Hey there!!!

On today's Beauty post, I would like to talk about the Maybelline mascaras I tried so far (and still had the tubes lying around! haha).
For starters, my lashes are super straight and they don't hold curls that well. So, any mascara that promises curling properties is automatically on my "to try list".
I also like to have some volume and extra length. Basically, I want it all! whahaha
Curl + Length + Volume = happy me!

You may say: try false lashes! Well, I never did that... I'm afraid of an allergic reaction to the glue or that I won't be able to fix it properly or that I can't find the right type of lashes.
So, if you have any advises please let me know in the comment section.

Okay, now on to today's post!
Here are the mascara's I still had around:

From Left to Right:
-  The One by One Volum' Express Satin Black
-  The Colossal Volum' Express 100% Black
-  The One by One Volum' Express
-  Big Eyes Volum' Express
-  The Rocket Volum' Express waterproof

(A)   My favorite: The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof
(B)   My least favorite: Big Eyes Volum' Express


     The reason why (A) became my favorite is that, its brush and formula, does what I need to my lashes, without giving it clumps or whatsoever! The lashes stay curled the whole day due to the waterproof formula. It gives me length as well! It's just a great mascara if you have lashes like mine. The minus of this mascara is that it's very difficult to remove. You really need a dual phase eye make up remover! (this could be a future post!)
Top: Wand for upper lashes Bottom: Wand for lower lashes
     On the other hand, the reason why I hate (B) is actually because it does the opposite of (A) in every way! It does not curl my lashes, the brush for the upper lashes is pretty much crap! The lashes will get a whole lot of clumps and in the end you end up with a 3-lash-eye-look. I don't like it at all!! The only "not so bad" part is the side specified for the lower lashes; the brush is tiny and does not carry that much product. 
But to me, it's just not practical to have 2 different brushes/formulas for upper and lower lashes. I've got not time for that!
The other 3 mascaras are okay, but I didn't notice anything spectacular about their performance. Perhaps it's my lashes, but they just didn't do anything to me.

Which mascara do you like the most?
