Collection 2000 "Does It All" Waterproof mascara

I look for two things in a mascara; volume and the ability to hold a curl. My eyelashes, like shown in the before photo, are really flat so need a really strong mascara to hold it up. Luckily, for me, this mascara did just that.

The brush is made of rubber and has thick bristles which separate the lashes as the mascara is applied which helps to avoid clumping. The mascara is jet black  which makes the white part of your eyes appear whiter and your eye colour "pop" a bit more. The bottom lashes were lengthened and didn't clump which is very rare with rubber bristle mascaras; I was pleasantly surprised.

My only problem with this product is that it isn't massively lengthening, it does a fair job but it doesn't have the "wow" factor on that front. That being said I absolutely adore this mascara for £3.99 it's exceptionally good quality. It's definitely going to become one of my make-up bag staples; even if it is just for my bottom lashes.
