Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara Review

maybelline hypercurl volum express mascara review

  • Instant Volume-Building Express Formula quickly thickens eyelashes.
  • Patented Curved Anti-Clump Brush performs separated eyelashes.
  • Ultra Waterproof formula ensures long lasting wear.
  • Curly Fix Formula fixes and curls up the lashes instantly for 75º curl lasting 18 hours.
Price : Rs 175

Shade : Very Black

What I like about Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara :

  • I have been using this mascara from past few days and liking it.
  • A great day time mascara when you don’t want too much going on but would want some definition to your eyelashes.
  • it stays on all day long on me. I mean I have applied this mascara and have gone out, cooked, splashed water on my face but it does’t go off until I remove it.
  • It does not weigh down my eyelashes. It holds up the curls for around 6 hours.
  • It does not flake or smear.
  • It is not a pain to take off unlike a few waterproof mascaras.
  • Have never stung my eyes.
  • I love the price.
  • It has very little clumping but I am kinda ready to forgive that much.
  • The formula is neither too thick nor too dry . It does give you enough time to coat your lashes nicely before it dries.
  • I didn’t feel any hardness on my eyelashes even after hours of wearing it.
  • Cute fat packaging.
  • The shape of the brush is a little curved so it curls my lashes even without using a lash curler. The short bristles coat every lash nicely.

What I don’t like about Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara :

  • It does not add as much volume as much as I would have preferred.
  • I find it every difficult to apply mascara on my lower lashes with the curvy brush.
  • Also, the fact that the “fatness ” :P of the brush is same throughout, it gets difficult to coat the inner lashes.

After a long time I have picked up a drugstore mascara and I am quite liking it. It’s lovely for day time when you don’t want too much drama for your eyes. It gives you nice curl , lengthens your lashes , adds a little volume and makes you look totally awake. It does not look fake. I am reaching out for this mascara more often than not these days.

If you are someone who likes alot of a drama to eyelashes, this may not be for you. It looks quite natural …

I am not madly in love with it but I can definitely repurchase it for what it is. :)

Its giving a nice natural look your lashes :)) I have so many mascaras right now….have started using them everyday! Liking Oriflame GG lash fascination in ‘Brown’ these days!

Reply

Rati August 1, 2011 at 12:23 am

yeah it kinda nicely separates my lashes and ads a bit of a volume. :) brown does look nice. i have a plum one. i use that a lot as well. they look subtle than black one. :)

lp August 1, 2011 at 12:11 am

For the price it is definitely worth a try!!! Especially for teens and those who cant wear much makeup. ITs subtle, Me likeee :)

Hawww its really cheap !! I didnt like the wand much, but still for the price it looks good!

Reply

Rati August 1, 2011 at 12:28 am

yeah it gets difficult to coat the lower lashes esp with the curvy brush. i end up applying mascara underneath my eyes as well. :P

Reply

Anuradha August 1, 2011 at 12:43 am

Whatta price!!!!! :woot: :woot: :woot: But since volume is a chief concern-may be I will stick to our old friend Colossal volume- :shame: :shame: and is it difficult to remove from the lashes like its big Sis??? ?:)

Reply

Rati August 1, 2011 at 9:29 am

no I didnt find it difficult to remove this. Infact i used to find it so difficult to remove my el waterproof mascara. this toh oil + rose water-two swipes and off. So that was nice. :)

Reply

Dee August 1, 2011 at 12:45 am
