I wear mascara most every day (except for the rare weekends when I am around the house all day...whose with me?!). In turn, I look for mascara that adds exceptional volume and length, doesn't clump or smudge and lasts until I choose to remove it...is that too much to ask?
The Guerlain Cils D'Enfer (which translates to "eyelashes from hell" in French) Maxilash Mascara easily ranks in my top four mascaras (along with Guerlain Le 2, Rouge Bunny Rouge Megaplumes and Mally Volumizing) in terms of this criteria.
Since its debut in late December 2012, I've found myself reaching for it multiple times a week!

Retailing for $30, this mascara boasts a beautiful soft gold square case and a medium-sized brush that dispenses the rich mascara formula evenly and in a clump-free manner. Like most Guerlain products, this mascara has a violet floral scent that dissipates quickly...thankfully, it has in no way irritated my sensitive, contact lens wearing eyes!
I generally apply two to three coats for maximum impact and find that it lasts the entire day without fallout or smudging...in the interim, my lashes are full and dark, yet remarkably flexible. This removes easily with soap and water or eye makeup remover.

Bottom Line: When I am in a hurry and can only apply two coats quickly, the Guerlain Cils D'Enfer MaxiLash is what I find myself reaching for most. Its medium-sized brush deposits the formula quickly and effortlessly and the length and volume I get from a few concerted seconds on each eye is significant! I adore the case (which feels a tad shorter than most mascara packaging) because it is gorgeous and nestles into my cosmetics bag with ease. Eyelashes from hell? I think not! I prefer to believe that this yields heavenly eyelashes instead ; ) Overall, this is a gorgeous mascara option for one in search of dark, lush and dangerously long lashes!
