Purchased by Me
While shopping at Wal-Mart the other day, I came across this mascara; Wet N' Wild Megalength Mascara. It promised 80% longer looking lashes in just one sweep, and at $2.97, how could I go wrong? Well, sometimes you get what you pay for, and in this case it held true.
Now don't get me wrong. I was not expecting miracles at $2.97. But I was hoping for a little more than what I got. The packaging was not very impressive. I have never been a huge fan of plastic bristles for mascara. I find that it underachieves, and you never get a fully polished look. With the Wet N' Wild Megalength Mascara I found the wand to be very flimsy. My lashes were separated, but I did not think that my lashes appeared longer than they usually do.
My lashes are naturally dark, and I like mascaras that make my lashes appear darker than they are without mascara. I noticed with this mascara there was very little intensity in color. Yes, the mascara was black. But I disagree with Wet N' Wild when it calls this mascara "very black." When looking for a dark mascara, I think of Maybelline's GreatLash or Tarte's Amazon Clay mascara. But in this case, the color was just plain old black.
There is one redeeming quality about this mascara. While it does not work for your upper lashes, it works well for your bottom lashes. The small bristles work well at getting the bottom lashes to show. Sometimes with an average size wand, I have problems getting my bottom lashes to show as well as my upper lashes. So if you are like me, with mouse like bottom lashes then go pick up a tube of the Wet N' Wild Megalength Mascara.
In the end, if you are searching for a good quality mascara that lengthens your upper lashes I would pass on this mascara. However, if you are planning on using the mascara for only your bottom lashes, then I would recommend the Wet N' Wild Megalength Mascara.
