The jewel in Maybelline’s crown are they’re mascaras, their renowned for their mascaras.
Mega Plush is different to their other mascaras, it’s a gel mousse formula, I thought this meant it would be a bit watery and smudgy but it’s not, lashes are left very soft looking, not crispy.
The wand is traditional bristles not plastic ones, which I like and it’s quite a big brush but it doesn’t seem as big as the Rocket.
It doesn’t flake or smudge which is great. The formula means it’s very easy to layer, one coat gives subtle definition but it layers really well for a more dramatic look. I’ve applied numerous coats and it never clumps and I think this is because of the spacing and the size of the bristles on the brush, the bristles are too close together and the bristles are different sizes.
The brush is unlike anything I’ve tried before because it’s flexible. I think the flexibility of the wand makes it really easy to zig-zag through the lashes and it makes really easy to hold the brush at the roots of the lashes and reach in the inner corners.
Overall, I like this mascara.
Have you tried it, what do you think?
