Beauty Review: Awesome Mascara On The Cheap!

I’ve been a diehard fan of Lancome mascara for years.  But at $26 a tube, I’d been wondering if there was a less expensive alternative.  Good news…

Enter: Maybelline’s the Colossal Volum’ Express!

A friend of mine swears by this stuff and suggested I try it, so I picked up a tube last week and I’m thrilled with the results!  It’s a thin formula with a thick brush, meaning it gets into all the nooks and crannies.  It’s easy to layer without clumping up.  And it lasts all day without flaking!

It comes in both regular and waterproof versions and the best part: it costs only $4.79!  That’s less than a fifth of what I was paying for Lancome!

Needless to say, I’m thrilled with this find.

What’s your favorite mascara brand?  Have you tried Maybelline’s Colossal Volum’ Express?  Got another recommendation?  And do you wear waterproof or washable?  Tell me in the comments!

    everyone’s different.. I tried that mascara & it clumped a bit.. I recently started wearing contacts & my optometrist suggested cover girl’s lash blast legnth because it doesnt flake which is great for contacts- its in a yellow tube & comes in waterproof too! I love it because it gives me noticeable natural looking legnth without the raccoon eye effect!
