MakeUp Academy Mega Volume Mascara Review

Mega Volume Mascara by Makeup Academy sounds like a bargain. It’s £3 from the MUA website for from your closest Superdrug store.

The product itself is not bad. It goes on smoothly and separates your lashes. A couple of coats does make your lashes stand out.

However, it does not give you mega volume, as you can see from the above picture. So not so great.

Now for the thing that makes it even worse.

It’s less than half full. Having emailed customer service I was treated like an idiot, then told it was supposed to be this way. I was told it gives the ‘product room to move’. Now I knew straight away this wasn’t going to be good for the mascara and I was right.

In less than two weeks of having it, it started getting dry and clumpy. I do not pump my mascara. Just the sheer amount of air in the tube started to dry it out. Now, it’s pretty much useless.

So would I recommend this. Not at all. It doesn’t give you mega volume. In fact it gave me no volume at all. Then it dried up in less than two weeks. All in all this is a dreadful mascara. Avoid it.
