Argh, my Maybelline mascara fails for a second time! After One by One, I expected this would be straightforward and volumizing, a little drama for a night out. Alas, the brush is so clumsy, too long and too bristly. I like big brushes for volume, but the bristles were too small and even. I basically found it hard to apply and ended up smearing it on my lids every time, which grew old quick. I swapped the wand and then I realized I didn't even like the formula. It is clumpy and uninspired. Fail.
This mascara clumps on me. The formula is mediocre at best. I have both the colossal * great for volume and thickening) and falsies (purple tube-perfect for lengthening, day wear mascara) and these two fare WAY better than Turbo Boost. When in doubt, stay the hell away from Turbo Boost.
Why do I even try another mascara other than my CG Lash Blast?? I bought Maybelline's Volum' Express Turbo Boost Mascara and was disappointed. Seems like it's Great Lash formula in a different package and brush. Smudges on the upper portion of my eyelids. Doesn't clumb, but it doesn't add fullness either. If you curl your lashes expect this extra wet formula to take the curl right out. Will not buy again.
I really wanted to like this but unfortunately it was not for me. It did a decent job but I love think, luscious sky-scraper lashes and the Turbo didn't deliver for me. Try Colossal by Maybelline instead- love that stuff!
this was only my 2nd mascara (after the Falsies), and it was the first one that didn't clump on me, so back then i thought it was the best mascara in the world. it did a decent job in length and a bit of volume, BUT it held no curl at all. in a couple seconds my lashes were straight again.
i wouldn't recommend this mascara because it doesn't hold a curl, which is pointless.. maybelline has better mascaras like Lash Stiletto and Full 'n' Soft.
amazing my go to mascara, cheap and does the job!!!!
I have used this mascara for YEARS. Every now and then I will try something new, but will ALWAYS come back to this... Nothing else is as black or creates as bold lashes. Yes, it does clump a little but definately not enough for my opinion to change. Great price too!
I have this in the old packaging (not the red+black). Very Black #251 is indeed a very dark black. Gives more volume than length. It is great for an everyday look w/ that extra kick of piazza but certinally not nearly on the same level for drama as Maybelline's Volum' Express The Colossal.
As I've stated in my other mascara reviews, I have very long, full, curled lashes. I'm always on the hunt for the blackest mascara that provides the most drama, so when I came across a "buy 2, get 1 free" deal on Maybelline, I snapped this up. At first I wasn't impressed, but upon building it for a bit, my lashes really did look amazing - even darker, fuller, and longer than normal (and my lashes touch my brow bone when my eyes are open without any mascara!). It never flaked on me, and still looked great at the end of a workday. A good staple mascara to own.
I had expectations from this product. I was disappointed in the brush (a big brush that leaves clumps behind and doesn't grab all the lashes). I've tried using this mascara with another brush, it's a little bit better but not great. I will not repurchase.
