Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara Review

Illegal length? Sounds dangerous, but for a beauty junkie -- yes please! 

I've tried fibre mascara before, the type of lash lengthening mascara that promise instant gratification. Some, like Ana Sui, lengthened lashes, but had disoriented fiber extensions that looked unnatural. Others, like L'oreal Double Extend, took an extra step to apply. When I heard about the newest mascara by Maybelline, Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara, with a one-step lash lengthening mascara formula, I had to give it a try.

The Claim
on Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara by
  • Build 4mm of measurable extensions!
  • Fiber-fix brush has 6 different contact points with each lash for optimal fiber placement
  • Breakthrough formula contains fibers up to 4mm in length
  • Sealing formula stretches lashes and seals fibers to lashes
  • Washable, also available in waterproof formula

My Take
  • Absolutely lengthened lashes up to 4 mm. I saw a difference right away.
  • Formula was rich yet smooth. No clumping occurred at all.
  • Fibers stayed on and out. Did not fall away or become disarrayed at all.
  • Created a natural, beautiful look.
  • Brush was amazing. Touched every lash and separated them too.

  • Excellent brush. 
  • Brilliant formula. No clumping at all.
  • Lengthening fiber really performed.
  • Two coats and you are good to go.
  • Easy to take off.
  • Fantastic price (around $7 - $9, depending on which store). 
  • Available almost anywhere in the U.S.

  • Formula weighed lashes down over time. Lashes did not remain curled.

Overall Rating:



With pleasure!

Here are some complete the picture:O)

Sleek packaging isn't bad either.

Wonderful lash-separating brush performed extremely well.

Lashes are unnoticed.


Natural, long lashes

Have you tried Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extension Mascara yet?

What other fibre mascara do you recommend?


  1. I been wanting to try this so I think as soon as I finish off at least 2 mascaras out of my collection I will give this one a try.

  2. Havent tried it yet but i love fiber mascaras!

  3. I am going to have to try this mascara. I have naturally long lashes to start with, however I love how this has made yours look. Time to go makeup shopping - darn *wink*.


  4. I saw this and was so skeptical about buying it, but now I'm more tempted than ever to give it a try!



  5. This looks great, will be giving this a try soon xxx

  6. i wish this mascara worked well on me as did with you..sadly no, i feel that it was very mediocre which is why i throw it out right away once it hit the 3 months mark...but i like how it long it made your lash looks...i find myself more into volumizing mascara than lengthening ones...maybe thats why i didn't enjoy this one that much...

  22. Illegal? That sounds convincing


  23. Wow, looks like it did a great job there! I'm so glad to hear and SEE how it works great on you! I just repurchased my HG mascara...its a must for me! :p

  24. What a great product review. I've been wondering about this because my lashes are shorter than when I was young, but I didn't want to waste money if it didn't work. Thanks for the encouragement to try it.

  25. Great review! This mascara really did lengthen your lashes. I find that most Maybelline mascaras tend to work pretty well on my lashes too. I've been using their Colossal Volum'Express mascara for years now.

    Thanks so much for following my blog btw! I hope you will visit again soon :)
