Mascara is one of those underrated products in my makeup list. I love experimenting with various other makeup products , but mascara is something with which I have experimented the least, honestly. So basically out of the few mascaras I have used, today I will be reviewing the Maybelline hypercurl volume express mascara
About the product
The product comes in a black and pink tube with the wand brush being a little curved which makes differential application of the upper and the lower eyelashes convenient. This mascara is very thick and creamy and dries up to give a matte finish.
Maybelline New York’s Volum ‘Express Hypercurl Mascara gives curled eyelashes with a curl lock formula that lasts for up to 18 hours. Available in washable black and waterproof black variants. Just one sweep with the mascara wand helps you get lashes that have spectacular volume and thickness.
The Hypercurl formula in the mascara works to achieve a dual effect: it instantly builds 3 times the volume in your lashes and helps curl them, giving you thick, curly lashes that look ultra-glam.
HOW TO USE: Step 1. Start at the base of your lashes with the wand and slowly drag the wand upwards in a zig-zag motion. Step 2. Do not let mascara dry in between coats. Use the wand to comb out any clumps on your lash tips. Step 3. Easily remove the mascara with Maybelline New York’s makeup remover
Price: 300 INR
My take on this product
Firstly before going into the details of my experience with this product, I must mention that this same product comes in 2 variants: one is washable and another is waterproof. So it totally depends on your choice of makeup to pick whichever you want. I have picked the washable variant for some reasons like
- My last lakme waterproof mascara tore off many of my lashes even with the Maybelline makeup remover
- I have heard from people that its waterproof variant is way too stubborn and can only be removed with a makeup solubilising cream (like the chamomile makeup remover cream from body shop) , followed up by the makeup remover liquid or cleanser
I personally love the kind of makeup that stays long and neat until disturbed and also can be removed with normal efforts.
Now this washable mascara is of thick and creamy consistency and application is quite convenient with the curved wand. The maybelline hypercurl mascara dries up to give a matte finish but it doesn’t dry up immediately, rather I get enough time to separate the lashes and thicken the coating.
Clumping of lashes is a problem with this mascara because of its extremely thick consistency but as it is washable, a little drop of water on the wand can settle this issue and separate the lashes.
Also , if left unwashed, it can literally stay perfect upto 24 hours (I have actually tried this once) and sweating isn’t a problem with this mascara either. Once dried, a single splash of water won’t cause your mascara to come off, so it’s perfect all day , and removal requires slow dissolution of the mascara with water and washing off.
P.S. make sure you don’t happen to cry with this washable mascara on!😆😆😆
I would give it a thumbs up 👍 for :
- Comes in both washable and waterproof variant
- Product Can be built up to give that thickening effect on the lashes
- Dries slow
- Dries to a matte finish
- Nice packaging
I would give it a thumbs down 👎 for :
- Little clumping of lashes do occur
- Gives an effect of moderately thick lashes
How much would I rate it out 5
