Product of the Week: Maybelline Express Volume Turbo Boost Mascara

Finally I get the chance to upload my Product of The Week! In this week’s installment, I’d like to present my favorite mascara at the moment. My favorite mascara of all time was actualy L’oreal Carbon Black mascara, but since I can’t find it here in Indonesia, I’ve to go look for another mascara to replace my Carbon Black.

I was at Carrefour and decided to get the Maybelline Express Volume Turbo Boost macara. Actually, I’ve tried the Maybelline Volume Express Hypercurl mascara last year, but it didn’t do anything much to me. So, I was a bit skeptical about the Maybelline Express Volume Turbo Boost mascara, but after my first try, I fell in love with it.

I bought the mascara for IDR Rp. 63,300 at Carrefour in Jakarta.

I found that the instruction from Maybelline Canada website is very useful. I applied this mascara as per instruction (sweep upwards and not to let it dry between coats) to get the best out of this mascara. Even when I did let it dry between application, there’s something about the bristle of the mascara that doesn’t let the product to get clumpy.

I love the fact that this mascara holds my curl all day long! Not only curls, it definitely gave me extra length on my lashes. However, it was not as volumizing as it promises. I don’t really mind it. I like my lashes to be more feathery and soft to touch, so this mascara is perfect for me. I’ve been using the mascara for the last few tutorials last week if you’d like to see more pictures.

You can apply the mascara lightly just for curls and length for a day makeup, or you can layer several coats of the mascara for a more intense, dramatic lashes. You can definitely layer this mascara and get maximum length, curl and a bit more volume. I personally like it the way I wore it in the picture below for daily use.

I’ve worn this mascara for a good 6 hours without smudging in Indonesia. However, keep in mind that I was inside an air-conditioned environment most of the time. I’m not sure how long this mascara will last if I was outdoor.

Will I buy this mascara again? ABSOLUTELY!

I gave this mascara 4.5 winks out of 5. It’s missing 0.5 because it does not give 5x the volume (compared to my bare lashes).
