Hola Gorgeous,

Hope you all are cheerful and happy with festive December. I cannot believe how fast this month is rolling by. I am planning for a picnic on Christmas day. Stay tuned to read about it. I am sharing Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara Black review today and hope you pretties like it. Eyes are the first attraction for me. I am very picky about mascaras I don’t use them in a regular basis. Let’s see if this product took my eye-spy game up.


Price: Bought it in store for Rs 325, Priced at Rs 276 in Amazon

What Maybelline claims about the product:

Get dramatically long, curly lashes that make you feel wide-eyed and confident with the new Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara. Just one sweep with the mascara wand helps you get lashes that have spectacular volume and thickness.

The Hypercurl formula in the mascara works to achieve a dual effect: it instantly builds 3 times the volume in your lashes and helps curl them, giving you thick, curly lashes that look ultra-glam. The product also has a special curl-lock formula that defines and locks in the curliness of your lashes for up to 18 hours.



My Take on Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara Black:

Packaging: This mascara comes a catchy packaging. The color coordination of black and pink just works perfectly for the rotate and open chubby tube. The wand inside is attached to the cap of the tube. Overall, the mascara is light weight and travel friendly.


Consistency: The consistency of the mascara is creamy. I have noticed that that once applied on my lashes the mascara dries up pretty fast. The consistency as such keeps the mascara in place without any smudge or crumble.



As I said earlier, mascara is something I buy very rarely so I become very choosy while picking them. I like products which will give at-least 3 years of shelf life. Hence, when I came across this one I tried it on my eyelashes. The formula is non-clumpy with 1 application and it did not make my eyes watery, hence I was happy with the initial test and bought it. I love the volume and lengthening effect on my eyelash. It is water proof and stays put all day (typically 9+ hours) if I wear it to office.


However, when I apply the mascara for more than once it clumps and feels heavy on my eyelashes. Also, I did not notice any dramatic curling effect on my eyelashes so the claim of curling is not true. However, I have used it while getting ready for Karwachouth and loved the way it made my lashes look. My lashes looked voluminous after using this mascara and I did not feel like using falsies.

This mascara can be removed using a makeup removing oil or coconut oil. While cleaning it with a mild cleanser leaves out some residues.  Definitely a good budget buy mascara which delivers on volume and stays flawlessly till removed.
