Maybelline released Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara here in the US finally. It’s actually an old formula for Asia and I believe the UK also has it (don’t quote me on the Europe release) but just recently launched on our side of the pond.
I don’t have a ton of beef with the Colossal formula. It’s served me well but it’s also disappointed me with releases like Mega Plush which is an uneventful drugstore mascara.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara is something I knew I wouldn’t like but I wanted to review anyway and even try for that matter. You never know, it could prove amazing right?
No such luck!
MAC recently launched their new Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash Mascara which might seem familiar to you as it is a play on their original Haute & Naughty Mascara.
It deserves to be mentioned I loved the original formulation but I wasn’t sure how they could improve on this especially since it looked like the same exact product.
Let’s take a look!
Too Faced Lash Injection Extreme Tubing Mascara ($21) is the brand’s revamp of their popular Lash Injection formula. I wasn’t particularly keen on the original Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara in all honesty but I’m always terribly curious when a brand relaunches a cult favorite in a new formulation.
I think for me Lash Injection fell into two groups, people who really loved it and others that didn’t get the happiness and joy from use. I fall into the “I don’t get it?” group.
However, being the junkie I am I decided to give their new formatted Lash Injection Extreme Tubing Mascara a whirl.
Let’s take a look!
As you know from some of my past posts the Balm has introduced their new What’s Your Type? Mascara for Summer 2012. This includes Tall, Dark, and Handsome Mascara for adding length to lashes and the Body Builder for volumizing lashes.
I recently reviewed Tall, Dark, and Handsome for you and last week I was using The Body Builder’s formula.
Let’s take a peek!
the Balm has two new mascaras that launched this Summer which will either lengthen or volumize your lashes. the Balm What’s Your Type Mascara? is available in a body builder formula for plumping lashes up and giving them a thicker, fatter finish or the tall, dark, and handsome formulation that creates longer lashes.
What’s your type?
I’ll take either thanks so much or better yet give me Tall, Dark, Handsome and Built….!
But we can’t have it all and I respect the Balm for not creating a formula that promises volume and only delivers length and vice versa. Dontcha hate mascaras that promise length and volume but you come out of with one or the other but never both?
Aggggrrrrr! That stinks.
Let’s check out the Balm What’s Your Type? Tall, Dark, and Handsome Mascara first.
