I already use and love Maybelline mascaras, especially the Volum' Express line so anytime they come out with a new version, I HAVE to try it. This one is up there with Colossal as a favorite. It truly does only take one quick coat which I guess explains teh name. Use two if you want to really amp it up. I use the wp version but there is no listing for that specifically yet. (I have to say that IMHO, that third pic makes this look really clumpy but in reality, it's not. It is a wetter formula, but that doesnt' deter me because I think these are at their prime abotu a week or so after you open them, as I find happens with most if not all Maybelline mascaras.)


This seems to be their version of the CG LashBlast tube and wand style, the huge fat type. Takes some getting used to if you haven't used one like it already, otherwise it's just as good if not better than CGLB and definitely on par with the other Volum Express mascaras if not better, because I use a lot less of this to get the same effect it would take with another masraca using two or three coats so I'm sold and will repurchase. No clumps, no smudges or smearing, no flaking, nice definition and separation and great volume. I use wp becasue it holds amazing curl all day so I can't speak to the non-wp version that way, but even with the wp version I can touch my lashes and they still move, despite that they look like they won't. Love the blue tube because I can always find it in my black hole of a train case, too :) Good stuff & worth a try whether you're on the fence or already a long-time Maybelline mascara fan like me. A welcome addition to the family!
