Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Only kind I use!
I started using this mascara about 5 years ago with a coupon I had and it is now the only kind I use! I absolutely love the brush applicator, it goes on smooth and it is actually water proof! I use lotion to remove rather than soap. It is affordable and I look fresh all day :) I do use a lash primer that keeps my lashes rejuvenated and helps the application last through the day.
Most Helpful Critical Review Mascara easily wears off!
I was really disappointed with this mascara. Each time I've worn the mascara I've gotten huge black pigment of mascara under my eye by the end of the day. It looks so gross and unprofessional, I'm so disappointed when I come home or go to the bathroom and realize I look like a hot mess because I have huge bits of mascara under my eye--kind of surprising because this is supposed to be waterproof so you'd think the formula would have better wear, but it definitely doesn't!

It give a tinted volume natural lash look

This mascara is not good. It smudges under my eyes and it's supposed to waterproof. I have tried other mascaras that weren't waterproof but even they didn't smudge as much as this one.

Dried out my lashes and left dark circles around my eyes. Would not buy again

IT WAS DRY TO APPLY THEN AT THE END OF THE NIGHT I TOOK IT OFF WITH EYE MAKEUP REMOVER AND IT TOOK OFF MY LASHES AND FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS I HAD SMUDGE AND RACOON EYES - WORST EVER
Mascara was used 6 times / contents were dried up inside
mom from PA
mascara was only good for 5 to 6 uses due to mascara contents being dried up inside.

Still look like a raccoon at the end of my shift. Sad this didn't work out for me;(

I have been using this product for years. It a was my favorite mascara until recently. I noticed the writing is a different color but didn't think much of it. This new formula does not hold my lashes up. The curl goes away as soon as I apply it just like a water based formula. I love waterproof because the oils keep my lashes curled but this isn't happening anymore. Please change it back to the old one.

Been using it for years always get compliments
Used to be better
Ella from NY, NY
I'm not sure if the formula changed but this mascara used to be my favorite. With the new tube I bought, it was very liquid and thin at first and it was really hard to get a good amount of mascara on my lashes without doing 3 layers and waiting for them to dry in between. This is good if you like thinner mascaras, but not if you are looking for a thick, "colossal" look.
Please bring back the OLD formula!
LadyKathryn from Jacksonville, FL
I've used this mascara for years and hate the new formulation. Halfway through the day my eyelashes flatten out and lose their curl - this NEVER happened with the old version. Please bring back the non-hydrofuge version.
The old formulation was better than luxury brand mascaras - it was the absolute BEST.
I'm so sad I have to find a new go to mascara. :(
Maybelline - feel free to Contact me if you have any specific questions.

I have long lashes, but they grow straight down. This is the best mascara for keeping the curl locked in and never flaking. I have used the waterproof version for years and am continuously impressed with how consistently great it is! Also, I wear 2-3 thin coats and baby shampoo takes it off for me at the end of the day without irritating my eyes.
It used to be the best
Tabi85 from Switzerland
I've been using this mascara for most of my adult life. It was visibly better than any high fashion mascara. But more than a couple years ago, something had changed in the formula. The maskara that once lasted all day long, now leaves a trace below the eyelashes after 3-4 hours.
As I work in a high-paced environment, sometimes I forget to check myself in the mirror. I cannot count how many times I've seen a patient, looking like a panda. I still use it because it's still better than most maskaras. But it is not as good as it used to be.
Does exactly what it says
Idk from Ca
This product was really good. It's easy to apply. Didn't even have to use curler. Great for literally any occasion.

This product was actually impressive. Didn't even have to use curler. Description of product is 100% true. Really nice and totally worked out for me.
Smudges with bottom lashes
E from California
It has a nice dry ish formula for people with lashes that can't hold a curl, makes them stay curled and look really nice and separated but doesn't really give volume but more-so length. It's great for bottom lashes but it kinda smudges specks underneath but they're easy to wipe away but still wish it didn't do that
Claudia from California
I've using this mascara for a good 6 years. I like it because it doesn't uncurl/bring down your lashes after you just curled them.
Bring back the old formula
Rafaela from Ohio
Loved this mascara before but just bought a new one and was very disappointed!! I feel lost now that I have to find a new mascara that gives me volume and lengthens my lashes.
Lilly from Racine
I love this I've bought this product like 4 times and I've loved it each time
BRING BACK OLD FORMULA
texasbama from Waco, Texas
The waterproof colossal mascara used to be my HOLY GRAIL but you discontinued it and replaced it with this awful formula. It's smudgy and doesn't hold and lengthen the lashes like it used to. I am so disappointed and frustrated!
Waterproof .... no!
Stellar star from Rupert Idaho 83350
This product leaves black under my eye like it melts off my eyelashes. I've tried others from maybelline and never had an issue... Not impressed
New formula is very disappointing
JZchi from Chicago, IL
What did you guys do to the formula!? The new version is terrible. It does not hold the lashes up or thicken the lashes like the old version. Bring back the old!

ive been using this for years and i love it so much i swear buy it
For long lashes!
Kim from Houston, TX
My eyelashes are naturally long and straight. This waterproof mascara is the only one that will hold the curl all day long while looking voluminous. For sure my holy grail.
Yvonne from Apple Valley Ca
Great mascara. Will buy again.
I would use this product again
Brick from Oregon
I have loved this because I have white lashes and it stays on even when my eyes water.
