Maybelline - Volum' Express the Colossal Cat Eyes

Having tried Great Lash and being disappointed, I wasn't expecting much from Maybelline's the Colossal Cat Eyes mascara yet I think this maybe one of my favourite mascara's to date.  
It's reasonably priced at £7.99 and is widely available in Boots and Superdrug across the country. If your lucky you can always find a good deal in your local Asda or Tesco which is always a plus. My eyelashes are naturally quite long but fair in colour so I always like to use mascara to enhance the look of my eyes. 

The packaging is not the greatest but when the product is good you really can't complain. The wand is small and slightly curved which allows you to get right to the roots making it easy to separate the lashes including those tiny ones that are usually hard to get to as well catching the outer lashes to create that 'cat eye' look - if you smudge a bit of kohl liner in the upper lash line you can also create a really quick and easy smokey eye.

Although this mascara is not highly pigmented after a second coat you can get a reasonable intensity, the formula is quite wet which I prefer however it's not messy at all like some mascaras.

With Mascara
If your looking for a thickening or volumising mascara this is probably not for you. Maybelline's Cat Eyes is more a lengthening mascara - it really makes you look awake and gives you long, flirty looking lashes. I highly recommend this mascara to everyone in particular to those who have short lashes. Hope this has been helpful x
