Create Flawless Fringe!


I know I'm a bit late boarding the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara bandwagon, but writing about a great product never gets old!

After reading several glowing reviews of the popular mascara, I was anxious to try it; but could never justify purchasing it since I already had so many brands of mascaras that were still unopened.

I finally got my chance to indulge in lash-lengthening heaven when I found it on sale at Target - 2 tubes for only $3! This much-hyped mascara definitely lived up to all the reviews. The bristles seemed to gently comb through my lashes perfectly giving them instant length and fullness. It's like false lashes in a bottle!

Have you ever tried this mascara? If so, what are your thoughts?

Since I picked up several tubes during my Target visit, I'd love to give away a tube to 2 lucky readers. Just leave a comment and the winners will be selected randomly and announced tomorrow!

I LOVE it as well...people ask me about false lashes almost everytime I'm out with it on. I just hate the scent.

Ok I love my mascara and never leave my house without. However I have never heard of Colossal mascara. I use the MAC products as well as Maybeline. I love them both except when my eyes water they start to run and really hurt my eyes. So I am on the hunt for a great waterproof mascara. Got any tips. Oh by the way, I really love Target.

that's a great deal -- looks like it's time for me to hit up Target

Oooo pick me pick me pick me! I love mascara too! Currently, I use Zoom by MAC and I have no complaints, however, I'm always willing to try something that might be even better...especially at that price!!

@Antithesis - It was a GREAT deal, I thought it was a mistake!!! LOL

BGG, where you been, sis? This mascara is the business! I love it. It's almost as good as Lash Blast. Which I've been all over these days. :) Happy Tuesday!

I haven't used this or heard about it. Thanks for putting me up on game. I used Maybelline Great Lash (you know the original in the pink and green tube). It gets the job done over here.

I was in Target and saw this same sale, however I hadn't heard any reviews on this product so I was skeptical about trying it out. Glad to hear it works, I will definitely have to try it.

Rebee said...

I never tried this product. Hopefully, I'll win so I can get the chance. I also have too many unopened ones. Lately I've been wanting to try Mabelline's Lash Stiletto.

i must admit, i haven't used it yet for the same reason you stated...i have soooooo many tubes that are still unopened. but if its as good as you say, then i might just have to add to the collection :-)

Glo said...

I NEVER get good deals like that. I'm so jealous. I do want to try this mascara though, I have a girlfriend who swears by it.

Miss Mika said...

2 tubes for $3 dollars??!?!?

I didn't think Target ever had deals like that!

I naturally have long eyelashes, but I am all for a mascara that will define my lashes and seperate them a bit. Does this mascara work that way too? I currently use a mascara from Victoria's Secret that I like, but wish it would define a bit more.

MakeupByRenRen said...

whoa what a steal! i bought a l'oreal mascara for $4.99 and i thought that was a good deal!

Mrs.Young_fashion said...

I hear glowing reviews also, they say it is better than the great lash. Absolutely no clumping!!! Whats better than that?

Atiyah said...

This is my second tube of this product and for some reason they both have had weird smells. I like the product its the smell that turns me off.

Kwana said...

Thanks for the review. I have to give this a try.

MeMe said...

Sounds fantastic. I will try it soon. So BGG, does this mean you're leaving your favorite mascara behind?

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Meme - Great question!! Well, they're both by Maybelline, which is good. To answer your question, I actually switch it up between the two or use both at the same time! I'm a mascara addict! Hopefully, I'm not walking around looking like Tammy Faye Bakker!

Two tubes of mascara for $3, that is a STEAL. Lately I've been using Lacome High Definicils over all the others in my beauty bag. I haven't tried Colossal yet, but I'm always trying to find the next best mascara.

OrangeStar said...

kitty vodka said...

Miracle Girl said...

As a mascara FIEND, I love this bargain buy. It makes it easy to be a recessionista!

Sixty Day Girl said...

i love it too- i just wish they made a waterproof version!!!

Natakue said...

i've never heard of this one...hmmm. right now i'm all about loreal's voluminous in carbon black. i can use it for work and to go out, depending on how many layers i put on. what does this one smell like, since its been mentioned a few times?

I have tried mascara once but I didn't go overboard with it only wore it to a party. I would love to try it again...that does seem like a great deal. Wish I were there.

i use it and this is a trick i use to get the length and seaaration of the lashes. apply mascara to the bottom bottom of your lashes let dry. comb your lashes with a metal eyelash comb. apply mascara to the top lashes let dry. comb through again if needed top off the tips of your lashes with a littly more mascara...looks exactly like false lashes when you are done.

I never wear mascara because half of it always wears off underneath my eyes and I get raccoon eyes. Any tips on how to keep mascara on your lashes? What am I doing wrong?

Soul Natural said...

I don't use mascara,but i'm glad to know that BGG is always ready to keep me on point!

hipshazel said...
