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

I did a mini haul on items I wanted to try that beauty guru's / influencers recommended by reviewing the products online. One of the products reviewed was this Colossal Big Shot Mascara. So I bought it because I wanted to try it out for awhile & finally decided to give it a try. After trying it for the first time, I liked it enough to think it's a good mascara. Would I buy it again? maybe.. probably.. It's good at making the lashes look darker, popping them out more. It took only one coat on both eyes & I already saw the difference while wearing it. It took one coat & I saw instant results. I wanted to keep on going with the mascara & do one or couple more coats to really enhance & bring out my eyelashes alot more but it got clumpy on the eyelashes. I think it got clumpy because it's a fast drying mascara, so when coating, it's best to do it while wet not dry. That's just my opinion though, so you should do what's necessary that works for you. Overall I feel it's a good mascara & would reccomend 👍😊.

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!

i bought this product because makeup shayla was the face of it, but all in all probably the BEST mascara i’ve ever used. i have brown/green eyes and this mascara makes them pop. it separates my lashes so well and coats each of them evenly and thoroughly! i use this product everyday and with the $7 price point you can’t go wrong! i would HIGHLY recommend this to strangers as i already have gotten a few of my family and friends to use it and they LOVE it ❤️ Maybelline Volum' Express® The Colossal Big Shot™ Washable Mascara

I got this in one of my Influenster boxes. 
I use it for a fuller lash look, more for those night-time looks.
The only real problem I have with this product is that the gold on the outside of the product starts to peel.  I took it with me traveling in my cosmetic bag and when something leaked, the outside gold layer started to peel and got over everything.  Now I can no longer take it with me traveling or I run the risk of getting little gold flakes everywhere. I also have to be careful when I use it, because when I open it I'm left with those little gold flakes all over my hands.

Im in love with this mascara, one of the only mascaras i have given five stars to because its simple the best mascara out there in my opinion. This mascara add so much volume to my straight medium length lashes it incredible, with just one application you can see a difference in your lashes of course you have to apply it like it says to get that amazing volume . Since i have small eyes this mascara makes my eyes slightly a little bigger which is amazing.  If anybody were to ask me for a mascara that will give an amazing length,  I would instantly recommend this mascara without thinking twice. The one i have its almost over so you bet I'm gonna buy another one and you are right i will I'm just sooooooo in love with this mascara!!!!

This mascara is amazing and giving me long, full lashes. In that respect it is definitely a 5/5. The only downside for me is that it tends to smear on my face thru out the day. I'm not positive I would buy again simply because as the day goes on I have to keep rubbing under my eyes. BUT as far as giving me full beautiful lashes, it's amazing!
