Product Review: Maybelline One by One Volum Express

So I picked up this mascara after a glowing review from TiffanyD on youtube. I was more than pleased with my CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion but I wanted to try something new and my current tube was getting "dry" so I was getting some flakes on my cheeks by mid afternoon. This mascara really has a great formula...not too wet...not too dry. No flakes, great seperation, nice dark color, great volume and length - I'm pleased with it. I like the brush too, its a synthetic brush with plastic bristles that isn't quite as thick and sturdy as the Covergirl brush but it really glides through the lashes to create definition. The price was approx $6. The ONLY downside is the ugly, Ugly, UGLY packaging. I know I ranted about the ugly lashblast orange tubes but at least that is a color found in nature, this tube is neon coral with a bright teal band under the cap and matching teal writing. Why oh why does maybelline have such ugly packaging? I don't need fancy or chic packaging to have a great product but it does make it slightly more appealing. And yes I realize you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and it should always be whats on the inside that counts. For $6 I'd be okay with just plain packaging without ugly colors or writing all over the tube. It is a great product. I would buy it again. I just wish Maybelline would have a little makeover with some of their products because it's not as appealing as the actual formula of the makeup.


  1. I've been failing at finding a good drug store mascara. I would prefer to not pay for my pricey favorite and will have to keep this one in mind. It will be awhile tho- I just ordered Diorshow. :)

  2. I agree with Ashley...I think Diorshow is the best NON-drug store mascara...but for drugstore I like
