Maybelline Classic Volume Express WATERPROOF Mascara Swatches + Review (Before + After)



Long time no seee..... Long story short, I scheduled a lot of posts whilst travelling and NONE POSTED- sigh. Anyway, back again!

Today I'm going to be a rave review on my must-have mascara of the moment- and it's an absolute bargain. I picked up Maybelline Classic Volume Express Waterproof on whim in tesco because I loved the colour of the tube and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the actual product also.

As the name suggests the product is waterproof, but this product may as well be called bulletproof. It is a nightmare and a half to take off but so perfect at the same time.

It gives your make-up an almost hollywood look as it stays so perfect, and holds your eyelashes in the same place all day. It's also extremely black which makes it the perfect night-out pick me up.

Pros:
+Lengthening
+Volumising
+Holds curl
+Doesn't flake
+Very black
+Tube lasts a while
+Waterproof
+Cheap

Cons:
- Nightmare to take off

The product costs £4.99 which is amazing value for money, and I really recommend it if you're going on holiday or your make-up doesn't stay put on nights out. Buy here.

  29. The difference is really something and your photo captures that perfectly! I've got to admit, I don't much like the idea of it being a nightmare to take off though.. and mainly because I have a habit of rubbing my eyes too much when taking off makeup as it is!

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  42. Wow, that is a big difference indeed!
    I never dared to buy maybelline mascaras because I've always been afraid that they'll make my lashes clump together but I guess I can give them a try now.
    You have beautiful eyes, btw! :)
