I received this limited edition Hello Kitty mascara from a blogger, Luna, several years ago. It's just way too cute and I couldn't force myself to use it until now.

Product Review: Maybelline Hello Kitty X Volum' Express Cat Eyes Mascara Waterproof

Where to purchase: sasa.com
Price: $12.80

Made in China

Description from the website: Maybelline VOLUM' EXPRESS Cat Eyes Mascara Waterproof performs wild lashes, lasting for 18 hours!
* Unique "V-shape" Cat Claw Brush: it deeply grabs lash root and lash in the eye corner!
* Instant volume gel: it performs wild lash look. Cake-free finish is resulted.
* Curling ingredients: it curls up lashes in 75 °U shape, lashing for 18 hours! Water resistant.
Thoughts: When I received this product, it was way too cute to use. It took me years to even open the package. The reason why I decided to use it now is because it'll go to waste just sitting pretty in my room. Even though I am doing a review of this product and it's hard to find the Hello Kitty version (limited edition), you can find the original mascara.
Here's a closer look of the packaging.
Here's a look at the wand. Actually, it's more a comb than a wand.

Now how it looks on me...
I love that the mascara keeps my lashes curled. It definitely shows on this picture.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I was not too sure about the comb. I'm so used to wand applicators that this took some practice. Once I got the hang of it, I fell in love. It's really easy to get from root to lashes. It's also very easy to do the bottom lashes, inner corners, and outer corners. Basically, the comb is very easy to grab every spot of your lashes. Secondly and since it's waterproof, it holds up my straight Asian lashes. That's one of the issues I have with non-waterproof mascaras. Once in awhile, I might get lucky with non-waterproof lashes that hold up my curls but it's very slim. Not only does it hold my curl, it thickens it and gives me volume. What more can you ask for a mascara that holds your curl and gives you volume!?!? Lastly and I'm sure this is what most people want to ask, yes it is hard to remove. It takes a lot of eye makeup remover.

Pros:
* Cute packaging.
* Comes with a comb; grabs every lashes.
* Holds curl.
* Gives volume.
* Waterproof.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.
* Limited edition; hard to find the Hello Kitty version.
* Takes effort to remove.

Would repurchase: Yes.
