Maybelline New York!! - my haul for the day



The hubby dated me out today to go 1U shopping. I jumped at the opportunity because i totally needed some retail therapy to ease my monday blues. kekeke.....

I was at Watsons and I noticed Maybelline giving out a FREE Lipstick with any purchase above RM50. And then i saw the Volum Express Mascara that I wanted......plus the new Eyestudio pallete that I've been meaning to try. I thought...why not! since id be getting a free lipstick anyway! So yey...
I'm back with these 3 items.

Though the banner showed that the Free lippy is the Moisture Extreme....But they gave me the Watershine 3D color pearl. In which i delightedly received cos i've always love the Watershine range. I did not ask to choose the color, am not sure if i am allowed to but i like the one the counter lady gave me, which is the color #21 Red bejewelled.

I'm going to try them tomorrow!! Can't wait to try these.
But you know what, in my haste, i forgot to check the color of my mascara....and only realized that i took BROWN instead of BLACK. oh well.......

Do you gals know that almost every single Taiwanese actress have a tube of Maybelline Volum Express??? I saw a make-up expert in this taiwanese beauty talk show that used them and also highly raved about them. They also raved about this Eyestudio pallet that i bought too. They used them for the make-up demo and boy does the make-over look awesome!

This Volum Express in pink text is an improved version of the similar mascara but in white text.
The talkshow raved about how this mascara automatically curls your lashes upwards plus adds the volume too. Which is what i need cos my lashes are stubbornly straight even after using lash curlers. I heard some of the celebs mention that they bought these mascara by the dozens for fear that it might be discontinued!! Seriously......is it THAT good??!! Well.....will find out the next few days!

i'm using volume express and i think it is not bad. very easy to remove, really adds volume, though i'm not sure whether it helps curl lashes or not. hmmm

what's different with those with pink text?

and i also grabbed the wrong tube, non-waterproof instead of waterproof :)

do review their eyecolor soon. i think its very affordable for 3 colors at that price. btw, i used the volume express, but they did not do me any justice....

the mascara is quite alright in terms of volumizing n lengthening
the only gripe i have is it smudges a bit >_<

jessie: hi jessie! i think the white text is for more volume, where else the pink text are more for the curls...but i find the pink text does increase the volume too. Though slightly lack in the lengthening effect.


prettybeautiful,心。葵, zeren: i will try to review soon hopefully! a bit bz lately....after a few application, my brief opinion is that it is good but i find the color abit light. Too soft to show so might need to swipe abit more. But thats on the color that i got...which is the gold one.

ping: you like it too? i quite like it...but not shouting about it...i still prefer the XXL that will give a WOW factor upon application. But this is good for daily use.
