How are you all? It has been some time since I have interacted with you all. Reason being my hectic schedule of frequent travelling, missed you all a lot! Today, I will be reviewing a mascara by Maybelline from their “Volume Express” range named – The One by One.
Finally, bold volume without any of the bulk.

My Experience with Maybelline Volum Express The One By One Mascara:
I have been a Maybelline loyalist for quite some time (for almost 3 years) and have been using the Maybelline Colossal Mascara. I wanted to experiment with other variants too, so thought of trying this one. The thing that caught my eye first was “the one by one “tag and the cute coral colour.
This mascara comes in a fluorescent coral and turquoise fat tube, like most of Maybelline mascaras. The wand (applicator) is named “lash catcher” and is pink in colour which obviously turns black after use as the mascara clings to it. The short and sturdy wand makes it easy to control. The tapered brush shape helps to cover the lashes in the corners of eyes. It’s great for accentuating bottom lashes.
The mascara spreads evenly to the lashes. True to its claim, it separates the lashes quite well. The lashes are coated quite well in a few strokes itself. This waterproof mascara helps to keep my curls in the lashes. I have oily skin and my eyelids tend to get quite oily but the mascara didn’t smudge at all or give me raccoon eyes even after using for 5 hours in this summer heat. Another thing I like about this mascara is that it is quite suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. I wear lenses on a daily basis, so there are times when mascara tends to irritate my eyes, but this hassle-free applicator gives a comparatively cleaner and mess-free experience.
In comparison to Colossal Mascara, I think this mascara separates the lashes quite easily and effectively. The wand is more user friendly and easy to use. It even clumps lesser than the Colossal Mascara.
All in all, I am quite happy with my experiment to choose this variant. I have taken the “Very Black” variant of this mascara and I must tell you it surely helps in giving a dramatic effect to the whole look.
Pros of Maybelline Volum Express The One By One Mascara:
- Gives volume to the lashes.
- Separates the lashes “one by one” quite effectively.
- Enriched with vitamin C.
- Ophthalmologist tested.
- Good coverage in 2-3 strokes.
- User-friendly wand.
- Quite suitable for contact lens wearer.
Cons of Maybelline Volum Express The One By One Mascara:
- Dries up too fast (though it may seem as a pro, but a lot of the product dries on the wand while applying).
- It’s a bit difficult to remove.
