Review of... Volum' Express the Colossal Mascara
Maybelline New York’s "Volum' Express the Colossal" Mascara says that it creates 7X the volume instantly as it creates "Colossal Lashes in just one coat!" Maybelline’s website http://www.maybelline.co.uk/ doesn’t offer a lot of information about the product however it does say that it’s waterproof but also available in a washable formula and is even safe to use with contact lenses. The website gives instructions for best result and this is to sweep the brush from root to tip. And although it claims that you only need one coat it does say "do not let dry between coats" obviously this is for (most) people who do in fact put on more than just the one coat.
Maybelline New York has a wide range of make-up products and even a variety of different mascaras each designed to do different things from waterproof to washable, volumizing to added curl. They also do a whole range of make-up products all of which are available in local supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug ect. however to browse products have a look at the website this will give a short but useful information about each product, however the UK version doesn’t allow to buy the products online but the U.S version does.
My Personal Experience
Now I use this Mascara almost every day and usually only put two or three coats and only very little on my bottom eyelashes as this is extremely pigmented so too much does make you look like you have spider eyelashes. I also like this as it is extremely waterproof however does come off easily with a makeup remover (or a lot of scrubbing.) Although it doesn’t claim to be smudge proof I personally find that it hardly moves if you rub your eyes and unlike some other mascaras I have used in the past this lasts all day and doesn’t create little black flakes under your eyes.
