Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara - Limited Edition



I've seen a lot of hype about the Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara: "The One by One" and I've been really tempted to try it, but I just have too much mascara as it is! However, a few days ago when I was trolling around my local  Target looking for sales, I noticed this beauty on sale for only $13.00. How can I go wrong?

This mascara is part of a limited edition range introduced to promote Maybelline's official sponsorship of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Australia. I can't go past the gorgeous packaging, I love the corset design around the lid, it's so cute!




I wasn't at all shocked to see how big the applicator was, as the whole point of the "One by One" name of this is to suggest it coats each eye lash "one by one."

After trying it for a few days, I decided I really liked it. Although you in no way get the effect that is advertised (you rarely do) it is still a great mascara.  It's nothing overly special, but it did make my eyelashes look volumised and a good bit longer, so I was pleased. It's definitely something I would wear out on a date with the boyfriend because it really does make my eyes pop!

It was also easy to remove, however did not smudge, which is definitely a god thing too! Some mascaras, when you're removing them, can become really grainy and disgusting, which I hate, but this comes off smoothly and doesn't make your eyelashes feel washed out afterwards, like some other heavy mascaras.




So have you tried anything from the limited edition range designed to promote the sponsorship?

  2. I think I might try this one, I use the waterproof version which is amazing, but I can't find it anywhere to repurchase which is so annoying! xx

  10. I recently have been on a mascara kick - I purchased 2 mascaras at Target both from Covergirl (Target had 50% off) and trying them out.

    The Maybelline packaging looks cute and the wand seems really interesting. Great review hun!
