For today’s post I’m going to do a quick review on this super affordable waterproof mascara by Collection which I’ve been using on its own for the last week, available at Boots or Superdrug (I got mine from Boots!) for £4.99 at it’s retail price, though I bought it on sale for £2.99.
For a start, the packaging is quite elegant for it’s pricing, and I loved the black and gold contrast. This specific mascara is intended to be waterproof, though there is also one especially for volume, from the same range with the same format. The wand wasn’t what i expected. I expected a larger wand simply because of the packaging but I actually really like it as it’s got very small bristles which are perfect for extending your lashes as they can get in between them well. I found that the application with a few coats is quite good at making your lashes look longer without looking like you’ve got much on. It also deepens the colour of your lashes well in my opinion, which give them a bit more definition.
As for the waterproof side of it, it is pretty much what it says. During this week I happened to be chopping onions which was a great test to see if they are indeed waterproof and from judgement I can say that there were no visible smudges or indication that it wasn’t waterproof. It can be tough to remove if you’ve applied a few coats so I guess the waterproof side works!
Overall, I think that although it is not one of the best to give ultra volume, considering I was looking specifically for a simple, cheap waterproof mascara, I think the quality is in line with the price. It’s a great, everyday mascara and I assume the volume version would be just as good and specialise in volume, rather than waterproof like this one!
