There are certain gadgets that men just dont understand. An Eyelash Curler is one of them. I remember reading in cosmo once, how 5 guys were shown an eyelash curler and made to guess what it was. One of them answered “A torture machine to pull out nails” …
I for one, am a devout torture machine user. I just think it makes SO much of a difference to how your mascara looks. Hence, Maybelline’s Hyper Curl Mascara got me really curious- a mascara that can do the job of an eyelash curler. Interesting…
It has this slightly banana shaped bent wand. I am guessing that is what facilitates the curling!
I actually really liked this mascara- it gave a definite lift and slight curl to my eyelashes. My lashes are really poker straight, so anything that can lift them and get em all curvy is a big plus for me ! It may not be as effective as an eyelash curler, but it does a pretty good job and it lengthens the lashs as well! Also it doesn’t feel crunchy or excessively stiff on your eyes nor excessively gloopy so thats a bonus.It lasts the entire day, withstands water and gives you a very natural looking lash – so its great for everyday wear .
Where it did lack is in the volume department. It gives you some volume, but not as much as the Maybelline Collosal Volume Express one which is my HG mascara. I have like puny little lashes, i feel like those games you play as kids- you know the ‘You have a wish’ referring to a fallen eyelash – are just evil. It makes kids wish for more eyelashes to fall and then they grow up and have puny lashes like mine. Hmph. Anyway , so yes ..not very good in the volume department. Also i wish they had a non waterproof version of this…i just dont like wearing waterproof mascara everyday since its so hard to take off. Also – Had the wand been slightly more tapered towards the end, it would be much easier to coat the inner lashes.
Will I repurchase: I might.
Price: Rs 180/-
Recommendation: Hyper Curl will give you a pretty curl and lift to your lashes, along with some volume . It definitely does not match up to the volume of Maybelline Collosal , but if you have straightish lashes, and are looking for a fluttery curled lash effect for everyday wear , you will really like this specially at the price it retails for. If you need intense volume on the other hand, this may not be for you.
