Collection Skyscraper Mascara Review

Today's post is going to be a review of a much talked about mascara from Collection (2000). I've actually been using this mascara for a while and I think it's brilliant! I actually bought this from Poundland after hearing so much about it.


However after the whole 'Stila Fiasco' I was a bit sceptical to use it as apparently the products are really old and discontinued. But, it turns out it was only in Poundland as Collection were re-branding, and needed to get rid of all the stock in order to bring out the new things.

Anyway, this mascara comes in a white rectangular tube with a really simple but effective design on the front. The wand is one of the synthetic plastic ones, which I've personally never tried before - I definitely prefer them to the typical 'brush' wands.


One side of the bristles is longer than the other, and to be honest, I don't know why, but it definitely makes my lashes look longer. I wouldn't say this is a volumising mascara, but it's amazing for length! I don't find this clumpy in any way, and is definitely 'ultra black' as the shade states.

I really recommend this mascara and have been using it religiously for weeks! This is what the mascara looks like on my lashes. This is just one coat, and I naturally have quite long lashes. But it's fair to say - this mascara really does work wonders!


So, if you're looking for a new budget mascara I'd really recommend this one! I'm not sure if you can still buy it in Poundland but I think it's available in Boots or Superdrug for around a fiver.

Have you tried this mascara?
What do you think of it?

      I think it'll be hard to find one equally as good around £5 :)

  10. Hi Becca, i noticed you signed up to my 'introduce yourself' page on my blog. Thank you xx
    Now onto the mascaras: i'm on a ban from buying mascara as i brought so many last year, i could never find a product i liked the best. Some wouldn't give me that longer lashes i wanted or would just clumped up lashes. In the end i gave up and waiting for a miracle to happen. Anyway the mascara look lovely on you xx
