I LOVE THIS MASCARA!! It has everything I look for in a mascara! It gives my sad Asian lashes awesome volume, length, and most importantly, it holds my curl ALL day (which is very hard to look for for my lashes). I couldn't ask for a better mascara. This has quickly become my HG mascara and I will def. be repurchasing this over and over. I have tried using the waterproof version of the colossal and I honestly don't see a difference between the two ... so I love and recommend both!
This stuff gets my lashes thicker and slightly longer with nice definition, so far, not clumpy or goopy. Doesn't flake or smudge on my oily skin...unless I go swimming. But I haven't been able to find any WP mascara that doesn't gimme raccoon eyes in the pool.
I am shocked this product is getting so many bad reviews. It works great on my lashes and does what it says. I do use a eyelash primer under it and I don't have any trouble with clumping at all from it. I have to use a primer under all my mascara no matter what brand it is. High dollar to cheap they all smudge on me. Also it is great at being water proof but still removes very easy with my coconut oil
This mascara leans towards the wetter ones, which doesn't exactly suit my lashes but still volumizes to a certain extent. It does not look like I'm wearing "falsies"
I bought this mascara yesterday and I wanted to use it while poolside tanning. Well, it's waterproof alright. I love that about it but I cannot use it as an every day mascara because it's so clumpy! Even if I separate my lashes while applying or clean out the wand, the solution is too sticky and makes my lashes look all spidery. I'll just be using this at the beach, pool, or waterpark.
All time favorite mascara! I have very long natural eyelashes, but they are very light and virtually invisible without mascara. I only use waterproof mascaras, as I am a contact wearer and often have to use eye drops during the day. This mascara does not move throughout the day. It is also great at holding curls in the lashes and doesn't leave them feeling waxy. It is a true black color and actually does give a somewhat "false lash efffect".
This is my first review on MakeupAlley.
I am Chinese with straight eyelashes. I have had difficulty finding a mascara that will not straighten my lashes after curling them. The one that works for me is L'Oreal Panoramic Curl Waterproof mascara but sadly it had been discontinued. After looking at all directions for another mascara that works for me, I stumbled upon Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsie Waterproof mascara. I am so happy that the curl stays after curling my lashes with the curler! This mascara also gives you volume. I have not experienced any clumping so far. I will stick with this mascara as long as Maybelline produces them. I will look no further.
At first, I hated this mascara cos of the clumpiness, but my number 1 tip is to make it work and after, you'll love it!! My (other)tip is (to fix the extreme clumpy ness) right before you use the mascara, take a scrap piece of paper, take the wand and take off the excess from the bristles. I wouldn't recommend a tissue cos it'll have bits of it in the mascara and it's really gross. hope it helps!!!
Really good mascara. It does what it says it does; adds volume and makes my lashes all VA-VOOM!!!!
I have long thin lashes that grow straight down so this helps bring them up.
The packaging is uber cute and really secure~
I got this for about $5 at shoppers drug mart. Now, it didn't make my lashes look fake (that's impossible, they're tiny) but I really like this. I got the black drama one. I was kind of scared to try it because a lot of people said it's clumpy but it wasn't clumpy at all for me. The color was a deep black, it added length and volume and kept the curl. The curl does drop after it gets wet but that's expected. It won't come off or smudge in water at all, I went swimming with it on. But its not too hard to take off with a good waterproof makeup remover or just baby oil. I also love the spoon brush, it was probably why I chose to try this over colossal. And the purple tube is really cute. I do feel like covergirl lashblast does a bit of a better job at lengthening but this is easier to take off. I probably will buy this again one day but I want to try some other ones first. All in all, this is a great mascara. I don't like wearing waterproof mascara everyday but if I'm going swimming or something then this is definitely great. :)
