In Detail Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara Review and My Experience
This comes in a lovely yellow-pink coloured Maybelline mascara packaging. The tube is bright yellow and the cap is metallic pink. The applicator is made in a spoon brush concept. The fibres or bristles are packed quite nearby in a spiral pattern. There are a few bristles which are too cool to stay in their place and rather seem wandering around. In a layman’s terms, the wand is curved and the bristles are quite dense and bushy.
Now they describe the product as “mascara that just takes you back, when beauty was pure, serene, and devoid of artifice” so Maybelline made it very clear that this mascara is not going to give us very dramatic lashes. Its meant for simple fluttering lashes without much artifacts of super long or spidery or super thick lashes. Which means this is suitable for ladies who want an everyday wear mascara which looks quite natural and at the same time defines the lashes a little bit.
The formula is quite thick and creamy. I have to say I find it a tad bit more thick than expected. Because of the spoon brush, it is in fact pretty easy to quote the lashes with this mascara. It usually dries up in a minute or two. I wore it on my curled lashes however I was really disappointed that it didn’t hold my curls well. My lashes became quite flat after 15-20 minutes. This did define the lashes and made them look more black and volumised (because of the product coating the lashes). There was also slight clumping. I normally apply 2-3 coats of mascara on my lashes but because I was too excited about this one, I went ahead and applied some 5 coats of it. This was indeed a mistake since the product kind of built up on my lashes and started flaking out which ultimately fell near my eyes like tiny black flakes. The flaking didn’t happen if I applied only 2 coats of it.
As claimed, the mascara is waterproof and stays put for almost an entire day which is pretty great. To remove this mascara, I needed a lot of patience. This does not come off easily. You need to have a good quality makeup remover and soak a cotton piece in it and keep it on your lashes for a couple of minutes and then gently rub off the mascara from lashes. It does not come out with ordinary makeup removers.
So overall, I guess this mascara would be great for college girls who are not looking for dramatic lashes. It gives a slight volume and thickness to the lashes without looking like you have too much product on. Also this is good for everyday regular use when you just want a natural look. As maybelline claimed, this is quite simple. My only complain would be the fact that it does not hold the curls well.

CONs of Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara
1. Does not hold the curl of the lashes at all.
2. Not a choice if you want long and curled out lashes.
1. Replace your mascara every 2-3 months because upon repeated use, their might be some bacterial build up. So replacing the mascara every 2-3 months ensures that we are staying clean and hygienic.
2. Always tightly screw the mascara after use. We don’t want it to dry because dry mascaras become flaky.
3. If your mascara wand becomes too clumped up after repeated use, take a while and clean it properly with a regular shampoo and water. Dry it properly and then put it back in the tube. Make sure to keep the mouth of the tube covered while cleaning the wand so that the mascara does not dry up.
4/5 (I know its not a super awesome mascara but it pretty much does what it claims. So it deserves good rating.)
