I am always on the hunt for the perfect mascara. One that will add some length, LOTS of volume and be able to hold a curl all day long without flaking. Impossible you say? Thats what I thought too, until I came across Maybelline's Mega Plush Volume Express mascara.
From Maybelline's webiste:
Now, mega volume goes mega plush.
- Our first gel-mousse mascara with 40% less hard waxes for massive volume with a supple touch
- Extra-soft, patented flexor brush caresses lashes
- Lashes never brittle or flaky
- Available in washable and waterproof formulas
At first, I found the formula too wet, it needed about a week of use to get a little thicker, but once it thickened up, I found myself reaching for this mascara over my all-time favourite, Cover Girl's Lash Blast.
This mascara allows you to build good volume in two coats without looking spider-y or clumpy. It adds a little bit of length to my lashes, but nothing overwhelming, which is fine by me since I have long lashes naturally. My most important criteria in a good mascara are ability to build volume and the ability to hold a curl. My lashes are very straight, and even after curling them, they tend to straighten out again after a few hours. I found this mascara was able to hold the curl all day, which is unheard of for a non-waterproof mascara (at least on my lashes anyways). It washes off with soap and water and doesn't flake throughout the day or irritate my sensitive eyes.

Overall, I give this mascara 5/5. It delivers on all of its claims, and is great for everyday wear. However, when I go out at night, I'll still probably grab my Lash Blast waterproof for that extra drama.
