I have the "newer" version in the black and orange tube. Yet another Maybelline mascara fail for me. Overall I have to use about 4 coats to get any length or volume....otherwise it doesn't really do anything for my lashes. It's quite waterproof so I will use it up since pool and beach season is almost here. Once used, however, I'll be looking for something else.

I have purchased about 3 tubes of this mascara and I love it. I use waterproof mascara because I like to hold curl in my lashes. This product comes off fine with a cleansing oil. The color is very pigmented and gives the lashes a very dramatic look. I used to use MUFE smoky lash but this is a good dupe for it. I love how full and long it makes lashes look.

My 3rd favorite Maybelline mascara (Rocket volume and Colosaal are my other 2)
Nice volume and fullness and no flaking. My only gripe is that tthisi one seems to try out fast otherwise its good!

After trying this out a few more times, I think this is one of the most buildable waterproof mascaras from Maybelline. I don't quite get this kind of layering volume with the newer waterproof mascaras. My thin lashes need a few coats to become visible. It takes patience, but I curl my lashes, and apply a few coats of this to get curled, thick, lashes. Simple and effective.

This mascara is a great mascara if you want natural looking lashes. Although if you want voluminous lashes then just keep building them up. I'd say 1-2 coats is natural and 4-5 coats makes them sky high.i wouldn't recommend this for lower lashes because the brush is thick so it's hard to use. It's a good mascara for school. I would definitely buy this product again.

I used to wear this mascara a few years ago (like 8) and I loved it, but since then, I have been experimenting with other maybelline mascaras as well as mascaras from other brands ranging from l'oreal, bourjois, lancome, makeup forever until higher end brands like dior and chanel. I guess all of the other brands have good mascaras too, my latest love being chanel inimitable waterproof, but they're a lot more expensive and often dries out too quickly. I have medium length, thin, flimsy lashes and I find that this mascara separates my lashes and lengthens them too, not just gives volume. It is also very very buildable and strangely I find that it thickens my lashes more when you apply the next coat after the previous coat is nearly dry. I can apply up to 5 coats without any clumping! Just thick, long, curly, voluminous lashes!

i guess this product is just so so..nothing special from this..
and because i'm still learning make up, then i need the product that make applying make-up feels easy and this mascara sometime screwed it !!
it does smudge, and not dry quickly so its often to stain on my under eye and it could make 'the darkeye circle' effect...

eyes. when i first used this i noticed the smell right off the bat it smells like rotten tomatoes and it is very liquidy. it is about 6$ at any
drugstore. the packaging is nice though comes in a shiny black tube with red lettering. WOULD DIFFIDENTLY NOT REPURCHASE!!!!!!!!

The only mascara I have ever used is Maybelline Great Lash, but I wanted to try a waterproof mascara and picked this up. I was SO disappointed. I have naturally thick, curled, LONG lashes and this mascara some how managed to ruin everything I had going for me. My eyelashes were hardly noticeable after I applied it - very thin looking, clumped together, the curl mysteriously gone, and my lashes looked stubby and short. (Also, I consider myself a master at applying mascara - I can usually manipulate any mascara to give my lashes or someone else's good volume and length but this mascara did NOT want to cooperate.) It was a very wet formula, which I didn't like, and the smell was really bad. My Great Lash has a smell to it, but nothing like this. Disgusting. Plus, this is impossible to remove. I scrubbed at it for 10 minutes with my Almay Oil-Free eye makeup remover and only got half of it off. And then it smeared black beneath my eye, which I couldn't get off either. There were still traces of it two days after I wore it. Don't waste your time, this isn't what you're looking for.

Great Mascara. Holds curl amazingly even all day even after swimming. Comes off easy with makeup remover.

Great value for money. It's truly waterproof as it claims. Doesn't cause my Chinese lashes to go limp even after curling. Plumps up my lashes adequately. Friendly on my wallet. Love it.

This is has been one of my favorite mascaras for years. I tried other products, ofter more expensive but not better and in the end I always repentantly came back to this one. It lenghtens my lashes and gives them just the right amount of volume without clumping.

My mother actually introduced me to this mascara, I had trouble with some mascaras flaking on me, but this mascara is LOVE. It lengthens my lashes and it doesn't make my lashes look like spider legs. It's decent lasting and the first time I ever tried this mascara was when I wore it to prom. I like how it makes my lashes look sort of dolly and it's waterproof. It removes so easily with my lancome eye makeup remover and that's a plus because I hate wearing eyeliner and mascara just for that reason. I love how the wand is so easy to use, and it doesn't make me get those spots on my lids or under my bottom lashes when I am applying mascara. I think for a mascara it's quite inexpensive and it works well for me and my mom. I am so thankful my mom introduced this mascara to me. :D Definitely so far my HG mascara!

I love this mascara! It lengthens and lifts and isn't heavy. The price is great and it also truly volumizes my lashes. It's my new favorite mascara!

MY NEW HG MASCARA! I waited some time to purchase this because I wasn't sure, but I'm so, so glad I did. This totally blows all the mascaras I've ever had out of the water. It volumizes, curls and lengthens my lashes, never makes them hard or "crispy", and doesn't budge once it's on. I can sweep coats after coats of it on without having to deal with any clumps. Doesn't smell terrible (MAC zoomfast I'm lookin at ya), doesn't disturb my sensitive eyes... this one is worth its weight in gold. I got it on 30% offer which makes it ever more worth the money. Love this, will repurchase when it's out, even at its regular price.
Don't hesitate if you are wondering whether to buy it! Def. recommend this.

This is one of those mascaras that I keep going back to even though I "try" to find something better. (still looking for my HG!)
I have short, stick straight lashes and all non-waterproof mascaras drop the curl immediately after I lash curl them.. so I have to stick with waterproof formulas. This gives me a little bit of length but gives me alot of volume. It gives my lashes some drama without being spidery and clumpy.
Negatives: the waterproof formula is very hard to take off so you have to use a good eye makeup remover (i.e.: neutrogena eye makeup remover, or Lumene waterproof makeup remover...if you want high end go for Lancome bi-facil)
I highly recommend this mascara for someone with my type of lashes.

All of the Maybelline Volum' Express incarnations have worked well for me, and this is no exception.
Color-I have 'Very Black' and the color is just that.
Application/Formula- The brush is of medium size, and bristles are of medium density. Easy application with the begin at the root and wiggle motion, the formula is a medium consistency. I apply two coats to get the look I want and I run a clean spoolie through to separate anything that has stuck together. My lashes are medium-long and tend to tangle, so that last step is necessary for me regardless of what product I use. I have no clumping issues with the product. The product smells like the non toxic acrylic paints used in kindergarden the world over. It's waterproof enough for my purposes. No migrating or smudging in 12+ hours of wear unless I rub my eyes like mad. Comes off easily with cold cream and a warm washcloth. I have had no issues with this drying out in the tube or getting goopy.
Effect- This gives my longish but not terribly thick lashes a boost of volume and thickness. The effect is medium to dramatic, depending on how long I fiddle with it. There's a picture up top, the lady with the green/hazel eyes and out of control eyebrows, that's me with two coats on.

I love this Mascara! It lengthens my lashes and volumises them too! Although it does smudge quite easily for a waterproof mascara. It really opens up my eyes and I'm constantly getting compliments about my eyelashes.

I used to love Cliniques High Impact Mascara but was looking for a cheaper alternative and boy did this mascara live up to its hype! I think I have quite 'normal' eyelashes that are of mid length and a little bit sparse looking without mascara but once I put this on it looks amazing. I really love that one or 2 coats is nice for a standard day look but if I curl my eyelashes and go for a heavier application I really can get amazingly thick and dramatic looking eyes that have even more drama than the Clinique High Impact. The only thing that stopped me frm giving this 5 lippies is the fact that it can clump a little bit (although to be honest that is after many many coats) and that it can be very difficult to remove at night even with a good eye makeup remover. All in all a really versatile and fantastic product for a great price..... will definately be keeping it as a makeup bag staple!

This mascara gives you thickening effect and pretty well hold the curls. I didn't see it was lengthening your lashes but it's ok for me because my lashes already long but pretty much straight. I would buy this stuff again if it's really waterproof, but in my oily lids plusI live in humid place, this mascara still smudges after several hours. I'm still looking for the best mascara out there
