I always love a good quality mascara and from time to time, I vary range of mascaras from drugstore to high end and also, I keep one thing in mind to restore the luxurious branded mascaras for a special occasional use and the gorgeous wallet-friendly mascaras for a very versatile day-to-day use.

Tale Of Mascara:

Long before, the award-winning Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara served my lashes tremendously well for the whole of winter which not only aided to lift my lashes flawlessly well but also, it added a twist of nutritional aspects to my lashes which is in the form of Keratin (for lash growth) and shea butter (for lash moisture intact). Then came the sumptuously designer mascara which is none-other-than Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara that made a grant entry to add into my high end collection (in the middle of January). And with two step further, I just now landed onto the marvellous drugstore companion – Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara.

Drugstore Mascara Hunt:

First of all, let me tell you how it all started. In the middle of February, I was shopping around Superdrug store and while I was carrying a basket full of so many beauty staples right from facial wipes to lip balm and from makeup brush to blush, I spotted this splendid mascara sitting next to the counter aisle that too on offer and immediately, it came right into my basket right away. Voila!

MAybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara


Having heard so many good reviews about its original version, I think, this time, I made a sensible buy. Look at the packaging! Isn’t it so gorgeous? I absolutely loved the funky colour theme running throughout the packaging which makes the mark of Maybelline NewYork’s 100 years anniversary celebration. Not only it looks so amazing with ravishing colours of blue, red, yellow, black and white but also looks absolutely stunning with the magical patterns of stars and stripes.



Moving along to its functionality, oh my! It has been designed to perfection with so many added features like the tapered shape of the brush, the varied length of the bristles which helps to capture maximum number of lashes in just one stroke and the ascending and descending length of the bristles which assists in sketching the lashes from roots to end. All-in-all, it is very impressive!


  1. Finish off all the eye makeup look before heading onto your lashes.
  2. Using Shu Uemura eyelash curler, curl your lashes effectively well.
  3. Take the mascara wand and apply two or more coats onto your upper and lower lashes by starting from roots to end and more importantly, always remember to make a push and wiggle movement onto the roots of your lashes for maximum volume.
  4. Intensify each stroke by applying the mascara coat both above and below the lashes.
  5. Make the last coat for final touchups so as to get a separate lash look and I’m sure by this time, your lashes will be defined and lifted well too.
  6. Last-but-not-least, this mascara gives a flake-free, smudge-free and clump-free lash look.
  7. Now, your lashes are ready to show off.

  1. I love the packaging on this! Lovely review, Sangeetha! It sounds like a very impressive mascara. I have never tried Maybelline mascaras, actually. My eyes are quite sensitive to mascaras so I get a bit nervous. I am a bit of a L’Oreal mascara addict for that reason. I might give this a go though. It sounds lovely. 😀

    1. I have tried L’oreal mascaras before and I absolutely loved it. The one I’ve used was L’oreal false lash super star mascara which comes as a two wand mascara wherein on one end comes with a mascara primer and the other side with the actual mascara and I’ve used that till last drop.

      1. Oh I have seen that before! Their mascaras are all great. I have used a few different ones. I am currently using the Telescopic false lash mascara from them and it’s absolute perfection. 👌

    2. Even though I have tried so many makeup products from Maybelline NewYork including The Nudes eye shadow palette, the color show nail colours and the master piece precise liquid eyeliner but only thing that I haven’t touched from this brand is mascara and now, I tried it too.

      1. The Nudes eyeshadow palette is beautiful. I don’t own it since I haven’t actually seen it here but it looks lovely! Have you tried Maybelline Bold Matte lipsticks? They are amazing. 😍

      2. Well, that palette is my drugstore favourite. Now I remember, in the lip section, I’ve tried Maybelline NewYork Coloursensational in the shade Naked brown 757 and you know what, I’ve used this lippy long time before and it completely erased from my mind. Oh my, this shade is super matte just like cinnamon brown that is perfect for winter time

      1. No, not really. I have 3 mascaras that I’m currently using. Well, I mostly use Maybelline one, others (L’Oréal and Clinique) from time to time. I don’t remember exact names right now and I don’t want to lie. I’ll be buying a new mascara in May tho.
