Finally, I opened my Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express mascara after realizing that I won't be using much of the Lash Stiletto. Turbo Boost is one of my most preferred mascaras but the idea of The Colossal promising to give 10x volume instead of Turbo Boost's 5x was intriguing.
I'm all for the funky yellow and purple packaging, now on to the review.
The brush is massive! No wonder they called this The Colossal. Coating the top lashes didn't pose any problems but getting the bottom lashes was a wee bit annoying. Similar to the Lash Stiletto, the formula has a rose-like scent that according to the boyfriend, smells more like cockroach.
As with most Western mascaras, the formula is heavy and weighs my puny Asian lashes down despite curling prior to application. The lashes separated and volumized decently but nothing wow-worthy.
I normally use this with more dramatic eye makeup looks where prominent lashes are not called for. The mascara washes off with warm water but since I highly doubt I'll wear this on its own, that extra point doesn't really count for anything. However, it does remain smudgeproof for long hours.
Retails at about $7 in drugstores. This mascara is not available in Malaysian stores. Please refer to sgdrugstore.
