Review: mark. Make it Big mascara in Black

Good morning everyone! After a week+ of trying the mark. Make it Big Mascara, I wanted to write a review for you regarding the product. Have any of you tried this mascara? If so, I'd love to know what you think!


First, when I saw the tube, I liked how large it was, because for me, it is more ergonomic, and easier to use and apply the mascara. Secondly, I love the brush - it reminds me of the Maybelline Colossal Mascara brush: the style is a that of a traditional bristle, but it is bigger, and the actual bristles are thicker to help pull through your lashes.

The actual product itself is a bit dry, so this was the biggest turn off for me. I don't know if I'm just used to the really smooth mascaras that you apply once, maybe twice, but this wasn't one of them. I found that because the formula was a bit dry, it took several coats to get the length, thickness and application I was looking for. Once I did this, though, I thought the mascara looked great.

There was no flaking, smudging, or other issues with the mascara after application. I did not try to curl my lashes, so I do not know how this will hold curl for those of you that do so on a regular basis.

Retail Price: $6.50
Where to purchase: www.meetmark.com, www.avon.com
Product: 3.5 out of 5
Price: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 3.5 out of 5
Would I purchase again? I am still unsure if I received a bad tube that was a bit too try, or if this is just how the formula works. I do know they put these on sale a lot with the rest of the mark. line, so there is a good chance I'll try out the Espresso just to see how it is, and I'll be able to come to a full conclusion at this point.

Depending on the type of formula you are looking for with a mascara, this does give you full, long, thick lashes (see below). The final decision is definitely how this product works for you!

**EDIT**
After a lot of thought this morning when using this product, I decided it is just EXTREMELY thick, not dry, which is why it's hard to work with.
