20130620_142518

Pros:

  1. Reasonably priced. Less than RM 30
  2. Last all day long
  3. Gives a very natural and soft look to your lashes
  4. Does not clump and very light weight upon application.

Cons:

  1. Contains ultra-lengthening fibers which tend to fall out during the day.
  2. Not waterproof
  3. Not entirely smudge proof (smudges a little)
  4. Not for those who looks for a false lashes effect mascara.
  5. Does not hold curls very well.

Conclusion:

This is indeed a not too bad mascara. However, I really dislike the fibers which tend to fall out onto my cheeks during the day and it is a pain to clean up the mess. The only features which I really love would be the natural and soft look.

Rating: 3/5

Will I repurchase: No

 

Right: Maybelline The Magnum Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara

It proclaims to give volume and cat eyes look due to its new cat eyes brush.

Where to get: Any local drugstores

Pros:

  1. High staying power due to its waterproof feature thus making it not easy to be removed.
  2. It does gives volume and strong curling power (provided you curl your lashes prior application)
  3. Reasonably priced. About RM 28
  4. Amazing brush. The brush is curved which ease application.
  5. Smudge proof.
  6. I loved the way the mascara has enhanced my look

Cons:

  1. The mascara gets thicker and more clumpy once opened. So, this do really disappoint me.
    TIP: Wipe your brush with a tissue prior to application.

Conclusion:

As you can see, there is only 1 disadvantage to the Maybelline Mascara. So, this definitely worth a try!

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase: Yes!!!!
