Maybelline Total Temptation
Mascara Review


 Hi Divas

I have used so many high end mascaras last year, I became totally out of touch when it came to affordable options. I am in no way a mascara snob and do believe that you can find hits and misses in both budget friendly and luxury mascaras. Since my high end mascaras were about to be tossed in the empties pile I decided to venture out and see what's on the market in the low end range. I came across the Maybelline Total Temptation mascara. The packaging is a pretty pink so that immediately caught my full attention, LOL. I have never been a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras but thought I would give this one a go as the price was on point and the wand looked comfortable to use. The mascara promises to give bold volume while separating each lash for a full soft and dramatic effect. I love mascaras that give me volume and lift my lashes. I was truly hoping this would be a great purchase.


I love the packaging of this mascara. The tube comes in a light pink plastic with the black bristle brush wand. The mascara feels light weight and easy to grip in the hand. The wand is the perfect length and is sturdy enough to control each application. I prefer bristle brushes over plastic ones as they feel gentler on the eyes. The brush consists of many criss cross bristles which grips each lash and coats the eye lashes in one swipe. The wand disperses even amount of product and the brush is not too big for even the smallest eyes. I like that it does not cause any product transfer on the upper part of the eye lid as some big bristle brushes tend to do. You can easily control where the product is placed and the amount you want to use.

The formula of the mascara is a creamy whipped texture and consists of coconut extract to soften lashes. It has a slight sweet coconut scent but you would easily miss it if you are not paying attention. It is not overbearing and you really have to take a big sniff to pick up on it. Who smells their mascara every time they apply it anyway? Upon first use, the formula of the mascara seems to be wet but after several uses the formula dries out a little and the consistency is perfect. The creamy texture is soft and does not feel hard or dry out your lashes as some mascaras tend to do. I was actually really surprised at how soft my lashes felt after application. The black colour is very opaque and helps to create that dramatic effect.



As you can see in the photo above, the mascara gave me great volume and lift. It coated my lashes perfectly without clumping or creating spidery lashes. I used two coats to create this bold look and I truly like it. I did not wait too long between each coat, as once fully dried it would be difficult to manipulate the lashes in the intensity and shape you want it. I therefore recommend to work fairly quickly and not take too much time applying. This is a great soft formula and my lashes never felt weighed down or irritated and hard. It did not flake or smudge throughout a normal day for me. This mascara however is not at all waterproof. If you find yourself sweating profusely, crying or caught in a heavy down pour of rain, the mascara will run under the eyes. Despite that, I think this is a great every day mascara for work or on a normal day out. I would not reach for this when I need to be glam for special occasions though. What do you think of this mascara? Have you tried this one or any favourites from Maybelline? Let me know below!



Thank you so much for reading.
