Ok guys, I know I said I was on a spending ban but I couldn't help myself when I found this at my local walmart - FINALLY in waterproof. Ever since this mascara came out I have been on the hunt for it in waterproof but it didn't exist in any stores around here.
This post is going to be about my first impression with this mascara.
I have only used it once but from that experience I feel totally ripped off. This mascara is so bad. Honestly wtf. For the longest time I used the Volum' Express in waterproof and I swore by it.
Then I tried the XXL Pro in waterproof and thought that was absolute crap.
So I went back to Volum' Express. About 2 months ago I wanted something that was not so clumpy so I tried 2 different AVON ones.... I don't know why I bothered.
So I went to the store to get my trusty mascara when I saw the Colossal. I have heard that it is a pretty good mascara so I thought I would give it a try since my current mascara did 3X the volume and clumped and colossal claimed to be 9X.
The Colossal impressed me a LOT!! I have been hooked since! However I saw a commercial for maybellines newest mascara - The Falsies - and thought it was kind of silly but when I saw it again I felt desprate to own it.
So to do a real comparisson and really have a good first impression I applied the falsies to one eye and the colossal to the other.
These are the results:
The Colossal (2 coats, no spreading out lashes)
The Falsies (2 coats, no spreading out lashes)
Do you see that clumping?!! The falsies claim: "The Falsies Mascara is designed to give the appearance of no gaps and spaces. In a wink, lashes you didn’t even know you had look visibly thickened!" I think not. This mascara is extremly wet as well and the "spoon" shape of the wand makes application harder because of the shape of my eyes. I just found that I got mascara all over my lid.
I am going to give this mascara a few more goes and will write a review later.
Let me know if you have tried this and what you think!
