I have been using Maybelline mascara for as long as I can remember. I have never had a problem and my eyes always look great. I always get compliments on my eyes.
I used to watch my mom put on Maybelline makeup when I was a child. Maybelline is still around and that says a lot about the brand. Now I use Maybelline makeup just like my mother did so many years ago.
Maybelline has been around for decades, tried, tested, huge variety and a great value. There is not much difference in performance of most over the counter cosmetics so you stick with what will work. I change out cosmetics on a timely basis and using Maybelline allows cost-effectiveness in doing just that.
I have been using the Maybelline Hypercurl mascara. I thought that I might just be tired or dreary in the afternoon.. but no, I compared it to Clinique, and I only feel a bit itchy on the eyes when I use Maybelline. I will never ever purchase from them again. :(
I have been a loyal customer for 19 years. I used to buy mascara when I lived in Moldova - it costs there $7 too, just like in USA. But keep in mind, in Moldova my monthly income was $100, not like in USA, and yet still I was buying Maybelline mascara. I have been living in the USA for 9 years, all these years I am loyal to Maybelline. Looks like it's time to look for a better product and customer service. I bought a new mascara - Rocket, and used it twice; one time on Mother's day and second time last Sunday, May 26, 2019. Both times towards the evening my eyes would feel like being on fire, and I had to remove the mascara to get relief.
The last time I was driving when my eyes started burning, it was around 6 pm. I had my Mom next to me. I had to drive with excruciating pain and first with one eye only open and at the end I couldn't keep my eyes open being a danger to myself, my Mom and others on the road. I drove home the last 2 minutes with my eyes closed. All I asked when I called customer service is to get refunded. I was told I would get confirmation about the refund by email, and the check will be mailed. 3 hours later I had no confirmation in my email. I called 3 times, and 3 times the beauty consultants hung up on me and never asked for a call back number or followed up. It took the 4th call, 4 hours and a supervisor to get email confirmation. Shame, shame, shame!!!

I’ve only started using Dream matte mousse for a few days only because the previous foundation I use it no longer in stock. So I thought I’ll use this as when I was younger it always covered nicely. Now using it I have what I describe sunburnt feeling skin and dry rash like feel on my face down to my neck with constant burning feeling. I do not recommend this product and no I don’t have sensitive skin.
What is different about your eyeliner? It used to stay on all day. Now it dissipates in less than 2 hours, even when lighting the end. Also sharp point breaks off during application, constantly resharpening. Burning sensation to eyes with use of this eyeliner, this has never happened in the past with your products. What is going on, we need great long lasting easy application pencil eyeliner that last all day.
Hi, I am a working 67 year old woman, I buy your Falsies mascara all the time. In the past several months every time I purchase it almost dried up when I get it home. I went to several different places only to find I am getting the same results. I am a loyal customer at this time but you need to fix this problem or I will try another product.
@maybelline “IF IT ISN'T BROKE DONT FIX IT.” I for one am getting tired of searching for new foundations from this company. First they did away with my favorite shade (Carmel Dark 2) and now the airbrush mousse? Stop trying to create new products that aren’t any good. You're destroying the brand trying to stay trendy! Every time I get comfortable with the new liquid foundation they change it again! I'm so done! And this Satin crap is garbage. Very highly disappointed!
This was the worst eyebrow coloring system I have ever used. Does not even come close to the tattoo look. Does not give any natural color to the eyebrow. Tried going slow as the directions say, just is wet and doesn't last. Junk.
Recently a week ago I have purchased Maybelline Dream Satin compact from Gian Chand Darshan Lal shop from sector 20 B in Chandigarh. I would like you to know this was the worst purchase I have ever made. It indulge me into skin problems up to a great extent. My skin got burned and it turns into red patches on my face. I invested in this product on the basis of brand name but this was very disappointing to see the results after 1st use.
I am a regular customer of other products of Maybelline, but this kind of result of the premium product segment is not appreciable. I have applied this product once and went back to the shopkeeper and told about the skin problem which I get into after applying this worst product. I have asked him to take back this product. This piece is as fresh as new pieces but he refused to took back. I want compensation for this as well as refund asap... Please suggest a way forward.
After applying it for twice or thrice it is just a piece of stick in my collection, because it is not long lasting and even neither gives you matte look or shiny one... It is worthless product... I bought it for 375 which is a good price for branded lipsticks but it is waste...
This makeup (Better Skin Concealer) made my skin break out in a rash for 7 months. Allergic Reaction. It cost me hundreds of dollars for meds. Doctor visits. Dermatology visits. Not to mention lost work because I was so sick. What is in that stuff????
I recently bought Maybelline Master Prime redness control face primer. It absolutely does not control redness in any way. It also feels like you just put a layer of Vaseline on your face and it doesn't dry. The color green is supposed to offset red but the product is almost white with the very smallest hint of green. I just wanted to say to Maybelline thank you for thinking that the American working woman is such a joke that you can happily take their money in exchange for crap like this!
I have bought wet and wild products in the past that are much more quality than what you are selling. Maybelline is a company that's been around for a hundred years and I'm sure the founders of Maybelline are ashamed of the products you're putting out now. Now I see why your company only has a one-star rating. You have lost my business (and hopefully anyone reading this) forever. To The Other Women consumers out there... If we stop buying this product then maybe the stores would stop selling this crap and give us something worth our money.
I bought an eyeshadow palette for a party. I got it home and as I went to open it up to use it went all over my cream carpet in my bedroom, totally ruining it as I’ve cleaned it on a number of occasions but it just won’t come clean and the colours that were broke were plum colours. I went back to the shop the following week and there were all the same all the dark colours were broken. I waited for the next delivery and went and bought another one, I get it home and open it and it was exactly the same. I wrote to Maybelline and sent them all the photos and they ignored me for around 8 weeks. I wrote to them again and they were quite rude with me, they then insulted me with a £10 voucher. No apology. Nothing. It turned out to be a really expensive night out as I needed to replace my carpet in the end???
For an economical price, Maybelline products perform above average. Their mascara is one of my favorites and a great value. Along with their foundation and eye shadow, I are very satisfied with all Maybelline products.
I purchased the tattoo eyebrow from Maybelline and followed the instructions. Worked ok not brilliant, and later that afternoon started to get a itchy rash. Took off my makeup and applied e45. Woke up the next morning to a swollen face and eyes and a angry itchy rash over my face and eyes, had to go and buy allergy tablets to try and help!! Would not recommend this product!! This is the first time I have used their products and definitely will be the last time.
Their color choices are great and I have never had the mascara smear or smudge. The base makeup doesn't feel like you’re wearing a mask, but feels fresh and they have a wonderful array of lipstick colors that match almost everyone’s skin color.
I have been using Maybelline mousse for years now. Mousse has been the only makeup that fits my skin tone and blends well. Recently, I've bought it and it have my eyes and face very irritated with rash and gives and burning. I washed my face numerous times and I've been on ** for a week. It's sad that these companies put harmful ingredients in their products. I will no longer be using their products. Disgusted!
In searching for a new foundation for mature skin, FIT Me Dewy + Smooth was one of two brands that came highly recommended - and the first one I tried. I'm 51 years old and frequently mistaken for a 30-something. My skin tone is uneven, blemish-free, no blackheads, small pores, slight redness across the bridge of my nose and cheeks and I inherited dark circles under my eyes. Not knowing what to expect the first time, I cleansed my face as usual, skipped moisturizer, applied my usual primer - and after 10 minutes or so (my usual wait time between applications) I applied FIT Me Dewy + Smooth. While the foundation had a slight-medium thickness coming out of the bottle, the same definitely was not true when applied to my face - it felt so lightweight.
This foundation was easy to apply and blend and felt like silk once set. Without powder. The coverage was even and my skin actually looked 'dewy' - a term I thought was simply an overused marketing ploy - which was a very nice surprise! FIT Dewy + Smooth lasted all day which, for me, was a first. In fact, my face still looked 'dewy' until I washed it just before going to bed! The second morning, I used moisturizer after cleansing and primer before foundation. Everything was the same as the day before - except it didn't last all day. I skipped moisturizer on day three and, just as I had suspected, it made a huge difference. The foundation again lasted until bedtime. LOVE this product - and I will definitely recommended to friends! I am now searching for under eye coverage, any recommendations? P.S. I didn't bother trying the second foundation. FIT Dewy + Smooth is amazing!
This past New Year's, 2017, I purchased two new eyeshadows manufactured by Maybelline, New York: Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon Eyeshadow. I applied them, as directed -- and have worn cosmetics my entire life. Unfortunately, at the New Year's Party, my eyes began to feel dry and sore, as if I had been punched in both eyes. When I got home both eyelids were swollen. I removed all the make-up, put some cold compresses on my lids, which relieved the discomfort, and went to sleep. The next morning, my eyelids were red, puffy, itchy and one eyelid had a small bubble on it. Fortunately, I got an appointment with my dermatologist that afternoon and she prescribed a steroid-based salve, which relieved the allergic symptoms, BUT it took a full 4 weeks for the redness and itching to go away. Consumers beware of these particular eyeshadow sticks! Obviously, the concentration of ingredients can irritate delicate skin around our eyes.
I have been using "great lash mascara" for many, many years. About 9 months ago I purchased two pkgs. due to a promotion. The first pkg. I opened felt very lightweight. It was lightweight because there was not a drop of mascara in the container and the brush was completely dry. I started using the second container and I believe that Maybelline has changed the formula. The mascara is filled with small clumps that look nasty on my lashes. My eyelids have been red and itching. Please go back to the original formula that I loved for 30 + years.
I have always used Maybelline products with no issues. I bought the Master Precise eyeliner in Black Comet. I loved it, no issues. Bought another one 2 weeks ago and it's causing my eyelid to become red and swollen. I stopped wearing it for a week and my eyelid returned to normal. Yesterday; I decided to try it again. BAD MISTAKE! My eye started hurting about two hours into work, then would water. It burned throughout the day until I could get home and wash it off. Last night my eyelid was so heavy, and then I couldn't see. My eye burned and watered in stop. I don't know if something has changed with this recent purchase, but something is not right. I see so many others experiencing the same red swollen eyelid effects.
I recently started using the Unstoppable eyeliner, a quad PK of eyeshadow and great lash mascara. I have used Maybelline in the past but most recently used a different brand for a while. Bought this because it was cheaper. After a week or so of use, my eyelids were red, itchy and rough. They began swelling and looking puffy. Then a few days later, I woke up like this picture on Sunday Dec 17. I have narrowed it down to the makeup as the cause. Never again will I use anything made by this company. I have never in my life had a reaction to anything. What are you putting in these products?
I use the eye care products that bring out the beauty of the natural eye. I love the mascara that darkens and separates each eye lash. When the product is applied at the right angles, I notice that my eyes appear to sparkle. Perhaps it is my opinion, but I like it. Additionally, this company makes the colors that bring out the best in me. I look better in certain colors and many companies do not carry what I need. However, Maybelline makes the shades that work best for me and I will continue to use their products as long as I can. Thanks for a great product.
I used Maybelline purple eyeliner on my eyes and within a matter of 2 hours my eye was itching. In a matter of 5 hours swollen watery and both eyes look like I have pink eye or something wrong. Infection bad.
I've used the Age Rewind forever and never had a problem but I decided to switch up my concealer and wanted to try the Fit Me. First time using didn't seem to have a problem but the second time I noticed a burning sensation which is an automatic red flag for me. I didn't use it again. When I woke up the next day I noticed tightness on my face, seemed a bit dry and red. It has now been 3 days and it has just gotten worse. My cheeks are swollen. My face is extremely itchy. Thankfully I have an appointment with my doctor in the morning hoping to get some relief. I will not purchase another Maybelline product ever again.
Decided to try some new foundation so I picked out the Velvet Dream. That night my face was itching and I had bumps all over it. I've never had issues with any make-up products. That night I decided it was the new foundation. I thoroughly washed my face and haven't put anything on it since. Two days later and my face is still not back to normal. I immediately discontinued use and threw it in the garbage where it will remain. What is going on Maybelline?
I have used Maybelline products for over 40 years and never had a problem. Recently I have bought new mascara and eye makeup remover. I broke out in a horrible rash under my eyes. The rash then moved to my top eyelids. Itchy and burning. I went to my ophthalmologist, dermatologist and internist and through a process of elimination discovered it was my Maybelline eye products. I will be notifying all my Doctors so they too can pass along suggestions to future patients. I strongly suggest Maybelline reconsider their new formulas, especially after reading all these negative reviews.
I have happily used this product for several years. However, my latest purchase has resulted in my eyes burning and tearing badly about 20 minutes after I've applied it. At first I thought maybe it was something in the air, but after the reaction I had again this morning (My third application) there's no longer any doubt that it's the eyeliner.
