Nobody likes a show-off. But if you have Instagram-worthy lashes, then by all means, show off your eyelashes!
The Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara has an insta volume-building express formula that quickly thickens eyelashes. It also comes with a patented curved anti-clump brush that separates eyelashes upon application. Its ultra waterproof formula ensures long-lasting wear, for at least 18 hours. As for its curl factor, it comes with a curly-fix formula that fixes and curls lashes instantly.
I took a chance with the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in Very Black when I had to attend a wedding in Tagaytay recently. I forgot to bring my holy-grail Benefit “They’re Real!” Lengthening Mascara to the south. So, I hightailed it to the nearest supermarket and scoured the aisles for an affordable, quick fix!
The Maybelline Mascara’s pretty and shiny packaging caught my eye, and when I saw its price—at P199 a pop—I didn’t hesitate to run to the checkout counter. I know, I know. I should have used my iPhone to read the online reviews first. But the LTE signal in Tagaytay was spotty that day, and I was in a rush.
So, was my leap of faith worth it? Yes and no. Yes, because its waterproof formula worked like a charm. This also gave me peace of mind as a contact lens wearer and sentimental wedding guest (read: tears). No, because its curved applicator poked my eye. Ouch!
Yes, because I didn’t have to use my Shu Uemura eyelash curler before application; it curled my lashes to my liking. Yes, because it added a decent amount of volume and length to my eyelashes with one coat. No, because when I wanted to add a second coat for D-R-A-M-A, it didn’t my eyelashes any extra oomph, just black clumps. Yes, because it didn’t smudge under the hot sun of my friend’s gorgeous garden wedding or run when it started to drizzle during the dinner reception.
This Maybelline mascara may not replace my HG mascara anytime soon, but for only P199, it did its job when I was in a bind. Its accessibility is also an added bonus. It’s available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores, even branches outside Metro Manila.
