I've used a lot of mascaras over the years and I've decided that volumising mascaras are best for me since I already have really long lashes. So, if you want long spidery lashes, this isn't the mascara you should buy, because this is a volumising mascara.
I love this mascara (the washable variant since I hate waterproof mascara) because it WORKS. Different mascaras have different types of wants depending on what they want to do to your lashes, but a lot of mascaras CLAIM to do something but end up doing nothing coz their wands are just plain normal straight wands. This mascara has a wand that is nice and fat in the middle and tapers towards the bottom. This is the best type of wand to separate your lashes and give them the effect of volume.
Althouhg the washable variant isn't waterproof, it stays all day long and doesn't budge unless you remove it.
At the price of around 400 rupees, this is a great affordable mascara to have in your kitty.

Let me tell you first thing that waterproof mascaras are great but they're a pain in a** to remove! So I bought the washable variant.
The fat tube feels good to hold in hands hehehe ! Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The wand feels luxurious. Does the job of separating lashes quite well which gives an illusion of volume. I'm a sucker for voluminous lashes and this one's going to be favourite for a while ! Even though colored mascaras are quite a fad now a days , I prefer black mascara because of it's wearability . And Maybelline Colossal volume express mascara is of a nice jet black pigment which I absolutely love. If you're confused about which mascara to buy , just go for this one without second thoughts.
I had never used mascara before. And now I feel incomplete without it. After a lot of comparison between this and the hypercurl, I decided to go for this because this was a dupe of the Loreal Volume Million Lashes mascara. I got a waterproof variant at almost 25% off. Now let's get into the detailed review!
-There is only one shade i.e. black, in two variants- Waterproof and Washable. I have no experience with washable mascara and since this was my first one, I decided to give the waterproof variant a try.
The waterproof variant retails for Rs 425
******My views on claims******
-It works magic on tiny lashes. YES, IT DOES
-Patented MegaBrush + unique Formula plump lashes one by one. TRUE!
-Even dramatizes corner lashes other brushes miss—or worse, mess. YES!!!!
-Doesn't flake or clump. IT DOESN'T FLAKE BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO RUB YOUR EYES OR IT MIGHT CLUMP.
-Fragrance free. DOESN'T HAVE ANY FRAGRANCE BUT IT DOES HAVE A SMELL.
-Ophthalmologist and allergy tested. Safe for contact lens wearers. NOT SURE ABOUT LENS WEARERS BUT IT SURELY DOESN'T IRRITATE SENSITIVE EYES.
I immediately fell in love with the packaging! It comes in a yellow tube with a full contact brush. It doesn't have a curling wand nor do I have an eyelash curler. Yet it helps me achieve popping eyelashes. It gives my lashes a fan effect without clumping them together. It doesn't provide any dramatic volume to your lashes but gives them a beautiful coat and adds length. It is great for day looks since it adds the perfect amount of volume and length. It is a great buy if you are a beginner because Maybelline is an expert with Mascara. Not more than 1 coat is required. But, I like to sometimes go for 2 coats for a dramatic look. It coats the lashes without making them heavy! You might find it difficult to coat inner lashes, but with time and patience, it becomes easier. The wand has a tapering end. So, all you need is practice. It stays on me for the entire day. Even if it fades slightly, it won't flake or irritate your eyes.
-Full fan effect
-Only 1 coat is required
Clumps if you rub your eyes too hard
I think it is completely worth trying. I will always keep one in my bag and also try out other launches of Maybelline Mascara.

The Mascara is a budget buy mascara that lengthens your lashes without clumping them. It does not give you va-voom lashes, but it does a decent job enough. It is more lengthening than volumising. Obviously, you see better results if you use the product after using an eye lash curler. The applicator is a thick one with full bristles. The product is a really light formula that does not hinder you from blinking. Fair warning, after few hours it does flake and it is not at all waterproof. At the slightest contact with water, it will give you raccoon eyes.

maybelline is one of the brand which is impressive with its quality and the products are mostly affordable. this mascara gives an intense volume on my eye lash as my eye lash is normally so thin and can be barely seen. this helps me eye lashes to get intense volume with one use. i don't have to keep false lashes for volume. i rather prefer using this than using false lashes everyday.
its easy to use. definitely would buy again. maybelline has the best quality at affordable price which i am so thankful for as it fits my budget.

I love Maybelline products and none of the Maybelline products which I have bought until now have let me down. That’s the reason I bought the Maybelline mascara. I was sure Maybelline wouldn’t let me down this time too and it didn’t. Yess!
The colossal mascara comes in a catchy yellow tube packaging and has 2 variants- the washable one and the waterproof one. It has a thick, dense wand which is characteristic of volumizing mascaras. The bristles are soft and neatly arranged along the length of the wand. Because of the thick wand of the colossal volum mascara, one needs to be careful while coating the inner lashes and lower lashes.
The mascara formula is slightly on the drier side which is good because it doesn’t give wet smudges on the skin but it has its downside. It does not clump. Though if you want to apply more than 1 coat, apply the 2nd coat before the first one dries. I normally apply 2 coats.The pigmentation of this is great. It is jet black. The formula of maybelline colossal express mascara sets pretty fast so you don’t have to wait around for it to dry. It gives a boost of volume and length to the lashes which I love. And one of the best things about this mascara is that it doesn’t make the lashes stiff or weight them down.

I have used this mascara once or twice. I would say that it does not add any volume or length to my actual lashes. Also it is not that water proof. The wand is very uncomfortable to work with. Also it takes a lot of time to dry. It made my lashes lumpy and bad. There are many better mascaras in the market to work with. I was little disappointed after seeing the result of this product. As all products of maybelline are very nice and long lasting. It is definitely not at all worth its price. Would not recommend it.!

The black wand contains fine bristles that enhance lash volume.
The fine bristles coat every lash without causing clumps.
It lengthens and separates lashes and gives volume to otherwise limp
The consistency is good to work with, not very runny neither very thick.
It really opens up my eyes and doesn't get to messy.
The mascara lifts up the lashes for good 7-8 hours without any smudging.
Purpose: Volume, Length, Curl, etc
Waterproof or not?
Average shelf life? Does it dry out too fast?
What kind of wand does it have?
