Colossal Maybelline Mascara

maybelline mascara

Mascara names can be a little long and exaggerated these days and the Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof mascara by Maybelline is no exception. Despite the hyperbolic name, this is actually a great mascara. I really like the big brush which coats your lashes in a single swipe and has a great effect. A single coat creates a great daytime look, as you can see in the photo, and two thin coats are great for a special occasion or night out. It might not be the best choice for those with sensitive eyes though. Prolonged use irritates my eyes, but if I alternate it with another mascara I seem to be fine.

Namen van mascara’s zijn tegenwoordig lang en overdreven en de Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof mascara van Maybelline is daar een goed voorbeeld van. Ondanks de ingewikkelde naam is dit wel een fijne mascara. De grote borstel brengt de mascara in een makkelijke beweging aan en zorgt voor mooi volume. Een laag geeft een mooi effect voor overdag, zoals je kunt zien in de foto, en twee dunne laagjes staan mooi en intens voor een speciale gelegenheid. Let wel op als je gevoelige ogen hebt. Bij langdurig gebruik raken mijn ogen geΓ―rriteerd, maar als ik het afwissel met een andere mascara gaat het prima.

    Great post Anne, I must say it looks great – but Maybelline products very rarely work for me for some odd reason 😦 Xo

    Deze mascara geeft inderdaad een mooi resultaat. Maar mijn ogen zijn te gevoelig helaas, dus ik gebruik ‘m ook niet meer!

    I am so glad you added that it doesn’t really work too well for sensitive eyes. I have been tempted to buy one of the Maybelline mascaras but it seems it’s a good thing I didn’t. My eyes are very sensitive and I have to be careful since I wear contact lenses. This mascara looks amazing on your lashes! πŸ™‚

      Yeah, it is always so tricky with eyes! I never figured out which ingredient my eyes react to but sometimes they just do. I can wear this if I switch it up every other day with another mascara but that is just trial and error I guess πŸ™‚

        It definitely is! The thing is that it could be a different ingredient in each mascara which effects your eyes too so it is really difficult to know what it actually is. I hope you will have a lovely day, Anne! πŸ˜€

    One of my go-to mascara. Although i find the blue one to give the best results.
