Eh. This was an average product. Along with every single Maybelline mascara I tried, the formula was thick and sticky like bubblegum, and made my lashes really sticky with product. I'm not sure if it was the brush, but the product didn't really lengthen or curl, it just builded up on itself!
And it NEVER dried, it just stayed all tacky and sticky, and flaked on my face all day long!
It made me look like a total Muppet, with fat, ridiculous lashes that were really spidery and twisted in every which way, which is SO NOT CUTE.
Packaging was eh.
Formula was bleh.
Love this! I should have bought it earlier. I was reluctant to buy it after reading multiple bad reviews on MUA however, I decided to just 'go for it'. It's very expensive in New Zealand. I spent $24 on this mascara. (I wish I live in America). No clumps at all and my curls stayed.
After trying numerous mascaras, I always find myself coming back to colossal. The first month is always great...I use a ton of coats but it makes my otherwise short lashes look full and long. I need a mascara that volumizes as well as lengthens and this does just that. The first time I bought this product which was about 5 years ago, After I got halfway through the formula, i noticed that it all of a sudden turned into a goop. It was as if someone had put my tube of mascara in the microwave. I thought maybe it was just my product, until this happened to my roommate and my mom. Ever since, that has not happened to me again, so they must have fixed it. My only other complaint is that the product tends to dry out faster than other mascara formulas.
One of my favorite mascaras. It makes my lashes very defined and significantly longer and plush. Makes the lashes stand out and look very bold without any clumps.
One of the most clump free mascaras I have ever used. It also doesn't flake or run much, even on the bottom. Works on the bottom lashes very well!
This is a great every day mascara. If you want super drama this may not be for you but I am one who likes super bold lashes and this makes my lashes really nice, I've gotten a lot of compliments on it.
I wouldn't wear it if I wanted the hugest lashes possible, or if I am going all out. But for an every day look like school, work, errands, it is great. Adds significant volume and fullness, a fair amount of length, nice curl, and you can build and build without clumping.
I highly recommend, and I am a mascara junkie. I have not noticed a strong odor. I have the Glam Black, the darkest shade available to my knowledge. It is like a "Very Black"-it isn't a soft black but not super bold black.
It's not my go to mascara mostly because of the formulation. It leaves my lashes feeling like mini spikes once it dries. Sometimes it hardens my lashes so much that the base of my lashes actually hurt! I will admit that it does a decent job at lengthening and separating my lashes though. It delivers a decent amount of volume as well but I don't think it's worth the discomfort. There are other mascaras with better formulations that are just as good at defining and lengthening your lashes so I'd pass on this one.
I really like this mascara, it gives me lots of length, some volume (which is difficult with my lashes), holds a bit of a curl (more than most) and does not clump. I do get a small amount of product under my eyes as the day goes on (this depends on how active I am, for a non work/more relaxed day I get no product under my eyes at all) which is why the 4 rating instead of 5. I have also noticed I am losing less lashes since switching to this mascara, my lashes look better overall because of this. Would repurchase, this is my new favourite mascara.
Really love this mascara! It works perfectly (actually I only need to put black color on my blond lashes). It dries quickly, doesn't flake, separates well my lashes and the look a bit longer. I've tried mascaras from expensive brands like Lancome and I find this one better (Hypnose flakes like hell!)
Best mascara ever. I love the makeup forever smoky lash, but its expensive and dries out quickly. This mascara is extremely comparable to the mufe one, but at a fraction of the price. I'm on my 5th or 6th tube of this because I still haven't found anything that lengthens and volumizes as well as this mascara
Great mascara and it does the trick. I have tried many expensive brands and gave it a shot at this one based on the reviews here. To my big surprise it works great, I have natural curly, long lashes so always looking for a big brush that will cover each of them, the result is that people think that I have fake eyelashes on, a super compliment :)
I really like this product. I recently got it because i heard a lot it , the price was pretty reasonable. I also like the packaging if was simple yet cool. The product works great and give you lots and lots of volume and makes your eyes so much brighter. It works really well and is one of my favourite mascaras. it is soo amazing!
