Collection Big Fake Curves Mascara | Review

Hello everyone!

Firstly, sorry that this is only the second beauty post of the year! I've been waiting for a semi-decent day of sunshine to take some new pictures, and the day finally came yesterday! Be prepared for a heap I have for you... Now onto the post!

A new mascara that I've been trying recently is the Big Fake Curves Mascara from Collection. I'm a huge fan of the brand, so I'm constantly picking up their products and ones that I've never tried before. You can get this in Boots for £3.99.

The packaging is pretty basic and simple. It explains what it is and the desired effect you can get, along with a little 'blurb' about the mascara. I liked that it was a nice shaped tube and the pink caught my eye, which was why I picked it up.

The brush applicator... Well, where do I start? I hate it. It reminds me of a war mace I'm likely to see in The Hobbit movies, more than a spoolie for my mascara. It's just so chunky and I found it really hard to get an even look on my lashes, and parts didn't get any mascara on at all.

Overall, I'm really disappointed with this mascara and I don't really like it. It's too hard to navigate, and the brush is just awful in my opinion. It pains me to say so, as I totally adore Collection! I won't be buying it again, and I honestly, I don't recommend it either. If you want a good one from Collection, then their Extreme Coloured Lengthening mascara is perfect for you. You can read my review on that one here.

Have you tried this yourself, and what did you think? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
