Maybelline Jade Stretch & Define Mascara


I need a new mascara. A friend recommended me the Maybelline mascara.
In the German one the mascara is called Strech & Define.
I have bought the mascara in the chemist's shop "Rossmann". It has cost me to 9.95 euros. A bottle has 6.5 ml contents.
This is quite a lot of money, but if the mascara feels well, I spend the money with pleasure.


Information from the Internet:
Define-A-Lash mascara combines a shaped-to-the-lash brush and built-in clump-remover for clump-free length and perfect definition.


The test!

There is the mascara in the colours Black, Brown and Blue. I have decided on black.

The slender green mascara is optically a real highlight and falls with it positively on in the makeup bag. The bottle lies well and useful in the hand.

The little brush is like with every mascara the most important.
In contrast to customary mascara a small little brush from rubber has of the Stretch & Define. This is not bad, only a little bit need getting used to. By the soft rubber it bends the little brush and sometimes refuses to go back to the bottle. With pull out of the bottle one needs a little bit more strength.
Optically the little brush looks like a sting reinforced caterpillar. Looks already a little bit funny, but if one has thus the perfect eyelash result, I take such victims with pleasure on myself.

With pull out of the little brush enough mascara gets stuck to paint an eye. I paint to me always only the upper eyelash wreath and for it it is enough always.

This paint formed themselves rather difficultly as I find. By the fact that the little brush is adaptable it also bends in the eyelashes. I find this rather disagreeable because I have thus no real contact with the eyelashes.
If I attached the little brush in the eyelash wreath, it bends away. However, thus I cannot paint the eyelashes properly because I lack the feeling. If I press then a little more firmly, the little brush bends even more. Thus it lasts twice as long than with a customary mascara, until I have the desired result.

The colour itself is great. The black is nicely full and looks just good.

The creamy mascara extends the eyelashes clearly. Nice during the first line one notes the difference.
But from because of with this mascara there are no aviation legs and lumps in the eyelashes. My eyelashes were separated with this mascara never perfectly and were defined. Two or three eyelashes mostly stick together.

The durability of the mascara as feels well as with other mascaras. He gets over one shopping day just as one day with a toddler. If one itself short over the eyes wipes the hands are not equally black.

This remove the mascara proceeds fast and simply. In contrast to my other mascara it even simply goes. It surely to to go three spots with the watered Pad about the eyelashes. I like this.

The compatibility very feels well. There are no irritations in the eye. But I also wear neither glasses nor contact lenses.


Well, the mascara is quite nice, but is not perfect - at least not for me. I find the little brush rather obstructively as conducive and will remain quite dear furthermore with firm little brushes.
I like the length of the painted eyelashes well if the eyelashes were separated yet really perfectly, he would be also worth his money.
I have resigned the mascara for half a price to my friend. She has been glad and I get rid of him.
