A while back I did a review on Maybelline Falsies Mascara and it didn’t win me over. So when I saw Maybelline released another mascara I wasn’t too tempted to give it try. But I can’t stay away from new products for too long, especially mascaras, so I finally gave in and picked up the Maybelline Volum’ Express One by One Mascara. First thing I have to say is that I am loving Maybelline’s packaging! First it was the purple for the Falsies and now this awesome tangerine and turquoise combo! They really know how to catch your eye while strolling through the makeup isle!
The brush is pretty big and really soft, which I was worried about at first. I am a firm believer that a brush is usually more important than the formula when it comes to mascara. So when I saw that the brush was soft, I thought there was no way it would be able to comb through all my lashes the way I am used to.
According to the Maybelline website:
Why You’ll Love It
Finally, bold volume without any of the bulk.
• Patented Lash Catcher™ brush has 3 bristles per lash to make every lash count
• Catches, coats and de-clumps each lash to make them all fatter and flirtier
• Instant clump-free volume
• Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist-tested
• Washable, also available in Waterproof formula
This picture is with two coats. I think if I did 10 coats this mascara would not clump!!! It really does what they claim it does! With one coat you get more lengthening, add a second and you get more volume. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised and I love this new mascara. I find it similar to Cover Girls Lash Blast but only cheaper! Only $6.50! My shade is blackest black, if you want big lashes you can’t go wrong with the darkest shade available!
I have read other reviews and some people where saying how they were put off by the smell. One said it smelled like perfume and one said BEER!! I personally didn’t smell anything. I normally don’t put my mascara up to my nose to take a wiff at it! But I think I love this mascara as much as my Loreal Voluminous! (Gasp!) This was my first day using it and I think mascaras tend to get better after a few tries. If you were one of the people who loved the Falsies then I would pick this one up ASAP! I think it is soo much better!
Let me know your thoughts on it!
