Maybelline Colossal Mascara | Review

So, I'm back from my holidays now, had time to recover and get back into the 'work routine', and now I think it's about time to get back to blogging, I've missed it so much. Anyways, I decided to write about the one item I was using every day over my holidays (and long before it too but never mind) and I literally can't live without it now. Yes, as you can probably tell it's the Colossal mascara from Maybelline. I cannot believe I've never actually tried it before, it's been around for quite a while. It does everything it should to my lashes - lengthens them, gives them lots of volume and lasts all day (I usually keep it on for up to 12 hours and it looks brilliant even by the end of the day). The wand does smudge a bit under my bottom lashes but I started using the Falsies mascara on my bottom lashes now so it doesn't really bother me. It does clump a tiny bit too when I put a lot of coats on, but I'm usually able to fix it using the Rocket mascara's wand (I just realised how much of a Maybelline post it is hah). Anywho, I recommend this mascara 100% and I can't say I would re-purchase it since I already got a back up for when this one runs out. I'm yet to try They're Real, but for now I don't see the point in spending almost 20 quid on a mascara when this one works so well for pretty much a third of that price.

  16. This mascara sounds great! I've only tried the Maybelline falsies mascara however I find that they smudge really easily! Would you recommend the colossal over the falsies? :S

    1. I use both because Colossal doesn't work for my bottom lashes. I wouldn't recommend it over Falsies, but I can't really choose between them either. They're both great :) x

  22. I remember I tried this year ago when it first came out, and then never repurchased it. I really liked it though! May have to give Maybelline another go somewhen :)

    Great review! I know what it's like trying to adjust to the work routine again. This next week, getting up in the mornings will be HARD work. XD
