Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Big Shot Washable Mascara, Blackest Black, 0.33 fl. oz. - REVIEW

  • Honestly I’m more and more inclined to believe that most mascaras are created equal and that my eyelashes are the culprit for frustrations with the way different formulas go on. Having said that, this one is pretty good.I am perfectionistic about the way my lashes look, both in volume and separation. The look of my lashes in the attached image is from about 25 minutes of working on them until I got the look I wanted. The formula is a nice consistency, not too dry while applying, but doesn’t take too long to dry after you’re done. It holds curl well (so far) and the brush is a nice size/shape and really does seem to catch all your lashes very well.
  • My new fav mascara. I've been using for a while now and am obsessed. It takes longer to try than others so I just use a blow dryer on cook to blow dry my lashes UP. It keeps the height..a little secret that works wonders! Slighty hard to remove but not because it's tough, just alot to get off sometimes..
  • Used this for years and its still awesome. makes my lashes look longer and thicker
  • The Eyeliner is great. I bought it for me, but I'm allergic to it so I gave it to my daughter who absolutely loves it.
  • Loved the brush this came with. Super easy to use and was able to apply the mascara with no clumping. I'm 70 and really appreciated the stay on and no smudge.
  • I like this. I have oily skin and it does transfer to my cheeks. it makes my lashes full and long.
  • Mascara addict, really loving this mascara! It leaves my lashes feeling soft, yet the drama it adds to them is superb.
  • It's my favorite mascara. Dark, easy to remove yet doesn't run too easily and thickens lashes.
  • I read reviews for many different mascaras before I purchased this one so glad this is the one I went with same result as a high dollar brand
  • I gave this for my wife because she rarely put make up on and she loved it! It highlights her beautiful eyes and makes her eyelashes thicker and longer.
  • So for those of you who do not watch the TV show Project Runway, there's a part of every show where the models are getting their makeup done, and there are shameless product promotions of everything from hair care to cosmetics.I usually roll my eyes at the blatant name dropping, ignoring most of what is said and believing even less.Until now.On one show the makeup artist was using this brand of mascara, and made the comment that it made the model's lashes look like she was wearing false eyelashes.They showed a close-up of the model, and it did make her lashes look longer.So, always on the lookout for good mascara, I tried this ..and I LOVE it!!I'm an older gal and my lashes have seemed to have gotten less and thinner over the years, but let me tell you -- this mascara actually makes it looks like I'm wearing false eyelashes!!My thin nearly invisible lashes were instantly longer, thicker, fuller and way more noticeable.I could not believe the difference.(And no, I am not a paid rep of the product or company!) This mascara is simply awesome!They should just re-brand it as "Magic Mascara for Almost Invisible Lashes!"Thanks, Project Runway, for your product promotion, because without it, I'd still be searching for the perfect mascara.: )
  • Mascara junkie here! Have tried it all including the ones by the top designer houses that cost $50 per tube. Silly me. Because none have ever been better than this beauty of a tube! I actually stop and admire my lashes in mirrors when I am wearing this mascara. Big time volume. No clumps. No raccoon eyes. No smears. Stays put but comes off easily too. Just a rock star of a mascara!
  • This mascara makes my lashes longer and fuller.The waterproof version holds up well when crying (ie: funerals) and does not run.
