Guerlain’s new Maxi Lash formula is seriously impressive. First of all, before we even get into how it makes your lashes look: it smells amazing. The scent is very floral and perfumey. If it was an actual perfume, I would say lovely things about it. Sadly, I can’t think of very many times when it would be appropriate to spread mascara on my wrists, no matter how excellent the odor may be.
It’s got a pretty standard-looking, medium sized-brush. It doesn’t looking like it will knock your socks off. The magic doesn’t happen until it hits your eyelashes: it’s the perfect mix of “yes, I can wear this to work” and “oh my god, my eyelashes look incredible!”. It’s everyday drama in the best possible way. Besides the price ($30 for mascara hurts my soul a little bit), the only drawback to this mascara comes right when you pull the wand out of the tube: it leaves you with a hunk of gloopiness right at the end, that you will need to scrape off.
Guerlain Maxi Lash retails for $30 for 0.28 oz ($107.14 per ounce). For comparison, Clinique High Impact retails for $16 for 0.28 oz or $57.14 per ounce.
