I brought this because I was stuck in the Rome airport for another 30 minutes with no make-up what-so-ever and this came in a value pack of three. Picking it up, I thought "why not" as my lashes have never been that curly and the royal blue packaging was just sooo cute. I suprised by the brush shape. At first it seems a little scary (it's not like the normal stuff!) but, as I reached the half way down the tube mark, I had managed to get so used to it but trying on normal mascara would now be a chore! Although it doesn't offer much curl, it definatly does offer some curl, much more than any other mascara I have tried to date. The event that proved it was one of the best going? When my very make-up wise friend pulled the indentical mascara out of her make-up bag.
I bought this mascara because it was a bargain half price at Superdrug and i had been longing for one that came in a fancy package for ages! Mascara is just so expensive these days and although lads want girls to have thick lucious lashes do they know how much it costs? Anyway, i decided to get some and try it out. The metallicaly blue packaging and silver "wonder curl" writing looked very modern and i was quite excited to try it out. I don't know why bu ti thought that just because the packaging was nice, the product would be cool.. When i took the wand out it was a weird shape, Like an 'n' shape. I wasn't sure which way up to put the n because i hadn't been given any instructions and well.. this can't be brain surgery.. can it?! Each way worked just as well and once i had applied the 3rd coat my lashes did look thicker and curlier. This might have something to do with the fact that i could scrape the make-up off my lashes they were so glued with mascara. Throughout the day the mascara had good staying power and with a few check-up and wipes here and there i soon started liking the mascara. The next day when i woke up, even though i had used my trusty-never-fail eye make - up remover the night before i still had panda eyes. Rubbing the sleep out i noticed something quite scary. My lashes were falling out 2 or 3 at a time! Still, i had a wash and after much scrubbing of the eyes, had a clean pallette to start work on. When i applied the mascara this time though it really wasn't very good. My lashes didn't feel thick, they didn't look curly, infact i would rather describe them as a big sticky mess. I'd probably still rate this product because i'm not an expert at applying make-up and maybe somebody with the right hands would be able to tame this mascara. My lashes seemed to be damaged and I think they was actually in better condition when i used th
e good ol' lash curlers. So.. I won't be falling for the packaging again in such a hurry!! Oh dear.. will i ever stop wasting my money on half price stuff.. NOTE TO SELF: there's a reason why it's half price! Mel xx :)
I first started using Maybelline products when the adverts started starring Michelle Geller. I thought to myself a good model for a good product. Well not as good as they make out! I have ever such long lashes which ok lots of women would die for, but they aren't that nice when you can't do anything with them. I have tried so many different mascaras in a wide range of prices and have never found one that i am entirely happy with. They are either too thick , too gloopy , too sticky , too dry etc..... When the Maybelline Wonder Curl was advertised i thought great another mascara that won't work and was i right ?Well to an extent yes but i discoverd an interesting fact about the wonder curl mascara. I purchased this mascara for £5.95 which is a very reasonable price i think. I got up the next morning all ready to try out the new mascara and what a surprise it failed. No curly lashes just straight sticking out things , very unattractive! I must say i wasn't really surprised but i thought i'd give it a another go. I went down to the town and purchased the Maybelline Waterproof Wonder Curl Mascara. You are probably thinking what is the difference if one doesn't work then none will. I put it on the next morning and to my ultimate amazement i had lovely long curled lashes. They looked so good i went out in to the garden where my partner was to show him . He agreed they looked lovely and said they would get the attention of any man just by blinking.(so i was to stay away from all men!!!!!)lol! Another good thing about this mascara is that after a few hours it doesn't look dull and boring and your lashes won't droop, from the minute you apply it to the minute you remove it it will stay looking fresh. It is easily removed with a gentle make-up remover. You don't need to scrub at your eyes as you do with some removers when trying to remove waterproof make-up, just a very gentle swe
eping motion will do the trick. From this day forward i have used this mascara and it is yet to fail. It just goes to show what a big difference there is between the twoand it still at a great price of just £5.95. A small price to pay for such big lashes! I would recommend the waterproof one to everyone but steer clear of the normal one , doesn't do it's job.
This is the third "curly" mascara that I've used that hasn't really worked and now I think I've given up. I was so excited when I bought this product because I'd heard that Maybelline mascara was really effective and a favorite with supermodels. Unfortunately, my excitement was wasted because, after applying it without using curlers first, nothing happened. It did make my lashes look good though, it went on easily without any clumpiness and was exactly the right texture to cover my lashes really well so that I just needed one coat. The mascara also holds curl really really well when you've used a eyelash curler before applying the product. It lasts really well too and doesn't leave any fibres or residue on your face throughout the day. I used the waterproof version and it really does stay put very well as colour and texture are concerned, but, the curl just dissapears once those lashes get soggy, even in the rain. However, it is still a very good mascara for what you pay. If you're still looking for a mascara that curls a little bit better than most, Loreal's "Le Grand Curl" is the best I've tried so far, but it's a bit pricier than most (I think I paid about £5/6). Personally, I'm going to resort to having an eyelash perm that I've seen advertised at "The Tanning Shop" for £17.99. Till I get it done I'm just going to keep on fantasising about having curly lashes when i wake up, curly lashes in the rain, never having to use my curlers again or have nightmares about forgetting them when i go away...
I bought this mascara 2 months ago thinking I'd be able to stop using my eyelash curlers, well, I'm still using them but the mascar is still great. The wand it curved and dead easy to apply, it only takes a couple of strokes and doesn't clog. The tube is quite skinny and easily slips into the smallest of make up bags, and the mascara comes in a range of all the usual colours from brown black, to black to brown. It's reasonably priced and lasts a fair ammount of time. All in all wonder curl is a good performer, although it doesn't seem to curl my lashes.
I recently noticed Maybelline New York range of make- up. I thought I would try it and bought a Full N Soft mascara which makes your eyelashes look really long with only two coats, and best thing of all it is easy to remove. I also got a Cool Effect cream eye color which is easy to apply and comes in a great choice of colours, next time I need foundation I think I will try Maybelline New York range because they seem good value for money and seem very easy to remove unlike a lot of other brands.
Having stick straight eyelashes, I rushed to buy this the minute it came out. Hoping for freedom from the tyranny of fiddling with eyelash curlers I tried it out expectantly. I was, to put it mildly, disappointed. Much discussion on various beauty boards on both side of the atlantic ensued, as women from several continents and many nations searched for a way to make this flipping stuff work. Some reported that by using on top of lashes in a downward sweep first and letting that dry, a small miracle would be wrought. Not on my lashes it wasn't (I thought I noticed a small amount of curl with that technique, but decided that was hope triumphing over evidence) Disgusted I threw the blue tube to the back fo a drawer. Many months later, rummaging around for some mascara I came across this and used it in desperation. It worked. Yup. It curled quite remarkably. Not as effectively as a good session with the eyelash curlers, I must admit, but definitely curl. What had happened in those months was that the mascara had dried out quite a bit. When it was new perhaps it was just to wet to set/hold a curl? I don't know. I just know that at first it didn't work, then it did. Fluke? Not at all. I've since bought 2 more tubes with exactly the same results Other than that, the black (the only colour I use) is a good dark shade, it's non-irritating (to me) and a tube lasts an average amount of time, making this pretty good value.
Maybelline mascara is around £5.00 so although its not the cheapest its certainly not the most expensive. The packaging is quite attractive and eye catching. The mascara is very easy to apply, gives you great definition and doesn't clump or smudge. I have tried many mascaras and most of them do not show up very well. This one is definately one of the better ones and is great value for money. The black mascara really stands out but without being over the top. I thoroughly recommend it, it looks great just like the advert says.
This product does work! I've been using it for several months and I'm sticking to it! As a contact lens wearer, I have to be careful and avoid mascaras with fibres and such but I haven't had any problem with Wonder Curl. I have found the waterproof version to be the most effective, it curls my VERY straight eyelashes and it stays on - no more panda eyes! The curl effect is noticable although maybe not a strong enough result for eyelash curler users and I have found that after regular use my naked lashes are no longer poker straight ( an added bonus ) I really would advise not to reject Wonder Curl until you've tried it.
OOOOOH thought I, when I saw an ad for Maybelline Wonder Curl Mascara, a mascara that curls your lashes, WAY HEY! I'll have some of that!! No more need for eye pinching lash curlers for me, so out went I to Boots and purchased me some of that miracle make up. I got home and immediately went upstairs to try it out. I applied it, all was going well, nice brush, the mascara's consistency wasn't too bad and it went on well. Then I sat back and waited for the said miracle and............nothing, zip, zilch. It looked ok no clumps no lumps, nice dark lashes but ...not a curl in sight. I'm not too disappointed however, it's still a good mascara but I wont be getting rid of my curlers just yet, oh well, back to putting my eyelids in a vice!!
Magic curly mascara, thought I. Woo hoo. No more bloody curlers, and big flappy lashes. Who could ask for anything more? So, I trotted off to Superdrug, got a tube of the stuff and shoved my existing mascara to one side. I used the Maybelline for a week or so, and didn't notice all that much difference, so I decided to try an experiment. Yup. You guessed it. I wandered round for the next couple of days wearing different mascara on each eye. And could you tell the difference? Could you hell. It didn't curl my lashes one bit. Mascara's a difficult thing. I'm always tempted to buy very expensive makeup, but there's so little difference between, say, a Chanel mascara and a Rimmel one, that I always feel a bit bad if I do shell out. The Maybelline didn't do what it said it would, but it was perfectly servicable, so I'd probably buy it again. Do beware though. The one difference I have noticed is that the cheaper brands do tend to go a bit thick and clumpy in the tube ages before the more expensive ones do. It barely matters; you should always chuck them out after a couple of months anyway. Save your pennies, get the Maybelline, but don't expect it to work the miracles it says it will.
