Maybelline Pumped Up Mascara Review

After hearing a lot of Beauty bloggers and YouTubers talk about the new Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volume Express Mascara (longest name ever?) I wanted to try it out! A lot of positive things were said about it, but I'm super picky about mascaras. I've been looking for some more HG ones, so I thought I would give this one a go. 

The wand was pretty cool I thought, and the packaging is your standard, bulky, tube that is how most Maybelline Mascaras are. 

The wand is pretty big, but I liked how the bristles aren't plastic. 

My lashes with no mascara. 

One coat on the top. 

Two coats. 

Three coats on top, one on bottom. 

My overall thoughts-
-I liked the formula of this. Wasn't too wet or too dry.
-I didn't mine the large wand, but I did make a mess on my too lash line. 
-This mascara gave my lashes pretty good volume, but not good length. Now I know I have super long lashes already, but some mascara give me crazy length, which is what I look for in a mascara and this one didn't work for me. 

-Here is this mascara compared to my all time favorite Loreal Telescopic. You can see how much more length and volume the Loreal one gives me. From top to the bottom of my lashes are a lot thicker with this one. 

I am not saying this maybelline one is bad by any means, it just didn't work for my lashes. I can however, see why so many people like it. 

Have you tried the Maybelline Pumped Up mascara before? If so, leave your thoughts on it in the comments! 


  1. I've bought this but haven't tried it yet. The loreal telescopic looks great and I'll definitely be trying that one

  2. I was wondering if this was a good mascara. I don't think I've used a Maybelline mascara before, but that L'Oréal mascara makes your lashes look amazing!

    1. Thanks Pilar!! If I was going recommned any mascara by maybelline it would be the falsies one!

  3. Oh wow Ashley! Next to the L'Oreal it doesn't compare (so glad you did a side by side comparison). It's good but the L'Oreal is better. Excellent review!

    1. Thanks Kim! I think I will start doing the comparisons when I do mascara reviews!

  4. i hated this at first and then loved it. but yes, not as good as the telescopic. just LOVE that one.

    1. I do like using this one for layering though!
