When I ran out of my Maybelline Volum’ Express Cat Eyes Mascara, I decided to try something different just so I can make a proper review for you all. Among the selection at the Maybelline counter, I chose the Magnum Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara. It’s supposed to give the lashes 9x more volume with its collagen formula and mega brush.
What do I actually think about it? Read on. 🙂
First, I gotta say that the brush is indeed mega! It’s slightly curved in (like a convex) on one side then curved out on the other. I find that the convex site is best used when applying the first coat. It fits right into the shape of my eyes so I can get to the roots of my lashes. The curved out side on the other hand is great for building up the coat and adding volume.
Putting the mascara on with this mega wand is not easy, though. The wand is a bit too bulky. Especially for me with short lashes, I always manage to get some product on my top lash line. It’s even trickier when I try getting it on my bottom lashes.
Despite my struggles with the wand, however, I do believe that I get good volume from this. If you’re like me and enjoy having full on lashes, I suggest applying at least two coats to get the best result. Doing so not only adds volume to the lashes but also accentuates its lenght.
The photo below shows you the difference between my left eye, which has mascara on, and the right eye. I’m sorry for the messy brows. I haven’t had the time to go to the salon to have it threaded. I will do so soon! I promise! Even I am getting disgusted with them 🙂
Oh and for those who might be wondering, I’ve got contacts on because I’m blind without them. They’re cheap, disposable ones from EO optical.
Notice how my lashes are almost invisible without the help of mascara?
I’ve also asked my friend Lei to take a photo of the lashes from the side so that you can see the length.
Too close??? Hahaha Sorry, there was no other way to show you guys what I meant.
For PHP399, I think this product is totally worth it. Great results at a great price! What more can anyone ask for?
