A few weeks ago, Maybelline released a few new products to the drugstore! One of these products is the new Total Temptation Mascara!  I’ve always been one to use Maybelline mascaras, so I was excited to see this new release and try it out!


With claims to create soft, separated, and fluffy lashes, this sounds like the ultimate mascara! It comes in the normal shade range – Brownish Black, Very Black, and Blackest Black – with a waterproof version in all of these shades. The brush reminds me of a fuller version of the Full ‘N Soft Mascara, which is also one of my favorites!

I got this mascara in my latest Ulta order, so I’ve been using this mascara for about two weeks now. One first use, I wasn’t super impressed by it. It felt like a more liquidy formula, which isn’t unusual for a new mascara. However, I haven’t felt like this has gotten much better after the past couple of weeks. When applied to the lashes, it feels a little heavy, but it doesn’t seem to do a great job at volumizing or lengthing the lashes. It’s almost as if it just coats the lashes without making them look a ton better! By the end of the day, I notice a little smudging under the lashes and, overall, my lashes look a little droopy! This definitely doesn’t help hold any of the curl (although this is the washable version, not waterproof).

Ulta.comIn all, I’m not impressed with this mascara! I think Maybelline has quite a few other formulas that are a lot better in formula than this one! I would completely recommend the Full N’ Soft and The Rocket formulas, which seem to build volume and length!
