So I was going to do a post about clothes Ive recently bought, then I found out my sister has lost my camera. I honestly chose a great time to start a blog. (Sarcasm intended) So instead I decided to review a couple of volume mascaras I have tried recently. Please comment if you have any on posts you would like me to do if you read this.
So the first mascara I am going to review is by Maybelline. Its the colossal volume express mascara as shown below.
Firstly I wasnt to keen on the appearance of this mascara as I thought the packaging looked cheap and unproffessional. I wouldnt have bought it myself as packaging like this gives me the impression it wont work as well for some reason, however my mum bought this for me so I thought I'd give it a go. Its reasonably priced at £7.19 and is currently on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots. The brush is just the kind of brush I love on a mascara big and bushy- I dont like to faff about with these little plastic things. Another thing I love about this mascara is you can achieve great coverage with just one coat. I personally love to gain a fake lash effect with my mascara and this is great for that as I usually find I have to sit and layer for ages and end up getting quite bored and giving up- with this mascara I only need a couple of coats. Overall I love this mascara far more than I ever thought i would and I would deffinately recommend it. The only downside of the product is the fact i did get a little masacara build up under my eyes, but i do rub my eyes a lot and compared to my other mascaras this one stays on like a dream!
The next mascara I chose to review is the Bourjois volume clubbing ultra black.
I bought this mascara for when Im going on a night out, the packaging gave me the impression it was fit for this purpose. I dont mind the packaging- Its not the best, but its not the worst. Its priced at £7.99 and is also currently 3 for 2 in Boots. I had high hopes for this mascara purely because its bourjois and they have some products which I love! However Im afraid to say I was dissapointed. The brush was ok but not as bushy as the previous mascaras brush and when I applied the mascara the brush clumped together. The mascara itself ended up looking quite messy and clumped. Later in the day i had a lot of excess mascara below my eyes and I was therefore left unimpressed. I wouldnt recommend this mascara and I will not be purchasing it again.
So there you go my first proper post! Please leave any feedback below!
