Prestige My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect Mascara – Review & Photos
Okay, so I know that it’s been a while since I reviewed a mascara, so I decided to do another. Well, actually, as mentioned, I bought this mascara during the time I was doing weekly reviews of them, but I decided to take a break, and well, I don’t know what happened after. I first heard about Prestige My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect from EleventhGorgeous, when one of them (I can’t remember who) raved about this mascara. Then I remembered that Prestige cosmetics are being sold at the Beauty Bar so I grabbed one for myself.
First, let’s start with the packaging – Any pink-a-holics will surely love this mascara’s packaging. Come on? Pink & black combo is a sure win for me. I lah-ove the color combo, the presentation, everything. The product has a simple packaging, it’s housed in a pink, straight, cylindrical plastic tube, nothing fancy, but as I’ve said, gotta love the colors. It’s sturdy enough, it doesn’t look cheap, nor does it look expensive either. It contains .46 fl oz / 13.6 ml of product, I got it in the shade of MBG-01 Very Black. It costs PhP 450, not bad, considering that it’s a foreign makeup brand, and it’s available at Beauty Bar.

Next up, the wand – Well, don’t get me wrong here, aside from product reviews, this is the first thing that I always look at when I buy my mascaras. The mascara has a thick brush, tapered at the end, which is also excellent for holding & distributing the formula evenly. I like it because I don’t have a lot of mascaras that have wands similar to this one. Also, having a wand in this size, signifies that the mascara offers your lashes more volume rather than length, which we will test later.
Now, as for the formula, I’m afraid this mascara confuses me.. You know those mascaras, where you feel the formula, you feel that it’s there even though you only applied a single coat? This one, I didn’t get to feel anything, until probably the third coat. I wasn’t as impressed with this mascara as others were, which really sucks, because try as I may, it seemed that my lashes just can’t work with this mascara. Further, despite its lightweight formula, it has a tendency to weigh down my eyelashes, even though I just had them curled prior to applying the said mascara.
As you can see, it didn’t offer much in terms of volume nor lengthening, but it did great in defining them. But as for the two major factors that the product claims to provide, I’m afraid it just didn’t work out for me. However, as for the longevity, it did last the entire day, and even though it’s waterproof, I can easily remove it with makeup cleansing wipes. Furthermore, what I like about this product is that it doesn’t clump, and it doesn’t flake either. And as I’ve mentioned, if I want to have just a simple, defined eyelashes, this is something that could come in handy.

Didn’t volumize nor lengthen my lashes
Weighs down my lashes
All in all, I think I still consider this mascara a keeper. I know that it failed me in terms of volumizing/lengthening, but this is something that I could still use on a day-to-day basis. It’s not clumpy and it’s great if I just want to draw attention to my eyes without being over dramatic. Furthermore, considering the price range, it’s hard to find a non-clumping mascara that you can layer over and over again and still achieve the same result. Take note that the fourth picture (three or more coats) had five layers of the product already.
So those are my thoughts about Prestige My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect Mascara, I hope you find it helpful if in case you’re contemplating about buying the said product. Again, please keep in mind, that just because it didn’t work out for me, it might not work for you. We have different preferences, we have different lashes, this formula might work wonders for your lashes, who knows? If you really want to give this mascara a try, go ahead, try it. Don’t let any reviews get in the way of you buying something you really want. At least you get to experience something first hand. If you like it, blog about it, and let me know, if you don’t, well, blog about it too. Lol.
Oh, and before I forgot.. If you remember my instagram post regarding the Essence Counter that I just spotted recently at the SM Department store near us? Well, I did a major ‘haul-age’ a couple of days ago, and some of them will be included at the April COM giveaway.
I decided not to enumerate all of the products one by one, since I don’t want you to give out major spoilers on what the prices will be. Although the picture kinda does give out some clues. Oh, and hey, that’s a collective haul, I didn’t buy all of those items in one day. I may be a shopaholic, but I don’t have all that moolah, lol.
Oh, and I got my recent SampleRoom order. I soo want to be included in their Blogger Circle, but sadly, my blog, this blog is not even one year old yet. Don’t get me wrong. My domain is nearly three years old, I had it when I was still in Blogger, then I transferred to WordPress, then when my GoDaddy account turned a year old, something happened, then my entries were deleted. So I had a beauty blog. My BlueHost (the one I’m using now) is a year old, but I didn’t start blogging until May last year, so this blog is not a year old yet. Sorry if I confused you with my nonsense babbling.
Anyway, sorry for the long entry. Again, it’s the babbling thing. Besides, I missed you guys! Enjoy the rest of your week!
