Mascara Review: Maybelline – the Magnum March 2, 2010

so i bought a new mascara. it’s Maybelline’s The Magnum Volum’ Express Mascara. 😀

And this is how my eyes look after 1 coat before and after application:

I curled my lashes with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler before application. When you see the word “express” on a mascara, it means it dries quickly. So, you have to hurry up with the application because once it dries and you apply another coat, the mascara will clump up your lashes. I guess with every new mascara you buy, you will have to practice applying before you get the knack of application.


The brush is a little too big for me especially for the lower lashes. But I LOVE how it turned out! 😀 My lashes are kinda long for an Asian so it’s not hard to curl and apply mascara. 😛 I always do only 1 coat of mascara (whatever brand of mascara I use). For this mascara, I like the volume it created. I’ll use this mascara on my upper lashes and try to use another mascara with a smaller brush for the lower lashes. 😛 I’ve been using this mascara for a while now and it works great and last the whole day for me. 😀


I use L’oreal’s Dermo-Expertise Gentle Eye Makeup remover. It is cheap and works great. The oil in the remover wipes out the waterproof mascara just fine. 🙂

i’m in Singapore. I think Magnum is the Asian version of the Collosal. You may have to get it online if you want it.
