Promise me false-lash looking results and I want it is generally the rule when it comes to mascara. This is no different. I’m not a snob when it comes to mascara, I don’t care if it costs £1 for £20 – I’ll want to give it a go and see how it works. That being said, when it comes to the cheaper brands I do go in with a slight expectation that it’s not going to work as well… which is totally unfair. Especially since my last experience of Collection 2000 was so pleasantly surprising, especially the mascara – which was amazingly pigmented.
Happy to say that yet again Collection 2000 have pleasantly surprised me. I love the big fluffy brush, I have decided these are my mascara brush of choice (rather than the smaller, more solid comb type) the formula is easy to load up on to lashes without clumping and delivers great length and volume.

I’ve given this mascara two big tests – a full day at work and a Saturday of wear. Both of which it held up really well – with zero flaking. Very impressed.

Removing it was OK, it clings well – which makes it a little bit of a challenge to get off, but a decent eye make-up remover will do the trick (I’m back to my favourite No7 eye make up remover again – about the 5th bottle I’ve gone through, highly recommend). The mascara is available in three shades, Black, Ultra Black and Brownish Black. I tried the brownish black shade, which normally wouldn’t be my shade of choice (I like my lashes dark as possible) but this was still really dark – check the pictures out and let me know what you think.
So there we have, this mascara is excellent value for money!
