Review: Maybelline Volume Express Mascara (Smokey Eyes effect)



Hello,

Just a quick post on how I am finding the Maybelline Volume Express Colossal (Smokey Eye effect) mascara. That's just a mouthful isn't it?! 

So this was one of my recent buys and I absolutely love it. But then again, Maybelline mascara has always been one of the best out there, in relation to price, right?

The mascara does what it says, it thickens my lashes but also lengthens it a bit. I am particularly obsessed with the "black-ness" of the mascara. No mascara could get darker than this! Makes me get the smokey eye effect claim. I really need to get my hands on a good eyelash curler, to help me curl and lengthen my lashes more.

Here is a before and after pic:

I find that one coat is sufficient for me and when I have the time and want to go the extra mile, I add an extra coat, though this second coat doesn't really make a big difference to me.

Price: I got this for N1500 or about $10. 
Longevity: It's waterproof and does not smudge at all.

I have NO complaints about this mascara whatsoever and I am not surprised at this cos, well, it's Maybelline after all! Lol.


What other awesome mascaras have you tried?
