Product Review: Maybelline Magnum Super Film Mascara


Look what I got at my recent trip to PCX, Greenbelt 3 with Sophie and Jheng! It's the new Maybelline Magnum Mascara Volum' Express Super Film (Php399)! This is the latest Maybelline mascara released here in the Philippines. I just love being with my beauty blogger best friends. It's fun shopping for makeup when I'm with them. They just get that you need to buy a newly launched mascara even if you have several mascara opened at home. lol! 


The packaging reminds me of Wonder Woman colors. Lol.

When it comes to mascara, I can't resist whenever Maybelline releases a new one. I just couldn't. So when I saw the Magnum Super Film Mascara, I just had to get it. I'm weak like that. And for Php399, it's practically like getting it for free!

I fell in love with the Magnum Mascara from way back but I'm sure many share the dilemma of it being so tough to remove. It's a good thing I always have my favorite Maybelline Makeup Remover. If not, panda eyes all the way after bathing! But damn, does it stay freaking put on your lashes all day long!


I love newly opened mascara

The curved wand of this mascara makes application faster and it reaches on the inner and outer corner lashes easier, too. 

The formula is a little bit too thick for me but it effectively coats my lashes really well. Unfortunately, it can get a little clumpy when I apply too much. Good thing though that a swipe or tow is enough to effectively give me a nice long and volumized lashes.




The bristles I think is made more for those with thin lashes to cover and provide volume. I like how maybelline still makes wire-bristles. I think all my Volum' Express lashes are wire brushes and I love all of them. 

What sets the Maybelline Magnum Super Film Mascara is that the formula is washable, meaning easy to remove with water. So, if you're just wearing mascara as your makeup, you can go directly and shower and your mascara willl eaily slide off! Galing, di ba? It's just like my L'oreal Curl Impact Collagene Mascara!


A bit of result shall we?



Here it shows how clean the Magnum Super Film Mascara applied on to the lashes. Will do more looks using this mascara for sure!


What I love about about Maybelline Magnum Super Film Mascara:

  • Washable formula
  • Instant volumizing
  • Lasts for hours!!
  • Easy to remove even with water
  • No smudging
  • One or two swipes are enough to coat lashes
  • The curve wand makes application easier and faster
  • Great for Asian eyes

What I don't love about Maybelline Magnum Super Film Mascara:
  • Can get a little clumpy when you apply too much product and let it sit before applying again.

nice review and pretty FOTD! i loved by Magnum waterproof mascara too before it retired hehe.

when you say washable by water, how does it fare when you cry for example and rub your eyes - does it melt then?

I've been eyeing this mascara for a while now. will probably try this when I finish up my maybelline falsies mascara.  awesome review!

I love your reviews! Personally, I allow the mascara to semi-dry on my lashes before applying the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and even 6th coat. It makes my lashes really long and quite volumized, but I've seen better. By the 6th application though I note some clumping which is easily fixed by running a lash comb through it. It's a pretty wet formula in my opinion though.
