Ok, I don’t throw this statement around lightly, but the new Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara is a bloom’in good mascara!!
If you are a regular around this parts you will know I am a waterproof mascara junkie! I have super straight lashes. I rarely find a non waterproof formula that holds a curl for me. Now, I am definitely not a brand snob. One of my faves is a Catrice one I talk about here.
The Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago and I will be honest, I wasn’t expecting to like it. I used it for the first time going to the gym. Yep, I sometimes wear mascara to the gym, I have to walk to it and I like to look somewhat awake while doing it ha. From the first application, I was super impressed!
The wand is quite large and does hold alot of product. It doesn’t apply as clumpy as you would assume though. One layer will give you some length and a decent amount of volume. It does build up really nicely, without too much clumping. And I find it doesn’t flake majorly or anything throughout the day.
It also holds a curl really nicely. This is the part that sells it for me! It gives length, volume and curl! Music to my very picky mascara ears 🙂
I will say I don’t tend to use it on my bottom lashes. I am that girl who has a designated bottom lash mascara. I use Mac Extended Play (review here).
Overall though, it’s a really great mascara. If you’re not super oily and clumsy like me, it might work as a bottom lash mascara for you aswell!
You can find the Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara mascara in store from Boots now or online here. It will set you back €11.99.
Have you tried it?
