Maybelline XXL Pro Extension Mascara How-To

So after much hemming and hauling, I decided to try out the Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions Mascara that I have heard so much about! A YouTube guru I love, Sam Schuerman, has talked about these for months and her lashes always look fantastic! So on a random trip out to Ulta, I picked up the Extensions Waterproof in the color Very Black. So far I love them! Watch the video for the how-to and I'll write more instructions below...
1. Curl your lashes. I have a cheap LaCrosse curler I used in the video, but I prefer my Elf eyelash curler my sis got me a while back. :)

2. Apply the white treatment gel labeled Step 1 on the tube. I put on two coats.

3. Chill a sec. Let them dry!

 4. Then I applied two coats of the black mascara (Step 2 on the tube).  
I didn't notice much clumping overall, but if any lashes stuck together then I just used my finger to wiggle them apart.

5. Look awesome.

You can pick up this mascara at any drugstore. I've seen it at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Ulta, Bed Bath and Beyond and Rite Aid.

It retails for around $6.00 depending on where you get it.
