Mascara Monday: Maybelline Sky High Curves mascara

Rise and shine, cupcakes! It is another Monday. *insert groan audio clip here* How was everyone’s weekends? I went to an event and met up with some of my family members. Which is a big deal because my family has always been so spread out. Even my immediate family. My youngest sister and I just happened to both be wearing green. Ain’t that somethin’?

She’s a mess like her big sister. I also enjoyed the 80 degree weather here in Orlando, Florida. 5 degrees warmer and I will literally be running to the beach!

And I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire. Probably the best movie I have seen all year. I’ve had the soundtrack for awhile so it’s good to put a sound with….the movie.

Now for the mascara review….did this mascara really give me sky high curves? Or is just an exaggerated claim?

Maybelline Sky High Curves mascara

Price: 5 out of 5 (around $6. I got it as a BOGO buy from Walgreens )
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What it claims: “Captures each lash. Lengthens to the extreme. Sets daring curves beyond your natural lash. No clumps, no globs.(per packaging)

The truth:
I love it. Definitely an amazing mascara that gives me super long lashes!

What I loved about it:
The length…it’s pretty impeccable, yall!

What I didn’t like:
It was a little clump-a-licious but nothing that I couldn’t handle.

Overall: Often times we are so used to only looking at mascaras that are “new”. You know….the ones with commercials and pop up in magazines. But what about the veterans mascaras. The ones that came out a year or two ago. I decided to give Maybelline’s Sky High Curves mascara a whirl and lemme tell yall….I’m glad I did. This mascara is GREAT! I think it is absolutely phenomenal. I purchased this tube about 2 weeks ago and I am STILL wearing it religiously. Normally I am volume-seeker. I love thick lush lashes over length. But I managed to fall in love with a mascara that wasn’t so volume-enriched.

The wand is pretty decent. It almost looks like Maybelline Lash Stiletto. Almost.

If you seek length and curl…this mascara is IT! Yes, I said it. It even provides a bit of curl. Amazing to say the least.

I did notice that by the third coat it was a little clumpy-wumpy but that’s to be expected. And it wasn’t “insanely clumpy”. More like “Oh wow, your lashes look amazing and I’m looking past those clumps because….your lashes look so amazing.” Kinda like that.

And is it just me or do my lashes really look like they are reaching for the sky? LOL, I bet about 3 of yall laughed at that one.

LOL @ that eyelash that just won’t curl. It is seriously standing straight up. I kinda like it though. It’s funny lookin’ but it doesn’t bother me.

Would I recommend it?: Absolutely. It really is a great mascara. It’s affordable and can be found anywhere.

A loyal fan of this mascara? Never heard of it? Want it? Need it? Could care less. Tell me!!

Enjoy your Monday, family!

  • Kim @ A Life of Style

    I've never tried this one & I adore Maybelline mascaras. Guess I'll be picking this one up soon. Great review as always!!!


    you’re looking smaller girl! i know that has nothing to do with the mascara lol but it’s the first thing i thought when i opened this post :)

  • GS

    I had this mascara a couple of years ago, this is the mascara that made me believe that Maybelline make the best D/S mascara, it really lenghtens I could definitely see the difference the first time I wore it. The only bad thing is that I bought the waterproof version and it is the hardest thing to remove.

  • ishtastic

    You look preeeety!

  • Bsquared86

    I always see this mascara and walk right passed it . . . I think I’m going to pick some up!

  • slackey210

    Found this at the Dollar Tree over the weekend. Can't wait to give it a try.

  • Laura

    after reading this review I've been looking for this mascara. and I can't find it. Walgreens seems to only have all the new fancy mascaras. Did they stop making this?

  • B

    Laura—> I think they did stop making this. It's an older mascara and is being replaced by all of the newer ones. *tears* How this saddens me so!

  • Laura

    booo… that sucks! what would you recommend for a curling mascara now that this one is gone? I have been using XXL curl power lately. But I find if I'm not using a waterproof mascara my curl (from curler) goes away within a couple hours.

  • B

    Laura—> That's a tough one. This really is the only curling mascara that I would recommend. *sigh* I'm on the hunt for another one.

  • Kay Dell

    As a replacement for Maybelline’s Sky High Curves, I like Rimmel’s Sexy Curves mascara. I notice it’s still available on line altho’ I haven’t seen it in stores lately!

  • I miss this product! It was my very first mascara and I liked it :(
