It’s the “little things” in life that can make your days and evenings easier, and more fun (not to mention more beautiful). One new product from Maybelline,called Volum’Express One by One Mascara, could be your next little thing, “must-have.”
I really love the fact that Maybelline understands that not every woman wants a waterproof mascara, and makes this One by One mascara available in washable shades of: Very Black, Blackest Black, Brownish Black; and Waterproof shades of Very Black, Blackest Black. *I got the washable variety in “Very Black” and will be reporting on my personal experience with it, in a moment.
Maybelline already makes a dizzying array of great mascara products, but the One By One brush is tapered on the ends, and has long and short, thin bristles designed to reach every lash. This “lash catcher” design works out to have about 3 bristles per lash (based on an average of 100 lashes per eye), focused on every lash. Now that’s impressive!
The mascara itself is moist and covers very well. On top of that, while I have very blonde lashes, they’re also short. This mascara, in one pass, made my lashes so dark and long that they actually touched my glasses! The wand was easy to grip and easy to use. On top of lengthening my lashes, it also did separate them very well, without causing any clumps. This, is great news! The mascara makes your lashes look long and noticeable. I love some of the other Maybelline mascaras that add a bit more volume (even though this one is supposed to be all about volume). What I got was beautifully colored lashes with every single one, coated without clumping. That’s more important to me, especially for a daytime look, than lashes so thick they look fake. Another plus with this mascara is that it doesn’t use fibers or other extenders — your lashes look clean and real, and beautiful.
The suggested retail: is $8.15 (a veritable bargain in the beauty world). You can find Maybelline in tons of drug stores and other mass market retailers. If you are looking for a new mascara that makes your lashes a stand-out, try this one!
