Recently Influenster sent me a VoxBox with Maybelline goodies to test.  In case you didn't know, Maybelline is my favorite drugstore brand so I was thrilled to try these.  Below, you'll see a below and after using the Colossal Big Shot Mascara...

You can tell from the photos that the mascara clearly provides volume and length!  To get this look I had to use many coats, more so than other mascaras I've tried.  I think the brush was part of the problem because it didn't grip onto my lashes evenly.  However with a little wiggling and maneuvering, I think all of the lashes were coated.  The mascara is also long lasting, which sometimes is a good thing.  But in this case it didn't all, not even when I used makeup remover.  3 days later and I'm still feeling the remnants of the mascara.  I was not a huge fan of that either.

Aside from results, I'm a sucker for packaging.  I thought the gold tube was luxurious and fun!

Overall, the mascara was true to its word for providing volume, but I've tried better products.  I wouldn't purchase this again...but one of my favorite mascaras ever is Maybelline Falsies!
