Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara - Review

October 24, 2012

Today I have a short review of the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara. I love the leopard spotted detail the packaging has, and really wanted to love the mascara formula. Sadly I can't say that this mascara did much for my lashes. I did like a few things, which I will go over in my review below. 

How this mascara is described by Maybelline:
Colossal lashes go fully feline in one stroke. Lush Collagen formula and claw brush fill out lashes up to 8 x the volume with fabulous cat-like corners, instantly. It's wild!

It says I will get up to 8 times the volume with this mascara, which I sadly didn't see a difference. Maybe because my lashes are already full on their own.  I need length in a mascara, and this did not give any. This could work for you if you are wanting only volume. I did like that it separated my lashes, but other than that I saw no difference between my normal lashes and having the mascara on.

Even though the packaging is super cute, I would not buy this mascara again. I was really hoping it would work for me and it just wasn't what I was looking for. 

Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara retails for $7.77 (price will vary) and can be found where Maybelline is sold. 

Have you tried this mascara? What do you think?

  1. That sucks it didn't do much to your lashes! I generally don't really like Maybelline mascaras, except Megaplush & Illegal Length!

  2. Lately I haven't been impressed by any of the new Maybelline mascaras. I always get sucked in to them and I did want to try this one but maybe I will skip it. I always end up going back to my MAC mascara lol

  3. I love the Megaplush formula, even though I didn't expect to!

  4. I love the Megaplush too! :)

  5. Megaplush is a great mascara! I've never tried Illegal Length, but maybe I should. :)

  6. Which MAC mascara do you use?

  7. I use the Studio Fix Bold Black lash mascara. It's awesome

  8. I love the packaging (I'm a crazy cat lady...) but I keeping reading negative reviews of this mascara, so I think I'll pass...
    I'm mostly looking for curl in my mascara so I don't think it's for me anyway!

  9. Wait until you hear my review on the new Covergirl mascara! :)
