Product review: Maybelline Colossal Big Shot volum' express mascara

Disclaimer: I received the Colossal Big Shot mascara by Maybelline in an influenster voxbox. It was complimentary (free) for testing purposes, which in no way affects my opinion on the product.

Now this was my first voxbox so I felt like a big deal receiving this box with maybelline and influenster marked on it. When I opened it up it was packaged perfectly. In the box was the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot volum' express mascara, Master Precise curvy liquid eyeliner, a card with info on the mascara and instructions on how to post reviews about the product on social media (specific tags and hashtags). And packing paper to keep everything from flopping around in the box.

What it promises:
•Lashes go so powerful, fully loaded volume in one coat.
Ophthalmologist tested. •suitable for contact lens wearers.

•To use: sweep brush from root to tip for dramatic volume. Re-dip and apply to other eye to see similar dramatic results. Removes easily with oil free make-up remover.

Ok so I had some other new make up items I'd recently bought (including Maybelline's FIT me! matte + poreless foundation) I wanted to try so now was the perfect time to try everything out and beat my face. This mascara really hit the mark. It does what it says, the brush is made with tons of bristles that loads more product so you don't have to put on so many coats to get the full effect it boasts.

I was left with full lashes without the clumpy tarantula look you get from other mascaras. It builds well, so you can add a couple of coats if you need to without the fear of clumping. The shade of "blackest black" they sent me was a rich jet black. It also claims to wash off easily, and it really did come off with one wash.
