The mascara everyone needs

The mascara everyone needs

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and have had a lovely weekend! Recently I’ve been trying out various different mascaras as I just couldn’t find that perfect mascara that does everything that you would want a mascara to achieve from lengthening your lashes, adding volume, not flaking or smudging etc. It was only until a few days ago when I tried out the Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara when my search for a perfect mascara was over!! For this weeks post, I thought I would share with you my love for this mascara by giving it a review if anyone is looking for a new, affordable mascara to try or if you are having the same struggle as I was! Trust me, everyone needs this mascara in their life! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

Before purchasing this mascara, I’d seen it advertised by other beauty influencers who all seemed to love this mascara. I have also tried and loved other Maybelline mascaras in the past such as their all time famous Lash Sensational Mascara so I thought I would give it a try! What appealed to me most about this mascara apart from the gorgeous gold packaging was the wand as I’m a huge fan of wands that have bristles rather than the plastic applicators as I find they are much more gentle and separate your lashes better. The wand also reminds me a bit of the TooFaced mascara wand which I was dying to try before I tried this.

Apart from how it looks, how the mascara actually performed was the thing that shocked me most. Despite all the good reviews I’d heard, I was surprised at how good this mascara really is! Although the wand isn’t curved, the design of the wand still manages to curl my lashes, separate them and add a lotta volume! The mascara is also nice and black which also helps to add volume. As I mentioned earlier, the bristles really help to separate each individual eyelash without clumping what so ever which to me is flipping amazing! Although one coat is enough, if you want to go ahead and apply more coats, it still doesn’t clump if you add more which is something some mascaras I have tried in the past do when you go to add more than one coat. I think this is due to the formula not being too wet which is another bonus!

I used to always have issues after a few hours of wearing a mascara with it smudging under my eyes or flaking but I noticed that this mascara doesn’t smudge as much on my bottom lashes and doesn’t flake so if you wear this mascara, you know your lashes are going to be good all day! I also found that this mascara kept my lashes curled all day and it looked virtually the same at the end of the day as it did when I first applied it in the morning! (I chose the ordinary version but Maybelline also do a waterproof version of this mascara.)

Overall, I think you can probably tell how much I’m obsessed with this mascara because there honestly isn’t anything negative to say about it which is rare for me to find in a mascara! I know I will definitely be repurchasing this mascara again and again because in my opinion, it’s pretty hard to beat for the price! I’m so pleased I gave it a try and I’d definitely recommend this mascara to anyone whatever your lashes!

Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this weeks post! Let me know if you have tried this mascara or give it a try as I’d love to know your thoughts on it also!?

Much Love, Amelia xx

    I haven’t tried this mascara yet but it sounds amazing! The one I’ve tried is the Maybeline False lash effect (I think that’s what it’s called. It’s the one in the purple packaging). Lovely post as always xx

      Yes, I hadn’t heard about it either until a few weeks ago when I saw it being advertised by other beauty bloggers/vloggers. I think Maybelline only released it a few months ago! Yes, it’s such a great and affordable mascara that I would definitely recommend! Let me know if you end up picking it up! Thanks for reading also lovely xx
