Maybelline Colossal are the newest mascara line Maybelline offers today. Maybelline makeup has been around for a long time. I remember using Maybelline makeup back in high school in the 1980’s and always liked their mascara better than Revlon, L’Oreal, Cover Girl and Bonne Belle. I used to get Maybelline products in my Christmas stocking and loved it! My favorite product was their Great Lash mascara in the pink bottle with the bright green lid. Maybelline still sells it and it is probably their best seller. However, as times change, so do products. New things come out, old things go away. But there is always a competitor trying to outdo the best product on the market. I like to think that I am a connoisseur of makeup, trying the new products as they come along.
This is my review of the newer Maybelline Colossal mascaras that have recently come out.
This rich and creamy mascara feels good enough to use for everyday. It goes on smooth, and you barely need a second coat. It feels smooth on your lashes all day and I didn’t play with my eyes, and I didn’t feel as if flakes of mascara were falling off my lashes. If you go out to dinner later in the day, you can add a second coat to perk up your eyes, but you probably won’t need it. I definitely like the Pumped Up for an everyday mascara. I accidentally slept without removing it first and I did not have raccoon eyes in the morning. I like that in a mascara, but it’s not something I would recommend doing very often.
I like the Maybelline Colossal Chaotic mascara because it really opens my eyes up with only 2 coats. I have to use at least 4 coats to get the chaotic look which is all clumpy and gothic which, to me, looks like a sexy, hot mess. It was fun to wear this mascara on Casual Friday with jeans, a thermal and a long sweater for a casual, fun look. It would really work well if I were doing a happy hour after work as well.
I also like wearing the Colossal Chaotic mascara with just 2 coats for a professional work day. It goes on smooth, makes my lashes thicker without being clumpy and it doesn’t feel icky like some other mascaras do if you use 2 coats. I wasn’t playing with my eyelashes trying to pick it off.
