This mascara volumizes like no other. Three coats of this and I look like I have falsies on.

The only color I've tried is Glam Black and so far, I like how very dark it is. It's supposed to dry shiny but I don't see any shine at all which I rather like.

There is a fake roses smell but it doesn't bother me. After a few minutes of wearing this mascara, I don't notice it anymore.

The other thing I'm not keen on is that the brush is big. I can still do the lashes on the corners of my eyes but the bigger brush makes it not as easy as it should be. To be honest, I've tried other big brush mascaras that didn't volumize as much so I doubt that it is the key to this mascara's success.

I tried this mascara because everywhere i went people talked about how good it was, so when rite aid had it 4 buy one get one free i got 2 of them which i super regret especially cuz i get everything out of the package one i get home themascara is good i guess since it's a really dark black and it doesn't clump ur eyelashes 2gether but once it's dry i got all kind of flakes throughout the day i swear after a couple of hours i dnt even wanna blink cuz i felt like every time i blinked i would get flakes so i won't be buying it anymore.

I was a devoted fan of Lash Blast before trying Colossal. I still love Lash Blast, but this mascara is great! While this is a volume mascara, I find it makes my lashes longer rather than fuller. It also is very very dark and is a bit clumpier than other mascaras. But I like that look! So this mascara pretty much ties with Lash Blast for me! I love both!

Not a very good product, the wand starts to clump after about 2-3 weeks of use and it also smudges after a few hours of wear and I use the waterproof formula! It doesn't give much volume either, colossal volume my butt. I wouldn't recommended and wouldn't repurchase. Although I can't say I don't like maybelline mascaras though because I love both full N soft and sky high curves! Seriously try those, they are much better!!

I have purchased this product many times.I really love the volume it gives.My only problem is that when it starts to dry out it gets super flakey,but I'm sure that happens with most products.

This mascara did not work for me. I have short, straight lashes. I would put it on, and if I wanted to apply more it would clump. After a couple hours of wearing it, I would start to see flakes around my eyes. However, it did seperate them good. But Was'nt the product for me.

I love this mascara. It's my every day mascara. It really pumps up the volume of my lashes, and adds just a little bit of length. I know a lot of people were unhappy that this didn't give the same length as lash blast, but this isn't a lengthening mascara. It's also much easier to remove than lash blast. It didn't clump as much as lash blast either, and the brush/handle is much easier to use. One of my favorite drug store mascaras

i hate this mascara! the only thing it did for my lashes was clump them together and dry them out!

you have to struggle with it forever till it looks somewhat decent.

i have naturally long and think lashes so i like to enhance that and this product didn't enhance it at all. it didn't make them longer or separate them, oh but it did add lots of volume but not in a good way just a clumpy way. also the formula isnt smooth its very dry.

I dont recommend this at all.

I really like this mascara. Its really similiar to lash blast but doesnt provide a lot of length for your lashes. But it really does seperate, curl, and give lots of volume for them hense the name. There is however, one thing i really dont like about it. It has a really strong rose scent and it really irritates me. But I do ignore it as much as I can, because overall it is a good mascara. I would buy this again.
