Review Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Warm welcome to all my new followers... Now, onto business!

I'm the kind of person that doesn't owe a lot of mascaras. I wear contacts so it's really important to be very hygienic with everything around my eyes. Therefore I don't use a mascara after its expiry date (6months from opening) and if you have 5 or 6 mascaras they will not be empty in that period of time - unless you like spider mascara. I usually have 2 mascaras that I'm loving at the moment in my stash, just to be sure that after 6 months they will be empty.

One of my current mascaras that I'm loving is the Maybelline Colossal, available in most drugstores for 10-15euros.

The yellow packaging really catches your eye. The brush itself is thicker than most brushes and contains lots of 'long' bristles. Curious to its effect (well, maybe not too much as this mascara has been reviewed a lot already)?

From left to right/top to bottom: normal lashes, curled lashes, one layer of mascara, two layers of mascara. And here's the full face effect:
This mascara offers you more length and some volume, I love its effect on my lashes and yet it is very natural, just the way I want it. It's very easy in application, just be careful not to apply too much on your lower lashes. I will definitely repurchase this one and recommend it to everyone.

Which are your favourite mascaras?

Deze mascara wil ik ook nog kopen als mijn Falsies op is :) Ik zou hem graag willen proberen!

die doet het bij jou goed zeg! bij mij staken ze recht vooruit (ik ben niet gezegend met redelijk goede wimpers helaas) :p xx

Hi :-) I'm a new follower and have enjoyed reading your older posts. I'd love to hear how you got on with the Trind products- have you noticed a difference in your nails?

This mascara looks good although it's not one I've tried. At the moment I have two mascaras by a Polish company called Editt Cosmetics that I use. They were both cheap but I like them :-)

Floor en Marjolein: echt een aanrader, hij zou beter zijn dan de Falsies - heb die zelf wel niet uitgeprobeerd

Tessa: ja, de wimperkruller is hier echt essentieel, anders is het een stuk minder (had je die ook gebruikt toen?) - ja, ik ben erg tevreden met mn wimpers, één v mn sterke punten!!

Laura: welcome :) and thanks for catching up on my posts, I'm still using the Trind products because they advise a 4-6weeks treatment and I'm at week 3 now I believe but I already see an improvement: chipping of my nails is almost gone and my undertone of my nails is changing from orange to pink but a full picture review will be up in a few weeks time

I don't know Editt, where did you get it?

Loeder said...

Evelien said...

Leuk dat te horen :D

Evelien said...
