Maybelline Volum’ Express Mascara is an amazing drugstore mascara that gives you beautiful long and fluttery lashes. It’s insanely amazing and I can’t rant about it enough, but I’ll try. ;)
This is the mascara that I am currently using, but sadly I will have to find a new brand soon because I am no longer buying makeup that is not cruelty free. Maybelline performs painful tests on animals in China because China requires animal testing, even though Maybelline could simply choose not to sell in China. This is unacceptable to me, so I want you all to know that I am reviewing the quality of this mascara and do NOT approve of Maybelline’s standards of morality.
Apart from my issues with Maybelline’s animal testing, I have no issues with this mascara. The applicator has lots of thin (but not poky) bristles that are great for giving lashes a “plush” effect. The formula gives you lots of volume and dries out/flakes at about 4-5 months, which is a pretty reasonable lifespan for mascara. While Mega Plush Mascara is usually not clumpy, I would recommend purchasing a lash comb for the occasional spider lash.
Please don’t buy this mascara!! Although it’s a great product I cannot condone the animal testing that Maybelline carries out. They shave patches of fur off of animals and drip makeup samples onto the skin to see if it scabs, tie animals down and drip cosmetics into their eyes (which can infected or bleed) and practice other incredibly inhumane experiments on living beings. Animal testing is NOT necessary!! Many brands (wet n wild, NYX, Tarte, Anastasia Beverly Hills and more) offer great makeup that is tested on fake human skin instead of innocent rabbits and dogs.

I love this product!  I've been trying to find a 'black enough' mascara for a while.  My eyelashes are naturally very light and difficult to see.  This mascara doesn't clump nearly as much as other products I have used for the same price or more.  I like the applicator as it allows for easy access to all lashes.  This is a great product and I will buy it again.

I love these little mascaras that Maybelline sells. I wore this over 2 years ago and I got it from my local dollar general, where I used to buy all my makeup. It was good mascara for a cheap price like maybe 5-6$ at the most. I felt pretty when I was wearing it and made my eyelashes long and thick, and I loved the little spooly brush, it felt plush and soft. I would definitely get this again some day.

This is a great little water proof mascara for the price. I purchased it at Walgreen's Walmart also has it. Theirs no clumping with this one and the color is rich black. I would defiantly purchase this again.  I highly recommend this product. I have sensitive eyes so I have to watch what I use and this product had no irritation.

I LOVE this mascara. I’ve been using this one since high school and haven’t gone back since. Makes my lashes long and dark, doesn’t clump, doesn’t get flakey after long time wear. Great price and you can find it in any drug store/target ect. Great mascara if you don’t wanna pay a ton of money for high end mascara.

One of the worst mascaras I have ever used in my life. It starts flaking so soon after application. Not only that, but it did absolutely nothing to my lashes. The formula either didn’t want to hold my lashes in a curl or just didn’t want to give them any length. There is no way I would use it again.

I personally have been using this product since I first started makeup. it is a very natural looking but can also build is up. I have not experienced clumps. I have bought mine at Wal-Mart and Ulta. Have continued to buy this product and I think i will continue to buy this product.

Awful. The wand is a pain to use, and when you comb through your lashes, it almost flops off and gets product on your eyelid. The formula looks nice, but it has ZERO staying power. It flakes like crazy! I use a waterproof mascara specifically for the staying power. Do not recommend.

I love this mascara! It’s a great price and you get a lot of product! The product does not have a scent which is important because some do and if they do it irritates my eyes. It’s the perfect consistency as well. I find a lot of the time the product is too wet or chunky and that just won’t work. Love this!!
