Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara: Review

I'd never tried a Maybelline mascara so when I saw this one for £4.99 a few months ago in Superdrug I had to pick it up. Maybelline say that their 'collagen enriched formula and unique “claw” brush flick out and extend the look of lashes at the corners-a fierce look with up to 7x more volume!' so I thought it was worth a try.

I love the shape and size of the brush as it's just the right shape for getting to the roots of your lashes and then coating most of them at once.

I haven't realised that this mascara gives more drama to the corners of my lashes but I do find it a great mascara for volume, separation, length and curl. I usually curl my lashes as naturally they're quite straight and some mascaras don't give or hold a curl for long enough, however when I tried this one without curling it gave a similar effect and lasted all day without falling.

One good coat on uncurled lashes

Two good coats on uncurled lashes

When I wear this I usually just do one good coat as I enjoy that look a lot more and it gives a kind of wispy effect, which is less dramatic for everyday but can be applied for a more dramatic lash look.

I would definitely repurchase this, however there are so many mascaras out there to try I intend to try a lot more.

  1. So long and lovely! I have to curl my lashes within an inch of my life to get them to look like this!


    1. thanks, my lashes are quite straight naturally but this mascara did a great job of curling them and keeping the curl without eyelash curlers xxx

  2. I think I'll be giving this a try next time I'm out shopping! Looks great.
