Today’s post is Maybelline The Magnum Barbie Mascara Review,Demo,Photos
Overtime I have started loving Mascaras. It has turned out one of those products I reach out for most while doing natural or minimal makeup looks. Wearing Mascara is that one crucial step that adds dimension to the entire look in a very subtle yet quintessential way. I am keen now to invest in a good quality lash curler to add lift and curl to my eyelashes.Personally I am not a huge fan of waterproof mascaras as that would mean struggling removing it by the end of that day . Over period of time I have figured out way how to deal with water proof mascara too.
Whenever we talk about good mascara, Doll or Barbie lashes is the visual that flashes in our mind. Well separated lashes, opened up the eyes in doe-size ,obviously less spidery is the barbie/doll look we want to achieve with Mascara. Wearing falsies is always an option but morning makeup does not offer that kind of time.So good mascara and eyelash curler can turn out pretty proficient in achieving that barbie doll lashes. With that background , Here is my review on Maybelline The Magnum Barbie Waterproof Mascara

So drop your false lashes and head over to the naturals! .Soft flex technology birstles make the lashes look thicker.It’s waterproof and weightless
New Maybelline The Magnum Barbie Waterproof Mascara is packaged in good size Flashy fuchsia yellow mascara packaging. Bright fuchsia pink accents against yellow backdrop looks girlish and corroborates with the Barbie theme.The wand has appropriate length and is easy to maneuver . Applicator brush is slightly curved & spatulated in the centre to embrace the natural curve of eyelashes. It picks up decent amount of the product and fine bristles on the brush transfers product neatly on lashes. Formula is jet black in color and dries up ultra fast reducing fear of smearing due to inadvertent flickering.
I have sparse short eyelashes that are relatively straight but not really defiant to curl. Currently I wear mascara after curling my lashes with QVS eyelash curler I bought from NewU. But for the purpose of demonstration in the post here I am just wearing Maybelline The Magnum Barbie Mascara. I get good volume and length with Maybelline Barbie Mascara in 4-5 coats. The brush applicator with two different length of fibers fans out my upper lashes while laying adequate amount of the product . Applying many layers of this formula can be little tricky as formula is relatively drier. It dries out really fast so layering too much of product can actually clump eyelashes.
I apply mascara in swift strokes brushing out the excess product and wiggling my lashes in between mostly towards the base.On my lower lash , I found brush size is slightly bigger though the moon mike curve in brush is embraced nicely by my lower lash. I get prominent lower lash in 2-3 coats. I can catch hold of baby lashes in the inner corners with the tip of the brush. I was able to give good lift and curl to my upper lash. Formulas able to hold the curl for up to 6 hours which is quite impressive.
This mascara does not flake off on me. I spotted a fibre thin 2-3 flakes after approximately 6 hours of wear. There was not crazy powdery residues in my under-eye region.This mascara is waterproof!! I have this habit of scratching my nose and rubbing my eyes as i get tired. Formula being dry refuse to tear down with water film. To test it further, I splashed my face with water over and over but Maybelline the Magnum Mascara refused to budge up.
Here is the quick demonstration
Formula is very gentle on my sensitive eyes. It neither irritated my eyes nor made them stiff hard. I am currently using L’oreal Paris Gentle Cleansing Milk to take out my Makeup. As it is waterproof mascara ,I remove it carefully choosing right makeup removing products.A gentle massage of the cleansing milk( any creamy cleanser) on eye lashes dissolve the waterproof formula. For complete removal then I take cotton pads soaked in L’oreal Paris Gentle Eye and Lip Makeup Remover. This combination works well and ensure complete removal. In My opinion creamy cleansers or bi-phased removers works best to dissolve waterproof mascara.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
Maybelline The Magnum Barbie Mascara does what it says!! It magnifies lashes by adding volume and length. The applicator brush fans out lashed adding definition and giving awake fresh look to eyes. Formula dries up fast which minimize the chances of smears during application especially on lower lash .This is worth mentioning when the size of the brush is not so conducive for smudge free application on lower lash. It is smudge resistant and waterproof. It spotted minimal flaking after about 6 hours of wear. Formula hold the curl decent long time. You have to use right kind of makeup removers to take out waterproof mascaras. It is a good budget option for mascara that works optimally good. I recommend checking this out if you have super-duper straight scanty short lashes as the fibre forming formula lengthens lashes by approx 3X!!
Beginners may find it difficult to use as the fast drying formula can end up looking spidery on multiple coats. On brighter side there is minimal smudges also. Having said that, I wish that Maybelline could have come up with better brush although I hold nothing against packaging,formula and longevity which I actually loved.Different Strokes for Different Folks!!
