Review: Maybelline Turbo Volum' Express Mascara
Maybelline The Turbo Volum' Express, waterproof
I bought this when i realized that I didn't have any waterproof mascara. That is a definite must have as the weather gets warmer (and stickier). The sales assistant told me that this is Maybelline's new mascara, so I decided to try it. Although, I'm not 100% whether it's new or not.
The mascara wand.
• Turbo-boost formula and Anti-Clump Brush quickly thicken lashes for up to 7X more volume
• Contact lens safe, ophthalmologist-tested
The mascara applies nicely, and doesn't clump. It holds a curl and it definitely is water proof. I wore it to an aqua aerobics class and it didn't smudge at all.
The only downside? It really doesn't give "up to 7x more volume". More like up to 0.50% more volume. Here's a before and after:
left: Before, Right: After (after curling and applying about 5-6 coats)
I think this mascara gives a nice natural look to the lashes. But it doesn't give the kind of volume that I was expecting. It's kind of "meh" compared to Maybelline's Falsies, which give such wonderful volume. I think it would be great if you want a waterproof mascara that gives you a more natural look, like if you're going to the pool or the beach. It's not great if you want a dramatic look for a night out.
Have any of you tried this mascara? Did you have better results than I did?
