Just when I thought I have found my latest holy grail mascara, I discovered Maybelline’s newest invention, the Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara.
Similar to Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara, the Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara comes in an uber bright tube with a gigantic brush. It is available in two shades of Black – Classic Black and Glam Black – and contains collagen to plump up lashes for up to 9 times the volume.
The first thing I noticed that is different about this mascara is its scent. Unlike most other mascaras, this actually has a faint rose scent which I personally did not like (I seriously thought it went bad when I first used it). The formula itself feels very wet and does take a little longer to dry than most mascaras but the results are spectacular! My Asian lashes look fuller, darker and simply beautiful! It also stays on really well and never smudges or flakes. Plus despite the huge brush, it reaches everything – including those tiny lower lashes – without clumping or smearing all over the place. I am definitely going to stick with this one for a while.
