Definitely not born for it

Advantageslooks good, lengthens lashes, does not smudge or crumble

Disadvantagestime-consuming application, ackward application due to tube design

"Maybe it is because I am not really a make-up person. Maybe it is the commercial that made my stomach turn when that beautiful model applies a base coat of this mascara to her lashes. Or maybe, just maybe, it is the product itself that has left me far from thrilled and quite disappointed. When this mascara first came out, I was extremely sceptical of its merits. But then the Ciao reviews came pouring out, praising it with no end. Consequently, when ..." Read review

Grey Eyelashes?

AdvantagesWorks pretty well at first, pretty good volume

DisadvantagesBit of a hassle. Black runs out before the white!

"...bad). I have used the Maybelline brand before, including other mascaras of theirs, and feel it to be trustworthy. It comes attractively packaged in a long thin tube, each end a different colour, so in no way can you mix them up! The one in the photo here is black and white, my purchase was 'waterproof black', so the tube I have is silver-blue and white. One of the first things you will realise is that because the tube is split in half, it won't ..." Read review

Bye Bye Panda eyes!

AdvantagesSeperates lashes and doesn't clog

DisadvantagesDidn't make my lashes look much longer

"...women’s magazines. The 1960’s saw Maybelline introduce the first tube mascara with brush, which made applying so much easier. L’Oreal bought Maybelline in 1996 and finally in1998 Maybelline hit the UK. PRODUCT STATEMENT This is a 2-step process with a exclusive XXL volume and length formula that contains a double dose of gentle micro-fibres for lashes that look over-the-top gorgeous in just 2 easy steps: Step1… New intense length… With an ..."

50% longer???!!!

AdvantagesNo smudging. Easy to remove

DisadvantagesQuite pricey

"...by Maybelline. I have used Maybelline mascaras before, and especially like the double ended ones-white on one brush and the black mascara on the other brush, so this looked a grand idea!! This mascara promises that it will add 50% more volume and extra length. So, with intense volume and length added to my eyelashes, I was expecting to have that false eyelash/Betty Boop look, especially when it states that you can look shamelessly over the top ..."

I definetly wasn't born with it

AdvantagesGreat lashes

DisadvantagesCost, time consuming

"...one evening I encountered a Maybelline advert. The product looked so good, my initial reaction was that it was lies intended to make you buy the product for a ludicrous price. My second reaction was well maybe it does work, guess I'll never know until I try. So as a rather odd sequence of events, off I headed to Superdrug to buy the mascara that would change my life, sorry meant lashes. When I arrived at Superdrug I was unsurprised to find a large ..."

Well at least i've tried it!

AdvantagesGood Black side, nicely seperated lashes

DisadvantagesCrappy White side, not promised results.

"...- It's time to try Maybelline Intense XXL Volume & Length Mascara our most outrageous lash look with up to 10x the volume and 50% more length." WOW! Sounds great, doesn't it? I was excited. Opening the tube of the primer, i was greeted with a flimsy looking brush, that certinly didn't look capable of much. But I didn't give up yet, I would give it a fair chance. On application, no white showed on my lashes at all. This was a change from my L'oreal ..." Read review

Double xl I think NOT

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesTime consuming, tricky to apply, mediocre results

"When this product first came out I was so excited! I begged my mum for some for Christmas and when I got it it was my favourite thing I got never mind anything else! It was the first of its kind and the advert on the TV was brilliant and promised amazingly long eye lashes! However... The packaging is well, shall we say boring? I have a beautiful make up bag crammed full of good stuff and this looks cheap and nasty. Sorry to be nit picking ..." Read review

Lashings of Lashes!

AdvantagesLonger lashes, hardly any clumps

DisadvantagesQuite pricy when not on special offer

"...great introductory price of the Maybelline XXL mascara. I've used Maybelline mascaras before, and I've always been really impressed - they last longer than cheaper brands like Rimmel or Collection 2000, but they do a really great job for the price. I was quite optimistic about this one. After a small moment of inner turmoil over which colour to choose, Extra Brown or Extra Black, I plumped for Extra Black from Boots for £5.99 (RRP £7.99), and ..." Read review

Advantagesgives you great lashes

Disadvantagesprice

"ok, this is the maybelline xxl volume length microfiber mascara, i know what your thinking, sounds impressive with a name like that its got to be good. lets see: buying: i bought this mascara after the disaster of the shocking volume one from loreal which i hated! any way i got this one from my local chemist, the girl on the counter told me it was great and her eyes looked really good so i thought id give it a go. It was a whopping £15.99 however ..." Read review

Maybe its because she spent all day applying it

Advantagescolour coverage is ok, lasts all day

DisadvantagesTakes a long time to apply, causes "spider eye effect" goes gloopy

"...don't use a lot of maybelline products and thought that they were on par with the likes of Max Factor and Bojouis not Collection 2000. I'm glad that i didn't pay the full whack for this as I would be even more dissapointed, I think i'll be going back to my old faithful next time. XXL is avaliable from most chemists, supermarkets and anywhere that sells Maybellline...If your a fan of gloopy, time consuming mascara's that is. For more information ..." Read review

XXL Length

Advantagesmakes eyelashes longer

Disadvantagesannoying tube design, doesn't add much volume

"I am obsessed with mascaras and almost always rush out to buy the latest one as soon as I hear about it. However, I took a while to try this one, because I wasn't sure about the extra time it would take to put 2 coats on- I'm pretty lazy! But curiosity got the better of me so here's my first impressions. Presentation The mascara comes hygenically sealed in a bubble pack (as do most these days). The tube is quite large, with a black end and a white ..." Read review

Maybelline XXL Volume Length Mascara Brilliant!!!

AdvantagesLast all day, excellant volume, no clumps!!!!

DisadvantagesNothing worth mentioning

"This has to be the best mascara I have ever used!!! and I have used loads and loads When it comes to make up I am very fussy and hard to please but this mascara it great. I find it very easy to use and clump free. You get 5ml of the white mascara and 5ml of the black. The directions for use are; apply the white mascara to the eyelashes and then immediately apply the black. In my make up rountine I always curl my eye lashes before applying ..." Read review

Maybe if I spend 10 minutes applying it...

Advantagesnot too expensive, no clumps

Disadvantagesnot that much difference

"...) and bought myself a Maybelline XXL Volume Length Microfiber Mascara. I have been circling the Bourjois Coup de Theatre Mascara which is similar however I was put off by price of about 9.00 GBP and I am not the type of person to spend a lot of money on make up. I noticed that Maybelline had a 2 pounds off the usual price of the XXL Volume mascara in Boots and from 7.99 it went do 5.99 GBP. So I decided to give it a go as it looked promising ..." Read review

A good little mascara

AdvantagesReally does lengthen lashes, value for money, novelty

DisadvantagesChunky packaging, not that easy to apply

"I bought this product for £7.99 at ASDA, which I found to be good value for money considering what you're getting. I am student, so therefore on a pretty tight budget; but in my experience, for a cosmetic product to be worth buying, you have to spend more than £5 for it to be any good. It is a product I use everyday and expect to get about 6 weeks use out of. This has been the first time I have bought primer/mascara wand. To be honest, up until ..." Read review
