    Comments about Maybelline Volum'Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara:

    This mascara has such great potential, but just doesn't hit the mark. When I use this mascara on my bottom lashes, by end of the day, I have black all under my eyes & there is very little mascara left on my bottom lashes. I'm used to waterproof mascara being pretty much locked in place after it's applied so I was shocked! I can use it on my upper lashes ok, but never on the bottom unless I want raccoon eyes. (I don't rub my eyes & my other waterproof mascaras like the Maybelline One by One or the Rocket have never done this.)

      Comments about Maybelline Volum'Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara:

      I think I've been through about four tubes of this! It doesn't dry out quickly and the formula is just the right balance of thickness without being clumpy or flaky. It applies really smoothly. The brush is a bit fat - so I always apply "looking down" into a mirror, or if I don't have a smaller mirror - I tilt my head waaay back to get to all the lashes. Easy on, and easy off. Doesn't create a weird flared shape - just looks classic and full, keeps the curl in. Takes the guesswork out of a drugstore mascara. I got tired of purchasing Dior Show, because I received a tube or two in a row that seemed old or just dried out when it was brand new to me. Just not worth the money for me any more -in spite of the lovely rose scent. ;)

        Comments about Maybelline Volum'Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara:

        This mascara is by far one of my favorites.

        The only complaint I have is that once it gets a bit older, it will start to flake and it can get a bit clumpy if you apply too much.

                  I live in the South where it is HUMID and my lashes tend to straighten-out. This keeps my curly lashes curly, and this does not flake. This is the first mascara I've found comparable to my favorite DiorShow Catwalk mascara (for a fraction of the cost). :^)
