Official Mascara Correspondent: Maybelline Pumped Up! Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

mascara2Just in time for your Memorial Day lash looks, Official Mascara Correspondent Ashleigh Ciucci’s review of Maybelline Pumped Up! Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. Here, her review.

pumped-up_pack-shotI first tried this mascara on a model during Fashion Week and loved how it paid off for the lights, camera and action. And let me just say, it doesn’t disappoint in real life. The brush is a super-fat football shape with soft bristles that hold a ton of the formula. One coat deposits a wealth of product leading to major volume. You have to be careful not to overwork it or else you’ll get clumps. Because of this, I was conservative with my second coat and wiped off much of the product from the wand first…Could this be because this mazzie is a one-coat-wonder?

The second day I wore this mascara I spent a little more time with my first application and found that I loved the way my lashes looked sans a second coat. In the afternoon my lashes were still going strong and hadn’t faded in any way. Could this be the TRUE one-coat-wonder?! Because the formula is so inky, I needed eye makeup remover as well as soap and water to remove, but it’s such an amazing mascara that I didn’t care.

Buy this one! Right now!
