Happy Monday, friends!!! I am so excited about this mascara. I almost cracked my teeth in Target trying to do a backflip in excitement. I am a huuuge fan of Maybelline’s mascaras. The XXL Curl Power and Colossal Volum’Express are two of my favorite mascaras ever! Wondering if XXL Extensions is just as good? Better? A “hope I saved the receipt” buy? Check out the review below….
Price: 5 out of 5 (about $6)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What it claims: This mascara says that Step 1 will uncross unruly lashes and lock them into place and that step 2 will extend and lengthen lashes beyond belief.
The truth: It couldn’t be more right! It did all of that beyond my expectations!
What I loved about it: If you aren’t used to Maybeline’s XXL-type mascaras than getting used to the dual sided wand may take some time. For me, I love it! Step 1 (the primer) is white and a small coat of it will prep your lashes up beautifully. And YES! This wand and formula actually “uncrossed” my lashes.
What I didn’t like: I can’t say anything negative about this mascara. I am truly in love!
Overall: I love love loooove this mascara. I initally thought that it would resemble Imju Fiberwig since it had “XX-Trem Length Microfiber” on the packaging. I thought that I would get those fiber-esque pieces attaching on to my lashes but that really isn’t the case. Which is fine with me, of course. I will, however, mention that you aren’t going to get a TON of curl from this mascara. In the video I explain how you can maximize the curl effect while getting the crazy length XXL Extensions give you.
Would I recommend it: Absolutely. This is probably one of the best if not THE BEST lengethning mascaras that I have ever come across. Maybelline, does it again!!! But uh—don’t go bother trying to find it on the website. I guess Maybelline is on CP time when it comes to updating their website. Haaa!!
And uh don’t be a silly duck like me and forget to peel off the $2-off coupon:
