Maybelline Colossal - Volume Express Mascara Review



                                            Without Mascara              With Mascara

Mascara, Mascara, Mascara, I need more mascara. As you might know by now, I love me some mascara. I concentrate most of my make up on my eyes as that's what I like to highlight the most. I first bought the Maybelline Falsies mascara after several recommendations, I'm still on the fence about that mascara, but one thing that frustrated and disappointed me the most is that I couldn't use the mascara on my lower lashes, which is why I decided to go out and get the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara. 


They say
Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express has a collagen enriched formula, that loads lashes with up to 7x more gorgeous volume, conquers clumps with a mega brush. 




Ana says
At first when I used this mascara, I wasn't that thrilled by it, It does thicken my lashes but it takes several coatings to get the desired look I want. The Maybelline Colossal does adds some length to my lashes but nothing impressive. I tend to love mascaras that give me the most dramatic length and volume possible, but I have grown to love Colossal as it is nice to have a really natural enhancement to my eyes. I love how buildable the mascara is as you can do several coatings of  the Colossal whiteout it getting your lashes clumpy, because it takes a while before it dries.

The Maybelline Falsies vs Maybelline Colossal

The Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara 

Effect
As you can see from both pictures, they give the same length but the volume is a lot different. The falsies is more dramatic in thickness and more dark, where as the colossal is more subtle. 

Consistency/Usability 
The Maybelline Falsies mascara dries quicker than Colossal, which means you have to work really fast with coating your lashes. Whereas when using the Colossal mascara, you can take your time and build up on application. The colossal took 3 coats to reach the level of thickness as shown in the pictures above whereas the maybelline falsies took 2 coats.

I find that the Maybelline Falsies is very hard to use on my lower lashes, unlike the Colossal, which I can use on my lower lashes. Out of the two I would say Colossal is the winner for me.

Overall
If your looking for a mascara that can add a subtle and more natural volume to your eyes then you might love this mascara. The Colossal mascara is perfect for people who like to apply mascara at a pace they are comfortable with. You might not like Maybelline Colossal if you want a mascara that provides dramatic volume or length. If you love your mascaras that dry fast then you might want to leave this alone. Overall The Colossal is a decent mascara.

Dark and Lovely Moisture Plus Oil Moisturiser Cream Review


 I am always looking for products  to moisture my thirsty hair better. The Latest product I have tried is Dark and Lovely Moisture Plus Oil Moisture Cream. I used it up in three months and results of the product depended on technique. 

They Say
Dark and lovely hair care is an advanced combination of natural ingredients and body enhancing polymers that infuses and seals moisture into each strand for a soft and full finish. Enriched with Panthenol and Vitamin E, the deep conditioning formula found in Dark and Lovely Moisture Plus Oil Moisture Cream revitalises and moistures dry, damaged hair.  

Ana Says
The Dark and Lovely Moisture Cream is of a medium consistency and is quite oily in texture. When I use the cream by itself on dry hair, it does nothing for me and seems to just sit on the outside of my hair. But when I use it on my damp hair, it really does make a difference, my hair feels softer, shinier and more moisturised. 

The Pros
  •  Moisturises well on my damp hair 
  • Hair is more shiny
  • Affordable

The Cons
  • Does not work well on dry hair 
  • Very oily in texture, may leave your hair looking greasy 

Overall
If you have really dry, dull hair then you might want to try this out, but if you hate your hair feeling somewhat greasy, or looking too shiny you might want to skip this one.
