Another Thursday, another 'Colour Me In' collaboration post!
A few more Thursdays to go and we will be rounding up this collaboration series of 'Colour Me In'! Of course, that doesn't mean that's all for us four.. we'll still be blogger budz and you'll definitely see me feature their links on my blog! :P
This week's colour is 'black' and if you know me, you would know I'm boring as hell so it's really no surprise that I'd be featuring eyeliners or mascaras! :P
But to switch things up from the usual 'what's on my hit list', let's skim through and see what's on my mascara-miss list!
Covergirl Lash Blast -- this one, is nice, but I do think it's a bit over-rated. It gives nice volume, some length, separates well, but makes your eyelashes stiff as hell in return! Although I don't really care for stiff lashes, I've found the same results in other mascaras without the stiffness, so... ya. I do like that this mascara is easy to access and the colour is very black, but I personally don't think it's anything amazing for my Asian lashes, so farewell Lash Blast!

Covergirl Lash Blast Length -- is quite disappointing. The wand is awkwardly long, but the bristles do remind me of my once-upon-a-time favourite Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mascara. It separates really well, but perhaps too well that all my lashes look like they are 10 miles apart from each other. LMAO. (Yeap, call me the Queen of Over-exaggeration).
Jokes!! But it does do its job at separating, except that it doesn't really separate evenly. Adding to that, I just can't seem to get an 'even' lengthening application with the wand, so altogether it makes me look like I have unevenly seperated, wonky lashes. Meep.
Maybelline Colossal Volum Express -- I've heard alot of beauties raved about this mascara so I was excited when my sister received this as a gift! However, its wet formula doesn't work on my Asian lashes at all.. It's way too heavy for my lashes, weighing it down (which is the last thing I want for my lashes) and clumping it together. I think most beauties who adores this mascara, are already blessed with naturally long eyelashes, so it's a totally different take for my Asian eyelashes.
Of course, these are just brief overviews! I do hope to review them in the upcoming future, but your turn to share now...
Which mascaras just doesn't work for you?
