Maybelline: Magnum Volum' Express (Waterproof) Mascara

Monday, July 30, 2018 Philippines


Ever since in college, I knew that Maybelline is famous for their mascara products. Specially coming from a drugstore brand. Choosing from their products is kind of hard because Maybelline has a lot to offer when it comes to mascara, the Magnum Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara is just one of it. 

So far here are the Maybelline Mascaras that I was able to try and posted a review about:

I was able to test its waterproof powers accidentally when I forgot to remove my makeup and I was watching the last few episodes of "About Time" - a Korean Drama. I cried from the scene when Mi Ka's mother realized why Mi Ka saved up money. Then after crying my heart out, I remembered that I have a full make-up on. I checked myself in the mirror and was amazed to see that my mascara remained intact despite me swiping away the tears. No smudging at all. 

My lashes looked natural with this mascara. The mascara lifted my lashes upward a little even without a curler. 

The wand is thin and twisted. It is easy to use and control when applying the mascara. It is small enough that I managed to successfully not poke my eyes. (I am not joking! LOL, sometimes when I use a bigger wands, I tend to poke my eye, specially when I am applying to my left eye that is harder to reach with my right hand.)

If you wanted a waterproof mascara that looks natural, you may want to give this variant a try. :)


Since it is waterproof, well, it is kind of hard to remove. LOL. 

For something designed to increase the volume of my lashes, it started to form clumps after two to three layers of application. 

Also, it said that it can create up to 9x of volume, for me, if I do not want to have my lashes clumped together, it can only increase up to two to three times the volume. (Photos below)
