Mascara Rave: Maybelline Magnum Mascara



If you ask me what completes an eye look, it's the mascara. I can't stand an uncurled, no mascara eye look when it comes to doing my makeup.

Why you ask?
  • Applying mascara is actually one of the easiest step in doing your eye makeup. A swipe on each eye and you're good to go.. Add some more tofor more volume.
  • Mascara, even without eye makeup instantly livens up the eyes. Why do you think a celebrities and models always have mascara on?
  • It really completes your look and make you look wide awake and with proper application, fresh.
  • Your eye shadows will pop more when mascara are applied. Specially when it comes to smokey eyes.



But I know a lot out there have all the apprehensions and excuses not to use mascara.
So, let me sway you to think otherwise.

Let me introduce you the latest Maybelline mascara, The Magnum Volum'Express Mascara. It gives 9x more volume and is formulated to fit the Asian lashes. If you have tiny sparse lashes, this is probably a good fit for you. But if you're like me who have sparse and thin but long lashes, help it out with a two swipes of the Magnum mascara to give the volume we need.

The brush wand was made to fit typical Asian lashes.


The wand cradles the lashes with its wide brush comb.


The sides of the wand covers the tips of the lashes with proper amount of product.


The tip of the wand is just right to get into nooks and crannies that typical mascara wand can't get into.


Know the color you're getting at the bottom of each tube.

Care for the product to speak for itself?


No mascara, uncurled lashes.


No mascara, curled lashes (Maybelline Smooth Felt Liner applied)


2 coats of Maybelline Magnum Mascara

My experience after application:
  • Minimal to no clumping
  • affordable price at Php429.00 each tube.
  • No bleeding down the lower eye part.
  • Waterproof.
  • Easy to remove with a good eye makeup remover.
  • Doesn't cause lashes to fall off when removing it.
  • Truly give volume to my lashes (see results)
  • Less smudging when touched and when I accidentally scratch my eyes.
  • No smudging for good 12 to 14 hours.
  • Doesn't need a lot of swipes to get desired results.
  • Great consistency.
I really don't have anything bad to say about this mascara. Although I've heard that some experiences their lashes losing its curl with this mascara. So far, I have not experienced it. I advise on getting yourself a perm lash at your favorite aesthetics salon to keep your lashes curled.

There you have it. I wish I was able to convince many of you to reconsider your thoughts on mascara. Make your experience about it a lot easier with a Maybelline Magnum mascara. :)

much love,
Shen
