REVIEW: Maybelline One By One Volum' Express Mascara


Me on V-day!

Maybelline One By One Mascara in "Very Black"


"Exclusive lash catcher brush catches, coats and de-clumps every single lash for our most refined volume from root-to-tip" - Maybelline



Typically I hate every mascara I first try. The first time I tried this mascara I didn't like it because I made a lot of mess using it (i.e., mascara went all over my lid and I had to touch up my eyeshadow). However, the brush takes a little bit of time to get use to as it is rather flimsy/flexible. Once I got use to the flexibility of the wand, I absolutely loved the applicator brush! The "lash catcher" brush does just that, it seperates lashes very well and does not clump them together even with multiple coats of mascara. DO NOT wait between coats of mascara. Work on one eye before you move to the next and don't let the formula dry.

I love how this mascara gives me all three things I'm looking for in this mascara: length, volume, and seperation! The formula is shiny, like the "patent leather" look of Lash Stiletto. It also doesn't flake or smudge throughout the day and holds curl very well! This mascara definitely hit a home run for me. Still, I'm not sure if it beats out my love for Cover Girl Lash Blast yet, but I will continue to use it and let you all know!

UPDATE: Picked up a new tube of Cover Girl Lash Blast and it is still my HG mascara. This is still a nice mascara, but CG Lash Blast is still my number one!

2 coats of mascara...1 coat didn't look as clumpy, but I like my mascara on the thicker side

Have you tried Maybelline One By One Mascara?

  2. I tried it and did a review too, pretty good volume and I liked the brush, so it tapered and got thinner on the ends so it can get to the little hairs. Great review.

  7. Separation is not really what I look like in a mascara as I have sparse lashes already, but I've read on quite some blogs that it fails to provide length and volume... glad it works for you, now you make me want to try it anyway!

  14. May I have your brows, por favor? They are so perfect! My brows are so different & it's so difficult trying to get them to match. Luckily I have side bangs so I can cover the one LOL

  15. I tried this mascara after hearing about it from Makeup by Tiffany D. I really did not like this mascara. I found the mascara formula to be a little watery/runny. I thought I would try it several times thinking the mascara formula would become a little dryer. It never did. I ended up throwing the tube away. Cover Girl Lash Blast (orange tube) mascara along with some L'oreal mascaras are my "Holy Grail" mascaras.

  16. hi,
    you are really beautiful girl
    i think mauve-medium pink sheer lip glosses are very suitable for you.Nude or matte pale pink lips look old..
    i recommend lipfusion blush or estee lauder innocence color
