Product Review: VolumExpress Cat Eyes Mascara


Every successful huntress knows that her eyes are her most powerful weapon. Sure the mane helps attract attention and the talons assist in pinning him down, but it's her stop-him-in-his-tracks gaze that hypnotizes her prety and keeps him captive.

Turning plain lovely eyes into drop-dead gorgeous eyes, Maybelline New York has developed the Volum'Express Hyper Curl Cat Eyes Waterproof Mascara.

Evoking the dramatic intensity of a feline gaze with its dramatic visual impact, and the swiftness of a big cat's sinuous moves in its ease of application, Volum'Express Hyper Curl Cat Eyes Waterproof Mascara is the purr-fect mascara for the fiercely sexy woman.

Think of it as brush on ammunition for the femme fatale. it's so daring it's dangerous.
I got this almost a month ago, was actually looking for the Stiletto mascara also from Maybelline but wasn't able to get one and then i saw this. The chic black-pink packaging got me intrigued :)

yep, it looks like a comb...actually, it is a comb! it's not actually new to me since i've had comb-like wand from other brands like Fasio. But this one really separates the lashes, and gives you more volume and length. It doesn't pull the curl down. I usually use my Shiseido primer first before applying mascara to hold the curl...but this one, puts my lash primer to rest. :)

my lashes after one coat...
(curled my lashes with Shu Uemura curler)
curled + one coat of mascara VS curled

volumized and lengthened lashes in just one coat...meowr!

what i love:
  • cheaper than my used-to-be HG MAC Plush Lash mascara. Priced at Php385 (or less..i forgot!)
  • smudge-proof and waterproof...really stays put the whole day!
  • the chic packaging
  • no more wiggling at the roots! just comb your lashes and...HELLO, SEXY EYES!
  • would last a long time since one coat is already enough to have more length, more volume and more lifted lashes

what i hate:
  • hard to cleanse off...well, i'm just using a mild makeup remover (NIVEA). maybe it would be much easier if i use my Shu or my MAC cleanse-off oils
  • i can't think of anything else to hate about it!

and yeah, it's final. this is definitely my current HG mascara.

Hmm, i wish it comes in Brown too. But that won't be as feline-looking, no?

Siguro same as fasio? hard to remove??? I love the packaging your lashes look wow talaga!

Cristina said... how your lashes look after applying mascara. I agree with Nikki, it seems comparable to Fasio.

Ooohh...totally nice! I know now what I will try when I am in the market for mascara (which should be soon). :) I hate when mascaras clump on me and I like the wand on this!

It looks great! I want to have this too but I read in GT that this is very hard to remove so I didn't purchase this..maybe if I have my Lancome Bi Facil eye makeup remover, I'll try this hehe :)

Hi Jheng, thanks for posting a review on this. I saw at a Maybelline booth last weekend but didn't bother myself with it since I have 12other mascaras that I have to use up first; but I might just get myself this one to give my L'Oreal Voluminous a break (some of my mascaras haven't been opened anyway, so it wouldn't hurt getting a new one. hehe). I'm just freaking obsessed with my eyes. Thanks again!

Thanks for the review Jheng! I have Shiseido's Majorlica Majorca Mascara and they have the same applicator wand that looks like a mini comb! This is a great alternative!!
