Happy happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for voting on the next reviewed mascara. The Colossal one this time around but don’t worry Define-A-Lash ladies….I’ll be reviewing that one next week. So did the Colossal live up to its name?
Maybelline the Colossal
Price: 6 out of 5 (I got it for $6.99 from CVS)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 3 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims: “Megabrush instantly zooms on 9x the volume in one stroke, without clumps.”
The truth: Hey hey!! I like this! As a waterproof mascara, it is a bit difficult to take off but it’s not half bad.
What I loved about it: It really separated my lashes. Like amazingly. I love it!
What I didn’t like: The brush is a little bigger than I like. And it is a bit flaky, but nothing that I can’t handle.
Overall: I am really becoming a huge Maybelline mascara fan. Seriously. XXL Curl Power so far is my HG mascara but the Colossal can easily take that position. It is a really good mascara. I found that aside from getting my lashes “out there”, it also helped separating them. Did I experience clumping? Noooope! For $6.99, I can’t complain. Big ups to SlvrLips for letting us know about this baby there. I am extremely impressed and recommend this mascara to those looking for volume and length. If you are in dire need of some curl too, I suggest pumping a good eyelash curler on your lashes prior to mascara application. I’ve heard some people are hatin’ on the Colossal because of the unattractive color of the tube, but I think that’s a crazy reason to not try something new. This mascara could come in a puke green tube with gray and yellow spots and I wouldn’t care. If it works….it works!
Per request….here’s a video review of the mascara as well.
What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? Do mascara packagings turn you off? If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com
