I’m currently very tired post gig last night. I’m regretting changing my day off but I’m sure a 5 day weekend is better than having today off.
This is a review I’ve been meaning to write for a while. I’ve mentioned this mascara in numerous posts on the blog and it’s been a firm high street favourite of mine for almost 6 years!
It’s the Maybelline Colossal Volume in 100% black. I’m a mascara junkie. I love the stuff and I’m always after the next amazing mascara for full volume lashes and love trying new ones. I always come back to Colossal Volume though.
I love the bright yellow packaging. It means it stands out easily in my ridiculously large stash of make up. The big bristle brush is my favourite type of brush. I prefer these as I find they grab onto the lashes and sseparate better. I find I love this mascara from the get go. It’s not one of those you need to leave open for a week. It also doesn’t dry up and the brush doesn’t get overloaded with product so you aren’t left with clumpy lashes. It lasts all day and doesn’t flake off leaving panda eyes!
My bare lashes
With one coat my lashes have natural volume, good separation and look black.
With two coats the volume starts to build up without clumping so my lashes look thicker. It adds some length and curl but on my lashes this mascara is best for volume. I do normally curl my lashes but for mascara reviews I don’t so you can see the full effect.
With three coats the lashes get thicker and still stay clump free.
I personally find four coats is the maximum my lashes can have. It leaves them with full volume and clump free. It’s quite a dramatic look but I love my mascara like this. I find anymore coats and the separation is lost.
I’ve recommended this mascara to so many people and most have fallen in love too. It really will always be a firm favourite for me. Have you tried it?
