Maybelline New York Unstoppable Mascara is one of those mascaras which contain microfibres which sort of attach on to the ends of your real lashes, making them look longer and fuller. It claims to be 100% smudgeproof for 12 hours and as such performs like a waterproof mascara but removes like a err non-waterproof one.
I have to say I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this mascara. The first time I wore it I thought WOW my eyelashes look amazing! And they stayed amazing all day and all evening. The next time I went to wear it though it appeared to be a bit clumpy and my eyelashes looked too heavy and were getting stuck together by the formula. On the next occasion they looked fabulous again so perhaps it is just my naughty eyelashes messing around.
I am a big fan of this brush as it’s a good size, not too big or small, and there are lots of lovely bristles (?!) which pick up the mascara and the fibres and makes sure all of your lashes are coated. Here’s how it looks on…

I don’t have a picture of two coats because frankly I don’t think it needs it. Don’t my lashes look super?! (Edit: I should have mentioned before when I first published this that these photos were taken EIGHT HOURS after I’d put the mascara on – amazing!).
The shade I purchased was Soft Black and I was a little dubious before I used it as it is a very soft black, almost a smoky grey colour. I didn’t think it would show up well or give much definition but I really love the colour now. I probably would repurchase this mascara again as when it works, it really works and I love the effect it gives with just one coat. The only issue I had with it is that I found it was quite messy and smudgy when attempting removal. I purchased mine from Cheap Smells here for only £4.10.
