Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara Review

Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara Review

Pros
-gel-mousse formula, no brittle feel
-super cute packaging
-flexible brush

Cons
-brush is too big, hard to work with

What I love:

  1. The formula is awesome!  Maybelline did a terrific job with the formula.  I doubted the water consistency at first but it dries so soft that I could touch my lashes all day without having any fall out.  My lashes are very soft and flexible and they don't feel stiff!
  2. The flexible wand makes it easier to wipe excess product on the side of the tube.  With a non flexible brush when you wipe of the excess product it squishes and flattens the brush making application clumpy to begin with.  With the flexible wand it keeps the brush plump and in shape so application is flawless.
What I don't love:

  1. The size of the bristles!  Unless  you have extremely long lashes, I will not recommend this to you.  It's obnoxiously big and very difficult to work with.  Application for the top and bottom lashes was a pain, and got most of the product got on my lid, sides of my eyes, and below my lash line.  If the bristle were smaller and didn't require so much clean up afterwards, this could have been an terrific mascara.

Would I repurchase? Nah probably not... But I'll continue to use it till it expires!!!

And if you didn't know, mascara shelf life is only 3 months ;)

I know bummer.

Thanks for the review! I have small eyes/eyelashes and thought that this type of mascara would be light but the bristles looked a little big ^_^ Now I know without having to waste my money.

And thank you for the 3 month shelf life info, I did not know that.
