Volum' Express® Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline

 (Images/Info from Maybelline website)

For an Asian,  I am blessed with longer lashes than the norm (although not as long as falsies!) and I tend to look for volumising mascaras more than lengthening ones.
Seeing this in the drugstore,  I decided to give this a try as I've had good ones from Maybelline in the past.

This is what was advertised:
  • This waterproof mascara delivers up to 3X the volume instantly for a dramatic lash look.
  • Patented Anti-Clump Brush and volume-building express formula quickly thicken lashes without clumps or globs.
  • Contact lens safe and hypoallergenic
  • Waterproof; Also available in washable and curved brush


Apply mascara from your outer lash to inner lash, sweeping brush slowly from root to tip. Do not let dry between coats.  

This mascara is available in 2 colours, black and brown. I bought the black version.
My initial take when I first used this. 

It has a fat brush with a thicker middle section and large bristles. It was quite easy to put on and doesn’t clump at all. Their patented anti-clump brush works!After using it numerous times, I never had a problem with clumping.

The effect is a really natural finish though, almost as if you have no mascara on. The volume is not on the extreme end, what it gives is a stronger definition on the lashes. I guess this is where their anti-clumping brush shines, because the amount of mascara that comes out is not thick, less chance of clumping.
A good option for days when you want to have minimal makeup or for those who want to look a la naturale!
I also discovered that if you continue to coat your lashes a few more times before the initial coat dries out, you do build up more volume.

Luv ~ A good option for those who prefer minimal/natural makeup. Easy to apply and the result is very natural looking lashes.

Don’t luv ~ For those who are looking for more volumising mascara, this is not the one.
