Product Review: Maybelline Snapscara

Hey Beauties and happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well and if not, you have half of the week left to turn your week great!

Today’s review is an exciting one because I’ve been wanting to try this mascara out for quite some time now, but I haven’t gotten around to testing it out. Maybelline has some of my favorite drugstore mascaras and I’ve been hearing nothing but great things about this one. So, naturally I had to give you guys an honest review about it!

Maybelline’s Description

Meet a new generation of mascara! Snapscara is our 1st pigmented wax-free mascara that features a zero-hassle, no clump formula that glides on smooth for clean volume and defined lashes all-day. This voluminous mascara is made without pigment-dulling waxes and the effect is super-saturated lashes with pure color intensity. Easily remove this game-changing mascara with a cotton pad and warm water – it’s never tough to take off.

Maybelline’s Website

With that being said, their description alone makes me super excited over how colored this mascara will be and who doesn’t love a no clump formula?! Not to mention, clean volume and defined lashes all day?!?! This was made for me!

What colors does it come in?

This mascara comes in 5 colors which is awesome! The colors are Pitch Black, Ultra Violet, Black Cherry, Bold Brown and Deja Blue!

Today’s review will be on the Pitch Black color because I wanted to give this one a try before I even think about buying all the other colors.

Packaging and Name

The packaging is super sleek and I love that the packaging gives you a peek at the color that’s inside the tube. I also love that one side of the packaging has a bunch of eyelashes and eyes because it’s a cute detailing.

The name SNAPscara makes me think of when your contour is snatched, like a pulled together and defined look. So, snapped to me sounds like your eyelashes are defined, voluminous and neat!

The Wand

For me, I love looking at how the shape of the wand is because right off the bat I can tell if I’m going to love a mascara or not. I loved the fact that this wand is slightly curved because these types of wands usually give a bit of a lift. I also love that the wand has smaller, defined bristles at the top of the brush because it will give your lashes more of a cat eye, defined look and the product would be less likely to get on your lids.

Price and Where can I find this?

This mascara is $7.99 at Ulta which is a decent price for a drugstore mascara and you can find it at any drugstore, Ulta, Amazon or even on Maybelline’s website.

First Impression

My first impression of this formula was how black the mascara was which I love! You could tell it didn’t have a waxy consistency and it didn’t have a thickness to it as other mascaras do.

My thoughts

This mascara was a let down, but it’s also what I was expecting from looking at the wand and formula. I just wish Maybelline hadn’t hyped this mascara up because they made better. Had they emphasized that it was a lengthening mascara vs. a volumizing mascara I would’ve had a better final thought. Being that the formula wasn’t waxy or a thick formula made me kind of know that it wasn’t going to be voluminous, I just had high hopes because of the description on Maybelline’s website. I also was expecting a more black color because of how they were hyping it. I loved how defined and lengthened my lashes looked, but I just wish this mascara was a little more thickening. It was also pretty easy to take off just as they said which is nice for everyday wear.

Would I purchase this again?

I would like to try the more colorful mascaras because I feel like I’d like it alot more then the black one. So I’d purchase this back except one with color.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have you ever tried this mascara? If so, let me know what your thoughts are on it! If you have any suggestions on products you’d like a review on, let me know and I’ll make sure to get it up for you.
