Big Shot is an instant Holy Grail mascara for me. I want my lashes to look long, voluminous, and defined. And to get that look it normally takes a lash primer and two different mascaras. Big Shot cut my lash routine in half. The formula isn't too dry or too wet. I'm able to let it completely dry, and it will continue to build up without clumping. The wand isn't overloaded with product so you're able to get a nice even coat without having to clean off the brush. The want isn't fancy or gimic-y. It really hugs each and every lash and separates them nicely. Big Shot doesn't claim to curl or anything but I get serious bend after using this. If the A+ performance of Big Shot hasn't sold you, the packaging is super glam. It's also a drugstore product, so it's affordable and easy to get ahold of. Big Shot is the new gold standard and I highly recommend. I also know I will be repurchasing when the time comes. *I received Big Shot Colossal free via Influenster for testing and review.
It smells of a sweet vanilla. Doesn't have much of a taste. Compared to some products, it wasn't very pigmented (at least in the shade that I was sent complimentary). BUT it is one of the best glosses I've tried in terms of moisturization. It's a little sticky, but nothing out of control. When the product wears off after a few hours, my lips were left soooo soft and plush. That alone is why I'll repurchase. That and the fact that the applicator is MASSIVE. Seriously, buy it. You'll see what I mean.
Aredell Lashes are super affordable and a great quality. You can reuse them a few times before they need to be replaced. The band is nice and flexible. The band is also thin (great for blending into your natural lashes). A great variety of styles. Love these!
