I like this mascara but not for the reason I probably should. I don't find it particularly lengthening but it is a nice mascara that doesn't clump and is easy to apply. I would use it again for those reasons but if I was really looking for a lengthening mascara I would probably try something else.

I bought this recently from Farmers. I usually switch up my mascara each time as I still haven't found my favourite. Also it is a reasonably cheap way to try something new. I picked up this one as I find Maybelline ones are pretty reliable. I bought this in the waterproof formula as I often get a wee bit of smudging on my top lid. Also as this mascara has fibres in it for length I thought the waterproof would be good to keep things together better.
I like the packaging as it is long as slim, great for travelling. The brush on this isn't a plastic one, more of a fibre one, and it has a twist in it which is great for grabbing the lashes. It is quite a thin brush though so makes for getting to your inner lashes really easy. I do find the brush quite long so it does make it a wee bit harder to get to the inner lashes.
The formula of this is quite wet which I really like, means that you can coat your lashes quite easily. It has wee fibres in it to lengthen your lashes which I like. They claim 3 to 4mm which I don't believe but I do think they do add a wee bit. I like in particular though that it adds a bit of volume to my lashes as well. Sometimes with fibre mascaras there can be fall out of the fibres, I didn't find this at all with this mascara.
This creates a nice natural sort of look that I love for everyday, it accentuates each individual lash rather than clumping them together. This is my favourite mascara since the L'Oreal Telescopic original. But I have the EOH mascara waiting next so we will wait and see!
UPDATE: When you have had this for a while the packaging starts to wear. The silver coating comes off onto your hands. This sucks when you get it on your hands/face as it is hard to get off. Not impressed as I'm only in month two.
I actually enjoy this mascara, brought it for $10 at a Big Bucket sale, and it works perfectly. I still need to use my eyelash curler before I use this mascara, but it does give my eylashes alot of length and doesnt make my eyelashes all clumpy and ugly. :)
It's a nice affordable mascara but I didn't notice a difference in the length of my lashes, like the product states that it will give. It's a nice fine mascara that goes on clean and the wand is great for separating the lashes - so for those reasons instead, I would use it again. The one-by-one is however still my favourite Maybelline mascara to date.
I purchased this mascara when it first came out and I was not a huge fan! I curl my lashes as they quite long but really flat and as soon as I applied this mascara they were flat again! Almost as if the mascara was so heavy my lashes couldn't handle it!
It didn't give me any extra length, and with a name like illegal lengths you would want to hope it did right! It also dried out really fast!
I wouldn't recommend this mascara unless you are just after something to give your lashes some colour, that's about all it offers unfortunately! Although it does have a nice wand!
This was a favourite mascara for me last year. It hardly clumped and my lashes looked awesome. I work 12 hours shifts and a lot of the time I'm getting sprayed with water but the mascara lasted until I removed it at the end of the day. Great go to mascara. Maybe not dramatic enough for night time.
When I first apply this mascara, I absolutely love it!! It thickens my lashes and really does lengthen them! But this effect only lasts for about 20 minutes, before the lengthened lashes start to flake. I am then left with my normal lashes looking super thick and spidery, which I don't particularly like. If the length was long-lasting I would love this mascara. The packaging is nice and the scent isn't too strong which I like. I would not buy again because of the flaking effect it has.
Great packaging, applicator brush is ok,
this product was ok but a bit of a let down compared to other maybelline products i have used.
The fibers flake off and either fall on my face and or go in my eye and found had to apply quite a bit of product to get desired effect.
I found the formula quite dry and not long after first opening the product inside was very dry and crumbly also.
given how many other great products maybelline has i would not recommend or repurchase this mascara
I found this mascara to be OK , it lengthened my lashes nicely as I have very short straight lashes but the formula was quite dry after only a few uses. When applied to my lashes it gave me thicker lashes slightly clumpy , which is fine because I prefer that look as my natural lashes look non-existent.
What I didn't enjoy is The mascara fibres that would often rub off and smudge around my eye, not a nice look.
Overall I would but not purchase it again
I found this product to lengthen my lashes by a great amount and separate my lashes on a scale out of 10 a 5 out of 10. This mascara does not hold a curl, it was still exiting to see the fiber extensions work. I do like the brush but I feel that the application would be a lot easier if the brush was a plastic spiked brush instead of a swirled fiber brush
Tips: After a applying this mascara brush through with a clean mascara brush just to give it that extra separation. Also curl your lashes after you've applied the mascara
