I can't believe this is #100 in mascara. This is #1 in my book and truly the best mascara I have ever tried, in both drugstore and high end. I have to laugh because while I have average eyelashes, they are not too short, but definitely not very long, I see an ophthalmologist every week for an eye condition, and every time I'm there she compliments on my eyelashes. Until recently, she nervously asked me what I was wearing, and told me that she didn't care how much it costed, she would pay it to get the same eyelashes. When I told her it was Maybelline and only six dollars, her mouth dropped open and now she is obsessed with it herself and wears it everyday. I have gotten almost every woman I know hooked on this mascara, my mom and aunts, my best friends, and even my boss. The only complaint I have heard is that it can be too clumpy, however, there is an easy solution to that. All you have to do is apply it as you normally would, and just as you are finishing up, wipe the sides of the wand off either on the edge of the tube or off on a paper towel, and go back in again and apply, basically combing out your lashes, and it looks beautiful every time. I honestly wish I could do a better job at putting into words how much my eye doctor, myself, and all the other woman in my life are obsessed with this mascara. :) Great job Maybelline! ...read more

.The main secret of the Mega Plush eyelash mask lies in its formula, with 40% less hard waxes, which is one of the main components of the overall product. Being Gel-Mousse results in softer pestles and prevents them from breaking (I give faith!).

The brush, called Flexor Brush, also struck me as it is giant and full of bristles. It loads enough product, so I recommend downloading it when you remove it from the packaging.

Color → The Mega Plush mask only comes in black and in my case I like it because I usually use only that color. Those who prefer brown or gray can cheer up but there will not be an option for the moment.
Texture → I really noticed a difference in texture when using it. While I'm not much of a fan of volume masks I recognize that Mega Plush has a differential. During the day I touched my eyelashes and felt them soft, as the mark promises. The Gel-Mousse formula is different from what we already know and it shows when you use it. I give you a point for that.
Pigmentation → My eyelashes are dark so it is difficult to say with certainty if the pigmentation is good and really leaves a deep black color.
Application → To apply it I followed the recommendations of the brand and it worked for me: slide the brush upwards from the root to the tip of the lashes to give more volume to each one. Apply products until you achieve the desired look. Removes easily with soap and water, or with makeup remover. Clarification on my part: unload the brush from the container, as I said before!
Durability → I am one of those who uses the eyelash mask from 7 in the morning until 10 at night so I consider myself a demanding client.
Packaging → the packaging looks like the other masks of the Volum'Express line. The difference is in the colors: turquoise and fuchsia and in the lid, which is a little more rounded than the previous ones. I find it cute and the color combination is fine pop! ...read more

First off, I ADORE THIS MASCARA! I've tried tons of mascaras, and nothing has delivered quite like this has. I have thin, fairly long lashes, and normally I go for a volume boosting mascara, but those tend to make my lashes clump and just make a mess. So I tried this one, and it amazed me! I've had it for about two months, and it's still working perfectly, even after using it almost every day. I'm actually shocked at how much product is in the tube!

Okay so now to talk about what it did for my lashes:
1. My lashes look like false lashes. Seriously. Even my friends are commenting on it. Falsies by Mabeline didn't even do that for me.
2. No clumps. None.
3. Lasts ALL DAY LONG. (That's saying something, since I'm a waitress and it's normally fairly hot in the back of the restaurant. Plus it's summer here.)
4. Each of my lashes are separated and covered with mascara, but it's not a ton of product. It looks wispy and pretty and natural.
5. If I want a more dramatic look, I put a second coat on, and I'm done! I love the second coat because it actually gives an amazing amount of volume, without looking overdone.

I found my mascara!!! ...read more

By far, my all-time favorite mascara! ♥
This is a great mascara for those who have, like me, really straight lashes that grow down. It will hold your curl and separate your lashes beautifully. Plus, it's easy to build without making eyelashes look spidery or gloppy. If you're leary of waterproof mascara, just get yourself some olive oil on a cotton round, place it on your eye, hold it for about 15 secs to allow the oil to break down the product and, voilá! Just use your preferred facial cleanser and done.
Great everyday mascara that will make miracles happen with your lashes & you will continue to buy because you will love it so much. I've literally gone through 10 tubes and planning on continuing to purchase. It's the best! ...read more

Love this drugstore waterproof mascara. This is especially good for natural makeup or no makeup-makeup days. The formula isn't goopy or too thick and coats every lash perfectly. The color is a rich dark black, which I love because it really defines the lashes. I would especially recommend this mascara for anyone who wants to give special attention to the bottom lashes. ...read more
