I have owned this mascara for a while now, and I’ve only worn it a couple of times. This came out last year, when Cover Girl’s Lash Blast mascara was on everyone’s minds and eyelashes. I honestly, do not like this mascara at all. There isn’t anything extremely bad about this mascara nor is there anything extremely amazing about it either. The brush is an actual brush – not made from plastic like Lash Blast and doesn’t have any weird smells.
The mascara itself doesn’t do much for my lashes, it clumps and my lashes stick together, even after I comb through them. It doesn’t effect the length or the volume of my lashes either. Whenever I use this, I always seem to get mascara on my lower and upper lids. I usually don’t have this problem with other mascaras, so this must be because the Colossal formula is pretty wet and streaky. I haven’t experienced any flaking, but I usually don’t have mascaras flaking on me anyway.
There are many better mascaras on the market that are just better than this one. Pass it up.
Right now, I’m in what I would call a testing phase. I’ve bought a lot of new face products over the past few weeks, including foundations and other products. I’m super excited about this, because I used to think that my skin didn’t work with foundations, because I kept breaking out, but so far I haven’t had any problem with my skin so far. All of my testing products are from the drugstore, and I’m quite impressed right now.
Here is a list of everything I’m working on right now:
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy:
Your Skin Liquid Foundation in Nude Beige
Truly Transulcent Loose Powder in Light/ Meduim
Forever Stay Pencil Eyeliner in Jade
Fast Fix Shadow Eye Base
Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
Dream Matte Pressed Powder
Dream Mousse Blush in Rose Petal
Mineral Power Finishing Veil
So far, I’m pretty pleased with some of the items. I was more than pleasantly surprised to learn that Maybelline makes foundations that actually match my skin perfectly. I also haven’t broken out from Maybelline yet either… so that is either because my skin works with the brand or the primer I use is doing a bang up job right now. Either way, I’m definitely pleased.
I can’t say much for the Sally Hansen products, because I don’t want to say one way or another because I may end up having to change my mind on the product. Right now I’m borderline on certain products, and it would be unfair to talk about them until I’m sure.
Otherwise, what would be the point?
I have been using this foundation for a few months now, and I am almost through with my first bottle. I started wearing this foundation because I wanted a liquid foundation that didn’t break my skin out, but I didn’t want to spend top dollar on something from Sephora or the MAC counter. So when CVS had a too good to pass up promotion on this foundation – I jumped on the chance to try it out. I lucked out on my color choice – 4 Nude was the first color I purchased, and fortunately it matched my skin perfectly. I have light-medium neutral skin, which is around 25 NC in MAC.
This liquid foundation is everything I could want right now in a foundie. It applies evenly over my skin, I dab it on with my Sonia Kashuk skunk brush (187 dupe) and I apply a light layer that gives me light coverage. The foundation can be built up to medium coverage with no caking. I always use my Monistat Anti Chafing Gel as my primer before using this product. So I never have to deal with break outs from this product. I highly recommend that you check this product out the next time you are looking for a decent and cheap liquid foundation. I’m sure you can mix this foundation in with your moisturizer for a great tinted moisturizer. The other good thing about this foundation is that it comes with 18 SPF. Which is always a good thing.
