We all want instantly voluminous lashes, but time and time again we find ourselves layering coat after coat of mascara only to end up frustrated, covered in mascara, and half-blind from almost poking our eye out (twice). No more, friends, because this classic drugstore find promises to give you voluminous lashes with just one coat; and as a bonus, it won’t flake on you throughout the day.
Introducing Maybelline New York The Colossal Mascara…or should we say reintroducing? Because this little guy has been a mainstay in the budget beauty market since its release back in 2009.
Boasting a collagen-infused formula and lash thickening agents, The Colossal Mascara delivers volume after just one coat, capturing and coating each individual lash from root to tip.
Our panel of SUPERcrew members put this product to the test:
Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York The Colossal Mascara to our SUPERcrew – a panel of 50 members who are the most diligent reviewers on our site (find out what it takes to become a SUPERcrew member here).
Here’s what the SUPERcrew loved about Maybelline New York The Colossal Mascara.
The volume it gave their lashes: Reviewers loved how easily they were able to achieve a voluminous lash look without having to pack on product. Some reviewers mentioned that they really liked that the mascara provided volume while still looking natural.
The smudge-proof formula: Members were impressed by the mascara’s staying power, with many commenting that they didn’t notice the same amount of flaking throughout the day that they experience with other formulas.
The way the brush coated all their lashes: SUPERcrew members loved the fact that the brush grabbed and coated every single lash so they didn’t have to go over the lashes again and again or struggle with applying product to their hard-to-reach lashes.
