I really love this mascra! My favourtie thing about it is the fact that its waterproof, if it rains or anything it doesn't smudge at all! Also it isn't a nightmare to take off before you go to bed like some waterproof mascras! I think for what it is this product is really worth the money!
I read alot of reviews from women raving on about this mascara and I don't feel that it lived up to the hype. ( I bought this and the cat eyes one)
I put this mascara on one eye and the maybelline illegal length fiber extensions on the other, I honestly could not tell the difference between the two. Except for the fact that I had to apply this one atleast 5 more times.
It does give long lashes but they look somewhat spidery, which I don't like.
I followed the instructions on the back, then tried every tecnique under the sun but still got the same result. So overall I was pretty disappointed with this purchase. The only upside is that the waterproof aspect is really strong!
Resistance surprise for me
It´s great mascara. It´s really waterproof and you need good makeup remover to take it of - but it worth it! I have very long eye lashes with it and it also doesn´t stick them together. I have this mascara really long time now - I think about one year and of course it´s almost run out :D but the brush is same like when I first use it! Either it isn´t very clumpy at all - it really surprised me! I definitely recommend it to you ladies :)
I would give it six stars out of five.
This mascara is the first one I ever tried and I still use it to this day! I have "Asian lashes" so my lashes are unfortunately short, stumpy, and they fall flat. But this mascara does wonders for them! The waterproof formula holds my curl so much better than the regular (and I find that the regular has a strong odor to it). This mascara gives me volume and length. The application is very simple; I just curl my lashes and put two coats of this on. The formula I would say is on the drier side and it has a huuuuge brush, that's actually easy to work with. I've even had several people ask me if I'm wearing falsies!
Pros: volume, length, buildable, no clumps
Cons: leaves a light black ring at the bottom of my eyes even if I wear eye primer
Classic example of why I love Maybelline
I purchased this recently after trying Maybelline's new Mega Plush mascara. The mega plush was smooth and soft on the lashes but didn't provide any real impact for me. I picked this up and my "big black lashes" fix was met. This mascara has a thick bristled brush that grabs all of my lashes just fine. It doesn't clump up, and builds nicely. One coat usually does the job for my day time needs, and two coats amps up my night time look greatly! I'll still hold on to the Mega Plush mascara for the office look, but Colossal will be my go-to for everything else!
My aunt bought me this mascara when she went to singapore...I really like it at first because it gave me those really long looking lashes. But then at some point it like to clog up together and become a little tacky feeling. Also what the consistancy of the mascara is so thick and waterproof sometime it took me a hard time to erase it. But overall this is i think best for summer because of the waterproof feauture :)
This mascara is really good. It gives the right amount of product which allows you to coat several times to get the desire lashes. I like this one better than the non waterproof mascara. What I don't like about this mascara is the fact that it's hard to take off. Even after using Makeup remover cleanser I still find myself picking my lashes and Black residue will come off. But aside from that, It's a great product! I would recommend along with a strong waterproof makeup remover. :)
This is a pretty amazing mascara. I haven't had it in well over a year but I remember how impressive it was to use. However, something funky happened with my tube. It didn't want to twist shut. The mascara dried out very quickly because of that. I don't know if the one that I had was defective, but this is what deferred me from repurchasing.
Great Scott, I never, ever knew my lashes could look like this without fake eyelashes. Wow. I just simply curl my eye lashes with a curler, put two coats of this baby on and then I look like I have the most amazing, biggest, longest eye lashes ever! How did I live without this mascara before? I am amazed! A neat trick I learned to really curl your eye lashes with an eye lash curler is to heat it up slightly with a blow dryer and then using the slightly warm eye lash curler to curl your lashes! It really does work and holds a curl well without mascara but The Colossal mascara helps out A LOT. I have almost non-existent lashes and this has done wonders for me. It's a very thin and seemingly watery consistency and it takes a little bit to dry but it's totally worth it. It really does lift my lashes and give them unreasonable volume so I am so very pleased with my products. I'll never use another mascara. I'm in love.
One of the better drugstore mascara I have tried
I really like this mascara because it gives me the length/definition I need in my lashes and it holds a curl really nice and it lasts all day. This mascara is definitely buildable for thickness in my opinion and there is seriously no clumping whatsoever with this mascara which I love! I find Maybelline mascaras to be one of the better brands if you're looking for a drugstore one!
