A big fan of Maybelline mascaras, I just couldn’t resist picking up the latest addition to their ever expanding collection on my latest trip to Superdrug this week. The new ‘Cat Eyes’ edition of the wonderful Colossal Volum’ mascara claims to give you a more feline look than the original by accentuating the outer lashes.
The packaging looks identical to the original Colossal, with an added little dash of burnt-orange leopard print on the top.
The want is curved, similar to ‘The Falsies’ design, but slightly smaller, with shorter bristles. The application is nice, and the smaller brush certainly makes it easier to reach those outer lashes (The ginormous brush on the original did make this a little tricky!)
The results are nice too, it’s very lengthening and defines the lashes quite nicely.
The wear is pretty standard for a Maybelline mascara (and often where they fall down a little in my book!) It does stay on all day but if you have watery eyes, or get caught in the rain… it tends to smudge under the eyes.
Overall, this mascara is good. But it’s not great. Try this if you want something new, but if you want the best they have to offer? Stick to ‘The Falsies’ or the original Colossal Volum’.
Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Mascara is available now, priced at £7.99 (but currently £2 off in Superdrug!)
