  • "Good price! leaves no clumps very volumizing and leagthening very nice good dupe for dior show" in 2922 reviews
  • "I absolutely love this mascara I always use the waterproof version because it keeps my curl for longer. I have very long lashes but they stick straight out. So I curl them and then put a couple of coats of the Colassal on and am always happy with the results! I love the large brush, and the tube lasts me for a few months which is practically unheard of in my experiences. I also love the brown black version of this mascara, it is a beautiful in between color that works perfectly for day." in 678 reviews

My friend bought me this mascara as a gift. She swore it was the best mascara on earth - she was right! I typically use high end mascaras and have tried so many. I bought YSL Babydoll and Lancome Hypnose. I had lash extensions and they left my lashes so bad I wanted to cry. I got Grande Lash from Sephora to make them grow and combined with this mascara they almost look longer than when I had extensions. I love that when you wash it off it does not leave too much residue. I can't wait to buy my next bottle. I hate how high end mascaras dry up and run out so quickly. This tube has lasted me more than two months and I use a lot of mascara!

I think this is a decent mascara buy, given you can grab it at a drugstore, Target, or CVS. It isn't super pricey (compared to something like  tarte Tarteist™ Lash Paint Mascara which is what I normally buy for mascara). 

It just doesn't really do as much as I would like it to. I love a good dramatic eye with thick, long lashes and I usually end up dipping into other mascara's besides this one to achieve that look. If your goal is more of an everyday, natural mascara, then this is probably a good purchase. I don't wear this when I'm going out at night or at dates, but it works to complete my office look.

I have naturally tiny eyelashes but i must say i was very disappointed by this product. I bought it hoping to look for a less expensive alternative to what i normally use, however i can see why it is low price. The only real difference I saw was it made my eyelashes darker which is why I am giving it 2 stars. It is convenient to pick up and you can't really beat the price but I have had better results with Covergirl and other Budget brands. This product might work for someone who has naturally long eyelashes but I do not and therefore do not recommend this product.

So proud of this great drugstore mascara brand and it’s one of my favorites also. It lengthens and separates my lashes really well. It’s inexpensive and the value is wonderful for what you actually pay. I could use this everyday. It’s a beauty staple I like to keep in my beauty bag at all times. I also like to mix this with other mascaras that I get from Sephora, since this one has collagen and I feel it gives some amazing volume in combination with others like Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. That combination for me gives that awesome falsies look that everyone most desires.

I am OBSESSED with this mascara. It is my absolute go to. It’s cheap, long lasting, not flakey, and makes my eyelashes look amazing. I’m constantly asked if they are fake. I apply 2-3 coats, shifting the brush left to right as I apply from the base of the lash to the tip. I applied this mascara this morning, 3 coats on a moving train. If I get it on my skin, I simply use a damp tissue to easily wipe off. I love love love this mascara and can’t imagine not having it. A definite staple in my makeup bag.

My makeup look consists a dramatic dark lash, upon going to the drug store to purchase a new mascara, I thought this mascara would would well for me, since it said colossal lashes and the packaging intrigued me, I was looking for something I haven't used before.So, I ended up buying the mascaranin black and I only used it a handful of times, because it would flake so much around my eyes and cheeks. I was not happy with the end result. I would not recommend this product to anyone, unless you want mascara flakes on your face.

This mascara honestly might have been the worst mascara I have ever tried. Ever! I don't know if I just had a bad one but it was pretty dry the first time I opened it. It left my lashes extremely clumpy when they were clean and had no previous mascara left on them. They looked like spider legs and I threw away the bottle right away.

There are so many better mascaras worth buying, even at the same price point as this mascara. I will never go back to Myabelline mascaras, I've had bad experiences with so many of them!

This mascara gave me mad lashes! It looks like false lashes but a little clumpy. This mascara definitely gets the job done and is a go to mascara for only under $5. It curls, volumizes, and lengthens better than most high end mascaras. It lives up to the "colossal" name. #mybeautyawards #reviewcrew18

Maybelline volume express the colossal washable mascara in jet black is one of my favorite value mascaras that Maybelline offers without the heavy buildup that doesn’t easily wash off and can sometimes be damaging or just pull out your eyelashes. This mascara did not do any of that it was a lightweight worked perfect gave me full volume lashes and was eight absolutely stellar price I picked it up for under 10$ at my local Rite Aid a total must have for your mascara collection.

This maybelline mascara is one of the very first mascara that I ever used it's has been really long since I have been using it. I have used lots of mascara since all these years and have had my favourites but I always keep this mascara in stock for days when I need more natural looking and easily washable mascara which is fuss free even while removing my makeup. This doesn't clumps or get flaky. Its quiet affordable and works great. I would definitely recommend this mascara.
