Product Fail – NYC and Maybelline Mascara

I typically use an Almay mascara, but had been wanting to try something different. Since Mascara should be thrown out after 3-6 months, it doesn’t take much time to be able to try something different. But so far I am sticking with the Almay I’ve been using.

I just found that the bristles of this mascara weren’t packed densely enough to grab onto my lashes. It took way to long to actually get the product onto the lashes. It could be nicer for people with already thicker lashes, though I’m not sure.

I tried this out because I am lazy and often skip curling my lashes and was hoping this would help. I found the brush to be too fat for my liking and the formula made my eyes water.
