Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara

Hey Ladies,

How have you been??? Finally Sunday is coming to an end, fresh new week starting from tomorrow..So Excited.. Anyways I am ..coz the coming days are gonna be a little special for me.

So today we are gonna speak something about Eyes. Eyes are often conceived as a “window to the soul” and are an important part of our personalities and character.

Beautiful and gorgeous eyes are every woman’s nightmare. When thinking of eye make-up how can one overlook the mascara? Here comes my review for the day. MASCARA .When mascara is applied to the eyelashes, it not only thickens them but also opens up the eye and gives the eyes a more wide and wakeful effect.

I am such a mascara junkie so I'm always on the lookout for a new product that works. I always wanted mascara that would give me BIG lashes.

Product I am gonna review now is Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara

Let’s begin with what Maybelline Claims

Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara comes in a glam black shade. This water-resistant mascara uses waterproof collagen formula that will prevent the eyelashes from losing the dark black color by sweat, tears or even the rain. The mega brush creates a 7X volume instantly and gives complete coverage to all the lashes and makes them look lush and stunning.

This smudge-proof Mascara from Maybelline is ophthalmologist-tested and also made sure to be safe for use while wearing contact lens. Applying the Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara will make your eyes look big, the lashes thick and dark and give your eyes a very plush and lovely look.

Price: Rs. 330 for 10 ml

My Take on the Product:

Let’s begin with the outer part, The yellow color is very attention-grabbing and at the same time the shape of the plastic container is cylindrical/oblique which is striking.

It comes in 2 options – 1) Washable one and 2) Waterproof one.

Coming to the functional Part

The brush is Colossal i.e. HUGE which is the most important part of what it’s going to do with your lashes. The wand is actually ah-may-zingg at separating and volumizing your lash. According to me it has a thick stick so one needs to be cautious while coating the inner lashes and lower lashes.

It sometimes does shed black flakes at the ends of the lashes. The consistency is neither too thick nor too liquidy or Runny.  Just perfect!! Moreover it dries super fast.

For me a single coat applied on the lashes gives a natural look & multiple coats give a dramatic look. But I normally go for 2 coats.

I think it gives just the right amount of definition, without giving you that 'spider-lash' look. 

Overall, I like this mascara.

I've found that most waterproof mascara's do the waterproof job but don't give a good look. This mascara looks awesome on my lashes and it's surprising easy to take off. You can use a baby oil or Olive oil to remove or Maybelline’s MakeupRemover does a great job too.

All in all, this has become my go-to mascara for everyday

Would I recommend?
I definitely love this piece of product from Maybelline…but I really would love to try some other brands like Rimmel, Revlon and Make Up forever.
