    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't like it I got this mascara (after reading surprisingly good reviews) and honestly it's bad. Made more mess on my eye lids than left the product on my eyelashes. The brush is horrible and way too big made me look like I can't do make up and I've used plenty of good mascaras that don't do that. I used to use Maybelline mascaras when I was younger I have no idea what happened to them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mascara out there! I’ve tried hundreds of mascaras and not one comes close to this one! Lengthens and gives volume! Would never use anything else now I’ve found this...10/10

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! I try other (often more expensive) mascaras but always end up back with this. A great black colour, easy to apply, no clumping, great size brush and truly waterproof.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely stuff! just bought this a few days ago and i'm in love with it! i've never considered using waterproof mascara and i don't know why because normal mascara keeps my asian lashes short and stubby even after they're curled. i curled my lashes and tried this on - it immediately kept the curl and did little to no clumping! stayed put for the 5 hrs i was wearing it - i'm very impressed only problem is that it can be hard to remove if you don't have waterproof makeup remover and may be hard to get rid of if it smudges on the skin. but overall, very pleased with the product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybelline colossal waterproof mascara I love this mascara, I have very short fine eyelashes and also sensitive eyes which always water but this mascara does the trick and makes the most of my eyelashes without making them water.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mascara is great...wrapping is ridiculous! I love this mascara but to open it is ridiculous. How anyone elderly or disabled would get into it is beyond me! I cut myself using nail scissors each time. 2 x double wrappings of tighter than tight hard clear plastic and 2 x stickers to deal with. One sticker never comes of clean leaving sticky stuff to remove with eye makeup remover...the only thing that works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful mascara. Strongly recommend it. I've been buying this since it was first released on to the market. The original brush is the best, which this one has in it. It separates lashes well and the waterproof feature is superb for preventing panda eyes. All the various versions of this one that Maybelline have released aren't as good, especially the brushes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's goes on nicely Ithe oestrogen make lashes looks well presented. However I'm not sure how waterproof it is and unlike my previous waterproof mascara I did wake up with panda eyes! But I would still buy it again

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Mascara I have used this Mascara for a long time now, the mascara goes on evenly, gives a full lash in just 2 applications and never smudges and stays put all day. I always choose waterproof mascara, and when new ones come on the market I buy them to give them a go, but I always find I go back to this one - my favourite.Also seems to last for ages - great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really worth to buy it.!! I bought this mascara like month ago and im really happy with that, i use it only for my bottom lashes (cuz i wear false lashes), it doesn't leave any marks and i have puffy chicks so every other mascara was leaving marks. Just after long hard day at work there are some but i can really recommend it.:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Mascara! I have been using Colossal Waterproof mascara for quite a few years now. I never end up with "panda eyes" - it stays on perfectly. I can easily remove it with eyemake-up remover or baby oil. It is a strong black colour - some are very weak. Also it is easy to build up the length with a couple of coats. Every so often I try a new one that comes to the market and I always go back to this one - it is the best mascara (for me) that I have ever used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow :) Colossal lashes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Colossal Mascara and then some. I was a little scared of the thick brush but converted. No clumping and no need to keep going over and over lashes to get that coverage and lenght. And it stays on, stays curled and doesnt make your lashes look like spider legs

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colossal Mascara [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Mascara comes in a bright yellow tube, looks a bit garish beside the rest of my make up collection. But I was keen to try it and see is it lived up to its claims. The wand is full, not one of those weird plastic ones with a few spikes! (Don't like those) the brush feels a little plasticy but still has the traditional wand style. The product itself is dark and thick. The Mascara did provide volume and helped my lashes appear longer. I used 2 coats. I would purchase this again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All day coverage [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think that this mascara is lovely. I put it on first thing in the morning and it doesn't budge all day long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love mascara's that give big thick black lashes with as little effort as possible - i don't have to patience to spend hours in the morning layering on make up. This mascara does just what i need - a couple of flicks and my lashes look great. I like to back up my natural lashes with false ones when i go out, but with this mascara i didn't feel the need. There's no clumping aswell which is a major bonus and so many people have said to me how nice my eyes look when i'm wearing it. The only thing that would deter me - ever so slightly - from buying again is the colour of the tube - it's bright yellow and stands out in my make up bag. Some people might like this as it's easy to see but i'm not a fan. But that's just me being picky - fab product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colossal brush [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I would like to start by saying I am in no means a professional at makeup and can be quite messy at the best of times when putting on mascara. I believe the colossal mascara is named as such because of the quite large brush. And this poses a problem for me personally as stated before I'm not neat even with a smaller brush which means I was much worse with a bigger one. That aside once I have cleaned off my eyelids and sometimes even under my eyes, it is a good mascara. I find it stays on well throughout the day with minimal smudge as I call it in the corner off my eyes by the end of the day. It doesn't leave black flecks on my face and I can get a pretty even coverage. The brush does put the mascara on how I like it ie none clumpy but still with a decent amount of volume, I put a minimal amount on and even then I manage to make a mess I blame the fact I have large eyes . I like this mascara very much. Everyone has a different preference on the size and shape of the brush depending on what works for them and for me the brush is too big, the liquid itself is good though. And even though I ended up wasting more on my face than my eyes I would still recommend it to people as a bigger brush may work better for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good every day or night mascara! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I loved using this mascara, it doesnt clump at all and doesnt cause any irritation as many other brands have. I like that i can wer just a little bit during the day and layer it up a bit for a more dramatic 'night out' look... and most importantly when i wake up hungover the next morning having not taken my make-up off it didint transger to my pillow or smudge down my face! lol

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mascara Testing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been checking out the claims of this mascara over the period of a couple of weeks now. It has been on a roller coaster at Alton Towers, a funeral, day to day at work and suffered the flushes of a middle aged woman. After all of that I would say it is a really good mascara that doesn't clog or clump. It didn't irritate my contact lenses. It didn't smear too badly.....big tick on this one, don't like panda eyes. It lasted a full day which is great. Yes, there is a but. When I hear the claim "colossal", I think false eye lashes. This did not happen. I could also say you can't make a silk purse from a sows ear. My real comment would be....if you have really long thick lashes then this mascara will make them look colossal. If you have short, thin lashes this isn't going to happen." that aside on the whole I would buy this again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from mascara colossal [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] it applies with no lumps. it lenghtens the lash for a natural long look. I love this product. it's easy to apply and the thick wand makes it so just one coat covers all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings....... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So, in my 40 years I've never found a great mascara so I was excited to try Maybelline Colossal. The pros: easy to apply, no smudging throughout the evening, no clumpy bits, great packaging (so easy to find in my make up basket!!!), it made me look like I had eye liner across my top lid (at the base of my lashes) which I liked! Nice dark black colour. The cons: first impression I did not like the smell which I found lingered, there were too many bristles on the brush - which may sound like a weird thing to say - but I found It meant that it didn't lengthen my lashes and I easily marked the skin on my eyelid so it took extra time touching up which us not great when you're in a rush. Result: not convinced I'd buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing finish on lashes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just love the big brush - it's perfect for creating immediate volume effortless! Only one coat is needed for a great long-lasting coverage. Great value, great quality & perfect application anytime. It really makes my eye lashes long without making them clump together. And it is definitely 100% black.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Coated but not loaded [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I tried this mascara instead of my usual, hoping for great big fat lashes. I have very blonde, decent length but not curly lashes, so any length and thickness is aaaaall good. After one coat of this mascara I could see the lashes were coated but not looking any longer or fatter. I checked on the tube again - it did say volum'express, right?? I waited and coated my lashes again... Although it was a good dark black (and when the time came, it came off easily enough with my micellar water), it didn't give me any more length and didn't give me fatter lashes at all. I won't be buying this in future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flashy Lashes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My Lashes never looked so pretty. My eyes really opened up - which is superb as I am getting older & my eyes look heavier. I wouldn't say you get massive volume - it is more subtle but very flattering. Not a 100% clump free but unless you look very closely you can't tell. It is very easy to remove and totally non-irritating . Definetly a new staple for my make-up bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Maybelline mascara [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I usually use Maybelline mascara (the pink one) and have always been very happy with it, but this one is much, much better. No clumping, a great applicator and lasts really well. What more do you need? Brown colour maybe?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great impact [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I hadn't tried the Maybelline mascaras before but was pretty pleased with this one. It comes in a vibrant yellow packaging which is easy to find in your handbag. The applicator is soft and you can build up the thickness of the mascara by applying more than one layer. My only criticism would be it can feel a bit clumpy if applied more than lightly on your lashes. You can see how effective it is in the photo, surprisingly difficult to photograph your eyes! The smaller photo is natural lashes and the larger is with light application. Very pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant with a base coat [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First impressions: the tube is really huge, it's not something I would carry around on a night out for any touch-ups (mind you, if you had a big bag, it would be easy to find). The brush is a pretty traditional old-style bristle brush, it doesn't look like anything special. On its own, the mascara is ok, volumising, but it didn't blow me away. Before a night out, I would usually use a volumising base coat under my mascara though, and I think with a base coat, this stuff looks pretty amazing. It gave pretty good false-lash length appearance, and lasted quite well. I'd love it if this mascara gave these great results all on its own, but I don't mind using a base coat. The Maybelline Collossal Volume was still better than my current brand!
