Maybelline One by One Mascara Review

Mascara is my most essential beauty product because mascara (and an eyelash curler) really do open up my eyes. Whenever I want to go out wearing minimal make-up, I tend to at least wear mascara. Having short straight lashes is upsetting at times because it's absolutely aggravating to find the right mascara that will not flatten my curled lashes. 

I bought the Maybelline One by One Mascara half a year ago and have fallen in love with it since then. This is one of my favorite--if not favorite--mascaras of all time. I tend to find Maybelline mascaras extremely watery, which doesn't mix well with straight lashes. Surprisingly, the One by One mascara wasn't as watery as say, the Great Lash, but still not as dry as Covergirl's Lash Blast formula. When I first applied this, I wasn't that impressed. However, I don't know if perhaps the formula dried up a little, but the mascara worked wonders a week later. Does anybody else ever try a product the first time and have it grow on you later? Well, this happened to me. The mascara does not flatten my lashes and lengthens, separates, and volumizes lashes without clumping . In addition, IT DOESN'T SMUDGE!! Hallelujah. 

Although I do not have long, voluminous lashes, I do have a decent (not a lot though) amount of them. I'm not sure how this would perform for those with sparse lashes. 


The wand consists of rubber bristles that really get into every crevice between your lashes. I usually apply 2-3 coats of this and I'm ready to dart out the door.

What are your favorite mascaras?


  1. this mascara doesn't give my lashes volume :( but it is good for keeping your clashes separate and from not clumping (unless i put too many coats.) i don't have a favorite mascara at the moment, but this was my first favorite mascara :)

  2. ooo sounds intersting. and I hate a mascara that smudges, may have to try this out one day x
