Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara Review, EOTD

Article By Priya

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara is a recent product from the Maybelline family that I laid my hands on. With the much hyped “Maybelline Colossal Range” I was tempted to try this. 


Creates really big lashes, in one single coat
Patented Mega Brush + unique Formula plump lashes one by one
Available in 2 variants- washable and waterproof
Removes easily with soap and water
Move brush upwards from root to tip to plump individual lashes and achieve dramatic volume. Continue applying to lashes until you reach your desired look. Do not let it dry between coats. Repeat for lower lash line.

Price: Rs. 330 for 10.7 ml
Packaging: It comes in the typical yellow color Colossal Range packaging. The shape of the container is cylindrical/oval which is eye catching.

My Views:   

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara comes in two variants – Waterproof & Regular, I didn’t know this SA gave me the normal one. The shape of the Mascara wand is quite right, its thick at the start and it becomes narrow towards to end to cover the innermost of the eye lashes. The wand has a perfectly thick bristle which not only gives voluminous but also flares & lengthens my eye lashes. A single coat gives a natural look & multiple coats gives glam look.

The consistency of the Mascara is quite thick and I did feel that it becomes a bit clumpy while applying. I didn’t find it light on my eye lashes either. It was heavy and I can feel that I am wearing something on my lashes. Since, this one is not waterproof, the staying time is also less. It hardly stays for 2-3 hours. I also found it has a tendency to smudge if you accidently have the habit of touching your eyes like me. Another thing that didn’t work for me in this Mascara is the smell. It smells heavily of ink! I prefer my Mascara to be odorless.


Wand is of good shape covers the entire eye lashes well.
Gives voluminous results.
Attractive Packaging.


Not waterproof.
Doesn’t stay on lashes longer.
Heavy tendency to smudge.
Feels heavy on the lashes.
Can be clumpy.
Price (It think it costly given the cons above).

Final Verdict:

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara though gives the desired look but with all the cons mentioned above I don’t think it should be bought again.
