Review Monday- Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Waterproof Mascara

hi loves,

               I know is been ages since ive posted, i missed blogging a lot. I will be continuing as usual pretty soon so bare with me. So today i will be reviewing Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Waterproof Mascara in Black, wow that is a mouth full :).  If you want to check out my mascara junkie haul click here

let me tell you how i ended up buying this mascara, i had been wanting colossal for a while now, i looked up reviews and stuff so when i was in the store i saw the yellow tube and i picked it up without even checking if it was colossal, and i ended up with Maybelline Magnum Volum Express instead. And i even picked up the wrong colour i picked up washable brown instead of black. I went back and purchased black again since i couldn't return it. I know sucks rite. 

lets get started with the review 

What Maybelline claims
* 9X more volume
* Collagen formula pumps & volumizes lashes giving that luscious look
* seeks out the smallest lashes and coats them evenly
* no clumping 

The Brush

I love the brush, its exactly like the one from falsies, since it has a lot of bristles it would help coat all of your lashes.

The Review

My bare lashes

Ive curled my lashes prior to applying mascara. I applied two coats of magnum on to my lashes. I am not sure if you can see in the picture, but it took a while for this mascara to dry, but fortunately it didn't smudge and cause raccoon eyes . It did coat my lashes evenly and give it a good definition, but i didn't get that false lash effect like it did with the falsies. When i look for a mascara i actually look for volume, lots and lots of it, and if you noticed in first picture where my lashes are bare, you can see that i have a lot of lashes, but once the product was applied my lashes clumped. 

And this product is a pain to get off, well if your using garnier make up remover milk that is, or even if you use a cleansing oil. No matter how much i tried it wouldn't come of. But if you use a make up remover it removes the mascara off in a few swipes. 

In a nutshell


- water proof
- lasts all day
- no smudging
- holds the curl
- affordable


- difficult to remove with remover milk
- doesn't volumize much
- clumps slightly
- would be hard to achieve volume with thin short lashes

I would rate this product 7.5/10

i would recommend this mascara to those who have full lashes and just want a few coats of mascara. Actually i am not disappointed with this product i just wish it would add extra volume.

A tube of Maybelline Magnum mascara retails at RM35.90 at watson or guardian.
