I am back with another review this week which is a makeup must have- a mascara! Your eye makeup is incomplete unless your lashes are at least once brushed by this magic wand. While doing eye makeup, mascara is unmissable, you can let go off the liner for once but not the mascara. It opens up the eyes and brightens up the face. In this post, I will be reviewing the Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara. I have been using this for over a month now and I am quite impressed by the product.
I am in love with the packaging! Going by the name the packaging obviously has to look bright and cute akin a barbie. It comes in a bright yellow tube with a glossy pink cap. The cap is airtight and hence, leak proof. The product is priced at Rs. 399.
It has a curvy wand with dense bristles. The curve enables the wand to cover up even the tiniest of lashes and the dense bristles help in building volume. The mascara adds great length to the lashes and gives a considerable volume. The mascara is available in only one colour- Jet Black and has a creamy texture. It dries super fast and clumps the lashes if more than two coats are applied. The application is a bit messy as it leaves black speckles on the eyelids and below the waterline.
As per the claims, the product is waterproof and stays for long. It does not come off easily and is almost impossible to remove without an oil based cleanser. You require a good oil-based cleanser to get this off your lashes (I personally use coconut oil to remove my makeup and it comes off easily).
