The Review | Maybelline The Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara

before we go any further, yes i know that this isn't 'new' anymore. sorry for being a bad beauty blogger and not getting round to reviewing this quicker, but i've seen so many mixed reviews on this that i wanted to throw mine into the mix.
for any of you who haven't heard of this before, this is the Maybelline The Mega Plush Volum' Express Gel-Mousse Mascara. in simple terms, the gel-mousse formula means that there is 40% less hard wax which is supposed to give extra volume which enticed me in, along with all the hype that was around this when it released.
but i wasn't really impressed. first off, i usually only use waterproof mascaras, and at the time there wasn't that option with this. i found that it flaked off my lashes and gathered under my eyes. i didn't think there was all that much volume either, and i have other mascaras which give my lashes more of a boost. maybe it's the flexi wand that i just didn't get on with (which, in my opinion, is far too 'flexy' to get a decent grip and coat on your lashes) which is to blame, but for a mascara that promises extra volume, i was let down. 
the only thing i could recommend this for is a 'no-makeup makeup' look. i'll try working with it a little more, but i don't think this will be repurchased!

have any of your girls tried this? if so, what did you think?

  2. Interesting review. I've got this mascara but haven't opened it yet as I'm using up some other ones first. I must admit that after reading a few reviews on it, I'm not expecting much from it. I was really excited for this to come out in the UK as it was so talked about by American YouTubers but it seems like it could be a let down...
