Collection (Formerly Collection 200) has been one of my go to high street makeup brands recently
Their Lasting Perfection Concealer has become a staple in my makeup bag
So I popped into Boots at the weekend to repurchase it and noticed that the 3 for 2 offer was on
Mascara has never been something I've been a snob about
I really don't think there is a massive difference between high end and high street mascaras
So when I seen Collection's newest mascara 'Big Fake Ultimate false lash effect mascara'
for £5.99 I decided to grab it
The first thing I noticed was the size of the wand
IT IS HUGE!!!!
Here is a comparison
On the left is the wand from Max Factor's Masterpiece Mascara and on the right is the Collection wand
Personally I find it difficult to use such a big wand and I've got pretty big eyes so I can only imagine how hard it would be for someone with little peepers!
I just found it quite clumsy to work with.
Especially on my bottom lashes
I was however impressed with the effect it had on my lashes
It made them nice and long and gave them plenty of volume
The first day I wore it was on Sunday
I teamed it with a fairly new black liquid liner
So by the end of the day when I looked in the mirror and noticed that I resembled a Panda with massive dark smudges under my eyes, I wasn't sure if it was the mascara or the eyeliner.
I didn't want to review the mascara until I'd given it a fair shot
so I have worn it every day this week.
(without eye liner)
I haven't done anything to strenuous. I've been off work this week so some days I haven't even went out
Yet every single day I have ended up with dark circles under my eyes!
I really wanted to love this product
but unfortunately I'm really not impressed so far!
Has anyone else tried this mascara?
Have you had the same problem?
P.s I'm off to Spain for a week tomorrow :) woohoo!
I will try and write a few posts to schedule between packing tonight
Don't miss me too much :) x
