This is the newest mascara from Maybeline that promises even more thickening power than the original Volum Express.I have short, skimpy lashes, and I am so in love with this mascara. It gives me really long, thick, feathery-looking lashes with just 2 coats. As much as it thickens, it doesn't clump. The formula is not too dry, not too wet. So the look is lots of lashes, not lots of mascara on the lashes.I can't speak to how well this mascara wears because I top it w/ Revlon Overtime Lash Tint, which makes everything wears like iron.

I had such high hopes for this mascara. I wanted it to thicken yet look natural. After two coats I noticed that it coated *every* lash.. it also looked quite natural. However, it didn't look lush at all. The formula wrapped around the lashes & thickend it - a tad bit. I didn't see anything dramatic. IMO its more of a wetter version of Full&Soft but f&s lengthens better. I think i'll stick to F&S.. maybe apply this over it to get some use out of it.

I'm not surprised that this mascara is getting slammed. However, I think the low rating is due to dishonest advertising rather than the poor performance of the product. When I saw this mascara at a local drugstore with a damn good coupon offer, I could not resist. I went in with little or no expectations. For me, this mascara did not flake or run and created noticeably thicker and longer lashes. It held a curl moderately well and even after 9 hours of intense sweating in a crowded club, it stayed put (I used the non-waterproof one). That's a pretty good mascara in my opinion. Does it give you lashes like in the adverts? No. It's a mascara, not a miracle. If a feathery, false-eyelash look is what you’re looking for, this product will certainly disappoint you and you’re better off just buying false eyelashes. But if you’re looking for a good mascara and you don’t have unrealistic expectations, Volum Express Turbo is for you. Overall, it's a good mascara and I'd definitely purchase it again if and whenever it comes out in black/brown.

Great mascara! Much better than the original, my lashes are long, thick, they hold a curl, perfect. They look like a tv commercial, do not flake, very pleased.

This is a pretty great mascara. Though if you do put one to many swishes on, it tends to clump a fair bit. I love the black colour and i find it great, long lasting and dosnt flake off

I have purchased 5 tubes so far, and I always purchase extra when it's on discount on my local stores. It's affordable, lengthens very well, and volumises nicely. Definitely one of the best mid-priced mascara out there - sometimes I think it's even better than igh-end ones from brands like Lancome. One or two swipes are enough to open your eyes - go above four swipes and you will never fail to get dolly-looking eyes.

This is my go to mascara! I love it. I wouldnt say its HG, but its close. I love that if i want it natural i use it lightly but if i want more dramatic it easily builds up to what i want. It dosnt smudge or flake which is great!

I'm fortunate enough to have naturally and long curly eye-lashes, so when purchasing my next mascara I was really looking for something with the wow factor. This was NOT it. The brush does not pass neatly through my lashes and even when using a brush from another mascara it clumps incredibly easily, is messy and as soon as it dries it's prone to flaking.

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.
