Beauty Sharing: Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara Review

Ola Aloha Mahalo!

Well today, yours truly will do a beauty tips post especially for my sweeties out there. Everyone close to me would guess that if I was stranded on an island and granted one vanity wish, I would opt to have a mascara at hand. Haha. Also, I love coating my lashes with many many many layers of the eyelash enhancer and I would try to get every single lash on my eyelid. Haha. I'm a bit OCD in that sense.
Above: Be ready. I'm gonna ramble on about this mascara.

Basically, I "mistakenly" bought this Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes Mascara in Black (RM 34). I was a regular for Maybelline Magnum Mascara, but since I speculated that the Magnum was causing some eye irritation (hence the red veins in my eyeball: you'll notice later), I wanted to switch to something different. I grabbed the Volum' Express (VE) and was very disappointed by the shape of the wand. I wanted a full-on big fat brush, but this pathetic wand looks like a small little comb! It looks like it is meant for lower lashes or itsy bitsy baby lashes. Little did I know that I was about to be proved terribly wrong!*buzzer sound*

After trying it, I have to say that it is such a wonderful and inexpensive mascara that provides definition, separation and elongation of lashes with MINIMAL CLUMPING, compared to Magnum which is my (previous) favorite. Now I have to say I am in LOVE with VE!

Now let the pictures do the talking...

Before: Without VE. BTW if you wear colored contacts Please Please Please use some mascara. You'd look ill otherwise. *my pet peeves*





After: VIOLA! Can you see how well-separated the lashes are? I guess the secret was in the wand shape, which combed my eyelash separately while coating them evenly.

Above: Aerial view of moi eyes. LEFT with VE, RIGHT without VE.

Above:With flash, so you can have a sharper look at these lashies. And my seemingly crossed eyes.

Above: Done! Now I am ready to go buy some fruits! (Haha pakai mascara tebal2 pegi beli buah kat Taipan). Anyway ignore my hair I will chop them off soon.

By the way, you'll notice that people will complement your lashes and give second glances to figure out if you're actually wearing falsies or not. I'm loving it and fully recommend that you give this a shot once your mascara is expired.

Anyway more pics:

Above: the fruits for freezing, ingredients for my smoothies; flowers I bought that really elevated my mood; clothes I shopped for because I was in dire need for some retail therapy. Haha. Anyway this place in Taipan has a fashion expert to mix and match stuff for you! The clothes are between RM10-50.

Health Note:

Food intake: 1 shake only, Lunch Salmon Salad and the BreadButterPudding. Dinner: 8 course meal @ Work (demmit)
Exercise: None, unless we count the waking hours.

Today: 2 shakes, Lunch leftover Marinara and yogurt+muesli
Exercise: None, it was raining the moment I wore my running shoes. :((

Okay I shall end this post abruptly since I have so much work work work to do. I'm excited for tomorrow's Xmas dinner. I want to be a Santa Baby. Anyway I hope girls out there can benefit from this post. Let me know if you gave VE a try or if you have a favorite to share.

Toodly toodleloo peeps. Have a sweet dream!

*i have been forced by ferrarossa (bkn nama sebenar) to write a comment here*

Nanti aku suoh bff hg pakai mascara ni gak. I noticed dat the mascara provides definition, separation and elongation of lashes with minimal clumping. eh apsal ayat mcm sama?


Jannah said...

Hey babe, I've never tried that mascara. Will do when I'm running out of mine. The mascara that I'm currently in love with is L'Oreal Double Extension. It's like putting on fake eyelashes without putting on one.

Anonymous said...

ffffffuuyoooo eyelashhh!! vavvavaavuuumm.! hahaha. so tempted! i shall try one day. but wait, have you tried d one from maybelline, its black in colour, and can vibrate (got battery init) . so cool. its good tooo.

shaaa said...

hahahaa. the comment above is from shaaa okkk. i am no anonymous no nooo. lol

wow! ur eyelash cm merak kayangan! magic... mcm u pki fake eyelashes gitu..nk beli gak...! tq 4 sharing da info ferraROSka...

hmm...does Kumi know about this blog of yours? she would love to read your posts I am sure haha.

ferrarossa said...

kakak: Hey your lashes are as long as mine! We have similar DNA what?? Try it kak and if you're as OCD as me at putting mascara, you'll get the same result!

jannah: Hey gal, that Loreal Double Extension is also a good mascara, I'd presume. I don't know why but I never fancy those fiber+mascara type of mascara. When I take picture with flash, it kinda turns grayish. Do you experience this?

Shah: Wey ciplak ayat aku mana bleh! Plagiarism weh.. ang sohla bff aku pakai sat, kadang dia bukan pakai pon wlopon pakai kontek kaler2... pasni aku kena buat tutorial hantu kening khas untuk bff aku.

Tasha: Hey dear, the vibrating mascara sounds fun! I shall try it one day when I am done with this one. Anyway I truly appreciate your commenting here although your last comment was lost! Huhu can't wait to doll up when you're here!

Gapogak: Nak beli ka yang? Mata ampa terus mcm bidadari kot dahla bulu mata lebat ala2 arab kan.. very very aluring ya please!

H20: Oh ya I don't really publicize this blog so much but I shall say hello to her in the blogosphere so she'd read this! (not like she needs this mascara as her lashes are already so long!)
