Hi all, another review finally after ages off again. Honestly today is the first time this week I have had even a little time to do something other than child or house related. I really just dont get much time to update this blog as much as I would like.
Anyway two additions to the 'Maybelline Volum'Express' range one new one and one old one that does not seem to get much of a mention.
Now normally I am NOT a fan of Maybelline mascaras. I did not like 'Great Lash' and I loathe the 'Falsies' range as just grrr I hate it! (SORRY about that the whole of the internet I just didn't like it) . But mascara is quite an individual thing. What does not work for me clearly does for almost everyone else (the Falsies) and what I like may not work for you. I have run out and tried a mascara that makes my friends lashes look great but makes mine look rubbish and spidery. I do believe lash length and thickness naturally do make a huge, huge difference in how a mascara works for you.
Before mascara:- (I have no other make up on today as my skin has just broken out pre the monthly visit so apologies)
The formula is quite thick as you would expect especially from a waterproof mascara. But is is a little messy. This is one of those mascaras where your tube gets all messy especially around the neck so be warned.
It can also get a little clumpy if you dont work really fast in application. I normally do one coat each eye the go back for the 2nd but with this you need to do one eye at a time or when you go back in to do the 2nd coat it will clump.
I do like this mascara but its not going to be an HG mascara but I think if I could not get my favourites and I needed a new one I would re purchase this .
The ONE BY ONE Volum'Express Mascara
Before Mascara :-
£7.19 for the Colossal and £8.49 for the One By One.
The wands together to give you an idea of sizes :- One by One left Colossal Right.
I am not comparing these mascaras in a v's manner as they do claim to do different things I just happen to be reviewing them at the same time. But I do feel curl and curl hold is important in a mascara so that I will compare . Especially as the One By One claims to give you curl and the Colossal does not. Again I do think this has quite alot to do with waterproof formulas. As they do seem to hold curl better.
I will still be going back to my favourite mascara of the moment though which is my L'Oreal Double Extension. Which claims to be just a lengthening mascara but it gives lots of volume too. I prefer the waterproof version of this one too but I literally just threw the empty tube out yesterday so here is a picture of the Serum, version of the same mascara.
With two coats:-
I just love this one. It does cost more at £11.29 and if you do check it out I would recommend the waterproof one more. But this serum one is good too.
What do you think? have you tried any of these mascaras? Follow and comment below :) xx
