What I Thought// Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara

So I recently finished a tube of the Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara and figured I'd share my thoughts on it.

I bought mine at my local Wal-Mart for about $6-7 and thought I'd give it a try as some of my favourite YouTubers were raving about it. This mascara has fibers in it that claims to lengthen your lashes up to 4 mm. It's like hair extensions for your lashes.

Now a little background on my lashes. They're on the shorter side however not super short, probably bordering medium length? They've got decent volume (although I could definitely use more) and they're fair at holding a curl.

Did I like this mascara? It was alright. The formulation starts off on the wet side like most Maybelline mascaras are known for, however it was more manageable when it dried out a bit. The brush was decent although I did get more clumping than I'd like.
To be honest, I felt like it didn't do too much for my lashes. If anything it was quite uncomfortable to wear, especially if I wasn't careful and got some of the fibers close to my waterline. Now that was an annoying feeling! It kind of hurt sometimes actually.. I didn't see too much of a difference in length, but there was some noticeable difference - especially with my bottom lashes. I'm not about to go measure to see if they extended 4mm but I could've done with a little more length.

Would I repurchase? Probably not. It wasn't my favourite and I think it'd be better for someone who has fairly long, thick lashes to begin with. Maybe lengthening mascaras just aren't my thing.. but if lengthening fiber mascaras are your cup of tea then I'd say give it a try! We're all entitled to our own opinions right? I just picked up the new Covergirl Flamed Out mascara so stay tuned for my thoughts on that one.



  1. I've tried this too. Felt like it got really clumpy and dried out quickly. Did not repurchase.

    1. Yea it dried it faster than the other ones but that's probably due to the fiber extension formula. Such a shame lol

  2. Thanks for posting this, I don't think it's a good one too! Which one do you use now?

    1. No problem! I'm trying out the Covergirl Flamed Out mascara right now and so far I'm not entirely impressed.
