Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / July 09 2018

The product

Whenever we buy a new mascara, there are generally two main things we want it to achieve: length and volume. However, it can be hard to create long and dramatic lashes without any clumping. Luckily, Maybelline New York have launched their Total Temptation Mascara, which has been formulated with coconut nectar to leave lashes soft and separated in addition to elongated and fluffy.

The Total Temptation range also features a Shadow and Highlight Palette, plus a Brow Definer to help you complete your eye makeup look, no matter the occasion. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put the range to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York Total Temptation Mascara, as well as Maybelline New York Total Temptation Shadow and Highlight Palette and Maybelline New York Brow Definer, to a panel of women aged between 18 and 39 who wanted to create volumised lashes without any clumping.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Maybelline New York Total Temptation Mascara:

How long and volumised it left their lashes: The positive feedback about how effectively this mascara lengthened and volumised lashes was overwhelming. Many testers even commented that it was one of the best mascaras they had used in years.

How easily the formula could be built up: Many reviewers loved the mascara’s versatility: they found that a single coat achieved a natural-looking finish and the formula could be built up to create a more dramatic, night-time look.

How the formula didn’t cause any clumping or flaking: The top thing reviewers loved was how this mascara didn’t cause any clumping or flaking, regardless of how many coats they applied. Testers also appreciated that their lashes were left looking and feeling soft in addition to separated.

The verdict

“This mascara applies smoothly, minus any clumping, smudging or flaking. And I can apply numerous coats without my lashes looking clumped or fake. I've been very happy with the results every time I use it. It also removes easily without harsh rubbing or scrubbing and outperforms mascaras I've tried that cost twice the price. What a bargain! I'll definitely be buying this repeatedly in the future.”

“This mascara applies smoothly and looks so natural! It can be built up easily to achieve a heavier look if needed. It also removes easily when I use a micellar water wipe. No flaking and no clumping, I’m sold!”

“Was so looking forward to this trial and it didn't disappoint! The mascara is really lovely! It not only looks cute but smells so good too. I love that you can apply just a little to give you lovely lashes or go over a few times for a dramatic look. The brush is incredible and easy to use and it doesn’t flake or clump. I'll be switching to this one from now on!”
