Maybelline Colossal Big Shot

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot -1

I’ve been using the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Volume Express Mascara for probably two months now! It has been my new everyday mascara.


Maybelline claims that the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara is their biggest shot of volume with only using one coat.


Benefits to this mascara are that the big shot brush and wavy bristles get close the root of the lashes. This allows the mascara and to create more volume.


The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara has always and forever will be my first choice mascara. I just haven’t been able to find a mascara that makes my lashes look that good. However, I do like to try different mascara’s and changing things up. The Maybelline Colossal Big Shot has been my daily mascara for the past few weeks.


I do love the fact that this mascara doesn’t smudge or flake my lashes at all. I find that one coat just isn’t enough to get the kind of volume I go for. I’m not a false lash wearer, so do need my mascara to be extremely volumising. 


Usually, I tend to use two or three coats of mascara, and this doesn’t clump my lashes at all… Which I was surprised about because especially with three coats many other mascaras made my lashes all clump up together and that’s not a cute look at all. My lashes were well separated and mascara’s dried really quickly.


I have actually been rather impressed. I always love Maybelline mascaras, in my pinioning Maybelline knows how to make great, affordable mascaras! Will it replace my beloved Lash Sensational? I don’t think so, but it is a great contender, they both are good in their own right. If you are looking for a budget-friendly mascara, that gives you good volume then this is worth checking out.

    I have actually never tried any of the Maybelline mascaras- I know, absolutely shocking! This sounds like a great mascara to start with though!
