Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara Review

Guerlain Maxi Lash

The star of the Guerlain spring collection is the Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara, a formula that promises masses of volume and curl with just a twist and a roll of its densely bristled wand. The formula is Guerlain’s most advanced yet – a triple polymer affair made up of oils and waxes that shape and sculpt the lashes to a dramatic degree.

The design of the Maxi Lash Mascara is a scaled back in comparison to Le 2 and and Noir G, and feels much lighter. The finish is still luxurious, with an art deco feel reminiscent of some other, newer, Guerlain products (Ecrin 4 Palette, Rouge Automatique).

Though it is smaller and lighter, the formula more than stands up to its predecessors. Where Noir G provides a sooty, romantic fringe of lashes and Le 2 is great for everyday lengthening and volumising, Maxi Lash is all about drama. The triple polymer formula first thickens with oils, then conditions and shapes, and finally sets the curl with a thin film. It’s a great, buildable formula – just remember to comb the lashes between applications to avoid clumps!

The ease of application is all down to the hollow fibres of the brush. This dispenses the mascara evenly, while the twisted design and mix of short and long bristles add texture and make it easy to build up the intensity of your lash look. It’s such a versatile mascara, and a great choice for those looking for something that will easily take them from day to night.
