One of the most common beauty questions I get asked is “What’s a good mascara?” so I always make sure I’m armed with an answer. I usually start off by saying it really all depends on their beauty budget. And then I follow this up by saying that when it comes to mascara, which you’re supposed to throw out after three months of use, expensive ones aren’t always your best bet. And for super affordable mascara that does the job and more, I always recommend Maybelline.
Not all mascaras are created equal. According to various beauty review communities from the world over, your good, basic mascara must be able to lengthen, volumize, curl your lashes, and of course, must be smudge-proof. One good option to try is Maybelline New York’s newly formulated HyperCurl Volum’ Express mascara.
Wondering why this mascara should be the latest addition to your basic face, lips, and eye makeup stash? It’s packed with lightweight volumizing black-gel formula, a breakthrough formulation that gives four times more volumized curl that reportedly won’t smudge for up to 24 hours (not that I had the chance to put that to the test, hehe), great for leaving a lasting impression during the day and making the most of your girls’ night out. Avoid annoying mascara marks on your eyelids (especially when it’s humid or raining!) with the most amped up lash curls possible.
Coupled with a pointy tip brush for easier and more precise application, this buildable black gel creates the most dramatic peepers without leaving smudges and irritating your eye area. It makes eyes come alive in just seconds, giving you a fresh, natural eye look perfect for daily use, taking you from day to night.
I’ve been using it for three months now—I figured I’d recommend this to you before I toss my three-month old tube. I snapped some photos (see below) for you to see how it looks on my lashes:
I don’t really like using eyelash curler, so I’m glad just applying this mascara is enough to curl my lashes.
Two to three swipes of mascara are all it takes to achieve falsie-level volume.
You won’t believe how affordable it is: At just P199, you can have stunning lashes all year round with the newly formulated HyperCurl Volum’ Express Mascara, and it won’t even cost you over P1,000 a year when you follow the hygienic rule of replacing it every three months. It’s available nationwide in all Maybelline counters.
