Introducing Maybelline’s first gel-mousse mascara: Volum’ Express Mega Plush contains 40% less hard waxes for massive, yet supple lashes. The patented Flexor Brush gently coats every lash with mega volume that’s never stiff and never brittle.
How cute is the teal-blue packaging? It kinda reminds me of For Audrey. That said, the packaging is not the only thing that’s special about this mascara. I’ve mentioned bend-y wands before but I usually bend them manually (as in, they don’t come that way) but this mascara does! At first, it’s kind of tricky to use a bendy wand especially if you’ve never used one before but eventually you get used to it. Unfortunately, this didn’t do it for me. I was quite disappointed after using this because I expected huge, “plush” lashes.
I believe that if you have naturally thick and long lashes, this mascara will fluff them up for you, beautifully. As for my sad little lashes, because of the way the brush is shaped, I only got some extremely natural volume. If you follow my blog, you should know by now that if I’m going to bother with wearing any makeup at all, then I want huge lashes. As for the gel-mousse formula, I found it quite dry. Again, I prefer a more wet formula. That said, this mascara grew on me and I found myself starting to like it a lot because surprisingly enough it plays very well with other mascaras! Would I repurchase? Nah.
