Collection 2000 Big Fake False Lash Effect Mascara

First of all I'm going to apologise - I seem to do this a lot on here but this review like many others is long overdue. I bought this mascara quite a while ago know but I've only pulled it from my massivo mascara collection in the last couple of months. I've had a good chance to give it a fair crack of the whip so now it's time to tell you what I think :) (excuse wobbly framing on the pic ;)

I have to say my previous experience with a Collection 2000 mascara wasn't a great one, I didn't get on with Collagen Curl at all, but this one Big Fake False Lash Effect makes big promises and claims so me being me I was drawn in and had to try it.

In a funky black, red, white and clear tube, this mascara has a huge fibre brush - which I believe is now red for some reason- Collection 2000 claim that this mascara has their biggest brush ever and it's certainly a biggie

The colour I chose was of course No. 17 Ultra Black and it's a good quality black , but how does it perform when its applied to your peepers?

Well first of all application, like most big brushes I think you need to be careful with this for the main upper lashes it great, and covers easily but for the lower lashes, and the inner corners you have to be careful otherwise you will touch your skin. The consistency of the mascara at first was a little bit runny, in the middle of the usage it was great and towards the end of its life which is where it is now it's started to go a bit dry, and flaky when you apply it

According to Collection 2000 this mascara uses an exclusive 3D tube technology that wraps around your lashes creating a false lash effect without clumping or smudging - well what do you think ?



Well they certainly look better don't they - 2 coats here and my lashes certainly look longer and spidery, but what is that I spy, look closely and there tiny little clumpy, dots :( it definitely needs a comb through if you use more than one coat. To be fair this is a mascara I would say in the last month of it's life but still the little bits are there, and I've found it increasingly drying. Another slight criticism of this mascara is the fact that is smudges really badly - I haven't included any pictures here I don't want to scare you but after the last couple of weeks of uses especially it has been panda eye central not an attractive look.

To be honest that's the one thing that would stop me buying this again, I like the effect but the smudging just isn't pretty, I would be interested in trying it again if they introduced a waterproof version though and I definitely prefer it to Collagen Curl. Collection 2000 Big Fake False Lash Effect Mascara comes in a choice of three shades and retails at around £4.99 for an 8ml tube from Boots, Superdrug and selected other chemists and supermarkets.

  1. I looked at this but didnt buy it because I wantd to invstigate. I always end up with panda eyes :( x

  2. I had the lengthening one in the orange tube but it doesn't do anything, it ust makes my lashes a bit darker. I've really fallen out of love with Collection 2000, I used to use them all the time in high school! x
