MAYBELLINE THE HYPER CURL EXPRESS VOLUME CAT EYES MASCARA
Lets start with the packaging, its much slimmer and sleeker looking than the original mascara. The biggest difference is that the wand is plastic and the bristles are a straight and wider like a comb. The wand is also much longer but its pretty light so its easy to hold and coat the lashes. The old wand was curved so it give the lashes a curl but this mascara is supposed to separates, add a curl, give volume to the lashes and individually coat them.
I have been using it in turn with a few other mascaras that I recently bought and with the original mascara, this way its easy to compare and see the difference. The first thing is that I can get right to the roots and really coat all the lashes with the mascara. I usually any way curl my lashes with a lash curler but I really didn't notice a big difference, I know its suppose to give a curl to the lashes but I didn't really get that. The mascara really did separate and gave them length, making them look fuller, it looked like had a lot of lashes. My lashes didn't feel heavy or flat and didn't feel uncomfortable. You do have to be a bit careful when holding the wand close to the lashes because it does prick a bit if your not careful because the bristles are plastic and much harder than the original.
Overall a relatively good mascara but I don't exactly see the cat eye effect and it doesn't last 18 hours but it will last till you get home. The lashes didn't drop through the day so basically it didn't keep the shape and lasted long enough. Taking the mascara off isn't difficult even though its waterproof. it doesn't flake when your taking it off which is always a plus.
I like this mascara but I prefer the original mascara, it curled my lashes and made my eyes pop and the best part I got so much compliments whenever I wore the original mascara. I use this mainly during the day so its fine. I would recommend it because it was one of the best mascara's to coat the lashes well with the mascara.
