I have been using the Maybelline New York magnum barbie mascara for quite a long time now. On a daily basis, I am someone who prefers using a good mascara over eyeliner and kohl. Because my eyelashes pretty much look non-existent and they are very thin. So a good mascara helps me in bringing some life back to my eyes. I am sure every girl loves trying out mascaras from Maybelline because of the quality that they come in. And the magnum barbie mascara claims to give a Barbie-like lashes effect. Let’s see how it fares!

Direction of Use

Use an eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. Then apply two coats of the magnum barbie mascara. It dries up quickly so you have to work fast. And if more than two coats are applied it clumps up the eyelashes which definitely doesn’t look natural.

I fell in love with its packaging! The yellow bottle with pink shiny cap- the combo looks cute and eye-catching! The wand has soft bristles and it is slightly curved.

My Eye Lashes Type

Straight, thin, less volume

Color and Texture

This mascara only comes in one color which is jet black. Two coats of this mascara are enough to show up on lashes. The texture of it is neither too runny nor too thick. It is somewhere medium and slightly on the thicker side.

Sometimes the mascara goes into my eyes which obviously irritates my eyes. So I don’t go overboard with the application. Mostly I am doing only one coat of this. But here in the pictures, I have applied 2 coats to show how it looks on the lashes.

Is It Waterproof or Water Resistant?

It is both water resistant and waterproof. Which I liked the most! So it can easily survive in swimming pools and rains. Also if you get teary it doesn’t melt or smudge around the eyes.

Staying Power

On me, it lasts through the entire day! It doesn’t need a reapplication either. But it needs a really good makeup remover to remove it completely.

I was struggling with taking selfies with this on my lashes. As it doesn’t show up in selfies. Mostly due to my eyelashes growing straight and down. So I took photos in a certain angle to capture the look.

Honestly, if you have lashes like mine then you may wanna try out a different mascara like the one which curls and also adds volume to the lashes. This definitely adds a good amount volume but it doesn’t curl. That is if you have your eyelashes growing straight and down like mine.

But if your lashes are naturally curled or they don’t grow straight then you will definitely love this for both daily wear and party wear!

Anyways I like the Lakme eyeconic curling mascara more than this which curls my lashes, makes them stay curled for a very long time also adding volume!

Pros of Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara

  • Adds volume to lashes
  • Jet black color
  • Comfortable application
  • Cute packaging
  • Decent price
  • Water resistant
  • Waterproof
  • Lasts all day long
  • Perfect for both day and night time

Cons of Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara

  • Not for straight and down growing lashes as it does not curl them
  • Clumps up with more than 2 coats
  • Dries up too quickly
  • Little tough to remove

Final Verdict

I like it!
Overall, the magnum mascara from Maybelline is a good everyday wear mascara for me and for those who have lashes like mine- straight and thin. As it adds a good amount of volume. But to curl your straight lashes you need to use an eyelash curler. And for those of you with naturally curled lashes, this will look very beautiful on you! I like how it adds more life to my eyes and makes it look wide and awake. 🙂

    What I love in your reviews, you share all the pros and cons in details. I have used the eyeconic one. Will try this out for sure. But I also have thin and down-going lashes 😦

  2. Lavern Moore says:

    This is a mascara that I could see myself using, at least to try. Not all mascara ms are the same but I’m currently using another Maybelline mascara that I really like.

  3. Erica (The Prepping Wife) says:

    I feel like I’ve been on the hunt for a good mascara for my entire life. Lol. I’m going to try this and see if it is better than the one in my makeup bag currently. Thanks for such a thorough review! This isn’t one I’ve seen before, as I’d remember the bright packaging. It is definitely eye catching and memorable.

  4. Joanna K. says:

    Snehal, with the mascara on, you look like a movie star. I’m not into make-up, however, on a special occassion I would put on lipstick and mascara. Maybe it’s Maybelline!

    This is one makeup product that is never in short supply in my wife’s makeup bag. Now I know why.

  6. Mayuri Patel says:

    The last time I used mascara was for my wedding which is about 36 years ago. Not a make up person but will surely recommend this mascara to my daughter.
