Today it is time to review a Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara
Product Description: Maybelline introduced few wide varieties of Mascaras, out of which I have picked up this seeing the word ‘Volume’ and ‘Waterproof’. So, as all other variants, this has intense black color and Maybelline has succeeded making different types and categories of Mascaras with different type of wands etc.
Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara claims to build up volume instantly and provides curly fix which would stay in there for 18hours. This variant comes with a waterproof formula.
Price and Quantity: Rs 200 for 9.2 ml
One can easily get this at Rs.175 from online stores.
Affordable and a perfect steal for college going girlies!!
Shade: Very black
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY: It can be easily found over man beauty stores as well as online. Few online stores do offer 5-10% discount at times, but one got to checkout every now and then! I got this for Rs. 175 on discount.
SHELF LIFE: Nothing in specific mentioned but a Mascara must be maximum used only for 3months.
SUITABLE FOR:Any eye colour
PACKAGING: The packaging is pretty girly! The tube comes in a black colour with a silver cap to it. As said, the wand is curly and is pretty difficult to go to the corners of the eye such as tear duct etc for applying Mascara. Easy to apply for upper lashes.
Colour, consistency & Fragrance/ Texture: The shade comes in a colour named as ‘Very Black’, and the formula has a thick consistency which doesn’t become goopy or something till a good 3months, unlike other cheap drug store mascaras. And fragrance is something weird just like every other mascara. Anyways the smell doesn’t linger for more than a second or so. So, no worries!
MY EXPERIENCE WITH Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara: Best thing I would always love to pamper or show off are my eyes. Love them! So, obviously anything related would be my pick. So, I was in search for Mascara, which has a waterproof formula. So, I have shortlisted few brands after which I have come down to Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara
Reasons for choosing: As it was quite affordable, and claims to be providing curly finish.
So, my go with the product seems to be well but not upto the mark. I was quite disappointed with the wand as it is pretty difficult to go to the corners of the eye such as tear duct etc for applying Mascara. It might at times even get messy while applying over the lower lashes. But undoubtedly this does give one a curl fix and lengthens the eye lashes instantly when applied. And the curly and lengthening effect does last for a good 8-9hours. It does stands to its claim as ‘Waterproof’. One would need a Makeup remover to remove the entire residue! And the curly effect does appear even after washing the eyes with bare water. So thumbs up for this! But when one loves to build up the coats and try to apply 2-3 coats, I have observed that it forms clumps which are not a good thing for Mascara. So, I would say that one coat would definitely suffice as it gives you a curly, lengthening, intense black effect which is pretty good. But if you want to have a eye makeup and then have lots of Mascara on your lashes for that lovely finish, then this wouldn’t be an apt choice.
Nevertheless, for the price, Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara is a pretty good pick to go!
– The formula stay the same for around 3-4months without becoming goopy
– Intense black colour
– Provides the curling and lengthening effect as claims
– The effect last for a good 8-9 hours
– Water resistant
– Gives a lovely glossy curling finish when one coat is applied
– Travel friendly
– Clumps are formed when applying 2-3 coats
– Inflexible wand that is difficult to move around the lower lashes and also to use around the corners of the eye.
URG Rating: 3/5. A perfect choice for college girls as this is within budget
Do I recommend this Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara? Yes, this is decent Mascara which provides instant lift, curling and lengthening effect to the lashes and is within the budget.
Would I repurchase Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara: No! Would like to try others.
