Four Things ❤︎ MASCARAS Part 2

Hello and welcome to the second post in my Four Things series. Today's post is a continuation of the first post in this series, but the next ones will be about something completely new. Because I own eight mascaras in total I thought that it would be nice to split them into two parts. If you haven't already, make sure to check out Four Things: Mascaras part one.

Maybelline Full 'N Soft
Maybelline's Full 'N Soft mascara was a favourite of mine for the longest time. I first tried this a bit over a year ago and I just loved how my lashes were darker and fuller, but still soft just like the product claims. This mascara did tend to smudge on me towards the end of the day but not terribly. It was easy to just wipe a little under my eyes to remove it, but of course, it would have been better if I didn't have to do that at all. It is a very natural mascara that gives soft and feathery lashes, but I wouldn't recommend it to those who prefer a more intense and dramatic look. Although I used to really like this, I haven't been reaching for it much recently.

Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof
I purchased this after really liking the non-waterproof version in hopes that it wouldn't smudge as much. I found that it did smudge less, but still wasn't smudge proof. I still much prefer how the original applies to my lashes. The non-waterproof one is thicker and is not as natural looking (a better option for those who like less natural mascaras, but still not dramatic). The formula dried a bit odd and even though it wasn't noticeable if I looked close up my lashes would have a SLIGHT spidery leg look. I still use this but it's not the first mascara I reach for.

Maybelline One by One
This was my favourite mascara up until it was discontinued (that's when I switched to the Full N' Soft mascara). The rubber wand shape together with the formula worked really well with my lashes. I like the intensity that this mascara gives because it is very black and makes it seem like you have naturally intense lashes. I found the same mascara a couple of years later in a waterproof version (pictured) and it seems very similar but because it's supposedly still discontinued, I'm not sure if it's authentic or not. The waterproof one I have currently is very difficult to remove so I rarely reach for this. I personally prefer non-waterproof mascara but that's just me.

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Smoky Eyes
Honestly, the only reason I bought this mascara is because I accidentally forgot to bring one with me when I went to a friends house to get ready to go out. I don't like to share eye makeup so I just quickly stopped by the chemist and picked up the one on sale, which happened to be the Colossal Volume Express from Maybelline. I doubt I would have picked this up any other time, but I actually ended up liking it. Not so much that I'd repurchase it anytime soon, but enough to continue wearing it every now and then. I found the formula to be on the slightly drier side, but not in a bad way.

And that brings us to the end of this post. Please keep in mind that I love lashes that look naturally full. I did mentioned this in part one as well, but thought I'd mention it again. If you love the fake lash look then some of these may layer well but because I don't do that I cannot say for sure. If you look for the same thing as I do in mascaras then you may like these, or even more so the ones I mention in part one. Have you tried any of these?

  1. I've used the Maybelline Colossal one for such a long time but the last few times I bought it the texture was horrible, I think they've changed something. :(

  2. I personally have a high success rate with maybelline mascaras. They are my favourite mascara brand. Then again I am lucky enough to have long, full lashes so mascaras don't cause me too much drama.

    1. I so far have got along with Maybelline mascaras for the most part, or at least the ones I tried have been easy to work with. My two favourite mascaras though happen to be from CoverGirl and Rimmel. It's definitely a bonus when you have naturally long and full lashes. I used to have very long and dark eyelashes up until a few years ago. Maybe it's all in my head but I feel like they're not as prominent on my face anymore hahah. Thank you for reading! xx

    1. They're not my all time favourites but they are workable, I do spend a bit of time brushing my eyelashes out though to keep them nice and separate. xx

    1. Thank you! I'm always working to improve my images, so reading your comment made my day. I haven't tried Maybelline's Falsies so I can't compare, but I know so many people who like that mascara too. xx

  6. I stopped buying Maybelline products because they test in animals. Plus my favorite brand for marcara is Rimmel, they leave my eyelashes super voluminous and black, I love it!
