Review Overview

Lash Discovery Waterproof Mascara lacks the noticeable thickness of its non-waterproof counterpart, but this is otherwise an extraordinary mascara that lifts, lengthens, and leaves lashes with a soft, fringed curl. It’s also waterproof and the tiny brush makes application to the lower lashes a cinch.

Brand Overview

Maybelline New York At-A-Glance

Strengths: At least one excellent product (if not several) in almost every category; many excellent foundations; superior mascaras; inexpensive makeup brushes; some terrific concealers, powders, blush, and lip color options.

Weaknesses: Lips balms tend to be a letdown; a few of the Great Lash mascaras are surprisingly average compared to other Maybelline formulas.

Maybelline is one of the best-known and most recognized mass-market makeup lines in the world—it's available in 90 countries. Throughout its long history, which began in 1915 when T. L. Wilson founded the company and named it after his sister, Mabel, and Vaseline (which he combined with coal dust to concoct a mascara for her), the company has prided itself on bringing innovative products to the marketplace. L'Oreal purchased the company in early 1996, and that's when things really started coming together for the Maybelline brand.

Specializing in a large selection of lipsticks, nail polishes, and mascaras, there is a lot to love from this drugstore brand. Many of their foundations are exceptional, and their powders, several mascaras, pencils, matte-finish concealers, and Superstay Lipcolor collection impressed us by offering a high degree of quality for their inexpensive price point.

Maybelline's latest urban image is a positive step, as many of their latest launches have been innovative without resorting to "been-there, done-that" gimmicks. Smart shoppers will note the similarities of a few of Maybelline’s formulas to products from high-end brands that are also owned by parent company L’Oreal. That just goes to show conscientious shopping can really save you money—without sacrificing quality or performance.

Must have gotten a bad one...

This did absolutely not one thing for my lashes. So so little product on the wand...maybe mine was a fluke but it was used once and I knew it was not for me...

Love this except for a little flaking

I love the little brush as it gives you so much control, really separates your lashes and lets you do the under eye lashes with ease. The only problem is a little flaking/rubbing off under the eyes later in the day. But I still use it and just keep an eye out (pun) for the slightly dark marks to rub them off as soon as they appear!

Excellent!

Great mascara for beach/pool. Would recommend to anyone looking to define/separate lashes for a natural look. No "mascara-y" smell and doesn't irritate my eyes. Now I remember why I used this mascara exclusively in the summer in high school for lifeguarding, boating, etc. Paid under $7 at Target.:)

Perfect for lower lashes

This is the perfect mascara for lower lashes because the brush is small and precise enough that it gets in the outer corners fully. Also, the formula is very waterproof and doesn't smudge on my watery, oily eyelids (which is saying something!). Great mascara!

Smudges and runs!

this mascara smudges and runs which is disappointing because its supposed to be waterproof, last week I had lunch with a friend I had not seen for a while instand tears sprung at the sight of her. I was motified when I got in the car after lunch and my mascara had run and smudged... UGH!

Iffy

Mini brush is great for short, sparse lashes. However, product often comes out of tube in clumps on the end of the brush. It also tends to smudge under the eyes after a couple hours.

Fail

It did nothing for my eyes and I felt I started loosing more lashes when I was using it. I felt this product also dried them out a little bit.

Flaked then wouldn't wash off

It would have been a good value if it had worked out. It flaked, fell into my eyes, but then would not wash off- left smudges under eyes.
