Influenster - Maybelline #GreatLashBlue

It's been a while since I received my last Influenster box but I just received a new one today! This time it was Maybelline's #GreatLashBlue campaign that was sent to me. I actually ended up with it thanks to taking one of their surveys on the site. It's one of those easy ones where I answer questions about what products I enjoy using. There's always different opportunities depending on what you review and show interest in. So, let's get to it!

In my lovely box I received Maybelline's Great Lash mascara in the color Royal Blue along with their Unstoppable eyeliner in Onyx. If I'm being completely honest I wasn't quite sure what to think of the product only because I'd never thought of having blue mascara before. I'm more of a black or brown color mascara girl but that's probably because I like to keep things a little more simple.

The mascara is a very pretty blue. I can't say that enough. The packaging claims it is all about building up volume by starting at the base or root of your lashes and going out multiple times. I found this to be very true. It was easy to build up my lashes and show off the pretty blue shade. If anything I must admit that I did do some mascara on the top of my eyelashes as well just to make them look fully blue because I'm that type of person.

The only downsides I have with the mascara is the fact that it isn't waterproof. I always need waterproof mascara considering I wear contacts. My eyes will water at random times, even just after a yawn, so having my blue mascara run down my cheeks won't look that appealing. The mascara was very easy to get off with a bit of makeup remover and the packaging says that soap and water will do the trick as well.

I can really only see myself using the mascara for a night out with friends or going out to the club. I don't think I could pull off blue lashes while at work because that would confuse not only my coworkers but the multiple kids I end up working with.

For the eyeliner the packaging was spot on in saying it was smooth and easy to apply. I had no trouble at all! Usually I'm wary of eyeliner just because I can have a shaky hand so having random zig zags around my eyes isn't very attractive. Or maybe it is but I just haven't seen the trend yet. Either way I love the color as it's a bit more of a gray blue and it works to be a little more subtle compared to the blue mascara that I have on. I could see myself also using it with some black or even brown mascara depending on my outfit for the day.

Just like the mascara it came off easily with makeup remover. The extra bonus for the eyeliner is that it's waterproof! Just what I need so I'll definitely be playing around with it more. There's really no downside for the eyeliner that I could find so definitely check out the Unstoppable series.

Have any of you tried Maybelline's Great Lash mascara? What did you think of it? Would you ever dare to go for the blue and if so when would you wear it? Also have you tried the Unstoppable eyeliner series? If so do you agree with me or do you have trouble with it? Let me know what you think in the comments below. (:
