Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes

I know you’ve been asking after this review since I bought the mascara but I wanted to give it a good go before telling you what I thought. I spoke a little too quickly about the Benefit “They’re Real” so I’ve used this for a few days and feel I’m in a better position to really review it. 
First up, Application. The wand is curved which I would generally associate with a curling mascara but that’s not really what this is about. It creates lift but somehow sculpts the lashes outwards in a “cat eye” like effect. The wand is quite fine so it allows you to get right in to the root as well as catch the corner lashes. 
The formula is really wet which I usually don’t like but it’s not so bad in this product. Another big plus for me is it’s easy to remove at the end of the day and yet it still stays put all day.
I haven’t tried the original Colossal myself so I can’t compare the two but I can tell you I am really warming up to Maybelline as potentially the best drugstore mascara brand. This and “One by One” are now my top 2 for sure.
It’s available for just £5.99 from Superdrug now

    The original Colossal is AMAZING! I've tried it on friends with sparse eyelashes and it did wonders on theirs' as well as mine, so I definitely suggest trying it 🙂 x -Lerin
