YAY!!! I went to Walgreens two weeks ago and found this, i put it on, and was blown away, like a total 5 bagillion jilllian miles away!
My lases now reach my eyebrows!
They're shiny and look like black patent leather..haha, sexiiii!
With this and Almay liner in brown, Almay intense eyeshadow in Hazel, my eyes look BANGIN!
Pro - more volume
CONS - clumps, heavy, spider-like, and I think it is effecting my vision. I don't know if I am getting some product in them or if it is so heavy that I am seeing the tips of my lashes or it is pulling my eyelid down. I feel like I have something on my eyes, almost like when I try out false eyelashes. (Never have gotten the hang of those!) Something about this product is definately irritating to my eyes.
Would definately not buy again and will probably trash this tube after only using it for a week. I really did try to give it a good shot, but this is terrible! The only reason it gets a two is that it does seem to thicken my lashes some, but not worth everything else!
As an afterthought, the smell does not bother me and I have not noticed it "coming off" during the day.
Better than almost all mascaras i've used i will never use anything else i cant even think of a downside when it comes to this mascara
I bought this product because I love thick, full, dark lashes. And that's exactly what I got with this mascara. I would definetly buy again. But you do have to be carefull about it clumping up.
I don't know why this product is getting such bad reviews! I swear by it! It made my lashes look full and thick, it didn't flake, even when I wore it clubbing, and it didn't get cloggy even towards the end of the tube. I recommended it to my friends, and they also loved it, none of us really noticed any bad smell. It stayed on really well but was also easy to clean off.
Plus the tube doesn't get lost in my bag! Always a bonus.
I love this product, and recommend it to anybody.
Hands-down, best mascara I've ever used (LE, HE, etc.) in my life. And as with most women here, I've tried the lot of them.
The poor reviews are so puzzling! Yes, the package is tacky. Yes, I suppose there is a smell.
But this mascara gives me so much length and curl my eyelashes GOT CAUGHT in my eyebrow. I keep applying until they grow and grow like beanstalks--- and they stay that way the whole darn day. It's incredible to behold.
I'm taking off one lipstick because not much thickness/width is given. The lashes and long and smooth and curled, but Colossal doesn't make it seem like I have twice as many as I really do.
I have a sinking feeling this will be discontinued, just when I'd finally found something that gives me Bambi lashes.
I have never thought I'd throw out mascara because of smell. It smells obnoxiusly, it's just plain awful. Whoever thought of putting fragrance into the mascara of that sort should be fired. Mascara itself is ok, not as good as I thought it would be. Has a lot of wetness and it dries quite long...but that smell! will not repurchase.
AWFUL - i dont know what collagen exists in this product but i never noticed it. it would clump right after the first coat and was extremely wet. i would not recommend it to any one - i returned it the next day
This mascara was pretty good - I'd say my rating is more 3.5. It's not the best, but it's definitely pretty good. I find that it didn't make my lashes as thick as I'd like - but I do see some added volume. Staying power is decent, but occasionally a little piece will flake off and I'll get a little black spot under my eye :( Not a HUGE deal though because it only happened a few times.
The tube did get messy after time - and when I was about to use it for the last time (I had it for a few months - after that I usually toss them) I couldn't screw the lid back on.
For the price - this mascara was decent. I would get it again if I found it on sale. If you're looking for volume, it's a good choice..just really take care of the tube so it doesn't get all messy and icky :)
I don't really like this mascara that much. I brought it when it first came out, out of curiosity, and it's not that good. I smells like crap, it's a strong smell for a mascara. My tube, got pretty messy after two/three weeks of using it. That never happened to any of my other mascaras.
It adds nice volume, there's no extra bonus or 'oomph' factor to it.
Two lippies for the volume.
OVERALL: you want dramatic volume get it, BEWARE it smells,
