I had a coupon for $1 off the Colossal Cat eyes mascara from rite aid, and a $.50 off any maybelline eye makeup, so I obviously could not say no to trying out this mascara. The mascara packaging itself appealed to me. I have yet to see any cheetah print I didn’t like.
I want to start off saying I love wands like this! I feel like I am able to apply mascara more evenly and better with wands like this. This has the very distinct mascara scent to it, I’m not exactly sure what it smells like but it’s not all that pleasant. It’s a pretty dry mascara, and dries within a minute. I generally like this mascara, it gives me better than normal results, just not amazing results.
- Fast dry time
- Gives okay volume
- Does add length
- Awesome wand
- Really cool packaging
- Lashes still feel soft
- Smells weird
- Doesn’t give bam wow lashes like promised
This product is best for those who already have long lashes, and or a lot of lashes.
So this doesn’t live up to it’s promises, but it’s still a pretty good mascara. I feel like if you have long lashes, and a lot of them you’ll love this mascara. My friend has such nice lashes and she loves this mascara.
( Please excuse my jungle of eyebrows. After a botched wax job, I have to fully grow them out again to make them normal. The wax lady waxed one higher than the other. )
VERDICT: This doesn’t do wonders for me, but I do like this mascara. I will continue to use it until I have to throw it out. Benefit’s They’re Real has ruined other mascaras for me! What a shame. Sells for about $8. Pass.
So I’ve been using this mascara for about 4 months now, I even repurchased this. Since I made this review I’ve been doing things to make my lashes healthier which in turn made my lashes grow. Now that I have longer and thicker lashes I am in love with the mascara. So my prediction of if you have long lashes already this mascara will be for you. I do love this mascara and suggest it to those with long lashes already. Picture below is with my longer, healthier lashes.
