Ok, ok... maybe "addict" is a bit extreme. But if you are like me, you can never have enough mascara! My husband constantly pokes fun at me for having 10+ tubes (at times) and still coming at him with, "But this one's newwwwww. It's volumizes AND lengthens!" I could be speaking another language for all he cares. lol
Although I venture at times (guilty), Maybelline is still my go-to for mascara. Colossal is my favorite so far, so when I saw they have Pumped Up Colossal, I just had to have it!
Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal
First impression: You gotta love the hot pink tube! It stands out in my makeup bag and makes it very easy to find (in what I refer to as... "the black hole.")
The brush: I LOVE this brush. I seriously think almost any mascara is a "good" one as long as it's got a nice, fat brush! Anything I've tried with a scrawny brush has left me disappointed. I won't even buy a mascara now unless the brush is huge.
The formula: It went on smooth. Wasn't too runny or watery... I hate mascara that's runny. Obviously, not like water but do you know what I mean? I like it thick so it sticks to my lashes! lol I applied one coat, let it dry, then applied a second coat. It stayed on all day and I didn't have an issue with flaking. I even had a bootcamp workout yesterday evening and it lasted without smearing or flaking through that!
Conclusion: I don't think it's that much different than the original Colossal but they are the same price. So why not? I would buy it again!
I love trying new mascara! What's your favorite?
*All opinions are my own. I was not compensated in any way by Maybelline (I wish!). I just really love their mascara and wanted to share with you!
