Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Review

Maybelline Volum' Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash1

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara is the newest formula to join the Maybelline Colossal Mascara family. The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara comes to us as part of Maybelline’s Summer 2015 Collection but will remain permanently available from my understanding.

Who approved the marketing ad on this mascara? It displays a model with spidery, clumpy lashes…eep! Not the look I go for when applying mascara but ummm ok maybe Maybelline wants to take a little “creative” liberties with the mascara marketing.

Maybelline the Colossal Chaotic Lash

I actually remember enjoy the original and first Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara but since that release there have been dozens of formulations and brush applicator changes that haven’t really caught my attention. I’m all about new and exciting products but the constant stream of “Miss Manga”, “the Colossal”, “Voluminous”, and other releases is not only confusing but so repetitive. As far as I’m concerned most times it’s just about a brush change and not so much a formula one.

Do we need another Colossal Mascara?

I say nay!

L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara Review

L'Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara3

L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Rock Mascara joins the Miss Manga Mascara Collection for Summer 2015 and should be arriving at drugstores now. This new formula and applicator promises volume thanks to a 360 degree spiked brush head. Honestly, the displays for L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock and the new Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara are completely off putting to me as they show models with clumpy, spidery lashes. Yeah, so, that’s not really the look I’m going for.

But of course, I had to try out L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara for myself (even though I wasn’t particularly keen on the original formula).

So here’s some thoughts!

Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain

Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour is one of several new Balm Stain flavors that launched with the Wet n Wild California Dreaming Summer 2015 Collection.

Yeah, so, I liked the name! I’m such a goof but it totally made me snort out loud.

Actually Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain is part of the permanent range of shades so it’s just being repromoted in the California Dreaming Collection but still it’s a shade I haven’t tried before so I was happy they brought it my attention in this display! I love orange lipsticks, glosses, etc in the Summer and See If I Carrot is a delightful shade of orange for Summer looks!

Covergirl Outlast All Day Primer Review & Swatches

Covergirl Outlast All Day Primer

Covergirl Outlast All Day Primer ($11.99) is a new face primer that launched with the Covergirl Summer 2015 Collection which will be added to the permanent collection of Covergirl Outlast makeup products.

I really love Revlon Photoready Primer so I never understand why I shop around for other face primers because I tend to use Photoready more than any other primer I own! But lord knows a new one pops up and of course, I have to try it out for myself.

Let’s take a peek at Covergirl Outlast All Day Primer and see what the good word is!

Colourpop Flipper

Colourpop Flipper Super Shock Shadow, names apparently due to the user’s tendency to flip out upon application haha, is a new Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow that launched with the Colourpop Summer 2015 Collection.

Can I just say that Colourpop has really been on a roll lately with new releases? There’s quite a good deal of delicious products launching lately including the Colourpop Highlighters, the new blushes, and of course, now the Rumer Willis Collaboration.

Let’s take a look at Colourpop Flipper!
