Maybelline Volume Express One by One Mascara

On my trip to Belfast at the start of the month, I picked up the latest mascara from Maybelline.  It's their latest offering and the full title is Maybelline Volume Express One by One Mascara.  I first heard about it watching one of Tiffany D's videos, who has a-maz-ing eyelashes so when she recommended this, I had to try it!  It was £6.99 and in Boots in Ireland it's €8.99 at the moment.

The wand is an oval shape and is made of plastic, like the Max Factor False Lash Effect one, so I thought it was going to be great, since False Lash Effect is one of my favourite mascaras.

I was underwhelmed with this mascara.  It gives volume but not much length at all.  It doesn't give any curl at all either.  It kind of made my eyelashes look stumpy, and what girl wants stumpy looking eyelashes?!

I love this promo picture for the mascara and was *this close* to buying the liner that's featured in it.  But I remembered that I have a green eyeliner from Mac in the shade So there Jade, which is pretty close to the colour in the photo if you ask me!

This is what I came up with:

Has anyone else tried this mascara?  If so, what did you think?


  1. Haven't had much luck with Maybelline mascaras in the past, they just never seem to work for me. I always end up with really flat stumpy looking eyelashes. Am currently loving the 17 Photo Finish Mascara in Blue/Black.

  2. Great- delighted I saw this because I was thinking of making it my next mascara purchase! I'll stick with False Lash effect I think.

  3. Good to know! I'm always hunting mascaras and will avoid this one like plague! Well done Missus!

  4. Oh my god.... I was never ever ever a Maybelline fan....ever (let me emphasise again) ever!!! However Maybelline Falsies mascara is beating all of my other mascaras hands down at the moment including the Lancome Hypnose Drama!!!!!

  5. It looks great on you, but I don<t think a separating mascara is what I need z=

  6. I haven't tried this one, but i love maybelline's The Colossal waterproof mascara in black.
    I have tried so many mascaras but I always seem to go back to that one..
    I find the big brush helps to plump up the lashes, if you want more volume it's great

    I agree with you on max factor's false lash effect mascara :) its one of my faves as well
