I've always wanted to try this since it first came out but was never on sale. I didn't want to pay $10, I'm cheap like that. Finally it went on sale for $6.99 so I grabbed one in "soft black". I usually go for blackest black but it wasn't on sale. And to make it more awesome, I completely forgot it wasn't "blackest black" and got a bit of a shock when I pulled the brush out and saw the odd greyish black colour. (What do ya expect from a girlie who has never seen different :D )

The wand was just a basic mascara wand, no curve, no fancy rubber, just a thin, straight brush.
It also stunk. Not like putrid swamp water, but like artificial roses or some stink. I wasn't expecting that either. I quite like the regular chemical makeup mascara smell, why add fragrance? Who the hell is going to talk to me and be like, "WOAH, what is that wonderful aroma emanating from your eyeballs?!? I want you!"
I was hoping for shiny ass lashes and was left saying what the shit?
(I don't know how to do side by side so hopefully this way works too)
There was no shiny and it just seemed pretty basic to me. Another downside is it didn't make my lashes fuller, only added a bit of length. I should have seen if there was a fullness/lengthening one with the shiny. But since this one didn't have the shiny.... NO DEAL MAYBELLINE! It could also be that I'm just used to a mascara having the "fullness" factor automatically, I didn't think to look for any volumizers. It also did hardly anything on my lower lashes.
Packaging: 4/5 It slightly resembles a heel!
Price: 3/5 only try it on sale
Product: 2/5 They were longer but I've had better from cheaper.
Overall: 2/5 If you want length, try it, but it stinks, literally and you can find better.
Would I buy again? Nah
I will take pictures again in a week just to make sure. I know most of the mascaras I buy usually need a week to get "broken" in, but I doubt the "patent" shine will magically appear by then.
