Pros: bold black color, doesn’t flake off, gives volume, no irritation, perfect for evening makeup
Cons: clumpy, stains the eyelids while application, sticks my eyelashes together

MAYBELLINE The Colossal Go Extreme Volum'

Define your eyes with The Colossal Go Extreme Mascara from Maybelline, a plumping mascara to enhance eyelashes. With an expert collagen, clump-free formula, the black mascara delivers ultimate impact and maximum definition so you can create a look as dramatic as desired. Its specially designed, double curved wand allows more product to reach the super-sized brush for extra volume and bigger, bolder lashes

As it’s already known every girl loves what she hears. We all fall for the sounding promises by a cosmetic product and start longing it. I’m not an exception. Of course I couldn’t pass by this mascara with such promises.

Design: The tube with the mascara is big and fatty, which is an identical feature of all the Maybelline mascaras. The color of the tube is yellow, summer-like and bright.

Size: 9.5 ml (that’s a lot)

Price: $9

Brush: I found it to be too bulky to work with. It’s big, fatty and tapered. The bristles are thick and flexible yet soft. They catch my every lash and coat it well. But I noticed that the product can’t do anything with my lashes in the corners. The bristles just can’t get there.


Application: This is difficult and uncomfortable. It’s such a tricky task for me to coat my lashes well with this mascara in the morning, especially when I’m in a hurry. The problem is that the brush stains my eyelids. I took a photo to show you how my eyes look while application.

+ easy to remove

+ no irritation

- inconvenient brush (subjective)

- stains the eyelids

- sticks my lashes together

- sometimes clumps

My experience with this product:

My lashes covered with the MAYBELLINE The Colossal Go Extreme Volum' mascara become voluminous and beautiful. The product is good if you want to get a “dramatic effect” on your eyes. It isn’t an everyday product for me. I wear it only on holiday or at the weekends. And I want to draw your attention to the distinguishing feature of this mascara (its brush) that has become a disaster for me.


The Colossal Go Extreme Volum' is just an average mascara by Maybelline. I presume that this one’s better than any other “fatty” mascaras by the brand but I don’t rave about it.

I’ll give this product a thumb up, as it’s worth your attention. I won't be picky saying that the mascara stains while application. Who knows maybe that’s me being a bungler. So 4 stars from me.

P.S I decided to attach a photo of my bare lashes for you to see that I don’t have glamorous eyelashes. They are average and that’s it.
