NEW Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara Review

Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara Review

As I've gotten older I've become very loyal to certain makeup products and certain brands. When I find something that I like it's pretty difficult to make me change my mind. Mascara has been one of those products. Maybelline has been one of those brands. I'm very particular about what I want and that is volume, length and a formula that won't flake or budge, ever. Spending my money on makeup that works is what is important - not only for me but also for those of you who trust my cosmetics reviews. Maybelline has kindly gifted me their newest range of mascaras to try, review and bring our lashes to the next level. The Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara is designed to be irresistible, addictive and seductive. Did I give in to the temptation? Here are my thoughts.

The last time I wore a non waterproof mascara I was walking around the streets of London looking like a panda that hadn't slept in 500 years so naturally I was a bit hesitant to try the Total Temptation original. Thankfully my faith in non waterproof makeup has finally been restored. This new mascara didn't flake or give me a pair of black Prada bags, it locked right on to my lashes right where it needed to stay and my eyes looked good. This is a mascara for a feathery look, a natural look, it has a brush that coats the lashes evenly and provides great length. The mascara stays put all day until you ultimately decide to remove it. It is a long lasting formula that has no problem surviving humid weather conditions (which is an absolute must) and requires no touch ups during the day.

Since transferring to "always wearing waterproof mascaras" I have to say that one thing that bothers me about different kinds of mascaras within the same range is that the waterproof one never seems to be even close to what the original formula has to offer. Most of the time they are just completely different mascaras. That is also the case here; the formula is a lot dryer but it gives the same results, thankfully. I like the original Total Temptation formula better because I personally enjoy applying creamier mascaras more but if you are someone who can absolutely not skip on the waterproof eye makeup, this mascara is fine - it just takes a bit more layering. The finish is still beautiful and the mascara is just as reliable.

This is my favorite mascara out of the 3 and also the one I've worn the most. The formula is creamy, easy to apply, very pigmented and long lasting. It doesn't flake, it doesn't clump or bunch up, it has an enjoyable cacao scent and it makes your lashes look stunning! I love it, it's a deep brown color that fits with all of my makeup looks. Mascara is an absolute staple for me and this one has definitely made it into my favorites' list. Confession: when trying this Total Temptation Cacao I hadn't tried a brown mascara since being a teenager, I'm almost 30 and I didn't know a brown mascara could feel so life changing!
