Maybelline the Colossal Volum Express Mascara - Expert Review


Maybelline claim this mascara’s name speaks volumes about what it can do! We were all ears…and lashes! Let’s check the verdict…

Type of Mascara: Volumising

Colours Available: Glam Black, Glam Brown, Classic Black & Classic Brown

Price Range: Cheap

Product Claims:

This mascara creates 9x the volume instantly. It’s Megabrush + Collagen formula plump lashes one by one.

My Experience:

This mascara creates lashings of volume! The huge rubber brush seems to inject lashes with a dose of volumising magic. Unfortunately there are some less desirable results too – clumping. From the first coat, it’s a bit clumpy and with a second application I was hunting for my comb. However there is no doubt about it, this mascara creates unrivalled volume and doubles with each application. I would imagine volume-lovers could get past the clumps for results like that but I prefer more of an all-round good mascara.

Overall Rating: Average

Price: $5.99 at

Are you willing to put up with clumping for the sake of volume, length or curl?
