For years I used Maybelline's Volum Express, just the "regular" version or whatever it is, the 3X volume. I bought this because it was on sale in my grocery store, but it's a mess. It really gets too much on my lashes at once, so they are super wet, and then it just gets all over my lids, lower lashes, contacts, etc.

It does make my lashes look crazy long, but I prefer to have a soft, thick fan of lashes, whereas this just separates them into spikes. It honestly just looks a bit ridiculous. I suppose it's good for stage makeup (though fake eyelashes are easier at that point).

It's a multi-tool process putting this stuff on, only possible with my metal eyelash comb. And once it dries, forget every getting it off. Even my eye makeup remover can't make it budge (but yes, it does work on most waterproof mascaras).

This mascara is out of control. I much prefer Maybelline's Full N' Soft and will stick with that.

Comments about Maybelline The Colossal - Waterproof Volum' Express Mascara, Very Black 240, 1 ea:

I recently re-discovered this mascara and I'd say it is just okay. The brush is great and gets just the right amount of mascara on the wand without gobbing it on. Also, I haven't had the problem of getting a big mascara mess all over my eyelids like I have had with Full 'N Soft. However, Full 'N Soft gives much more volume while Collosal is all about the length. I almost feel like I have too much makeup on with just one coat of this stuff because it looks so sever, and as someone else mentioned, doll-like. After curling my eyelashes this stuff makes them stick straight-up all day and seperates them nicely. It can clump and flake off but using an eyelash comb can help dramatically. Bottom line: I'm not so sure if this is the best mascara for daily use, but for lots of length and seperation it's a good purchase.

Comments about Maybelline The Colossal - Waterproof Volum' Express Mascara, Very Black 240, 1 ea:

I'm a huge mascara junkie and have way more mascara than I need from a ton of brands but I always, always keep coming back to Maybelline. There's something about the formula that keeps the mascara from drying out quickly like some other mascaras. Which is great, because it means no throwing out mascara after 2 months because it's all dried up.

This really perks up my eyes. It doesn't give me a full lash, it's more of a doll-like look, with long, separated small bunches. The wand head is a little big, so it's hard to get the ends, but otherwise it's a great mascara if you like the whole doll lashes look.

    Great for everyday use or going out. Does seem to smudge on the pillow at night if I don't remove my makeup, but otherwise my favorite go to mascara!

      Comments about Maybelline The Colossal - Waterproof Volum' Express Mascara, Very Black 240, 1 ea:

      I love this mascara. I have long, thick, lashes. Unfortunately, they are stick-straight and I have to curl them before I apply mascara. Most mascaras weigh down my already thick lashes and remove the curl. Not this mascara! After removing excess mascara on a tissue, it applies evenly and without clumps. It is truly waterproof, even through my hot yoga class and recently, through a wet and snowy 4 hour hike. It is a bit more dramatic than "Full n Soft" but definitely not crazy if applied correctly and it is more waterproof. Easy to remove when you want to. Bottom line, I love this mascara, it's even better than Dior!

      Comments about Maybelline The Colossal - Waterproof Volum' Express Mascara, Very Black 240, 1 ea:

      I saw all the wonderful thickening, lengthening mascaras on TV. I wanted lashes like that but preferred to have waterproof. This one fit the bill. The price is decent. It goes on evenly and only takes 2 coats to really show beautiful, noticeable lashes, but not quite like on TV. For me it is not waterproof. It smudges a lot, because I am always hot and my face gets moist. Unlike other waterproof mascaras I've used, it disappears overnight or makes raccoon eyes if I leave it on. It washes off way too easily for a waterproof product. I might buy it again, but probably try another product even if it is not waterproof.

        Better than many, not quite as good as some. Globs on eyelids & under eyes on application. Not difficult to remove.

          This mascara goes on evenly and slightly thicker so you only need a coat or two to have dramatic volume, but it dries quickly enough that it doesn't weigh down your lashes and pull out the curl. Even applying two or three coats won't clump or "glop" and I get at least one person a day asking me, "Are you wearing false eyelashes?"

          Also, it's enduringly waterproof and will last the whole day without flaking.

          I've tried almost every waterproof volumizing mascara on the market and this is my hands-down favorite. It's fantastic and I definitely recommend it.
