This is a review for the non-waterproof version.

What I look for in mascaras (in order of preference):
1. Curling
2. Doesn't flake/smudge
3. Volumizing
4. Lengthening

I was expecting more wow and oomph from this product based on its name (colossal, cat eyes) but it failed my expectations. First off, I found that not a lot of product went on the brush. I had to pump (I know, a big no-no) or wiggle the brush just to get more product on it. When applied on my eyelashes, it didn't add any volume or length. It also didn't hold a curl. It looked like I only had a little bit of mascara even if I already put on several coats. Normally I would consider this a win because i don't like heavy looking makeup but like I said with a mascara name like this I was expecting more than your everyday mascara look.

The one thing I liked about this mascara was it didn't flake or smear. Maybe it helped that I had on UD eyeshadow primer so my eyelids weren't oily. I also wore the mascara on my upper eyelash only.

If you are looking for a minimal everyday look then this mascara is for you. Otherwise, skip it.

I think this mascara is good and bad at the same time. It evenly separates my sparse and short lashes but it doesn't give me volume. It lengthens and lifts. I love the packaging, but it didn't give me that cat eye affect. It made my lashes really stiff which I don't like. It works best with other mascaras that have volume to layer on top of it. My favorite combination is the Maybelline Rocket mascara layered on top. Maybe a person with fuller lashes might like it more than I did? Overall I would not repurchase.

I've really enjoyed this mascara.
The curve on the wand is helpful capturing all my lashes. The bristles have a good depth and i feel like they get right down to the root of the lashes. Also the brush is thin enough to reach right in to the inner corner lashes.
I've found the formula is great for lengthening and adding a moderate amount of volume. Overall I've been really happy with it, however I am a mascara hussie and can't stay faithful - always looking for something slightly better.

I actually use two mascara's in the morning and I apply this one second, it helps to bring more depth into my lashes and covers more lashes at a time.

I've just bought this mascara and i'm yet to see how it wears for a whole day in this hot weather but atm i love it! I have naturally curled lashes but this mascara makes them hold the curl amazingly and holds them up really well. My lashes aren't even that long but with 3 coats they look pretty long and best of all they make them look thick which is what i look for! Thick but not clumpy. At least for me anyway. So glad I found this, so much cheaper than benefit's they're real so much more affordable. If it helps i'm using the cat eyes mascara but it comes in a different new tube so maybe different formulas! But yup in love for now x

I have had this product for a month or two now and it is one of the worst i have tried. I mean the curved brush is nice and that's about it. My lashes stick and look like spider legs.

I love this mascara because of the wand which distributes even coats of mascara and separates and lengthens my lashes without it clumping. The downside is it FLAKES. Within a couple of hours I looked at the mirror and was shocked to see smudges and flakes on mascara under my eyes! I went a whole day looking like a damn raccoon and I didn't even rub my eyes. Hopefully they have a waterproof formula.

I'm Asian and I have very thin and flat lashes, I've tried many drug store mascara and luxury mascara and only two that works like heaven!
This is the only drugstore mascara that actually says what it advertises as. It's give lots of volume and leaving the tip of your lashing pointy and long. The waterproof version is sooooo good! It really hold the curl, gives great volume and length. Love the brush and how it's curved for your lashes, it's soooooo good for your bottom lashes, it really makes your bottom lashes look like extensions. I will repurchased this again! Absolutely amazing!
