Call us crazy, but it usually takes a few swipes to get the volume we want. True, it all depends on what we're working with. For instance, those of us with thick, full lashes tend to be a little more lenient when it comes to picking out a mascara, but those of us with barely-there lashes need all the help we can get.
Regardless, when two editors stumbled upon Maybelline New York's highly-rated Colossal Big Shot Volum' Express formula, they had to give it a whirl. Here's how it stacked up.
Another editor with less-defined lashes was also impressed. "My lashes are thin and curled, but also short. In mascara I want something that's going to elongate but define even the tiniest of my lashes," said Alanah Joseph. The main similarity between what both editors were looking for? Boldness. And eye-opening boldness is exactly what they both got.
Would they use it again? Absolutely—especially because the price tag is under $10.
