Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

We all have guilty pleasures, and this bright yellow, big brushed, weirdly spelt (volum'?) mascara is mine.


Having launched onto the market way back in 2008, The Colossal still continues to brag at being able to give lashes up to 7 times more volume thanks to its easy to load collagen enriched formula. Whilst I guess emphasis should be put on the words "up to", in general I think this mascara does a great job at bringing both a burst of instant length and thickness to the table. After all, here's what my lashes look like after just one quick coat:

Before:


After:



Whilst at times the large brush can be right royal pain to use, overall I've made my way though about 4 tubes of this formula. Leaving my eyes perfectly framed for anything up to 12 hours, I rarely - if ever - encounter any clumping or flaking thanks to the beautiful lightness of the texture. Granted it's not the most exciting or enjoyable product to use, but it does its job and it does it well. I just wish it looked a little bit prettier in my make up bag.

Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara is available from selected stores worldwide and boots.com for £7.19

Have you tried the waterproof version? Someone recommended it to me for holiday. I do not like the feel of holding those massive fat wands though - I wish that trend would bugger off!

I love this mascara and most of them by maybelline. Sometimes I find that this mascara can start to flake throughout the day. It may just be me :S

I hear so many people raving about this one, but I keep forgetting to try it out. After seeing how great it looks on your lashes, I'll be sure to pick it up next time I'm out! If I remember....haha. xxx

I heave heard good things about this mascara, but it is hard to top CoverGirl LashBlast Volume (spelled with an "e"... ahaha!)

Goodness 4 tubes? I don't think I have ever finished 1 tube of mascara - actually I lie I have finished tubes in plural of Clinique Naturally Glossy. Its the feel, if there is a hint of a crispy lash it is straight in the bin for me. Looks good on you and the yellow makes a change. Thanks for this. Jan

I've tried it and it's pretty nice! But I just didn't like the smell all too much! I'm now hooked to using Maybelline Falsies! ^_~

I am in love with the waterproof version of this mascara! It holds a curl amazingly well, lengthens and voluminizes.... I haven't used a better mascara yet :)
