I am not very brand loyal when it comes to mascara, but I do tend to like Maybelline's offerings the most out of brands in a similar price range. So I was easily persuaded to give the Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express mascara a try when I saw it on offer. The usual price is around £6.99...

I had a smile on my face when I got home from work yesterday, as in my usual pile of bills and junk mail I had a small package awaiting me. I knew I want expecting anything so I opened it rather quickly to see what was inside. I was quite chuffed to say it was brand new mascara from Maybelline...

ConsSlightly exaggerated volume claims

Needing a new mascara recently I did the usual and scooted to my local Superdrug store to check out what they had on offer. As mascara junkies like myself will know; the world of mascara can be a somewhat boggling one, particularly with all the various types including those that promise to create...

“Colossal I think not!”

ProIt is waterproof and has staying power

ConsDoesnt give what it promises in my view

For me, one of the first things I notice about people is their eyes. You can tell a lot about someone from their eyes and as a girl I like to use dramatic eye make-up to exaggerate the eye area and play around with lots of different coloured eye shadows and creams. This also includes a lot of...

I went to Boots after work with the soul intention of buying a new mascara, £35 worth of products later I left the shop, included in my purchases was Maybelline Colossal Mascara. The mascara comes attached to a piece of card which is quite unusual for the products in boots. The colour scheme of...

ConsEr none!

The one thing I really hate to buy myself is mascara. It doesn't seem to matter what the claims are that manufacturers make I have quite thin and rather straight eyelashes and very sensitive my eyes are. So I never spend alot on mascara which is probably why I don't achieve the best results but...

ConsNone.

Advantages: Nice lashes Disadvantages: None. I have loads of make-up bags filled with a variety of different make-up items and different brands. One make-up bag is filled with a load of different mascara's, this is just one of them. The main reason I bought this is because of the bright yellow...

'Maybe she's born with it, maybe she's Maybelline' The name Maybelline is actually made up from Maybel, the name of TL Williams' (who started the company in 1915) sister and line from vaseline, the product his sister mixed with coal dust for her lashes. I didn't know this until looking up the...

“My favourite casual mascara”

published 12/08/2014

ProReasonable price, makes lashes look long and thin

ConsTakes a bit of wiping to get off

Volum Express I tried this mascara on a whim last year as it was on offer and I generally find Maybelline to be a good quality brand. There are several versions of this mascara - cats eye, smokey eye, waterproof and colossal. I've tried them all and this review is of my favourite (and the one I'm...

Proseparating, reasonably priced

Consa few coats needed for even a subtle mascara look

I bought this mascara a few months ago. I didn't really need a new mascara, but I wanted to buy a new one to try out as I fancied a change. The most likely brand choices were going to be Rimmel and Maybelline. I had used Maybelline's Rocket mascara a while ago and was impressed with it so I...

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara..... I can never find a mascara that does do exactly what it claims to do.
