OVER HYPED: Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express Mascara

From Great Lash to Colossal, Maybelline has got a pretty good rep when it comes to making mascaras, but let’s cut to the chase; I found this mascara horrible. For me the formula of this mascara was wet, clumpy and goopy, it never seemed to really dry which resulted in numerous smudges… This brings me onto my next issue, the wand. Props to Maybelline for coming up with something different, but for me the wand just made this mascara 10x more difficult to apply. This mascara has a bendy, flexible wand (or as Maybelline call it a Flexor brush) which is meant to coat every lash for maximum volume,  it definitely coats every lash but it also coats your entire eyelids too. And, if by volume they meant major clumps, then yes this mascara gives you maximum volume. Maybe I just got a bad batch? Either way, I didn’t like it.


The Daily Face - Drugstore Mascara

I tested out some drugstore brand volumizing mascaras and here’s what I found.

1. Maybelline Volum'Express Mega Plush

- great at separating lashes

- not super black (though that can be great if you’re looking for something more natural, without loosing volume.)

- did not straighten out my curled lashes

- did not add length (Though it doesn’t claim to.)

- bendy wand made it a little difficult to apply - needed a lot of coats

- not the most voluminous (probably due to it’s lighter color)

2. L'Oreal Voluminous Power Volume 24H

- lot’s of volume

- good separation

- adds length

- did not straighten curled lashes

- multiple coats built volume without getting too clumpy

- very black

3. Neutrogena Healthy Volume

- good separation

- very black

- adds length

- did not straighten curled lashes

- no clumps

4. Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam

- very black

- straighten curled lashes slightly

-weakest in separation (But I sometimes love a more clumped together look)

- add a little length
