Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara.
To be honest, their mascaras are my favourite, I haven’t found one that I don’t like so my expectation with this one were really high.
On their website they say:
“Build on bold volume to create irresistibly soft, separated, and dense lashes coat after coat. Features a creamy and whipped formula infused with coconut extract”
You can get the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara here for 6,99$
I absolutely LOVE the packaging, I mean, pink is my favourite colour so what were you expecting?! Holding it in my hands it feels a lot bigger than the average mascara size but it turns out it contains 8,6ml, like pretty much every mascara.
The spooly is a standard size bristles applicator with a slight cone shape.
The formula is not too thick or too liquidy, it’s almost moussy and very black if you are not careful it tends to transfer on your lids when you apply it. But once it dries it doesn’t smudge or flake off.
The only problem I have with it is the scent, it’s not bad, but it’s very strong, I haven’t had any problem with it but I’m a bit concerned to put something so heavily fragranced near my eyes. If you have sensitive eyes this might be something to keep in mind.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I do two coats to get the best results but if you like to do more you can definitely build this mascara up without the spidery effect. Overall I think two coats are more than enough the get the best result.
This mascara is very lengthening. It also volumizes the lashes but it’s not the most volumizing mascara I own.
It’s not clumpy therefore I love it on the lower lashes too, which rarely happens.
I find that it holds a curl quite well but it could be better. One of the things I love the most about it is that once it dries it doesn’t make the lashes really hard. They remain soft and flattery.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
I find it fairly easy to remove with micellar water, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

I absolutely adore this mascara, I actually got compliments on my lashes when I wore it because they are super long and voluminous. I wish it held the curl a little better. Really, the only thing I don’t like is the scent, or better, I don’t like the fact that it has a scent, it concerns me to have something with perfume near my eyes but I have to say it didn’t bother my eyes at all. Apart from that, I’m obsessed with this mascara, one of my favourites from Maybelline.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
