MY EXPERIENCE : Monsoon is here !!! And though I love monsoon season more than the hot humid climate of Mumbai a lot of things take a back seat as soon as monsoon sets in. Makeup is one of them.

My daily cosmetic staple is mascara. Even if I don’t wear any other make-up that day, sometimes I’ll curl my lashes and throw on a coat for a polished, wide-eyed effect. I’ve been experimenting with lot of drugstore mascaras recently. While searching a drugstore waterproof  masacara I came across my old favourite Maybelline Colossal Volume Masacara. I always come back to this mascara because it’s the only one that gives me the performance I desire.

I have medium-length lashes that aren’t really curled. After using a curler, I apply 2 coats of this mascara and it holds my curl in place ALL DAY. It thickens & volumizes my lashes to give me nice “Doll Eyes”.  For me 2 coats is a nice natural look, and 3 coats is dramatic. It starts to get clumpy after 4-5 weeks of daily use. But it so cheap that you can throw it away and get a new one.


LASTING POWER : It is WATERPROOF or call it smudgeproof. On my lashes it lasted 9-10 hrs. I once splashed water on my face wearing this mascara and that did not take off the mascara which is awesome but which also means you have to invest in a good makeup remover… I’ve also wore it to the beach and even after a whole day of being owned by the waves, my lashes stayed in place!

PACKAGING : I find the bright yellow packaging very cute. It stands out in my makeup closet.

APPLICATION : It has a really big, fluffy wand that really gives volume. The fine bristles of the wand help cover each and every lash. You will need two coats.

HOW TO USE IT : Sweep brush from root to tip to plump lashes and achieve dramatic volume. Do not let dry between coats

REMOVAL : A good alcohol-free makeup remover or baby oil.

RESULT : The name says it all, it does add volume to the lashes. My lashes look thick in a nice way. It really opens up my eyes. One swipe of the mascara and the tired looking eyes are gone !

Makes eyelashes look A LOT fuller.
Gives length too.
Holds curl very nicely and makes your lashes extremely long.
Doesn’t smudge.
Dramatic black.
Glides on smooth.
Covers every lash!! (And makes the tips look even longer!)
Not thick, not runny.

It takes time to take off

Will I repurchase ? Yes !

FINAL VERDICT : It delivers everything I love in a mascara; volume, thick-looking lashes without clumps, length AND ability to hold a curl.
