If you've been following my blog for some time you will perhaps have noticed that I only every use two brands of mascara; Maybelline and Chanel. Both amazing yet quite different in price obviously, which is why I tend to use Maybelline more than Chanel.
After my Mega Plush mascara started to dry up and run out, I decided it was time for a change (and Mega Plush isn't available in Luxembourg for some weird unknown reason). I saw an advert on our German TV for the new Maybelline Go Extreme Mascara in Leather Black and I was sucked in by the black tube and the big brush. Plus if it's on German TV, it's far more likely to be available here in Luxembourg. I went to the nearest Cactus and sure enough they had it in stock so I bought it a week later (the power of advertising eh?). 
The brush isn't just big, it's HUGE, so huge it deserves all caps. Look at it! It's basically the size of a bumble bee. The mascara wand has two curves on it which supposedly add extra volume. I may be missing something here but I don't quite understand how that works and haven't really found an explanation anywhere. But it seems to do the job because my lashes look longer and fuller after using it. They also hold the curl rather nicely too. 
In my experience with Maybelline mascaras, you have to use them a couple of times before they dry a little and stop clumping. I didn't notice too much clumping with this one, although the formula is quite wet and the first try was a little messy. But after that it has worked perfectly every time. I've had no difficulty removing it either, despite the fact that once the lashes are dry it doesn't smudge at all.
All in all, I'm quite impressed with this mascara. Another thumbs up for Maybelline. 
What are your go to mascara brands?
