Makeup $$$ Saver

Hello smart shopper,

When I’m looking for an affordable yet quality mascara, Maybelline is my go to because they have a wide selection of wand bristles. Recently I experimented with the Rocket Volum’ Express and the Colossal Volum’ Express mascaras. Try using them together!

These mascaras perform two different functions for your lashes but what I discovered is that combining them gave me the most desirable look. Here are the before and afters.

Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express

{Pro} This waterproof mascara creates the appearance of fuller, more voluminous lashes. Unlike the Colossal Express, it does not dry up quickly in the tube.

{Con} Having short lashes, this mascara doesn’t create the appearance of lengthened or extended lashes. In fact the weight of the mascara causes the curled lash to fall.

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express

{Pro} The wand is curled allowing you to coat the whole lash line. Furthermore, its spectacular how much this mascara lengthens and separates my lashes from clumps.

{Con} Although the lashes look much longer and well separated, the mascara does not create the appearance of voluminous lashes. They appear very fine and unnoticeable.

Mascaras Combined 

Combining them has the benefits of long, separated lashes and greater fullness and volume. Tip: work on one lash line at a time. I apply the Colossal Express first and then follow up with the heavier Rocket Express mascara.

Have you tried out these mascaras, what are your opinions? Let us know in the comments. You can also keep in touch with out adventures via Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram @lipstick_trilogy.
