Assalamualaikum and hello. Are you a fan of mascara? Well, actually I am not a big fan of it, mostly I would only gravitate towards mascara if I'm going for a bold, dramatic makeup look. I must say that I was born with a sad looking lashes, they are droopy and short (typical Asian lashes). That's why most of the time I prefer to emphasize on my big eyes by lining out bold eye liner. I know there are a lot of people out there who loves mascara, who swears by mascara and would never leave the house without it. Anyway, I still do use mascara, when I'm extra 'rajin' and want to have a bolder look. Okay so today I want to share my review on the new, improved Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara (Waterproof). They have an older version but I have never tried it before.
The all new and improved Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara (Waterproof). is promised to give 4 times the curl, 13 times the volume and staying power of 100 degrees for 24 hours. Furthermore it is sweat proof, water proof and smudge proof. A tube of this mascara is retailed at RM31.65 and is available at major pharmacies in Malaysia.
The curve bristles is designed to catch the lashes from the bottom and volumize it while curling it at the same time. And since it promotes curling and volumizing, you don't have to curl your lashes before hand. I always do the zig zag motion from bottom to the tip of my lashes. I would also go over the top side of the lashes and do the same thing as the bottom side. I find the texture is a bit wet but it is still easy to apply. I will coat my right eye lashes first, let it dry up a bit then continue to my left eye. I repeat the same process for a second coat. I find the mascara really gives a much needed volume to my lashes and it does curled up my lashes to a better length. First coat is not clumpy at all, it looks very natural. The second coat has the tendency to be clumpy but it's not bad. I can really see how much the mascara helps to give more volume to my lashes.
I actually really like the result of the 2 coats of Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara (Waterproof) as my lashes look curled up and volumize! I was happy with the result! But, I always have a problem with mascara smudging on me, and this mascara did that too due to my oily eyelids. :( It smudges about after 4 hours, especially if I am out all day with this crazy hot weather in Malaysia. But its not that bad compared to other mascara I have tried. It is waterproof in the terms that I actually splashed my face with water and the mascara stayed on well. As for the longevity of the curl, it lasted about 80 to 90 percent within 6 hours. Obviously I would never have my make up on for 24 hours. As a conclusion, I would definitely use this mascara because of the volume and the lovely curl it gives to my lashes but I just have to be extra careful with the smudginess because I don't want to look like a panda (even though they are so cute) *hahaha*
