    Comments about Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara:

    I've been using this mascara for years and I will never use a different one. At some points I tried to venture out and explore my mascara options but I always come back to this one. I have long, thin lashes so it's a struggle for me to find mascara that will not only thicken them without clumping, but also lengthen them (because who doesn't want even longer lashes, amiright?)without getting that spider leg look (gross). This one does it all. I can put a couple coats on for work or when I'm going for the natural look, or a bunch of coats when I'm feeling saucy or going out and want the focus on my eyes. I've even gotten some other friends to convert to this one. It's just the best.

      I was pleasantly surprised to find that this product met all of my requirements -- added volume, doesn't smudge easily, easily removed (remover wipes), and a non-curved brush.

        Comments about Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara:

        I'm always trying mascara, chasing that perfect look: full, long lashes that don't look spidery. I fell in love with Subversion, the Urban Decay lash primer, but the Perversion mascara was just too clumpy and wet. I've tried Benefit's They're Real! and Bare Escentuals' Buxom, and an assortment of other mascaras, but I couldn't find a happy medium. Either they'd give me length but no volume, vice versa, or they'd clump and flake horribly.

        On a whim (and it was on sale at ULTA), I tried the Volum' Express Colossal, and holy cow. I've found it. I've found the grail.

        Coupled with Smashbox's lash primer, Colossal goes on super easy, and the brush is perfect for getting every single lash. I get the perfect amount of volume and crazy length, and -- again, thanks to the brush -- it never clumps. Because I use it with a primer, it doesn't flake, either.

        I tried the Colossal Chaotic Lash to see if I'd get even more volume, but the brush isn't like the original Colossal and the mascara clumps horribly. From here on out, I'm sticking with the regular Colossal mascara. Bye bye, expensive brands -- Maybelline has got me covered!

          It's always worked very well for me, I've tried other brands of mascara throughout the year but this one has and probably always will be my to go.

          Comments about Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara:

          I am always on the search for a miracle mascara to give my lashes length and volume. I have bought high end mascaras and none are like this one. I don't think it gets enough recognition for what It does. It doesn't clump and the brush picks up every lash. It is also very easy to build up for more volume. Best of their line.

                I heard so many good things but dont waste you money.. this did not work for me and I tired so hard to like it! It is a very wet formula and theres no way of not gettong this all over your lids when applying.. makes me look like 9 have five wimpy lashes.. even made my eyes itchy. I dont see what everybody sees in this mascara!
