Although the Maybelline Magnum Volum Express mascara (aka the Colossal Volume mascara) never did it for me, its updated version, the Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Super Film mascara may just change my mind about it. Packed in the same eye-catching yellow tubing, the bright red words on the Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Super Film mascara scream “Look at me!”. The mascara formula does exactly that to your lashes and I thought I’d share my thoughts on this Maybelline mascara in this review.
Unlike its previous version, opening Super Film was quite pleasant: there was no “collageny” smell. The smell was something that turned me off the original Maybelline Magnum Volum Express mascara. Sweeping the formula onto my lashes with the slightly curved wand, the first coat of Super Film didn’t impress me much. It was the second/third coat that really got me going wow. Volume and intensity is the name of the mascaras’s game. Beyond that, my lashes threatened to clump and look like a spider was doing gymnastics on my eyelids.
Removal of the Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Super Film mascara is quite a breeze. Thanks to its new formula, the mascara comes off easily with warm water. But I still prefer to remove my mascaras with eye make up remover and this mascara came off surprisingly easily without much hassle.
In a nutshell, I am liking the new Magnum Volum Express Super Film mascara. I might just get it because I’ve yet to find my holy grail of volume mascaras and will keep doing reviews until I find one. But, in the meantime, if you’ve seen the number of mascaras I have inside my makeup bag, you might want to try and dissuade me from buying anymore to add to that collection.
