Maybelline Colossal Smokey Eye in Blue Blaze Review

Purchased 

I didn't buy into the colored mascara craze, like I wanted to. But when maybelline came out with a blue mascara in the colossal formula I just couldn't resist!!! Click down below to see what I think of this mascara.

What it promises:

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT

Our collagen enriched formula and khol effect pigments give your lashes volume and super matte look.

FOR BEST RESULTS

Use one of the Master Smoky pens for ultimate dark & sultry smoky eyes. ----- I actually had a hard time finding what Maybelline promised online. This is from the UK site, not the US site, they don't have a product page for this yet. 

What I found:
I excitedly riped it out of its packaging as soon as I go it home to try it out. I quickly curled my lashes and applied this. It is one of the wettest formulas I've ever come accross. This level of wetness rivals MACs mascara I just recently reviewed here.

Another disappointent is that with a name like blue blaze I expected to see a pop of blue color. Not a dusky grey color.

I do like the brush, I feel that bushes like these usually give lots of volume. Yet for some reason this mascara is super clumpy. It gives me the length I want to get, but it's clumpy so it doesn't give tons of volume. Colossal Smokey Eye mascara clumps the lashes together at the base, which is such a bummer.

VERDICT: I had really high hopes for this mascara. Maybe a little too high. This really isn't a bad mascara, but I wouldn't repurchases it. Pass. Sells for about $8
