Last week, I was performing a face treatment on a client, and noticed that her lashes were exceptionally long. At first, I thought she was wearing lash extensions, but as I removed the mascara, it dawned on me that it was all mascara! After I'd removed the product, she was only left with average length lashes. So, I asked her what mascara she used. She told me it was Maybelline Intense XXL.
Being a sucker for anything that promises longer lashes, I went out and purchased some. I usually wear KISS or L’Oreal Double Extend. I'm sure there are better mascaras, but I wear contacts, and many mascaras sting my eyes. I tried Maybelline on one eye and L’Oreal on the other. As usual, the L’Oreal lash was really clumpy and spidery. The Maybelline brand seemed to go on smoother and clump less. Also, it curled my lashes more. After measuring, the Maybelline eyelash was a tad longer. Finally, I tried the husband test. He commented that my lashes looked longer, and gave me a peck on the cheek. Case closed. If your husband notices, it must be worth giving a try.
Winner: Maybelline Intense XXL.
