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.

I understand why some women are complaining that this mascara causes clumps - it depends on how you use the brush. After some trial and error, I have found that the best way to apply this mascara is to use the WIDE ends of the brush for application, avoiding the inner and outer curve of the brush (more mascara gets caught there and ends up unevenly applying to your lashes). Since learning this trick, I have fallen quite in love with this mascara. It lengthens more than any other mascara I have ever used. I feel downright sexy with this mascara on! I don't really use it for everyday looks, but when you need serious lashes, this is the stuff!

I wanted to give this a try since I’ve had many friends use it and I also tend to try many drugstore mascaras especially from Maybelline. This mascara though wasn’t really doing it for me. I feel like I have to add so many layers in order for me to notice a difference in my lashes (mind you I have long thick lashes). I tried it till it all dried out and it wasn’t really good for me at all but i’m glad I got to try it out!

I had very high hopes for this mascara. My friend wears it and her lashes are BOMB. But her lashes, unlike mine, are naturally already long. When I used this mascara I was extremely disappointed because it was really hard to apply, and once I finally got some volume my curl was gone from when I curled them with an eyelash curler. It did make my lashes very volumous, but it clumped so much and flaked throughout the day. I don’t know how my friend gets her lashes looking so bomb, but if you have short straight lashes like me I’d stay away from this one.

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!

I've used other Maybelline mascaras before, but this one WOW! I only ever use one coat of mascara and people thought I had put on fake lashes. The volume is amazing! I also have not noticed it flake on bit. I wear contacts so I get the washable kind and I feel like unless you rub your eyes like crazy (which who would do that with makeup on...) your lashes will stay perfect all day like mine have. I'm very happy with this product. I actually only came on the Maybelline website to say so. :)

My favorite favorite favorite mascara!!!! I only buy this mascara, Lash sensational by Maybelline and another mascara by L'oreal and every single one of these makes my eyelashes look amazing. For the Colossal Volume Maybelline mascara I get the Very Black or Blackest Black. I have long lashes so I curl my lashes before using this mascara and it makes them look beautiful. I do not find this mascara to clump my lashes at all. I love this mascara. Definitely recommend.

I really love this product! I am a sucker for really good drugstore mascaras, and this one is one of my favorites. I use it everyday as a first layer of mascara because it does an amazing job of separating the lashes for a fuller look. The formula and wand work very well together and it dries down fast so you don't have to worry about it transferring to your eyelid. This is one of my go to and a must have if you are trying to get a natural non makeup look.

I have always used Maybelline Mascaras and trying this was one that I would buy over and over.  I always purchase from Walmart or CVS and Maybelline is well packaged, great value for your wallet.  It's not too pricey at all.  I highly recommend others to try Maybelline Volum, you will be amazed at how long your lashes are, how well it last throughout the day and it doesn't smudge like other mascaras do!  #giftcrush

I love this mascara! It's super inexpensive and always goes on my lashes smoothly. It usually lasts me a long time and does not clump up my lashes. It's great for adding extra length and thickening up the appearance of your eyelashes. I always have this in my makeup bag, whether I am using it alone or in combination with another mascara, it is never a let down and a good staple to have in your makeup collection

Does this mascara clump easily? I usually put two coats of mascara on.
