Review; Maybelline One By One Volum' Express Mascara

Hello guys!

Today I burnt my hand with bleach, I was bleaching my hair extensions and now have a lovely blister on my middle finger - ouch! I will be doing a post on my newly coloured extensions soon :P

But anyway...

For my birthday my mam and dad got me a goodie bag of makeup, included was Maybelline One By One Volum' Express Mascara. I have been trying the mascara alongside Benefit's BAD Gal and Maybelline's The Falsies Volum' Express and it's quickly become my favourite every day mascara.

What it says; "Maybelline The One-by-One Volum' Express mascara. Up to 4x bigger looking, flirtier lashes. You’ll discover lashes you didn’t know you had, for clean, clump-free volume, instantly!"

My lashes are nothing to brag about they are medium in length, and quite full, pretty normal. The difference between using a mascara that separates and doesn't separate is really important for me as I hate the look of lashes when they are clumped together into like 5 lashes! So when I saw that this mascara had quite fanned out bristles I was really eager to try it!

This mascara lengthens my lashes without clumping them, and separates them nicely. Perfect! Although it doesn't give much volume, it definitely lengthens them! 

 The mascara doesn't dry and flake into my eyes either as the day goes on and the mascara lasts all day. 

I like how you buy this with the brush not in the mascara. It comes in a red tube with green writing. Its nice and bright and stands out when you walk past the makeup stand. The brush is one of the rubber kind that starts off red too.

Overall, I think it's a really great mascara. But, for those who want really dramatic lashes, this mascara may not be the right one for you.

Im going to be doing a updated mascara routine soon, as the mascaras I use have completely changed! You can read my older post here.
