Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Cat Eyes

The collagen enriched formula and unique ‘claw’ brush flick out and extend the look of lashes at the corners – a fierce look with up to seven times more volume.

What we say:
‘I know yellow is huge at the moment but I find the packaging a little alarming for my slightly more conservative tastes; but aren’t the little burnt orange leopard paw prints on the top too cute? The curved “claw” brush definitely makes getting to those pesky little corner lashes much easier and so your eyelashes are indeed, as they said they would be, flicked out and cat-like. And the lengthening is phenomenal. But I am unconvinced by the volume, to be honest. Perhaps if I, as they suggest, add a stroke of gel liner to my lash line and wing it out at the corners it would give the impression of more volume. But that aside, the mascara is a handy stand-by – to go with one or other of the Maybelline lipsticks that are always floating around in my bag. I am addicted to them. Inexpensive, glide on easily, great colours, and they don’t taste funny like I find some other brands do. And did I mention the price?’

One of my faves

Ameera Essa

This is a mascara i use quite often. Yellow colossal tube. Claw, curved brush with tiny bristles. I like the formula that is slightly wet and dries to a matte finish. It does not make my lashes crunchy and definitely helps define my lashes well. I love that this mascara can be used alone or layered. It does flake slightly but it isnt something that i cant deal with. I have repurchased this thrice already and i will probably continue to do so.

Sexy lashes in a flash

I love this mascara from its daring yellow packaging and its pawprints, right down to its applicator. I have puny fair eyelashes, so I thought getting them anywhere near a cat eye look would take a miracle, but I find with this product, after just two applications my eyelashes look long, curvaceous and feline! The curved brush at the end of the wand prevents clumping and curls the lashes beautifully. I also don’t find any residue dropping off during the day. My hubby loves to tell me when my mascara is falling off my face ( he isn’t a makeup fan) He never complains when I use this product of Maybelline’s! It lasts all day and is easy to remove at night. What more could a girl ask for in the perfect mascara?

Fluttering My Eyelashes

As someone who relies on my eyes to do a lot of talking I love to accentuate them and create as much drama around them as possible. This mascara is a definite favourite because it gives me instant dramatic lashes to flutter for entire nights at a time.

Luscious Lashes

This is probably one of the best mascaras that I have used in a long time. I find the application wand very easy to use and it gives me the most gorgeous, thick and defined lashes….photo-ready!

Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Janneke Gerber

I love the Maybelinne Colossal Mascaras. They are my all time favourite mascaras. You get great volume, fanned out separated lashes that holds the curl all day. Furthermore, you don’t get fallout throughout the day on the under eye area, and although I never use waterproof mascaras, I didn’t struggle with smudging.

The wand is nice and big, and you can really get into your lashes to make them look amazing. Definitely recommend the colossal one!

Length and volume in one!


I am a loyal fan of the Maybelline Volum’ Express mascara. It is easy to apply, leaves lashes looking perfectly manicured and it is easy to remove with makeup remover.
