Maybelline Colour Sensational Cream Gloss Review

This came with the Great Lash Masacara :) The first thing that got me about this gloss was the smell! It has a really nice fruity scent to it - mainly orange I've heard ;) I picked out the colour Cashmere Rose which is a pretty pink loads of little shimmery bits in it. The pigmentation isn't too overwhelming which is quite nice and it isn't sticky at all. It's very moisturising as the formula has a creamy texture and is quite long-lasting. It looks really natural when on the lips and catches the light to make lips look fuller and moisturised. The packaging is really simple and sleek without being too flashy.
I defifnitely recommend this :)

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review

I purchased this product before Christmas and it came with a Maybelline Colour Sensational Cream Gloss. The packaging looks a bit dated in my opion and reminds me of art deco for some reason :s Sooo, its not the exterior of this product that appealed to me.
I've seen this around for AGES but hadn't got round to trying it out.
It's definitely not the worst mascara out there, but then again, it's not the best. Layering is quite tricky because you have to work fast before it dries or else it clumps up. It does a great job at defining and colouring lashes as it is really black! (Hence the name 'Blackest Black) The formula is rather 'runny' compared to other mascaras and I really don't like the wand because it's so small and isn't special at all. However, it is good at applying on the lower lashes as the wand is small enough to coat them without messing up the skin around your eye. As for lengthening, it's pretty average so there isn't alot for me to say. I HATE that it makes my lashes stick together and I wouldn't recommend this mascara for everyday use - I much prefer the Colossal Volum' one instead!

Maybelline Colossal Volum' Mascara Review

Lovin' this mazzy! The brush is amazingly thick and definately adds incredible length and volume! It helps to hold curl and doesn't weigh my lashes down. My lashes are long and full after applying this and they look like falso lashes! Yay :D

My only dislike is that after a few hours, there are black flakes under my bottom lashes where the mascara has dried up. It somehow manages to smudge aswell (panda eyes are a no-no) Also, it is quite tricky to remove ALL of it as some product still hangs on for dear life :)
Overall, I highly reccommend this mascara as it is affordable and AMAZING! Plus, the packaging is very eye-catching ;)
