Mega volume and a false lash effect awaits you with the new Milani Grandissimo Lashes Mascara ($5.49). This new Spring mascara launch promises to dramatically enhance and thicken even the littlest of lashes.
Like MAC I honestly haven’t tried and loved a Milani mascara. Sad little sigh. I love Milani but their mascaras don’t seem to ring my bell.
Milani Grandissimo Lashes Mascara sounds like a promising voluminzing mascara with it’s large bushy brush and promises of a false lash like finish. Although a club-like size the applicator is a bushy brush sans the plastic that brands have been embracing a plenty lately. The brush alone looks like something that would create some crazy very juicy, plump lashes.
Unfortunately Grandissimo is more like minimamosa. This has a lightweight texture that produces fluttery lashes sans any volume or great length to write home to mom about. If you desire straight lashes with a fluttery, more natural finish this is your mascara. However, if you’re expecting volume….well, no way is that happening. I mean this might sound odd but it actually made my lashes look smaller than they actually are…how the hell is that even possible?
The formula is quite lovely as it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave my lashes crunchy or stiff but it does give a stick straight finish sans any curl. Fluttery lashes can look very nice however, for me I want a bit more drama especially with a mascara named Grandissimo.
The mascara removes easily but doesn’t smudge on me or flake.
Overall, Milani Grandissimo didn’t work out for me unfortunately. It’s a more minimal look sans the grand volumizing lashes I expected and what the mascara is marketed as. Sorry Milani I just didn’t find anything to love here.
