Maybelline Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara

I have this in the waterproof version.

I love this mascara. There is no clumping and I only need to use one coat. Not only does it create length it also thickens my lashes. Even though it’s waterproof it is extremely easy to remove and it holds curl great. If you do want to build up coats I recommend you do it while it’s still wet or you will get spider lashes.

I love the brush of this one. The tapered end makes it easy to get to the corner lashes and the long bristles separate your lashes. 

I would give this mascara a 5/5.

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
