Maybelline mascaras never impress me, I always find them a bit 'meh' but I picked up a evolution of my only acceptable Maybelline mascara, The Colossal Volum’ Express. And not only has it turned into the Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Mascara, it is now in Leather Black. This is actually Maybelline's first double stem mascara, designed to push an extra shot of volume onto lashes. And no, don't ask me what a double stem is, I have no idea.
Now I am a mascara addict, and even I have got rather confused with all the new and different versions of mascara Maybelline bring out, so I will just pretend this is brand new. No old comparisons. Except maybe the packaging, as I am so glad the cheap yellow has gone. Well almost.
The wand comes out of the tube just like any other despite the claims, the shape of the wand doesn't seem to affect how much mascara is on the bristles either. I think that the shape of the actual bristles (an elongated oval) actually makes it a bit harder to apply to your lashes, it can be a tad difficult to fit to the shape of your eye and also makes it difficult to get the smaller lashes in corners of your eye. Plus, I see no double stem...
Tiny moan aside, the bristles do comb through my lashes, essential for my continual mascara overload. I can also layer a few coats without clumps, luckily. What I do like about the Go Extreme is that it gives a good amount of volume to the base of my eyelashes, hello eyeliner illusion. Anything taking an extra step out of my morning makeup routine is fine by me.
So while I am not sure this is much different from the Maybelline Colossal Mascara, Go Extreme is a very good mascara. It would of been even better if I did get the leather lashes, would of been good to match my jacket, but for now I'll just stick to plain old black.
