Review: Maybelline Hypercurl Volum' Express Mascara

Right now I've just finished Jigoku Shoujo Season 1 and I am now watching another anime- Sankarea. Its an anime about a guy who had a resurrected zombie girl as her girlfriend. Weird, eh? Well really, I am trying so hard to keep life less complicated and less serious so I watch more anime than usual. Its like my therapy to get myself out of the reality.

Anyhow since its Friday I finally get to wear something less formal, its wash day. Who else loves wash day? Since I felt I have more time today to put on makeup I used mascara. Eyes might be the windows to ones soul but I don't have a lot of time during the mornings to primp and prettify. Might as well go out bare face but I don't have the beaming confidence yet. So that is my hint, the review for today will be for Maybelline Hypercurl Volum' Express Mascara.

Maybelline Hypercurl Volum' Express Mascara Review

What is it? 
Hyper-volumized, hyper-curled lashes…
• Exclusive Curl-lock formula contains sealing wax to make and keep a fully volumized curl from root to tip
• Locks curls for up to 18 hours
• Contact lens safe, ophthalmologist-tested 

• Waterproof

Basically this mascara is P199 but the price lowered down to P149! Maybelline is popular for their very nice mascaras. They can't go wrong even for low-priced variants, can they?

L-O-V-E. The black and pink metallic color stands out- a lot. The color combination is feminine yet strong.

I don't usually put mascara unless its a special occasion or I feel like I have all the time in the world like this morning. First I curled my lashes and applied one layer with zigzag motion to make sure that my lashes is evenly coated. I add another layer to add more volume and length.

What I noticed is that unlike my old mascaras, Maybelline stays the whole day without product fall out. It even feels light like its not there. It also didn't smudge despite the humid weather and sweat from my daily commute. I even used this on my lower lashes and surprise surprise, I didn't looked like a panda at the end of the day. Its waterproof as well which means you will need to use makeup remover to get it off.

No filter picture below, comparison of with and without mascara. My lashes is naturally short, and yeah I had a breakout prior to this, well pimples hello.
Yes that is my eyes right there, RIGHT SIDE: upper and lower lashes curled and applied mascara about 2 coats LEFT SIDE: curled lashes without mascara 

How much and where to buy? 
Its on sale at only P149 for a tube (its originally P199). A mascara can only last 3 months after opening, I suggest to not splurge on mascara and besides there is no reason to because Maybelline Hypercurl Volum' Express Mascara is cheap!

What I love 

  • Very affordable!
  • Feels light like its not there
  • Last throughout the day
  • Classy packaging
  • No product fall out
  • Doesn't clump lashes
  • Not watery not dry formula
  • It coats lashes well
  • Volumized lashes
  • Very black product
  • Didn't irritated my eyes.
  • Readily available in the malls
  • Lengthens eyelashes.
  • Waterproof.
  • Sweat-proof/ can withstand humidity
  • The curved wand and short bristles!
  • Doesn't weigh down lashes
  • Total value for the price

What I don't 

  • Nothing I can mention

2-3 layers of mascara is the key to fuller lashes, just let it dry in between application to avoid clumping

Will I repurchase? 

Maybelline Hypercurl Volum' Express Mascara is the bomb! I hope they don't discontinue this product as it simply does it job for the right price tag. Love Maybelline!~
