Mascara Monday: Prestige My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect mascara

So remember that time I reviewed Prestige’s My Waterproof Lashes mascara? Well, My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect is the mascara that came alongside that one. I got those 2 mascaras in a pack together. Prestige Cosmetics has yet to really woo me with their mascaras but I’ve still got hope. Some brands do great in other beauty bits and just aren’t all that in mascaras. I can live with that. But come on, I need at least ONE good mascara from ya, Prestige. Help a sista out.


*crosses fingers*

Price: $6.50 at Ulta and
Packaging (brush wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5

What It Claims: “Full, plush brush coats each lash, intense, long lasting color, one coat application” (source)

The Truth: *yawn* This mascara put me to sleep. There’s nothing to it.

What I Loved About It: It’s got a decent price point.

What I Didn’t Like: It’s one of those mascaras that doesn’t provide much of anything at one coat or 3 coats.

Overall: Oh boy. I’m disappointed, Prestige. I expected this one to be a winner. I mean, when you give a mascara a name like My Biggest Lashes, you kinda expect some kind of ooomph. I got anything but that from this mascara. And that made me sad. The wand is a plush brush and it’s not one of my favorite type of wands.


Can you effectively apply mascara with it? Absolutely. I did, however, struggle with the mascara’s formula. It’s not too thick or too thin but it’s got a barely there feel to it. Okay, it’s not invisible but it’s the kind of mascara that when you apply a coat to your lashes, you look at your lashes to see if you actually applied anything. It’s weird stuff, I tell ya and I can’t make this stuff up. I think it’s the large brush and its inability to pick up enough mascara that created this problem. Either way, I just know that after I would apply 3 coats, I would have some serious “barely there” mascara-covered lashes. Boo.

And even when you get the mascara on, it seems to slowly disappear throughout the day and as it disappears, it flakes in the process. Boo and double-boo. I don’t have much else to say about this mascara except that even though it’s on the cheaper side, it may not be worth your pennies.

Lashes after 3 coats


Do I recommend it?: Nope. I’d pass by this one.


Have you tried any  Prestige mascaras? Whatcha think about this one?

  • It’s a shame this mascara didn’t work for you! I had it back in the summer and it quickly became one of my favorites. It gave me HUGE lashes and wore wonderfully. Everyone’s lashes are different though.

      Oh booo. Maybe I got a bad tube? You never know with mascaras. Different strokes for different folx. So glad that it worked for you!

  • I bought that two-pack as well, but I still haven’t opened mine – I just have so many mascaras open already. Though nothing compared to you, I’m sure :) Now I don’t know if I’ll even bother, maybe I should just give it away.

  • I had to look twice to see that the second one was the “after” photo. Thanks for the review!

    I really appreciate that you review some of the lesser known mascaras! It gives me a ton of options to choose from! And may I say, it’s kinda pathetic how excited I get for Mascara Monday. Just saying. Haha! Keep the awesome reviews coming! :)

    • Brittany

      Pathetic? Um noooo!!!! People caring about Mascara Monday is what keeps me goin’ yo!

  • gio

    This looks so disappointing! I’ll skip it, thanks for the review.

  • Aw man, what a bummer! That is some weak sauce, Prestige! I remember liking My Longest Lashes (I think that was it, white tube with sage green lettering) but not enough to be a repeat purchase.

    • Brittany

      Not weak sauce. I kinda died on that one. Love you, Mimi!

  • Pamela

    Oh, that looks terrible! LOL… I guess they’re going for the “natural” look?

    • Brittany

      Maybeeeee. And I’m just so not a “natural lashes” kind of gal.

  • OK B, I know you’re always honest, but I feel like you’re being really REALLY honest in your mascara reviews lately, and I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate it! I hardly ever find mascaras I like, and just like your opinion with this one– I did NOT love it! Thanks for always pointing us in the right direction!

    • Brittany

      XOXO – thanks mama!

  • That’s it? That’s sad. Thanks, but I’ll pass.

  • OSHH

    LOL that is how I felt about Hard Candy’s 1000 lash fiber mascara, chile I could even get 10 lashes out of it, I was so disappointed.

    • OSHH


  • I’ve never even heard of this mascara but from the looks of it I’ll pass lol

  • hi..
