Colour Me In: 3 Black Mascaras on my Miss List!

'Colour Me In' is a series of posts in collaboration with Alice of ArsyParsy, Tezza of Myteeefine and Amanda of Thai-Tales!


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!

Top: Lash Blast, bottom: Lash Blast Length

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?

Whether it be low-end or high-end, let us know!

For this week's line up of posts, Alice will let you know how well Revlon's ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner performs, whilst Tezza will be sharing thoughts on 4 different eyeliners... As for Amanda, there's a Benefit Lash Battle happening at her page for Benefit fans!

  1. Have you tried the waterproof version of lashblast? I agree the original one isnt too impressive, but the waterproof one is true gold :D!

    1. I haven't! But thank you :P I'll definitely keep that in mind for when I do look out for a mascara!

  2. Nice misses! I quite dislike wet formulas too, they are hell to Asian eyelashes :( The Colossal looks dreadfully wet...
    Glam Eyes is one of my favourite mascaras too! :)

  3. I've heard so so many great things about the Colossal! Surprised you didn't like it!

  4. I swear my Colossal was never that wet! I really loved the way it made my lashes look, and believe me, I basically have non-existent Asian lashes :(

    1. Aw!! This is unfair! :( I wished its magic worked on me, but either way I'm still glad to hear it works for you :)

  5. I think the original LasBlast was OK but mothing amazing but I was super disappointed by the Colossal ):

  6. re: Maybelline Colossal Volum Express, could it be you got a bad tube?
    i have gone through a few tubes and one particular tube was really wet and clumpy and unworkable - basically smudges and make a mess everytime i try to use it. i've also had one that was quite dry and does nothing at all. otherwise most of them work well on my barely there straight lashes.

    1. Oh wow! Thanks for your input Coco! I might have to check with my friends then! But how can they be like this... some tubes with a wet formula and some tubes dry. Yikessss.

  7. I didn't like Colossal either which was sad because it gets so many raves that I thought I would love it. I found it on the thick/clumpy side. And it flakes a ton on me!
