Maybelline Volum' Express the Mega Plush Mascara - Review

June 12, 2012

Maybelline has came out with, yes, a new mascara. Something about this one was making me really intrigued to try it. It's pretty obvious that it was the tube, a nice and bright teal color. How could I not try it out? I have been pretty set on my MAC False Lashes mascara, but lately I have noticed my lashes falling down by the end of the day when I use it. My lashes are so straight, I need something that will hold curl. Did this Maybelline mascara do what I needed? Read on to find out!

Top lashes with only one coat.
Here is some more info on this mascara:
Now, mega volume goes mega plush.
• Our first gel-mousse mascara with 40% less hard waxes for massive volume with a supple touch
• Extra-soft, patented Flexor Brush caresses lashes
• Lashes never brittle or flaky
• Available in washable and waterproof formulas

 I expected to not like this mascara at all. I didn't have much hope for it. Once it tried it with one coat, I noticed how light it was. It didn't weigh my lashes down, and it didn't feel super wet like some mascara can be. I did a second coat right away and my lashes were fuller, had more volume, and stayed curled once it dried. This kind of mascara does not seem to give any real length. If your looking for length in a mascara, this might not be for you. My lashes are already long and kind of full, so I need something that will hold curl. It did exactly that! By the end of the day, I looked in the mirror and my lashes were exactly as how I had them in the morning. Full and curled.I did not have any smearing or smudging of any kind. This is almost a HG product for me. I have only used it for about 3 weeks, so I will update if it becomes a definite HG product.

Maybelline Volum' Express the Mega Plush mascara retails for $6.99.

Let me know if you have tried it and what you think!

  1. I so want to try this! I'm gonna try it when my Illegal Length gets too dry.

  2. The teal packaging is just eye-catching. Lovely. But as you mentioned, this might not be for me as I am looking for a lengthening one. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! :)

  3. I can't believe I haven't seen this one.. I'll be pulled in by the packaging </3  I love length but lasting power for curling is much better!

  4. I tried it but sadly it didn't work for me. Smeared within seconds:(

  5. I bought this mascara a few weeks ago, and I really love it as well! 

  6.  That was me too with the packaging. Lol hopefully you see it soon! :)

  7.  A good lengthening mascara is Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber mascara. My mom has mini lashes and this works great for her. Give it a try! :)

  8.  Yay! So glad you're loving it too! :)
