To help celebrate the recent Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012, Maybelline released a special mascara available only during the month of May! Introducing Volum’ Express One by One Mascara in Satin Black provided kindly by Maybelline.
If I had to think of a Maybelline mascara that matched this, I would think the amazing Falsies, only with a more oval shaped wand, as well as having plastic bristles instead. It’s definitely in the volumising family, as you can see below one coat is enough. Usually I need to apply two coats of mascara to get that sort of impact. Two coats of this mascara can prove to be too clumpy.
It reminds me a little of Lancome’s Hypnose mascara, which as you may know is my HG mascara. The only downside I’ve experienced with this mascara is that it can leave a bit of smudging on my lower lash line. I didn’t experience it all the time however which is strange, usually just when I’m very tired which perhaps could be due to teary eyes.
So if you’re in the market for a new mascara, being limited edition at $19.25AU I’d be inclined to give it a go as I doubt most people would find this disappointing. The results are pretty awesome
