The One-by-One Volum’ Express is a volumising mascara from Maybelline which promises ‘bold without the bulk.’ The mascara features a Lash Catcher wand that offers three bristles per lash, resulting in immediate clump-free volume, giving you full and beautiful lashes that will make heads turn.
I found the mascara easy to use and even after one coat I began to see a difference as my eyelashes became noticeably thicker and lengthened.
I tried the Black colour which is perfect for a dramatic look – which I achieved after just three coats. The mascara was slow to dry and as a result I was able to apply extra coats and cover each individual lash with ease to achieve my desired ‘False Lash’ effect.
In comparison to other mascaras I found the Lash Catcher wand to be very effective as my lashes were volumised and lengthened as well as separated, providing me with the perfect look for a night out.
My only criticism would be that the mascara was quick to smudge and the volumising effect was perhaps a bit too dramatic for everyday use.
However, overall I was very impressed by this mascara as it left me with remarkably thick lashes and its Lash Catcher wand was true to its word, allowing me to use several coats whilst still remaining clump-free. The volume and length you can achieve is incredible and with repeated coats you can achieve a truly striking look.
The mascara comes in a chunky red tube with turquoise writing. Black is the only colour available, but there is also a Waterproof version.
The mascara is priced at £8.49 which is fantastic value.
Overall score: 8/10.
The One-by-One Volum’ Express mascara is a brilliant volumising mascara which provides you with gorgeous thick and separated lashes, creating that stunning false lash effect. Ladies, with this mascara you’ll be throwing away those Eyelure Naturalites False Lashes!
