Another Tube, Another Day....

Yep, that’s right…I still am convinced that there is the perfect mascara out there for less than $10 a tube. I recently picked up a tube of Maybelline’s Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara with Collagen. Now, it has to be said that I almost did not buy this tube due to its unfortunate combo of colors (purple + yellow = boo hiss), but fought my stereotype and took it home with me. The first two uses I was sure that I had grabbed another failure but the third time was a charm.

It glides on very nicely and provides great coverage. I like it for my everyday use mascara. For work it is fabulous. I also liked that it had an actual brush versus these crazy plastic things all over the market. This mascara is however, not so good for watching movies that make you cry. I think I laughed so hard that I cried recently, and this mascara was literally running down my face. Not so hot. Also, for going out, I would opt for another choice. I think you would need to brush on about three coats to get the desired look or what they advertise.

On a scale of 1-10 I would give this guy a 7. Don't worry...I still have three tubes to review at home...I have a bit of an addiction, yes I know....

Ok, being Lyndsy's mom, I too am a mascara finatic (where do you think she got it from).

I too am tired of paying $20+ for a tube that dries out quickly.

I bought a few to try and one I really like that you put on white first and then follow it with black is also a Maybelline product. The Intense XXL, give her a try ladies.
