I usually have success with any Maybelline mascara that I purchase, but the "Volum' Express The Mega Plush Mascara" was unfortunately the exception. I use this only as a daily mascara, not for evening. It separates my lashes very well, but only lightly coats them. As far as volume goes, there isn't much. I typically could deal with any of these issues, but it is also extremely difficult to remove, which is a deal-breaker for me. However, I LOVE "Great Lash Lots of Lashes" and "Volum' Express One-by-One!"
