  • "After repurchasing this product six times, it still hasn't gotten old. This is my go to mascara and I use it as a base to keep my lashes curled and volumized. Even with my short lashes, this mascara ACTUALLY keeps my lashes curled! I've tried the Tarte Lights Camera Action, Estee Lauder Sumptous, and Too Faced Better than Sx mascaras, which still made my lashes go back to its straight and boring self. But when I use this mascara under other volumizing masacaras, it keeps my lashes curled throughout the entire day! I probably will never stop repurchasing it (:" in 144 reviews
  • "The product definitely adds volume as it advertises, comparable to some of the more upscale mascara that costs 3X more. As for waterproof I would give it a 9 out of 10. when moisture and temperature is high, the mascara does tend to run, not too bad though." in 103 reviews
  • "Oh my goodness holy grail mascara right here! honestly love this mascara soo much because it does the job to give my lashes lotsss of volume while lengthening it and it just lasts all day and it's just the perfect mascara and I highly recommend it..I've been using this same mascara for years now and always go back to it when I can!:)" in 28 reviews
  • "This is the best mascara I have ever used. It never clumps and lasts a long time. I use it nearly everyday. I've tried other mega volume mascara but it doesn't compare to this and it lasts all day! I do recommend it for anyone looking for some new mascara." in 25 reviews

I have been using this product for probably 10 years.  It is definitely waterproof! I have cried, been stuck in the rain, gone swimming and taken showers with this mascara on, and it stays on probably 90%!  If your eyelashes are sensitive or brittle, it may not be for you because it can be hard to remove sometimes.  My eyelashes don't tend to fall/pull out easily, so it isn't a problem for me.  I have tried so many mascaras over the years, and I always go back to this one.  

It gives great volume (I do not have thick or dark eyelashes), and it doesn't clump too bad. When I apply, I scrape the brush against the side of the bottle a little bit as I am pulling the wand out. That helps to get any excess clumping off of the wand before I apply.

I received this in the mail as a sample and I had never tried it before. I was pleasantly surprised though. It covers more of my lashes than any mascara I've tried thus far. It is not clumpy though and gives me a little length and volume at the same time. Although my lashes do get a little crunchy (I haven't found one that doesn't do that, yet) I still love it for everything it does do right. I will be buying more when my sample runs out.

This was the first mascara I bought from Maybelline 3 years ago and I love it, it leaves your eyelashes with a lot of volume, it separates them super well and it seems that you have false eyelashes, this product is too good, I recommend it 100%🤩🤩🤩🤩

I love this mascara almost as much as I love the Maybelline Rocket Mascara. This mascara was actually the very first mascara I used when I first started wearing makeup. I love how it not only separates your lashes but it also gives them volume. It doesn’t clump your lashes either which is great. I really like the packing as well. I think it’s a very good price. It’s definitely one of the top drugstore mascaras for me.

In the Maybelline volume Express the Colossal mascara is one of the best drugstore mascaras. I love that it takes about one-and-a-half to two coats to get nice eyelashes. I have very short eyelashes and when I don't feel like putting on fake lashes, this mascara does the job. I usually pay about $4.99 for this mascara at my local Walmart. I would recommend this product.

I love Maybelline mascara. I believe that they have some of the best formula on the market. I’ve tried both high end and drugstore mascara and I always recommend Maybelline. I tried this mascara when it first came out and I instantly fell in love because it makes your eyelashes look false. The price point is perfect and I definitely recommend to anyone.

Love these ! I use Maybelline waterproof mascara on all my clients as well as myself. It keeps curled lashes in place for days and does not flake! I like the new one in the gold tube better, because that one looks like falsies, BUT this one is my second and is great at lengthening, volumizing, and defining.

I use a good bit of waterproof mascara, especially in the summer or during sports. I want to make sure that even when I’m sweating my make up isn’t dripping off my face and this stuff works so well! It keeps my lashes full and long and doesn’t come off unless I want it to! Perfect for the beach or pool!

This mascara does actually what it says it as volume to your lashes it does not Clump up at all you can add a lot and actually add false lashes and add some more and it will not clump up it will not dry out Maybelline is my best mascara I use the falsies but Maybelline volume max is equal to that one

Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara - Glam Black by Maybelline is by far my favorite mascara! Trust me I have tried many brands. The wand is simple but allows you to get the inner and outer corners. My favorite things about this mascara is that it is water, sweat, smudge, and tear proof! Lashes are lush and long and really show off these big brown eyes. Also, you can not beat the price and availability. I always have a few on hand to ensure I next run out.
