I am hopelessly addicted to Maybelline Colossal mascara! For the longest time, I only bought L’Oreal Voluminous simply because that is what my mom always used. I think that is what a lot of women do, they buy whatever their mom buys. Don’t get me wrong here, I was always satisfied with the Voluminous mascara, but it never really blew me away.
Since I began my hard-core coupon shopping a while back, I have been trying lots of new products that I wouldn’t have otherwise bought. One category of products that tends to be free after coupon/rebate is cosmetics. So I have been trying different lipsticks, glosses, mascaras, and beauty tools. About a month ago, one such freebie deal led me to purchase Maybelline Colossal mascara and I have never looked back. Since then I snatch up just about every remotely good deal I find on it, which is usually at least BIGI free.
It doesn’t get clumpy and it really extends my lashes in a non-over-the-top sort of way. I should also add that I use a lash curler as well since it makes a huge difference in how mascara looks. I discovered lash curlers fairly recently also and would not be without it now.
In general, I am not much of makeup person. I usually just opt for mascara and lipstick/gloss, so I really appreciate when those things work well for me.
