Cherry Pie : Collection 2000 'Big Fake' Mascara

Collection 2000 'Big Fake' Mascara

Although this is my third new mascara in the past month, I really wanted to buy the 'Big Fake' by Collection 2000 because I had read such good things about it on fellow blogs.

£5 for a mascara is a real bargain when you think about it. Some of the mascaras on sale can be up to and over £10 which personally I think is ridiculous! Thankfully, I got paid today so decided to treat myself!

When I first picked it up, I loved the shape of the tube and how easily the wand glides in and out of it. The mascara claims to 'DOUBLE YOUR LASH SIZE' with lash boosting tube technology which plumps and stretches each lash with NO clumping or smudging. Those are some big claims.

I have really awful eyelashes that choose to grow outwards instead of upwards, so it's always difficult for me to have nice, lengthy lashes that curl up. It usually takes me about 20 layers of mascara and about 10 minutes of holding the lashes in place for them to stay in that position; and don't even get me started on eye lash curlers - useless!

The neck of the tube takes off a lot of excess mascara so it took a few applications to get a nice finish, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The mascara certainly didn't smudge, and only clumped a tiny bit (much less than other mascaras). Although the wand wont reach the corner lashes, that really doesn't matter. It lengthened my eyelases very nicely and looks as natural as it possibly can do. I love the finished look! A big hit!

I am seriously impressed with this mascara and it's a real contender for the more expensive brands out there. I always thought of Collection 2000 as a cheap and cheerful brand but this mascara just shows that they mean business in the make up stakes. This has got to be my new favourite mascara!
