Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara Review, Swatches & EOTD

I like to wear mascaras only when I have to attend any function, party or wedding and when I really have to stay out for a long time. As I have long and thick lashes (or lazy bum :D), I mostly skip mascaras as a makeup routine. I bought this mascara from Medplusbeauty.com (they do have good service guys!) and quite liked it. Today I am going to discuss my experience with Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara.

MBT says-
Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara comes in a glossy bright yellow fat tube. The packaging is really attractive and chic. It has a blue rim at the center that makes it all the more pretty. It has a yellow screw lid that is quite tight and thus can be securely carried around in makeup bag without any fear of leakage or spillage.

The wand of the mascara is of fairly good size with lots of tiny and soft plastic type bristles. The consistency of the mascara is neither very thin nor very thick. I don’t feel the need to scrape off excess mascara on the top of the tube. It is easy to apply the mascara onto the lashes without getting blobs of mascara on the skin. I do feel the need to dip the brush again to coat the lashes of one eye sufficiently. I usually apply two coats to get the desired effect. The mascara does not clump, flake or smudge. It separates and adds volume to my lashes but not as much as the company claims. It is jet back in color and makes my eyes look awake. It lasts on my eyes the whole day until it is ready to be removed. Removal is a bit difficult with makeup removers but olive oil made my task easier. The mascara does not cause any adverse effects to my eyes.

Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara Review & EOTD
PROS:
Separates and adds volume to the lashes.
Easy to apply.
Does not clump or flake.
Good consistency.
It is waterproof.
Long lasting.
Reasonably priced.
Easily available.
Gives natural look to the lashes.

CONS:
Doesn't add 7x volume as per claimed by the company.

Overall Thoughts:
Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara is a great buy if you are looking for mascara that gives volume and natural look to the lashes. It is easy to apply and does not clump unlike other mascaras. It stays on my eyes the whole day without smudging. It is easy to remove with olive oil or any oil based eye makeup remover.  It does give volume to the lashes but not as much as promised by the company. Overall I am happy with the results it delivers and would recommend it to everyone.

  14. You have very pretty eyes and I am like you in the sense that I do not like applying mascara to my prepping up routine. I do it only if it's an absolute necessity. Infact, I have no mascara in my makeup kit since over a year and a half now, I felt I could go without it. That being said, I feel this is a really nice product. I didn't know that medplusbeauty had a good service, read so many bad reviews on them that I never tried them despite their great discounts. will check them out sometime soon then. very helpful review indeed, Megha :)

  17. If they add 7x volume the I would beat the camel in Shara desert race. This does make a difference and you are blessed with long lower lashes
