Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara Smoky Lash

Whenever I go for a drug store mascara I always opt for either L'Oreal or Maybelline. I have tried a few Rimmel and Maxfactor ones but just didn't get along with them. I saw a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug on Maybelline products and thought I would snap up a couple of these!

There are already some Colossal Volume mascara's out there but what drew me to this one was it says it has a black kohl effect which should help give eyes a smoky eye look. It also claims to not clump. The packaging is a super bright yellow which doesn't make it look like a high brand but it is easy to find in amongst all your make up.

I love big bristly brushes and as much as I love Benefit's They're Real I still can't get on board with the brush! I just find they are the best for adding volume to my lashes. 

These are my lashes with 2 coats of the mascara on. I really like the effect; it isn't a wet mascara, it drys really quickly which is good for me as 1. I tend to sneeze when applying mascara and 2. my eyelashes touch my skin as they get quite long so it doesn't leave any residue!

As with all mascara's you should throw them out every 3 months in my opinion as they are touching a very sensitive part of your body. But also as this is a drying mascara I think it may dry up quicker than other ones.

I would definitely recommend this mascara and I managed to pick up one for £4.99 and I've stocked up on a few extras. I would even go as far to say it's better than Benefit's They're Real. BAM.

Head down to Superdrug and pick one up!
