A Week of Makeup Reviews from A Newbie Make-Up Girl... Day 2

I have stayed away from mascara for years because (1) I want to avoid raccoon eye and (2) there was just too many to choose from. But when I decided to step my makeup game up, I figured that I would need to suck it up and learn about this stuff. I hit the CVS in search of a good mascara. At the recommendation of every beauty blogger in the word I tried Maybelline Great Lash...I had high hopes. Didn't work for me. I'm not knocking it. I really just think that most mascaras are geared toward women with thin straight lashes or short lashes. Either way, I have thick curly lashes. I mean curls that circle around 2x. lol So I needed a mascara that made my lashes longer and made them pop. After trying several that did not work I found the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express. OMG. If you have not heard of this stuff, GET FAMILIAR.

You need this in your life. I this stuff lengthens plums and curls. It has collagen. OMG!!! Porn star lashes here I come. No need for falsies with the mascara. How did I live without this? I seriously walk around the house in this stuff, doing random waiting for Fed-Ex. I am so serious.

Any of you make-up newbies, I strongly suggest that you get this. I got mine for $5.99 at Target. You cannot go wrong.

PS...No racoon eye.

Glad to hear that you discovered this AWESOME mascara. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara is the best. I have gotten all my girlfriends to buy this stuff and it rocks! I discovered this Mascara back in September and love it!

Like you I have a hard time finding mascara and stayed away from it for years, that was until I discovered this brand as well. KUDDOS!!!
