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?
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.
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!
