Review: MUA Extreme Curl Mascara

Although I’m no longer a mascara snob, and much more willing to try ones from bargain brands, I was a little bit unsure about the MUA Extreme Curl Mascara when they sent it to me for review.

This was partly due to the fact it came in the shade Brown/Black, which I had never used and assumed wouldn’t suit me, and also because the brush was a peculiar shape!

I’ve actually had this mascara sitting in my make up drawer for a good few months and had never tried it until now. What a mistake that was!

I really, really liked this product – although I was dubious about the colour at first, it looked lovely on the lashes. The wand was a little tricky to work with on the bottom lashes but worked really well for the top set.

Here’s what my lashes looked like before:

And after a good coating of the mascara:

Whilst I wouldn’t say it gave my lashes an extreme curl, it lengthened them for sure. It didn’t add much volume but that can look really beautiful for some make up looks. I’ve already planned a couple where this brown/black shade would work wonderfully!

Best of all…it costs just £2! An absolute bargain.

Have you used any of the MUA mascaras? How did you get on with them?

Stay Creative,

    I really love what it did for your lashes! But I heard its not good to keep Mascaras for over 3 months, not sure if thats once you open them. x
