Mascara is probably one of my most re-purchased beauty product. This is because I use it every single day, I mean who doesn’t want to try their best to have voluminous Bambi style lashes 24/7?
It feels like high-street beauty brands release a new mascara every couple of months. But despite the barrage of marketing campaigns with women who have ridiculously perfect defined yet full lashes, I always seem to gravitate back towards Maybelline mascaras.
Since the start of the year, I have gotten into this weird habit of collecting my rubbish. Okay, not ALL my rubbish, but every time I finish a skincare or makeup product I’ve been putting it in a shoebox under my bed. This has just been to keep track of how quickly I finish something and to make myself more aware of my spending habits… because not going to lie, I could probably spend half my paycheque on beauty products (I don’t need) every month.
When opening the box I realised that I had finished three Maybelline mascara’s in succession so I decided to write a quick review of them, enjoy!
Maybelline Volum’ Express Rocket Mascara
Pros: This mascara gives both volume and length with zero clumping due to the rubberised brush.
Cons: The only issue with this mascara is that when you first open it the formula is very wet making it harder get beautifully defined lashes. However, after a week or so the formula has dried down a bit and is a lot easier to work with!
Verdict: Best for Definition and Length
Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara
Pros: This mascara is amazing for big fat lashes. The bristle brush is slim enough for easy application but dense enough to give amazing volume.
Cons: Be careful when applying a second coat as the formula does tend to clump a little if you use too much product.
Verdict: Best for Volume
Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara
Pros: This mascara has a bigger bristle brush than the Big Shot but seems to give more definition and volume with slightly less clumping.
Cons: For some reason, this mascara seemed to dry out waaaay quicker than the other two.
Verdict: Best for Volume, Definition, and Length
