FPM Product Review – Mascara!

22 Nov

For most of my life, I’ve gotten urgent phone calls from friends that go something like “I’m at the makeup counter and I need to know if I should get the cherry red lipstick or ruby red!  What do I do?!”  I LOVE giving makeup advice, and for some reason everything I’ve read regarding makeup products and makeup tips has completely sunk in.  As for everything else in life, well I have the worst memory.  But when it comes to makeup, there’s a reference manual inside my head that I am constantly sifting through.  So I decided to start doing some product reviews to share my thoughts.  I’d love to hear your feedback, I hope you find them helpful!

Without further ado, here we go with our first ever FPM Product Review.

Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara

maybelline-new-york-the-colossal-cat-eyes-mascara

Price Range:  $5.99

Where to buy:  Your nearest drugstore, Target, Ulta, Amazon

Website claims:  Colossal lashes go fully feline in one stroke.  Lush Collagen formula and claw brush fill out lashes up to 8 x the volume with fabulous cat-like corners, instantly. It’s wild!  For best results, apply the claw brush against the lashes and sweep from root to tip for a full look in just one stroke. Removes easily with soap and water or Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

What I love about this product:

  • I love that the website says ‘It’s wild!’ HA
  • I love that it’s buildable.  You can swipe one coat for a very natural look, or multiple coats to really thicken and lengthen.
  • With a few coats, you will be amazed at how much this product makes your lashes pop without making them clumpy.
  • The waterproof formula really works!
  • You can’t beat the price.  Very reasonable especially when you’re tossing mascara after their 3 month shelf life.

What I dislike about this product: 

  • The packaging is a little bold for my taste.
  • Sometimes I have trouble removing the waterproof mascara from my lashes.
  • Rarely I will notice very small amounts of flaking, but nothing too severe.
 Overall ratings:
  • Packaging: 2 out of 5
  • Price:  5 out of 5
  • Quality:  5 out of 5
  • Would I buy again?  Absolutely
