I love me some Maybelline cosmetics. I cannot even recall how long it has been since I have been using their products. Personally, I love that they have such a wide range of cosmetics that are so budget-friendly and at the same time, assures excellent quality. I recently purchased their “The Hyper Curl Mascara” in very black which is waterproof. Read below Maybelline Hypercurl Volum Express Mascara Review – Waterproof Very Black to find out my thoughts about it!
- For Women/Men? : Women
- Shelf Life : 3 years
- Color : Black
- Fragrance : Like a permanent marker but milder
Comes in a cylindrical tube with a black body (the name of the product is written in rose gold and black) and a rose gold lid. The applicator is attached to the lid which can be easily twisted when you want to apply.
How to apply
Twist the cap, dip the brush into the mascara, wipe the excess off, and apply it on your lashes in an upwards direction from your roots to the tips. Apply as many coats as you feel like. You can use an eyelash curler before the mascara if you want a nice, dramatic curling effect.
To be very honest, I have never really worn a lot of mascara and that is because I hardly have any eyelashes and I don’t mind wearing only an eye-liner. I wasn’t very interested in getting false lashes or researching about what I could do to get more lashes naturally either. And I got extremely lazy to look for products that would help me to achieve a fuller look because the first two times I got mascaras; they didn’t work for me. But just for the heck of it; after almost 3 years of wearing no mascara, I decided to invest in one and I came across this. It was inexpensive and got good reviews, so I went “why not?”
I have used this at least 7 times since I have purchased this and it works amazing! It is waterproof as it claims, stays on for 8-9 hours without any smudging or smearing, and provides a lifted, longer, fuller look. I always use an eyelash curler before I apply the mascara to get the curling effect.
It doesn’t sting or irritate my eyes and its user-friendly applicator helps me achieve the definition that I like. It works great on me on days when I don’t want to put on an eye-liner and my eyes look good regardless.
Best time to apply
Whenever you want dramatic eyes!
- Value for money
- Easy to apply
- Great texture
- Not heavy
- Dries up very fast so eyelashes can get clumped. Coats have to be applied quickly.
- Being waterproof is also a con. It is quite difficult to remove. Use baby oil, baby wipes, or a makeup remover to wipe the mascara off and if not done gently, eyelashes could come off.
- For all my fellow women who have less to almost none lashes like me and for women who have naturally gorgeous lashes who just want an enhanced look, I would highly recommend this mascara! Ladies, this is a must-have in your kitty!
