My favourite mascara: Maybelline Colossal Volume Express – Cats Eyes review


Hello you beautiful people.

I hope that you’re all okay. I’ve been meaning to dedicate a whole post to this amazing product for so long, I don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner!

I have tried and tested various mascara over the years, different brands, brushes, high end, low priced and I always  go back to the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express ‘Cat Eyes’.

This is my absolute favourite mascara.


Firstly, no I do not favour this product because my name is Cat and no I do not feel that they have made it for me (I secretly do!). But the main reason I love it is because it gets the job done.

You can buy this mascara from any drug store and supermarket that sells makeup, it’s often usually around the £6-8 mark.

The wand itself is a thin curved brush, giving you the extra length and coverage. Due to the design of the wand, it allows the mascara to be applied evenly from the outer to inner corner and to not give you the 90s spider eye effect (thankfully).

When I do wear it, I feel that my lashes are super long, not clumped up together, and they bring out my favourite asset – my eyes. You only need a 1 or 2 coats, and it lasts all day. Basically, it gives me a lot of confidence and I have received quite a number of compliments when wearing it.

Here’s a lovely little selfie of me wearing the mascara. As you can see there is some lovely length to the lashes on the top and bottom. What’s also great with this product is that, it doesn’t smudge! Yay!

The only downside is how annoying it is on the eyes when you cry. Yeah I have tried and tested this and it bloody kills. There is a waterproof version, but strangely I am not keen on it. Imagine the day when they discontinue it, I’m crying in the corner of the room in pain due to the mascara running down my eyes. Oh the karma!!!

Anyway! What’s your favourite mascara? Have you tried this before?
