Name: Volum’ Express Waterproof
From Maybelline’s website:
This waterproof mascara delivers up to 3X the volume instantly for a dramatic lash look.
Patented Anti-Clump Brush and volume-building express formula quickly thicken lashes without clumps or globs.
What I liked:
- lasts all day
- gives lashes a natural look
- easy application
What I didn’t like:
- the fragrance
- the packaging
- it clumps
- doesn’t deliver up to 3X the volume instantly
I have short eyelashes so I’m always looking for a mascara that lengthens and gives volume to them. Maybelline Volum’ Express Waterproof mascara claims to deliver up to 3X the volume instantly. However, I couldn’t really see a difference after I applied the first coat. It didn’t lengthen my eyelashes at all and it barely provide any volume. I applied a couple more coats and my lashes looked a bit longer and fuller. It still doesn’t give you a dramatic look though. I think this is very natural-looking and not overly noticeable and if that is the look you want, or if you have long eyelashes, then this mascara is for you.
The tube is fat and the brush is fairly short and straight. It is supposed to be an anti-clumping brush, but the mascara still clumped a little. The formula has a wet feel to it and the mascara goes on easily. I don’t really like the fragrance. It smells like oil, which is very unpleasant. However you can’t smell it at all when the mascara is applied. This mascara is waterproof, doesn’t flake and lasts all day.
The mascara contains beeswax, which provides the main body of the mascara and makes it waterproof and smudgeproof, and glyceryl stearate, which is used to make sure the mascara can be washed off. However, because it is waterproof, it doesn’t come off easily.
This mascara is great if you want a natural look. But if you want a dramatic and intense look then this is not for you. The mascara is waterproof, smudgeproof and lasts all day. However, it clumps.
