to use a brown mascara for a more natural look some days. The tube is priced at just over £8 in most pharmacies, and for the £8 you get 6ml. This 6ml does last ages as you do only need one of two coats so for the £8 you get months of use.
Summary: A great mascara that gives longer, fuller and more defined lashes
