Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme Mascara review

Hello,

this is a review of a new mascara from Maybelline - The Colossal Go Extreme:). In general I like Maybelline mascaras a lot. I normally buy original Colossal mascaras but this time I wanted to try something new.

Maybelline Go Extreme, you can see a big brush









  • Pros:
  • adds some length,
  • adds volume
  • applies evenly,
  • separates the lashes,
  • doesn't smudge,
  • easy to remove (I just use plain water which removes about 80% of mascara and then I finish with a bit of micellar water).

Cons:
  • looks effective only if you apply two coats. You will have to wait that the first coast dries and then apply the second coat. I don't remember that I would have to do this with other mascaras,
  • the brush is really big and for me it is difficult to reach the lashes next to the inner corner of the eye,
  • it may flake and give you a panda eyes effect. It happened to me on the foggy, humid day. I applied mascara in the morning and after about 40 minutes walk to the school I had small flakes under my eyes.

Overall, I would say this is just an average mascara and I would rather recommend you the original version of Maybelline Colossal or Maybelline the Falsies one

Thank you for reading and greetings,

Maybelline Dream Mat Powder in 02 Rose Ivory

Hello,
today I would like to tell you about the Maybelline Dream Mat Powder in colour Rose Ivory.

Maybelline Dream Mat Powder

This is one of my favourite face powders. It is very silky and makes your skin looking smooth, oh so smooth:). The Maybelline Dream Mat powder is finely ground and allows you to achieve a very natural finish.

Pros:

  • controls the shine
  • provides mat look but not a flat mat
  • can be reapplied without caking
  • natural finish
  • adjusts to the skin colour
  • doesn't clog the pores
  • doesn't irritate the skin
  • no allergic reaction
  • makes the skin looking very smooth 
  • after blending doesn't accentuate the facial hair, pores or dry patches
  • the packaging is very practical, it won't break easily even when it fells on the floor
  • the powder consists of a puff powder and a mirror
  • the price
  • availability
Cons:
  • none 
I have actually repurchased this product and I don't do it too often (mainly because I like trying new things). But Maybelline Dream Mat Powder is a classic and I will recommend it to everyone who has combination/oily skin and needs some "powder magic" to refine the look of their skin.
