Mascara Monday: Maybelline One by One Volum’ Express

That’s right, it’s another mascara from Maybelline. I seriously didn’t think anything could get better than that one coat wonder called The Falsies. Did One by One win me over?

Price: 5 out of 5
Packaging (brush wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What It Claims: “Exclusive lash by lash brush captures, coats and cleans ever single lash for the most refined volume root-to-tip. Instant clump-free volume. (per packaging)

The Truth: It’s another good mascara. But I am so over this same packaging and style. Get creative, Maybelline!

What I Loved About It: The wand makes for great separation.

What I Didn’t Like: It was flaky, yo.

Overall: I love Maybelline mascaras. You know I do. But they are getting to be quite redundant with the Volum’ Express line. Granted, I think that all of the ones that I have tried are pretty groovy but still. I really wish Maybelline would switch up the style here. You know…give us something different from Volum’ Express. As a consumer, I’m starting to think that they are tricking us with the different colors and names (Turbo, Falsises, Colossal, etc). So yes, I’d definitely like to see something new to drawing board as far as Volum’ Express goes, Maybelline.

But other than that…it’s a good mascara. While it is supposed to be a volumizing mascara, I find that it gave me pretty good length. The wand is great for separating. I mean, great! Even the smallest lashes will be able to get coated evenly with this one. I loves it. It also makes for a great build-able mascara. But you will run into flakiness.  I would rub my lashes and find it all. That’s no bueno.

Still a pretty decent lengthening macara. Even if it’s supposed to be for volume. It isn’t my favorite from Maybelline but it’s cool.

Bare Lashes

Lashes with 2 coats

Pretty good in the lengthening department, uh?

Would I recommend it?: I guess. I think of all of the Volum’ Express mascaras that I’ve tried, this one does the best in lengthening.

*yawn* Maybelline and their Volum’ Express mascaras are really starting to bore me. Am I the only one? Check out my video review here and let me know what you think.

    heeeyy great review! just one question tho-is it just me or is one of the 2 coats pics the same as the bare lash pic? or is that just for us to compare the two pics easier? thanks for the review! :)

      Oh shucks. I made boo boo. 😳 I updated the post. Sorry about that!

  • Sounds good :) I find most of my maybelline mascaras don’t do a lot volumnizing, but only lengthen my lashes. I want volume :(

  • so i guess i’ll be grabbing this when it’s time to replace falsies. i love finding new mascaras!

  • I didn’t believe that there was so much to talk about MASCARA. You really impressed me with your good job. Great Blog :)

    • Brittany

      Thank youuuuu!!

  • meh. i’m diggin the falsies mascara but i haven’t been too impressed with any of the recent drugstore releases… i wonder if this would do well with layering?

    • Brittany

      I would imagine that this + The Falsies would be pretty bangin’. I may try that with The Falsies Drama.

      • I LOVE layering this with the Falsies. It gives major drama…in a good way.

  • Kayla

    This mascara looks great. It definitely made your eyes POP! I love mascaras like that. I might have to put this on my mascara list 😉
    Happy Holidays, B!

    I have tried Colossal (I think I’m on my 7th bottle… ;]), Falsies, and Volum Express (only once or twice) and I have definately noticed a difference. Colossal is pretty much my favorite mascara ever.

  • Brittany

    Hi B! lol we have the same name :) The mascara looks gorgeous on you. I just bought this mascara and I LOVE it!!! Have a faboo day! 😀

    • Brittany

      Yeah for Brittany’s!

  • Ana

    Great review!

    I was wondering. Out of colossal, the falsies, this one, and pulse perfection, which one would you reccomend? I have med legnth and volume lashes, that don’t curl very well.

    Thanks so much again!

    • Brittany

      The Falsies!

  • JP

    I like the One By One but there’s a very bad odor (and I just bought it). Has anyone else noticed this?

    • Brittany

      Noooo, mine doesn’t stink.

      • JP

        mine smells like old vinegar. It’s only a week old… it’s overwhelming!

  • Tane’

    No good it has no volume no length and it took me and my sister eye lashes out I have about 5 eye lashes now I thought I was going crazy until I ask my sister if the thought they were taking her lashes out

  • Brittney
