  • "This is an awesome and easily my new favorite mascara!!!! It really fans out, separates, and makes lashes look a lot longer! I'm thinking the brush picks up on "invisible" lashes because when I use this, I see a whole lot more lashes than I usually see without any mascara or when Ive used other mascara's, so they kind of make me feel like I put on some falsies with all the "extra" lashes! Kind of cool. Creates a lot of volume without any excessive clumping and doesn't weigh lashes down. Definitely would recommend!!!!" in 1229 reviews
  • "I love it came and I love micaja with my eyelash mascara is really fabulous the eyelashes are super long, with volumes and very separate, the mask is a waterproof so I can use to go to the pool or when I want my The eyelashes are more beautiful for a lot more time, the packaging is beautiful is golden and very very beautiful, thanks to a poor influent and very very good. I am one of those girls who love to lift their eyelashes a lot, I had used other maybelline masks before and they are certainly the best and I liked it a lot because the duration is great and I love it for special occasions. #MusesOfInfluenster" in 278 reviews
  • "This is my go-to drugstore mascara. I always have one of these on hand. It does seem to dry out rather quickly and can smudge a bit, but it's an ANYTIME mascara, goes on evenly, lengthens, and has a great brush regardless. This Maybelline mascara is a must-have in your beauty stash. " in 250 reviews

This is a good mascara from the drugstore. It isn't holy grail status or anything, but it worked well, and I'm glad I tried it. The tube lasted the average three months before drying out, which is nice. It's an easy to use wand that fits easily into my upper and lower lashes. It builds a good amount of volume without making the lashes overly clumpy. The formula is very dark and doesn't make my lashes look grayish. The main issue I have with this is that it's not as lengthening as I would like. It also flakes a little more than I thought it would, which is annoying, but not uncommon for a washable mascara. So while I strongly prefer Maybelline Lash Sensational® Washable Mascara, this isn'5t a bad buy.

This is hands down the best mascara i have ever used.  I compared it to the Better than Sex mascara and this is is better for a third of the price.  it does not smudge or flake and lasts all day as opposed to the better than sex which i find myself always having to wipe off under my eyes because it runs and flakes.  Also one coat is really all you need but if you're trying to go for an extra bold look the second coat will satisfy that look.  I have been asked if i am wearing false eyelashes when i wear this one.  i would not trade it for any other mascara.  this will be my forever mascara! xoxo

So, the reason I got this is because Maybelline will forever have my heart. I like that the formula was good and that it didn’t run or flake. The thing I really didn’t like is how bad it clumped on the spoolie AND on my lashes. This was so hard to get to work!! Even if I went to wipe product off the bristles would start clumping together. It was a bit of a disappointment. After awhile though I found that it works okay on my bottom lashes. So when I work on clients I usually use this for bottom lashes only and it hasn’t given me any problems.

I, probably like you, bought this mascara around the time of their huge when not a single beauty guru would shut up about it. I must say, during the first couple applications it did wonders to my lashes. They had length, thickness, and were separated nicely. It didn't flake throughout the day and I had thought I had found my new holy Grail mascara. However, there is one major flaw. IT IS SO DRY. it's so dry to the point that the tube only last me those first couple applications. Not worth it. Maybelline Volum' Express® The Colossal Big Shot™ Washable Mascara

I almost exclusively use Maybelline mascara. Even though I’ve tried other, more expensive brands, I always come back to this drugstore favorite. And for good reason! I have dark lashes, but I’m always searching for more volume and length. I mix up my mascara pretty often and right now I’m using this brand. It provides a fair amount of “oomph” and I love the drama of the “blackest black” shade, but I would like to see it give my lashes more length and create the illusion that they are thicker. Overall, recommend!

Maybelline mascaras are my very first mascaras. Maybelline makes affordable products with great quality and performance. As a student they never failed me. Still I pick up a lot of Maybelline products and they still are great quality products. This mascara from Maybelline is really good it gives volume and length to my lashes and doesn't get clumpy in one coat and looks quiet natural hf but if I try to add 2nd coat it does gets little clumpy. It's quiet easy to remove as well. Overall a great mascara at affordable price.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good mascara but it isn't great. Its very affordable and easy to find in drugstores. It makes my lashes look longer and fuller but wasn't quite what I was expecting. I noticed that it would get all over the place around my eyes if my eyes happened to water or run. I think there are much better mascaras from Maybelline and other brands. I don't really recommend it because it isn't anything special. I think the Maybelline Colossal mascara is a much better product for the same price.

I always love Maybelline mascaras, and this one did not disappoint! The brush shape was a little different than what I expected, but actually worked great when I wiped off the excess mascara. My lashes were very separated and looked long with only 2 coats. It never flakes throughout the day and my lashes stayed curled. It’s also very easy to take off with soap and water or a makeup wipe.

Primero que nada quiero aclarar que maybelline hace mi pestañina favorita!! Compre esta para probar un producto nuevo y quisas mejor que la que e estado usando por los ultimos 3 años. Esta pestañina cuando la aplico en mis pestañas si noto que las hace mas gruesas claro entre mas capas agregas mucho mas, yo e aplicado asta 3 capas y mis pestañas llegan a el punto que se miran demaciado boluditas,gorditas y duras y como que se juntan y es dificil separarlas normalmente con mis otras mascaras de pestaña aplico 3 capas y no hacen eso. El aplicador ami no me gusta tanto siento que no tiene los pelitos/herdas o como les llamen tan largas como ami me gusta.el color yo elegi el mas obscuro y la verdad si es super obscuro eso si me gusto. El empaque es muy lindo color oro tipo espejo con letras moradas. Me costo aprox $7 dlls en walmart si no me equiboco. Lo estoy todavia usando trato de usar solo 1 o 2 capas y aplico otra pestañina para ber si asi me funciona mejor. Suerte!!
