The Good
  • This is the most talked about Mascara in town and not without reason.It instantly revs up your lashes and opens up your eyes.
  • The formula is not too dry nor too runny.It is just the right consistency.
  • Dries up quickly, so no mess if you blink too quickly.
  • Does give volume to the lashes though not the 9x times claimed, but good enough.
  • It is one of the best Mascaras in the market at the given price.A definite bargain buy.
  • Love the packaging: a nice fat yellow tube with purple detailing .It’s a relief from the dull black regular packaging.
  • The dense bristles on the wand ensure that the lashes are coated evenly from root to tip.
  • No clumping.But make sure you wipe off excess product before applying and don’t wait between coats.
  • The product does not dry out in the tube, which was a major problem with my Oriflame mascara.It dried up within a couple of months.
  • Even though it is not waterproof, it still does not wash off easily.But it won’t stand heavy duty tears.
  • Easy to remove which is something the waterproof version cannot boast of and the very reason why I bought the washable version.

The Bad
  • The wand though great otherwise fails to deposit product on the corner lashes.I really have to wiggle and juggle to ensure that the corner lashes are coated and then too I end up with a messy application.
  • After a couple of hours it starts flaking.Nothing major but still.
  • It makes my lashes a bit stiff if I apply a second coat.
  • Although I’m satisfied with the volume it gives, I wish it would add length to the lashes as well.

Love It Or Chuck It 
I bought the Colossal only because everyone was going all gaga about it.I wanted to know what the fuss was all about and now you can count me as a fan.It’s the best mascara out there at the price.Delivers on all it’s claims while being economical.If you are a newbie in the makeup department then this is the best mascara for you. Love It  for everything it does to my lashes and the fat yellow tube.

  1. I don't like the cone-shaped lid, I think it makes it difficult to hold and control it properly and that's why I sometimes smudge Mascara onto my eyelid or underneath my eye by accident

  2. Actually I quite like the cone shaped lid try and hold from the broader side and apply at a 45 degree angle.

  3. I also quite like this. But yes, removing it is a real pain

  4. Not the washable one Nivedita.Try using olive oil to remove mascara.

  5. I already have this mascara, Its awesome!!!!!!

  6. Check these Collosal downloads on the Maybelline website .. love these yaar <3

  7. I want a waterproof mascara for the rainy season but have heard Maybelline one is very very hard to remove ... you can suggest any other mascara or would you suggest the same ?
    i remove my makeup with coconut oil will it work with the waterproof version of this mascara?

  8. Hey Shreya I would suggest not using a waterproof mascara until it is absolutely necessary.These can prove to be more harsh than the regular ones.I normally stay away from waterproof ones so won't be able to tell you which brand to try.The washable version is not bad and won't stray until you cry buckets so it should suit you fine.

  9. that is the reason i have always used washable mascara .. currently using oriflame Visions V brown mascara that comes off very easily with coconut oil. Was wondering if waterproof version is required for rainy season :) since you say it wont come off until i cry buckets guess i'd try this :) thanks

  10. I'm sure you won't go soaking in the rains so the washable one is fine.Volumizing, waterproof etc are all marketing gimmicks.It's more or less the same thing.Read this to know more about mascara's
