MAKEUPALLEY REVIEW: Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara

 



 
 WHAT IS IT?
"Now colossal volume gets a feline edge: Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes' collagen formula and Claw Brush plump and spike out lashes at the corners for a wild cat eye look. Ophthalmologist tested and contact lens safe."




PRODUCT LINK


PRICE/AVAILABILITY
$5.00 - $7.00 at drugstores, supermarkets, and Ulta




THINGS TO RAVE ABOUT
  • Lengthens and Voluminizes with Minimal Coats: "Four complete coats and I was already at a "Falsies" level of extension and height, without the thickness which can become burdensome after several additional coats." by ultraviolet
  • Soft Lashes: "No flaking or hard lashes several hours after product dried. Enough lash flexibility where I would not be worried about raccoon eyes or fallen lashes if I fell asleep before removal." by annacristina
  • Natural Looking: "Gives that great separation and length where I might actually look like I have really long lashes naturally. No clumping or sticking together for me and they stay soft." by bailey22
  • Defining Brush: "The brush! The wand size was perfect for my almond shaped eyes. It really gets into the corners and picks out those stumpy little guys that need defining." by ferndarling


THINGS TO RANT ABOUT
  • Very Wet Formula: "Very wet formula, so it takes forever to dry and thus leaves my lashes not so curled." by mcccbex
  • Smudges: "Unfortunately, it leaves big black smears under my eyes. Yesterday I thought maybe it was my new eyeliner that left the ring, so today the mascara was the only eye makeup I wore. HUGE black smudges under my eyes." by chynnablue


IS IT FOR YOU?


YES:
Need an on-the-go, minimal-coat mascara
Want natural-looking separation and length
 Desire soft, non-sticky/hard lashes


NO:

Unwilling to deal with very wet lashes that tend to smudge after long wear

  1. I almost bought this...Kind of glad I didn't because I don't love smudgy eye products :-( I may try it when my current mascara runs out...and it's on sale...and there are no other mascaras available. lol!

    1. Ah you're not the only one who strongly dislikes smudgy mascara! I've seen a few new mascaras hitting shelves! (Maybelline The Rocket, Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off, etc.)
