Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

Mascaras. Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine (well, along with foundation, candles & cheesy 90's kid's comedies, paha). I feel as though my makeup is never complete until I apply mascara. Even when I'm having a no-makeup day, I still need a quick coat of mazza to make myself feel better. I've tried far too many loads of mascaras, and in my opinion, high street offerings are just as good as, if not better than, some of the higher end ones from the likes of Benefit, Two Faced etc. My absolute all time favourite mascara, also from Maybelline, is their Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara. What an absolute stunner that bad boy is. To be fair, Maybelline really bring it when it comes to their whole makeup range in general, so I had high hopes for this one...


Let your lashes do the talking with incredible root-to-tip volume. Lash like a boss with Big Shot mascara.
Maybelline's The Colossal Big Shot Mascara* is part of The Colossal Mascara family, all of which claim to give volume from root to tip. The Big Shot comes housed in the usual Maybelline shaped packaging, with shiny gold and purple details. The brush is different to any others I've tried. It has the perfect girth (lol) and has wavy bristles which aim to catch every single lash. The formula is collagen enriched which makes it glide on with ease without being too gloopy and clumpy. It's super black, AKA a must for me in a mascara. None of this brown-black rubbish thank you very much. It also doesn't budge. I trialled this way back in the summer on a few super-hot days and it stuck around without leaving the panda eyes look underneath the lower lash line - a pet peeve of mine. One coat is enough with this too, which is great for those who don't have much time on a morning or, like myself, have toddlers swinging off each leg whilst you're trying to get ready. Wahhh. For a budget mascara it packs a pretty decent punch, although I definitely still prefer the Lash Sensational from Maybelline.

The Colossal Big Shot Mascara* retails at £7.99 and is available in Black & Waterproof Black.
