This mascara dried out too quickly. The brush is HUGE, but the delivery of product does not match it. I did notice my lashes seemed stronger. They did not grow longer or thicker, but they seemed well nourished. So, before it dried out, I would layer another mascara on top of it because even when it is bran-new it is still pretty dry.
This was one of my very first mascaras. It separates well and builds nicely. The wand is rubbery and not too big, so it's not too crazy.
I don't know why they call this the #1 mascara. Compared to all of the great mascaras out there, this one is not good. It's sticky, clumps up lashes, and doesn't really do much. Even if you're just getting stated, Maybeline has way better mascaras than this one. [Full n' Soft, Colossal, Falsies, One by One, Lash Exactt].
I love these brushes! They are so soft and versatile. And they are very easy to maintain. I wish these would have been out when I first started doing makeup because they are perfect for beginners , pros, and everyone in between.
This mascara is too waxy for me. It doesn't do much, and it isn't very dark. It's a meh mascara for me. Oh and, I didn't notice any affects, as far as nourished or stronge lashes.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Explosion in Blackest Black

This is cool for detailing and getting those lashes that you can't get to, but not so good to do lashes alone. It's a little hard to control, and takes long because it's a little ball. Also, the blackest black is not too dark. It's a little on the grey side.
Super Black! Keeps lashes soft, but stay power is not good.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (waterproof)

This is my favorite waterproof mascara. I generally don't go for wp mascaras because I don't like the formula. But, if i know i'll be crying, swimming, getting wet, or having a long day, I will go for this one. Also, it's great for bottom lashes. It is pretty volumizing and dark, but it doesn't separate too well. But still, it makes your lashes look big and crazy, and it's got great stay power
I don't get the million affect with this one. It's a pretty wet formula, so it smears easily. But it also keeps lashes soft. Also, the blackest black isn't too dark. It's a little grey.
My HG Mascara. I have searched high and low for the perfect mascara, and I find myself coming back to this one. Realistically, there are other mascaras that do more, as far as volume, length, curl for your lashes. But this one is so practical. It's long lasting, There's no flaking, it's very easy to remove, and leaves no residue. This is such a perfect everyday mascara. I usually only use the black side, but when i want some extra length and volume, i use the white side too.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

This is a decent mascara. It is very comparable to other Maybeline mascaras, like Falsies(purple tube) and Collagen Mega Volume(yellow tube). It's one of those mascaras that dries more stiff, and it does not easily come of with water and soap, as it claims. It's pretty good with length and separation, but not so good with volume.
The pigment and staying power on this mascara is good. But, the consistency and the brush are not good. The brush is super stiff, and the bristles are a little too spread apart to catch every lash. This may also be why it tends to clump up. I did not notice any curling action, and not too much added volume either.
.i am always looking for the next best mascara. this one is definitely one of the best i have tried thus far. it's super black, makes lashes thicker and longer, and has great stay power, and gives a pretty curl. some down sides are it can be difficult to remove, and it it one of those mascaras that makes lashes stiff. it's more wet than dry. i have sensitive eyes, and i have not experienced any problems. but i have heard that this mascara turns eyes red. that just goes to show that everyone is different.what works for me may not work for you and vise-verse
Pros: -heat up FAST -really Hot -relatively inexpensive Cons: No ON /OFF switch - become too hot for delicate scalp/hair -pins do not hold well (but you can buy clips from sallys), and leave kinks/bumps in hair -
this product made my hair oily and globby, and leaves residue. it does not serve it's purpose, nor does it give volume.
