Hate this crap. I have short, thin lashes and this doesn't do much for them. Volumizes more than lengthens, but also clumps. I think the main problem is the brush - not soft or brush-like at all, doesn't grab onto my lashes. Will not buy again.
I bought this because my friend had recommended it to me (and it was on sale for $5). I read reviews long ago and never attempted to buy it 'til recently when I ran out of CoverGirl Lash Blast Luxe. I have fine thin but considerably long lashes and I need all the volume this world has to offer!
So I tried it for the first time.. HATED the smell. I hated the smell long before I bought it, I could smell it off of my friend without even trying! I think Maybelline tried to go for a rose/honey scent but it went horribly wrong on their part. I thought my tube went rancid cause it smelt even worse than my friends! I still used it because I thought I was being a little too skeptical. I say it gives volume but nothing dramatic. If you dare to put 3 coats, you'll see clumps. You'll get clumps regardless if you don't use a mascara guard or business card. It also flakes throughout the day and if you're one to touch your eyes, it'll smear and smudge. However, it is a very light weight formula so it doesn't drag down curls.
This is an alright mascara. Def gave me dramatic lashes. But my prob with it is the smell! I don't like it! Also it clumps and flakes a lot. Lash Blast way out preforms this!
I actually think this maybelline mascara works the best for me out of the other drugstore mascaras that I have tried. It definitely gives my lashes more volume(i have short lashes that aren't stick straight, but still short) and that's all I can ask for right? I do wish it lengthened more but oh well, maybelline advertises this as volumizing the lashes more. As my upper lashes are short, so are my bottom lashes but this does help in extending my lashes more. I wish that the packaging weren't so messy though. I always have left over product on the tube and its just ugh. I will repurchase this product again, and I have before in spite of the packaging quality.
AWFUL! Clumpy, heavy, chunky, piece of crap! It actually does smell like roses (how weird!) but not in a pleasant way. I really wish I hadn't ever purchased this. I am giving it to my roomie because she wants to try it for some bizarre reason, but I doubt she will like it either. What a waste. Will update.
This mascara thickens, but not so much keep its curl
it lengthens too
but not as good as lash blast
the packaging is like lash blast.
but not as good.
i recommend though
it gives good volume and thickening
I was bought by many positive reviews and..so stupid..advertising.
It is really nothing special. I have long natural lashes, so I can buy practically any mascara to achieve more or less okay look. So that's why I always look for something exceptional. To be honest, I haven't found any yet, so I keep looking.
As for this mascara, I will not buy it again, it just doesn't stand out. To my mind lashes look too "wet", though it gives volume.
This gives great length and volume, but it clumps horribly ~ if not for that, this would be perfect!
My HG mascara, and I've tried them all. Absolutely love this! I used to be a big fan of the XXL mascaras from Maybelline, but I'm on my third tube of Colossal and I doubt I'll go back for a while! Gives great color, great separation, great thickening, it's just one of those mascaras that can really do it all. I don't need a lot of lengthening as my lashes are already pretty long, so I'm always looking for something thickening. I'm not sure if this is the greatest if you're looking for a lengthening mascara even though it claims to do that well. If you're looking for thick-looking lashes this one's a good bet. I like it both in Classic and Glam Black.
I tried this because it was bogof, I got the waterproof one. It did not add volume to my lashes - I had to swipe it on 3-4x to get a good volume (well I have fine lashes so maybe it was just me but I've had better experiences with others like Lashblast and Rimmel's Extra Super Lash). It did lengthen my lashes a bit but nothing special.
What's so bad about it for me is that I've never experienced more bits of black stuff falling on my face during the day at work than with this. I look at the mirror in the restroom and notice "what's that black stuff on my face?" as if someone drew a black faded line on my face. I might've accidentally rubbed on that part of my face when a bit of black stuff from my eyelash (the fibers or particles of the mascara) fell on it already. And it doesn't happen only once, I always found something everytime I went to the restroom. That is so not good!
