Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara – Review

Mascara – an eye product girls can’t do without! Once you’ve got it for yourself, there’s no coming back! You keep repurchasing it and don’t hesitate trying out more brands and colors. Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara (Very Black) is my first one and before this I wasn’t interested in mascaras at all but this one, I got a hang of it. My review will be on this today!

Price and Quantity: Rs. 300/- for 9.2 ml

Shelf Life: 24 months

What it Claims? 
Featuring a powerful curl-lock formula, this mascara gives you voluminous, curled eyelashes for up to 18 hours. Sweep on this mascara and add definition and drama to your eyes! Here’s why you’ll love it: 
• Has an exclusive curl-lock formula that gives you dramatically curled lashes 
• Adds volume for expressiveness 
• Keeps lashes curled and voluminous for up to 18 hours 
• Comes in waterproof and washable variants 

I’ve got the easy wash (waterproof) variant because waterproof ones do much harm to lashes and eyes. Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Easy Wash Mascara comes in a full black packaging with name and initials written in glossy pink font. I love how it looks! Mascara’s brush wand has fine bristles and is slightly curved for a precise application. These are great for upper lashes and for lower ones, I use the wand’s opposite side.

My Experience: I have medium length lashes, not too thick and not too thin. This mascara has got a thick and dry consistency. At first I thought I’ve got a dried solution but after applying it on lashes it was pretty thick and that’s the reason why it makes lashes appear thick. Mascara wand is easy to use and it doesn’t get messy even if you’re not a pro at it. Once I apply it, it dries up quickly. One coat gives volume to lashes and is apt for daily wear but more than that, gives an impression of falsies if you have thick lashes. It clumps if you don’t apply second coat instantly after the first one. It lifts the lashes and make eyes appear smokey and hot but doesn’t curl them. I apply it to lower lashes too and they look insanely beautiful. I sometimes skip kajal for this! 

Its wear time is the best thing ever! It stays on my eyelashes until I take it off by myself. It stayed on for 10 hours at least. I’ve tried washing it with just plain water but I wasn’t satisfied as clumps were still there so I used cotton dipped in oil to remove it and it gets removed easily this way. It’s not waterproof but doesn’t budge and is water resistant. I love using it on daily basis. I would say it’s the best mascara for daily wear and make eyes stand out!


  • Even it it’s not waterproof, it doesn’t get washed away with water.
  • It stays until I take it off.
  • Gives instant life to eyes and lashes.
  • Mascara’s wand is slightly curved which results in easy application.
  • More coats = More volume to lashes!
  • It clumps if you don’t apply it properly.
  • Doesn’t curl lashes.
Final Words: I love how this mascara makes my eyelashes full and voluminous. It’s my first mascara and I’m in love with it. It can make the thinnest eyelashes look long and lifts them up. It stays put for long hours and performs like a waterproof one but you need to take it off properly! It can give a daily wear look to intense lashes smokey look depending on the coats.
