Happy Monday, beauties!
This is my first “Mini Review Monday” of 2018! Very exciting – I hope you like these mini reviews as much as I do.
If you’re not familiar with my MRM series, every (or almost every) Monday, I test out and review a new product for the purpose of writing a quick, mini review, to save you the hassle of reading huge long-winded blog posts or 20-minute long YouTube reviews.
Before I turn this into one of those long-winded blog posts, let’s get started, shall we?

- Cons: Mascara formula, brush, price
- Do I recommend this? No
Let me preface this review by saying that Maybelline is one of my all-time favourite beauty brands. I honestly think they make by far the best mascara, liquid lipstick and foundation in the industry. Unfortunately, this mascara doesn’t live up to the hype for me, personally.
The concept is wonderful, I haven’t seen a fiber mascara quite like this before at the drugstore. The fibers themselves are great, but the actual mascara formula is super wet and clumpy, and the brush wand part itself is very short so you can’t get into the inner/outer corners of your lashes. I love the fibers but paired with a different mascara. I am hanging onto this mascara for the fibers but at $12 a tube (just because it’s from the Gigi Hadid line, which is significantly more expensive than any other Maybelline line), it’s not worth it.
Have you tried this mascara? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
Thanks for reading and remember, you’re beautiful!
