Review: Wet 'N' Wild Mega Lash Mascara


NAME:
+Megalash Mascara in Black (only shade they had)

PROMISE/ADVERTISE CLAIM:
+MegaLash maximizes every lash with volume, body and length, length, length!

The special extending formula bonds to lashes so they're noticeably longer, while body-building elements promote thicker lashes and long-lasting wear without smudging or clumping.
  • Body-building formula volumizes and lengthens
  • Creates thick, natural-looking lashes without smudges or clumps
  • Ophthalmologist-tested mascara is contact lens safe

PRICE:
+$1.99!

WHERE I BOUGHT IT:
+Rite Aid (My Longs Drugs didn't sell Wet N Wild)

PACKAGING:
+Small package but convenient for traveling and not bulky and big like other mascaras.

PROS/LIKES:
+First off, the price of this is amazing! LOL. I dunno where else I would find a cheap mascara.
+Short bristles help promote lash separation and this mascara has that. So definitely, no clumping.
+No weird smell
+Created a natural looking lashes
+Soft Lashes.
+No smudging and after sleeping with it on, hardly any flakes all over my eyes.

CONS/DISLIKES:
+I'm a volume type of girl - I love my lashes to look dramatic and this didn't create the va-va-voom I look for in mascaras. I meticulously put a lot of mascara on, naturally (I love mascara) - about 4/5 coats and it did lenghten a tiny bit and gave a bit of volume but no where near L'Oreal HIP or even L'Oreal Telescopic.
+The brush itself is too long, in my opinion. It was a bit difficult getting to my corner lashes without it getting on the skin.
+Not a lot of different color choices - like brown.

OVERALL:
+I think this is pretty well for a $1.99 mascara. Although it didn't give me va-va-voom lashes, it did give a pretty natural look (so it lived up to it's claim for that) and if you're meticulous in putting mascara as I am - there should hardly be any clumping. The bristles are short anyways, so I don't see how that would happen either way. This would be great usage for lower lashes, since it doesn't apply so thickly - it'll give nice length without the spider-look appearance.

BUY AGAIN?
+No. But for that price, I wouldn't mind shelling out a few bucks for it as a travel product.

YOU'LL LIKE IF...
+Broke. LOL.
+Like a natural look.
+Need some volume/length to lashes (I'm assuming for naturally long-lashed folks)

YOU'LL DISLIKE LIKE IF...
+Looking for a very volumizing mascara (I'm assuming for folks with short lashes).
+Prefer brown/waterproof mascara.

RATING:
+3/5
