I've never found a Maybelline mascara that has really impressed me, though once again I was compelled to try Mega Plush. It's not awful, but it's nothing special and definitely not worth the price. The flexible wand makes application really difficult, and I found it didn't give my lashes a decent curl because it's not strong enough to push against them. I had to use a lot of it to get any decent length or volume and it dries quickly creating spider lashes. The packaging is a little tacky and you don't get enough of it so I have to pump it 2 or 3 times which I usually avoid doing because it dries out. It was on the higher price end for Maybelline mascaras though I feel I could get the same result from a product a third of the price. I definitely won't be repurchasing and have been disappointed by their mascara once again.

This is such an amazing mascara, the best you can get from a drugstore!
I've wanted this from about November 2012, when some of my American beauty gurus on Youtube raved about it. It only got released in the UK in about May 2013 and I ran to get it. This product has not let me down. The bendable wand makes application very quick and easy to get right from the bottom to the tip of your lashes. Does a great job of seperating your lashes and doesn't clump at all.
Really recommend this product!

After years of testing different mascaras, I have finally found one that makes me warm and fuzzy! This mascara lifts & separates your lashes all day and makes them thicker looking as well. I absolutely adore this product and think it's one of the one mascaras that lives up to its name.

Worst mascara I've ever used. First off, I hate the bendable wand. When you try to coat your lashes, it just bends and it takes a lot of effort to get the product onto your lashes. After using this, my lashes looked horrible. There was no volume whatsoever, I had more volume before using then after. It looked so bad I didn't want to wear it out. Will never buy again.

I have long, dark, curly lashes, but I do use mascara just to give my lashes a little extra length and colour. I've used the Clinique High Impact(or whatever) for a long time but it tended to clump and make my lashes stiff(plus it's expensive. Usually I got it free when my mom bought her skin care but that's not a very reliable method of purchase). I want my lashes soft, as if I've not even used mascara. Apparently, that's what this is supposed to do.
Lies. This still made my lashes hard, and it clumped a lot, which I detest. The brush was too big IMO, and that paired with the bendy wand made it impossible to actually work and comb this into my lashes, which usually prevents clumps.
Not great staying power either. I went out for about 3 hours with it on doing some shopping and I ended up with ugly grey circles beneath my eyes.
Would not recommend or repurchase. Hopefully I can find my HG drugstore mascara in some other brand.

I like this mascara, but it's not one of my favorites from the Maybelline Volum-Express line. I really enjoyed its natural look it gave me because that's perfect for everyday. The formula is a bit weird for me, though. I don't really like how wet it felt on my lashes! It didn't really give me enough length or volume that I desired so I wouldn't repurchase this mascara again.

I'm inlove with this mascara! I've been using it for months now, an it has never let me down. I've always loved Maybelline's mascaras but I've always came across the problem of after only a month or so, the formula becomes very thick and my eyelashes begin to clump together and it's absolutely horrible! But maybe because of the gel formula in this mascara or possibly the brush, I've never had that problem. I don't use waterproof because ALL waterproof mascaras I have used in the past would flake and be impossible to get off and just be a mess. But with this mascara, it stays all day perfectly I don't even have to buy the waterproof! And I find that it comes right off with a little soap and water, no hassle. But my favorite thing about this mascara is how great it makes my lashes look! My lashes look long, fluttery and flirty. I wear this stuff practically everyday and people are always asking if my eyelashes are real or if I'm wearing false lashes at work and school! I definitely would recommend this mascara!

i've finally found the mascara of my dreams! i have tried nearly every maybelline mascara and many others brands and this one is the absolute best. not only does it give my thick, luscious lashes, they don't get that awful crispy feeling or flake. it wears well and is easy to remove with a make up wipe. for the price and results i'd recommend this and i will definitely be re-purchasing!

My favorite mascara is Full & Soft, mainly because it is easy to remove, doesn't look fake, and doesn't make my lashes stiff.

This one is hard to remove and makes my lashes stiff, but yes, it looks good and feathery...at first. I have only had success layering this over the full and soft or volume express, and I have also had trouble with it gathering in soot under my eyes, then going to the bathroom and scaring myself in the mirror. I don't have time for those types of touch ups, and although I will wear Urban Decay shadow primer on days I teach or have important things going on, I don't want to have to wear it just because I am wearing this mascara.

I mainly bought it because the Christy Turlington ads were irresistible and I am always attracted to a big brush.

The waterproof version might be OK, but I will need to read reviews first to make sure it doesn't flake.
