The Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline review

Mascaras are an obsession of mine. Lashes can make or break a makeup look. Sometimes all you need is to naturally enhance them and sometimes a dramatic, thick, false effect does the magic. Choosing the right mascara is often the key to tying the look together. With all that said you may have guessed that I've tried many different products on the market. Actually as soon as a new, exciting launch hits the drugstores I'm first in line.

The Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline has been on the US market for a while now and I've read many reviews on it, both extremely positive and negative, so when I saw it in Boots and Superdrug I couldn't wait to have my take on it. I tell you now it is one of those hit or miss products that you either fall in love with or end up in the garbage. 

Basics:
  • £7.99 (You can now buy it in Boots for £5.99 or in Superdrug as a part of the 2 for 3 offer / US readers can buy it at Target, Ulta or Walgreens)
  • 9.6 ml
  • Ophthalmologically tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. 
  • Made in Italy

Personally I really like it for those days when I am going for a very natural, barely there makeup, as it enhances the lashes without being overwhelming. The first coat is almost unnoticeable, it just divides the lashes and defines them lightly. Thanks to the gel-mousse formula Maybelline are introducing for the first time, the second and third coat add volume and a little bit of length without leaving the lashes hard and brittle.

The so called Shock-absorber, flexor brush makes application a pleasure. It's so gentle that it literally caresses the lashes rather than combing trough them, which adds to the natural, soft effect.


The mascara doesn't clump or smudge on me, which taking in consideration the British weather is quite impressive. 

Overall I am very happy with The Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline and ...

If you're a fan of the natural look you'd love it!
