I had been wanting to try Collection 2000 Big Fake mascara for a while as I had heard Pixiwoo talk about it quite a lot and use it in their tutorials. I tweeted and asked what people experience had been, most people said it was good but not amazing but at only £5 I had to try it for myself.
Collection 2000 claim that this mascara

New Collection 2000 Big Fake False Lash Effect Mascara is set to re-create the false lash look with the mere wave of a wand. Achieve phenomenal length and volume! Available in black, ultra black and brown."
The brush on this mascara is huge! Personally I like big brushes but if you do have shorter lashes I think you would find it hard to apply this mascara. The packaging is quite nice nothing overly amazing but still very nice and sleek for under £5.
I bought the mascara in black although it does come in Ultra Black and brown. Although this isn't the colour Ultra Black I'm sure you will agree it is still very dark and I don't think there will be a huge difference between this and the Ultra Black.
I do like this mascara, it does add some volume and length, I also love how black it is! I don't really like that it is a tubing mascara as I think it doesn't add quite enough volume and I don't think that their claim to a False Lash Effect is accurate.
It is waterproof and does last a whole day on me although I wouldn't say it holds a curl very well and my mascara does look far more impressive when first applied.
Would I recommend it?
Yes, at £5 you can't go round and its definitely worth a try! I think its perfect for day time and even night but if you are looking for amazing volume then maybe its worth using a different mascara (something like MF 2000 Calorie) I think this is the best mascara for under £6 and one I think I will always have in my collection.
This mascara is available from Boots, Superdrugs, Asda, Tesco ETC and retails for £4.99- A total bargain!
