Today I have another review for you guys. It’s about the Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme! mascara. It came out only a month (or maybe two) ago. Since I’m a really big fan of Maybelline mascara’s and lots of beautyguru’s raved about it, I decided it was time for me to try this baby out!
I want to start off with discussing the packaging of this product. It’s pretty basic, and looks quite a lot like most Maybelline mascara’s. I still feel like it’s slightly different. I like it, I like the basic Maybelline packaging. It’s yellow just like (at least I think) all the mascara’s from the colossal range and it has purple shiny letters.
Maybelline promises that this is their most extreme volume mascara because of the double pump brush and that it isn’t lumpy. Let’s take a look at that.
This is what the brush looks like. The wand is curved and the bristles are in a cone shape. This has something to do with the “double pump brush”, but I honestly don’t really know if that makes such a difference. But what is important is that the mascara works. That it doesn’t look clumpy and that you get extreme volume.
Applying the mascara goes quite smoothly. I didn’t get some mascara on my lid, but that might just be because I wasn’t super careful. If you don’t like thicker brushes, this might not be your favorite mascara. Most Maybelline mascaras might not be. I do like it. I think this is what creates the volume.
The mascara gives quite a lot of volume in my opinion. It’s not outstanding, but it’s not bad. It’s just the right amount of volume that most good volume mascara’s give you. What I do like about it, is that it also kind of curls my lashes. When I tried the mascara out for these pictures, I didn’t curl my lashes. Just to see what the mascara does with that. I think that they look quite curled. If I wouldn’t know, I would think that the lashes were actually curled before applying it.
I think that this mascara is a great addition to the colossal range and to my make-up collection. I like the way it gives my lashes quite some volume and also some length. It doesn’t look clumpy at all. This might be one of my favorite Maybelline mascara’s, together with the The Rocket and the One by One. I love it! The only little down side is that they (in the Netherlands) don’t have a waterproof version. I would have really loved that!
The Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme! mascara costs €15,49 and is available at almost every drugstore.
