Well guys, 2016 is almost officially behind us. Boy what a year it has been, huh? It certainly had its ups and downs.

Regardless of how you felt about 2016, on thing is for sure, we got a lot of new makeup releases and plenty to chat about in the beauty community.

And we can't close out the year without squeezing in one more product review for you. After all, that's the primary focus of this blog.

So we're bidding 2016 a fond farewell by chatting about voluminous lashes, courtesy of a new drugstore mascara. Seems appropriate, considering va-va-voom lashes are a must for New Years and beefing up my savings efforts (or rather ramping down my spending?) is a 2017 goal.

Enter the new Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara ($6.49), which arrived on my doorstep courtesy of Influenster.

The mascara claims to deliver fully-loaded volume in just one coat. I'm not making this up guys. That's what it says on the packaging. It's other claim to fame is the brush. It's a regular bristle brush (not rubber). But instead of straight bristles, it also has curled bristles that are supposed to help grip your lashes to really separate them and coat them with mascara.

Listen, long, voluminous lashes are kind of my jam. (Aren't they everyone's?) So, I was ready to dig in and see if this mascara would really deliver. Check out my video below to see my first impression review.

And, in case you didn't get a close enough look at my mascara results in the video, here's a still shot for you. As you can see in the caption, it took three coats of mascara to reach this level of volume and lengthening. 

So much for fully loaded lashes in one coat...

Still, if you can look passed needing multiple coats (which I can), I think the results are pretty good. Now let's just hope the dry mascara formula doesn't result in mascara flaking into my eyes (or the tube lasting only a few weeks).
