Hello everyone! The temperature is on a rise and my city is sweating profusely. People all around are complaining from tans and burns and greasy skin. Well well, my post today has got nothing to do with the temperature and humidity surge in my city, apart from the fact that I am writing amidst this weather. 🙂 I have long since wanted to try the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara. Pity I didn’t and only chanced upon it now. It has been in the market for a quite long time and you might have already experienced it, so consider my post today as a throwback review to the already popular mascara. 🙂

My Overview of the Product :
I have only realized a little late the life that a mascara can add to your eye makeup. While it can perk up simple kohl-lined eyes, it can also add the much needed drama to a party eye look. We all know how not using mascara after doing that careful eye makeup is close to a sin. 🙂 Mascara adds length, volume or curl and sometimes all to highlight those beautiful eyes of yours. But I am not always in a mood to wear hard-to-remove, extreme drama-driven mascara. Or maybe I want to rock a mascara in the daytime. That is when the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara is a perfect pick. 🙂
The packaging is a signature Maybelline mascara, a pretty one at that. The washable one has a plain black applicator and the wash-proof one has a metallic rose-gold one. I have the washable one. I quite like the quirky packaging that Maybelline does for its mascaras, and the black-pink color coordination looks pretty. The mascara wand is thick (as this is a volume-imparting and curling mascara) with a slight curve, enabling pushing up the lashes for a hint of curl and more open eyes.
The color of the liquid is a stark black and I find the application pretty straightforward. However owing to the thickness of the wand, I find it a tad difficult to apply the mascara to my lower lashes and have smeared it at times. What now, I do commit a mistake or two at times, and can I not? 😀 Of course I take some time to get a hang of the product at hand. It is also a little uncomfortable trying to reach the inner corner of the eyes for curling the lashes there. I do need to be super-careful. This mascara tends to clump a little when trying to layer, so you need to work pretty quick and on an eye at a time.
The Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara most certainly adds definition to my lashes, but not in a very dramatic manner, rather in a subtle way. It curls my lashes and adds volume to them, making my eyes appear more open. Although it stays put a good number of hours, the lashes start losing the curl after around 4-5 hours. It doesn’t melt away though. It is also easy to remove and doesn’t hurt the eyes.
I love using the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara at times when I want to sport just a kohl-lined look, or for a no-makeup makeup look, or even for lighter, daytime looks. It doesn’t look gaudy in the face, but makes the eyes more appealing in a rather subtle manner. 🙂
This is how this looks on my lashes :
The Final Verdict :
Overall, the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara is a decent pocket-friendly mascara. I like most things about it. The understated definition it gives to my lashes, the stark black color and the packaging. I did not have very high hopes from this product, so I am much more than only just satisfied with the results. 🙂 However I do wish the wand had a variable thickness, to help reach and define the lower lashes and those in the inner corner more easily. If you are looking for a less dramatic, yet modest mascara on a budget, I say the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara is one of the best in the market today. 🙂
