A perfectly sexy mess
The new Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara is bold and creates chaotic volume that’s perfect for a sexy mess. Its unique teaser brush allows you to create two different looks, bold and extreme volume by swiping up through the lashes for instant daring charge or create total lash chaos by teasing them with the inclined tip across each lash. Its big volume formula allows for quick buildablility, making it easier to tease the lashes for a not-so-perfect look. Although this clumpy look may not be for everyone, it’s been seen all over the fashion runways, including Nanette Lepore’s F/W 15 NYFS and a must-try for summer. Your lashes will instantly look sexier and those imperfections are perfect for those times when you want to be a little chaotic.
Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara comes with a “teaser brush” that features a straightly larger brush with a slight curve at the head. The bristles are fairly close together which helps to separate and plump the lashes, while providing a slightly sexy mess. You can keep the brush horizontal and swipe up for volume, or turn it vertically and swipe up for a more disorganized and clumpy look. It has the perfect, not too wet and not too dry formula, so you’re able to use it right away. It has a lightweight, never crunchy or heavy texture that doesn’t seem to flake or smudge throughout the day. Although it does dry fairly quickly, it still gives you enough time to comb through each lash and add several coats. It glides on effortlessly and helps to coat each lash with extremely black and intense colour.
Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara does a wonderful job at texturizing the lashes and provides mega volume at the roots. It also seems to add a little length, although nothing too extreme. It stretches and grabs each lash giving them an almost doll eye, false lash effect. Although the large brush picks up a ton of products and saturates your lashes with product, you’ll still need several coats to achieve that sexy messy look. The larger brush is a little harder to work with on the bottom lashes, but I absolutely love the way it added volume to my short and thin lashes. If you use the tip of the brush as a teaser, you can really achieve an untidy look, otherwise just using it as a traditional mascara, helps to add thickness and fullness to each lash.
Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara reminds me a lot of the L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara due to the fact that it gives you an almost clumpy, spidery look to the lashes. This again is probably not suitable for everyday activities, but it’s a fun, unusual edgy nighttime look. If you would have asked me if I like this look a year ago, I would have said heck no, but the more I experiment with this clumpy look, the more I love it. I’m kinda obsessed with the thick, bold and messy lash look right now. I also love that you can achieve several different looks, depending on how you hold the brush, it’s like a 2-in-1 mascara. It retails for $8.99.
