Maybelline is one of the brands that offer a wide selections of mascara. I recently treat myself to one, after taking my time contemplating whether I need a mascara or not since I rarely put on makeup these days. However, when Hermo did a sale for Maybelline during the 7.7 sale, I am hooked with the price slash! So, I decided to try the Maybelline Volume Express Hypercurl Mascara.

How to Use:
The packaging is really sleek, black tube with a pink cap. The width and size is just nice to fit in a small pouch. It looks nice on my vanity table ❤️
The mascara’s applicator is the curved type, intended to curl the lashes. The unique thing about this this of applicator is it is an anti-clump applicator brush that separates each lash while curling them, avoiding the clumpy and messy effects.
Honestly, I am not really a fan of mascara because most of the mascaras that I have tried, from other brands as well, tend to put some weight on my lash, making my eyes feel tired of the added weight at times. It makes me uncomfortable to have it on.
I have a naturally long, straight eyelashes. Ya, I know, we all dream to have the curled, long eyelashes. So, mascara comes in handy to help.
I bought the shade Brown and let me tell ya, at first I am a bit afraid how a brown mascara would make my eyelashes look weird but when I put it on my lashes, it is more to like dark brown, so it does looks natural. Yeay!
I do find applying the mascara is easy and less messy as compared to thick type applicator. With a single coat, the curling effect is visible and it looks pretty. It does not clump my lashes, and I really like that about this mascara. It makes my eyelashes look thick, curled and longer. Major love for the effects.
This mascara has the common mascara scent, but not overpowering and it subsides as the mascara dries down on the lashes. As long as the scent does not linger too long, I approved of the mascara.
It dries quite fast, so do remember to be quick to apply it on your lashes, with the zig zag motion.
Surprisingly, this Maybelline Volume Express Hypercurl Mascara feels very lightweight on my eyelashes,even with 1 coating of it, it does not add too much weight to my lashes. So, it is comfortable to have on for a good few hours.
Another plus point is the mascara is Smudge-proof. I tried rubbing my eyes and it stayed put without any fallouts.
If you are going to an outdoor activity and wanting a long lasting mascara, this is the one you should give a try. It is waterproof type mascara. So, do use a oil-based cleanser/makeup remover to properly wash it off at the end of the day.
