An Unusual Mascara Combination

I faced that awful situation where half way through my make up routine I had discovered that my mascara had run out if your like me this is literally the end of the world, without mascara my face full of make up just doesn't look right. It also meant that I had to reach out to the two mascaras that I have not really been loving and was quite reluctant to even use.

Here is a lesson to be learned... never give up on something so easily it will fight to win your love back and this is what the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara has done. The brush is small, light and when removing it from the bottle there is no product clogged up on the spooly which is great and something you do not see in many mascaras, it also means that it seperates the lashes rather than creating that spidery look. 

I am a huge fan of super thick lashes, I apply my mascara far too many times each day, this was where I fell out of love with this product immediately as you cannot create thickness. Little did I know that this would be a fantastic combination with the Revolution Amazing Volume Mascara, once again I am not a lover of this mascara on its own as it didn't add a curl or length to my lashes. But the two together just works, the Maybelline adds the length and curl, almost giving a slight false lash look and the Revolution adds the thickness. 

So I guess the moral to my blog post today is don't give up on a product so easily, I have certainly learned my lesson.


  1. I wasn't a huge fan of this mascara either, but I used mine up anyway. I doubt I'd buy it again but it's nice to know it can work!

    1. I used to love this mascara then the second time around I hated it. If your looking for one to separate the lashes before using another mascara then I think it does a great job. xxx

  2. ah i never think about combining mascaras! great post!
