Maybelline Volum' Express Mega Plush Mascara: A Review!

Maybelline mascaras have been getting a lot of hype lately, so I decided to try one for myself. The Maybelline Volum' Express Mega Plush mascara is the first Maybelline mascara that I have tried, and so far, I have really enjoyed it! When reading reviews on this mascara, I mostly heard that it was a mascara for a more "natural" look. Even though the mascaras that I usually buy are volumizing mascaras (like the Covergirl Lash Blast), I like the more natural look, and not the clumpy, overly-volumed mascara look. When I heard about this mascara, I decided to try it out.

At first, I wasn't quite in love with this mascara, however, the more I used it, the more I fell in love. This is now by go-to everyday mascara.

This mascara has a large brush with flexible bristles and a flexible wand. I can't say that I'm a huge fan of the flexible wand. It bends back to up to a 45 degree angle (sorry for the math talk) but it does give your lashes a more natural look. The mascara has a gel-mousse formula, making it go on the lashes very easily. It doesn't clump on your lashes a lot, and it is very buildable without looking very clumpy. The mascara also spreads the lashes really well, making it look like that you have a ton of lashes.

Even though I really like this mascara, one of the problems I have is that if I do want big lashes, this mascara doesn't quite do the job. This mascara is buildable, however, if you want bold lashes, this mascara may not be the one.

   -Spreads out and separates lashes
   -Light formula, so easy to apply
   -Good for the natural, everyday look

   -Doesn't give a ton a volume
   -The flexible wand may not be for everyone
   -Light formula may not be for someone who wants a lot of volume.

Overall Rating: 9 out of 10

Overall, I really like this mascara. The flexible wand is not my favorite part, but I do like how it gives me a natural look, while still volumizing my lashes. I also really like how it separates my lashes. If you are looking for a natural looking mascara for school or work, I would recommend this mascara.

I hope you enjoyed this and it was helpful!
