I’ll start with what Maybelline claims for this Mascara

  1. Curly Fix Formula curls up the lashes to 75º, giving you lusciously curly eyes’
  2. Gives expressive and lengthy lashes for up to 18 hours
  3. Adds instant drama to the eyes
  4. Smudgeproof and Waterproof


Maybelline has shown its quirky and experimental self by following a metallic pink and black colour coordination for its Hypercurl Volume Express Mascara (Waterproof). I keep repeating waterproof since the product has two variants, one the waterproof one and the other which isn’t. Coming back to the packaging and looks, the mascara wand is pretty thick and has a slight curve which enables your lashes to curl upwards giving them a voluminous look.

  • Best for daily use, be it your college or office.

  • It feels light on lashes in comparison to many other mascaras that make your lashes feel heavy.
  • The curl stays for 5-7 hours easily.
  • There’s no fight when it comes to removing it. Take a few drops of makeup remover or coconut oil on a cotton and use it to remove your mascara gently. (Quick Tip- Do not rub it off roughly)
  • It does wonder when teamed up with an eyelash curler.

Scope of Betterment

  • Since the brush is fat, application on lower lashes and inner corners becomes a little difficult. The brush could, therefore, have been a little less thick.
  • Multiple coats with this one isn’t a great idea. It clumps if you apply more than twice.
