I wasn't too sure what to expect of this product, because so many mascaras I have tried have ended up looking clumpy and leaving me with panda eyes after a workout or a physio session. I was a little hesitant when I saw the brush, as it is so different to what I'm used to!! I was really pleasantly surprised however - I felt as though all of my lashes were evenly coated and so well defined, without any of the clumping or thickness that I am used to (and hate!). It definitely gave me additional length, but not in a thick, overly obvious way. The end result is definitely more my style - defined and elegant, rather than thick and obvious. I think I've found my new favourite!!

I was excited to try Maybelline's New York Sky High waterproof mascara as I've always been an eyelash girl and had doubts there was a product that could exceed my expectations in comparison to the one I currently use.
The tube is a metallic pink and the wand is long with tiny bristles that reminded me of my grandmother's eyebrow wand that she used so long ago to draw on her eyebrows. The great thing about the tiny bristles is that they grip each and every lash and add just the perfect amount of mascara without lumping.
The mascara itself has bamboo extract and fibers which coat the lashes and make them longer, not just appear longer, but actually add fibers to the ends of your lashes which physically makes them longer! What a great way to get long lashes without fussing around with fake lashes. I had the colour "Very Black" which suited me perfectly.
The finish was very smooth and application was easy - the long wand is perfect for reaching the inner lashes and the delicate bristles separate each lash. After a long day of work, sports and family time, I found the mascara easy to remove with make-up remover. This is certainly a mascara that will replace my existing brand and as long as Maybelline makes it I will purchase it.
Tips: Wiggle the wand a little bit to ensure the bristles make contact with even the shortest of your lashes.
I'm always on the lookout for new mascaras that are waterproof and lengthening. The description for this macara and the packaging both appealed to me so I was very excited to get on this trial team! The brush comes with short plastic/silicone bristles, which I don't really like because I prefer longer bristles that make it easier to separate each individual eyelash and coat them fully. And just as I expected, it clumped up slightly when I tried to apply using the brush. In the end I had to use a clean spoolie to brush out my lashes after each coat of mascara which was a bit inconvenient. It definitely helped define my lashes more and gave more volume, but I had to recurl my lashes (which are normally stick straight) after applying 2 coats. The product inside the tube does feel quite liquidy right now since it's new and from past experience old mascara that's had time to become 'thicker' seems to hold up my lashes better. It survived my errand day well and I wore it for a good full day plus a workout with minimal undereye smudging. Granted, towards the end of the day it was basically gone and my eyelashes had flopped but miraculously there was no black smudges. Removal with a biphase eye makeup remover was relatively effortless and after I washed my face with cleanser it was all gone,
Overall I'd recommend this for it's 0 flakiness and 0 smudging, and it would be good if you naturally have curly lashes that just need a bit of extra oomph. But not quite holy grail for people with flat and droopy lashes, also it's got a little bit of clumping which isn't a huge deal breaker.
