Maybelline Unstoppable Curly Extension Mascara

When I heard about the mascara, Maybelline’s l“>Unstoppable Curly Extension Mascara, made for the asian markey, I was excited. Very very excited.


It is made for the short, straight asian lash. It is supposed to add length, enhance and hold curl – it has a slightly bent brush to get into corners and it will come off with god old water. And its a drugstore brand! It’s affordable!

I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE online so eventually I begged an eBay seller, Ginsengseafood to buy it for me :)


So what did I think when it arrived? Did it do everything it said it would? I was so excited and….

No. It didn’t. I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that it didn’t work for me.

For one thing, whilst it is lengthening it added NO volume whatsoever. A little bit of body is always a good thing, eh?

Also the biggest problem of all is that IT DID NOT HOLD CURL and to make it worse, it made mine flop – and that my dear, is simply unacceptable, in a mascara that calls itself ‘unstoppable curly’.

No mascara, just curled lashes:


After 2 coats of unstoppable curly – as you can see it made my lashes flop:


I wanted this to work so badly because it does come of easily with a bit of warm water (like the Kiss Me mascaras) – I thought my search was over! Alas not to be. It didn’t work for me with my straight, short asian lashes. My super curl enhancing-retaining mascaras are still: Tiffa Length, SANA Big Curl, Integrate Volume and Aube Lash Comb mascara. But they are all a bugger to get off.

The dream mascara search goes on……

  1. Too bad that it didn’t work. When I first read the title of your post I wanted to look for it online right away but it was a good thing I proceeded w/ reading your review. I’m such a sucker for products that claim they’re made for the Asian market. Makes it especially tempting to buy. Let’s move on to the next mascara then! hehe :)

  2. Hi Eka!

    Since maybelliene are HUGE and they launched this for asian lashes I thought they would have tested and tested and tested the formula out on lots of types of asian lashes. It didn’t work for me, my mama, my aunts etc. so it’s not that great. Shame, shame, shame!

  3. oohhh… that sucks that it didn’t hold a curl!! but they actually have a waterproof version, i’m not sure how that performs but I think it should be better at retaining a curl…

  4. not sure why but this works fine with me. I just tried it and 15 mins passed already it still holding it’s shape. I tried their Volum’ Express Waterproof also but I like this one better since this one’s washable

  5. it works for me! try it without curling your lashes? maybe curl your lashes after?
