Mascaras are all that we need to amp up our eye game, agree? It’s that one thing which is very necessary to complete a glam eye look. Today, I am reviewing Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara Waterproof which I’ve been using lately, keep reading to know how it fared 🙂 –
Price- INR 350/-
About- For dark, sweeping lashes choose The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. Its unique formula plumps lashes, one by one, giving your eyelashes dramatic volume. Apply on a single coat and voila! You’re ready for the party!
Here’s why you’ll love it-
• Comes with a patented MegaBrush which prevents clumping
• Has a unique formula that plumps eyelashes
• Comes in waterproof and washable variants
• Can be easily removed with soap and waterMy Take on Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara Waterproof- Maybelline’s The colossal volum’ express mascara basically comes in 2 variants- Washable and waterproof. Maybelline colossal washable mascara was an holy grail product for me for a good long time. The washable one has already been reviewed on the blog, you can check it here. It comes in a bright and poppy yellow colored cylindrical tube. Both of them (washable and waterproof) look identical except the change in font color, purple one is for washable whereas the turquoise one is for waterproof. I love the formula as it dries up quickly without having to wait. The mascara wand is very handy and the thin bristles do a good job in covering my lashes with the formula. I am a 2-coat person and it has never made me face the mascara-clumping issue, I have normal lashes and it gives me a natural effect with eyelashes blackened, slightly lifted and curled. The staying power is commendable for a drugstore product. It doesn’t come off until you move your bum and put some efforts 😀 .
It’s the monsoon season and I am wearing it in a carefree-way for everyday wear as I have no fear of getting raccoon eyes (all thanks to its waterproof nature). It does settle on the area above my eyelids when it’s too hot outside or if I wear it all day long. People crib about the removal of this waterproof mascara but I use Bioderma Micellar Water to clear it off and it comes off totally with just few efforts. It does settle in under-eye area while removal is in-progress but that’s the case with all the mascaras I have used in my life.I envy people who are blessed with long eyelashes; they will like it more for the price it comes at and the plumping dramatic effect it would create for them. The life-span of a mascara is very short, make sure you screw the cap tightly after every usage to prevent it from drying. If you are tight on budget you should buy it without giving a second thought. Maybelline products are available on discount every now and then on Nykaa, Purplle, Amazon and other such sites, so if you are planning to pick it up in your next haul keep an eye for offers so that you get bang for your buck 🙂 .
Have you used this mascara from Maybelline? Which mascara tops the list of your favorites?
A good difference can be seen in the appearance of your lashes with 2 coats of this mascara. It doesn’t create a fake lashes effect on me, but yes it lifts up my lashes to a level that looks good. For a better effect, curl your lashes before you put this on. If you are on budget, you can’t get anything better than this.
