The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

Maybelline has come out with a new Mascara! It is approximately $9. I mean but who really cares about eyelashes anyways? They are just hairs that grow out of your eyelid but what is the big to do about them? Well eyelashes tell a woman’s story and make them more than what meets the eye. If you really pay attention to a women’s eyelashes you can just about tell her story. No, it’s not that deep but they are a big deal! From long lashes, lash extensions, eyelash lifting, mascara, strip lashes, to just the bare lashes every woman is completely different and yes the lashes make the woman! Women take pride in their eyelashes.

Maybellines new Colossal Big Shot Mascara is, “Volum’ Express® The Colossal Big Shot™ Mascara unloads fully loaded volume in one coat”. The company claims that in one application you will have the most voluminous lashes that anyone has ever seen, they will be Colossal!

Well is that the truth?

Maybelline says these are the steps to apply the Mascara:

HOW TO USE/APPLY

Step 1. Sweep the Big Shot brush from root to tip for dramatic volume.

 Step 2. Repeat to build even bigger volume.

 Step 3. Do not let mascara dry in between coats.

 Step 4. Easily remove mascara with Maybelline Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

I have tried the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara and my initial thought was wow. After one coat I definitely did see a difference. My lashes did look voluminous, long, fake, and not clumpy. I have worn just this Mascara with a full face makeup and it did the job.

Out of 10 I would rate this Mascara a 9. The Mascara went on easily and did not smear throughout the day. My lashes looked the same at 10pm when I washed my face as it did when I first applied the Mascara at 10am. I use coconut oil to remove my makeup and the Mascara did not easily remove how I expected. I’m sure that if you go by the directions and use what the company says to remove the Mascara, there will be no hassle.

The Coconut Oil Rundown

Have you ever found yourself sitting under a palm tree glistening in coconut oil, relaxing, and drinking coconut milk from an actual coconut? No? Neither have I. Well Coconut oil has seemingly become the holy grail of the beauty industry.

Why would beauty experts rave over a fruit, nut or seed?
1. FACE

Coconut oil can be used on the face as a natural moisturizer or even used to clean the skin and rid it of bad acne causing bacteria’s.

2. SKIN

The saturated fats within coconut oil help to keep skin baby smooth and also assist the skin with retaining its natural moisture. Yes, coconut oil does wonders for dry skin problem such as eczema.

3. HAIR

Coconut oil can be use as a conditioner, a scalp moisturizer, a cooling agent, an anti-dandruff agent, lice protection, baldness, and split ends. The list goes on.

4. MAKEUP REMOVER

Since coconut oil has antibacterial properties, it can be used to remove makeup. It will remove the stubbornest makeup with ease!

5. Teeth Whitner

Yes, whiten your teeth! Swish coconut oil around in your mouth for approximately 5 minutes, spit in the trash and rinse your mouth with water. Your teeth will gradually look whiter over time.

These are only a few uses for coconut oil. The list goes on!

Yes, coconuts are fruits, nuts, and seeds but besides being perfect for breakfast lunch or dinner, the coconut oil can also be used on the skin, in the hair, and around the house. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants, has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. Coconuts pretty much do it all. No wonder why beauty experts go crazy over this stuff!

Maui Moisture

Imagine the wind blowing through your hair as you run barefoot along the beautiful coastline in Maui taking in such an astonishing view of the water. I’m sure everyone would take that over working a 9-5 any day. The product Maui Moisture gives you just that sensation at home as you shampoo and condition your hair.

I’m natural and have been since my first year of high school. I found Maui Moisture  in the natural hair section at a drug store and decided to give it a shot. The look of the bottles is what caught my attention.

Yes, Maui Moisture is Vegan, has Pure Coconut Water, & Pure Aloe Juice. We all know that coconuts are the holy grail of beauty!
No Maui Moisture does not have Silicones, Sulfates, Parabens. Which is a plus!

Maui Moisture come in six different formulas to pick from depending on hair’s type and texture: Heal & Hydrate + Shea, Curl Quench +Coconut Oil, Thick & Restore + Bamboo Fibers, Strength & Anti-Breakage + Agave, Smooth &Repair + Vanilla, Strength & Anti-Breakage + Rich Honey

I have only tried Curl Quench + Coconut & Smooth & Repair + Vanilla, and yes I love the product. The smell was fantastic. The consistency of the liquids was thick enough to emulsify where it will not slip out of your hand. It left my hair incredibly soft and manageable.Oh, and my curls were popping! I even flat ironed my hair after using Maui Moisture, and my hair had an incredible sheen.

Let’s not forget to discuss the price! Maui Moisture was fairly reasonable for a natural hair product running at approximately $9 per item.

You may have to work full time with few vacation days, but Maui Moisture has you covered. It does a great job at giving you and your hair that brilliant illusion of running on the beach with your hair flowing in the wind.
