the Colossal Volume Express Waterproof mascara -review

 As I mentioned in a haul post a while ago, I ran out of my Rocket mascara so I had to go and get myself a new one. I knew I wanted a waterproof version and I was very keen on trying another Maybelline mascara.

So I went to the drugstore and checked out every single waterproof mascara they had, and after a short elimination, i was left deciding between the Rocket and the Colossal Volume one. My friend suggested that as a »beauty blogger« I was practically obliged to try something new so I decided to go with this one.

 This mascara comes with a rather big wand with a lot of bristles. It was the wand that actually got me interested in this one (besides the mention of a colossal volume –I mean who doesn't want that?).

 The formula is initially quite liquid –which I really like. The wand doesn't pick up too much product, which helps you control the amount of product that you apply to the lashes and the way it shapes them.

 I was quite surprised that you can achieve a really voluminous look as well as a very natural clean look with this mascara. You just have to be careful with how you apply it.

 The biggest downside is that after 5/6 hours, the formula kind of changes which causes the upper and lower lashes to start sticking together. But I only notice this problem when wearing lots of mascara on my upper and lower lashes. The problem is easily solved if you use a different mascara for your lower lashes.  Also, it does take a bit more time than I am used to, because it can start looking very clumpy and stuck together if you apply it fast and carelessly.

Overall, it is a good mascara, but when it runs out, I will probably go back to my beloved Rocket.
