This mascara looks really cute with pink tiger stripes on the cap of the tube! I was really looking forward to trying it out, especially with the comb applicator wand and that it's supposed to give out a cat-eye effect!
However, it clumps like free!! My lashes looked like they have blobs on them :( As the color payoff is pretty awesome, it made the clumping even more visible! I think it's the comb not being able to separate those lashes properly.
But the commendable part would be it's color payoff and lasting power! I tried this out on my lower lashes and it worked really well (probably due to lashes being pretty sparse and thin over there) and lasted the whole day for a good 10 over hours. It defines and thickens the lashes! I think it's the comb applicator.
Sadly, I would not repurchase this, unless they change the applicator to a brush kinda.
Worst mascara I've ever had.
It only comes in waterproof, and I'm generally not a fan of water proof.
The little brush thing basically groups your lashes together in an unnatural looking way, usually clumpy and really hard to remove.
It took me half an hour to get it off using make up remover! And you can't really separate the clumps either, lash brush or not.
Don't buy it. Waste of money and time.
IMO, this is the best drugstore mascara I've ever used. I'm on my 4th tube, so this prooves that I loooove this product so much. It doesn't run nor clump. It stays on until you take it off with an eye make-up remover. Actually this is the only bad thing I can say about it. It is quite hard to be removed. Although it is very easy to put on too much, especially if yours is new. I find that when it dried a bit it works best for me.
I have a long but not curly lashes, so I still need to curl mine first before I put the mascara on.
The price is cheap. I bought mine from Carrefour (@ Jakarta) for IDR 80.000. But then Carrefour often have promotions for make-up products, so I bought another one for IDR 50.000 last week just because they are on sale.
Hope that helps!
This mascara smudges like a b*tch! HATE IT SO MUCH!!! I thought the comb applicator would make it easy to use but it looked so bad. My lashes had thick clumps of mascara on the roots. And the clumps flaked and smudged on me in less than three hours.
My lids are oily but the Maybelline volum express always works on me.
I bought this mascara in the hello kitty limited edition version. <3 the packaging. its comb applicator makes it easy for tiny lashes to be coated (esp the bottom ones) builds volume instantly without much hassle. the only problem i have with this is that its hard to remove! even with a waterproof make-up remover
I went through the reviews and was quite surprised to find that some complained this mascara was lacking in the volume department. I beg to differ. I thought this mascara afforded great volume for my long and thin lashes. It made them so much thicker and blacker, especially with the comb applicator which reaches even the tiniest, shortest lashes. Great for coating the bottom lashes, except that it is not as waterproof as it claims.
My lashes are also EXTREMELY stubborn and point downwards, but this mascara helps in curling SOME of them. For those with lashes that are easy to curl, this mascara should be able to maintain the curl throughout the whole day.
Overall, however, I would not recommend this product, other for the fact that it has a comb applicator (i love mascaras with comb applicators!). I have oily skin and oily eyelids, so when I use the mascara on both my upper and bottom lashes, I find that there is very serious smudging at the bottom of my eyes after a few hours. By serious smudging, I mean smudging that will make people look at you very strangely and wondering what's wrong with your eyes. Very, very embarrassing, let me tell you. My lashes feel rather heavy after applying the mascara as well, which makes me feel uncomfortable. I also found that I have some slight difficulty in blinking my eyes as my mascara coated lashes seem to stick to my lower eyelid.
But for those who have less oily lids, are not prone to the smudging of mascara and want volume, this mascara may suit them just fine.
I was first attracted to the packaing of this mascara, with cat stripe prints all over the tube. However, I was hesitant to pick this up as I prefer darker masacras and I remember Maybelline's black mascaras are not as "black" as most of the counter brand mascaras I use. After watching one of my favourite Taiwanese variety shows where the make up artist used this mascara to an impressive effect, I finally decided to give it a try. This mascara has a double comb and I am able to coat my lashes with the mascara quite easily. However, the black is not really the intense kind of black so it requires a lot of layering if I were to achieve the kind of look I want. When I applied the third layer, i started to see clumps and needed to use a lash comb to comb them out. There was also a bit of a "spider legs" effect by the third layer. It must be my technique or something, but I guess I can find better mascaras out there and this just does not work for me!

This mascara is somehow thick. When use for the first 2 months (I use it every day), serious grouping of lashes (due to bad brush). Also, weighed down my lashes esp the end of my lashes. Fibre extends length of my lashes but it is so heavy that it does not look natural. End up I look like having some really thick lashes (groups of 3-4 lashes). Can't help even with lashes comb. Towards the 3rd month, the tube gets drier and actually it's easier to apply and less grouping. But I have to throw that away by end of 3rd month/4th month as it gets so dry that doesn't look good anymore and for personal hygene reason.
This mascara is great, it gives great effects to my lashes, it's waterproof, easy to remove and the wand brush is definitely a plus. Sadly, sometimes during the day when I rub my eyes, the product somehow gets to my eyes and it stings like hell! That's the only con for me. I will not buy this again as I've never repurchase the same mascara twice before. But if you don't have sensitive eyes, this would be perfect for you cos it's dirt cheap (and that's always a good thing, right?) :)
Quoting of my friend "OMG I can't believe how fake this (make the lashes) look!" I bought this quite some time back and honestly one of the reasons I bought it for was for the packaging. I mean how cute! Black with pink and the stripes! Also it claims it curls the lashes and back then I was all into making my lashes curl like no forever. Okay, this really lengthen the lashes and add a little volume, and it does hold curls.However it clumps! Not like clumps like crazy but it clumps if I do not apply it 'properly' eg when I apply it in a rush, and this left me so frustrated cos' I ended up spending more time trying to make my lashes look 'okay' by either combing through the lashes or removing some mascara with my fingers and end up plucking out my own lashes. ):
Once I looked at my friend's lashes (she has amazingly lashes that curls like awesome naturally), and I asked if she put mascara one time we were out, and she said yes. So wondering how hers doesn't clump and look natural, I knew it was my mascara. (Okay I used to think all mascara looked unnatural on the lashes no matter what.) So after that I tried applying this mascara in a different way, like at a certain angle, and if I apply at a 'right angle' it doesn't clump as much as it used to, (though it still doesn't look natural). I probably will not buy again, and will be looking for a better mascara to try because at SGD$17.90, I think there are much better mascaras out there. (:
Some people mentioned that it is hard to remove, yes it is, but recently I've been using baby oil to remove my eye make-up and it removes the mascara quite easily! (:
