One of my new staples.
I'm usually really sceptical of products that get rave reviews from everyone. Really, it's THAT good? But I must say I'm so glad I caved and decided to try this mascara. I hate thin mascaras that give no volume or thickness to my lashes and this is definitely a great mascara for thickening lashes. I can put on three coats clump free. I think it's the awesome curved wand that allows you to get every single corner lash that I love so much. It has never smudged or flaked on me and stays put on my bottom lashes. I'm in mascara love!

Maybelline New York Volum' Express Mascara is waterproof and comes in bright purple packaging. The mascara contains a slightly curved brush which allows you to reach all your eyelashes.
I bought this in the Very Black shade. The mascara heps make my eyelashes look longer and thicker and it isn't clumpy when you apply it.
I don't wear mascara all the time but this is a good product and good value for money
Good if you have thin eyelashes as it adds volume and length.

Great Waterproof Mascara
I love this waterproof mascara. It doesn't have any scent. It has a great, true black color. It really adds volume to my eyelashes without being obvious. I find that it lasts all day, and it comes off fairly easily at night. I love that it doesn't flake.
This is a staple in my make-up bag because it doesn't irritate contact lenses. It's gentle and I can wear my contacts all day and not worry about my mascara irritating my eyes or my lenses.
It can be a little messy when you apply it, so you have to be sure to have as little on the brush as possible. It's a fairly wet mascara as well, so if you touch your eyes at all before this is set, it will smudge. I learned the hard way that the waterproof version won't budge at all once it's set and smudged. Not a huge deal, but there can be a learning curve.
Don't open your eyes really wide right after applying this - you will NOT be able to remove those black dots.
Someone looking for a volumizing, waterproof mascara.

great mascara for beginners
My first mascara ever since I started wearing makeup, the colour is really dark, makes my lashes thicker, big and fuller, it is very long lasting, stays on all day, I tend to get a little smude but thats alright. My lashes stayed curled from a person with straight lashes.
If I layer this with a thin mascara it doesnt clump on me.

A good mascara with an easy to apply brush
This was one of the first mascaras I ever brought for my ever growing make up collection and after all these years I still rate it as one of my favorites. I have tried other brands but I always find myself coming back to this one. For me I found the bush reduced clumping and it gave my eyelashes a very thick and full look. Overall it a versatile mascara (especially for the price)

messy and it clumps
I am not a fan of this one. I got the non waterproof version in black drama. The brush has fine bristles so lifts and separates lashes but the content clumps and smudges very quickly. Maybe because it's non waterproof so it doesn't survive summer heat as well. It imparts instant volume and lengthens my lashes well. However it transfers quickly on to my face thus giving me panda eyes. My lashes are long they just need definition and volume. This would maybe work for someone with short and stubby lashes (and in cool weather) as my lashers look like spider legs after applying this. Yikes!!!

Too messy and difficult brush
After reading rave reviews I bought this hoping it would help my straight and short lashes. Unfortunately I found the brush to be too big for my asian eyes and it seemed to clump them together rather than seperate and give the illusion of false lashes. The brush just doesn't work for inner corners and it's easy to poke yourself in the eye because its just so large! I think plastic brushes such as the Covergirl's clump crusher seem to work better with my eye shape but this mascara just really disappointed me. I found the formula to be too wet, and it got very messy when the brush touched my skin. I know waterproof mascaras are waxier so they hold the curl better but this mascara when applied to curled lashes just made them droop faster because its formula was so heavy.
I guess I'd recommend this to people who have very sparse lashes which are naturally spread out. Then the brush would be easier to use and volumising effect would work.

Perfect for dramatic lashes!
Love maybelline mascaras as I find the waterproof formulae hold a curl very well. This one did not disappoint! I have very short lashes that point straight downward, but with a quick squeeze with an eyelash curler and 2 costs of this, my eyelashes were big, dark and bold!! I was worried that it would clump a lot as it feels quite wet compared to "full and soft" but as long as you wipe the brush along the rim as you pull the wand out, you'll remove any excess. Follow the prompts on the packet to help enhance the curl! It's great for a dramatic look! Favourite of all my mascaras!!
By the end of the day, it had smudged a little but that is the only negative I have with this mascara! It is to remove with waterproof makeup remover without vigorous tugging or rubbing!
Lashes that don't normally hold a curl!

One of the best mascara I've tried
I'm a massive mascara junkie and I had heard such great things about this mascara. All those great things were true. It's volimizing and lengthening and pretty much does everything in one. My lashes are naturally quite long so some mascaras tend to clump. This mascara doesn't do that, it makes your lashes look fuller without taking them too far.
Don't go over board with too many coats.
Those who love dramatic eyelashes but don't like wearing actual falsies.

Love it, perfect.
I love the curve on the applicator. I think it allows much more easy coverage of the side lashes and for bottoms I usually flip it over to get the more precise application.
It is quite easily buildable. The first coat goes on nice and is enough to hold a curl as well as add that darkening to the lashes for a natural beauty look. At the same time though, extra layers rarely result in clumping what with the bristles being spaced out like they are.
It holds the curl for quite a long time but is also easily removed with a cleansing oil. At the same time, there is no noticeable smudging. Even once when I was crying with it on, there was no running of mascara.
Great product and I've already bought my second tube!

good but not great
I found it really volumising and good waterproofness and held the curl well, except tended to clump.
