Favorites #4


I love make-up.  I feel like an artist when I apply even if it's only a little, but I have to have just the right product especially Where mascara is concerned. I have tried sooooooooo many.
I need waterproof for church ( Did I mention I have a tendency to cry at tender things?) and regular for most other days.  I bought Avon's wash off waterproof.  It does a good job.  I bought a Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof and just don't like it's wimpy little brush or the way it coats the lash. Colett turned me onto Colossal Volume Express by Maybelline and I like it the best.  The sculpted brush gets all the lashes, even in the corner and it won't come off unless I use eye make-up remover.  My favorite regular mascara is also Colossal volume Express.  It has the same brush and doesn't dry out as quickly as some.  I have fairly long lashes but they are not really thick so it works to plump up the lashes a bit. I have tried Prescriptives, Avon, Revlon, Estee Lauder and others that haven't worked as well for me. I like the one called Falsies (also by Maybelline) and it works well but has the little wimpy brush that almost feels like it will break if you use it too often.  If I use the Colossal brush in the Falsies tube, then it works pretty well.  For me, I don't want the "almost can't tell it's there" mascara, or the mascara that thickens so much it looks like spider legs hanging from your eyes..ewww... but I like something that extends, thickens a  little and stays put until I take it off.  That's what Colossal does for me.  I just might mention that no matter what mascara I have, I take the brush and bend it into a arch before I use it.  It makes applying easier.
