The best. I foolishly bought another more expensive mascara recently after years of using this. After a week of clumps and mess, I went back to The Colossal. Excellent coverage and definition,...

Absolutely love this mascara. I’ve used lots of covergirl mascaras, Lancôme mascaras, revlon, and I love this one for the quality and cost. With one coat, I get volume, separation, and length. I’m...

This was just an ok mascara, nothing special. For some reason it kept stinging my eyes, I've not has a mascara do that. Tossed it. Will not rebuy.

I really enjoy this mascara. It is super no fuss. It makes your lashes look nice and it doesn't flake. However, I feel that there are probably better mascaras out there. I haven't found those yet....

This was a very avergae product for me. I felt like it didn't really do much for my lashes. It didn't really separate my lashes or define them in any way. The size of the wand made made it easier...

This is reasonably good mascara, and considering its under $10 price, a lot better than many over $20 mascaras I’ve tried over the years. It’s not holy grail quality, but it makes my lashes look...

Brush head good at separating lashes on application but formula flakes off and ends up around eyes and too drying. Would not buy again

I’d normally not have chosen this, but it was a sample in a beauty sub box (Classic Black). I have invisibly looking blonde lashes that aren’t special. I don’t pay heed to claims that a mascara is...

This mascara flakes too much for me. It doesn't smudge, but after a few hours sitting at my desk job I had small black flakes under my eyes. I'm not hugely fond of the formula but I don't hate it...
