I tried the Maybelline waterproof Colossal mascara recently ↓
I’m usually a fan of Maybelline mascaras, but this one isn’t one I’ll repurchase. It just wasn’t for me!
But I like that the Waterproof Pumped Up Colossal mascara:
- has a nice formula that feels comfortable on my lashes
- gives my lashes a flirty look that’s natural enough for everyday/daytime wear =) They look very pretty!
- separates and provides length
What I don’t like about Maybelline’s Pumped Up Colossal mascara
The bristles are a little rough on my tightline/lashline skin, if that makes sense. I had to be careful while I applying this mascara.
Pumped Up Colossal has a large wand brush that felt less comfortable to use than I would like. I actually got mascara on my lid and eyeliner area; I had to be very careful for this reason, as well. I prefer smaller brush heads on mascara wands for a more controlled application.
Here are the ingredients for the shade Classic Black. If you like the CoverGirl Lash Blast type of mascara, you’ll probably like this one, too. Try whichever is on sale at the time ;P

Another thing I like about the Maybelline waterproof Pumped Up Colossal Volum’ Express mascara…what a name…is the colorful packaging 🙂 The bright pink and yellow definitely catches my eye and makes it more fun to reach for.
Overall thoughts on the Maybelline Waterproof Colossal Mascara
I like the formula of the mascara, but I’m not a fan of the large wand brush and rough bristles. I will pass on repurchasing this, but if you like these large-shaped volumizing mascaras, you might like this one. The low price point makes it worth a try.
