Product Review: Maybelline Colossal Mascara
Some of you may remember, I was having mascara issues a while ago. A ton of people responded to help me find a better one, which shocked me! Someone suggested, as I said in my vlog, Maybelline Colossal and since I used it for about a week now, I thought I'd do a little review.
I like to think that I'm kind of a guru, but really, I have much to learn still. (Don't we all?) I went to school for cosmetology, graduated May 2010, and am licensed to work in a salon...in Ohio. Anyhow, in school, we studied hair, makeup, and skin, so I do know a little somethin'.
Moving on.. I've used Colossal for about a week now and let me just say it is leaps and bounds beyond Great Lash for sure. Which is a relief. Great Lash was clumpy and gloopy and made my lashes stick together and I'm pretty sure just weighed them down, which is the opposite of what I want. How did Maybelline get it so wrong with Great Lash and so right with Colossal?
So far, I really like Colossal! The brush is huge, which I'm not used to, but it really makes my lashes look super thick without sticking them together. The spider lash thing is not cute. It also lengthens them! I don't actually need this, as my lashes are pretty long, but I like looking like I have lashes on when I'm not actually wearing them. And don't even get me started on the Falsies mascara. Ew. I got it in glam black, by the way. I think it has a slight sheen look to it, which I like a lot. The classic black is like a matte finish and I think that makes your lashes look dry, not shiny and healthy
All around, I really like it. Except for maybe the brush, but I'm going to keep trying it! I've never used such a big brush with mascara so.. I need practice. I tend to get it on my eyelid and I've rarely done that in the past! But again, practice makes perfect. Right?
Do any of you use Maybelline Colossal mascara?
