Maybelline Colossal Mascara

I have been trying out different mascaras lately.
I have my favorite mascara , Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes
but using it everyday it a bit time consuming. It is a two coat application process and 
then I do have to wash my face extra long to remove the "tubes".
So I am trying to find an awesome mascara for quick day to day looks!
 I had a coupon for Maybelline mascara so I used it on the Colossal
Volume Express. I paid around $5.00 for this.
Brainiac me did not notice I bought waterproof.
I can't hang with waterproof mascara.
It annoys the hell out of me and is so hard to remove.
I really like how this applied. It went on nice and smooth. No clumps.
But it was a BITCH to remove. I use Neutrogena face wash and makeup remover
all in one and it did not TOUCH this mascara. I had to go over my eyes
with a liquid remover. Pain in the butt!!
I think I am going to return this mascara and get the non waterproof version
because I really liked how it looks applied.

Before and After

Have you tried Maybelline Colossal Mascara?
If so what did you think?
What other drug store mascaras are must haves?

Thanks for reading,


  1. Damn, that looks great on you, I wish it wasn't a pain to remove :/ maybe I'll try it out, I don't need to wear mascara too often so I wouldn't have to go through the hassle every night

  2. That does look great on you! I haven't used it but will add it to my (ever growing!) list of things I want ha xx

  3. It's great to hear that you have found a good quality product that is so cheap. Nowadays, cosmetic products seem to be getting more expensive! Hope the non-waterproof version was better!

  4. I purchased the Colossal mascara (regular, not waterproof), this week at Walgreens with a $1 off coupon and they had a huge sale for buy one get one 1/2 off! I love this mascara! The large brush really helps to spread out and thicken my lashes.

  5. Shoot, shoot, shoot! I just saw a two pack of this on clearance at Target, but figured I have a ton of mascara already and passed it up. I love how it looks on you and now I want it. That was over a week ago and I'm sure it's long gone now. *kicks self*
