I would like to do a review on a Maybelline mascara that is exclusive to Asia only, unfortunately.
Volum Express Waterproof Mascara from Maybelline is a waterproof mascara that quickly gives lashes a dramatic look with up to three times more volume. With its patented brush and formula it rapidly thickens lashes without lumping. The mascara suitable for users of contact lenses and allergy sufferers, and it is also available as water soluble and with with a curved brush.
Price on Xtras.co.uk: £5.99
Even though in the product description i took from Amazon said it to be a waterproof mascara. In truth, it is not a waterproof mascara since the waterproof version has a blue packaging. However, it does lengthening my short stubby Asian lashes. Now lets move onto my opinon on the pros and cons of this mascara.
1. As mentioned above, it lengthenings almost twice the length of my lashes
2. Does not smudge even though it's not a waterproof mascara
3. One coat is enough to have really long lengthened lashes
4. Really black in color
5. Dries averagely
1. No volume, lengthening only
2. Too much fibres for my own personal liking
3. It applies very wet, but does dry down quickly
In addition, it applies very glossy but it does dry down to a semi-matte color.
Overall, i love this mascara, i think it will become my no.1 favourite as its very hard to find a mascara that works for my short Asian lashes. It feels comfortable and it does not irritate my eyes even though it has many fibres in it. Also, there's no fall out of those fibres when applying the mascara onto the lashes. If you have the same problem as myself who finds it hard to find a mascara that works on your short lashes. Then you can give this mascara a try!
Hope everyone likes and enjoys it.
Have a nice day everyone!
